Only the latest Rails version gets bug fixes, and the version before that gets security fixes. Severe security issues (as judged by the core team) are backported further; e.g., v5.2.8.1 is a severe security fix that was created after v5.2 was no longer receiving (non-severe) security updates.

A complete list of historic versions is available on RubyGems. New releases are published on the Rails blog.

More information is available on the Ruby on Rails website.
