## 2.8.0 / August 3 2011
A short release, after the last. Announcing Rails 3.1 asset pipeline support.
The asset pipeline support requires an additiona `load` in your `Capfile`.
You can see information pertaining to the pull request, including the inline
comments here: capistrano/capistrano#35
Documentation will be available soon in the wiki.
* Drop-In Rails 3.1 asset pipeline support. (Chris Griego)
## 2.7.0 / August 3 2011
A fairly substantial release. There are fixes so that current_release works
during dry-runs, (although, apparently still not with bundler.)
The test-suite was also modified to work with Ruby 1.9.2, except in one case
where Ruby 1.9.x calls `to_ary` and `to_a` on mocks, which still makes an
error. 1.9.x has always been supported, but due to lack of maintenance on my
part the tests didn't ever pass.
The `start`, `stop` and `restart` tasks have been reduced to mere hooks into
which extensions can define their own functionality.
The `readme` was also slightly improved, simply tweaks to express how best to
run the test suite.
* Ensure dry-run works with `:current_release` variable (Carol Nichols)
* Added a new variable `:git_submodules_recursive`, setting the value to false
will ensure Git doesn't recursively initialize and checkout submodules. (Konstantin Kudryashov)
* Added an additional task option, `:on_no_matching_servers`, setting the
value to `:continue` will ensure tasks with no matched servers continue
without error, instead of raising `Capistrano::NoMatchingServersError` as was
the previous behaviour. (Chris Griego)
A huge thanks to all contributors, as always!

## 2.6.1 / June 25 2011
A short maintenance release, Some fixes to the verbose flag inside the Git SCM
as well as another argument for the (internal) `variable()` command, offering
a default. The Git SCM is now verbose by default, but can be disabled by
setting `:scm_verbose` to false.
There has been an additional method added to string, within the context of the
test suite, I'm always sketchy about adding additional methods to core
classes, but it's a short term fix until I make the time to patch the test
suite not to compare strings literally. The method is `String#compact`, and is
implemented simply as `self.gsub(/\s+/, ' ')`.
Here's the run-down of changes, and their committers, as always - a huge thank
you to the community that continues to drive Capistrano's development.
* `deploy:setup` now respects `:group_writable` (Daniel Duvall)
* Fixes to `:scm_verbose` for the Git module (defaults to On.) (Matthew Davies)
* Will now copy hidden files in the project's root into the release
directory (Mark Jaquith)
* Now handles closing already-dead connections in a sane way (does not raise
an exception) (Will Bryant)
* Renamed `Capistrano::VERSION::TINY` to `Capistrano::VERSION::PATCH` (Lee
* Removed the `VERSION` file (Lee Hambley)
