+* Ruby 1.9 support. The big one. Merb now runs on ruby 1.9.1. This mandated some
+ small changes to the internals as well as some changes to the specs. However,
+ it shouldn't require any changes in your app level code, or at least the merb
+ specific parts of your app level code.
+* Unicorns! Merb is now better behaved as a rack app and works with a
+ file[2]. This change should make working with whatever is the latest and
+ greatest ruby webserver a lot easier.
+* Bugfixes. So many bug fixes. As part of the release process we've done our
+ best to clear out many of the bugs which have been gathering dust over the
+ past year. Some do still remain, but those generally require a more complex
+ solution which needs some thought.
* !!!BC!!! Dependency handling using Bundler
In this version we dropped old way of loading dependencies using the Kernel
extensions and started to use Bundler for dependency management. This allows
us to move the whole dependency handling and gem management outside the
Merb. Therefore we can simplify some internals and remove some of the Kernel
The old Kernel.dependency and Kernel.dependencies will only 'require
gem_name' or 'require require_as' when you call this methods. These methods
will also emit the DEPRECATED warnings when you will use them. If you see
the warning you should move your dependency to the Gemfile or Rakefile.
If you used dependencies to load exact version of the Gem and you have
installed multiple versions of the same gem you now get one more DEPRECATED
warning. This is because we don't use 'gem' command from RubyGems which was
used deep inside to load exact gem version. ALSO THE LATEST VERSION OF THE
Also methods: use_orm, use_test, use_testing_framework and use_template_engine
DON'T require any gems now, you must require it in Gemfile.
Merb generators was changed to generate you Gemfile for your application and
settings instead of the dependencies.rb.
So what still works? Almost everything except it doesn't defer to the Merb
start and doesn't load exact version of gem if more versions are installed:
dependency "json" => works
dependency "rspec", :require_as => 'spec' => works try to require 'spec'
dependency "json", '1.1.6' => works unless you have
>= 1.1.6 installed
dependency "json" { } => works but doesn't yield
