2011-11-17 _html translation should escape interpolated arguments
56 * Fix XSS security vulnerability in the `translate` helper method. When using interpolation
57 in combination with HTML-safe translations, the interpolated input would not get HTML
58 escaped. *GH 3664*

2011-11-06 Implement a workaround for a bug in ruby-1.9.3p0.
81 * Implement a workaround for a bug in ruby-1.9.3p0 where an error would be raised
82 while attempting to convert a template from one encoding to another.
83
84 Please see http://redmine.ruby-lang.org/issues/5564 for details of the bug.
85
86 The workaround is to load all conversions into memory ahead of time, and will
87 only happen if the ruby version is *exactly* 1.9.3p0. The hope is obviously that
88 the underlying problem will be resolved in the next patchlevel release of
89 1.9.3.

2011-11-04 Convert CHANGELOGs to Markdown format.
93 * Ensure users upgrading from 3.0.x to 3.1.x will properly upgrade their flash object in session (issues #3298 and #2509)
94
95 ## Rails 3.1.1 (October 7, 2011) ##
96
97 * stylesheet_link_tag('/stylesheets/application') and similar helpers doesn't
98 throw Sprockets::FileOutsidePaths exception anymore *Santiago Pastorino*
99
100 * Ensure default_asset_host_protocol is respected, closes #2980. *José Valim*
101
102 Changing rake db:schema:dump to run :environment as well as :load_config,
103 as running :load_config alone will lead to the dumper being run without
104 including extensions such as those included in foreigner and
105 spatial_adapter.
106
107 This reverses a change made here:
108 https://github.com/rails/rails/commit/5df72a238e9fcb18daf6ab6e6dc9051c9106d7bb#L0L324
109
110 I'm assuming here that :load_config needs to be invoked
111 separately from :environment, as it is elsewhere in the
112 file for db operations, if not the alternative is to go
113 back to "task :dump => :environment do".
114
115 *Ben Woosley*
116
117 * Update to rack-cache 1.1.
118
119 Versions prior to 1.1 delete the If-Modified-Since and If-Not-Modified
120 headers when config.action_controller.perform_caching is true. This has two
121 problems:
122 * unexpected inconsistent behaviour between development &
123 production environments
124 * breaks applications that use of these headers
125
126 *Brendan Ribera*
127
128 * Ensure that enhancements to assets:precompile task are only run once *Sam Pohlenz*
129
130 * TestCase should respect the view_assigns API instead of pulling variables on
131 its own. *José Valim*
132
133 * javascript_path and stylesheet_path now refer to /assets if asset pipelining
134 is on. *Santiago Pastorino*
135
136 * button_to support form option. Now you're able to pass for example
137 'data-type' => 'json'. *ihower*
138
139 * image_path and image_tag should use /assets if asset pipelining is turned
140 on. Closes #3126 *Santiago Pastorino and christos*
141
142 * Avoid use of existing precompiled assets during rake assets:precompile run.
143 Closes #3119 *Guillermo Iguaran*
144
145 * Copy assets to nondigested filenames too *Santiago Pastorino*
146
147 * Give precedence to `config.digest = false` over the existence of
148 manifest.yml asset digests *christos*
149
150 * escape options for the stylesheet_link_tag method *Alexey Vakhov*
151
152 * Re-launch assets:precompile task using (Rake.)ruby instead of Kernel.exec so
153 it works on Windows *cablegram*
154
155 * env var passed to process shouldn't be modified in process method. [Santiago
156 Pastorino]
157
158 * `rake assets:precompile` loads the application but does not initialize
159 it.
160
161 To the app developer, this means configuration add in
162 config/initializers/* will not be executed.
163
164 Plugins developers need to special case their initializers that are
165 meant to be run in the assets group by adding :group => :assets. *José Valim*
166
167 * Sprockets uses config.assets.prefix for asset_path *asee*
168
169 * FileStore key_file_path properly limit filenames to 255 characters. *phuibonhoa*
170
171 * Fix Hash#to_query edge case with html_safe strings. *brainopia*
172
173 * Allow asset tag helper methods to accept :digest => false option in order to completely avoid the digest generation.
174 Useful for linking assets from static html files or from emails when the user
175 could probably look at an older html email with an older asset. *Santiago Pastorino*
176
177 * Don't mount Sprockets server at config.assets.prefix if config.assets.compile is false. *Mark J. Titorenko*
178
179 * Set relative url root in assets when controller isn't available for Sprockets (eg. Sass files using asset_path). Fixes #2435 *Guillermo Iguaran*
180
181 * Fix basic auth credential generation to not make newlines. GH #2882
182
183 * Fixed the behavior of asset pipeline when config.assets.digest and config.assets.compile are false and requested asset isn't precompiled.
184 Before the requested asset were compiled anyway ignoring that the config.assets.compile flag is false. *Guillermo Iguaran*
185
186 * CookieJar is now Enumerable. Fixes #2795
187
188 * Fixed AssetNotPrecompiled error raised when rake assets:precompile is compiling certain .erb files. See GH #2763 #2765 #2805 *Guillermo Iguaran*
189
190 * Manifest is correctly placed in assets path when default assets prefix is changed. Fixes #2776 *Guillermo Iguaran*
191
192 * Fixed stylesheet_link_tag and javascript_include_tag to respect additional options passed by the users when debug is on. *Guillermo Iguaran*
193
194 * Fix ActiveRecord#exists? when passsed a nil value
195
196 * Fix assert_select_email to work on multipart and non-multipart emails as the method stopped working correctly in Rails 3.x due to changes in the new mail gem.
197
198
199 ## Rails 3.1.0 (August 30, 2011) ##
200
201 * Param values are `paramified` in controller tests. *David Chelimsky*
202
203 * 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*
204
205 * The submit form helper does not generate an id "object_name_id" anymore. *fbrusatti*
206
207 * Make sure respond_with with :js tries to render a template in all cases *José Valim*
208
209 * json_escape will now return a SafeBuffer string if it receives SafeBuffer string *tenderlove*
210
211 * Make sure escape_js returns SafeBuffer string if it receives SafeBuffer string *Prem Sichanugrist*
212
213 * Fix escape_js to work correctly with the new SafeBuffer restriction *Paul Gallagher*
214
215 * Brought back alternative convention for namespaced models in i18n *thoefer*
216
217 Now the key can be either "namespace.model" or "namespace/model" until further deprecation.
218
219 * It is prohibited to perform a in-place SafeBuffer mutation *tenderlove*
220
221 The old behavior of SafeBuffer allowed you to mutate string in place via
222 method like `sub!`. These methods can add unsafe strings to a safe buffer,
223 and the safe buffer will continue to be marked as safe.
224
225 An example problem would be something like this:
226
227 <%= link_to('hello world', @user).sub!(/hello/, params[:xss]) %>
228
229 In the above example, an untrusted string (`params[:xss]`) is added to the
230 safe buffer returned by `link_to`, and the untrusted content is successfully
231 sent to the client without being escaped. To prevent this from happening
232 `sub!` and other similar methods will now raise an exception when they are called on a safe buffer.
233
234 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:
235
236 <%= link_to('hello world', @user).sub(/hello/, params[:xss]) %>
237
238 The new versions will now ensure that *all* strings returned by these methods on safe buffers are marked unsafe.
239
240 You can read more about this change in http://groups.google.com/group/rubyonrails-security/browse_thread/thread/2e516e7acc96c4fb
241
242 * Warn if we cannot verify CSRF token authenticity *José Valim*
243
244 * Allow AM/PM format in datetime selectors *Aditya Sanghi*
245
246 * Only show dump of regular env methods on exception screen (not all the rack crap) *DHH*
247
248 * auto_link has been removed with no replacement. If you still use auto_link
249 please install the rails_autolink gem:
250 http://github.com/tenderlove/rails_autolink
251
252 *tenderlove*
253
254 * Added streaming support, you can enable it with: *José Valim*
255
256 class PostsController < ActionController::Base
257 stream :only => :index
258 end
259
260 Please read the docs at `ActionController::Streaming` for more information.
261
262 * Added `ActionDispatch::Request.ignore_accept_header` to ignore accept headers and only consider the format given as parameter *José Valim*
263
264 * Created `ActionView::Renderer` and specified an API for `ActionView::Context`, check those objects for more information *José Valim*
265
266 * 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*
267
268 This can be customized by setting `ActionController::Base.wrap_parameters` in `config/initializer/wrap_parameters.rb`
269
270 * RJS has been extracted out to a gem. *fxn*
271
272 * Implicit actions named not_implemented can be rendered. *Santiago Pastorino*
273
274 * Wildcard route will always match the optional format segment by default. *Prem Sichanugrist*
275
276 For example if you have this route:
277
278 map '*pages' => 'pages#show'
279
280 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:
281
282 map '*pages' => 'pages#show', :format => false
283
284 * Added Base.http_basic_authenticate_with to do simple http basic authentication with a single class method call *DHH*
285
286 class PostsController < ApplicationController
287 USER_NAME, PASSWORD = "dhh", "secret"
288
289 before_filter :authenticate, :except => [ :index ]
290
291 def index
292 render :text => "Everyone can see me!"
293 end
294
295 def edit
296 render :text => "I'm only accessible if you know the password"
297 end
298
299 private
300 def authenticate
301 authenticate_or_request_with_http_basic do |user_name, password|
302 user_name == USER_NAME && password == PASSWORD
303 end
304 end
305 end
306
307 ..can now be written as
308
309 class PostsController < ApplicationController
310 http_basic_authenticate_with :name => "dhh", :password => "secret", :except => :index
311
312 def index
313 render :text => "Everyone can see me!"
314 end
315
316 def edit
317 render :text => "I'm only accessible if you know the password"
318 end
319 end
320
321 * 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*
322
323 * Allow FormHelper#form_for to specify the :method as a direct option instead of through the :html hash *DHH*
324
325 form_for(@post, remote: true, method: :delete) instead of form_for(@post, remote: true, html: { method: :delete })
326
327 * 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*
328
329 * 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*
330
331 * URL parameters which return false for to_param now appear in the query string (previously they were removed) *Andrew White*
332
333 * URL parameters which return nil for to_param are now removed from the query string *Andrew White*
334
335 * ActionDispatch::MiddlewareStack now uses composition over inheritance. It is
336 no longer an array which means there may be methods missing that were not
337 tested.
338
339 * Add an :authenticity_token option to form_tag for custom handling or to omit the token (pass :authenticity_token => false). *Jakub Kuźma, Igor Wiedler*
340
341 * HTML5 button_tag helper. *Rizwan Reza*
342
343 * Template lookup now searches further up in the inheritance chain. *Artemave*
344
345 * Brought back config.action_view.cache_template_loading, which allows to decide whether templates should be cached or not. *Piotr Sarnacki*
346
347 * url_for and named url helpers now accept :subdomain and :domain as options, *Josh Kalderimis*
348
349 * 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*
350
351 * 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*
352
353 * Added a convenience idiom to generate HTML5 data-* attributes in tag helpers from a :data hash of options:
354
355 tag("div", :data => {:name => 'Stephen', :city_state => %w(Chicago IL)})
356 # => <div data-name="Stephen" data-city-state="[&quot;Chicago&quot;,&quot;IL&quot;]" />
357
358 Keys are dasherized. Values are JSON-encoded, except for strings and symbols. *Stephen Celis*
359
360 * Deprecate old template handler API. The new API simply requires a template handler to respond to call. *José Valim*
361
362 * :rhtml and :rxml were finally removed as template handlers. *José Valim*
363
364 * Moved etag responsibility from ActionDispatch::Response to the middleware stack. *José Valim*
365
366 * 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*
367
368 * file_field automatically adds :multipart => true to the enclosing form. *Santiago Pastorino*
369
370 * Renames csrf_meta_tag -> csrf_meta_tags, and aliases csrf_meta_tag for backwards compatibility. *fxn*
371
372 * 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*
373
374
375 ## Rails 3.0.7 (April 18, 2011) ##
376
377 * No changes.
378
379
380 * Rails 3.0.6 (April 5, 2011)
381
382 * Fixed XSS vulnerability in `auto_link`. `auto_link` no longer marks input as
383 html safe. Please make sure that calls to auto_link() are wrapped in a
384 sanitize(), or a raw() depending on the type of input passed to auto_link().
385 For example:
386
387 <%= sanitize(auto_link(some_user_input)) %>
388
389 Thanks to Torben Schulz for reporting this. The fix can be found here:
390 61ee3449674c591747db95f9b3472c5c3bd9e84d
391
392 * 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*
393
394 * Fixes an issue with number_to_human when converting values which are less than 1 but greater than -1 *Josh Kalderimis*
395
396 * 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*
397
398 * URL parameters which return nil for to_param are now removed from the query string *Andrew White*
399
400 * Don't allow i18n to change the minor version, version now set to ~> 0.5.0 *Santiago Pastorino*
401
402 * Make TranslationHelper#translate use the :rescue_format option in I18n 0.5.0 *Sven Fuchs*
403
404 * Fix regression: javascript_include_tag shouldn't raise if you register an expansion key with nil or [] value *Santiago Pastorino*
405
406 * 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*
407
408
409 ## Rails 3.0.5 (February 26, 2011) ##
410
411 * No changes.
412
413
414 ## Rails 3.0.4 (February 8, 2011) ##
415
416 * No changes.
417
418
419 ## Rails 3.0.3 (November 16, 2010) ##
420
421 * When ActiveRecord::Base objects are sent to predicate methods, the id of the object should be sent to ARel, not the ActiveRecord::Base object.
422
423 * :constraints routing should only do sanity checks against regular expressions. String arguments are OK.
424
425
426 ## Rails 3.0.2 (November 15, 2010) ##
427
428 * The helper number_to_currency accepts a new :negative_format option to be able to configure how to render negative amounts. *Don Wilson*
429
430
431 ## Rails 3.0.1 (October 15, 2010) ##
432
433 * No Changes, just a version bump.
434
435
436 ## Rails 3.0.0 (August 29, 2010) ##
437
438 * 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*
439
440 * 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*
441
442 * 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*
443
444 * Support routing constraints in functional tests. *Andrew White*
445
446 * Add a header that tells Internet Explorer (all versions) to use the best available standards support. *Yehuda Katz*
447
448 * Allow stylesheet/javascript extensions to be changed through railties. *Josh Kalderimis*
449
450 * link_to, button_to, and tag/tag_options now rely on html_escape instead of escape_once. *fxn*
451
452 * url_for returns always unescaped strings, and the :escape option is gone. *fxn*
453
454 * Added accept-charset parameter and _snowman hidden field to force the contents
455 of Rails POSTed forms to be in UTF-8 *Yehuda Katz*
456
457 * Upgrade to Rack 1.2.1 *Jeremy Kemper*
458
459 * Allow :path to be given to match/get/post/put/delete instead of :path_names in the new router *Carlos Antônio da Silva*
460
461 * Added resources_path_names to the new router DSL *José Valim*
462
463 * Allow options to be given to the namespace method in the new router *Carlos Antônio da Silva*
464
465 * Deprecate :name_prefix in the new router DSL *José Valim*
466
467 * Add shallow routes back to the new router *Diego Carrion, Andrew White*
468
469 resources :posts do
470 shallow do
471 resources :comments
472 end
473 end
474
475 You can now use comment_path for /comments/1 instead of post_comment_path for /posts/1/comments/1.
476
477 * 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*
478
479 * Removed textilize, textilize_without_paragraph and markdown helpers. *Santiago Pastorino*
480
481 * Remove middleware laziness *José Valim*
482
483 * Make session stores rely on request.cookie_jar and change set_session semantics to return the cookie value instead of a boolean. *José Valim*
484
485 * OAuth 2: HTTP Token Authorization support to complement Basic and Digest Authorization. *Rick Olson*
486
487 * Fixed inconsistencies in form builder and view helpers #4432 *Neeraj Singh*
488
489 * 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*
490
491 * Renamed the field error CSS class from fieldWithErrors to field_with_errors for consistency. *Jeremy Kemper*
492
493 * Add support for shorthand routes like /projects/status(.:format) #4423 *Diego Carrion*
494
495 * 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*
496
497 * 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*
498
499 * Removed verify method in controllers. *JV*
500 It's now available as a plugin at http://github.com/rails/verification
501
502 * Removed input, form, error_messages_for and error_message_on from views. *JV*
503 It's now available as a plugin at http://github.com/rails/dynamic_form
504
505 * Routes can be scoped by controller module. *Jeremy Kemper*
506
507 # /session => Auth::SessionsController
508 scope :module => 'auth' do
509 resource :session
510 end
511
512 * Added #favicon_link_tag, it uses #image_path so in particular the favicon gets an asset ID *fxn*
513
514 * Fixed that default locale templates should be used if the current locale template is missing *DHH*
515
516 * Added all the new HTML5 form types as individual form tag methods (search, url, number, etc) #3646 *Stephen Celis*
517
518 * Changed the object used in routing constraints to be an instance of
519 ActionDispatch::Request rather than Rack::Request *YK*
520
521 * Changed ActionDispatch::Request#method to return a String, to be compatible
522 with Rack::Request. Added ActionDispatch::Request#method_symbol to
523 return a symbol form of the request method. *YK*
524
525 * Changed ActionDispatch::Request#method to return the original
526 method and #request_method to return the overridden method in the
527 case of methodoverride being used (this means that #method returns
528 "HEAD" and #request_method returns "GET" in HEAD requests). This
529 is for compatibility with Rack::Request *YK*
530
531 * #concat is now deprecated in favor of using <%= %> helpers *YK*
532
533 * Block helpers now return Strings, so you can use <%= form_for @foo do |f| %>.
534 <% form_for do |f| %> still works with deprecation notices *YK*
535
536 * Add a new #mount method on the router that does not anchor the PATH_INFO
537 at the end *YK & CL*
538
539 * Create a new LookupContext object that is responsible for performantly
540 finding a template for a given pattern *JV*
541
542 * Removed relative_url_for in favor of respecting SCRIPT_NAME *YK & CL*
543
544 * Changed file streaming to use Rack::Sendfile middleware *YK*
545
546 * ActionDispatch::Request#content_type returns a String to be compatible with
547 Rack::Request. Use #content_mime_type for the Mime::Type instance *YK*
548
549 * Updated Prototype to 1.6.1 and Scriptaculous to 1.8.3 *ML*
550
551 * Change the preferred way that URL helpers are included into a class*YK & CL*
552
553 # for all helpers including named routes
554 include Rails.application.router.url_helpers
555
556 # for just url_for
557 include Rails.application.router.url_for
558
559 * Fixed that PrototypeHelper#update_page should return html_safe *DHH*
560
561 * Fixed that much of DateHelper wouldn't return html_safe? strings *DHH*
562
563 * Fixed that fragment caching should return a cache hit as html_safe (or it would all just get escaped) *DHH*
564
565 * Added that ActionController::Base now does helper :all instead of relying on the default ApplicationController in Rails to do it *DHH*
566
567 * Added ActionDispatch::Request#authorization to access the http authentication header regardless of its proxy hiding *DHH*
568
569 * Added :alert, :notice, and :flash as options to ActionController::Base#redirect_to that'll automatically set the proper flash before the redirection [DHH]. Examples:
570
571 flash[:notice] = 'Post was created'
572 redirect_to(@post)
573
574 ...becomes:
575
576 redirect_to(@post, :notice => 'Post was created')
577
578 * 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*
579
580
581 * Introduce grouped_collection_select helper. #1249 *Dan Codeape, Erik Ostrom*
582
583 * Make sure javascript_include_tag/stylesheet_link_tag does not append ".js" or ".css" onto external urls. #1664 *Matthew Rudy Jacobs*
584
585 * Ruby 1.9: fix Content-Length for multibyte send_data streaming. #2661 *Sava Chankov*
586
587 * Ruby 1.9: ERB template encoding using a magic comment at the top of the file. *Jeremy Kemper*
588 <%# encoding: utf-8 %>
589
590 * Change integration test helpers to accept Rack environment instead of just HTTP Headers *Pratik Naik*
591
592 Before : get '/path', {}, 'Accept' => 'text/javascript'
593 After : get '/path', {}, 'HTTP_ACCEPT' => 'text/javascript'
594
595 * Instead of checking Rails.env.test? in Failsafe middleware, check env["rails.raise_exceptions"] *Bryan Helmkamp*
596
597 * Fixed that TestResponse.cookies was returning cookies unescaped #1867 *Doug McInnes*
598
599
600 ## 2.3.2 Final (March 15, 2009) ##
601
602 * Fixed that redirection would just log the options, not the final url (which lead to "Redirected to #<Post:0x23150b8>") *DHH*
603
604 * Don't check authenticity tokens for any AJAX requests *Ross Kaffenberger/Bryan Helmkamp*
605
606 * Added ability to pass in :public => true to fresh_when, stale?, and expires_in to make the request proxy cachable #2095 *Gregg Pollack*
607
608 * Fixed that passing a custom form builder would be forwarded to nested fields_for calls #2023 *Eloy Duran/Nate Wiger*
609
610 * Form option helpers now support disabled option tags and the use of lambdas for selecting/disabling option tags from collections #837 *Tekin*
611
612 * 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*
613
614 * Fix a syntax error in current_page?() that was prevent matches against URL's with multiple query parameters #1385, #1868 *chris finne/Andrew White*
615
616 * Added localized rescue template when I18n.locale is set (ex: public/404.da.html) #1835 *José Valim*
617
618 * Make the form_for and fields_for helpers support the new Active Record nested update options. #1202 *Eloy Duran*
619
620 <% form_for @person do |person_form| %>
621 ...
622 <% person_form.fields_for :projects do |project_fields| %>
623 <% if project_fields.object.active? %>
624 Name: <%= project_fields.text_field :name %>
625 <% end %>
626 <% end %>
627 <% end %>
628
629
630 * Added grouped_options_for_select helper method for wrapping option tags in optgroups. #977 *Jon Crawford*
631
632 * Implement HTTP Digest authentication. #1230 [Gregg Kellogg, Pratik Naik] Example :
633
634 class DummyDigestController < ActionController::Base
635 USERS = { "lifo" => 'world' }
636
637 before_filter :authenticate
638
639 def index
640 render :text => "Hello Secret"
641 end
642
643 private
644
645 def authenticate
646 authenticate_or_request_with_http_digest("Super Secret") do |username|
647 # Return the user's password
648 USERS[username]
649 end
650 end
651 end
652
653 * Improved i18n support for the number_to_human_size helper. Changes the storage_units translation data; update your translations accordingly. #1634 *Yaroslav Markin*
654 storage_units:
655 # %u is the storage unit, %n is the number (default: 2 MB)
656 format: "%n %u"
657 units:
658 byte:
659 one: "Byte"
660 other: "Bytes"
661 kb: "KB"
662 mb: "MB"
663 gb: "GB"
664 tb: "TB"
665
666 * Added :silence option to BenchmarkHelper#benchmark and turned log_level into a hash parameter and deprecated the old use *DHH*
667
668 * 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*
669
670 * Make ActionController#render(string) work as a shortcut for render :file/:template/:action => string. [#1435] [Pratik Naik] Examples:
671
672 \# Instead of render(:action => 'other_action')
673 render('other_action') # argument has no '/'
674 render(:other_action)
675
676 \# Instead of render(:template => 'controller/action')
677 render('controller/action') # argument must not begin with a '/', but contain a '/'
678
679 \# Instead of render(:file => '/Users/lifo/home.html.erb')
680 render('/Users/lifo/home.html.erb') # argument must begin with a '/'
681
682 * Add :prompt option to date/time select helpers. #561 *Sam Oliver*
683
684 * Fixed that send_file shouldn't set an etag #1578 *Hongli Lai*
685
686 * Allow users to opt out of the spoofing checks in Request#remote_ip. Useful for sites whose traffic regularly triggers false positives. *Darren Boyd*
687
688 * Deprecated formatted_polymorphic_url. *Jeremy Kemper*
689
690 * 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*
691
692 * 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*
693
694 * Dropped formatted_* routes in favor of just passing in :format as an option. This cuts resource routes generation in half #1359 *aaronbatalion*
695
696 * 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*
697
698 * Allow helpers directory to be overridden via ActionController::Base.helpers_dir #1424 *Sam Pohlenz*
699
700 * Remove deprecated ActionController::Base#assign_default_content_type_and_charset
701
702 * Changed the default of ActionView#render to assume partials instead of files when not given an options hash [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
703
704 # Instead of <%= render :partial => "account" %>
705 <%= render "account" %>
706
707 # Instead of <%= render :partial => "account", :locals => { :account => @buyer } %>
708 <%= render "account", :account => @buyer %>
709
710 # @account is an Account instance, so it uses the RecordIdentifier to replace
711 # <%= render :partial => "accounts/account", :locals => { :account => @account } %>
712 <%= render(@account) %>
713
714 # @posts is an array of Post instances, so it uses the RecordIdentifier to replace
715 # <%= render :partial => "posts/post", :collection => @posts %>
716 <%= render(@posts) %>
717
718 * Remove deprecated render_component. Please use the plugin from http://github.com/rails/render_component/tree/master *Pratik Naik*
719
720 * 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*
721
722
723 ## 2.2.2 (November 21st, 2008) ##
724
725 * I18n: translate number_to_human_size. Add storage_units: [Bytes, KB, MB, GB, TB] to your translations. #1448 *Yaroslav Markin*
726
727 * Restore backwards compatible functionality for setting relative_url_root. Include deprecation
728
729 * Switched the CSRF module to use the request content type to decide if the request is forgeable. #1145 *Jeff Cohen*
730
731 * 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*
732
733 map.resources :products, :only => :show do |product|
734 product.resources :images, :except => :destroy
735 end
736
737 * Added render :js for people who want to render inline JavaScript replies without using RJS *David Heinemeier Hansson*
738
739 * Fixed that polymorphic_url should compact given array #1317 *hiroshi*
740
741 * Fixed the sanitize helper to avoid double escaping already properly escaped entities #683 *antonmos/Ryan McGeary*
742
743 * Fixed that FormTagHelper generated illegal html if name contained square brackets #1238 *Vladimir Dobriakov*
744
745 * 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*
746
747 * Simplified the logging format for parameters (don't include controller, action, and format as duplicates) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
748
749 * Remove the logging of the Session ID when the session store is CookieStore *David Heinemeier Hansson*
750
751 * Fixed regex in redirect_to to fully support URI schemes #1247 *Seth Fitzsimmons*
752
753 * Fixed bug with asset timestamping when using relative_url_root #1265 *Joe Goldwasser*
754
755
756 ## 2.2.0 RC1 (October 24th, 2008) ##
757
758 * Fix incorrect closing CDATA delimiter and that HTML::Node.parse would blow up on unclosed CDATA sections *packagethief*
759
760 * Added stale? and fresh_when methods to provide a layer of abstraction above request.fresh? and friends [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
761
762 class ArticlesController < ApplicationController
763 def show_with_respond_to_block
764 @article = Article.find(params[:id])
765
766
767 # If the request sends headers that differs from the options provided to stale?, then
768 # the request is indeed stale and the respond_to block is triggered (and the options
769 # to the stale? call is set on the response).
770 #
771 # If the request headers match, then the request is fresh and the respond_to block is
772 # not triggered. Instead the default render will occur, which will check the last-modified
773 # and etag headers and conclude that it only needs to send a "304 Not Modified" instead
774 # of rendering the template.
775 if stale?(:last_modified => @article.published_at.utc, :etag => @article)
776 respond_to do |wants|
777 # normal response processing
778 end
779 end
780 end
781
782 def show_with_implied_render
783 @article = Article.find(params[:id])
784
785 # Sets the response headers and checks them against the request, if the request is stale
786 # (i.e. no match of either etag or last-modified), then the default render of the template happens.
787 # If the request is fresh, then the default render will return a "304 Not Modified"
788 # instead of rendering the template.
789 fresh_when(:last_modified => @article.published_at.utc, :etag => @article)
790 end
791 end
792
793
794 * Added inline builder yield to atom_feed_helper tags where appropriate [Sam Ruby]. Example:
795
796 entry.summary :type => 'xhtml' do |xhtml|
797 xhtml.p pluralize(order.line_items.count, "line item")
798 xhtml.p "Shipped to #{order.address}"
799 xhtml.p "Paid by #{order.pay_type}"
800 end
801
802 * Make PrototypeHelper#submit_to_remote a wrapper around PrototypeHelper#button_to_remote. *Tarmo Tänav*
803
804 * Set HttpOnly for the cookie session store's cookie. #1046
805
806 * Added FormTagHelper#image_submit_tag confirm option #784 *Alastair Brunton*
807
808 * Fixed FormTagHelper#submit_tag with :disable_with option wouldn't submit the button's value when was clicked #633 *Jose Fernandez*
809
810 * Stopped logging template compiles as it only clogs up the log *David Heinemeier Hansson*
811
812 * Changed the X-Runtime header to report in milliseconds *David Heinemeier Hansson*
813
814 * Changed BenchmarkHelper#benchmark to report in milliseconds *David Heinemeier Hansson*
815
816 * Changed logging format to be millisecond based and skip misleading stats [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Went from:
817
818 Completed in 0.10000 (4 reqs/sec) | Rendering: 0.04000 (40%) | DB: 0.00400 (4%) | 200 OK [http://example.com]
819
820 ...to:
821
822 Completed in 100ms (View: 40, DB: 4) | 200 OK [http://example.com]
823
824 * Add support for shallow nesting of routes. #838 *S. Brent Faulkner*
825
826 Example :
827
828 map.resources :users, :shallow => true do |user|
829 user.resources :posts
830 end
831
832 - GET /users/1/posts (maps to PostsController#index action as usual)
833 named route "user_posts" is added as usual.
834
835 - GET /posts/2 (maps to PostsController#show action as if it were not nested)
836 Additionally, named route "post" is added too.
837
838 * Added button_to_remote helper. #3641 *Donald Piret, Tarmo Tänav*
839
840 * Deprecate render_component. Please use render_component plugin from http://github.com/rails/render_component/tree/master *Pratik Naik*
841
842 * Routes may be restricted to lists of HTTP methods instead of a single method or :any. #407 *Brennan Dunn, Gaius Centus Novus*
843 map.resource :posts, :collection => { :search => [:get, :post] }
844 map.session 'session', :requirements => { :method => [:get, :post, :delete] }
845
846 * Deprecated implicit local assignments when rendering partials *Josh Peek*
847
848 * Introduce current_cycle helper method to return the current value without bumping the cycle. #417 *Ken Collins*
849
850 * Allow polymorphic_url helper to take url options. #880 *Tarmo Tänav*
851
852 * Switched integration test runner to use Rack processor instead of CGI *Josh Peek*
853
854 * Made AbstractRequest.if_modified_sense return nil if the header could not be parsed *Jamis Buck*
855
856 * Added back ActionController::Base.allow_concurrency flag *Josh Peek*
857
858 * 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*
859
860 * Update Prototype to 1.6.0.2 #599 *Patrick Joyce*
861
862 * Conditional GET utility methods. *Jeremy Kemper*
863 response.last_modified = @post.updated_at
864 response.etag = [:admin, @post, current_user]
865
866 if request.fresh?(response)
867 head :not_modified
868 else
869 # render ...
870 end
871
872 * All 2xx requests are considered successful *Josh Peek*
873
874 * 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*
875
876 * Removed config.action_view.cache_template_loading, use config.cache_classes instead *Josh Peek*
877
878 * Get buffer for fragment cache from template's @output_buffer *Josh Peek*
879
880 * 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*
881
882 * Refactor template preloading. New abstractions include Renderable mixins and a refactored Template class *Josh Peek*
883
884 * Changed ActionView::TemplateHandler#render API method signature to render(template, local_assigns = {}) *Josh Peek*
885
886 * 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*
887
888 * Add :recursive option to javascript_include_tag and stylesheet_link_tag to be used along with :all. #480 *Damian Janowski*
889
890 * Allow users to disable the use of the Accept header *Michael Koziarski*
891
892 The accept header is poorly implemented by browsers and causes strange
893 errors when used on public sites where crawlers make requests too. You
894 can use formatted urls (e.g. /people/1.xml) to support API clients in a
895 much simpler way.
896
897 To disable the header you need to set:
898
899 config.action_controller.use_accept_header = false
900
901 * 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*
902
903 * Deprecated TemplateHandler line offset *Josh Peek*
904
905 * Allow caches_action to accept cache store options. #416. [José Valim]. Example:
906
907 caches_action :index, :redirected, :if => Proc.new { |c| !c.request.format.json? }, :expires_in => 1.hour
908
909 * Remove define_javascript_functions, javascript_include_tag and friends are far superior. *Michael Koziarski*
910
911 * Deprecate :use_full_path render option. The supplying the option no longer has an effect *Josh Peek*
912
913 * Add :as option to render a collection of partials with a custom local variable name. #509 *Simon Jefford, Pratik Naik*
914
915 render :partial => 'other_people', :collection => @people, :as => :person
916
917 This will let you access objects of @people as 'person' local variable inside 'other_people' partial template.
918
919 * time_zone_select: support for regexp matching of priority zones. Resolves #195 *Ernie Miller*
920
921 * Made ActionView::Base#render_file private *Josh Peek*
922
923 * 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*
924
925 This could cause some erroneous test failures if you were redirecting between controllers
926 in different namespaces and wrote your assertions relative to the root of the application.
927
928 * Remove follow_redirect from controller functional tests.
929
930 If you want to follow redirects you can use integration tests. The functional test
931 version was only useful if you were using redirect_to :id=>...

934
935 * Replaced TemplateFinder abstraction with ViewLoadPaths *Josh Peek*

940 <strong><%= @profile.name %></strong> -- <span>Check it out!!</span>
941 <% end %>
942

954
955 * Allow caches_action to accept a layout option *José Valim*
956
957 * Added Rack processor *Ezra Zygmuntowicz, Josh Peek*
958

1335
1336 * Allow ability to disable request forgery protection, disable it in test mode by default. Closes #9693 *Pratik Naik*
1337
1338 * Avoid calling is_missing on LoadErrors. Closes #7460. *ntalbott*
1339
1340 * Move Railties' Dispatcher to ActionController::Dispatcher, introduce before_ and after_dispatch callbacks, and warm up to non-CGI requests. *Jeremy Kemper*
1341
1342 * The tag helper may bypass escaping. *Jeremy Kemper*
1343
1344 * Cache asset ids. *Jeremy Kemper*
1345
1346 * Optimized named routes respect AbstractRequest.relative_url_root. #9612 *Daniel Morrison, Jeremy Kemper*
1347
1348 * Introduce ActionController::Base.rescue_from to declare exception-handling methods. Cleaner style than the case-heavy rescue_action_in_public. #9449 *Norbert Crombach*
1349
1350 * Rename some RequestForgeryProtection methods. The class method is now #protect_from_forgery, and the default parameter is now 'authenticity_token'. *Rick Olson*
1351
1352 * Merge csrf_killer plugin into rails. Adds RequestForgeryProtection model that verifies session-specific _tokens for non-GET requests. *Rick Olson*
1353
1354 * Secure #sanitize, #strip_tags, and #strip_links helpers against xss attacks. Closes #8877. *Rick Olson, Pratik Naik, Jacques Distler*
1355
1356 This merges and renames the popular white_list helper (along with some css sanitizing from Jacques Distler version of the same plugin).
1357 Also applied updated versions of #strip_tags and #strip_links from #8877.
1358
1359 * Remove use of & logic operator. Closes #8114. *watson*
1360
1361 * Fixed JavaScriptHelper#escape_javascript to also escape closing tags #8023 *Ruy Asan*
1362
1363 * Fixed TextHelper#word_wrap for multiline strings with extra carrier returns #8663 *seth*
1364
1365 * Fixed that setting the :host option in url_for would automatically turn off :only_path (since :host would otherwise not be shown) #9586 *Bounga*
1366
1367 * Added FormHelper#label. #8641, #9850 *jcoglan, Jarkko Laine*
1368
1369 * Added AtomFeedHelper (slightly improved from the atom_feed_helper plugin) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1370
1371 * 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*
1372
1373 * 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*
1374
1375 * Don't warn when a path segment precedes a required segment. Closes #9615. *Nicholas Seckar*
1376
1377 * Fixed CaptureHelper#content_for to work with the optional content parameter instead of just the block #9434 [sandofsky/wildchild].
1378
1379 * Added Mime::Type.register_alias for dealing with different formats using the same mime type [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1380
1381 class PostsController < ApplicationController
1382 before_filter :adjust_format_for_iphone
1383
1384 def index
1385 @posts = Post.find(:all)
1386
1387 respond_to do |format|
1388 format.html # => renders index.html.erb and uses "text/html" as the content type
1389 format.iphone # => renders index.iphone.erb and uses "text/html" as the content type
1390 end
1391 end
1392
1393
1394 private
1395 def adjust_format_for_iphone
1396 if request.env["HTTP_USER_AGENT"] && request.env["HTTP_USER_AGENT"][/iPhone/]
1397 request.format = :iphone
1398 end
1399 end
1400 end
1401
1402 * Added that render :json will automatically call .to_json unless it's being passed a string [David Heinemeier Hansson].
1403
1404 * Autolink behaves well with emails embedded in URLs. #7313 *Jeremy McAnally, Tarmo Tänav*
1405
1406 * Fixed that default layouts did not take the format into account #9564 *Pratik Naik*
1407
1408 * Fixed optimized route segment escaping. #9562 *wildchild, Jeremy Kemper*
1409
1410 * Added block acceptance to JavaScriptHelper#javascript_tag. #7527 *Bob Silva, Tarmo Tänav, rmm5t*
1411
1412 * root_path returns '/' not ''. #9563 *Pratik Naik*
1413
1414 * Fixed that setting request.format should also affect respond_to blocks *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1415
1416 * Add option to force binary mode on tempfile used for fixture_file_upload. #6380 *Jonathan Viney*
1417
1418 * Fixed that resource namespaces wouldn't stick to all nested resources #9399 *pixeltrix*
1419
1420 * Moved ActionController::Macros::AutoComplete into the auto_complete plugin on the official Rails svn. #9512 *Pratik Naik*
1421
1422 * Moved ActionController::Macros::InPlaceEditing into the in_place_editor plugin on the official Rails svn. #9513 *Pratik Naik*
1423
1424 * Removed deprecated form of calling xml_http_request/xhr without the first argument being the http verb *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1425
1426 * Removed deprecated methods [David Heinemeier Hansson]:
1427
1428 - ActionController::Base#keep_flash (use flash.keep instead)
1429 - ActionController::Base#expire_matched_fragments (just call expire_fragment with a regular expression)
1430 - ActionController::Base.template_root/= methods (use ActionController#Base.view_paths/= instead)
1431 - ActionController::Base.cookie (use ActionController#Base.cookies[]= instead)
1432
1433 * Removed the deprecated behavior of appending ".png" to image_tag/image_path calls without an existing extension *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1434
1435 * 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*
1436
1437 * Optimise named route generation when using positional arguments. *Michael Koziarski*
1438
1439 This change delivers significant performance benefits for the most
1440 common usage scenarios for modern rails applications by avoiding the
1441 costly trip through url_for. Initial benchmarks indicate this is
1442 between 6 and 20 times as fast.
1443
1444 * Explicitly require active_record/query_cache before using it. *Jeremy Kemper*
1445
1446 * Fix layout overriding response status. #9476 *lotswholetime*
1447
1448 * Add field_set_tag for generating field_sets, closes #9477. *Damian Janowski*
1449
1450 * Allow additional parameters to be passed to named route helpers when using positional arguments. Closes #8930 *Ian White*
1451
1452 * Make render :partial work with a :collection of Hashes, previously this wasn't possible due to backwards compatibility restrictions. *Pratik Naik*
1453
1454 * request.host works with IPv6 addresses. #9458 *yuya*
1455
1456 * Fix bug where action caching sets the content type to the ActionCachePath object. Closes #9282 *mindforge*
1457
1458 * Find layouts even if they're not in the first view_paths directory. Closes #9258 *caio*
1459
1460 * Major improvement to the documentation for the options / select form helpers. Closes #9038 *Chris Kampmeier, jardeon, wesg*
1461
1462 * Fix number_to_human_size when using different precisions. Closes #7536. *RichardStrand, mpalmer*
1463
1464 * Added partial layouts (see example in action_view/lib/partials.rb) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1465
1466 * Allow you to set custom :conditions on resource routes. *Rick Olson*
1467
1468 * Fixed that file.content_type for uploaded files would include a trailing \r #9053 *Brad Greenlee*
1469
1470 * url_for now accepts a series of symbols representing the namespace of the record *Josh Knowles*
1471
1472 * Make :trailing_slash work with query parameters for url_for. Closes #4004 *nov*
1473
1474 * Make sure missing template exceptions actually say which template they were looking for. Closes #8683 *dasil003*
1475
1476 * Fix errors with around_filters which do not yield, restore 1.1 behaviour with after filters. Closes #8891 *Stefan Kaes*
1477
1478 After filters will *no longer* be run if an around_filter fails to yield, users relying on
1479 this behaviour are advised to put the code in question after a yield statement in an around filter.
1480
1481
1482 * Allow you to delete cookies with options. Closes #3685 *Josh Peek, Chris Wanstrath*
1483
1484 * Allow you to render views with periods in the name. Closes #8076 *Norbert Crombach*
1485
1486 render :partial => 'show.html.erb'
1487
1488 * Improve capture helper documentation. #8796 *Chris Kampmeier*
1489
1490 * 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*
1491
1492 * Allow sweepers to be created solely for expiring after controller actions, not model changes *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1493
1494 * Added assigns method to ActionController::Caching::Sweeper to easily access instance variables on the controller *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1495
1496 * Give the legacy X-POST_DATA_FORMAT header greater precedence during params parsing for backward compatibility. *Jeremy Kemper*
1497
1498 * Fixed that link_to with an href of # when using :method will not allow for click-through without JavaScript #7037 *Steven Bristol, Josh Peek*
1499
1500 * Fixed that radio_button_tag should generate unique ids #3353 *Bob Silva, Rebecca, Josh Peek*
1501
1502 * Fixed that HTTP authentication should work if the header is called REDIRECT_X_HTTP_AUTHORIZATION as well #6754 *Mislav Marohnić*
1503
1504 * Don't mistakenly interpret the request uri as the query string. #8731 *Pratik Naik, Jeremy Kemper*
1505
1506 * 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*
1507
1508 * Tolerate missing content type on multipart file uploads. Fix for Safari 3. *Jeremy Kemper*
1509
1510 * Deprecation: remove pagination. Install the classic_pagination plugin for forward compatibility, or move to the superior will_paginate plugin. #8157 *Josh Peek*
1511
1512 * Action caching is limited to GET requests returning 200 OK status. #3335 *tom@craz8.com, halfbyte, Dan Kubb, Josh Peek*
1513
1514 * Improve Text Helper test coverage. #7274 *Rob Sanheim, Josh Peek*
1515
1516 * Improve helper test coverage. #7208, #7212, #7215, #7233, #7234, #7235, #7236, #7237, #7238, #7241, #7243, #7244 *Rich Collins, Josh Peek*
1517
1518 * Improve UrlRewriter tests. #7207 *Rich Collins*
1519
1520 * 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*
1521
1522 * Assume html format when rendering partials in RJS. #8076 *Rick Olson*
1523
1524 * Don't double-escape url_for in views. #8144 *Rich Collins, Josh Peek*
1525
1526 * Allow JSON-style values for the :with option of observe_field. Closes #8557 *kommen*
1527
1528 * Remove RAILS_ROOT from backtrace paths. #8540 *Tim Pope*
1529
1530 * Routing: map.resource :logo routes to LogosController so the controller may be reused for multiple nestings or namespaces. *Jeremy Kemper*
1531
1532 * render :partial recognizes Active Record associations as Arrays. #8538 *Kamal Fariz Mahyuddin*
1533
1534 * Routing: drop semicolon and comma as route separators. *Jeremy Kemper*
1535
1536 * request.remote_ip understands X-Forwarded-For addresses with nonstandard whitespace. #7386 *moses*
1537
1538 * Don't prepare response when rendering a component. #8493 *jsierles*
1539
1540 * Reduce file stat calls when checking for template changes. #7736 *alex*
1541
1542 * Added custom path cache_page/expire_page parameters in addition to the options hashes [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1543
1544 def index
1545 caches_page(response.body, "/index.html")
1546 end
1547
1548 * Action Caching speedup. #8231 *Stefan Kaes*
1549
1550 * Wordsmith resources documentation. #8484 *marclove*
1551
1552 * Fix syntax error in code example for routing documentation. #8377. *Norbert Crombach*
1553
1554 * 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*
1555
1556 * Add support for assert_select_rjs with :show and :hide. #7780 *dchelimsky*
1557
1558 * Make assert_select's failure messages clearer about what failed. #7779 *dchelimsky*
1559
1560 * Introduce a default respond_to block for custom types. #8174 *Josh Peek*
1561
1562 * auto_complete_field takes a :method option so you can GET or POST. #8120 *zapnap*
1563
1564 * Added option to suppress :size when using :maxlength for FormTagHelper#text_field #3112 *Tim Pope*
1565
1566 * catch possible WSOD when trying to render a missing partial. Closes #8454 *Jonathan del Strother*
1567
1568 * Rewind request body after reading it, if possible. #8438 *s450r1*
1569
1570 * Resource namespaces are inherited by their has_many subresources. #8280 *marclove, Geoff Garside*
1571
1572 * Fix filtered parameter logging with nil parameter values. #8422 *choonkeat*
1573
1574 * 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*
1575
1576 * Document caches_action. #5419 *Jarkko Laine*
1577
1578 * Update to Prototype 1.5.1. *Sam Stephenson*
1579
1580 * Allow routes to be decalred under namespaces [Tobias Lütke]:
1581
1582 map.namespace :admin do |admin|
1583 admin.root :controller => "products"
1584 admin.feed 'feed.xml', :controller => 'products', :action => 'feed', :format => 'xml'
1585 end
1586
1587 * Update to script.aculo.us 1.7.1_beta3. *Thomas Fuchs*
1588
1589 * observe_form always sends the serialized form. #5271 *Manfred Stienstra, normelton@gmail.com*
1590
1591 * Parse url-encoded and multipart requests ourselves instead of delegating to CGI. *Jeremy Kemper*
1592
1593 * select :include_blank option can be set to a string instead of true, which just uses an empty string. #7664 *Wizard*
1594
1595 * Added url_for usage on render :location, which allows for record identification [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1596
1597 render :xml => person, :status => :created, :location => person
1598
1599 ...expands the location to person_url(person).
1600
1601 * 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*
1602
1603 * Add some performance enhancements to ActionView.
1604
1605 * Cache base_paths in @@cached_base_paths
1606 * Cache template extensions in @@cached_template_extension
1607 * Remove unnecessary rescues
1608
1609 * Assume that rendered partials go by the HTML format by default
1610
1611 def my_partial
1612 render :update do |page|
1613 # in this order
1614 # _foo.html.erb
1615 # _foo.erb
1616 # _foo.rhtml
1617 page.replace :foo, :partial => 'foo'
1618 end
1619 end
1620
1621 * Added record identifications to FormHelper#form_for and PrototypeHelper#remote_form_for [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
1622
1623 <% form_for(@post) do |f| %>
1624 ...
1625 <% end %>
1626
1627 This will expand to be the same as:
1628
1629 <% form_for :post, @post, :url => post_path(@post), :html => { :method => :put, :class => "edit_post", :id => "edit_post_45" } do |f| %>
1630 ...
1631 <% end %>
1632
1633 And for new records:
1634
1635 <% form_for(Post.new) do |f| %>
1636 ...
1637 <% end %>
1638
1639 This will expand to be the same as:
1640
1641 <% form_for :post, @post, :url => posts_path, :html => { :class => "new_post", :id => "new_post" } do |f| %>
1642 ...
1643 <% end %>
1644
1645 * Rationalize route path escaping according to RFC 2396 section 3.3. #7544, #8307. *Jeremy Kemper, Chris Roos, begemot, jugend*
1646
1647 * Added record identification with polymorphic routes for ActionController::Base#url_for and ActionView::Base#url_for [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
1648
1649 redirect_to(post) # => redirect_to(posts_url(post)) => Location: http://example.com/posts/1
1650 link_to(post.title, post) # => link_to(post.title, posts_url(post)) => <a href="/posts/1">Hello world</a>
1651
1652 Any method that calls url_for on its parameters will automatically benefit from this.
1653
1654 * Removed deprecated parameters_for_method_reference concept (legacy from before named routes) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1655
1656 * Add ActionController::Routing::Helpers, a module to contain common URL helpers such as polymorphic_url. *Nicholas Seckar*
1657
1658 * Included the HttpAuthentication plugin as part of core (ActionController::HttpAuthentication::Basic) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1659
1660 * Modernize documentation for form helpers. *Jeremy McAnally*
1661
1662 * Add brief introduction to REST to the resources documentation. *fearoffish*
1663
1664 * Fix various documentation typos throughout ActionPack. *Henrik N*
1665
1666 * Enhance documentation and add examples for url_for. *Jeremy McAnally*
1667
1668 * Fix documentation typo in routes. *Norbert Crombach, pam*
1669
1670 * Sweep flash when filter chain is halted. *Caio Chassot <lists@v2studio.com>*
1671
1672 * 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*
1673
1674 * Replace the current block/continuation filter chain handling by an implementation based on a simple loop. #8226 *Stefan Kaes*
1675
1676 * Update UrlWriter to accept :anchor parameter. Closes #6771. *Chris McGrath*
1677
1678 * Added RecordTagHelper for using RecordIdentifier conventions on divs and other container elements [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1679
1680 <% div_for(post) do %> <div id="post_45" class="post">
1681 <%= post.body %> What a wonderful world!
1682 <% end %> </div>
1683
1684 * Added page[record] accessor to JavaScriptGenerator that relies on RecordIdentifier to find the right dom id [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1685
1686 format.js do
1687 # Calls: new Effect.fade('post_45');
1688 render(:update) { |page| page[post].visual_effect(:fade) }
1689 end
1690
1691 * Added RecordIdentifier to enforce view conventions on records for dom ids, classes, and partial paths *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1692
1693 * Added map.namespace to deal with the common situation of admin sections and the like *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1694
1695 Before:
1696
1697 map.resources :products, :path_prefix => "admin", :controller => "admin/products", :collection => { :inventory => :get }, :member => { :duplicate => :post }
1698 map.resources :tags, :name_prefix => 'admin_product_', :path_prefix => "admin/products/:product_id", :controller => "admin/product_tags"
1699 map.resources :images, :name_prefix => 'admin_product_', :path_prefix => "admin/products/:product_id", :controller => "admin/product_images"
1700 map.resources :variants, :name_prefix => 'admin_product_', :path_prefix => "admin/products/:product_id", :controller => "admin/product_variants"
1701
1702 After:
1703
1704 map.namespace(:admin) do |admin|
1705 admin.resources :products,
1706 :collection => { :inventory => :get },
1707 :member => { :duplicate => :post },
1708 :has_many => [ :tags, :images, :variants ]
1709 end
1710
1711 * Added :name_prefix as standard for nested resources [David Heinemeier Hansson]. WARNING: May be backwards incompatible with your app
1712
1713 Before:
1714
1715 map.resources :emails do |emails|
1716 emails.resources :comments, :name_prefix => "email_"
1717 emails.resources :attachments, :name_prefix => "email_"
1718 end
1719
1720 After:
1721
1722 map.resources :emails do |emails|
1723 emails.resources :comments
1724 emails.resources :attachments
1725 end
1726
1727 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.
1728
1729 * Added :has_many and :has_one for declaring plural and singular resources beneath the current *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1730
1731 Before:
1732
1733 map.resources :notes do |notes|
1734 notes.resources :comments
1735 notes.resources :attachments
1736 notes.resource :author
1737 end
1738
1739 After:
1740
1741 map.resources :notes, :has_many => [ :comments, :attachments ], :has_one => :author
1742
1743 * Added that render :xml will try to call to_xml if it can [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Makes these work:
1744
1745 render :xml => post
1746 render :xml => comments
1747
1748 * 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*
1749
1750 render :xml => post.to_xml, :status => :created, :location => post_url(post)
1751
1752 * Ensure that render_text only adds string content to the body of the response *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1753
1754 * Return the string representation from an Xml Builder when rendering a partial. Closes #5044 *Tim Pope*
1755
1756 * Fixed that parameters from XML should also be presented in a hash with indifferent access *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1757
1758 * 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*
1759
1760 * 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*
1761
1762 * Allow layouts with extension of .html.erb. Closes #8032 *Josh Knowles*
1763
1764 * Change default respond_to templates for xml and rjs formats. *Rick Olson*
1765
1766 * Default xml template goes from #{action_name}.rxml => #{action_name}.xml.builder.
1767 * Default rjs template goes from #{action_name}.rjs => #{action_name}.js.rjs.
1768
1769 You can still specify your old templates:
1770
1771 respond_to do |format|
1772 format.xml do
1773 render :action => "#{action_name}.rxml"
1774 end
1775 end
1776
1777 * 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*
1778
1779 * Fix WSOD when template compilation fails *Rick Olson*
1780
1781 * 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*
1782
1783 * Highlight helper highlights one or many terms in a single pass. *Jeremy Kemper*
1784
1785 * 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*
1786
1787 * Added that FormTagHelper#submit_tag will return to its original state if the submit fails and you're using :disable_with *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1788
1789 * Cleaned up, corrected, and mildly expanded ActionPack documentation. Closes #7190 *Jeremy McAnally*
1790
1791 * Small collection of ActionController documentation cleanups. Closes #7319 *Jeremy McAnally*
1792
1793 * Make sure the route expiry hash is constructed by comparing the to_param-ized values of each hash. *Jamis Buck*
1794
1795 * Allow configuration of the default action cache path for #caches_action calls. *Rick Olson*
1796
1797 class ListsController < ApplicationController
1798 caches_action :index, :cache_path => Proc.new { |controller|
1799 controller.params[:user_id] ?
1800 controller.send(:user_lists_url, c.params[:user_id]) :
1801 controller.send(:lists_url) }
1802 end
1803
1804 * Performance: patch cgi/session/pstore to require digest/md5 once rather than per #initialize. #7583 *Stefan Kaes*
1805
1806 * Cookie session store: ensure that new sessions doesn't reuse data from a deleted session in the same request. *Jeremy Kemper*
1807
1808 * Deprecation: verification with :redirect_to => :named_route shouldn't be deprecated. #7525 *Justin French*
1809
1810 * Cookie session store: raise ArgumentError when :session_key is blank. *Jeremy Kemper*
1811
1812 * 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*
1813
1814 * Consistent public/protected/private visibility for chained methods. #7813 *Dan Manges*
1815
1816 * Prefer MIME constants to strings. #7707 *Dan Kubb*
1817
1818 * 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*
1819
1820 \# Add a #dbman attr_reader for CGI::Session and make CGI::Session::CookieStore#generate_digest public so it's easy to generate digests
1821 using the cookie store's secret. *Rick Olson*
1822
1823 * Added Request#url that returns the complete URL used for the request *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1824
1825 * Extract dynamic scaffolding into a plugin. #7700 *Josh Peek*
1826
1827 * Added user/password options for url_for to add http authentication in a URL *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1828
1829 * Fixed that FormTagHelper#text_area_tag should disregard :size option if it's not a string *Brendon Davidson*
1830
1831 * 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*
1832
1833 * session_enabled? works with session :off. #6680 *Jonathan del Strother*
1834
1835 * Added :port and :host handling to UrlRewriter (which unified url_for usage, regardless of whether it's called in view or controller) #7616 *alancfrancis*
1836
1837 * Allow send_file/send_data to use a registered mime type as the :type parameter #7620 *jonathan*
1838
1839 * Allow routing requirements on map.resource(s) #7633 [quixoten]. Example:
1840
1841 map.resources :network_interfaces, :requirements => { :id => /^\d+\.\d+\.\d+\.\d+$/ }
1842
1843 * Cookie session store: empty and unchanged sessions don't write a cookie. *Jeremy Kemper*
1844
1845 * Added helper(:all) as a way to include all helpers from app/helpers/**/*.rb in ApplicationController *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1846
1847 * Integration tests: introduce methods for other HTTP methods. #6353 *caboose*
1848
1849 * Routing: better support for escaped values in route segments. #7544 [Chris
1850 Roos]
1851
1852 * 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*
1853
1854 Example config/environment.rb:
1855 # Use an application-wide secret key and the default SHA1 message digest.
1856 config.action_controller.session = { :secret => "can't touch this" }
1857
1858 # Store a secret key per user and employ a stronger message digest.
1859 config.action_controller.session = {
1860 :digest => 'SHA512',
1861 :secret => Proc.new { User.current.secret_key }
1862 }
1863
1864 * 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.
1865
1866 * Added caching option to AssetTagHelper#stylesheet_link_tag and AssetTagHelper#javascript_include_tag [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
1867
1868 stylesheet_link_tag :all, :cache => true # when ActionController::Base.perform_caching is false =>
1869 <link href="/stylesheets/style1.css" media="screen" rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" />
1870 <link href="/stylesheets/styleB.css" media="screen" rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" />
1871 <link href="/stylesheets/styleX2.css" media="screen" rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" />
1872
1873 stylesheet_link_tag :all, :cache => true # when ActionController::Base.perform_caching is true =>
1874 <link href="/stylesheets/all.css" media="screen" rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" />
1875
1876 ...when caching is on, all.css is the concatenation of style1.css, styleB.css, and styleX2.css.
1877 Same deal for JavaScripts.
1878
1879 * 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*
1880
1881 * Added default mime type for CSS (Mime::CSS) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1882
1883 * 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*
1884
1885 * Added X-Runtime to all responses with the request run time *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1886
1887 * Add Mime::Type convenience methods to check the current mime type. *Rick Olson*
1888
1889 request.format.html? # => true if Mime::HTML
1890 request.format.jpg? # => true if Mime::JPG
1891
1892 \# ActionController sample usage:
1893 \# the session will be disabled for non html/ajax requests
1894 session :off, :if => Proc.new { |req| !(req.format.html? || req.format.js?) }
1895
1896 * Performance: patch cgi/session to require digest/md5 once rather than per #create_new_id. *Stefan Kaes*
1897
1898 * Add a :url_based_filename => true option to ActionController::Streaming::send_file, which allows URL-based filenames. *Thomas Fuchs*
1899
1900 * Fix that FormTagHelper#submit_tag using :disable_with should trigger the onsubmit handler of its form if available *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1901
1902 * Fix #render_file so that TemplateError is called with the correct params and you don't get the WSOD. *Rick Olson*
1903
1904 * 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
1905 superclass' view_paths. *Rick Olson*
1906
1907 * Allow Controllers to have multiple view_paths instead of a single template_root. Closes #2754 *John Long*
1908
1909 * Add much-needed html-scanner tests. Fixed CDATA parsing bug. *Rick Olson*
1910
1911 * improve error message for Routing for named routes. Closes #7346 *Rob Sanheim*
1912
1913 * Added enhanced docs to routing assertions. Closes #7359 *Rob Sanheim*
1914
1915 * fix form_for example in ActionController::Resources documentation. Closes #7362 *gnarg*
1916
1917 * 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*
1918
1919 * Added FormBuilder#submit as a delegate for FormTagHelper#submit_tag *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1920
1921 * 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*
1922
1923 * Change the query parser to map empty GET params to "" rather than nil. Closes #5694. *Nicholas Seckar*
1924
1925 * date_select and datetime_select take a :default option. #7052 *Nik Wakelin*
1926 date_select "post", "written_on", :default => 3.days.from_now
1927 date_select "credit_card", "bill_due", :default => { :day => 20 }
1928
1929 * select :multiple => true suffixes the attribute name with [] unless already suffixed. #6977 *nik.kakelin, ben, julik*
1930
1931 * Improve routes documentation. #7095 *zackchandler*
1932
1933 * 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*
1934
1935 * Resource member routes require :id, eliminating the ambiguous overlap with collection routes. #7229 *dkubb*
1936
1937 * Remove deprecated assertions. *Jeremy Kemper*
1938
1939 * Change session restoration to allow namespaced models to be autoloaded. Closes #6348. *Nicholas Seckar*
1940
1941 * Fix doubly appearing parameters due to string and symbol mixups. Closes #2551. *Anthony Eden*
1942
1943 * Fix overly greedy rescues when loading helpers. Fixes #6268. *Nicholas Seckar*
1944
1945 * Fixed NumberHelper#number_with_delimiter to use "." always for splitting the original number, not the delimiter parameter #7389 *ceefour*
1946
1947 * Autolinking recognizes trailing and embedded . , : ; #7354 *Jarkko Laine*
1948
1949 * Make TextHelper::auto_link recognize URLs with colons in path correctly, fixes #7268. *imajes*
1950

1952
1953 * Modernize cookie testing code, and increase coverage (Heckle++) #7101 *Kevin Clark*
1954
1955 * Improve Test Coverage for ActionController::Routing::Route#matches_controller_and_action? (Heckle++) #7115 *Kevin Clark*
1956
1957 * Heckling ActionController::Resources::Resource revealed that set_prefixes didn't break when :name_prefix was munged. #7081 *Kevin Clark*
1958
1959 * Fix #distance_of_time_in_words to report accurately against the Duration class. #7114 *eventualbuddha*
1960
1961 * Refactor #form_tag to allow easy extending. *Rick Olson*
1962
1963 * Update to Prototype 1.5.0. *Sam Stephenson*
1964
1965 * RecordInvalid, RecordNotSaved => 422 Unprocessable Entity, StaleObjectError => 409 Conflict. #7097 *dkubb*
1966
1967 * Allow fields_for to be nested inside form_for, so that the name and id get properly constructed *Jamis Buck*
1968
1969 * Allow inGroupsOf and eachSlice to be called through rjs. #7046 *Cody Fauser*

1971 * Allow exempt_from_layout :rhtml. #6742, #7026 *Dan Manges, Squeegy*
1972
1973 * Recognize the .txt extension as Mime::TEXT *Rick Olson*
1974
1975 * Fix parsing of array[] CGI parameters so extra empty values aren't included. #6252 *Nicholas Seckar, aiwilliams, brentrowland*
1976
1977 * link_to_unless_current works with full URLs as well as paths. #6891 *Jarkko Laine, Manfred Stienstra, idrifter*
1978
1979 * Lookup the mime type for #auto_discovery_link_tag in the Mime::Type class. Closes #6941 *Josh Peek*

1983 * Fix no method error with error_messages_on. Closes #6935 *nik.wakelin Koz*
1984
1985 * Slight doc tweak to the ActionView::Helpers::PrototypeHelper#replace docs. Closes #6922 *Steven Bristol*

1995 * Make sure html_document is reset between integration test requests. *ctm*
1996
1997 * 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*
1998
1999 * Routing uses URI escaping for path components and CGI escaping for query parameters. *darix, Jeremy Kemper*
2000
2001 * 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*
2002
2003 * Singleton resources: POST /singleton => create, GET /singleton/new => new. *Jeremy Kemper*
2004
2005 * Use 400 Bad Request status for unrescued ActiveRecord::RecordInvalid exceptions. *Jeremy Kemper*
2006
2007 * Silence log_error deprecation warnings from inspecting deprecated instance variables. *Nate Wiger*

2019 * Fix a bug in Routing where a parameter taken from the path of the current request could not be used as a query parameter for the next. Closes #6752. *Nicholas Seckar*
2020
2021 * Unrescued ActiveRecord::RecordNotFound responds with 404 instead of 500. *Jeremy Kemper*
2022
2023 * Improved auto_link to match more valid urls correctly *Tobias Lütke*
2024
2025 * Add singleton resources. *Rick Olson*
2026
2027 map.resource :account
2028
2029 GET /account
2030 GET /account;edit
2031 UPDATE /account
2032 DELETE /account
2033
2034 * 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*
2035 # application/json response with body 'Element.show({:name: "David"})'
2036 respond_to do |format|
2037 format.json { render :json => { :name => "David" }.to_json, :callback => 'Element.show' }
2038 end
2039
2040 * Makes :discard_year work without breaking multi-attribute parsing in AR. #1260, #3800 *sean@ardismg.com, jmartin@desertflood.com, stephen@touset.org, Bob Silva*
2041
2042 * Adds html id attribute to date helper elements. #1050, #1382 *mortonda@dgrmm.net, David North, Bob Silva*
2043
2044 * Add :index and @auto_index capability to model driven date/time selects. #847, #2655 *moriq, Doug Fales, Bob Silva*
2045
2046 * Add :order to datetime_select, select_datetime, and select_date. #1427 *Timothee Peignier, Patrick Lenz, Bob Silva*
2047
2048 * Added time_select to work with time values in models. Update scaffolding. #2489, #2833 *Justin Palmer, Andre Caum, Bob Silva*
2049
2050 * Added :include_seconds to select_datetime, datetime_select and time_select. #2998 *csn, Bob Silva*
2051
2052 * All date/datetime selects can now accept an array of month names with :use_month_names. Allows for localization. #363 *tomasj, Bob Silva*
2053
2054 * Adds :time_separator to select_time and :date_separator to select_datetime. Preserves BC. #3811 *Bob Silva*
2055
2056 * Added map.root as an alias for map.connect '' *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2057
2058 * 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:
2059
2060 GET /posts/5.xml | request.format => Mime::XML
2061 GET /posts/5.xhtml | request.format => Mime::HTML
2062 GET /posts/5 | request.format => request.accepts.first (usually Mime::HTML for browsers)
2063
2064 * Added the option for extension aliases to mime type registration [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example (already in the default routes):
2065
2066 Mime::Type.register "text/html", :html, %w( application/xhtml+xml ), %w( xhtml )
2067
2068 ...will respond on both .html and .xhtml.
2069
2070 * @response.redirect_url works with 201 Created responses: just return headers['Location'] rather than checking the response status. *Jeremy Kemper*
2071
2072 * Added CSV to Mime::SET so that respond_to csv will work *Cody Fauser*
2073
2074 * Fixed that HEAD should return the proper Content-Length header (that is, actually use @body.size, not just 0) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2075
2076 * 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*
2077
2078 * Update Routing to complain when :controller is not specified by a route. Closes #6669. *Nicholas Seckar*
2079
2080 * Ensure render_to_string cleans up after itself when an exception is raised. #6658 *Rob Sanheim*
2081
2082 * Extract template_changed_since? from compile_template? so plugins may override its behavior for non-file-based templates. #6651 *Jeff Barczewski*
2083
2084 * Update to Prototype and script.aculo.us [5579]. *Thomas Fuchs*
2085
2086 * simple_format helper doesn't choke on nil. #6644 *jerry426*
2087
2088 * Update to Prototype 1.5.0_rc2 [5550] which makes it work in Opera again *Thomas Fuchs*
2089
2090 * 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*
2091
2092 * ActionView::Base.erb_variable accessor names the buffer variable used to render templates. Defaults to _erbout; use _buf for erubis. *Rick Olson*
2093
2094 * assert_select_rjs :remove. *Dylan Egan*
2095
2096 * Always clear model associations from session. #4795 *sd@notso.net, andylien@gmail.com*
2097
2098 * Update to Prototype 1.5.0_rc2. *Sam Stephenson*
2099
2100 * Remove JavaScriptLiteral in favor of ActiveSupport::JSON::Variable. *Sam Stephenson*
2101
2102 * Sync ActionController::StatusCodes::STATUS_CODES with http://www.iana.org/assignments/http-status-codes. #6586 *dkubb*
2103
2104 * 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*
2105
2106 * assert_response supports symbolic status codes. #6569 *Kevin Clark*
2107 assert_response :ok
2108 assert_response :not_found
2109 assert_response :forbidden
2110
2111 * Cache parsed query parameters. #6559 *Stefan Kaes*
2112
2113 * Deprecate JavaScriptHelper#update_element_function, which is superseeded by RJS *Thomas Fuchs*
2114
2115 * pluralize helper interprets nil as zero. #6474 *Tim Pope*
2116
2117 * Fix invalid test fixture exposed by stricter Ruby 1.8.5 multipart parsing. #6524 *Bob Silva*
2118
2119 * Set ActionView::Base.default_form_builder once rather than passing the :builder option to every form or overriding the form helper methods. *Jeremy Kemper*
2120
2121 * Deprecate expire_matched_fragments. Use expire_fragment instead. #6535 *Bob Silva*
2122
2123 * 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*
2124
2125 * Deprecate start_form_tag and end_form_tag. Use form_tag / '</form>' from now on. *Rick Olson*
2126
2127 * Added block-usage to PrototypeHelper#form_remote_tag, document block-usage of FormTagHelper#form_tag *Rick Olson*
2128
2129 * Add a 0 margin/padding div around the hidden _method input tag that form_tag outputs. *Rick Olson*
2130
2131 * Added block-usage to TagHelper#content_tag [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
2132
2133 <% content_tag :div, :class => "strong" %>
2134 Hello world!
2135 <% end %>
2136
2137 Will output:
2138 <div class="strong">Hello world!</div>
2139
2140 * Deprecated UrlHelper#link_to_image and UrlHelper#link_to :post => true #6409 *Bob Silva*
2141
2142 * 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*
2143
2144 * Fixed that setting RAILS_ASSET_ID to "" should not add a trailing slash after assets #6454 *Bob Silva/chrismear*
2145
2146 * Force *_url named routes to show the host in ActionView *Rick Olson*
2147
2148 <%= url_for ... %> # no host
2149 <%= foo_path %> # no host
2150 <%= foo_url %> # host!
2151
2152 * Add support for converting blocks into function arguments to JavaScriptGenerator#call and JavaScriptProxy#call. *Sam Stephenson*
2153
2154 * Add JavaScriptGenerator#literal for wrapping a string in an object whose #to_json is the string itself. *Sam Stephenson*
2155
2156 * Add <%= escape_once html %> to escape html while leaving any currently escaped entities alone. Fix button_to double-escaping issue. *Rick Olson*
2157
2158 * Fix double-escaped entities, such as &amp;amp;, &amp;#123;, etc. *Rick Olson*
2159
2160 * Fix deprecation warnings when rendering the template error template. *Nicholas Seckar*
2161
2162 * Fix routing to correctly determine when generation fails. Closes #6300. [psross].
2163
2164 * Fix broken assert_generates when extra keys are being checked. *Jamis Buck*
2165
2166 * Replace KCODE checks with String#chars for truncate. Closes #6385 *Manfred Stienstra*
2167
2168 * 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.*
2169
2170 * Use String#chars in TextHelper::excerpt. Closes #6386 *Manfred Stienstra*
2171
2172 * Install named routes into ActionView::Base instead of proxying them to the view via helper_method. Closes #5932. *Nicholas Seckar*
2173

2178 * Fix filter skipping in controller subclasses. #5949, #6297, #6299 *Martin Emde*
2179
2180 * 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*
2181
2182 * Rename test assertion to prevent shadowing. Closes #6306. *psross*
2183
2184 * Fixed that NumberHelper#number_to_delimiter should respect precision of higher than two digits #6231 *Philip Hallstrom*
2185
2186 * Fixed that FormHelper#radio_button didn't respect an :id being passed in #6266 *evansj*
2187
2188 * Added an html_options hash parameter to javascript_tag() and update_page_tag() helpers #6311 [tzaharia]. Example:
2189
2190 update_page_tag :defer => 'true' { |page| ... }
2191
2192 Gives:
2193
2194 <script defer="true" type="text/javascript">...</script>
2195
2196 Which is needed for dealing with the IE6 DOM when it's not yet fully loaded.
2197
2198 * Fixed that rescue template path shouldn't be hardcoded, then it's easier to hook in your own #6295 *Mike Naberezny*
2199
2200 * Fixed escaping of backslashes in JavaScriptHelper#escape_javascript #6302 *sven@c3d2.de*
2201
2202 * Fixed that some 500 rescues would cause 500's themselves because the response had not yet been generated #6329 *cmselmer*
2203
2204 * respond_to :html doesn't assume .rhtml. #6281 *Hampton Catlin*
2205
2206 * Fixed some deprecation warnings in ActionPack *Rick Olson*
2207
2208 * assert_select_rjs decodes escaped unicode chars since the Javascript generators encode them. #6240 *japgolly*
2209
2210 * Deprecation: @cookies, @headers, @request, @response will be removed after 1.2. Use the corresponding method instead. *Jeremy Kemper*
2211
2212 * 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:
2213
2214 head :status => 404 # expands to "404 Not Found"
2215 head :status => :not_found # expands to "404 Not Found"
2216 head :status => :created # expands to "201 Created"
2217
2218 * Add head(options = {}) for responses that have no body. [Jamis Buck]. Examples:
2219
2220 head :status => 404 # return an empty response with a 404 status
2221 head :location => person_path(@person), :status => 201
2222
2223 * Fix bug that kept any before_filter except the first one from being able to halt the before_filter chain. *Rick Olson*
2224
2225 * strip_links is case-insensitive. #6285 *tagoh, Bob Silva*
2226
2227 * Clear the cache of possible controllers whenever Routes are reloaded. *Nicholas Seckar*
2228
2229 * Filters overhaul including meantime filter support using around filters + blocks. #5949 *Martin Emde, Roman Le Negrate, Stefan Kaes, Jeremy Kemper*
2230
2231 * Update RJS render tests. *sam*
2232
2233 * Update CGI process to allow sessions to contain namespaced models. Closes #4638. *dfelstead@site5.com*
2234
2235 * Fix routing to respect user provided requirements and defaults when assigning default routing options (such as :action => 'index'). Closes #5950. *Nicholas Seckar*
2236
2237 * Rescue Errno::ECONNRESET to handle an unexpectedly closed socket connection. Improves SCGI reliability. #3368, #6226 *sdsykes, fhanshaw@vesaria.com*
2238
2239 * Added that respond_to blocks will automatically set the content type to be the same as is requested [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
2240
2241 respond_to do |format|
2242 format.html { render :text => "I'm being sent as text/html" }
2243 format.rss { render :text => "I'm being sent as application/rss+xml" }
2244 format.atom { render :text => "I'm being sent as application/xml", :content_type => Mime::XML }
2245 end
2246
2247 * Added utf-8 as the default charset for all renders. You can change this default using ActionController::Base.default_charset=(encoding) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2248
2249 * Added proper getters and setters for content type and charset [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example of what we used to do:
2250
2251 response.headers["Content-Type"] = "application/atom+xml; charset=utf-8"
2252
2253 ...now:
2254
2255 response.content_type = Mime::ATOM
2256 response.charset = "utf-8"
2257
2258 * Updated prototype.js to 1.5.0_rc1 with latest fixes. *Rick Olson*
2259
2260 - XPATH support
2261 - Make Form.getElements() return elements in the correct order
2262 - fix broken Form.serialize return
2263
2264 * Declare file extensions exempt from layouts. #6219 *brandon*
2265 Example: ActionController::Base.exempt_from_layout 'rpdf'
2266
2267 * Add chained replace/update support for assert_select_rjs *Rick Olson*
2268
2269 Given RJS like...
2270
2271 page['test1'].replace "<div id=\"1\">foo</div>"
2272 page['test2'].replace_html "<div id=\"2\">foo</div>"
2273
2274 Test it with...
2275
2276 assert_select_rjs :chained_replace
2277 assert_select_rjs :chained_replace, "test1"
2278
2279 assert_select_rjs :chained_replace_html
2280 assert_select_rjs :chained_replace_html, "test2"
2281
2282 * Load helpers in alphabetical order for consistency. Resolve cyclic javascript_helper dependency. #6132, #6178 *choonkeat@gmail.com*
2283
2284 * Skip params with empty names, such as the &=Save query string from <input type="submit"/>. #2569 *Manfred Stienstra, raphinou@yahoo.com*
2285
2286 * Fix assert_tag so that :content => "foo" does not match substrings, but only exact strings. Use :content => /foo/ to match substrings. #2799 *Eric Hodel*
2287
2288 * Add descriptive messages to the exceptions thrown by cgi_methods. #6091, #6103 *Nicholas Seckar, Bob Silva*
2289
2290 * Update JavaScriptGenerator#show/hide/toggle/remove to new Prototype syntax for multiple ids, #6068 *petermichaux@gmail.com*
2291
2292 * Update UrlWriter to support :only_path. *Nicholas Seckar, Dave Thomas*
2293
2294 * 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:
2295
2296 link_to("Hider", nil, :class => "hider_link") { |p| p[:something].hide }
2297
2298 ...can be written like this:
2299
2300 link_to("Hider", :class => "hider_link") { |p| p[:something].hide }
2301
2302 * Update to script.aculo.us 1.6.3 *Thomas Fuchs*
2303
2304 * Update to Prototype 1.5.0_rc1 *sam*
2305
2306 * Added access to nested attributes in RJS #4548 [richcollins@gmail.com]. Examples:
2307
2308 page['foo']['style'] # => $('foo').style;
2309 page['foo']['style']['color'] # => $('blank_slate').style.color;
2310 page['foo']['style']['color'] = 'red' # => $('blank_slate').style.color = 'red';
2311 page['foo']['style'].color = 'red' # => $('blank_slate').style.color = 'red';
2312
2313 * Fixed that AssetTagHelper#image_tag and others using compute_public_path should not modify the incoming source argument (closes #5102) *eule@space.ch*
2314
2315 * Deprecated the auto-appending of .png to AssetTagHelper#image_tag calls that doesn't have an extension *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2316
2317 * Fixed FormOptionsHelper#select to respect :selected value #5813
2318
2319 * Fixed TextHelper#simple_format to deal with multiple single returns within a single paragraph #5835 *moriq@moriq.com*
2320
2321 * Fixed TextHelper#pluralize to handle 1 as a string #5909 *rails@bencurtis.com*
2322
2323 * Improved resolution of DateHelper#distance_of_time_in_words for better precision #5994 *Bob Silva*
2324
2325 * 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*
2326
2327 * Integration tests: thoroughly test ActionController::Integration::Session. #6022 *Kevin Clark*
2328 (tests skipped unless you `gem install mocha`)
2329
2330 * Added deprecation language for pagination which will become a plugin by Rails 2.0 *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2331
2332 * Added deprecation language for in_place_editor and auto_complete_field that both pieces will become plugins by Rails 2.0 *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2333
2334 * Deprecated all of ActionController::Dependencies. All dependency loading is now handled from Active Support *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2335
2336 * Added assert_select* for CSS selector-based testing (deprecates assert_tag) #5936 *assaf.arkin@gmail.com*
2337
2338 * radio_button_tag generates unique id attributes. #3353 *Bob Silva, somekool@gmail.com*
2339
2340 * strip_tags passes through blank args such as nil or "". #2229, #6702 *duncan@whomwah.com, dharana*
2341
2342 * Cleanup assert_tag :children counting. #2181 *jamie@bravenet.com*
2343
2344 * button_to accepts :method so you can PUT and DELETE with it. #6005 *Dan Webb*
2345
2346 * Update sanitize text helper to strip plaintext tags, and <img src="javascript:bang">. *Rick Olson*
2347
2348 * Update routing documentation. Closes #6017 *Nathan Witmer*
2349
2350 * Add routing tests to assert that RoutingError is raised when conditions aren't met. Closes #6016 *Nathan Witmer*
2351
2352 * Deprecation: update docs. #5998 *Jakob Skjerning, Kevin Clark*
2353
2354 * Make auto_link parse a greater subset of valid url formats. *Jamis Buck*
2355
2356 * 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*
2357
2358 * Tighten rescue clauses. #5985 *james@grayproductions.net*
2359
2360 * Fix send_data documentation typo. #5982 *brad@madriska.com*
2361
2362 * Switch to using FormEncodedPairParser for parsing request parameters. *Nicholas Seckar, David Heinemeier Hansson*
2363
2364 * 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*
2365
2366 * Deprecation: test deprecated instance vars in partials. *Jeremy Kemper*
2367
2368 * Add UrlWriter to allow writing urls from Mailers and scripts. *Nicholas Seckar*
2369
2370 * Clean up and run the Active Record integration tests by default. #5854 *Kevin Clark, Jeremy Kemper*
2371
2372 * Correct example in cookies docs. #5832 *jessemerriman@warpmail.net*
2373
2374 * Updated to script.aculo.us 1.6.2 *Thomas Fuchs*
2375
2376 * Relax Routing's anchor pattern warning; it was preventing use of [^/] inside restrictions. *Nicholas Seckar*
2377
2378 * Add controller_paths variable to Routing. *Nicholas Seckar*
2379
2380 * Fix assert_redirected_to issue with named routes for module controllers. *Rick Olson*
2381
2382 * Tweak RoutingError message to show option diffs, not just missing named route significant keys. *Rick Olson*
2383
2384 * Invoke method_missing directly on hidden actions. Closes #3030. *Nicholas Seckar*
2385
2386 * Require Tempfile explicitly for TestUploadedFile due to changes in class auto loading. *Rick Olson*
2387
2388 * Add RoutingError exception when RouteSet fails to generate a path from a Named Route. *Rick Olson*
2389
2390 * Replace Reloadable with Reloadable::Deprecated. *Nicholas Seckar*
2391
2392 * Deprecation: check whether instance variables have been monkeyed with before assigning them to deprecation proxies. Raises a RuntimeError if so. *Jeremy Kemper*
2393
2394 * Add support for the param_name parameter to the auto_complete_field helper. #5026 *david.a.williams@gmail.com*
2395
2396 * 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*
2397
2398 * Make Routing noisy when an anchor regexp is assigned to a segment. #5674 *François Beausoleil*
2399
2400 * 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*
2401
2402 * Short documentation to mention use of Mime::Type.register. #5710 *choonkeat@gmail.com*
2403
2404 * Make controller_path available as an instance method. #5724 *jmckible@gmail.com*
2405
2406 * Update query parser to support adjacent hashes. *Nicholas Seckar*
2407
2408 * 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.*
2409
2410 * Restrict Request Method hacking with ?_method to POST requests. *Rick Olson*
2411
2412 * Fix bug when passing multiple options to SimplyRestful, like :new => { :preview => :get, :draft => :get }. *Rick Olson, Josh Susser, Lars Pind*
2413
2414 * Dup the options passed to map.resources so that multiple resources get the same options. *Rick Olson*
2415
2416 * Fixed the new_#{resource}_url route and added named route tests for Simply Restful. *Rick Olson*
2417
2418 * Added map.resources from the Simply Restful plugin [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples (the API has changed to use plurals!):
2419
2420 map.resources :messages
2421 map.resources :messages, :comments
2422 map.resources :messages, :new => { :preview => :post }
2423
2424 * Fixed that integration simulation of XHRs should set Accept header as well *Edward Frederick*
2425
2426 * TestRequest#reset_session should restore a TestSession, not a hash *Michael Koziarski*
2427
2428 * Don't search a load-path of '.' for controller files *Jamis Buck*
2429
2430 * Update integration.rb to require test_process explicitly instead of via Dependencies. *Nicholas Seckar*
2431
2432 * Fixed that you can still access the flash after the flash has been reset in reset_session. Closes #5584 *lmarlow*
2433
2434 * Allow form_for and fields_for to work with indexed form inputs. *Jeremy Kemper, Matt Lyon*
2435
2436 <% form_for 'post[]', @post do |f| -%>
2437 <% end -%>
2438
2439 * Remove leak in development mode by replacing define_method with module_eval. *Nicholas Seckar*
2440
2441 * Provide support for decimal columns to form helpers. Closes #5672. *Dave Thomas*
2442
2443 * Update documentation for erb trim syntax. #5651 *matt@mattmargolis.net*
2444

2447 * Reset @html_document between requests so assert_tag works. #4810 *Jarkko Laine, easleydp@gmail.com*
2448
2449 * Update render :partial documentation. #5646 *matt@mattmargolis.net*
2450
2451 * Integration tests behave well with render_component. #4632 *edward.frederick@revolution.com, dev.rubyonrails@maxdunn.com*
2452
2453 * Added exception handling of missing layouts #5373 *chris@ozmm.org*
2454
2455 * Fixed that real files and symlinks should be treated the same when compiling templates #5438 *zachary@panandscan.com*
2456
2457 * Fixed that the flash should be reset when reset_session is called #5584 *Shugo Maeda*
2458
2459 * Added special case for "1 Byte" in NumberHelper#number_to_human_size #5593 *murpyh@rubychan.de*
2460
2461 * Fixed proper form-encoded parameter parsing for requests with "Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded; charset=utf-8" (note the presence of a charset directive) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2462
2463 * Add route_name_path method to generate only the path for a named routes. For example, map.person will add person_path. *Nicholas Seckar*
2464
2465 * Avoid naming collision among compiled view methods. *Jeremy Kemper*
2466
2467 * Fix CGI extensions when they expect string but get nil in Windows. Closes #5276 *Mislav Marohnić*
2468
2469 * Determine the correct template_root for deeply nested components. #2841 *s.brink@web.de*
2470
2471 * Fix that routes with *path segments in the recall can generate URLs. *Rick Olson*
2472
2473 * Fix strip_links so that it doesn't hang on multiline <acronym> tags *Jamis Buck*
2474
2475 * Remove problematic control chars in rescue template. #5316 *Stefan Kaes*
2476
2477 * Make sure passed routing options are not mutated by routing code. #5314 *Blair Zajac*
2478
2479 * Make sure changing the controller from foo/bar to bing/bang does not change relative to foo. *Jamis Buck*
2480
2481 * Escape the path before routing recognition. #3671
2482
2483 * Make sure :id and friends are unescaped properly. #5275 *me@julik.nl*
2484
2485 * Fix documentation for with_routing to reflect new reality. #5281 *rramdas@gmail.com*
2486
2487 * Rewind readable CGI params so others may reread them (such as CGI::Session when passing the session id in a multipart form). #210 *mklame@atxeu.com, matthew@walker.wattle.id.au*
2488
2489 * Added Mime::TEXT (text/plain) and Mime::ICS (text/calendar) as new default types *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2490
2491 * Added Mime::Type.register(string, symbol, synonyms = []) for adding new custom mime types [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example: Mime::Type.register("image/gif", :gif)
2492
2493 * Added support for Mime objects in render :content_type option [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example: render :text => some_atom, :content_type => Mime::ATOM
2494
2495 * Add :status option to send_data and send_file. Defaults to '200 OK'. #5243 *Manfred Stienstra <m.stienstra@fngtps.com>*
2496
2497 * Routing rewrite. Simpler, faster, easier to understand. The published API for config/routes.rb is unchanged, but nearly everything else is different, so expect breakage in plugins and libs that try to fiddle with routes. *Nicholas Seckar, Jamis Buck*
2498
2499 map.connect '/foo/:id', :controller => '...', :action => '...'
2500 map.connect '/foo/:id.:format', :controller => '...', :action => '...'
2501 map.connect '/foo/:id', ..., :conditions => { :method => :get }
2502
2503 * Cope with missing content type and length headers. Parse parameters from multipart and urlencoded request bodies only. *Jeremy Kemper*
2504
2505 * Accept multipart PUT parameters. #5235 *guy.naor@famundo.com*
2506
2507 * Added interrogation of params[:format] to determine Accept type. If :format is specified and matches a declared extension, like "rss" or "xml", that mime type will be put in front of the accept handler. This means you can link to the same action from different extensions and use that fact to determine output [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
2508
2509 class WeblogController < ActionController::Base
2510 def index
2511 @posts = Post.find :all
2512
2513 respond_to do |format|
2514 format.html
2515 format.xml { render :xml => @posts.to_xml }
2516 format.rss { render :action => "feed.rxml" }
2517 end
2518 end
2519 end
2520
2521 \# returns HTML when requested by a browser, since the browser
2522 \# has the HTML mimetype at the top of its priority list
2523 Accept: text/html
2524 GET /weblog
2525
2526 \# returns the XML
2527 Accept: application/xml
2528 GET /weblog
2529
2530 \# returns the HTML
2531 Accept: application/xml
2532 GET /weblog.html
2533
2534 \# returns the XML
2535 Accept: text/html
2536 GET /weblog.xml
2537
2538 All this relies on the fact that you have a route that includes .:format.
2539
2540 * Expanded :method option in FormTagHelper#form_tag, FormHelper#form_for, PrototypeHelper#remote_form_for, PrototypeHelper#remote_form_tag, and PrototypeHelper#link_to_remote to allow for verbs other than GET and POST by automatically creating a hidden form field named _method, which will simulate the other verbs over post *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2541
2542 * Added :method option to UrlHelper#link_to, which allows for using other verbs than GET for the link. This replaces the :post option, which is now deprecated. Example: link_to "Destroy", person_url(:id => person), :method => :delete *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2543
2544 * follow_redirect doesn't complain about being redirected to the same controller. #5153 *dymo@mk.ukrtelecom.ua*
2545
2546 * Add layout attribute to response object with the name of the layout that was rendered, or nil if none rendered. *Kevin Clark*
2547
