2011-12-06 Allow layout fallback when using `layout` method
3 * Rails will now use your default layout (such as "layouts/application") when you specify a layout with `:only` and `:except` condition, and those conditions fail. *Prem Sichanugrist*
4
5 For example, consider this snippet:
6
7 class CarsController
8 layout 'single_car', :only => :show
9 end
10
11 Rails will use 'layouts/single_car' when a request comes in `:show` action, and use 'layouts/application' (or 'layouts/cars', if exists) when a request comes in for any other actions.

2011-12-04 form_for with +:as+ option uses "action_as" as css class and id
13 * form_for with +:as+ option uses "#{action}_#{as}" as css class and id:
14
15 Before:
16
17 form_for(@user, :as => 'client') # => "<form class="client_new">..."
18
19 Now:
20
21 form_for(@user, :as => 'client') # => "<form class="new_client">..."

2011-11-28 update CHANGELOG
33 * You can provide a namespace for your form to ensure uniqueness of id attributes on form elements.
34 The namespace attribute will be prefixed with underscore on the generate HTML id. *Vasiliy Ermolovich*
35
36 Example:
37
38 <%= form_for(@offer, :namespace => 'namespace') do |f| %>
39 <%= f.label :version, 'Version' %>:
40 <%= f.text_field :version %>
41 <% end %>

2011-11-22 deprecation warning, changelog entry
43 * Refactor ActionDispatch::ShowExceptions. Controller is responsible for choice to show exceptions. *Sergey Nartimov*
44
45 It's possible to override +show_detailed_exceptions?+ in controllers to specify which requests should provide debugging information on errors.
46

2011-11-04 Convert CHANGELOGs to Markdown format.
47 * Responders now return 204 No Content for API requests without a response body (as in the new scaffold) *José Valim*
48
49 * Added ActionDispatch::RequestId middleware that'll make a unique X-Request-Id header available to the response and enables the ActionDispatch::Request#uuid method. This makes it easy to trace requests from end-to-end in the stack and to identify individual requests in mixed logs like Syslog *DHH*
50
51 * Limit the number of options for select_year to 1000.
52
53 Pass the :max_years_allowed option to set your own limit.
54
55 *Libo Cannici*
56
57 * Passing formats or handlers to render :template and friends is deprecated. For example: *Nick Sutterer & José Valim*
58
59 render :template => "foo.html.erb"
60
61 Instead, you can provide :handlers and :formats directly as option:
62 render :template => "foo", :formats => [:html, :js], :handlers => :erb
63
64 * Changed log level of warning for missing CSRF token from :debug to :warn. *Mike Dillon*
65
66 * content_tag_for and div_for can now take the collection of records. It will also yield the record as the first argument if you set a receiving argument in your block *Prem Sichanugrist*
67
68 So instead of having to do this:
69
70 @items.each do |item|
71 content_tag_for(:li, item) do
72 Title: <%= item.title %>
73 end
74 end
75
76 You can now do this:
77
78 content_tag_for(:li, @items) do |item|
79 Title: <%= item.title %>
80 end
81
82 * send_file now guess the mime type *Esad Hajdarevic*
83
84 * Mime type entries for PDF, ZIP and other formats were added *Esad Hajdarevic*
85
86 * Generate hidden input before select with :multiple option set to true.
87 This is useful when you rely on the fact that when no options is set,
88 the state of select will be sent to rails application. Without hidden field
89 nothing is sent according to HTML spec *Bogdan Gusiev*
90
91 * Refactor ActionController::TestCase cookies *Andrew White*
92
93 Assigning cookies for test cases should now use cookies[], e.g:
94
95 cookies[:email] = 'user@example.com'
96 get :index
97 assert_equal 'user@example.com', cookies[:email]
98
99 To clear the cookies, use clear, e.g:
100
101 cookies.clear
102 get :index
103 assert_nil cookies[:email]
104
105 We now no longer write out HTTP_COOKIE and the cookie jar is
106 persistent between requests so if you need to manipulate the environment
107 for your test you need to do it before the cookie jar is created.

115 relative if no request is available *Jonathan del Strother*

2011-11-17 _html translation should escape interpolated arguments
126 * Fix XSS security vulnerability in the `translate` helper method. When using interpolation
127 in combination with HTML-safe translations, the interpolated input would not get HTML
128 escaped. *GH 3664*
129
130 Before:
131
132 translate('foo_html', :something => '<script>') # => "...<script>..."
133

2011-11-06 Implement a workaround for a bug in ruby-1.9.3p0.
151 * Implement a workaround for a bug in ruby-1.9.3p0 where an error would be raised
152 while attempting to convert a template from one encoding to another.
153
154 Please see http://redmine.ruby-lang.org/issues/5564 for details of the bug.
155
156 The workaround is to load all conversions into memory ahead of time, and will
157 only happen if the ruby version is *exactly* 1.9.3p0. The hope is obviously that
158 the underlying problem will be resolved in the next patchlevel release of
159 1.9.3.

2011-11-04 Convert CHANGELOGs to Markdown format.
165 ## Rails 3.1.1 (unreleased) ##
166
167 * javascript_path and stylesheet_path now refer to /assets if asset pipelining
168 is on. [Santiago Pastorino]
169 * button_to support form option. Now you're able to pass for example
170 'data-type' => 'json'. [ihower]
171 * image_path and image_tag should use /assets if asset pipelining is turned
172 on. Closes #3126 [Santiago Pastorino and christos]
173 * Avoid use of existing precompiled assets during rake assets:precompile run.
174 Closes #3119 [Guillermo Iguaran]
175 * Copy assets to nondigested filenames too *Santiago Pastorino*
176
177 * Give precedence to `config.digest = false` over the existence of
178 manifest.yml asset digests [christos]
179 * escape options for the stylesheet_link_tag method *Alexey Vakhov*
180
181 * Re-launch assets:precompile task using (Rake.)ruby instead of Kernel.exec so
182 it works on Windows [cablegram]
183 * env var passed to process shouldn't be modified in process method. [Santiago
184 Pastorino]
185 * `rake assets:precompile` loads the application but does not initialize
186 it.
187 To the app developer, this means configuration add in
188 config/initializers/* will not be executed.
189 Plugins developers need to special case their initializers that are
190 meant to be run in the assets group by adding :group => :assets. *José Valim*
191
192 * Sprockets uses config.assets.prefix for asset_path *asee*
193
194 * FileStore key_file_path properly limit filenames to 255 characters. *phuibonhoa*
195
196 * Fix Hash#to_query edge case with html_safe strings. *brainopia*
197
198 * Allow asset tag helper methods to accept :digest => false option in order to completely avoid the digest generation.
199 Useful for linking assets from static html files or from emails when the user could probably look at an older html email with an older asset. [Santiago Pastorino]
200 * Don't mount Sprockets server at config.assets.prefix if config.assets.compile is false. *Mark J. Titorenko*
201
202 * Set relative url root in assets when controller isn't available for Sprockets (eg. Sass files using asset_path). Fixes #2435 *Guillermo Iguaran*
203
204 * Fix basic auth credential generation to not make newlines. GH #2882
205
206 * Fixed the behavior of asset pipeline when config.assets.digest and config.assets.compile are false and requested asset isn't precompiled.
207 Before the requested asset were compiled anyway ignoring that the config.assets.compile flag is false. *Guillermo Iguaran*
208
209 * CookieJar is now Enumerable. Fixes #2795
210
211 * Fixed AssetNotPrecompiled error raised when rake assets:precompile is compiling certain .erb files. See GH #2763 #2765 #2805 *Guillermo Iguaran*
212
213 * Manifest is correctly placed in assets path when default assets prefix is changed. Fixes #2776 *Guillermo Iguaran*
214
215 * Fixed stylesheet_link_tag and javascript_include_tag to respect additional options passed by the users when debug is on. *Guillermo Iguaran*
216
217
218 ## Rails 3.1.0 (August 30, 2011) ##
219
220 * Param values are `paramified` in controller tests. *David Chelimsky*
221
222 * 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*
223
224 * The submit form helper does not generate an id "object_name_id" anymore. *fbrusatti*
225
226 * Make sure respond_with with :js tries to render a template in all cases *José Valim*
227
228 * json_escape will now return a SafeBuffer string if it receives SafeBuffer string *tenderlove*
229
230 * Make sure escape_js returns SafeBuffer string if it receives SafeBuffer string *Prem Sichanugrist*
231
232 * Fix escape_js to work correctly with the new SafeBuffer restriction *Paul Gallagher*
233
234 * Brought back alternative convention for namespaced models in i18n *thoefer*
235
236 Now the key can be either "namespace.model" or "namespace/model" until further deprecation.
237
238 * It is prohibited to perform a in-place SafeBuffer mutation *tenderlove*
239
240 The old behavior of SafeBuffer allowed you to mutate string in place via
241 method like `sub!`. These methods can add unsafe strings to a safe buffer,
242 and the safe buffer will continue to be marked as safe.
243
244 An example problem would be something like this:
245
246 <%= link_to('hello world', @user).sub!(/hello/, params[:xss]) %>
247
248 In the above example, an untrusted string (`params[:xss]`) is added to the
249 safe buffer returned by `link_to`, and the untrusted content is successfully
250 sent to the client without being escaped. To prevent this from happening
251 `sub!` and other similar methods will now raise an exception when they are called on a safe buffer.
252
253 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:
254
255 <%= link_to('hello world', @user).sub(/hello/, params[:xss]) %>
256
257 The new versions will now ensure that *all* strings returned by these methods on safe buffers are marked unsafe.
258
259 You can read more about this change in http://groups.google.com/group/rubyonrails-security/browse_thread/thread/2e516e7acc96c4fb
260
261 * Warn if we cannot verify CSRF token authenticity *José Valim*
262
263 * Allow AM/PM format in datetime selectors *Aditya Sanghi*
264
265 * Only show dump of regular env methods on exception screen (not all the rack crap) *DHH*
266
267 * auto_link has been removed with no replacement. If you still use auto_link
268 please install the rails_autolink gem:
269 http://github.com/tenderlove/rails_autolink
270
271 *tenderlove*
272
273 * Added streaming support, you can enable it with: *José Valim*
274
275 class PostsController < ActionController::Base
276 stream :only => :index
277 end
278
279 Please read the docs at `ActionController::Streaming` for more information.
280
281 * Added `ActionDispatch::Request.ignore_accept_header` to ignore accept headers and only consider the format given as parameter *José Valim*
282
283 * Created `ActionView::Renderer` and specified an API for `ActionView::Context`, check those objects for more information *José Valim*
284
285 * 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*
286
287 This can be customized by setting `ActionController::Base.wrap_parameters` in `config/initializer/wrap_parameters.rb`
288
289 * RJS has been extracted out to a gem. *fxn*
290
291 * Implicit actions named not_implemented can be rendered. *Santiago Pastorino*
292
293 * Wildcard route will always match the optional format segment by default. *Prem Sichanugrist*
294
295 For example if you have this route:
296
297 match '*pages' => 'pages#show'
298
299 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:
300
301 match '*pages' => 'pages#show', :format => false
302
303 * Added Base.http_basic_authenticate_with to do simple http basic authentication with a single class method call *DHH*
304
305 class PostsController < ApplicationController
306 USER_NAME, PASSWORD = "dhh", "secret"
307
308 before_filter :authenticate, :except => [ :index ]
309
310 def index
311 render :text => "Everyone can see me!"
312 end
313
314 def edit
315 render :text => "I'm only accessible if you know the password"
316 end
317
318 private
319 def authenticate
320 authenticate_or_request_with_http_basic do |user_name, password|
321 user_name == USER_NAME && password == PASSWORD
322 end
323 end
324 end
325
326 ..can now be written as
327
328 class PostsController < ApplicationController
329 http_basic_authenticate_with :name => "dhh", :password => "secret", :except => :index
330
331 def index
332 render :text => "Everyone can see me!"
333 end
334
335 def edit
336 render :text => "I'm only accessible if you know the password"
337 end
338 end
339
340 * 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*
341
342 * Allow FormHelper#form_for to specify the :method as a direct option instead of through the :html hash *DHH*
343
344 form_for(@post, remote: true, method: :delete) instead of form_for(@post, remote: true, html: { method: :delete })
345
346 * 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*
347
348 * 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*
349
350 * URL parameters which return false for to_param now appear in the query string (previously they were removed) *Andrew White*
351
352 * URL parameters which return nil for to_param are now removed from the query string *Andrew White*
353
354 * ActionDispatch::MiddlewareStack now uses composition over inheritance. It is
355 no longer an array which means there may be methods missing that were not tested.
356 * Add an :authenticity_token option to form_tag for custom handling or to omit the token (pass :authenticity_token => false). *Jakub Kuźma, Igor Wiedler*
357
358 * HTML5 button_tag helper. *Rizwan Reza*
359
360 * Template lookup now searches further up in the inheritance chain. *Artemave*
361
362 * Brought back config.action_view.cache_template_loading, which allows to decide whether templates should be cached or not. *Piotr Sarnacki*
363
364 * url_for and named url helpers now accept :subdomain and :domain as options, *Josh Kalderimis*
365
366 * 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*
367
368 * 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*
369
370 * Added a convenience idiom to generate HTML5 data-* attributes in tag helpers from a :data hash of options:
371
372 tag("div", :data => {:name => 'Stephen', :city_state => %w(Chicago IL)})
373 # => <div data-name="Stephen" data-city-state="[&quot;Chicago&quot;,&quot;IL&quot;]" />
374
375 Keys are dasherized. Values are JSON-encoded, except for strings and symbols. *Stephen Celis*
376
377 * Deprecate old template handler API. The new API simply requires a template handler to respond to call. *José Valim*
378
379 * :rhtml and :rxml were finally removed as template handlers. *José Valim*
380
381 * Moved etag responsibility from ActionDispatch::Response to the middleware stack. *José Valim*
382
383 * 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*
384
385 * file_field automatically adds :multipart => true to the enclosing form. *Santiago Pastorino*
386
387 * Renames csrf_meta_tag -> csrf_meta_tags, and aliases csrf_meta_tag for backwards compatibility. *fxn*
388
389 * 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*
390
391
392 ## Rails 3.0.7 (April 18, 2011) ##
393
394 * No changes.
395
396
397 * Rails 3.0.6 (April 5, 2011)
398
399 * Fixed XSS vulnerability in `auto_link`. `auto_link` no longer marks input as
400 html safe. Please make sure that calls to auto_link() are wrapped in a
401 sanitize(), or a raw() depending on the type of input passed to auto_link().
402 For example:
403
404 <%= sanitize(auto_link(some_user_input)) %>
405
406 Thanks to Torben Schulz for reporting this. The fix can be found here:
407 61ee3449674c591747db95f9b3472c5c3bd9e84d
408
409 * 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*
410
411 * Fixes an issue with number_to_human when converting values which are less than 1 but greater than -1 *Josh Kalderimis*
412
413 * 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*
414
415 * URL parameters which return nil for to_param are now removed from the query string *Andrew White*
416
417 * Don't allow i18n to change the minor version, version now set to ~> 0.5.0 *Santiago Pastorino*
418
419 * Make TranslationHelper#translate use the :rescue_format option in I18n 0.5.0 *Sven Fuchs*
420
421 * Fix regression: javascript_include_tag shouldn't raise if you register an expansion key with nil or [] value *Santiago Pastorino*
422
423 * 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*
424
425
426 ## Rails 3.0.5 (February 26, 2011) ##
427

431 ## Rails 3.0.4 (February 8, 2011) ##
432
433 * No changes.
434
435
436 ## Rails 3.0.3 (November 16, 2010) ##
437
438 * When ActiveRecord::Base objects are sent to predicate methods, the id of the object should be sent to ARel, not the ActiveRecord::Base object.
439
440 * :constraints routing should only do sanity checks against regular expressions. String arguments are OK.
441
442
443 ## Rails 3.0.2 (November 15, 2010) ##
444
445 * The helper number_to_currency accepts a new :negative_format option to be able to configure how to render negative amounts. *Don Wilson*
446
447
448 ## Rails 3.0.1 (October 15, 2010) ##
449

453 ## Rails 3.0.0 (August 29, 2010) ##
454
455 * 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*
456
457 * 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*
458
459 * 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*
460
461 * Support routing constraints in functional tests. *Andrew White*
462
463 * Add a header that tells Internet Explorer (all versions) to use the best available standards support. *Yehuda Katz*
464
465 * Allow stylesheet/javascript extensions to be changed through railties. *Josh Kalderimis*
466
467 * link_to, button_to, and tag/tag_options now rely on html_escape instead of escape_once. *fxn*
468
469 * url_for returns always unescaped strings, and the :escape option is gone. *fxn*
470
471 * Added accept-charset parameter and _snowman hidden field to force the contents
472 of Rails POSTed forms to be in UTF-8 *Yehuda Katz*
473
474 * Upgrade to Rack 1.2.1 *Jeremy Kemper*
475
476 * Allow :path to be given to match/get/post/put/delete instead of :path_names in the new router *Carlos Antônio da Silva*
477
478 * Added resources_path_names to the new router DSL *José Valim*
479
480 * Allow options to be given to the namespace method in the new router *Carlos Antônio da Silva*
481
482 * Deprecate :name_prefix in the new router DSL *José Valim*
483
484 * Add shallow routes back to the new router *Diego Carrion, Andrew White*
485
486 resources :posts do
487 shallow do
488 resources :comments
489 end
490 end
491
492 You can now use comment_path for /comments/1 instead of post_comment_path for /posts/1/comments/1.
493
494 * 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*
495
496 * Removed textilize, textilize_without_paragraph and markdown helpers. *Santiago Pastorino*
497
498 * Remove middleware laziness *José Valim*
499
500 * Make session stores rely on request.cookie_jar and change set_session semantics to return the cookie value instead of a boolean. *José Valim*
501
502 * OAuth 2: HTTP Token Authorization support to complement Basic and Digest Authorization. *Rick Olson*
503
504 * Fixed inconsistencies in form builder and view helpers #4432 *Neeraj Singh*
505
506 * 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*
507
508 * Renamed the field error CSS class from fieldWithErrors to field_with_errors for consistency. *Jeremy Kemper*
509
510 * Add support for shorthand routes like /projects/status(.:format) #4423 *Diego Carrion*
511
512 * 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*
513
514 * 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*
515
516 * Removed verify method in controllers. *JV*
517 It's now available as a plugin at http://github.com/rails/verification
518
519 * Removed input, form, error_messages_for and error_message_on from views. *JV*
520 It's now available as a plugin at http://github.com/rails/dynamic_form
521
522 * Routes can be scoped by controller module. *Jeremy Kemper*
523
524 # /session => Auth::SessionsController
525 scope :module => 'auth' do
526 resource :session
527 end
528
529 * Added #favicon_link_tag, it uses #image_path so in particular the favicon gets an asset ID *fxn*
530
531 * Fixed that default locale templates should be used if the current locale template is missing *DHH*
532
533 * Added all the new HTML5 form types as individual form tag methods (search, url, number, etc) #3646 *Stephen Celis*
534
535 * Changed the object used in routing constraints to be an instance of
536 ActionDispatch::Request rather than Rack::Request *YK*
537
538 * Changed ActionDispatch::Request#method to return a String, to be compatible
539 with Rack::Request. Added ActionDispatch::Request#method_symbol to
540 return a symbol form of the request method. *YK*
541
542 * Changed ActionDispatch::Request#method to return the original
543 method and #request_method to return the overridden method in the
544 case of methodoverride being used (this means that #method returns
545 "HEAD" and #request_method returns "GET" in HEAD requests). This
546 is for compatibility with Rack::Request *YK*
547
548 * #concat is now deprecated in favor of using <%= %> helpers *YK*
549
550 * Block helpers now return Strings, so you can use <%= form_for @foo do |f| %>.
551 <% form_for do |f| %> still works with deprecation notices *YK*
552
553 * Add a new #mount method on the router that does not anchor the PATH_INFO
554 at the end *YK & CL*
555
556 * Create a new LookupContext object that is responsible for performantly
557 finding a template for a given pattern *JV*
558
559 * Removed relative_url_for in favor of respecting SCRIPT_NAME *YK & CL*
560
561 * Changed file streaming to use Rack::Sendfile middleware *YK*
562
563 * ActionDispatch::Request#content_type returns a String to be compatible with
564 Rack::Request. Use #content_mime_type for the Mime::Type instance *YK*
565
566 * Updated Prototype to 1.6.1 and Scriptaculous to 1.8.3 *ML*
567
568 * Change the preferred way that URL helpers are included into a class*YK & CL*
569
570 # for all helpers including named routes
571 include Rails.application.router.url_helpers
572
573 # for just url_for
574 include Rails.application.router.url_for
575
576 * Fixed that PrototypeHelper#update_page should return html_safe *DHH*
577
578 * Fixed that much of DateHelper wouldn't return html_safe? strings *DHH*
579
580 * Fixed that fragment caching should return a cache hit as html_safe (or it would all just get escaped) *DHH*
581
582 * Added that ActionController::Base now does helper :all instead of relying on the default ApplicationController in Rails to do it *DHH*
583
584 * Added ActionDispatch::Request#authorization to access the http authentication header regardless of its proxy hiding *DHH*
585
586 * Added :alert, :notice, and :flash as options to ActionController::Base#redirect_to that'll automatically set the proper flash before the redirection [DHH]. Examples:
587
588 flash[:notice] = 'Post was created'
589 redirect_to(@post)
590
591 ...becomes:
592
593 redirect_to(@post, :notice => 'Post was created')
594
595 * 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*
596
597
598 * Introduce grouped_collection_select helper. #1249 *Dan Codeape, Erik Ostrom*
599
600 * Make sure javascript_include_tag/stylesheet_link_tag does not append ".js" or ".css" onto external urls. #1664 *Matthew Rudy Jacobs*
601
602 * Ruby 1.9: fix Content-Length for multibyte send_data streaming. #2661 *Sava Chankov*
603
604 * Ruby 1.9: ERB template encoding using a magic comment at the top of the file. *Jeremy Kemper*
605 <%# encoding: utf-8 %>
606
607 * Change integration test helpers to accept Rack environment instead of just HTTP Headers *Pratik Naik*
608
609 Before : get '/path', {}, 'Accept' => 'text/javascript'
610 After : get '/path', {}, 'HTTP_ACCEPT' => 'text/javascript'
611
612 * Instead of checking Rails.env.test? in Failsafe middleware, check env["rails.raise_exceptions"] *Bryan Helmkamp*
613
614 * Fixed that TestResponse.cookies was returning cookies unescaped #1867 *Doug McInnes*
615
616
617 ## 2.3.2 Final (March 15, 2009) ##
618
619 * Fixed that redirection would just log the options, not the final url (which lead to "Redirected to #<Post:0x23150b8>") *DHH*
620
621 * Don't check authenticity tokens for any AJAX requests *Ross Kaffenberger/Bryan Helmkamp*
622
623 * Added ability to pass in :public => true to fresh_when, stale?, and expires_in to make the request proxy cachable #2095 *Gregg Pollack*
624
625 * Fixed that passing a custom form builder would be forwarded to nested fields_for calls #2023 *Eloy Duran/Nate Wiger*
626
627 * Form option helpers now support disabled option tags and the use of lambdas for selecting/disabling option tags from collections #837 *Tekin*
628
629 * 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*
630
631 * Fix a syntax error in current_page?() that was prevent matches against URL's with multiple query parameters #1385, #1868 *chris finne/Andrew White*
632
633 * Added localized rescue template when I18n.locale is set (ex: public/404.da.html) #1835 *José Valim*
634
635 * Make the form_for and fields_for helpers support the new Active Record nested update options. #1202 *Eloy Duran*
636
637 <% form_for @person do |person_form| %>
638 ...
639 <% person_form.fields_for :projects do |project_fields| %>
640 <% if project_fields.object.active? %>
641 Name: <%= project_fields.text_field :name %>
642 <% end %>
643 <% end %>
644 <% end %>
645
646
647 * Added grouped_options_for_select helper method for wrapping option tags in optgroups. #977 *Jon Crawford*
648
649 * Implement HTTP Digest authentication. #1230 [Gregg Kellogg, Pratik Naik] Example :
650
651 class DummyDigestController < ActionController::Base
652 USERS = { "lifo" => 'world' }
653
654 before_filter :authenticate
655
656 def index
657 render :text => "Hello Secret"
658 end
659
660 private
661
662 def authenticate
663 authenticate_or_request_with_http_digest("Super Secret") do |username|
664 # Return the user's password
665 USERS[username]
666 end
667 end
668 end
669
670 * Improved i18n support for the number_to_human_size helper. Changes the storage_units translation data; update your translations accordingly. #1634 *Yaroslav Markin*
671 storage_units:
672 # %u is the storage unit, %n is the number (default: 2 MB)
673 format: "%n %u"
674 units:
675 byte:
676 one: "Byte"
677 other: "Bytes"
678 kb: "KB"
679 mb: "MB"
680 gb: "GB"
681 tb: "TB"
682
683 * Added :silence option to BenchmarkHelper#benchmark and turned log_level into a hash parameter and deprecated the old use *DHH*
684
685 * 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*
686
687 * Make ActionController#render(string) work as a shortcut for render :file/:template/:action => string. [#1435] [Pratik Naik] Examples:
688
689 \# Instead of render(:action => 'other_action')
690 render('other_action') # argument has no '/'
691 render(:other_action)
692
693 \# Instead of render(:template => 'controller/action')
694 render('controller/action') # argument must not begin with a '/', but contain a '/'
695
696 \# Instead of render(:file => '/Users/lifo/home.html.erb')
697 render('/Users/lifo/home.html.erb') # argument must begin with a '/'
698
699 * Add :prompt option to date/time select helpers. #561 *Sam Oliver*
700
701 * Fixed that send_file shouldn't set an etag #1578 *Hongli Lai*
702
703 * Allow users to opt out of the spoofing checks in Request#remote_ip. Useful for sites whose traffic regularly triggers false positives. *Darren Boyd*
704
705 * Deprecated formatted_polymorphic_url. *Jeremy Kemper*
706
707 * 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*
708
709 * 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*
710
711 * Dropped formatted_* routes in favor of just passing in :format as an option. This cuts resource routes generation in half #1359 *aaronbatalion*
712
713 * 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*
714
715 * Allow helpers directory to be overridden via ActionController::Base.helpers_dir #1424 *Sam Pohlenz*
716
717 * Remove deprecated ActionController::Base#assign_default_content_type_and_charset
718
719 * Changed the default of ActionView#render to assume partials instead of files when not given an options hash [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
720
721 # Instead of <%= render :partial => "account" %>
722 <%= render "account" %>
723
724 # Instead of <%= render :partial => "account", :locals => { :account => @buyer } %>
725 <%= render "account", :account => @buyer %>
726
727 # @account is an Account instance, so it uses the RecordIdentifier to replace
728 # <%= render :partial => "accounts/account", :locals => { :account => @account } %>
729 <%= render(@account) %>
730
731 # @posts is an array of Post instances, so it uses the RecordIdentifier to replace
732 # <%= render :partial => "posts/post", :collection => @posts %>
733 <%= render(@posts) %>
734
735 * Remove deprecated render_component. Please use the plugin from http://github.com/rails/render_component/tree/master *Pratik Naik*
736
737 * 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*
738
739
740 ## 2.2.2 (November 21st, 2008) ##
741
742 * I18n: translate number_to_human_size. Add storage_units: [Bytes, KB, MB, GB, TB] to your translations. #1448 *Yaroslav Markin*
743
744 * Restore backwards compatible functionality for setting relative_url_root. Include deprecation
745
746 * Switched the CSRF module to use the request content type to decide if the request is forgeable. #1145 *Jeff Cohen*
747
748 * 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*
749
750 map.resources :products, :only => :show do |product|
751 product.resources :images, :except => :destroy
752 end
753
754 * Added render :js for people who want to render inline JavaScript replies without using RJS *David Heinemeier Hansson*
755
756 * Fixed that polymorphic_url should compact given array #1317 *hiroshi*
757
758 * Fixed the sanitize helper to avoid double escaping already properly escaped entities #683 *antonmos/Ryan McGeary*
759
760 * Fixed that FormTagHelper generated illegal html if name contained square brackets #1238 *Vladimir Dobriakov*
761
762 * 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*
763
764 * Simplified the logging format for parameters (don't include controller, action, and format as duplicates) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
765
766 * Remove the logging of the Session ID when the session store is CookieStore *David Heinemeier Hansson*
767
768 * Fixed regex in redirect_to to fully support URI schemes #1247 *Seth Fitzsimmons*
769
770 * Fixed bug with asset timestamping when using relative_url_root #1265 *Joe Goldwasser*
771
772
773 ## 2.2.0 RC1 (October 24th, 2008) ##
774
775 * Fix incorrect closing CDATA delimiter and that HTML::Node.parse would blow up on unclosed CDATA sections *packagethief*
776
777 * Added stale? and fresh_when methods to provide a layer of abstraction above request.fresh? and friends [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
778
779 class ArticlesController < ApplicationController
780 def show_with_respond_to_block
781 @article = Article.find(params[:id])
782
783
784 # If the request sends headers that differs from the options provided to stale?, then
785 # the request is indeed stale and the respond_to block is triggered (and the options
786 # to the stale? call is set on the response).
787 #
788 # If the request headers match, then the request is fresh and the respond_to block is
789 # not triggered. Instead the default render will occur, which will check the last-modified
790 # and etag headers and conclude that it only needs to send a "304 Not Modified" instead
791 # of rendering the template.
792 if stale?(:last_modified => @article.published_at.utc, :etag => @article)
793 respond_to do |wants|
794 # normal response processing
795 end
796 end
797 end
798
799 def show_with_implied_render
800 @article = Article.find(params[:id])
801
802 # Sets the response headers and checks them against the request, if the request is stale
803 # (i.e. no match of either etag or last-modified), then the default render of the template happens.
804 # If the request is fresh, then the default render will return a "304 Not Modified"
805 # instead of rendering the template.
806 fresh_when(:last_modified => @article.published_at.utc, :etag => @article)
807 end
808 end
809
810
811 * Added inline builder yield to atom_feed_helper tags where appropriate [Sam Ruby]. Example:
812
813 entry.summary :type => 'xhtml' do |xhtml|
814 xhtml.p pluralize(order.line_items.count, "line item")
815 xhtml.p "Shipped to #{order.address}"
816 xhtml.p "Paid by #{order.pay_type}"
817 end
818
819 * Make PrototypeHelper#submit_to_remote a wrapper around PrototypeHelper#button_to_remote. *Tarmo Tänav*
820
821 * Set HttpOnly for the cookie session store's cookie. #1046
822
823 * Added FormTagHelper#image_submit_tag confirm option #784 *Alastair Brunton*
824
825 * Fixed FormTagHelper#submit_tag with :disable_with option wouldn't submit the button's value when was clicked #633 *Jose Fernandez*
826
827 * Stopped logging template compiles as it only clogs up the log *David Heinemeier Hansson*
828
829 * Changed the X-Runtime header to report in milliseconds *David Heinemeier Hansson*
830
831 * Changed BenchmarkHelper#benchmark to report in milliseconds *David Heinemeier Hansson*
832
833 * Changed logging format to be millisecond based and skip misleading stats [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Went from:
834
835 Completed in 0.10000 (4 reqs/sec) | Rendering: 0.04000 (40%) | DB: 0.00400 (4%) | 200 OK [http://example.com]
836
837 ...to:
838
839 Completed in 100ms (View: 40, DB: 4) | 200 OK [http://example.com]
840
841 * Add support for shallow nesting of routes. #838 *S. Brent Faulkner*
842
843 Example :
844
845 map.resources :users, :shallow => true do |user|
846 user.resources :posts
847 end
848
849 - GET /users/1/posts (maps to PostsController#index action as usual)
850 named route "user_posts" is added as usual.
851
852 - GET /posts/2 (maps to PostsController#show action as if it were not nested)
853 Additionally, named route "post" is added too.
854
855 * Added button_to_remote helper. #3641 *Donald Piret, Tarmo Tänav*
856
857 * Deprecate render_component. Please use render_component plugin from http://github.com/rails/render_component/tree/master *Pratik Naik*
858
859 * Routes may be restricted to lists of HTTP methods instead of a single method or :any. #407 *Brennan Dunn, Gaius Centus Novus*
860 map.resource :posts, :collection => { :search => [:get, :post] }
861 map.session 'session', :requirements => { :method => [:get, :post, :delete] }
862
863 * Deprecated implicit local assignments when rendering partials *Josh Peek*
864
865 * Introduce current_cycle helper method to return the current value without bumping the cycle. #417 *Ken Collins*
866
867 * Allow polymorphic_url helper to take url options. #880 *Tarmo Tänav*
868
869 * Switched integration test runner to use Rack processor instead of CGI *Josh Peek*
870
871 * Made AbstractRequest.if_modified_sense return nil if the header could not be parsed *Jamis Buck*
872
873 * Added back ActionController::Base.allow_concurrency flag *Josh Peek*
874
875 * 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*
876
877 * Update Prototype to 1.6.0.2 #599 *Patrick Joyce*
878
879 * Conditional GET utility methods. *Jeremy Kemper*
880 response.last_modified = @post.updated_at
881 response.etag = [:admin, @post, current_user]
882
883 if request.fresh?(response)
884 head :not_modified
885 else
886 # render ...
887 end
888
889 * All 2xx requests are considered successful *Josh Peek*
890
891 * 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*
892
893 * Removed config.action_view.cache_template_loading, use config.cache_classes instead *Josh Peek*
894
895 * Get buffer for fragment cache from template's @output_buffer *Josh Peek*
896
897 * 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*
898
899 * Refactor template preloading. New abstractions include Renderable mixins and a refactored Template class *Josh Peek*
900
901 * Changed ActionView::TemplateHandler#render API method signature to render(template, local_assigns = {}) *Josh Peek*
902
903 * 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*
904
905 * Add :recursive option to javascript_include_tag and stylesheet_link_tag to be used along with :all. #480 *Damian Janowski*
906
907 * Allow users to disable the use of the Accept header *Michael Koziarski*
908
909 The accept header is poorly implemented by browsers and causes strange
910 errors when used on public sites where crawlers make requests too. You can use formatted urls (e.g. /people/1.xml) to support API clients in a much simpler way.
911 To disable the header you need to set:
912 config.action_controller.use_accept_header = false
913 * 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*
914
915 * Deprecated TemplateHandler line offset *Josh Peek*
916
917 * Allow caches_action to accept cache store options. #416. [José Valim]. Example:
918
919 caches_action :index, :redirected, :if => Proc.new { |c| !c.request.format.json? }, :expires_in => 1.hour
920
921 * Remove define_javascript_functions, javascript_include_tag and friends are far superior. *Michael Koziarski*
922
923 * Deprecate :use_full_path render option. The supplying the option no longer has an effect *Josh Peek*
924
925 * Add :as option to render a collection of partials with a custom local variable name. #509 *Simon Jefford, Pratik Naik*
926
927 render :partial => 'other_people', :collection => @people, :as => :person
928
929 This will let you access objects of @people as 'person' local variable inside 'other_people' partial template.
930

932
933 * Made ActionView::Base#render_file private *Josh Peek*

936
937 This could cause some erroneous test failures if you were redirecting between controllers
938 in different namespaces and wrote your assertions relative to the root of the application.
939
940 * Remove follow_redirect from controller functional tests.
941
942 If you want to follow redirects you can use integration tests. The functional test version was only useful if you were using redirect_to :id=>...

944
945 * Replaced TemplateFinder abstraction with ViewLoadPaths *Josh Peek*

951 <% end %>
952

957 * Drop ActionController::Base.allow_concurrency flag *Josh Peek*
958
959 * More efficient concat and capture helpers. Remove ActionView::Base.erb_variable. *Jeremy Kemper*

962
963 * Fixed Request#remote_ip to only raise hell if the HTTP_CLIENT_IP and HTTP_X_FORWARDED_FOR doesn't match (not just if they're both present) *Mark Imbriaco, Bradford Folkens*
964
965 * Allow caches_action to accept a layout option *José Valim*
966
967 * Added Rack processor *Ezra Zygmuntowicz, Josh Peek*
968

This makes it possible for JS requests to automatically render action.js.rjs files without an explicit respond_to block *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1075
1076 * Tests for distance_of_time_in_words with TimeWithZone instances. Closes #10914 *Ernesto Jimenez*

1333 config.action_controller.optimise_named_routes = false
1334
1335 * ActionController::Routing::DynamicSegment#interpolation_chunk should call #to_s on all values before calling URI.escape. *Rick Olson*
1336
1337 * Only accept session ids from cookies, prevents session fixation attacks. *bradediger*
1338
1339
1340 ## 2.0.0 Preview Release (September 29th, 2007) Includes duplicates of changes from 1.12.2 - 1.13.3 ##
1341
1342 * Fixed that render template did not honor exempt_from_layout #9698 *pezra*
1343
1344 * Better error messages if you leave out the :secret option for request forgery protection. Closes #9670 *Rick Olson*
1345
1346 * Allow ability to disable request forgery protection, disable it in test mode by default. Closes #9693 *Pratik Naik*
1347
1348 * Avoid calling is_missing on LoadErrors. Closes #7460. *ntalbott*
1349
1350 * Move Railties' Dispatcher to ActionController::Dispatcher, introduce before_ and after_dispatch callbacks, and warm up to non-CGI requests. *Jeremy Kemper*
1351
1352 * The tag helper may bypass escaping. *Jeremy Kemper*
1353
1354 * Cache asset ids. *Jeremy Kemper*
1355
1356 * Optimized named routes respect AbstractRequest.relative_url_root. #9612 *Daniel Morrison, Jeremy Kemper*
1357
1358 * Introduce ActionController::Base.rescue_from to declare exception-handling methods. Cleaner style than the case-heavy rescue_action_in_public. #9449 *Norbert Crombach*
1359
1360 * Rename some RequestForgeryProtection methods. The class method is now #protect_from_forgery, and the default parameter is now 'authenticity_token'. *Rick Olson*
1361
1362 * Merge csrf_killer plugin into rails. Adds RequestForgeryProtection model that verifies session-specific _tokens for non-GET requests. *Rick Olson*
1363
1364 * Secure #sanitize, #strip_tags, and #strip_links helpers against xss attacks. Closes #8877. *Rick Olson, Pratik Naik, Jacques Distler*
1365
1366 This merges and renames the popular white_list helper (along with some css sanitizing from Jacques Distler version of the same plugin).
1367 Also applied updated versions of #strip_tags and #strip_links from #8877.
1368
1369 * Remove use of & logic operator. Closes #8114. *watson*
1370
1371 * Fixed JavaScriptHelper#escape_javascript to also escape closing tags #8023 *Ruy Asan*
1372
1373 * Fixed TextHelper#word_wrap for multiline strings with extra carrier returns #8663 *seth*
1374
1375 * Fixed that setting the :host option in url_for would automatically turn off :only_path (since :host would otherwise not be shown) #9586 *Bounga*
1376
1377 * Added FormHelper#label. #8641, #9850 *jcoglan, Jarkko Laine*
1378
1379 * Added AtomFeedHelper (slightly improved from the atom_feed_helper plugin) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1380
1381 * 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*
1382
1383 * 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*
1384
1385 * Don't warn when a path segment precedes a required segment. Closes #9615. *Nicholas Seckar*
1386
1387 * Fixed CaptureHelper#content_for to work with the optional content parameter instead of just the block #9434 [sandofsky/wildchild].
1388
1389 * Added Mime::Type.register_alias for dealing with different formats using the same mime type [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1390
1391 class PostsController < ApplicationController
1392 before_filter :adjust_format_for_iphone
1393
1394 def index
1395 @posts = Post.find(:all)
1396
1397 respond_to do |format|
1398 format.html # => renders index.html.erb and uses "text/html" as the content type
1399 format.iphone # => renders index.iphone.erb and uses "text/html" as the content type
1400 end
1401 end
1402
1403
1404 private
1405 def adjust_format_for_iphone
1406 if request.env["HTTP_USER_AGENT"] && request.env["HTTP_USER_AGENT"][/iPhone/]
1407 request.format = :iphone
1408 end
1409 end
1410 end
1411
1412 * Added that render :json will automatically call .to_json unless it's being passed a string [David Heinemeier Hansson].
1413
1414 * Autolink behaves well with emails embedded in URLs. #7313 *Jeremy McAnally, Tarmo Tänav*
1415
1416 * Fixed that default layouts did not take the format into account #9564 *Pratik Naik*
1417
1418 * Fixed optimized route segment escaping. #9562 *wildchild, Jeremy Kemper*
1419
1420 * Added block acceptance to JavaScriptHelper#javascript_tag. #7527 *Bob Silva, Tarmo Tänav, rmm5t*
1421
1422 * root_path returns '/' not ''. #9563 *Pratik Naik*
1423
1424 * Fixed that setting request.format should also affect respond_to blocks *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1425
1426 * Add option to force binary mode on tempfile used for fixture_file_upload. #6380 *Jonathan Viney*
1427
1428 * Fixed that resource namespaces wouldn't stick to all nested resources #9399 *pixeltrix*
1429
1430 * Moved ActionController::Macros::AutoComplete into the auto_complete plugin on the official Rails svn. #9512 *Pratik Naik*
1431
1432 * Moved ActionController::Macros::InPlaceEditing into the in_place_editor plugin on the official Rails svn. #9513 *Pratik Naik*
1433
1434 * Removed deprecated form of calling xml_http_request/xhr without the first argument being the http verb *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1435
1436 * Removed deprecated methods [David Heinemeier Hansson]:
1437
1438 - ActionController::Base#keep_flash (use flash.keep instead)
1439 - ActionController::Base#expire_matched_fragments (just call expire_fragment with a regular expression)
1440 - ActionController::Base.template_root/= methods (use ActionController#Base.view_paths/= instead)
1441 - ActionController::Base.cookie (use ActionController#Base.cookies[]= instead)
1442
1443 * Removed the deprecated behavior of appending ".png" to image_tag/image_path calls without an existing extension *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1444
1445 * 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*
1446
1447 * Optimise named route generation when using positional arguments. *Michael Koziarski*
1448
1449 This change delivers significant performance benefits for the most
1450 common usage scenarios for modern rails applications by avoiding the
1451 costly trip through url_for. Initial benchmarks indicate this is
1452 between 6 and 20 times as fast.
1453
1454 * Explicitly require active_record/query_cache before using it. *Jeremy Kemper*
1455
1456 * Fix layout overriding response status. #9476 *lotswholetime*
1457
1458 * Add field_set_tag for generating field_sets, closes #9477. *Damian Janowski*
1459
1460 * Allow additional parameters to be passed to named route helpers when using positional arguments. Closes #8930 *Ian White*
1461
1462 * Make render :partial work with a :collection of Hashes, previously this wasn't possible due to backwards compatibility restrictions. *Pratik Naik*
1463
1464 * request.host works with IPv6 addresses. #9458 *yuya*
1465
1466 * Fix bug where action caching sets the content type to the ActionCachePath object. Closes #9282 *mindforge*
1467
1468 * Find layouts even if they're not in the first view_paths directory. Closes #9258 *caio*
1469
1470 * Major improvement to the documentation for the options / select form helpers. Closes #9038 *Chris Kampmeier, jardeon, wesg*
1471
1472 * Fix number_to_human_size when using different precisions. Closes #7536. *RichardStrand, mpalmer*
1473
1474 * Added partial layouts (see example in action_view/lib/partials.rb) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1475
1476 * Allow you to set custom :conditions on resource routes. *Rick Olson*
1477
1478 * Fixed that file.content_type for uploaded files would include a trailing \r #9053 *Brad Greenlee*
1479
1480 * url_for now accepts a series of symbols representing the namespace of the record *Josh Knowles*
1481
1482 * Make :trailing_slash work with query parameters for url_for. Closes #4004 *nov*
1483
1484 * Make sure missing template exceptions actually say which template they were looking for. Closes #8683 *dasil003*
1485
1486 * Fix errors with around_filters which do not yield, restore 1.1 behaviour with after filters. Closes #8891 *Stefan Kaes*
1487
1488 After filters will *no longer* be run if an around_filter fails to yield, users relying on
1489 this behaviour are advised to put the code in question after a yield statement in an around filter.
1490
1491
1492 * Allow you to delete cookies with options. Closes #3685 *Josh Peek, Chris Wanstrath*
1493
1494 * Allow you to render views with periods in the name. Closes #8076 *Norbert Crombach*
1495
1496 render :partial => 'show.html.erb'
1497
1498 * Improve capture helper documentation. #8796 *Chris Kampmeier*
1499
1500 * 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*
1501
1502 * Allow sweepers to be created solely for expiring after controller actions, not model changes *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1503
1504 * Added assigns method to ActionController::Caching::Sweeper to easily access instance variables on the controller *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1505
1506 * Give the legacy X-POST_DATA_FORMAT header greater precedence during params parsing for backward compatibility. *Jeremy Kemper*
1507
1508 * Fixed that link_to with an href of # when using :method will not allow for click-through without JavaScript #7037 *Steven Bristol, Josh Peek*
1509
1510 * Fixed that radio_button_tag should generate unique ids #3353 *Bob Silva, Rebecca, Josh Peek*
1511
1512 * Fixed that HTTP authentication should work if the header is called REDIRECT_X_HTTP_AUTHORIZATION as well #6754 *Mislav Marohnić*
1513
1514 * Don't mistakenly interpret the request uri as the query string. #8731 *Pratik Naik, Jeremy Kemper*
1515
1516 * 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*
1517
1518 * Tolerate missing content type on multipart file uploads. Fix for Safari 3. *Jeremy Kemper*
1519
1520 * Deprecation: remove pagination. Install the classic_pagination plugin for forward compatibility, or move to the superior will_paginate plugin. #8157 *Josh Peek*
1521
1522 * Action caching is limited to GET requests returning 200 OK status. #3335 *tom@craz8.com, halfbyte, Dan Kubb, Josh Peek*
1523
1524 * Improve Text Helper test coverage. #7274 *Rob Sanheim, Josh Peek*
1525
1526 * Improve helper test coverage. #7208, #7212, #7215, #7233, #7234, #7235, #7236, #7237, #7238, #7241, #7243, #7244 *Rich Collins, Josh Peek*
1527
1528 * Improve UrlRewriter tests. #7207 *Rich Collins*
1529
1530 * 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*
1531
1532 * Assume html format when rendering partials in RJS. #8076 *Rick Olson*
1533
1534 * Don't double-escape url_for in views. #8144 *Rich Collins, Josh Peek*
1535
1536 * Allow JSON-style values for the :with option of observe_field. Closes #8557 *kommen*
1537
1538 * Remove RAILS_ROOT from backtrace paths. #8540 *Tim Pope*
1539
1540 * Routing: map.resource :logo routes to LogosController so the controller may be reused for multiple nestings or namespaces. *Jeremy Kemper*
1541
1542 * render :partial recognizes Active Record associations as Arrays. #8538 *Kamal Fariz Mahyuddin*
1543
1544 * Routing: drop semicolon and comma as route separators. *Jeremy Kemper*
1545
1546 * request.remote_ip understands X-Forwarded-For addresses with nonstandard whitespace. #7386 *moses*
1547
1548 * Don't prepare response when rendering a component. #8493 *jsierles*
1549
1550 * Reduce file stat calls when checking for template changes. #7736 *alex*
1551
1552 * Added custom path cache_page/expire_page parameters in addition to the options hashes [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1553
1554 def index
1555 caches_page(response.body, "/index.html")
1556 end
1557
1558 * Action Caching speedup. #8231 *Stefan Kaes*
1559
1560 * Wordsmith resources documentation. #8484 *marclove*
1561
1562 * Fix syntax error in code example for routing documentation. #8377. *Norbert Crombach*
1563
1564 * 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*
1565
1566 * Add support for assert_select_rjs with :show and :hide. #7780 *dchelimsky*
1567
1568 * Make assert_select's failure messages clearer about what failed. #7779 *dchelimsky*
1569
1570 * Introduce a default respond_to block for custom types. #8174 *Josh Peek*
1571
1572 * auto_complete_field takes a :method option so you can GET or POST. #8120 *zapnap*
1573
1574 * Added option to suppress :size when using :maxlength for FormTagHelper#text_field #3112 *Tim Pope*
1575
1576 * catch possible WSOD when trying to render a missing partial. Closes #8454 *Jonathan del Strother*
1577
1578 * Rewind request body after reading it, if possible. #8438 *s450r1*
1579
1580 * Resource namespaces are inherited by their has_many subresources. #8280 *marclove, Geoff Garside*
1581
1582 * Fix filtered parameter logging with nil parameter values. #8422 *choonkeat*
1583
1584 * 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*
1585
1586 * Document caches_action. #5419 *Jarkko Laine*
1587
1588 * Update to Prototype 1.5.1. *Sam Stephenson*
1589
1590 * Allow routes to be decalred under namespaces [Tobias Lütke]:
1591
1592 map.namespace :admin do |admin|
1593 admin.root :controller => "products"
1594 admin.feed 'feed.xml', :controller => 'products', :action => 'feed', :format => 'xml'
1595 end
1596
1597 * Update to script.aculo.us 1.7.1_beta3. *Thomas Fuchs*
1598
1599 * observe_form always sends the serialized form. #5271 *Manfred Stienstra, normelton@gmail.com*
1600
1601 * Parse url-encoded and multipart requests ourselves instead of delegating to CGI. *Jeremy Kemper*
1602
1603 * select :include_blank option can be set to a string instead of true, which just uses an empty string. #7664 *Wizard*
1604
1605 * Added url_for usage on render :location, which allows for record identification [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1606
1607 render :xml => person, :status => :created, :location => person
1608
1609 ...expands the location to person_url(person).
1610
1611 * 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*
1612
1613 * Add some performance enhancements to ActionView.
1614
1615 * Cache base_paths in @@cached_base_paths
1616 * Cache template extensions in @@cached_template_extension
1617 * Remove unnecessary rescues
1618
1619 * Assume that rendered partials go by the HTML format by default
1620
1621 def my_partial
1622 render :update do |page|
1623 # in this order
1624 # _foo.html.erb
1625 # _foo.erb
1626 # _foo.rhtml
1627 page.replace :foo, :partial => 'foo'
1628 end
1629 end
1630
1631 * Added record identifications to FormHelper#form_for and PrototypeHelper#remote_form_for [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
1632
1633 <% form_for(@post) do |f| %>
1634 ...
1635 <% end %>
1636
1637 This will expand to be the same as:
1638
1639 <% form_for :post, @post, :url => post_path(@post), :html => { :method => :put, :class => "edit_post", :id => "edit_post_45" } do |f| %>
1640 ...
1641 <% end %>
1642
1643 And for new records:
1644
1645 <% form_for(Post.new) do |f| %>
1646 ...
1647 <% end %>
1648
1649 This will expand to be the same as:
1650
1651 <% form_for :post, @post, :url => posts_path, :html => { :class => "new_post", :id => "new_post" } do |f| %>
1652 ...
1653 <% end %>
1654
1655 * Rationalize route path escaping according to RFC 2396 section 3.3. #7544, #8307. *Jeremy Kemper, Chris Roos, begemot, jugend*
1656
1657 * Added record identification with polymorphic routes for ActionController::Base#url_for and ActionView::Base#url_for [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
1658
1659 redirect_to(post) # => redirect_to(posts_url(post)) => Location: http://example.com/posts/1
1660 link_to(post.title, post) # => link_to(post.title, posts_url(post)) => <a href="/posts/1">Hello world</a>
1661
1662 Any method that calls url_for on its parameters will automatically benefit from this.
1663
1664 * Removed deprecated parameters_for_method_reference concept (legacy from before named routes) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1665
1666 * Add ActionController::Routing::Helpers, a module to contain common URL helpers such as polymorphic_url. *Nicholas Seckar*
1667
1668 * Included the HttpAuthentication plugin as part of core (ActionController::HttpAuthentication::Basic) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1669
1670 * Modernize documentation for form helpers. *Jeremy McAnally*
1671
1672 * Add brief introduction to REST to the resources documentation. *fearoffish*
1673
1674 * Fix various documentation typos throughout ActionPack. *Henrik N*
1675
1676 * Enhance documentation and add examples for url_for. *Jeremy McAnally*
1677
1678 * Fix documentation typo in routes. *Norbert Crombach, pam*
1679
1680 * Sweep flash when filter chain is halted. *Caio Chassot <lists@v2studio.com>*
1681
1682 * 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*
1683
1684 * Replace the current block/continuation filter chain handling by an implementation based on a simple loop. #8226 *Stefan Kaes*
1685
1686 * Update UrlWriter to accept :anchor parameter. Closes #6771. *Chris McGrath*
1687
1688 * Added RecordTagHelper for using RecordIdentifier conventions on divs and other container elements [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1689
1690 <% div_for(post) do %> <div id="post_45" class="post">
1691 <%= post.body %> What a wonderful world!
1692 <% end %> </div>
1693
1694 * Added page[record] accessor to JavaScriptGenerator that relies on RecordIdentifier to find the right dom id [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1695
1696 format.js do
1697 # Calls: new Effect.fade('post_45');
1698 render(:update) { |page| page[post].visual_effect(:fade) }
1699 end
1700
1701 * Added RecordIdentifier to enforce view conventions on records for dom ids, classes, and partial paths *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1702
1703 * Added map.namespace to deal with the common situation of admin sections and the like *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1704
1705 Before:
1706
1707 map.resources :products, :path_prefix => "admin", :controller => "admin/products", :collection => { :inventory => :get }, :member => { :duplicate => :post }
1708 map.resources :tags, :name_prefix => 'admin_product_', :path_prefix => "admin/products/:product_id", :controller => "admin/product_tags"
1709 map.resources :images, :name_prefix => 'admin_product_', :path_prefix => "admin/products/:product_id", :controller => "admin/product_images"
1710 map.resources :variants, :name_prefix => 'admin_product_', :path_prefix => "admin/products/:product_id", :controller => "admin/product_variants"
1711
1712 After:
1713
1714 map.namespace(:admin) do |admin|
1715 admin.resources :products,
1716 :collection => { :inventory => :get },
1717 :member => { :duplicate => :post },
1718 :has_many => [ :tags, :images, :variants ]
1719 end
1720
1721 * Added :name_prefix as standard for nested resources [David Heinemeier Hansson]. WARNING: May be backwards incompatible with your app
1722
1723 Before:
1724
1725 map.resources :emails do |emails|
1726 emails.resources :comments, :name_prefix => "email_"
1727 emails.resources :attachments, :name_prefix => "email_"
1728 end
1729
1730 After:
1731
1732 map.resources :emails do |emails|
1733 emails.resources :comments
1734 emails.resources :attachments
1735 end
1736
1737 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.
1738
1739 * Added :has_many and :has_one for declaring plural and singular resources beneath the current *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1740
1741 Before:
1742
1743 map.resources :notes do |notes|
1744 notes.resources :comments
1745 notes.resources :attachments
1746 notes.resource :author
1747 end
1748
1749 After:
1750
1751 map.resources :notes, :has_many => [ :comments, :attachments ], :has_one => :author
1752
1753 * Added that render :xml will try to call to_xml if it can [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Makes these work:
1754
1755 render :xml => post
1756 render :xml => comments
1757
1758 * 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*
1759
1760 render :xml => post.to_xml, :status => :created, :location => post_url(post)
1761
1762 * Ensure that render_text only adds string content to the body of the response *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1763
1764 * Return the string representation from an Xml Builder when rendering a partial. Closes #5044 *Tim Pope*
1765
1766 * Fixed that parameters from XML should also be presented in a hash with indifferent access *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1767
1768 * 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*
1769
1770 * 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*
1771
1772 * Allow layouts with extension of .html.erb. Closes #8032 *Josh Knowles*
1773
1774 * Change default respond_to templates for xml and rjs formats. *Rick Olson*
1775
1776 * Default xml template goes from #{action_name}.rxml => #{action_name}.xml.builder.
1777 * Default rjs template goes from #{action_name}.rjs => #{action_name}.js.rjs.
1778
1779 You can still specify your old templates:
1780
1781 respond_to do |format|
1782 format.xml do
1783 render :action => "#{action_name}.rxml"
1784 end
1785 end
1786
1787 * 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*
1788
1789 * Fix WSOD when template compilation fails *Rick Olson*
1790
1791 * 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*
1792
1793 * Highlight helper highlights one or many terms in a single pass. *Jeremy Kemper*
1794
1795 * 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*
1796
1797 * Added that FormTagHelper#submit_tag will return to its original state if the submit fails and you're using :disable_with *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1798
1799 * Cleaned up, corrected, and mildly expanded ActionPack documentation. Closes #7190 *Jeremy McAnally*
1800
1801 * Small collection of ActionController documentation cleanups. Closes #7319 *Jeremy McAnally*
1802
1803 * Make sure the route expiry hash is constructed by comparing the to_param-ized values of each hash. *Jamis Buck*
1804
1805 * Allow configuration of the default action cache path for #caches_action calls. *Rick Olson*
1806
1807 class ListsController < ApplicationController
1808 caches_action :index, :cache_path => Proc.new { |controller|
1809 controller.params[:user_id] ?
1810 controller.send(:user_lists_url, c.params[:user_id]) :
1811 controller.send(:lists_url) }
1812 end
1813
1814 * Performance: patch cgi/session/pstore to require digest/md5 once rather than per #initialize. #7583 *Stefan Kaes*
1815
1816 * Cookie session store: ensure that new sessions doesn't reuse data from a deleted session in the same request. *Jeremy Kemper*
1817
1818 * Deprecation: verification with :redirect_to => :named_route shouldn't be deprecated. #7525 *Justin French*
1819
1820 * Cookie session store: raise ArgumentError when :session_key is blank. *Jeremy Kemper*
1821
1822 * 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*
1823
1824 * Consistent public/protected/private visibility for chained methods. #7813 *Dan Manges*
1825
1826 * Prefer MIME constants to strings. #7707 *Dan Kubb*
1827
1828 * 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*
1829
1830 \# Add a #dbman attr_reader for CGI::Session and make CGI::Session::CookieStore#generate_digest public so it's easy to generate digests using the cookie store's secret. [Rick Olson]
1831 * Added Request#url that returns the complete URL used for the request *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1832
1833 * Extract dynamic scaffolding into a plugin. #7700 *Josh Peek*
1834
1835 * Added user/password options for url_for to add http authentication in a URL *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1836
1837 * Fixed that FormTagHelper#text_area_tag should disregard :size option if it's not a string *Brendon Davidson*
1838
1839 * 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*
1840
1841 * session_enabled? works with session :off. #6680 *Jonathan del Strother*
1842
1843 * Added :port and :host handling to UrlRewriter (which unified url_for usage, regardless of whether it's called in view or controller) #7616 *alancfrancis*
1844
1845 * Allow send_file/send_data to use a registered mime type as the :type parameter #7620 *jonathan*
1846
1847 * Allow routing requirements on map.resource(s) #7633 [quixoten]. Example:
1848
1849 map.resources :network_interfaces, :requirements => { :id => /^\d+\.\d+\.\d+\.\d+$/ }
1850
1851 * Cookie session store: empty and unchanged sessions don't write a cookie. *Jeremy Kemper*
1852
1853 * Added helper(:all) as a way to include all helpers from app/helpers/**/*.rb in ApplicationController *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1854
1855 * Integration tests: introduce methods for other HTTP methods. #6353 *caboose*
1856
1857 * Routing: better support for escaped values in route segments. #7544 [Chris
1858 Roos]
1859 * 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*
1860
1861 Example config/environment.rb:
1862 # Use an application-wide secret key and the default SHA1 message digest.
1863 config.action_controller.session = { :secret => "can't touch this" }
1864
1865 # Store a secret key per user and employ a stronger message digest.
1866 config.action_controller.session = {
1867 :digest => 'SHA512',
1868 :secret => Proc.new { User.current.secret_key }
1869 }
1870
1871 * 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.
1872
1873 * Added caching option to AssetTagHelper#stylesheet_link_tag and AssetTagHelper#javascript_include_tag [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
1874
1875 stylesheet_link_tag :all, :cache => true # when ActionController::Base.perform_caching is false =>
1876 <link href="/stylesheets/style1.css" media="screen" rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" />
1877 <link href="/stylesheets/styleB.css" media="screen" rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" />
1878 <link href="/stylesheets/styleX2.css" media="screen" rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" />
1879
1880 stylesheet_link_tag :all, :cache => true # when ActionController::Base.perform_caching is true =>
1881 <link href="/stylesheets/all.css" media="screen" rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" />
1882
1883 ...when caching is on, all.css is the concatenation of style1.css, styleB.css, and styleX2.css.
1884 Same deal for JavaScripts.
1885
1886 * 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*
1887
1888 * Added default mime type for CSS (Mime::CSS) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1889
1890 * 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*
1891
1892 * Added X-Runtime to all responses with the request run time *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1893
1894 * Add Mime::Type convenience methods to check the current mime type. *Rick Olson*
1895
1896 request.format.html? # => true if Mime::HTML
1897 request.format.jpg? # => true if Mime::JPG
1898
1899 \# ActionController sample usage:
1900 \# the session will be disabled for non html/ajax requests
1901 session :off, :if => Proc.new { |req| !(req.format.html? || req.format.js?) }
1902
1903 * Performance: patch cgi/session to require digest/md5 once rather than per #create_new_id. *Stefan Kaes*
1904
1905 * Add a :url_based_filename => true option to ActionController::Streaming::send_file, which allows URL-based filenames. *Thomas Fuchs*
1906
1907 * Fix that FormTagHelper#submit_tag using :disable_with should trigger the onsubmit handler of its form if available *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1908
1909 * Fix #render_file so that TemplateError is called with the correct params and you don't get the WSOD. *Rick Olson*
1910
1911 * 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
1912 superclass' view_paths. [Rick Olson]
1913 * Allow Controllers to have multiple view_paths instead of a single template_root. Closes #2754 *John Long*
1914
1915 * Add much-needed html-scanner tests. Fixed CDATA parsing bug. *Rick Olson*
1916
1917 * improve error message for Routing for named routes. Closes #7346 *Rob Sanheim*
1918
1919 * Added enhanced docs to routing assertions. Closes #7359 *Rob Sanheim*
1920
1921 * fix form_for example in ActionController::Resources documentation. Closes #7362 *gnarg*
1922
1923 * 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*
1924
1925 * Added FormBuilder#submit as a delegate for FormTagHelper#submit_tag *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1926
1927 * 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*
1928
1929 * Change the query parser to map empty GET params to "" rather than nil. Closes #5694. *Nicholas Seckar*
1930
1931 * date_select and datetime_select take a :default option. #7052 *Nik Wakelin*
1932 date_select "post", "written_on", :default => 3.days.from_now
1933 date_select "credit_card", "bill_due", :default => { :day => 20 }
1934
1935 * select :multiple => true suffixes the attribute name with [] unless already suffixed. #6977 *nik.kakelin, ben, julik*
1936
1937 * Improve routes documentation. #7095 *zackchandler*
1938
1939 * 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*
1940
1941 * Resource member routes require :id, eliminating the ambiguous overlap with collection routes. #7229 *dkubb*
1942
1943 * Remove deprecated assertions. *Jeremy Kemper*
1944
1945 * Change session restoration to allow namespaced models to be autoloaded. Closes #6348. *Nicholas Seckar*
1946
1947 * Fix doubly appearing parameters due to string and symbol mixups. Closes #2551. *Anthony Eden*
1948
1949 * Fix overly greedy rescues when loading helpers. Fixes #6268. *Nicholas Seckar*
1950
1951 * Fixed NumberHelper#number_with_delimiter to use "." always for splitting the original number, not the delimiter parameter #7389 *ceefour*
1952
1953 * Autolinking recognizes trailing and embedded . , : ; #7354 *Jarkko Laine*
1954
1955 * Make TextHelper::auto_link recognize URLs with colons in path correctly, fixes #7268. *imajes*
1956

1958
1959 * Modernize cookie testing code, and increase coverage (Heckle++) #7101 *Kevin Clark*
1960
1961 * Improve Test Coverage for ActionController::Routing::Route#matches_controller_and_action? (Heckle++) #7115 *Kevin Clark*
1962
1963 * Heckling ActionController::Resources::Resource revealed that set_prefixes didn't break when :name_prefix was munged. #7081 *Kevin Clark*
1964
1965 * Fix #distance_of_time_in_words to report accurately against the Duration class. #7114 *eventualbuddha*
1966
1967 * Refactor #form_tag to allow easy extending. *Rick Olson*
1968
1969 * Update to Prototype 1.5.0. *Sam Stephenson*
1970
1971 * RecordInvalid, RecordNotSaved => 422 Unprocessable Entity, StaleObjectError => 409 Conflict. #7097 *dkubb*

1973 * Allow fields_for to be nested inside form_for, so that the name and id get properly constructed *Jamis Buck*
1974
1975 * Allow inGroupsOf and eachSlice to be called through rjs. #7046 *Cody Fauser*

1978
1979 * Recognize the .txt extension as Mime::TEXT *Rick Olson*
1980
1981 * Fix parsing of array[] CGI parameters so extra empty values aren't included. #6252 *Nicholas Seckar, aiwilliams, brentrowland*
1982
1983 * link_to_unless_current works with full URLs as well as paths. #6891 *Jarkko Laine, Manfred Stienstra, idrifter*
1984
1985 * Lookup the mime type for #auto_discovery_link_tag in the Mime::Type class. Closes #6941 *Josh Peek*

1989 * Fix no method error with error_messages_on. Closes #6935 *nik.wakelin Koz*
1990
1991 * Slight doc tweak to the ActionView::Helpers::PrototypeHelper#replace docs. Closes #6922 *Steven Bristol*

2001 * Make sure html_document is reset between integration test requests. *ctm*
2002
2003 * 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*
2004
2005 * Routing uses URI escaping for path components and CGI escaping for query parameters. *darix, Jeremy Kemper*
2006
2007 * 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*
2008
2009 * Singleton resources: POST /singleton => create, GET /singleton/new => new. *Jeremy Kemper*
2010
2011 * Use 400 Bad Request status for unrescued ActiveRecord::RecordInvalid exceptions. *Jeremy Kemper*
2012
2013 * Silence log_error deprecation warnings from inspecting deprecated instance variables. *Nate Wiger*

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

2163
2164 * Fix double-escaped entities, such as &amp;amp;, &amp;#123;, etc. *Rick Olson*
2165
2166 * Fix deprecation warnings when rendering the template error template. *Nicholas Seckar*
2167
2168 * Fix routing to correctly determine when generation fails. Closes #6300. [psross].
2169
2170 * Fix broken assert_generates when extra keys are being checked. *Jamis Buck*
2171
2172 * Replace KCODE checks with String#chars for truncate. Closes #6385 *Manfred Stienstra*
2173
2174 * 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.*
2175
2176 * Use String#chars in TextHelper::excerpt. Closes #6386 *Manfred Stienstra*
2177
2178 * Install named routes into ActionView::Base instead of proxying them to the view via helper_method. Closes #5932. *Nicholas Seckar*
2179

2184 * Fix filter skipping in controller subclasses. #5949, #6297, #6299 *Martin Emde*
2185
2186 * 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*
2187
2188 * Rename test assertion to prevent shadowing. Closes #6306. *psross*
2189
2190 * Fixed that NumberHelper#number_to_delimiter should respect precision of higher than two digits #6231 *Philip Hallstrom*
2191
2192 * Fixed that FormHelper#radio_button didn't respect an :id being passed in #6266 *evansj*
2193
2194 * Added an html_options hash parameter to javascript_tag() and update_page_tag() helpers #6311 [tzaharia]. Example:
2195
2196 update_page_tag :defer => 'true' { |page| ... }
2197
2198 Gives:
2199
2200 <script defer="true" type="text/javascript">...</script>
2201
2202 Which is needed for dealing with the IE6 DOM when it's not yet fully loaded.
2203
2204 * Fixed that rescue template path shouldn't be hardcoded, then it's easier to hook in your own #6295 *Mike Naberezny*
2205
2206 * Fixed escaping of backslashes in JavaScriptHelper#escape_javascript #6302 *sven@c3d2.de*
2207
2208 * Fixed that some 500 rescues would cause 500's themselves because the response had not yet been generated #6329 *cmselmer*
2209
2210 * respond_to :html doesn't assume .rhtml. #6281 *Hampton Catlin*
2211
2212 * Fixed some deprecation warnings in ActionPack *Rick Olson*
2213
2214 * assert_select_rjs decodes escaped unicode chars since the Javascript generators encode them. #6240 *japgolly*
2215
2216 * Deprecation: @cookies, @headers, @request, @response will be removed after 1.2. Use the corresponding method instead. *Jeremy Kemper*
2217
2218 * 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:
2219
2220 head :status => 404 # expands to "404 Not Found"
2221 head :status => :not_found # expands to "404 Not Found"
2222 head :status => :created # expands to "201 Created"
2223
2224 * Add head(options = {}) for responses that have no body. [Jamis Buck]. Examples:
2225
2226 head :status => 404 # return an empty response with a 404 status
2227 head :location => person_path(@person), :status => 201
2228
2229 * Fix bug that kept any before_filter except the first one from being able to halt the before_filter chain. *Rick Olson*
2230
2231 * strip_links is case-insensitive. #6285 *tagoh, Bob Silva*
2232
2233 * Clear the cache of possible controllers whenever Routes are reloaded. *Nicholas Seckar*
2234
2235 * Filters overhaul including meantime filter support using around filters + blocks. #5949 *Martin Emde, Roman Le Negrate, Stefan Kaes, Jeremy Kemper*
2236
2237 * Update RJS render tests. *sam*
2238
2239 * Update CGI process to allow sessions to contain namespaced models. Closes #4638. *dfelstead@site5.com*
2240
2241 * Fix routing to respect user provided requirements and defaults when assigning default routing options (such as :action => 'index'). Closes #5950. *Nicholas Seckar*
2242
2243 * Rescue Errno::ECONNRESET to handle an unexpectedly closed socket connection. Improves SCGI reliability. #3368, #6226 *sdsykes, fhanshaw@vesaria.com*
2244
2245 * Added that respond_to blocks will automatically set the content type to be the same as is requested [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
2246
2247 respond_to do |format|
2248 format.html { render :text => "I'm being sent as text/html" }
2249 format.rss { render :text => "I'm being sent as application/rss+xml" }
2250 format.atom { render :text => "I'm being sent as application/xml", :content_type => Mime::XML }
2251 end
2252
2253 * Added utf-8 as the default charset for all renders. You can change this default using ActionController::Base.default_charset=(encoding) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2254
2255 * Added proper getters and setters for content type and charset [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example of what we used to do:
2256
2257 response.headers["Content-Type"] = "application/atom+xml; charset=utf-8"
2258
2259 ...now:
2260
2261 response.content_type = Mime::ATOM
2262 response.charset = "utf-8"
2263
2264 * Updated prototype.js to 1.5.0_rc1 with latest fixes. *Rick Olson*
2265
2266 - XPATH support
2267 - Make Form.getElements() return elements in the correct order
2268 - fix broken Form.serialize return
2269
2270 * Declare file extensions exempt from layouts. #6219 *brandon*
2271 Example: ActionController::Base.exempt_from_layout 'rpdf'
2272
2273 * Add chained replace/update support for assert_select_rjs *Rick Olson*
2274
2275 Given RJS like...
2276
2277 page['test1'].replace "<div id=\"1\">foo</div>"
2278 page['test2'].replace_html "<div id=\"2\">foo</div>"
2279
2280 Test it with...
2281
2282 assert_select_rjs :chained_replace
2283 assert_select_rjs :chained_replace, "test1"
2284
2285 assert_select_rjs :chained_replace_html
2286 assert_select_rjs :chained_replace_html, "test2"
2287
2288 * Load helpers in alphabetical order for consistency. Resolve cyclic javascript_helper dependency. #6132, #6178 *choonkeat@gmail.com*
2289
2290 * Skip params with empty names, such as the &=Save query string from <input type="submit"/>. #2569 *Manfred Stienstra, raphinou@yahoo.com*
2291
2292 * Fix assert_tag so that :content => "foo" does not match substrings, but only exact strings. Use :content => /foo/ to match substrings. #2799 *Eric Hodel*
2293
2294 * Add descriptive messages to the exceptions thrown by cgi_methods. #6091, #6103 *Nicholas Seckar, Bob Silva*
2295
2296 * Update JavaScriptGenerator#show/hide/toggle/remove to new Prototype syntax for multiple ids, #6068 *petermichaux@gmail.com*
2297
2298 * Update UrlWriter to support :only_path. *Nicholas Seckar, Dave Thomas*
2299
2300 * 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:
2301
2302 link_to("Hider", nil, :class => "hider_link") { |p| p[:something].hide }
2303
2304 ...can be written like this:
2305
2306 link_to("Hider", :class => "hider_link") { |p| p[:something].hide }
2307
2308 * Update to script.aculo.us 1.6.3 *Thomas Fuchs*
2309
2310 * Update to Prototype 1.5.0_rc1 *sam*
2311
2312 * Added access to nested attributes in RJS #4548 [richcollins@gmail.com]. Examples:
2313
2314 page['foo']['style'] # => $('foo').style;
2315 page['foo']['style']['color'] # => $('blank_slate').style.color;
2316 page['foo']['style']['color'] = 'red' # => $('blank_slate').style.color = 'red';
2317 page['foo']['style'].color = 'red' # => $('blank_slate').style.color = 'red';
2318
2319 * Fixed that AssetTagHelper#image_tag and others using compute_public_path should not modify the incoming source argument (closes #5102) *eule@space.ch*
2320
2321 * Deprecated the auto-appending of .png to AssetTagHelper#image_tag calls that doesn't have an extension *David Heinemeier Hansson*

2326
2327 * Fixed TextHelper#pluralize to handle 1 as a string #5909 *rails@bencurtis.com*
2328
2329 * Improved resolution of DateHelper#distance_of_time_in_words for better precision #5994 *Bob Silva*
2330
2331 * 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*
2332
2333 * Integration tests: thoroughly test ActionController::Integration::Session. #6022 *Kevin Clark*
2334 (tests skipped unless you `gem install mocha`)
2335
2336 * Added deprecation language for pagination which will become a plugin by Rails 2.0 *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2337
2338 * Added deprecation language for in_place_editor and auto_complete_field that both pieces will become plugins by Rails 2.0 *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2339
2340 * Deprecated all of ActionController::Dependencies. All dependency loading is now handled from Active Support *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2341
2342 * Added assert_select* for CSS selector-based testing (deprecates assert_tag) #5936 *assaf.arkin@gmail.com*
2343
2344 * radio_button_tag generates unique id attributes. #3353 *Bob Silva, somekool@gmail.com*

2347
2348 * Cleanup assert_tag :children counting. #2181 *jamie@bravenet.com*
2349
2350 * button_to accepts :method so you can PUT and DELETE with it. #6005 *Dan Webb*
2351
2352 * Update sanitize text helper to strip plaintext tags, and <img src="javascript:bang">. *Rick Olson*
2353
2354 * Update routing documentation. Closes #6017 *Nathan Witmer*
2355
2356 * Add routing tests to assert that RoutingError is raised when conditions aren't met. Closes #6016 *Nathan Witmer*
2357
2358 * Deprecation: update docs. #5998 *Jakob Skjerning, Kevin Clark*
2359
2360 * Make auto_link parse a greater subset of valid url formats. *Jamis Buck*
2361
2362 * 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*
2363
2364 * Tighten rescue clauses. #5985 *james@grayproductions.net*
2365
2366 * Fix send_data documentation typo. #5982 *brad@madriska.com*
2367
2368 * Switch to using FormEncodedPairParser for parsing request parameters. *Nicholas Seckar, David Heinemeier Hansson*
2369
2370 * 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*
2371
2372 * Deprecation: test deprecated instance vars in partials. *Jeremy Kemper*
2373
2374 * Add UrlWriter to allow writing urls from Mailers and scripts. *Nicholas Seckar*
2375
2376 * Clean up and run the Active Record integration tests by default. #5854 *Kevin Clark, Jeremy Kemper*
2377
2378 * Correct example in cookies docs. #5832 *jessemerriman@warpmail.net*
2379
2380 * Updated to script.aculo.us 1.6.2 *Thomas Fuchs*
2381
2382 * Relax Routing's anchor pattern warning; it was preventing use of [^/] inside restrictions. *Nicholas Seckar*
2383
2384 * Add controller_paths variable to Routing. *Nicholas Seckar*
2385
2386 * Fix assert_redirected_to issue with named routes for module controllers. *Rick Olson*
2387
2388 * Tweak RoutingError message to show option diffs, not just missing named route significant keys. *Rick Olson*
2389
2390 * Invoke method_missing directly on hidden actions. Closes #3030. *Nicholas Seckar*
2391
2392 * Require Tempfile explicitly for TestUploadedFile due to changes in class auto loading. *Rick Olson*
2393
2394 * Add RoutingError exception when RouteSet fails to generate a path from a Named Route. *Rick Olson*
2395
2396 * Replace Reloadable with Reloadable::Deprecated. *Nicholas Seckar*
2397
2398 * Deprecation: check whether instance variables have been monkeyed with before assigning them to deprecation proxies. Raises a RuntimeError if so. *Jeremy Kemper*
2399
2400 * Add support for the param_name parameter to the auto_complete_field helper. #5026 *david.a.williams@gmail.com*
2401
2402 * 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*
2403
2404 * Make Routing noisy when an anchor regexp is assigned to a segment. #5674 *François Beausoleil*
2405
2406 * 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*
2407
2408 * Short documentation to mention use of Mime::Type.register. #5710 *choonkeat@gmail.com*
2409
2410 * Make controller_path available as an instance method. #5724 *jmckible@gmail.com*
2411
2412 * Update query parser to support adjacent hashes. *Nicholas Seckar*
2413
2414 * 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.*
2415
2416 * Restrict Request Method hacking with ?_method to POST requests. *Rick Olson*
2417
2418 * Fix bug when passing multiple options to SimplyRestful, like :new => { :preview => :get, :draft => :get }. *Rick Olson, Josh Susser, Lars Pind*
2419
2420 * Dup the options passed to map.resources so that multiple resources get the same options. *Rick Olson*
2421
2422 * Fixed the new_#{resource}_url route and added named route tests for Simply Restful. *Rick Olson*
2423
2424 * Added map.resources from the Simply Restful plugin [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples (the API has changed to use plurals!):
2425
2426 map.resources :messages
2427 map.resources :messages, :comments
2428 map.resources :messages, :new => { :preview => :post }
2429
2430 * Fixed that integration simulation of XHRs should set Accept header as well *Edward Frederick*
2431
2432 * TestRequest#reset_session should restore a TestSession, not a hash *Michael Koziarski*
2433
2434 * Don't search a load-path of '.' for controller files *Jamis Buck*
2435
2436 * Update integration.rb to require test_process explicitly instead of via Dependencies. *Nicholas Seckar*
2437
2438 * Fixed that you can still access the flash after the flash has been reset in reset_session. Closes #5584 *lmarlow*
2439
2440 * Allow form_for and fields_for to work with indexed form inputs. *Jeremy Kemper, Matt Lyon*
2441
2442 <% form_for 'post[]', @post do |f| -%>
2443 <% end -%>
2444
2445 * Remove leak in development mode by replacing define_method with module_eval. *Nicholas Seckar*
2446
2447 * Provide support for decimal columns to form helpers. Closes #5672. *Dave Thomas*
2448
2449 * Update documentation for erb trim syntax. #5651 *matt@mattmargolis.net*

2454
2455 * Update render :partial documentation. #5646 *matt@mattmargolis.net*
2456

2458
2459 * Added exception handling of missing layouts #5373 *chris@ozmm.org*
2460
2461 * Fixed that real files and symlinks should be treated the same when compiling templates #5438 *zachary@panandscan.com*
2462
2463 * Fixed that the flash should be reset when reset_session is called #5584 *Shugo Maeda*
2464
2465 * Added special case for "1 Byte" in NumberHelper#number_to_human_size #5593 *murpyh@rubychan.de*
2466
2467 * 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*
2468
2469 * Add route_name_path method to generate only the path for a named routes. For example, map.person will add person_path. *Nicholas Seckar*
2470
2471 * Avoid naming collision among compiled view methods. *Jeremy Kemper*
2472
2473 * Fix CGI extensions when they expect string but get nil in Windows. Closes #5276 *Mislav Marohnić*
2474
2475 * Determine the correct template_root for deeply nested components. #2841 *s.brink@web.de*
2476
2477 * Fix that routes with *path segments in the recall can generate URLs. *Rick Olson*
2478
2479 * Fix strip_links so that it doesn't hang on multiline <acronym> tags *Jamis Buck*
2480
2481 * Remove problematic control chars in rescue template. #5316 *Stefan Kaes*
2482
2483 * Make sure passed routing options are not mutated by routing code. #5314 *Blair Zajac*
2484
2485 * Make sure changing the controller from foo/bar to bing/bang does not change relative to foo. *Jamis Buck*
2486
2487 * Escape the path before routing recognition. #3671
2488
2489 * Make sure :id and friends are unescaped properly. #5275 *me@julik.nl*
2490
2491 * Fix documentation for with_routing to reflect new reality. #5281 *rramdas@gmail.com*
2492
2493 * 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*
2494
2495 * Added Mime::TEXT (text/plain) and Mime::ICS (text/calendar) as new default types *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2496
2497 * Added Mime::Type.register(string, symbol, synonyms = []) for adding new custom mime types [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example: Mime::Type.register("image/gif", :gif)
2498
2499 * Added support for Mime objects in render :content_type option [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example: render :text => some_atom, :content_type => Mime::ATOM
2500
2501 * Add :status option to send_data and send_file. Defaults to '200 OK'. #5243 *Manfred Stienstra <m.stienstra@fngtps.com>*
2502
2503 * 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*
2504
2505 map.connect '/foo/:id', :controller => '...', :action => '...'
2506 map.connect '/foo/:id.:format', :controller => '...', :action => '...'
2507 map.connect '/foo/:id', ..., :conditions => { :method => :get }
2508
2509 * Cope with missing content type and length headers. Parse parameters from multipart and urlencoded request bodies only. *Jeremy Kemper*
2510
2511 * Accept multipart PUT parameters. #5235 *guy.naor@famundo.com*
2512
2513 * 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:
2514
2515 class WeblogController < ActionController::Base
2516 def index
2517 @posts = Post.find :all
2518
2519 respond_to do |format|
2520 format.html
2521 format.xml { render :xml => @posts.to_xml }
2522 format.rss { render :action => "feed.rxml" }
2523 end
2524 end
2525 end
2526
2527 \# returns HTML when requested by a browser, since the browser
2528 \# has the HTML mimetype at the top of its priority list
2529 Accept: text/html
2530 GET /weblog
2531
2532 \# returns the XML
2533 Accept: application/xml
2534 GET /weblog
2535
2536 \# returns the HTML
2537 Accept: application/xml
2538 GET /weblog.html
2539
2540 \# returns the XML
2541 Accept: text/html
2542 GET /weblog.xml
2543

2546 * 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*
2547
2548 * 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*

2615
2616 * Modify routing so that you can say :require => { :method => :post } for a route, and the route will never be selected unless the request method is POST. Only works for route recognition, not for route generation. *Jamis Buck*

2618 * Added :add_headers option to verify which merges a hash of name/value pairs into the response's headers hash if the prerequisites cannot be satisfied. *Sam Stephenson*
