dc43e402 » DevL
2011-12-11 Added :use_two_digit_numbers option [Lennart Fridén & Kim Persson]

97 * Deprecated implied layout lookup in controllers whose parent had a explicit layout set:
98
99 class ApplicationController
100 layout "application"
101 end
102
103 class PostsController < ApplicationController
104 end
105
106 In the example above, Posts controller will no longer automatically look up for a posts layout.
107
108 If you need this functionality you could either remove `layout "application"` from ApplicationController or explicitly set it to nil in PostsController. *José Valim*
109
18ceed20 » sikachu
2011-12-06 Allow layout fallback when using `layout` method
110 * Rails will now use your default layout (such as "layouts/application") when you specify a layout with `:only` and `:except` condition, and those conditions fail. *Prem Sichanugrist*
111
112 For example, consider this snippet:
113
114 class CarsController
115 layout 'single_car', :only => :show
116 end
117
118 Rails will use 'layouts/single_car' when a request comes in `:show` action, and use 'layouts/application' (or 'layouts/cars', if exists) when a request comes in for any other actions.

144

2011-12-16 Show detailed exceptions no longer returns true if the request is loc…
152 It's possible to override `show_detailed_exceptions?` in controllers to specify which requests should provide debugging information on errors. The default value is now false, meaning local requests in production will no longer show the detailed exceptions page unless `show_detailed_exceptions?` is overridden and set to `request.local?`.

2011-11-04 Convert CHANGELOGs to Markdown format.
154 * Responders now return 204 No Content for API requests without a response body (as in the new scaffold) *José Valim*
155
156 * Added ActionDispatch::RequestId middleware that'll make a unique X-Request-Id header available to the response and enables the ActionDispatch::Request#uuid method. This makes it easy to trace requests from end-to-end in the stack and to identify individual requests in mixed logs like Syslog *DHH*
157
158 * Limit the number of options for select_year to 1000.
159
160 Pass the :max_years_allowed option to set your own limit.
161
162 *Libo Cannici*
163
164 * Passing formats or handlers to render :template and friends is deprecated. For example: *Nick Sutterer & José Valim*
165
166 render :template => "foo.html.erb"
167
168 Instead, you can provide :handlers and :formats directly as option:
169 render :template => "foo", :formats => [:html, :js], :handlers => :erb
170
171 * Changed log level of warning for missing CSRF token from :debug to :warn. *Mike Dillon*
172
173 * content_tag_for and div_for can now take the collection of records. It will also yield the record as the first argument if you set a receiving argument in your block *Prem Sichanugrist*
174
175 So instead of having to do this:
176
177 @items.each do |item|
178 content_tag_for(:li, item) do
179 Title: <%= item.title %>
180 end
181 end
182
183 You can now do this:
184
185 content_tag_for(:li, @items) do |item|
186 Title: <%= item.title %>
187 end
188
189 * send_file now guess the mime type *Esad Hajdarevic*
190
191 * Mime type entries for PDF, ZIP and other formats were added *Esad Hajdarevic*
192
193 * Generate hidden input before select with :multiple option set to true.
194 This is useful when you rely on the fact that when no options is set,
195 the state of select will be sent to rails application. Without hidden field
196 nothing is sent according to HTML spec *Bogdan Gusiev*
197
198 * Refactor ActionController::TestCase cookies *Andrew White*
199
200 Assigning cookies for test cases should now use cookies[], e.g:
201
202 cookies[:email] = 'user@example.com'
203 get :index
204 assert_equal 'user@example.com', cookies[:email]
205
206 To clear the cookies, use clear, e.g:
207
208 cookies.clear
209 get :index
210 assert_nil cookies[:email]
211
212 We now no longer write out HTTP_COOKIE and the cookie jar is
213 persistent between requests so if you need to manipulate the environment
214 for your test you need to do it before the cookie jar is created.

216 * ActionController::ParamsWrapper on ActiveRecord models now only wrap
217 attr_accessible attributes if they were set, if not, only the attributes
218 returned by the class method attribute_names will be wrapped. This fixes
219 the wrapping of nested attributes by adding them to attr_accessible.

263 * Implement a workaround for a bug in ruby-1.9.3p0 where an error would be raised

265
266 Please see http://redmine.ruby-lang.org/issues/5564 for details of the bug.
267
268 The workaround is to load all conversions into memory ahead of time, and will
269 only happen if the ruby version is *exactly* 1.9.3p0. The hope is obviously that
270 the underlying problem will be resolved in the next patchlevel release of
271 1.9.3.

2011-11-04 Convert CHANGELOGs to Markdown format.
277 ## Rails 3.1.1 (unreleased) ##
278
279 * javascript_path and stylesheet_path now refer to /assets if asset pipelining
280 is on. [Santiago Pastorino]
281 * button_to support form option. Now you're able to pass for example
282 'data-type' => 'json'. [ihower]
283 * image_path and image_tag should use /assets if asset pipelining is turned
284 on. Closes #3126 [Santiago Pastorino and christos]
285 * Avoid use of existing precompiled assets during rake assets:precompile run.
286 Closes #3119 [Guillermo Iguaran]
287 * Copy assets to nondigested filenames too *Santiago Pastorino*
288
289 * Give precedence to `config.digest = false` over the existence of
290 manifest.yml asset digests [christos]
291 * escape options for the stylesheet_link_tag method *Alexey Vakhov*
292
293 * Re-launch assets:precompile task using (Rake.)ruby instead of Kernel.exec so
294 it works on Windows [cablegram]
295 * env var passed to process shouldn't be modified in process method. [Santiago
296 Pastorino]
297 * `rake assets:precompile` loads the application but does not initialize
298 it.
299 To the app developer, this means configuration add in
300 config/initializers/* will not be executed.
301 Plugins developers need to special case their initializers that are
302 meant to be run in the assets group by adding :group => :assets. *José Valim*
303
304 * Sprockets uses config.assets.prefix for asset_path *asee*
305
306 * FileStore key_file_path properly limit filenames to 255 characters. *phuibonhoa*
307
308 * Fix Hash#to_query edge case with html_safe strings. *brainopia*
309
310 * Allow asset tag helper methods to accept :digest => false option in order to completely avoid the digest generation.
311 Useful for linking assets from static html files or from emails when the user could probably look at an older html email with an older asset. [Santiago Pastorino]
312 * Don't mount Sprockets server at config.assets.prefix if config.assets.compile is false. *Mark J. Titorenko*
313
314 * Set relative url root in assets when controller isn't available for Sprockets (eg. Sass files using asset_path). Fixes #2435 *Guillermo Iguaran*
315
316 * Fix basic auth credential generation to not make newlines. GH #2882
317
318 * Fixed the behavior of asset pipeline when config.assets.digest and config.assets.compile are false and requested asset isn't precompiled.
319 Before the requested asset were compiled anyway ignoring that the config.assets.compile flag is false. *Guillermo Iguaran*
320
321 * CookieJar is now Enumerable. Fixes #2795
322
323 * Fixed AssetNotPrecompiled error raised when rake assets:precompile is compiling certain .erb files. See GH #2763 #2765 #2805 *Guillermo Iguaran*
324
325 * Manifest is correctly placed in assets path when default assets prefix is changed. Fixes #2776 *Guillermo Iguaran*
326
327 * Fixed stylesheet_link_tag and javascript_include_tag to respect additional options passed by the users when debug is on. *Guillermo Iguaran*
328
329
330 ## Rails 3.1.0 (August 30, 2011) ##
331
332 * Param values are `paramified` in controller tests. *David Chelimsky*
333
334 * x_sendfile_header now defaults to nil and config/environments/production.rb doesn't set a particular value for it. This allows servers to set it through X-Sendfile-Type. *Santiago Pastorino*
335
336 * The submit form helper does not generate an id "object_name_id" anymore. *fbrusatti*
337
338 * Make sure respond_with with :js tries to render a template in all cases *José Valim*
339
340 * json_escape will now return a SafeBuffer string if it receives SafeBuffer string *tenderlove*
341
342 * Make sure escape_js returns SafeBuffer string if it receives SafeBuffer string *Prem Sichanugrist*
343
344 * Fix escape_js to work correctly with the new SafeBuffer restriction *Paul Gallagher*
345
346 * Brought back alternative convention for namespaced models in i18n *thoefer*
347
348 Now the key can be either "namespace.model" or "namespace/model" until further deprecation.
349
350 * It is prohibited to perform a in-place SafeBuffer mutation *tenderlove*
351
352 The old behavior of SafeBuffer allowed you to mutate string in place via
353 method like `sub!`. These methods can add unsafe strings to a safe buffer,
354 and the safe buffer will continue to be marked as safe.
355
356 An example problem would be something like this:
357
358 <%= link_to('hello world', @user).sub!(/hello/, params[:xss]) %>
359
360 In the above example, an untrusted string (`params[:xss]`) is added to the
361 safe buffer returned by `link_to`, and the untrusted content is successfully
362 sent to the client without being escaped. To prevent this from happening
363 `sub!` and other similar methods will now raise an exception when they are called on a safe buffer.
364
365 In addition to the in-place versions, some of the versions of these methods which return a copy of the string will incorrectly mark strings as safe. For example:
366
367 <%= link_to('hello world', @user).sub(/hello/, params[:xss]) %>
368
369 The new versions will now ensure that *all* strings returned by these methods on safe buffers are marked unsafe.
370
371 You can read more about this change in http://groups.google.com/group/rubyonrails-security/browse_thread/thread/2e516e7acc96c4fb
372
373 * Warn if we cannot verify CSRF token authenticity *José Valim*
374
375 * Allow AM/PM format in datetime selectors *Aditya Sanghi*
376
377 * Only show dump of regular env methods on exception screen (not all the rack crap) *DHH*
378
379 * auto_link has been removed with no replacement. If you still use auto_link
380 please install the rails_autolink gem:
381 http://github.com/tenderlove/rails_autolink
382
383 *tenderlove*
384
385 * Added streaming support, you can enable it with: *José Valim*
386
387 class PostsController < ActionController::Base
388 stream :only => :index
389 end
390
391 Please read the docs at `ActionController::Streaming` for more information.
392
393 * Added `ActionDispatch::Request.ignore_accept_header` to ignore accept headers and only consider the format given as parameter *José Valim*
394
395 * Created `ActionView::Renderer` and specified an API for `ActionView::Context`, check those objects for more information *José Valim*
396
397 * Added `ActionController::ParamsWrapper` to wrap parameters into a nested hash, and will be turned on for JSON request in new applications by default *Prem Sichanugrist*
398
399 This can be customized by setting `ActionController::Base.wrap_parameters` in `config/initializer/wrap_parameters.rb`
400
401 * RJS has been extracted out to a gem. *fxn*
402
403 * Implicit actions named not_implemented can be rendered. *Santiago Pastorino*
404
405 * Wildcard route will always match the optional format segment by default. *Prem Sichanugrist*
406
407 For example if you have this route:
408
409 match '*pages' => 'pages#show'
410
411 by requesting '/foo/bar.json', your `params[:pages]` will be equals to "foo/bar" with the request format of JSON. If you want the old 3.0.x behavior back, you could supply `:format => false` like this:
412
413 match '*pages' => 'pages#show', :format => false
414
415 * Added Base.http_basic_authenticate_with to do simple http basic authentication with a single class method call *DHH*
416
417 class PostsController < ApplicationController
418 USER_NAME, PASSWORD = "dhh", "secret"
419
420 before_filter :authenticate, :except => [ :index ]
421
422 def index
423 render :text => "Everyone can see me!"
424 end
425
426 def edit
427 render :text => "I'm only accessible if you know the password"
428 end
429
430 private
431 def authenticate
432 authenticate_or_request_with_http_basic do |user_name, password|
433 user_name == USER_NAME && password == PASSWORD
434 end
435 end
436 end
437
438 ..can now be written as
439
440 class PostsController < ApplicationController
441 http_basic_authenticate_with :name => "dhh", :password => "secret", :except => :index
442
443 def index
444 render :text => "Everyone can see me!"
445 end
446
447 def edit
448 render :text => "I'm only accessible if you know the password"
449 end
450 end
451
452 * Allow you to add `force_ssl` into controller to force browser to transfer data via HTTPS protocol on that particular controller. You can also specify `:only` or `:except` to specific it to particular action. *DHH and Prem Sichanugrist*
453
454 * Allow FormHelper#form_for to specify the :method as a direct option instead of through the :html hash *DHH*
455
456 form_for(@post, remote: true, method: :delete) instead of form_for(@post, remote: true, html: { method: :delete })
457
458 * Make JavaScriptHelper#j() an alias for JavaScriptHelper#escape_javascript() -- note this then supersedes the Object#j() method that the JSON gem adds within templates using the JavaScriptHelper *DHH*
459
460 * Sensitive query string parameters (specified in config.filter_parameters) will now be filtered out from the request paths in the log file. *Prem Sichanugrist, fxn*
461
462 * URL parameters which return false for to_param now appear in the query string (previously they were removed) *Andrew White*
463
464 * URL parameters which return nil for to_param are now removed from the query string *Andrew White*
465
466 * ActionDispatch::MiddlewareStack now uses composition over inheritance. It is
467 no longer an array which means there may be methods missing that were not tested.
468 * Add an :authenticity_token option to form_tag for custom handling or to omit the token (pass :authenticity_token => false). *Jakub Kuźma, Igor Wiedler*
469
470 * HTML5 button_tag helper. *Rizwan Reza*
471
472 * Template lookup now searches further up in the inheritance chain. *Artemave*
473
474 * Brought back config.action_view.cache_template_loading, which allows to decide whether templates should be cached or not. *Piotr Sarnacki*
475
476 * url_for and named url helpers now accept :subdomain and :domain as options, *Josh Kalderimis*
477
478 * The redirect route method now also accepts a hash of options which will only change the parts of the url in question, or an object which responds to call, allowing for redirects to be reused (check the documentation for examples). *Josh Kalderimis*
479
480 * Added config.action_controller.include_all_helpers. By default 'helper :all' is done in ActionController::Base, which includes all the helpers by default. Setting include_all_helpers to false will result in including only application_helper and helper corresponding to controller (like foo_helper for foo_controller). *Piotr Sarnacki*
481
482 * Added a convenience idiom to generate HTML5 data-* attributes in tag helpers from a :data hash of options:
483
484 tag("div", :data => {:name => 'Stephen', :city_state => %w(Chicago IL)})
485 # => <div data-name="Stephen" data-city-state="[&quot;Chicago&quot;,&quot;IL&quot;]" />
486
487 Keys are dasherized. Values are JSON-encoded, except for strings and symbols. *Stephen Celis*
488
489 * Deprecate old template handler API. The new API simply requires a template handler to respond to call. *José Valim*
490
491 * :rhtml and :rxml were finally removed as template handlers. *José Valim*
492
493 * Moved etag responsibility from ActionDispatch::Response to the middleware stack. *José Valim*
494
495 * Rely on Rack::Session stores API for more compatibility across the Ruby world. This is backwards incompatible since Rack::Session expects #get_session to accept 4 arguments and requires #destroy_session instead of simply #destroy. *José Valim*
496
497 * file_field automatically adds :multipart => true to the enclosing form. *Santiago Pastorino*
498
499 * Renames csrf_meta_tag -> csrf_meta_tags, and aliases csrf_meta_tag for backwards compatibility. *fxn*
500
501 * Add Rack::Cache to the default stack. Create a Rails store that delegates to the Rails cache, so by default, whatever caching layer you are using will be used for HTTP caching. Note that Rack::Cache will be used if you use #expires_in, #fresh_when or #stale with :public => true. Otherwise, the caching rules will apply to the browser only. *Yehuda Katz, Carl Lerche*
502
503
504 ## Rails 3.0.7 (April 18, 2011) ##
505
506 * No changes.
507
508
509 * Rails 3.0.6 (April 5, 2011)
510
511 * Fixed XSS vulnerability in `auto_link`. `auto_link` no longer marks input as
512 html safe. Please make sure that calls to auto_link() are wrapped in a
513 sanitize(), or a raw() depending on the type of input passed to auto_link().
514 For example:
515
516 <%= sanitize(auto_link(some_user_input)) %>
517
518 Thanks to Torben Schulz for reporting this. The fix can be found here:
519 61ee3449674c591747db95f9b3472c5c3bd9e84d
520
521 * Fixes the output of `rake routes` to be correctly match to the behavior of the application, as the regular expression used to match the path is greedy and won't capture the format part by default *Prem Sichanugrist*
522
523 * Fixes an issue with number_to_human when converting values which are less than 1 but greater than -1 *Josh Kalderimis*
524
525 * Sensitive query string parameters (specified in config.filter_parameters) will now be filtered out from the request paths in the log file. *Prem Sichanugrist, fxn*
526
527 * URL parameters which return nil for to_param are now removed from the query string *Andrew White*
528
529 * Don't allow i18n to change the minor version, version now set to ~> 0.5.0 *Santiago Pastorino*
530
531 * Make TranslationHelper#translate use the :rescue_format option in I18n 0.5.0 *Sven Fuchs*
532
533 * Fix regression: javascript_include_tag shouldn't raise if you register an expansion key with nil or [] value *Santiago Pastorino*
534
535 * Fix Action caching bug where an action that has a non-cacheable response always renders a nil response body. It now correctly renders the response body. *Cheah Chu Yeow*
536
537
538 ## Rails 3.0.5 (February 26, 2011) ##
539
540 * No changes.
541
542
543 ## Rails 3.0.4 (February 8, 2011) ##
544
545 * No changes.
546
547
548 ## Rails 3.0.3 (November 16, 2010) ##
549
550 * When ActiveRecord::Base objects are sent to predicate methods, the id of the object should be sent to ARel, not the ActiveRecord::Base object.
551
552 * :constraints routing should only do sanity checks against regular expressions. String arguments are OK.
553
554
555 ## Rails 3.0.2 (November 15, 2010) ##
556
557 * The helper number_to_currency accepts a new :negative_format option to be able to configure how to render negative amounts. *Don Wilson*
558
559
560 ## Rails 3.0.1 (October 15, 2010) ##
561
562 * No Changes, just a version bump.
563
564
565 ## Rails 3.0.0 (August 29, 2010) ##
566
567 * password_field renders with nil value by default making the use of passwords secure by default, if you want to render you should do for instance f.password_field(:password, :value => @user.password) *Santiago Pastorino*
568
569 * Symbols and strings in routes should yield the same behavior. Note this may break existing apps that were using symbols with the new routes API. *José Valim*
570
571 * Add clear_helpers as a way to clean up all helpers added to this controller, maintaining just the helper with the same name as the controller. *José Valim*
572
573 * Support routing constraints in functional tests. *Andrew White*
574
575 * Add a header that tells Internet Explorer (all versions) to use the best available standards support. *Yehuda Katz*
576
577 * Allow stylesheet/javascript extensions to be changed through railties. *Josh Kalderimis*
578
579 * link_to, button_to, and tag/tag_options now rely on html_escape instead of escape_once. *fxn*
580
581 * url_for returns always unescaped strings, and the :escape option is gone. *fxn*
582
583 * Added accept-charset parameter and _snowman hidden field to force the contents
584 of Rails POSTed forms to be in UTF-8 *Yehuda Katz*
585
586 * Upgrade to Rack 1.2.1 *Jeremy Kemper*
587
588 * Allow :path to be given to match/get/post/put/delete instead of :path_names in the new router *Carlos Antônio da Silva*
589
590 * Added resources_path_names to the new router DSL *José Valim*
591
592 * Allow options to be given to the namespace method in the new router *Carlos Antônio da Silva*
593
594 * Deprecate :name_prefix in the new router DSL *José Valim*
595
596 * Add shallow routes back to the new router *Diego Carrion, Andrew White*
597
598 resources :posts do
599 shallow do
600 resources :comments
601 end
602 end
603
604 You can now use comment_path for /comments/1 instead of post_comment_path for /posts/1/comments/1.
605
606 * Add support for multi-subdomain session by setting cookie host in session cookie so you can share session between www.example.com, example.com and user.example.com. #4818 *Guillermo Álvarez*
607
608 * Removed textilize, textilize_without_paragraph and markdown helpers. *Santiago Pastorino*
609
610 * Remove middleware laziness *José Valim*
611
612 * Make session stores rely on request.cookie_jar and change set_session semantics to return the cookie value instead of a boolean. *José Valim*
613
614 * OAuth 2: HTTP Token Authorization support to complement Basic and Digest Authorization. *Rick Olson*
615
616 * Fixed inconsistencies in form builder and view helpers #4432 *Neeraj Singh*
617
618 * Both :xml and :json renderers now forwards the given options to the model, allowing you to invoke them as render :xml => @projects, :include => :tasks *José Valim, Yehuda Katz*
619
620 * Renamed the field error CSS class from fieldWithErrors to field_with_errors for consistency. *Jeremy Kemper*
621
622 * Add support for shorthand routes like /projects/status(.:format) #4423 *Diego Carrion*
623
624 * Changed translate helper so that it doesn’t mark every translation as safe HTML. Only keys with a "_html" suffix and keys named "html" are considered to be safe HTML. All other translations are left untouched. *Craig Davey*
625
626 * New option :as added to form_for allows to change the object name. The old <% form_for :client, @post %> becomes <% form_for @post, :as => :client %> *spastorino*
627
628 * Removed verify method in controllers. *JV*
629 It's now available as a plugin at http://github.com/rails/verification
630
631 * Removed input, form, error_messages_for and error_message_on from views. *JV*
632 It's now available as a plugin at http://github.com/rails/dynamic_form
633
634 * Routes can be scoped by controller module. *Jeremy Kemper*
635
636 # /session => Auth::SessionsController
637 scope :module => 'auth' do
638 resource :session
639 end
640
641 * Added #favicon_link_tag, it uses #image_path so in particular the favicon gets an asset ID *fxn*
642
643 * Fixed that default locale templates should be used if the current locale template is missing *DHH*
644
645 * Added all the new HTML5 form types as individual form tag methods (search, url, number, etc) #3646 *Stephen Celis*
646
647 * Changed the object used in routing constraints to be an instance of
648 ActionDispatch::Request rather than Rack::Request *YK*
649
650 * Changed ActionDispatch::Request#method to return a String, to be compatible
651 with Rack::Request. Added ActionDispatch::Request#method_symbol to
652 return a symbol form of the request method. *YK*
653
654 * Changed ActionDispatch::Request#method to return the original
655 method and #request_method to return the overridden method in the
656 case of methodoverride being used (this means that #method returns
657 "HEAD" and #request_method returns "GET" in HEAD requests). This
658 is for compatibility with Rack::Request *YK*
659
660 * #concat is now deprecated in favor of using <%= %> helpers *YK*
661
662 * Block helpers now return Strings, so you can use <%= form_for @foo do |f| %>.
663 <% form_for do |f| %> still works with deprecation notices *YK*
664
665 * Add a new #mount method on the router that does not anchor the PATH_INFO
666 at the end *YK & CL*
667
668 * Create a new LookupContext object that is responsible for performantly
669 finding a template for a given pattern *JV*
670
671 * Removed relative_url_for in favor of respecting SCRIPT_NAME *YK & CL*
672
673 * Changed file streaming to use Rack::Sendfile middleware *YK*
674
675 * ActionDispatch::Request#content_type returns a String to be compatible with
676 Rack::Request. Use #content_mime_type for the Mime::Type instance *YK*
677
678 * Updated Prototype to 1.6.1 and Scriptaculous to 1.8.3 *ML*
679
680 * Change the preferred way that URL helpers are included into a class*YK & CL*
681
682 # for all helpers including named routes
683 include Rails.application.router.url_helpers
684
685 # for just url_for
686 include Rails.application.router.url_for
687
688 * Fixed that PrototypeHelper#update_page should return html_safe *DHH*
689
690 * Fixed that much of DateHelper wouldn't return html_safe? strings *DHH*
691
692 * Fixed that fragment caching should return a cache hit as html_safe (or it would all just get escaped) *DHH*
693
694 * Added that ActionController::Base now does helper :all instead of relying on the default ApplicationController in Rails to do it *DHH*
695
696 * Added ActionDispatch::Request#authorization to access the http authentication header regardless of its proxy hiding *DHH*
697
698 * Added :alert, :notice, and :flash as options to ActionController::Base#redirect_to that'll automatically set the proper flash before the redirection [DHH]. Examples:
699
700 flash[:notice] = 'Post was created'
701 redirect_to(@post)
702
703 ...becomes:
704
705 redirect_to(@post, :notice => 'Post was created')
706
707 * Added ActionController::Base#notice/= and ActionController::Base#alert/= as a convenience accessors in both the controller and the view for flash[:notice]/= and flash[:alert]/= *DHH*
708
709
710 * Introduce grouped_collection_select helper. #1249 *Dan Codeape, Erik Ostrom*
711
712 * Make sure javascript_include_tag/stylesheet_link_tag does not append ".js" or ".css" onto external urls. #1664 *Matthew Rudy Jacobs*
713
714 * Ruby 1.9: fix Content-Length for multibyte send_data streaming. #2661 *Sava Chankov*
715
716 * Ruby 1.9: ERB template encoding using a magic comment at the top of the file. *Jeremy Kemper*
717 <%# encoding: utf-8 %>
718
719 * Change integration test helpers to accept Rack environment instead of just HTTP Headers *Pratik Naik*
720
721 Before : get '/path', {}, 'Accept' => 'text/javascript'
722 After : get '/path', {}, 'HTTP_ACCEPT' => 'text/javascript'
723
724 * Instead of checking Rails.env.test? in Failsafe middleware, check env["rails.raise_exceptions"] *Bryan Helmkamp*
725
726 * Fixed that TestResponse.cookies was returning cookies unescaped #1867 *Doug McInnes*
727
728
729 ## 2.3.2 Final (March 15, 2009) ##
730
731 * Fixed that redirection would just log the options, not the final url (which lead to "Redirected to #<Post:0x23150b8>") *DHH*
732
733 * Don't check authenticity tokens for any AJAX requests *Ross Kaffenberger/Bryan Helmkamp*
734
735 * Added ability to pass in :public => true to fresh_when, stale?, and expires_in to make the request proxy cachable #2095 *Gregg Pollack*
736
737 * Fixed that passing a custom form builder would be forwarded to nested fields_for calls #2023 *Eloy Duran/Nate Wiger*
738
739 * Form option helpers now support disabled option tags and the use of lambdas for selecting/disabling option tags from collections #837 *Tekin*
740
741 * Added partial scoping to TranslationHelper#translate, so if you call translate(".foo") from the people/index.html.erb template, you'll actually be calling I18n.translate("people.index.foo") *DHH*
742
743 * Fix a syntax error in current_page?() that was prevent matches against URL's with multiple query parameters #1385, #1868 *chris finne/Andrew White*
744
745 * Added localized rescue template when I18n.locale is set (ex: public/404.da.html) #1835 *José Valim*
746
747 * Make the form_for and fields_for helpers support the new Active Record nested update options. #1202 *Eloy Duran*
748
749 <% form_for @person do |person_form| %>
750 ...
751 <% person_form.fields_for :projects do |project_fields| %>
752 <% if project_fields.object.active? %>
753 Name: <%= project_fields.text_field :name %>
754 <% end %>
755 <% end %>
756 <% end %>
757
758
759 * Added grouped_options_for_select helper method for wrapping option tags in optgroups. #977 *Jon Crawford*
760
761 * Implement HTTP Digest authentication. #1230 [Gregg Kellogg, Pratik Naik] Example :
762
763 class DummyDigestController < ActionController::Base
764 USERS = { "lifo" => 'world' }
765
766 before_filter :authenticate
767
768 def index
769 render :text => "Hello Secret"
770 end
771
772 private
773
774 def authenticate
775 authenticate_or_request_with_http_digest("Super Secret") do |username|
776 # Return the user's password
777 USERS[username]
778 end
779 end
780 end
781
782 * Improved i18n support for the number_to_human_size helper. Changes the storage_units translation data; update your translations accordingly. #1634 *Yaroslav Markin*
783 storage_units:
784 # %u is the storage unit, %n is the number (default: 2 MB)
785 format: "%n %u"
786 units:
787 byte:
788 one: "Byte"
789 other: "Bytes"
790 kb: "KB"
791 mb: "MB"
792 gb: "GB"
793 tb: "TB"
794
795 * Added :silence option to BenchmarkHelper#benchmark and turned log_level into a hash parameter and deprecated the old use *DHH*
796
797 * Fixed the AssetTagHelper cache to use the computed asset host as part of the cache key instead of just assuming the its a string #1299 *DHH*
798
799 * Make ActionController#render(string) work as a shortcut for render :file/:template/:action => string. [#1435] [Pratik Naik] Examples:
800
801 \# Instead of render(:action => 'other_action')
802 render('other_action') # argument has no '/'
803 render(:other_action)
804
805 \# Instead of render(:template => 'controller/action')
806 render('controller/action') # argument must not begin with a '/', but contain a '/'
807
808 \# Instead of render(:file => '/Users/lifo/home.html.erb')
809 render('/Users/lifo/home.html.erb') # argument must begin with a '/'
810
811 * Add :prompt option to date/time select helpers. #561 *Sam Oliver*
812
813 * Fixed that send_file shouldn't set an etag #1578 *Hongli Lai*
814
815 * Allow users to opt out of the spoofing checks in Request#remote_ip. Useful for sites whose traffic regularly triggers false positives. *Darren Boyd*
816
817 * Deprecated formatted_polymorphic_url. *Jeremy Kemper*
818
819 * Added the option to declare an asset_host as an object that responds to call (see http://github.com/dhh/asset-hosting-with-minimum-ssl for an example) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
820
821 * Added support for multiple routes.rb files (useful for plugin engines). This also means that draw will no longer clear the route set, you have to do that by hand (shouldn't make a difference to you unless you're doing some funky stuff) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
822
823 * Dropped formatted_* routes in favor of just passing in :format as an option. This cuts resource routes generation in half #1359 *aaronbatalion*
824
825 * Remove support for old double-encoded cookies from the cookie store. These values haven't been generated since before 2.1.0, and any users who have visited the app in the intervening 6 months will have had their cookie upgraded. *Michael Koziarski*
826
827 * Allow helpers directory to be overridden via ActionController::Base.helpers_dir #1424 *Sam Pohlenz*
828
829 * Remove deprecated ActionController::Base#assign_default_content_type_and_charset
830
831 * Changed the default of ActionView#render to assume partials instead of files when not given an options hash [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
832
833 # Instead of <%= render :partial => "account" %>
834 <%= render "account" %>
835
836 # Instead of <%= render :partial => "account", :locals => { :account => @buyer } %>
837 <%= render "account", :account => @buyer %>
838
839 # @account is an Account instance, so it uses the RecordIdentifier to replace
840 # <%= render :partial => "accounts/account", :locals => { :account => @account } %>
841 <%= render(@account) %>
842
843 # @posts is an array of Post instances, so it uses the RecordIdentifier to replace
844 # <%= render :partial => "posts/post", :collection => @posts %>
845 <%= render(@posts) %>
846
847 * Remove deprecated render_component. Please use the plugin from http://github.com/rails/render_component/tree/master *Pratik Naik*
848
849 * Fixed RedCloth and BlueCloth shouldn't preload. Instead just assume that they're available if you want to use textilize and markdown and let autoload require them *David Heinemeier Hansson*
850
851
852 ## 2.2.2 (November 21st, 2008) ##
853
854 * I18n: translate number_to_human_size. Add storage_units: [Bytes, KB, MB, GB, TB] to your translations. #1448 *Yaroslav Markin*
855
856 * Restore backwards compatible functionality for setting relative_url_root. Include deprecation
857
858 * Switched the CSRF module to use the request content type to decide if the request is forgeable. #1145 *Jeff Cohen*
859
860 * Added :only and :except to map.resources to let people cut down on the number of redundant routes in an application. Typically only useful for huge routesets. #1215 *Tom Stuart*
861
862 map.resources :products, :only => :show do |product|
863 product.resources :images, :except => :destroy
864 end
865
866 * Added render :js for people who want to render inline JavaScript replies without using RJS *David Heinemeier Hansson*
867
868 * Fixed that polymorphic_url should compact given array #1317 *hiroshi*
869
870 * Fixed the sanitize helper to avoid double escaping already properly escaped entities #683 *antonmos/Ryan McGeary*
871
872 * Fixed that FormTagHelper generated illegal html if name contained square brackets #1238 *Vladimir Dobriakov*
873
874 * Fix regression bug that made date_select and datetime_select raise a Null Pointer Exception when a nil date/datetime was passed and only month and year were displayed #1289 *Bernardo Padua/Tor Erik*
875
876 * Simplified the logging format for parameters (don't include controller, action, and format as duplicates) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
877
878 * Remove the logging of the Session ID when the session store is CookieStore *David Heinemeier Hansson*
879
880 * Fixed regex in redirect_to to fully support URI schemes #1247 *Seth Fitzsimmons*
881
882 * Fixed bug with asset timestamping when using relative_url_root #1265 *Joe Goldwasser*
883
884
885 ## 2.2.0 RC1 (October 24th, 2008) ##
886
887 * Fix incorrect closing CDATA delimiter and that HTML::Node.parse would blow up on unclosed CDATA sections *packagethief*
888
889 * Added stale? and fresh_when methods to provide a layer of abstraction above request.fresh? and friends [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
890
891 class ArticlesController < ApplicationController
892 def show_with_respond_to_block
893 @article = Article.find(params[:id])
894
895
896 # If the request sends headers that differs from the options provided to stale?, then
897 # the request is indeed stale and the respond_to block is triggered (and the options
898 # to the stale? call is set on the response).
899 #
900 # If the request headers match, then the request is fresh and the respond_to block is
901 # not triggered. Instead the default render will occur, which will check the last-modified
902 # and etag headers and conclude that it only needs to send a "304 Not Modified" instead
903 # of rendering the template.
904 if stale?(:last_modified => @article.published_at.utc, :etag => @article)
905 respond_to do |wants|
906 # normal response processing
907 end
908 end
909 end
910
911 def show_with_implied_render
912 @article = Article.find(params[:id])
913
914 # Sets the response headers and checks them against the request, if the request is stale
915 # (i.e. no match of either etag or last-modified), then the default render of the template happens.
916 # If the request is fresh, then the default render will return a "304 Not Modified"
917 # instead of rendering the template.
918 fresh_when(:last_modified => @article.published_at.utc, :etag => @article)
919 end
920 end
921
922
923 * Added inline builder yield to atom_feed_helper tags where appropriate [Sam Ruby]. Example:
924
925 entry.summary :type => 'xhtml' do |xhtml|
926 xhtml.p pluralize(order.line_items.count, "line item")
927 xhtml.p "Shipped to #{order.address}"
928 xhtml.p "Paid by #{order.pay_type}"
929 end
930
931 * Make PrototypeHelper#submit_to_remote a wrapper around PrototypeHelper#button_to_remote. *Tarmo Tänav*
932
933 * Set HttpOnly for the cookie session store's cookie. #1046
934
935 * Added FormTagHelper#image_submit_tag confirm option #784 *Alastair Brunton*
936
937 * Fixed FormTagHelper#submit_tag with :disable_with option wouldn't submit the button's value when was clicked #633 *Jose Fernandez*
938
939 * Stopped logging template compiles as it only clogs up the log *David Heinemeier Hansson*
940
941 * Changed the X-Runtime header to report in milliseconds *David Heinemeier Hansson*
942
943 * Changed BenchmarkHelper#benchmark to report in milliseconds *David Heinemeier Hansson*
944
945 * Changed logging format to be millisecond based and skip misleading stats [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Went from:
946
947 Completed in 0.10000 (4 reqs/sec) | Rendering: 0.04000 (40%) | DB: 0.00400 (4%) | 200 OK [http://example.com]
948
949 ...to:
950
951 Completed in 100ms (View: 40, DB: 4) | 200 OK [http://example.com]
952
953 * Add support for shallow nesting of routes. #838 *S. Brent Faulkner*
954
955 Example :
956
957 map.resources :users, :shallow => true do |user|
958 user.resources :posts
959 end
960
961 - GET /users/1/posts (maps to PostsController#index action as usual)
962 named route "user_posts" is added as usual.
963
964 - GET /posts/2 (maps to PostsController#show action as if it were not nested)
965 Additionally, named route "post" is added too.
966
967 * Added button_to_remote helper. #3641 *Donald Piret, Tarmo Tänav*
968
969 * Deprecate render_component. Please use render_component plugin from http://github.com/rails/render_component/tree/master *Pratik Naik*
970
971 * Routes may be restricted to lists of HTTP methods instead of a single method or :any. #407 *Brennan Dunn, Gaius Centus Novus*
972 map.resource :posts, :collection => { :search => [:get, :post] }
973 map.session 'session', :requirements => { :method => [:get, :post, :delete] }
974
975 * Deprecated implicit local assignments when rendering partials *Josh Peek*
976
977 * Introduce current_cycle helper method to return the current value without bumping the cycle. #417 *Ken Collins*
978
979 * Allow polymorphic_url helper to take url options. #880 *Tarmo Tänav*
980
981 * Switched integration test runner to use Rack processor instead of CGI *Josh Peek*
982
983 * Made AbstractRequest.if_modified_sense return nil if the header could not be parsed *Jamis Buck*
984
985 * Added back ActionController::Base.allow_concurrency flag *Josh Peek*
986
987 * AbstractRequest.relative_url_root is no longer automatically configured by a HTTP header. It can now be set in your configuration environment with config.action_controller.relative_url_root *Josh Peek*
988
989 * Update Prototype to 1.6.0.2 #599 *Patrick Joyce*
990
991 * Conditional GET utility methods. *Jeremy Kemper*
992 response.last_modified = @post.updated_at
993 response.etag = [:admin, @post, current_user]
994
995 if request.fresh?(response)
996 head :not_modified
997 else
998 # render ...
999 end
1000
1001 * All 2xx requests are considered successful *Josh Peek*
1002
1003 * Fixed that AssetTagHelper#compute_public_path shouldn't cache the asset_host along with the source or per-request proc's won't run *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1004
1005 * Removed config.action_view.cache_template_loading, use config.cache_classes instead *Josh Peek*
1006
1007 * Get buffer for fragment cache from template's @output_buffer *Josh Peek*
1008
1009 * Set config.action_view.warn_cache_misses = true to receive a warning if you perform an action that results in an expensive disk operation that could be cached *Josh Peek*
1010
1011 * Refactor template preloading. New abstractions include Renderable mixins and a refactored Template class *Josh Peek*
1012
1013 * Changed ActionView::TemplateHandler#render API method signature to render(template, local_assigns = {}) *Josh Peek*
1014
1015 * Changed PrototypeHelper#submit_to_remote to PrototypeHelper#button_to_remote to stay consistent with link_to_remote (submit_to_remote still works as an alias) #8994 *clemens*
1016
1017 * Add :recursive option to javascript_include_tag and stylesheet_link_tag to be used along with :all. #480 *Damian Janowski*
1018
1019 * Allow users to disable the use of the Accept header *Michael Koziarski*
1020
1021 The accept header is poorly implemented by browsers and causes strange
1022 errors when used on public sites where crawlers make requests too. You can use formatted urls (e.g. /people/1.xml) to support API clients in a much simpler way.
1023 To disable the header you need to set:
1024 config.action_controller.use_accept_header = false
1025 * Do not stat template files in production mode before rendering. You will no longer be able to modify templates in production mode without restarting the server *Josh Peek*
1026
1027 * Deprecated TemplateHandler line offset *Josh Peek*
1028
1029 * Allow caches_action to accept cache store options. #416. [José Valim]. Example:
1030
1031 caches_action :index, :redirected, :if => Proc.new { |c| !c.request.format.json? }, :expires_in => 1.hour
1032
1033 * Remove define_javascript_functions, javascript_include_tag and friends are far superior. *Michael Koziarski*
1034
1035 * Deprecate :use_full_path render option. The supplying the option no longer has an effect *Josh Peek*
1036
1037 * Add :as option to render a collection of partials with a custom local variable name. #509 *Simon Jefford, Pratik Naik*
1038
1039 render :partial => 'other_people', :collection => @people, :as => :person
1040
1041 This will let you access objects of @people as 'person' local variable inside 'other_people' partial template.
1042
1043 * time_zone_select: support for regexp matching of priority zones. Resolves #195 *Ernie Miller*
1044
1045 * Made ActionView::Base#render_file private *Josh Peek*
1046
1047 * Refactor and simplify the implementation of assert_redirected_to. Arguments are now normalised relative to the controller being tested, not the root of the application. *Michael Koziarski*
1048
1049 This could cause some erroneous test failures if you were redirecting between controllers
1050 in different namespaces and wrote your assertions relative to the root of the application.
1051
1052 * Remove follow_redirect from controller functional tests.
1053
1054 If you want to follow redirects you can use integration tests. The functional test version was only useful if you were using redirect_to :id=>...
1055 * Fix polymorphic_url with singleton resources. #461 *Tammer Saleh*
1056
1057 * Replaced TemplateFinder abstraction with ViewLoadPaths *Josh Peek*
1058
1059 * Added block-call style to link_to [Sam Stephenson/David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1060
1061 <% link_to(@profile) do %>
1062 <strong><%= @profile.name %></strong> -- <span>Check it out!!</span>
1063 <% end %>
1064
1065 * Performance: integration test benchmarking and profiling. *Jeremy Kemper*
1066
1067 * Make caching more aware of mime types. Ensure request format is not considered while expiring cache. *Jonathan del Strother*
1068
1069 * Drop ActionController::Base.allow_concurrency flag *Josh Peek*
1070
1071 * More efficient concat and capture helpers. Remove ActionView::Base.erb_variable. *Jeremy Kemper*
1072
1073 * Added page.reload functionality. Resolves #277. *Sean Huber*
1074
1075 * Fixed Request#remote_ip to only raise hell if the HTTP_CLIENT_IP and HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR doesn't match (not just if they're both present) *Mark Imbriaco, Bradford Folkens*
1076
1077 * Allow caches_action to accept a layout option *José Valim*
1078
1079 * Added Rack processor *Ezra Zygmuntowicz, Josh Peek*
1080
1081
1082 ## 2.1.0 (May 31st, 2008) ##
1083
1084 * InstanceTag#default_time_from_options overflows to DateTime *Geoff Buesing*
1085

1087
1088 * Added session(:on) to turn session management back on in a controller subclass if the superclass turned it off (Peter Jones) *#136*
1089
1090 * Change the request forgery protection to go by Content-Type instead of request.format so that you can't bypass it by POSTing to "#{request.uri}.xml" *Rick Olson*
1091 * InstanceTag#default_time_from_options with hash args uses Time.current as default; respects hash settings when time falls in system local spring DST gap *Geoff Buesing*
1092
1093 * select_date defaults to Time.zone.today when config.time_zone is set *Geoff Buesing*
1094
1095 * Fixed that TextHelper#text_field would corrypt when raw HTML was used as the value (mchenryc, Kevin Glowacz) *#80*
1096
1097 * Added ActionController::TestCase#rescue_action_in_public! to control whether the action under test should use the regular rescue_action path instead of simply raising the exception inline (great for error testing) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1098
1099 * Reduce number of instance variables being copied from controller to view. *Pratik Naik*
1100
1101 * select_datetime and select_time default to Time.zone.now when config.time_zone is set *Geoff Buesing*
1102
1103 * datetime_select defaults to Time.zone.now when config.time_zone is set *Geoff Buesing*

1116 {"post": {"title": "Breaking News"}}
1117
1118 def create
1119 @post = Post.create params[:post]
1120 # ...
1121 end
1122
1123 * add json_escape ERB util to escape html entities in json strings that are output in HTML pages. *Rick Olson*
1124
1125 * Provide a helper proxy to access helper methods from outside views. Closes #10839 *Josh Peek*
1126 e.g. ApplicationController.helpers.simple_format(text)
1127
1128 * Improve documentation. *Xavier Noria, leethal, jerome*
1129
1130 * Ensure RJS redirect_to doesn't html-escapes string argument. Closes #8546 *Josh Peek, eventualbuddha, Pratik Naik*
1131
1132 * Support render :partial => collection of heterogeneous elements. #11491 *Zach Dennis*
1133

1139
1140 * Fixed HTML::Tokenizer (used in sanitize helper) didn't handle unclosed CDATA tags #10071 *esad, packagethief*
1141
1142 * Improve documentation. *Ryan Bigg, Jan De Poorter, Cheah Chu Yeow, Xavier Shay, Jack Danger Canty, Emilio Tagua, Xavier Noria, Sunny Ripert*

1147
1148 * Fixed NumberHelper#number_with_precision to properly round in a way that works equally on Mac, Windows, Linux (closes #11409, #8275, #10090, #8027) *zhangyuanyi*
1149
1150 * Allow the #simple_format text_helper to take an html_options hash for each paragraph. #2448 *François Beausoleil, Chris O'Sullivan*
1151
1152 * Fix regression from filter refactoring where re-adding a skipped filter resulted in it being called twice. *Rick Olson*
1153
1154 * Refactor filters to use Active Support callbacks. #11235 *Josh Peek*
1155
1156 * Fixed that polymorphic routes would modify the input array #11363 *thomas.lee*
1157
1158 * Added :format option to NumberHelper#number_to_currency to enable better localization support #11149 *lylo*
1159
1160 * Fixed that TextHelper#excerpt would include one character too many #11268 *Irfy*

1165
1166 * Fix nested parameter hash parsing bug. #10797 *thomas.lee*
1167
1168 * Allow using named routes in ActionController::TestCase before any request has been made. Closes #11273 *Eloy Duran*
1169
1170 * Fixed that sweepers defined by cache_sweeper will be added regardless of the perform_caching setting. Instead, control whether the sweeper should be run with the perform_caching setting. This makes testing easier when you want to turn perform_caching on/off *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1171
1172 * Make MimeResponds::Responder#any work without explicit types. Closes #11140 *jaw6*
1173
1174 * Better error message for type conflicts when parsing params. Closes #7962 *spicycode, matt*

1183
1184 * Refactor partial rendering into a PartialTemplate class. *Pratik Naik*
1185
1186 * Added that requests with JavaScript as the priority mime type in the accept header and no format extension in the parameters will be treated as though their format was :js when it comes to determining which template to render. This makes it possible for JS requests to automatically render action.js.rjs files without an explicit respond_to block *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1187
1188 * Tests for distance_of_time_in_words with TimeWithZone instances. Closes #10914 *Ernesto Jimenez*
1189
1190 * Remove support for multivalued (e.g., '&'-delimited) cookies. *Jamis Buck*
1191

1194 * Added support for naming concrete classes in sweeper declarations *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1195
1196 * Remove ERB trim variables from trace template in case ActionView::Base.erb_trim_mode is changed in the application. #10098 *Tim Pope, Chris Kampmeier*
1197
1198 * Fix typo in form_helper documentation. #10650 *Xavier Shay, Chris Kampmeier*
1199
1200 * Fix bug with setting Request#format= after the getter has cached the value. #10889 *cch1*
1201
1202 * Correct inconsistencies in RequestForgeryProtection docs. #11032 *Mislav Marohnić*

1209
1210 * TestSession supports indifferent access. #7372 *tamc, Arsen7, mhackett, julik, jean.helou*
1211
1212 * Make assert_routing aware of the HTTP method used. #8039 *mpalmer*
1213 e.g. assert_routing({ :method => 'put', :path => '/product/321' }, { :controller => "product", :action => "update", :id => "321" })
1214
1215 * Make map.root accept a single symbol as an argument to declare an alias. #10818 *bscofield*
1216
1217 e.g. map.dashboard '/dashboard', :controller=>'dashboard'
1218 map.root :dashboard
1219
1220 * Handle corner case with image_tag when passed 'messed up' image names. #9018 *Duncan Beevers, mpalmer*
1221
1222 * Add label_tag helper for generating elements. #10802 *DefV*
1223

1226 * Performance: optimize route recognition. Large speedup for apps with many resource routes. #10835 *oleganza*
1227
1228 * Make render :partial recognise form builders and use the _form partial. #10814 *Damian Janowski*
1229
1230 * Allow users to declare other namespaces when using the atom feed helpers. #10304 *david.calavera*
1231
1232 * Introduce send_file :x_sendfile => true to send an X-Sendfile response header. *Jeremy Kemper*
1233
1234 * Fixed ActionView::Helpers::ActiveRecordHelper::form for when protect_from_forgery is used #10739 *Jeremy Evans*
1235
1236 * Provide nicer access to HTTP Headers. Instead of request.env["HTTP_REFERRER"] you can now use request.headers["Referrer"]. *Michael Koziarski*
1237
1238 * UrlWriter respects relative_url_root. #10748 *Cheah Chu Yeow*
1239
1240 * The asset_host block takes the controller request as an optional second argument. Example: use a single asset host for SSL requests. #10549 *Cheah Chu Yeow, Peter B, Tom Taylor*
1241
1242 * Support render :text => nil. #6684 *tjennings, PotatoSalad, Cheah Chu Yeow*
1243
1244 * assert_response failures include the exception message. #10688 *Seth Rasmussen*
1245
1246 * All fragment cache keys are now by default prefixed with the "views/" namespace *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1247
1248 * Moved the caching stores from ActionController::Caching::Fragments::* to ActiveSupport::Cache::*. If you're explicitly referring to a store, like ActionController::Caching::Fragments::MemoryStore, you need to update that reference with ActiveSupport::Cache::MemoryStore *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1249
1250 * Deprecated ActionController::Base.fragment_cache_store for ActionController::Base.cache_store *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1251

1254 * Fixed rendering of partials with layout when done from site layout #9209 *antramm*
1255
1256 * Fix atom_feed_helper to comply with the atom spec. Closes #10672 *Xavier Shay*
1257
1258 * The tags created do not contain a date (http://feedvalidator.org/docs/error/InvalidTAG.html)

1450
1451
1452 ## 2.0.0 Preview Release (September 29th, 2007) Includes duplicates of changes from 1.12.2 - 1.13.3 ##
1453
1454 * Fixed that render template did not honor exempt_from_layout #9698 *pezra*
1455
1456 * Better error messages if you leave out the :secret option for request forgery protection. Closes #9670 *Rick Olson*
1457
1458 * Allow ability to disable request forgery protection, disable it in test mode by default. Closes #9693 *Pratik Naik*
1459
1460 * Avoid calling is_missing on LoadErrors. Closes #7460. *ntalbott*

1463
1464 * The tag helper may bypass escaping. *Jeremy Kemper*
1465
1466 * Cache asset ids. *Jeremy Kemper*
1467
1468 * Optimized named routes respect AbstractRequest.relative_url_root. #9612 *Daniel Morrison, Jeremy Kemper*
1469

1471
1472 * Rename some RequestForgeryProtection methods. The class method is now #protect_from_forgery, and the default parameter is now 'authenticity_token'. *Rick Olson*
1473

1475
1476 * Secure #sanitize, #strip_tags, and #strip_links helpers against xss attacks. Closes #8877. *Rick Olson, Pratik Naik, Jacques Distler*
1477
1478 This merges and renames the popular white_list helper (along with some css sanitizing from Jacques Distler version of the same plugin).

1484
1485 * Fixed TextHelper#word_wrap for multiline strings with extra carrier returns #8663 *seth*
1486
1487 * Fixed that setting the :host option in url_for would automatically turn off :only_path (since :host would otherwise not be shown) #9586 *Bounga*
1488
1489 * Added FormHelper#label. #8641, #9850 *jcoglan, Jarkko Laine*
1490

1492
1493 * Prevent errors when generating routes for uncountable resources, (i.e. sheep where plural == singluar). map.resources :sheep now creates sheep_index_url for the collection and sheep_url for the specific item. *Michael Koziarski*
1494
1495 * Added support for HTTP Only cookies (works in IE6+ and FF 2.0.5+) as an improvement for XSS attacks #8895 *Pratik Naik, Mark Somerville*
1496

1500
1501 * Added Mime::Type.register_alias for dealing with different formats using the same mime type [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1502
1503 class PostsController < ApplicationController
1504 before_filter :adjust_format_for_iphone
1505
1506 def index
1507 @posts = Post.find(:all)
1508
1509 respond_to do |format|
1510 format.html # => renders index.html.erb and uses "text/html" as the content type
1511 format.iphone # => renders index.iphone.erb and uses "text/html" as the content type
1512 end
1513 end
1514
1515
1516 private
1517 def adjust_format_for_iphone
1518 if request.env["HTTP_USER_AGENT"] && request.env["HTTP_USER_AGENT"][/iPhone/]
1519 request.format = :iphone
1520 end
1521 end
1522 end
1523
1524 * Added that render :json will automatically call .to_json unless it's being passed a string [David Heinemeier Hansson].
1525
1526 * Autolink behaves well with emails embedded in URLs. #7313 *Jeremy McAnally, Tarmo Tänav*
1527
1528 * Fixed that default layouts did not take the format into account #9564 *Pratik Naik*
1529
1530 * Fixed optimized route segment escaping. #9562 *wildchild, Jeremy Kemper*
1531
1532 * Added block acceptance to JavaScriptHelper#javascript_tag. #7527 *Bob Silva, Tarmo Tänav, rmm5t*
1533
1534 * root_path returns '/' not ''. #9563 *Pratik Naik*
1535
1536 * Fixed that setting request.format should also affect respond_to blocks *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1537
1538 * Add option to force binary mode on tempfile used for fixture_file_upload. #6380 *Jonathan Viney*
1539
1540 * Fixed that resource namespaces wouldn't stick to all nested resources #9399 *pixeltrix*
1541
1542 * Moved ActionController::Macros::AutoComplete into the auto_complete plugin on the official Rails svn. #9512 *Pratik Naik*
1543
1544 * Moved ActionController::Macros::InPlaceEditing into the in_place_editor plugin on the official Rails svn. #9513 *Pratik Naik*
1545
1546 * Removed deprecated form of calling xml_http_request/xhr without the first argument being the http verb *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1547
1548 * Removed deprecated methods [David Heinemeier Hansson]:
1549
1550 - ActionController::Base#keep_flash (use flash.keep instead)
1551 - ActionController::Base#expire_matched_fragments (just call expire_fragment with a regular expression)
1552 - ActionController::Base.template_root/= methods (use ActionController#Base.view_paths/= instead)
1553 - ActionController::Base.cookie (use ActionController#Base.cookies[]= instead)
1554
1555 * Removed the deprecated behavior of appending ".png" to image_tag/image_path calls without an existing extension *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1556
1557 * Removed ActionController::Base.scaffold -- it went through the whole idea of scaffolding (card board walls you remove and tweak one by one). Use the scaffold generator instead (it does resources too now!) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1558
1559 * Optimise named route generation when using positional arguments. *Michael Koziarski*
1560
1561 This change delivers significant performance benefits for the most
1562 common usage scenarios for modern rails applications by avoiding the
1563 costly trip through url_for. Initial benchmarks indicate this is
1564 between 6 and 20 times as fast.
1565
1566 * Explicitly require active_record/query_cache before using it. *Jeremy Kemper*
1567
1568 * Fix layout overriding response status. #9476 *lotswholetime*
1569
1570 * Add field_set_tag for generating field_sets, closes #9477. *Damian Janowski*

1572 * Allow additional parameters to be passed to named route helpers when using positional arguments. Closes #8930 *Ian White*
1573
1574 * Make render :partial work with a :collection of Hashes, previously this wasn't possible due to backwards compatibility restrictions. *Pratik Naik*
1575
1576 * request.host works with IPv6 addresses. #9458 *yuya*
1577
1578 * Fix bug where action caching sets the content type to the ActionCachePath object. Closes #9282 *mindforge*
1579
1580 * Find layouts even if they're not in the first view_paths directory. Closes #9258 *caio*
1581
1582 * Major improvement to the documentation for the options / select form helpers. Closes #9038 *Chris Kampmeier, jardeon, wesg*
1583

1587
1588 * Allow you to set custom :conditions on resource routes. *Rick Olson*
1589

1591
1592 * url_for now accepts a series of symbols representing the namespace of the record *Josh Knowles*
1593
1594 * Make :trailing_slash work with query parameters for url_for. Closes #4004 *nov*
1595
1596 * Make sure missing template exceptions actually say which template they were looking for. Closes #8683 *dasil003*
1597
1598 * Fix errors with around_filters which do not yield, restore 1.1 behaviour with after filters. Closes #8891 *Stefan Kaes*
1599
1600 After filters will *no longer* be run if an around_filter fails to yield, users relying on
1601 this behaviour are advised to put the code in question after a yield statement in an around filter.
1602
1603
1604 * Allow you to delete cookies with options. Closes #3685 *Josh Peek, Chris Wanstrath*
1605
1606 * Allow you to render views with periods in the name. Closes #8076 *Norbert Crombach*
1607
1608 render :partial => 'show.html.erb'
1609
1610 * Improve capture helper documentation. #8796 *Chris Kampmeier*
1611
1612 * Prefix nested resource named routes with their action name, e.g. new_group_user_path(@group) instead of group_new_user_path(@group). The old nested action named route is deprecated in Rails 1.2.4. #8558 *David Chelimsky*
1613
1614 * Allow sweepers to be created solely for expiring after controller actions, not model changes *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1615
1616 * Added assigns method to ActionController::Caching::Sweeper to easily access instance variables on the controller *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1617
1618 * Give the legacy X-POST_DATA_FORMAT header greater precedence during params parsing for backward compatibility. *Jeremy Kemper*
1619
1620 * Fixed that link_to with an href of # when using :method will not allow for click-through without JavaScript #7037 *Steven Bristol, Josh Peek*
1621
1622 * Fixed that radio_button_tag should generate unique ids #3353 *Bob Silva, Rebecca, Josh Peek*
1623
1624 * Fixed that HTTP authentication should work if the header is called REDIRECT_X_HTTP_AUTHORIZATION as well #6754 *Mislav Marohnić*
1625
1626 * Don't mistakenly interpret the request uri as the query string. #8731 *Pratik Naik, Jeremy Kemper*
1627
1628 * Make ActionView#view_paths an attr_accessor for real this time. Also, don't perform an unnecessary #compact on the @view_paths array in #initialize. Closes #8582 *dasil003, julik, Rick Olson*
1629
1630 * Tolerate missing content type on multipart file uploads. Fix for Safari 3. *Jeremy Kemper*
1631
1632 * Deprecation: remove pagination. Install the classic_pagination plugin for forward compatibility, or move to the superior will_paginate plugin. #8157 *Josh Peek*
1633
1634 * Action caching is limited to GET requests returning 200 OK status. #3335 *tom@craz8.com, halfbyte, Dan Kubb, Josh Peek*
1635
1636 * Improve Text Helper test coverage. #7274 *Rob Sanheim, Josh Peek*

1639
1640 * Improve UrlRewriter tests. #7207 *Rich Collins*
1641
1642 * Resources: url_for([parent, child]) generates /parents/1/children/2 for the nested resource. Likewise with the other simply helpful methods like form_for and link_to. #6432 *mhw, Jonathan Vaught, lotswholetime*
1643
1644 * Assume html format when rendering partials in RJS. #8076 *Rick Olson*
1645
1646 * Don't double-escape url_for in views. #8144 *Rich Collins, Josh Peek*
1647
1648 * Allow JSON-style values for the :with option of observe_field. Closes #8557 *kommen*
1649
1650 * Remove RAILS_ROOT from backtrace paths. #8540 *Tim Pope*
1651
1652 * Routing: map.resource :logo routes to LogosController so the controller may be reused for multiple nestings or namespaces. *Jeremy Kemper*
1653
1654 * render :partial recognizes Active Record associations as Arrays. #8538 *Kamal Fariz Mahyuddin*
1655
1656 * Routing: drop semicolon and comma as route separators. *Jeremy Kemper*
1657
1658 * request.remote_ip understands X-Forwarded-For addresses with nonstandard whitespace. #7386 *moses*
1659
1660 * Don't prepare response when rendering a component. #8493 *jsierles*
1661
1662 * Reduce file stat calls when checking for template changes. #7736 *alex*
1663
1664 * Added custom path cache_page/expire_page parameters in addition to the options hashes [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1665
1666 def index
1667 caches_page(response.body, "/index.html")
1668 end
1669
1670 * Action Caching speedup. #8231 *Stefan Kaes*
1671
1672 * Wordsmith resources documentation. #8484 *marclove*
1673
1674 * Fix syntax error in code example for routing documentation. #8377. *Norbert Crombach*
1675
1676 * Routing: respond with 405 Method Not Allowed status when the route path matches but the HTTP method does not. #6953 *Josh Peek, defeated, Dan Kubb, Coda Hale*
1677
1678 * Add support for assert_select_rjs with :show and :hide. #7780 *dchelimsky*
1679
1680 * Make assert_select's failure messages clearer about what failed. #7779 *dchelimsky*
1681
1682 * Introduce a default respond_to block for custom types. #8174 *Josh Peek*
1683
1684 * auto_complete_field takes a :method option so you can GET or POST. #8120 *zapnap*
1685
1686 * Added option to suppress :size when using :maxlength for FormTagHelper#text_field #3112 *Tim Pope*
1687
1688 * catch possible WSOD when trying to render a missing partial. Closes #8454 *Jonathan del Strother*
1689
1690 * Rewind request body after reading it, if possible. #8438 *s450r1*
1691
1692 * Resource namespaces are inherited by their has_many subresources. #8280 *marclove, Geoff Garside*
1693
1694 * Fix filtered parameter logging with nil parameter values. #8422 *choonkeat*
1695
1696 * Integration tests: alias xhr to xml_http_request and add a request_method argument instead of always using POST. #7124 *Nik Wakelin, François Beausoleil, Wizard*
1697
1698 * Document caches_action. #5419 *Jarkko Laine*
1699
1700 * Update to Prototype 1.5.1. *Sam Stephenson*
1701
1702 * Allow routes to be decalred under namespaces [Tobias Lütke]:
1703
1704 map.namespace :admin do |admin|
1705 admin.root :controller => "products"
1706 admin.feed 'feed.xml', :controller => 'products', :action => 'feed', :format => 'xml'
1707 end
1708
1709 * Update to script.aculo.us 1.7.1_beta3. *Thomas Fuchs*
1710
1711 * observe_form always sends the serialized form. #5271 *Manfred Stienstra, normelton@gmail.com*
1712
1713 * Parse url-encoded and multipart requests ourselves instead of delegating to CGI. *Jeremy Kemper*
1714
1715 * select :include_blank option can be set to a string instead of true, which just uses an empty string. #7664 *Wizard*
1716
1717 * Added url_for usage on render :location, which allows for record identification [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1718
1719 render :xml => person, :status => :created, :location => person
1720
1721 ...expands the location to person_url(person).
1722
1723 * Introduce the request.body stream. Lazy-read to parse parameters rather than always setting RAW_POST_DATA. Reduces the memory footprint of large binary PUT requests. *Jeremy Kemper*
1724
1725 * Add some performance enhancements to ActionView.
1726
1727 * Cache base_paths in @@cached_base_paths
1728 * Cache template extensions in @@cached_template_extension
1729 * Remove unnecessary rescues
1730
1731 * Assume that rendered partials go by the HTML format by default
1732
1733 def my_partial
1734 render :update do |page|
1735 # in this order
1736 # _foo.html.erb
1737 # _foo.erb
1738 # _foo.rhtml
1739 page.replace :foo, :partial => 'foo'
1740 end
1741 end
1742
1743 * Added record identifications to FormHelper#form_for and PrototypeHelper#remote_form_for [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
1744
1745 <% form_for(@post) do |f| %>
1746 ...
1747 <% end %>
1748
1749 This will expand to be the same as:
1750
1751 <% form_for :post, @post, :url => post_path(@post), :html => { :method => :put, :class => "edit_post", :id => "edit_post_45" } do |f| %>
1752 ...
1753 <% end %>
1754
1755 And for new records:
1756
1757 <% form_for(Post.new) do |f| %>
1758 ...
1759 <% end %>
1760
1761 This will expand to be the same as:
1762
1763 <% form_for :post, @post, :url => posts_path, :html => { :class => "new_post", :id => "new_post" } do |f| %>
1764 ...
1765 <% end %>
1766
1767 * Rationalize route path escaping according to RFC 2396 section 3.3. #7544, #8307. *Jeremy Kemper, Chris Roos, begemot, jugend*
1768
1769 * Added record identification with polymorphic routes for ActionController::Base#url_for and ActionView::Base#url_for [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
1770
1771 redirect_to(post) # => redirect_to(posts_url(post)) => Location: http://example.com/posts/1
1772 link_to(post.title, post) # => link_to(post.title, posts_url(post)) => <a href="/posts/1">Hello world</a>
1773
1774 Any method that calls url_for on its parameters will automatically benefit from this.
1775
1776 * Removed deprecated parameters_for_method_reference concept (legacy from before named routes) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1777
1778 * Add ActionController::Routing::Helpers, a module to contain common URL helpers such as polymorphic_url. *Nicholas Seckar*
1779
1780 * Included the HttpAuthentication plugin as part of core (ActionController::HttpAuthentication::Basic) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1781
1782 * Modernize documentation for form helpers. *Jeremy McAnally*
1783
1784 * Add brief introduction to REST to the resources documentation. *fearoffish*
1785
1786 * Fix various documentation typos throughout ActionPack. *Henrik N*
1787
1788 * Enhance documentation and add examples for url_for. *Jeremy McAnally*
1789
1790 * Fix documentation typo in routes. *Norbert Crombach, pam*
1791
1792 * Sweep flash when filter chain is halted. *Caio Chassot <lists@v2studio.com>*
1793
1794 * Fixed that content_tag with a block will just return the result instead of concate it if not used in a ERb view #7857, #7432 *michael.niessner*
1795
1796 * Replace the current block/continuation filter chain handling by an implementation based on a simple loop. #8226 *Stefan Kaes*
1797
1798 * Update UrlWriter to accept :anchor parameter. Closes #6771. *Chris McGrath*
1799
1800 * Added RecordTagHelper for using RecordIdentifier conventions on divs and other container elements [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1801
1802 <% div_for(post) do %> <div id="post_45" class="post">
1803 <%= post.body %> What a wonderful world!
1804 <% end %> </div>
1805
1806 * Added page[record] accessor to JavaScriptGenerator that relies on RecordIdentifier to find the right dom id [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1807
1808 format.js do
1809 # Calls: new Effect.fade('post_45');
1810 render(:update) { |page| page[post].visual_effect(:fade) }
1811 end
1812
1813 * Added RecordIdentifier to enforce view conventions on records for dom ids, classes, and partial paths *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1814
1815 * Added map.namespace to deal with the common situation of admin sections and the like *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1816
1817 Before:
1818
1819 map.resources :products, :path_prefix => "admin", :controller => "admin/products", :collection => { :inventory => :get }, :member => { :duplicate => :post }
1820 map.resources :tags, :name_prefix => 'admin_product_', :path_prefix => "admin/products/:product_id", :controller => "admin/product_tags"
1821 map.resources :images, :name_prefix => 'admin_product_', :path_prefix => "admin/products/:product_id", :controller => "admin/product_images"
1822 map.resources :variants, :name_prefix => 'admin_product_', :path_prefix => "admin/products/:product_id", :controller => "admin/product_variants"
1823
1824 After:
1825
1826 map.namespace(:admin) do |admin|
1827 admin.resources :products,
1828 :collection => { :inventory => :get },
1829 :member => { :duplicate => :post },
1830 :has_many => [ :tags, :images, :variants ]
1831 end
1832
1833 * Added :name_prefix as standard for nested resources [David Heinemeier Hansson]. WARNING: May be backwards incompatible with your app
1834
1835 Before:
1836
1837 map.resources :emails do |emails|
1838 emails.resources :comments, :name_prefix => "email_"
1839 emails.resources :attachments, :name_prefix => "email_"
1840 end
1841
1842 After:
1843
1844 map.resources :emails do |emails|
1845 emails.resources :comments
1846 emails.resources :attachments
1847 end
1848
1849 This does mean that if you intended to have comments_url go to /emails/5/comments, then you'll have to set :name_prefix to nil explicitly.
1850
1851 * Added :has_many and :has_one for declaring plural and singular resources beneath the current *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1852
1853 Before:
1854
1855 map.resources :notes do |notes|
1856 notes.resources :comments
1857 notes.resources :attachments
1858 notes.resource :author
1859 end
1860
1861 After:
1862
1863 map.resources :notes, :has_many => [ :comments, :attachments ], :has_one => :author
1864
1865 * Added that render :xml will try to call to_xml if it can [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Makes these work:
1866
1867 render :xml => post
1868 render :xml => comments
1869
1870 * Added :location option to render so that the common pattern of rendering a response after creating a new resource is now a 1-liner *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1871
1872 render :xml => post.to_xml, :status => :created, :location => post_url(post)
1873
1874 * Ensure that render_text only adds string content to the body of the response *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1875
1876 * Return the string representation from an Xml Builder when rendering a partial. Closes #5044 *Tim Pope*
1877
1878 * Fixed that parameters from XML should also be presented in a hash with indifferent access *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1879
1880 * Tweak template format rules so that the ACCEPT header is only used if it's text/javascript. This is so ajax actions without a :format param get recognized as Mime::JS. *Rick Olson*
1881
1882 * The default respond_to blocks don't set a specific extension anymore, so that both 'show.rjs' and 'show.js.rjs' will work. *Rick Olson*
1883
1884 * Allow layouts with extension of .html.erb. Closes #8032 *Josh Knowles*
1885
1886 * Change default respond_to templates for xml and rjs formats. *Rick Olson*
1887
1888 * Default xml template goes from #{action_name}.rxml => #{action_name}.xml.builder.
1889 * Default rjs template goes from #{action_name}.rjs => #{action_name}.js.rjs.
1890
1891 You can still specify your old templates:
1892
1893 respond_to do |format|
1894 format.xml do
1895 render :action => "#{action_name}.rxml"
1896 end
1897 end
1898
1899 * Fix WSOD due to modification of a formatted template extension so that requests to templates like 'foo.html.erb' fail on the second hit. *Rick Olson*
1900
1901 * Fix WSOD when template compilation fails *Rick Olson*
1902
1903 * Change ActionView template defaults. Look for templates using the request format first, such as "show.html.erb" or "show.xml.builder", before looking for the old defaults like "show.erb" or "show.builder" *Rick Olson*
1904
1905 * Highlight helper highlights one or many terms in a single pass. *Jeremy Kemper*
1906
1907 * Dropped the use of ; as a separator of non-crud actions on resources and went back to the vanilla slash. It was a neat idea, but lots of the non-crud actions turned out not to be RPC (as the ; was primarily intended to discourage), but legitimate sub-resources, like /parties/recent, which didn't deserve the uglification of /parties;recent. Further more, the semicolon caused issues with caching and HTTP authentication in Safari. Just Not Worth It *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1908
1909 * Added that FormTagHelper#submit_tag will return to its original state if the submit fails and you're using :disable_with *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1910
1911 * Cleaned up, corrected, and mildly expanded ActionPack documentation. Closes #7190 *Jeremy McAnally*
1912
1913 * Small collection of ActionController documentation cleanups. Closes #7319 *Jeremy McAnally*
1914
1915 * Make sure the route expiry hash is constructed by comparing the to_param-ized values of each hash. *Jamis Buck*
1916
1917 * Allow configuration of the default action cache path for #caches_action calls. *Rick Olson*
1918
1919 class ListsController < ApplicationController
1920 caches_action :index, :cache_path => Proc.new { |controller|
1921 controller.params[:user_id] ?
1922 controller.send(:user_lists_url, c.params[:user_id]) :
1923 controller.send(:lists_url) }
1924 end
1925
1926 * Performance: patch cgi/session/pstore to require digest/md5 once rather than per #initialize. #7583 *Stefan Kaes*
1927
1928 * Cookie session store: ensure that new sessions doesn't reuse data from a deleted session in the same request. *Jeremy Kemper*
1929
1930 * Deprecation: verification with :redirect_to => :named_route shouldn't be deprecated. #7525 *Justin French*
1931
1932 * Cookie session store: raise ArgumentError when :session_key is blank. *Jeremy Kemper*
1933
1934 * Deprecation: remove deprecated request, redirect, and dependency methods. Remove deprecated instance variables. Remove deprecated url_for(:symbol, *args) and redirect_to(:symbol, *args) in favor of named routes. Remove uses_component_template_root for toplevel components directory. Privatize deprecated render_partial and render_partial_collection view methods. Remove deprecated link_to_image, link_image_to, update_element_function, start_form_tag, and end_form_tag helper methods. Remove deprecated human_size helper alias. *Jeremy Kemper*
1935
1936 * Consistent public/protected/private visibility for chained methods. #7813 *Dan Manges*
1937
1938 * Prefer MIME constants to strings. #7707 *Dan Kubb*
1939
1940 * Allow array and hash query parameters. Array route parameters are converted/to/a/path as before. #6765, #7047, #7462 *bgipsy, Jeremy McAnally, Dan Kubb, brendan*
1941
1942 \# Add a #dbman attr_reader for CGI::Session and make CGI::Session::CookieStore#generate_digest public so it's easy to generate digests using the cookie store's secret. [Rick Olson]
1943 * Added Request#url that returns the complete URL used for the request *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1944
1945 * Extract dynamic scaffolding into a plugin. #7700 *Josh Peek*
1946
1947 * Added user/password options for url_for to add http authentication in a URL *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1948
1949 * Fixed that FormTagHelper#text_area_tag should disregard :size option if it's not a string *Brendon Davidson*
1950
1951 * Set the original button value in an attribute of the button when using the :disable_with key with submit_tag, so that the original can be restored later. *Jamis Buck*
1952
1953 * session_enabled? works with session :off. #6680 *Jonathan del Strother*
1954
1955 * Added :port and :host handling to UrlRewriter (which unified url_for usage, regardless of whether it's called in view or controller) #7616 *alancfrancis*
1956
1957 * Allow send_file/send_data to use a registered mime type as the :type parameter #7620 *jonathan*
1958
1959 * Allow routing requirements on map.resource(s) #7633 [quixoten]. Example:
1960
1961 map.resources :network_interfaces, :requirements => { :id => /^\d+\.\d+\.\d+\.\d+$/ }
1962
1963 * Cookie session store: empty and unchanged sessions don't write a cookie. *Jeremy Kemper*
1964
1965 * Added helper(:all) as a way to include all helpers from app/helpers/**/*.rb in ApplicationController *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1966
1967 * Integration tests: introduce methods for other HTTP methods. #6353 *caboose*
1968
1969 * Routing: better support for escaped values in route segments. #7544 [Chris
1970 Roos]
1971 * Introduce a cookie-based session store as the Rails default. Sessions typically contain at most a user_id and flash message; both fit within the 4K cookie size limit. A secure message digest is included with the cookie to ensure data integrity (a user cannot alter his user_id without knowing the secret key included in the digest). If you have more than 4K of session data or don't want your data to be visible to the user, pick another session store. Cookie-based sessions are dramatically faster than the alternatives. *Jeremy Kemper*
1972
1973 Example config/environment.rb:
1974 # Use an application-wide secret key and the default SHA1 message digest.
1975 config.action_controller.session = { :secret => "can't touch this" }
1976
1977 # Store a secret key per user and employ a stronger message digest.
1978 config.action_controller.session = {
1979 :digest => 'SHA512',
1980 :secret => Proc.new { User.current.secret_key }
1981 }
1982
1983 * Added .erb and .builder as preferred aliases to the now deprecated .rhtml and .rxml extensions [Chad Fowler]. This is done to separate the renderer from the mime type. .erb templates are often used to render emails, atom, csv, whatever. So labeling them .rhtml doesn't make too much sense. The same goes for .rxml, which can be used to build everything from HTML to Atom to whatever. .rhtml and .rxml will continue to work until Rails 3.0, though. So this is a slow phasing out. All generators and examples will start using the new aliases, though.
1984
1985 * Added caching option to AssetTagHelper#stylesheet_link_tag and AssetTagHelper#javascript_include_tag [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
1986
1987 stylesheet_link_tag :all, :cache => true # when ActionController::Base.perform_caching is false =>
1988 <link href="/stylesheets/style1.css" media="screen" rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" />
1989 <link href="/stylesheets/styleB.css" media="screen" rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" />
1990 <link href="/stylesheets/styleX2.css" media="screen" rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" />
1991
1992 stylesheet_link_tag :all, :cache => true # when ActionController::Base.perform_caching is true =>
1993 <link href="/stylesheets/all.css" media="screen" rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" />
1994
1995 ...when caching is on, all.css is the concatenation of style1.css, styleB.css, and styleX2.css.
1996 Same deal for JavaScripts.
1997
1998 * Work around the two connection per host browser limit: use asset%d.myapp.com to distribute asset requests among asset[0123].myapp.com. Use a DNS wildcard or CNAMEs to map these hosts to your asset server. See http://www.die.net/musings/page_load_time/ for background. *Jeremy Kemper*
1999
2000 * Added default mime type for CSS (Mime::CSS) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2001
2002 * Added that rendering will automatically insert the etag header on 200 OK responses. The etag is calculated using MD5 of the response body. If a request comes in that has a matching etag, the response will be changed to a 304 Not Modified and the response body will be set to an empty string. *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2003
2004 * Added X-Runtime to all responses with the request run time *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2005
2006 * Add Mime::Type convenience methods to check the current mime type. *Rick Olson*
2007
2008 request.format.html? # => true if Mime::HTML
2009 request.format.jpg? # => true if Mime::JPG
2010
2011 \# ActionController sample usage:
2012 \# the session will be disabled for non html/ajax requests
2013 session :off, :if => Proc.new { |req| !(req.format.html? || req.format.js?) }
2014
2015 * Performance: patch cgi/session to require digest/md5 once rather than per #create_new_id. *Stefan Kaes*
2016
2017 * Add a :url_based_filename => true option to ActionController::Streaming::send_file, which allows URL-based filenames. *Thomas Fuchs*
2018
2019 * Fix that FormTagHelper#submit_tag using :disable_with should trigger the onsubmit handler of its form if available *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2020
2021 * Fix #render_file so that TemplateError is called with the correct params and you don't get the WSOD. *Rick Olson*
2022
2023 * Fix issue with deprecation messing up #template_root= usage. Add #prepend_view_path and #append_view_path to allow modification of a copy of the
2024 superclass' view_paths. [Rick Olson]
2025 * Allow Controllers to have multiple view_paths instead of a single template_root. Closes #2754 *John Long*
2026
2027 * Add much-needed html-scanner tests. Fixed CDATA parsing bug. *Rick Olson*
2028
2029 * improve error message for Routing for named routes. Closes #7346 *Rob Sanheim*
2030
2031 * Added enhanced docs to routing assertions. Closes #7359 *Rob Sanheim*
2032
2033 * fix form_for example in ActionController::Resources documentation. Closes #7362 *gnarg*
2034
2035 * Make sure that the string returned by TextHelper#truncate is actually a string, not a char proxy -- that should only be used internally while working on a multibyte-safe way of truncating *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2036
2037 * Added FormBuilder#submit as a delegate for FormTagHelper#submit_tag *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2038
2039 * Allow Routes to generate all urls for a set of options by specifying :generate_all => true. Allows caching to properly set or expire all paths for a resource. References #1739. *Nicholas Seckar*
2040
2041 * Change the query parser to map empty GET params to "" rather than nil. Closes #5694. *Nicholas Seckar*
2042
2043 * date_select and datetime_select take a :default option. #7052 *Nik Wakelin*
2044 date_select "post", "written_on", :default => 3.days.from_now
2045 date_select "credit_card", "bill_due", :default => { :day => 20 }
2046
2047 * select :multiple => true suffixes the attribute name with [] unless already suffixed. #6977 *nik.kakelin, ben, julik*
2048
2049 * Improve routes documentation. #7095 *zackchandler*
2050
2051 * mail_to :encode => 'hex' also encodes the mailto: part of the href attribute as well as the linked email when no name is given. #2061 *Jarkko Laine, pfc.pille@gmx.net*
2052
2053 * Resource member routes require :id, eliminating the ambiguous overlap with collection routes. #7229 *dkubb*
2054
2055 * Remove deprecated assertions. *Jeremy Kemper*
2056
2057 * Change session restoration to allow namespaced models to be autoloaded. Closes #6348. *Nicholas Seckar*
2058
2059 * Fix doubly appearing parameters due to string and symbol mixups. Closes #2551. *Anthony Eden*
2060
2061 * Fix overly greedy rescues when loading helpers. Fixes #6268. *Nicholas Seckar*
2062
2063 * Fixed NumberHelper#number_with_delimiter to use "." always for splitting the original number, not the delimiter parameter #7389 *ceefour*
2064
2065 * Autolinking recognizes trailing and embedded . , : ; #7354 *Jarkko Laine*
2066
2067 * Make TextHelper::auto_link recognize URLs with colons in path correctly, fixes #7268. *imajes*
2068
2069 * Update to script.aculo.us 1.7.0. *Thomas Fuchs*
2070
2071 * Modernize cookie testing code, and increase coverage (Heckle++) #7101 *Kevin Clark*
2072
2073 * Improve Test Coverage for ActionController::Routing::Route#matches_controller_and_action? (Heckle++) #7115 *Kevin Clark*
2074

2113 * Make sure html_document is reset between integration test requests. *ctm*
2114
2115 * Set session to an empty hash if :new_session => false and no session cookie or param is present. CGI::Session was raising an unrescued ArgumentError. *Josh Susser*
2116
2117 * Routing uses URI escaping for path components and CGI escaping for query parameters. *darix, Jeremy Kemper*
2118
2119 * Fix assert_redirected_to bug where redirecting from a nested to to a top-level controller incorrectly added the current controller's nesting. Closes #6128. *Rick Olson*

2151
2152 * respond_to recognizes JSON. render :json => @person.to_json automatically sets the content type and takes a :callback option to specify a client-side function to call using the rendered JSON as an argument. #4185 *Scott Raymond, eventualbuddha*
2153 # application/json response with body 'Element.show({:name: "David"})'
2154 respond_to do |format|
2155 format.json { render :json => { :name => "David" }.to_json, :callback => 'Element.show' }
2156 end
2157
2158 * Makes :discard_year work without breaking multi-attribute parsing in AR. #1260, #3800 *sean@ardismg.com, jmartin@desertflood.com, stephen@touset.org, Bob Silva*
2159
2160 * Adds html id attribute to date helper elements. #1050, #1382 *mortonda@dgrmm.net, David North, Bob Silva*
2161
2162 * Add :index and @auto_index capability to model driven date/time selects. #847, #2655 *moriq, Doug Fales, Bob Silva*

2165
2166 * Added time_select to work with time values in models. Update scaffolding. #2489, #2833 *Justin Palmer, Andre Caum, Bob Silva*
2167
2168 * Added :include_seconds to select_datetime, datetime_select and time_select. #2998 *csn, Bob Silva*
2169
2170 * All date/datetime selects can now accept an array of month names with :use_month_names. Allows for localization. #363 *tomasj, Bob Silva*
2171
2172 * Adds :time_separator to select_time and :date_separator to select_datetime. Preserves BC. #3811 *Bob Silva*
2173
2174 * Added map.root as an alias for map.connect '' *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2175
2176 * Added Request#format to return the format used for the request as a mime type. If no format is specified, the first Request#accepts type is used. This means you can stop using respond_to for anything else than responses [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
2177
2178 GET /posts/5.xml | request.format => Mime::XML
2179 GET /posts/5.xhtml | request.format => Mime::HTML
2180 GET /posts/5 | request.format => request.accepts.first (usually Mime::HTML for browsers)
2181
2182 * Added the option for extension aliases to mime type registration [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example (already in the default routes):
2183
2184 Mime::Type.register "text/html", :html, %w( application/xhtml+xml ), %w( xhtml )
2185
2186 ...will respond on both .html and .xhtml.
2187
2188 * @response.redirect_url works with 201 Created responses: just return headers['Location'] rather than checking the response status. *Jeremy Kemper*
2189
2190 * Added CSV to Mime::SET so that respond_to csv will work *Cody Fauser*
2191
2192 * Fixed that HEAD should return the proper Content-Length header (that is, actually use @body.size, not just 0) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2193
2194 * Added GET-masquarading for HEAD, so request.method will return :get even for HEADs. This will help anyone relying on case request.method to automatically work with HEAD and map.resources will also allow HEADs to all GET actions. Rails automatically throws away the response content in a reply to HEAD, so you don't even need to worry about that. If you, for whatever reason, still need to distinguish between GET and HEAD in some edge case, you can use Request#head? and even Request.headers["REQUEST_METHOD"] for get the "real" answer. Closes #6694 *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2195
2196 * Update Routing to complain when :controller is not specified by a route. Closes #6669. *Nicholas Seckar*
2197
2198 * Ensure render_to_string cleans up after itself when an exception is raised. #6658 *Rob Sanheim*
2199
2200 * Extract template_changed_since? from compile_template? so plugins may override its behavior for non-file-based templates. #6651 *Jeff Barczewski*
2201
2202 * Update to Prototype and script.aculo.us [5579]. *Thomas Fuchs*
2203
2204 * simple_format helper doesn't choke on nil. #6644 *jerry426*
2205
2206 * Update to Prototype 1.5.0_rc2 [5550] which makes it work in Opera again *Thomas Fuchs*
2207
2208 * Reuse named route helper module between Routing reloads. Use remove_method to delete named route methods after each load. Since the module is never collected, this fixes a significant memory leak. *Nicholas Seckar*
2209
2210 * ActionView::Base.erb_variable accessor names the buffer variable used to render templates. Defaults to _erbout; use _buf for erubis. *Rick Olson*
2211
2212 * assert_select_rjs :remove. *Dylan Egan*
2213
2214 * Always clear model associations from session. #4795 *sd@notso.net, andylien@gmail.com*
2215
2216 * Update to Prototype 1.5.0_rc2. *Sam Stephenson*
2217
2218 * Remove JavaScriptLiteral in favor of ActiveSupport::JSON::Variable. *Sam Stephenson*
2219
2220 * Sync ActionController::StatusCodes::STATUS_CODES with http://www.iana.org/assignments/http-status-codes. #6586 *dkubb*
2221
2222 * Multipart form values may have a content type without being treated as uploaded files if they do not provide a filename. #6401 *Andreas Schwarz, Jeremy Kemper*
2223
2224 * assert_response supports symbolic status codes. #6569 *Kevin Clark*
2225 assert_response :ok
2226 assert_response :not_found
2227 assert_response :forbidden
2228
2229 * Cache parsed query parameters. #6559 *Stefan Kaes*
2230
2231 * Deprecate JavaScriptHelper#update_element_function, which is superseeded by RJS *Thomas Fuchs*
2232
2233 * pluralize helper interprets nil as zero. #6474 *Tim Pope*
2234
2235 * Fix invalid test fixture exposed by stricter Ruby 1.8.5 multipart parsing. #6524 *Bob Silva*
2236
2237 * Set ActionView::Base.default_form_builder once rather than passing the :builder option to every form or overriding the form helper methods. *Jeremy Kemper*
2238
2239 * Deprecate expire_matched_fragments. Use expire_fragment instead. #6535 *Bob Silva*
2240
2241 * Update to latest Prototype, which doesn't serialize disabled form elements, adds clone() to arrays, empty/non-string Element.update() and adds a fixes excessive error reporting in WebKit beta versions *Thomas Fuchs*
2242
2243 * Deprecate start_form_tag and end_form_tag. Use form_tag / '</form>' from now on. *Rick Olson*
2244
2245 * Added block-usage to PrototypeHelper#form_remote_tag, document block-usage of FormTagHelper#form_tag *Rick Olson*
2246
2247 * Add a 0 margin/padding div around the hidden _method input tag that form_tag outputs. *Rick Olson*
2248
2249 * Added block-usage to TagHelper#content_tag [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
2250
2251 <% content_tag :div, :class => "strong" %>
2252 Hello world!
2253 <% end %>
2254
2255 Will output:
2256 <div class="strong">Hello world!</div>
2257
2258 * Deprecated UrlHelper#link_to_image and UrlHelper#link_to :post => true #6409 *Bob Silva*
2259
2260 * Upgraded NumberHelper with number_to_phone support international formats to comply with ITU E.123 by supporting area codes with less than 3 digits, added precision argument to number_to_human_size (defaults to 1) #6421 *Bob Silva*
2261
2262 * Fixed that setting RAILS_ASSET_ID to "" should not add a trailing slash after assets #6454 *Bob Silva/chrismear*
2263
2264 * Force *_url named routes to show the host in ActionView *Rick Olson*
2265
2266 <%= url_for ... %> # no host
2267 <%= foo_path %> # no host
2268 <%= foo_url %> # host!
2269
2270 * Add support for converting blocks into function arguments to JavaScriptGenerator#call and JavaScriptProxy#call. *Sam Stephenson*
2271
2272 * Add JavaScriptGenerator#literal for wrapping a string in an object whose #to_json is the string itself. *Sam Stephenson*
2273
2274 * Add <%= escape_once html %> to escape html while leaving any currently escaped entities alone. Fix button_to double-escaping issue. *Rick Olson*
2275
2276 * Fix double-escaped entities, such as &amp;amp;, &amp;#123;, etc. *Rick Olson*
2277
2278 * Fix deprecation warnings when rendering the template error template. *Nicholas Seckar*
2279
2280 * Fix routing to correctly determine when generation fails. Closes #6300. [psross].
2281
2282 * Fix broken assert_generates when extra keys are being checked. *Jamis Buck*
2283
2284 * Replace KCODE checks with String#chars for truncate. Closes #6385 *Manfred Stienstra*
2285
2286 * Make page caching respect the format of the resource that is being requested even if the current route is the default route so that, e.g. posts.rss is not transformed by url_for to '/' and subsequently cached as '/index.html' when it should be cached as '/posts.rss'. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
2287
2288 * Use String#chars in TextHelper::excerpt. Closes #6386 *Manfred Stienstra*
2289
2290 * Install named routes into ActionView::Base instead of proxying them to the view via helper_method. Closes #5932. *Nicholas Seckar*
2291
2292 * Update to latest Prototype and script.aculo.us trunk versions *Thomas Fuchs*
2293
2294 * Fix relative URL root matching problems. *Mark Imbriaco*
2295
2296 * Fix filter skipping in controller subclasses. #5949, #6297, #6299 *Martin Emde*
2297
2298 * render_text may optionally append to the response body. render_javascript appends by default. This allows you to chain multiple render :update calls by setting @performed_render = false between them (awaiting a better public API). *Jeremy Kemper*
2299
2300 * Rename test assertion to prevent shadowing. Closes #6306. *psross*
2301
2302 * Fixed that NumberHelper#number_to_delimiter should respect precision of higher than two digits #6231 *Philip Hallstrom*
2303
2304 * Fixed that FormHelper#radio_button didn't respect an :id being passed in #6266 *evansj*
2305
2306 * Added an html_options hash parameter to javascript_tag() and update_page_tag() helpers #6311 [tzaharia]. Example:
2307
2308 update_page_tag :defer => 'true' { |page| ... }
2309
2310 Gives:
2311
2312 <script defer="true" type="text/javascript">...</script>
2313
2314 Which is needed for dealing with the IE6 DOM when it's not yet fully loaded.
2315
2316 * Fixed that rescue template path shouldn't be hardcoded, then it's easier to hook in your own #6295 *Mike Naberezny*
2317
2318 * Fixed escaping of backslashes in JavaScriptHelper#escape_javascript #6302 *sven@c3d2.de*
2319
2320 * Fixed that some 500 rescues would cause 500's themselves because the response had not yet been generated #6329 *cmselmer*
2321
2322 * respond_to :html doesn't assume .rhtml. #6281 *Hampton Catlin*
2323
2324 * Fixed some deprecation warnings in ActionPack *Rick Olson*
2325
2326 * assert_select_rjs decodes escaped unicode chars since the Javascript generators encode them. #6240 *japgolly*
2327
2328 * Deprecation: @cookies, @headers, @request, @response will be removed after 1.2. Use the corresponding method instead. *Jeremy Kemper*
2329
2330 * Make the :status parameter expand to the default message for that status code if it is an integer. Also support symbol statuses. [Jamis Buck]. Examples:
2331
2332 head :status => 404 # expands to "404 Not Found"
2333 head :status => :not_found # expands to "404 Not Found"
2334 head :status => :created # expands to "201 Created"
2335
2336 * Add head(options = {}) for responses that have no body. [Jamis Buck]. Examples:
2337
2338 head :status => 404 # return an empty response with a 404 status
2339 head :location => person_path(@person), :status => 201
2340
2341 * Fix bug that kept any before_filter except the first one from being able to halt the before_filter chain. *Rick Olson*
2342
2343 * strip_links is case-insensitive. #6285 *tagoh, Bob Silva*
2344
2345 * Clear the cache of possible controllers whenever Routes are reloaded. *Nicholas Seckar*
2346
2347 * Filters overhaul including meantime filter support using around filters + blocks. #5949 *Martin Emde, Roman Le Negrate, Stefan Kaes, Jeremy Kemper*
2348
2349 * Update RJS render tests. *sam*
2350
2351 * Update CGI process to allow sessions to contain namespaced models. Closes #4638. *dfelstead@site5.com*
2352
2353 * Fix routing to respect user provided requirements and defaults when assigning default routing options (such as :action => 'index'). Closes #5950. *Nicholas Seckar*
2354
2355 * Rescue Errno::ECONNRESET to handle an unexpectedly closed socket connection. Improves SCGI reliability. #3368, #6226 *sdsykes, fhanshaw@vesaria.com*
2356
2357 * Added that respond_to blocks will automatically set the content type to be the same as is requested [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
2358
2359 respond_to do |format|
2360 format.html { render :text => "I'm being sent as text/html" }
2361 format.rss { render :text => "I'm being sent as application/rss+xml" }
2362 format.atom { render :text => "I'm being sent as application/xml", :content_type => Mime::XML }
2363 end
2364
2365 * Added utf-8 as the default charset for all renders. You can change this default using ActionController::Base.default_charset=(encoding) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2366
2367 * Added proper getters and setters for content type and charset [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example of what we used to do:
2368
2369 response.headers["Content-Type"] = "application/atom+xml; charset=utf-8"
2370
2371 ...now:
2372
2373 response.content_type = Mime::ATOM
2374 response.charset = "utf-8"
2375
2376 * Updated prototype.js to 1.5.0_rc1 with latest fixes. *Rick Olson*

2381
2382 * Declare file extensions exempt from layouts. #6219 *brandon*
2383 Example: ActionController::Base.exempt_from_layout 'rpdf'
2384
2385 * Add chained replace/update support for assert_select_rjs *Rick Olson*
2386
2387 Given RJS like...
2388
2389 page['test1'].replace "<div id=\"1\">foo</div>"
2390 page['test2'].replace_html "<div id=\"2\">foo</div>"
2391
2392 Test it with...
2393
2394 assert_select_rjs :chained_replace
2395 assert_select_rjs :chained_replace, "test1"
2396
2397 assert_select_rjs :chained_replace_html
2398 assert_select_rjs :chained_replace_html, "test2"
2399
2400 * Load helpers in alphabetical order for consistency. Resolve cyclic javascript_helper dependency. #6132, #6178 *choonkeat@gmail.com*
2401
2402 * Skip params with empty names, such as the &=Save query string from <input type="submit"/>. #2569 *Manfred Stienstra, raphinou@yahoo.com*
2403
2404 * Fix assert_tag so that :content => "foo" does not match substrings, but only exact strings. Use :content => /foo/ to match substrings. #2799 *Eric Hodel*
2405
2406 * Add descriptive messages to the exceptions thrown by cgi_methods. #6091, #6103 *Nicholas Seckar, Bob Silva*
2407
2408 * Update JavaScriptGenerator#show/hide/toggle/remove to new Prototype syntax for multiple ids, #6068 *petermichaux@gmail.com*
2409
2410 * Update UrlWriter to support :only_path. *Nicholas Seckar, Dave Thomas*
2411
2412 * Fixed JavaScriptHelper#link_to_function and JavaScriptHelper#button_to_function to have the script argument be optional [David Heinemeier Hansson]. So what used to require a nil, like this:
2413
2414 link_to("Hider", nil, :class => "hider_link") { |p| p[:something].hide }
2415
2416 ...can be written like this:
2417
2418 link_to("Hider", :class => "hider_link") { |p| p[:something].hide }
2419
2420 * Update to script.aculo.us 1.6.3 *Thomas Fuchs*

2422 * Update to Prototype 1.5.0_rc1 *sam*
2423
2424 * Added access to nested attributes in RJS #4548 [richcollins@gmail.com]. Examples:
2425
2426 page['foo']['style'] # => $('foo').style;
2427 page['foo']['style']['color'] # => $('blank_slate').style.color;
2428 page['foo']['style']['color'] = 'red' # => $('blank_slate').style.color = 'red';
2429 page['foo']['style'].color = 'red' # => $('blank_slate').style.color = 'red';
2430
2431 * Fixed that AssetTagHelper#image_tag and others using compute_public_path should not modify the incoming source argument (closes #5102) *eule@space.ch*
2432
2433 * Deprecated the auto-appending of .png to AssetTagHelper#image_tag calls that doesn't have an extension *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2434
2435 * Fixed FormOptionsHelper#select to respect :selected value #5813

2438
2439 * Fixed TextHelper#pluralize to handle 1 as a string #5909 *rails@bencurtis.com*
2440
2441 * Improved resolution of DateHelper#distance_of_time_in_words for better precision #5994 *Bob Silva*
2442
2443 * Changed that uncaught exceptions raised any where in the application will cause RAILS_ROOT/public/500.html to be read and shown instead of just the static "Application error (Rails)" *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2444
2445 * Integration tests: thoroughly test ActionController::Integration::Session. #6022 *Kevin Clark*
2446 (tests skipped unless you `gem install mocha`)
2447
2448 * Added deprecation language for pagination which will become a plugin by Rails 2.0 *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2449
2450 * Added deprecation language for in_place_editor and auto_complete_field that both pieces will become plugins by Rails 2.0 *David Heinemeier Hansson*

2452 * Deprecated all of ActionController::Dependencies. All dependency loading is now handled from Active Support *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2453
2454 * Added assert_select* for CSS selector-based testing (deprecates assert_tag) #5936 *assaf.arkin@gmail.com*
2455
2456 * radio_button_tag generates unique id attributes. #3353 *Bob Silva, somekool@gmail.com*
2457
2458 * strip_tags passes through blank args such as nil or "". #2229, #6702 *duncan@whomwah.com, dharana*
2459
2460 * Cleanup assert_tag :children counting. #2181 *jamie@bravenet.com*
2461
2462 * button_to accepts :method so you can PUT and DELETE with it. #6005 *Dan Webb*
2463
2464 * Update sanitize text helper to strip plaintext tags, and <img src="javascript:bang">. *Rick Olson*
2465
2466 * Update routing documentation. Closes #6017 *Nathan Witmer*
2467
2468 * Add routing tests to assert that RoutingError is raised when conditions aren't met. Closes #6016 *Nathan Witmer*
2469
2470 * Deprecation: update docs. #5998 *Jakob Skjerning, Kevin Clark*
2471
2472 * Make auto_link parse a greater subset of valid url formats. *Jamis Buck*
2473
2474 * Integration tests: headers beginning with X aren't excluded from the HTTP_ prefix, so X-Requested-With becomes HTTP_X_REQUESTED_WITH as expected. *Mike Clark*
2475
2476 * Tighten rescue clauses. #5985 *james@grayproductions.net*
2477
2478 * Fix send_data documentation typo. #5982 *brad@madriska.com*
2479
2480 * Switch to using FormEncodedPairParser for parsing request parameters. *Nicholas Seckar, David Heinemeier Hansson*
2481
2482 * respond_to .html now always renders #{action_name}.rhtml so that registered custom template handlers do not override it in priority. Custom mime types require a block and throw proper error now. *Tobias Lütke*
2483
2484 * Deprecation: test deprecated instance vars in partials. *Jeremy Kemper*
2485

2496 * Add controller_paths variable to Routing. *Nicholas Seckar*
2497
2498 * Fix assert_redirected_to issue with named routes for module controllers. *Rick Olson*
2499
2500 * Tweak RoutingError message to show option diffs, not just missing named route significant keys. *Rick Olson*

2507
2508 * Replace Reloadable with Reloadable::Deprecated. *Nicholas Seckar*

2512 * Add support for the param_name parameter to the auto_complete_field helper. #5026 *david.a.williams@gmail.com*
2513
2514 * Deprecation! @params, @session, @flash will be removed after 1.2. Use the corresponding instance methods instead. You'll get printed warnings during tests and logged warnings in dev mode when you access either instance variable directly. *Jeremy Kemper*
2515
2516 * Make Routing noisy when an anchor regexp is assigned to a segment. #5674 *François Beausoleil*
2517
2518 * Added months and years to the resolution of DateHelper#distance_of_time_in_words, such that "60 days ago" becomes "2 months ago" #5611 *pjhyett@gmail.com*
2519
2520 * Short documentation to mention use of Mime::Type.register. #5710 *choonkeat@gmail.com*

2523
2524 * Update query parser to support adjacent hashes. *Nicholas Seckar*
2525
2526 * Make action caching aware of different formats for the same action so that, e.g. foo.xml is cached separately from foo.html. Implicitly set content type when reading in cached content with mime revealing extensions so the entire onous isn't on the webserver. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
2527
2528 * Restrict Request Method hacking with ?_method to POST requests. *Rick Olson*
2529
2530 * Fix bug when passing multiple options to SimplyRestful, like :new => { :preview => :get, :draft => :get }. *Rick Olson, Josh Susser, Lars Pind*
2531
2532 * Dup the options passed to map.resources so that multiple resources get the same options. *Rick Olson*

2554 <% form_for 'post[]', @post do |f| -%>
2555 <% end -%>
2556
2557 * Remove leak in development mode by replacing define_method with module_eval. *Nicholas Seckar*
2558
2559 * Provide support for decimal columns to form helpers. Closes #5672. *Dave Thomas*
2560
2561 * Update documentation for erb trim syntax. #5651 *matt@mattmargolis.net*
