Version 1.1.10 / 2008-10-24

  • No changes to rspec-rails - release to align with bug-fix release in rspec

Version 1.1.9 / 2008-10-20

  • 4 bug fixes

    • require 'rubygems' in script/spec

    • fix failure message for error_on and errors_on (Patch from Mike Vincent). Fixes #566.

Version 1.1.5 / 2008-09-28

IMPORTANT: use 'script/autospec' (or just 'autospec' if you have the rspec gem installed) instead of 'autotest'. We changed the way autotest discovers rspec so the autotest executable won't automatically load rspec anymore. This allows rspec to live side by side other spec frameworks without always co-opting autotest through autotest's discovery mechanism.

ALSO IMPORTANT: Rails v2.1.1 changed assert_select_rjs such that it doesn't always fail when it should. Please see
