7 * You can provide a namespace for your form to ensure uniqueness of id attributes on form elements.
8 The namespace attribute will be prefixed with underscore on the generate HTML id. *Vasiliy Ermolovich*
9
10 Example:
11
12 <%= form_for(@offer, :namespace => 'namespace') do |f| %>
13 <%= f.label :version, 'Version' %>:
14 <%= f.text_field :version %>
15 <% end %>

3a1d519 @lest deprecation warning, changelog entry
lest authored
17 * Refactor ActionDispatch::ShowExceptions. Controller is responsible for choice to show exceptions. *Sergey Nartimov*
18
19 It's possible to override +show_detailed_exceptions?+ in controllers to specify which requests should provide debugging information on errors.
20
281272a @jonleighton Convert CHANGELOGs to Markdown format.
jonleighton authored
21 * Responders now return 204 No Content for API requests without a response body (as in the new scaffold) *José Valim*
22
23 * 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*
24
25 * Limit the number of options for select_year to 1000.
26
27 Pass the :max_years_allowed option to set your own limit.
28
29 *Libo Cannici*
30
31 * Passing formats or handlers to render :template and friends is deprecated. For example: *Nick Sutterer & José Valim*
32
33 render :template => "foo.html.erb"
34
35 Instead, you can provide :handlers and :formats directly as option:
36 render :template => "foo", :formats => [:html, :js], :handlers => :erb
37
38 * Changed log level of warning for missing CSRF token from :debug to :warn. *Mike Dillon*
39
40 * 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*
41
42 So instead of having to do this:
43
44 @items.each do |item|
45 content_tag_for(:li, item) do
46 Title: <%= item.title %>
47 end
48 end
49
50 You can now do this:
51
52 content_tag_for(:li, @items) do |item|
53 Title: <%= item.title %>
54 end
55
56 * send_file now guess the mime type *Esad Hajdarevic*
57
58 * Mime type entries for PDF, ZIP and other formats were added *Esad Hajdarevic*
59
60 * Generate hidden input before select with :multiple option set to true.
61 This is useful when you rely on the fact that when no options is set,
62 the state of select will be sent to rails application. Without hidden field
63 nothing is sent according to HTML spec *Bogdan Gusiev*
64
65 * Refactor ActionController::TestCase cookies *Andrew White*
66
67 Assigning cookies for test cases should now use cookies[], e.g:
68
69 cookies[:email] = 'user@example.com'
70 get :index
71 assert_equal 'user@example.com', cookies[:email]
72
73 To clear the cookies, use clear, e.g:
74
75 cookies.clear
76 get :index
77 assert_nil cookies[:email]
78
79 We now no longer write out HTTP_COOKIE and the cookie jar is
80 persistent between requests so if you need to manipulate the environment
81 for your test you need to do it before the cookie jar is created.

e8d57f3 @lest _html translation should escape interpolated arguments
lest authored
92 * Fix XSS security vulnerability in the `translate` helper method. When using interpolation
93 in combination with HTML-safe translations, the interpolated input would not get HTML
94 escaped. *GH 3664*
95
96 Before:
97
98 translate('foo_html', :something => '<script>') # => "...<script>..."
99
100 After:
101
102 translate('foo_html', :something => '<script>') # => "...&lt;script&gt;..."

fc98811 @jonleighton Implement a workaround for a bug in ruby-1.9.3p0.
jonleighton authored
117 * Implement a workaround for a bug in ruby-1.9.3p0 where an error would be raised
118 while attempting to convert a template from one encoding to another.
119
120 Please see http://redmine.ruby-lang.org/issues/5564 for details of the bug.
121
122 The workaround is to load all conversions into memory ahead of time, and will
123 only happen if the ruby version is *exactly* 1.9.3p0. The hope is obviously that
124 the underlying problem will be resolved in the next patchlevel release of
125 1.9.3.

131 ## Rails 3.1.1 (unreleased) ##
132
133 * javascript_path and stylesheet_path now refer to /assets if asset pipelining
134 is on. [Santiago Pastorino]
135 * button_to support form option. Now you're able to pass for example
136 'data-type' => 'json'. [ihower]
137 * image_path and image_tag should use /assets if asset pipelining is turned
138 on. Closes #3126 [Santiago Pastorino and christos]
139 * Avoid use of existing precompiled assets during rake assets:precompile run.
140 Closes #3119 [Guillermo Iguaran]
141 * Copy assets to nondigested filenames too *Santiago Pastorino*
142
143 * Give precedence to `config.digest = false` over the existence of
144 manifest.yml asset digests [christos]
145 * escape options for the stylesheet_link_tag method *Alexey Vakhov*
146
147 * Re-launch assets:precompile task using (Rake.)ruby instead of Kernel.exec so
148 it works on Windows [cablegram]
149 * env var passed to process shouldn't be modified in process method. [Santiago
150 Pastorino]
151 * `rake assets:precompile` loads the application but does not initialize
152 it.
153 To the app developer, this means configuration add in
154 config/initializers/* will not be executed.
155 Plugins developers need to special case their initializers that are
156 meant to be run in the assets group by adding :group => :assets. *José Valim*
157
158 * Sprockets uses config.assets.prefix for asset_path *asee*
159
160 * FileStore key_file_path properly limit filenames to 255 characters. *phuibonhoa*
161
162 * Fix Hash#to_query edge case with html_safe strings. *brainopia*
163
164 * Allow asset tag helper methods to accept :digest => false option in order to completely avoid the digest generation.
165 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]
166 * Don't mount Sprockets server at config.assets.prefix if config.assets.compile is false. *Mark J. Titorenko*
167
168 * Set relative url root in assets when controller isn't available for Sprockets (eg. Sass files using asset_path). Fixes #2435 *Guillermo Iguaran*
169
170 * Fix basic auth credential generation to not make newlines. GH #2882
171
172 * Fixed the behavior of asset pipeline when config.assets.digest and config.assets.compile are false and requested asset isn't precompiled.
173 Before the requested asset were compiled anyway ignoring that the config.assets.compile flag is false. *Guillermo Iguaran*
174
175 * CookieJar is now Enumerable. Fixes #2795
176
177 * Fixed AssetNotPrecompiled error raised when rake assets:precompile is compiling certain .erb files. See GH #2763 #2765 #2805 *Guillermo Iguaran*
178
179 * Manifest is correctly placed in assets path when default assets prefix is changed. Fixes #2776 *Guillermo Iguaran*
180
181 * Fixed stylesheet_link_tag and javascript_include_tag to respect additional options passed by the users when debug is on. *Guillermo Iguaran*
182
183
184 ## Rails 3.1.0 (August 30, 2011) ##
185
186 * Param values are `paramified` in controller tests. *David Chelimsky*
187
188 * 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*
189
190 * The submit form helper does not generate an id "object_name_id" anymore. *fbrusatti*
191
192 * Make sure respond_with with :js tries to render a template in all cases *José Valim*
193
194 * json_escape will now return a SafeBuffer string if it receives SafeBuffer string *tenderlove*
195
196 * Make sure escape_js returns SafeBuffer string if it receives SafeBuffer string *Prem Sichanugrist*
197
198 * Fix escape_js to work correctly with the new SafeBuffer restriction *Paul Gallagher*
199
200 * Brought back alternative convention for namespaced models in i18n *thoefer*
201
202 Now the key can be either "namespace.model" or "namespace/model" until further deprecation.
203
204 * It is prohibited to perform a in-place SafeBuffer mutation *tenderlove*
205
206 The old behavior of SafeBuffer allowed you to mutate string in place via
207 method like `sub!`. These methods can add unsafe strings to a safe buffer,
208 and the safe buffer will continue to be marked as safe.
209
210 An example problem would be something like this:
211
212 <%= link_to('hello world', @user).sub!(/hello/, params[:xss]) %>
213
214 In the above example, an untrusted string (`params[:xss]`) is added to the
215 safe buffer returned by `link_to`, and the untrusted content is successfully
216 sent to the client without being escaped. To prevent this from happening
217 `sub!` and other similar methods will now raise an exception when they are called on a safe buffer.
218
219 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:
220
221 <%= link_to('hello world', @user).sub(/hello/, params[:xss]) %>
222
223 The new versions will now ensure that *all* strings returned by these methods on safe buffers are marked unsafe.
224
225 You can read more about this change in http://groups.google.com/group/rubyonrails-security/browse_thread/thread/2e516e7acc96c4fb
226
227 * Warn if we cannot verify CSRF token authenticity *José Valim*
228
229 * Allow AM/PM format in datetime selectors *Aditya Sanghi*
230
231 * Only show dump of regular env methods on exception screen (not all the rack crap) *DHH*
232
233 * auto_link has been removed with no replacement. If you still use auto_link
234 please install the rails_autolink gem:
235 http://github.com/tenderlove/rails_autolink
236
237 *tenderlove*
238
239 * Added streaming support, you can enable it with: *José Valim*
240
241 class PostsController < ActionController::Base
242 stream :only => :index
243 end
244
245 Please read the docs at `ActionController::Streaming` for more information.
246
247 * Added `ActionDispatch::Request.ignore_accept_header` to ignore accept headers and only consider the format given as parameter *José Valim*
248
249 * Created `ActionView::Renderer` and specified an API for `ActionView::Context`, check those objects for more information *José Valim*
250
251 * 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*
252
253 This can be customized by setting `ActionController::Base.wrap_parameters` in `config/initializer/wrap_parameters.rb`
254
255 * RJS has been extracted out to a gem. *fxn*
256
257 * Implicit actions named not_implemented can be rendered. *Santiago Pastorino*
258
259 * Wildcard route will always match the optional format segment by default. *Prem Sichanugrist*
260
261 For example if you have this route:
262
263 match '*pages' => 'pages#show'
264
265 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:
266
267 match '*pages' => 'pages#show', :format => false
268
269 * Added Base.http_basic_authenticate_with to do simple http basic authentication with a single class method call *DHH*
270
271 class PostsController < ApplicationController
272 USER_NAME, PASSWORD = "dhh", "secret"
273
274 before_filter :authenticate, :except => [ :index ]
275
276 def index
277 render :text => "Everyone can see me!"
278 end
279
280 def edit
281 render :text => "I'm only accessible if you know the password"
282 end
283
284 private
285 def authenticate
286 authenticate_or_request_with_http_basic do |user_name, password|
287 user_name == USER_NAME && password == PASSWORD
288 end
289 end
290 end
291
292 ..can now be written as
293
294 class PostsController < ApplicationController
295 http_basic_authenticate_with :name => "dhh", :password => "secret", :except => :index
296
297 def index
298 render :text => "Everyone can see me!"
299 end
300
301 def edit
302 render :text => "I'm only accessible if you know the password"
303 end
304 end
305
306 * 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*
307
308 * Allow FormHelper#form_for to specify the :method as a direct option instead of through the :html hash *DHH*
309
310 form_for(@post, remote: true, method: :delete) instead of form_for(@post, remote: true, html: { method: :delete })
311
312 * 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*
313
314 * 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*
315
316 * URL parameters which return false for to_param now appear in the query string (previously they were removed) *Andrew White*
317
318 * URL parameters which return nil for to_param are now removed from the query string *Andrew White*
319
320 * ActionDispatch::MiddlewareStack now uses composition over inheritance. It is
321 no longer an array which means there may be methods missing that were not tested.
322 * Add an :authenticity_token option to form_tag for custom handling or to omit the token (pass :authenticity_token => false). *Jakub Kuźma, Igor Wiedler*
323
324 * HTML5 button_tag helper. *Rizwan Reza*
325
326 * Template lookup now searches further up in the inheritance chain. *Artemave*
327
328 * Brought back config.action_view.cache_template_loading, which allows to decide whether templates should be cached or not. *Piotr Sarnacki*
329
330 * url_for and named url helpers now accept :subdomain and :domain as options, *Josh Kalderimis*
331
332 * 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*
333
334 * 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*
335
336 * Added a convenience idiom to generate HTML5 data-* attributes in tag helpers from a :data hash of options:
337
338 tag("div", :data => {:name => 'Stephen', :city_state => %w(Chicago IL)})
339 # => <div data-name="Stephen" data-city-state="[&quot;Chicago&quot;,&quot;IL&quot;]" />
340
341 Keys are dasherized. Values are JSON-encoded, except for strings and symbols. *Stephen Celis*
342
343 * Deprecate old template handler API. The new API simply requires a template handler to respond to call. *José Valim*
344
345 * :rhtml and :rxml were finally removed as template handlers. *José Valim*
346
347 * Moved etag responsibility from ActionDispatch::Response to the middleware stack. *José Valim*
348
349 * 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*
350
351 * file_field automatically adds :multipart => true to the enclosing form. *Santiago Pastorino*
352
353 * Renames csrf_meta_tag -> csrf_meta_tags, and aliases csrf_meta_tag for backwards compatibility. *fxn*
354
355 * 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*
356
357
358 ## Rails 3.0.7 (April 18, 2011) ##
359
360 * No changes.
361
362
363 * Rails 3.0.6 (April 5, 2011)
364
365 * Fixed XSS vulnerability in `auto_link`. `auto_link` no longer marks input as
366 html safe. Please make sure that calls to auto_link() are wrapped in a
367 sanitize(), or a raw() depending on the type of input passed to auto_link().
368 For example:
369
370 <%= sanitize(auto_link(some_user_input)) %>
371
372 Thanks to Torben Schulz for reporting this. The fix can be found here:
373 61ee3449674c591747db95f9b3472c5c3bd9e84d
374
375 * 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*
376
377 * Fixes an issue with number_to_human when converting values which are less than 1 but greater than -1 *Josh Kalderimis*
378
379 * 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*
380
381 * URL parameters which return nil for to_param are now removed from the query string *Andrew White*
382
383 * Don't allow i18n to change the minor version, version now set to ~> 0.5.0 *Santiago Pastorino*
384
385 * Make TranslationHelper#translate use the :rescue_format option in I18n 0.5.0 *Sven Fuchs*
386
387 * Fix regression: javascript_include_tag shouldn't raise if you register an expansion key with nil or [] value *Santiago Pastorino*
388
389 * 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*
390
391
392 ## Rails 3.0.5 (February 26, 2011) ##
393
394 * No changes.
395

397 ## Rails 3.0.4 (February 8, 2011) ##
398
399 * No changes.
400
401
402 ## Rails 3.0.3 (November 16, 2010) ##
403
404 * When ActiveRecord::Base objects are sent to predicate methods, the id of the object should be sent to ARel, not the ActiveRecord::Base object.
405
406 * :constraints routing should only do sanity checks against regular expressions. String arguments are OK.
407
408
409 ## Rails 3.0.2 (November 15, 2010) ##
410
411 * The helper number_to_currency accepts a new :negative_format option to be able to configure how to render negative amounts. *Don Wilson*
412
413
414 ## Rails 3.0.1 (October 15, 2010) ##
415
416 * No Changes, just a version bump.
417
418
419 ## Rails 3.0.0 (August 29, 2010) ##
420
421 * 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*
422
423 * 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*
424
425 * 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*
426
427 * Support routing constraints in functional tests. *Andrew White*
428
429 * Add a header that tells Internet Explorer (all versions) to use the best available standards support. *Yehuda Katz*
430
431 * Allow stylesheet/javascript extensions to be changed through railties. *Josh Kalderimis*
432
433 * link_to, button_to, and tag/tag_options now rely on html_escape instead of escape_once. *fxn*
434
435 * url_for returns always unescaped strings, and the :escape option is gone. *fxn*
436
437 * Added accept-charset parameter and _snowman hidden field to force the contents
438 of Rails POSTed forms to be in UTF-8 *Yehuda Katz*
439
440 * Upgrade to Rack 1.2.1 *Jeremy Kemper*
441
442 * Allow :path to be given to match/get/post/put/delete instead of :path_names in the new router *Carlos Antônio da Silva*
443
444 * Added resources_path_names to the new router DSL *José Valim*
445
446 * Allow options to be given to the namespace method in the new router *Carlos Antônio da Silva*
447
448 * Deprecate :name_prefix in the new router DSL *José Valim*
449
450 * Add shallow routes back to the new router *Diego Carrion, Andrew White*
451
452 resources :posts do
453 shallow do
454 resources :comments
455 end
456 end
457
458 You can now use comment_path for /comments/1 instead of post_comment_path for /posts/1/comments/1.
459
460 * 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*
461
462 * Removed textilize, textilize_without_paragraph and markdown helpers. *Santiago Pastorino*
463
464 * Remove middleware laziness *José Valim*
465
466 * Make session stores rely on request.cookie_jar and change set_session semantics to return the cookie value instead of a boolean. *José Valim*
467
468 * OAuth 2: HTTP Token Authorization support to complement Basic and Digest Authorization. *Rick Olson*
469
470 * Fixed inconsistencies in form builder and view helpers #4432 *Neeraj Singh*
471
472 * 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*
473
474 * Renamed the field error CSS class from fieldWithErrors to field_with_errors for consistency. *Jeremy Kemper*
475
476 * Add support for shorthand routes like /projects/status(.:format) #4423 *Diego Carrion*
477
478 * 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*
479
480 * 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*
481
482 * Removed verify method in controllers. *JV*
483 It's now available as a plugin at http://github.com/rails/verification
484
485 * Removed input, form, error_messages_for and error_message_on from views. *JV*
486 It's now available as a plugin at http://github.com/rails/dynamic_form
487
488 * Routes can be scoped by controller module. *Jeremy Kemper*
489
490 # /session => Auth::SessionsController
491 scope :module => 'auth' do
492 resource :session
493 end
494
495 * Added #favicon_link_tag, it uses #image_path so in particular the favicon gets an asset ID *fxn*
496
497 * Fixed that default locale templates should be used if the current locale template is missing *DHH*
498
499 * Added all the new HTML5 form types as individual form tag methods (search, url, number, etc) #3646 *Stephen Celis*
500
501 * Changed the object used in routing constraints to be an instance of
502 ActionDispatch::Request rather than Rack::Request *YK*
503
504 * Changed ActionDispatch::Request#method to return a String, to be compatible
505 with Rack::Request. Added ActionDispatch::Request#method_symbol to
506 return a symbol form of the request method. *YK*
507
508 * Changed ActionDispatch::Request#method to return the original
509 method and #request_method to return the overridden method in the
510 case of methodoverride being used (this means that #method returns
511 "HEAD" and #request_method returns "GET" in HEAD requests). This
512 is for compatibility with Rack::Request *YK*
513
514 * #concat is now deprecated in favor of using <%= %> helpers *YK*
515
516 * Block helpers now return Strings, so you can use <%= form_for @foo do |f| %>.
517 <% form_for do |f| %> still works with deprecation notices *YK*
518
519 * Add a new #mount method on the router that does not anchor the PATH_INFO
520 at the end *YK & CL*
521
522 * Create a new LookupContext object that is responsible for performantly
523 finding a template for a given pattern *JV*
524
525 * Removed relative_url_for in favor of respecting SCRIPT_NAME *YK & CL*
526
527 * Changed file streaming to use Rack::Sendfile middleware *YK*
528
529 * ActionDispatch::Request#content_type returns a String to be compatible with
530 Rack::Request. Use #content_mime_type for the Mime::Type instance *YK*
531
532 * Updated Prototype to 1.6.1 and Scriptaculous to 1.8.3 *ML*
533
534 * Change the preferred way that URL helpers are included into a class*YK & CL*
535
536 # for all helpers including named routes
537 include Rails.application.router.url_helpers
538
539 # for just url_for
540 include Rails.application.router.url_for
541
542 * Fixed that PrototypeHelper#update_page should return html_safe *DHH*
543
544 * Fixed that much of DateHelper wouldn't return html_safe? strings *DHH*
545
546 * Fixed that fragment caching should return a cache hit as html_safe (or it would all just get escaped) *DHH*
547
548 * Added that ActionController::Base now does helper :all instead of relying on the default ApplicationController in Rails to do it *DHH*
549
550 * Added ActionDispatch::Request#authorization to access the http authentication header regardless of its proxy hiding *DHH*
551
552 * Added :alert, :notice, and :flash as options to ActionController::Base#redirect_to that'll automatically set the proper flash before the redirection [DHH]. Examples:
553
554 flash[:notice] = 'Post was created'
555 redirect_to(@post)
556
557 ...becomes:
558
559 redirect_to(@post, :notice => 'Post was created')
560
561 * 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*
562
563
564 * Introduce grouped_collection_select helper. #1249 *Dan Codeape, Erik Ostrom*
565
566 * Make sure javascript_include_tag/stylesheet_link_tag does not append ".js" or ".css" onto external urls. #1664 *Matthew Rudy Jacobs*
567
568 * Ruby 1.9: fix Content-Length for multibyte send_data streaming. #2661 *Sava Chankov*
569
570 * Ruby 1.9: ERB template encoding using a magic comment at the top of the file. *Jeremy Kemper*
571 <%# encoding: utf-8 %>
572
573 * Change integration test helpers to accept Rack environment instead of just HTTP Headers *Pratik Naik*
574
575 Before : get '/path', {}, 'Accept' => 'text/javascript'
576 After : get '/path', {}, 'HTTP_ACCEPT' => 'text/javascript'
577
578 * Instead of checking Rails.env.test? in Failsafe middleware, check env["rails.raise_exceptions"] *Bryan Helmkamp*
579
580 * Fixed that TestResponse.cookies was returning cookies unescaped #1867 *Doug McInnes*
581
582
583 ## 2.3.2 Final (March 15, 2009) ##
584
585 * Fixed that redirection would just log the options, not the final url (which lead to "Redirected to #<Post:0x23150b8>") *DHH*
586
587 * Don't check authenticity tokens for any AJAX requests *Ross Kaffenberger/Bryan Helmkamp*
588
589 * Added ability to pass in :public => true to fresh_when, stale?, and expires_in to make the request proxy cachable #2095 *Gregg Pollack*
590
591 * Fixed that passing a custom form builder would be forwarded to nested fields_for calls #2023 *Eloy Duran/Nate Wiger*
592
593 * Form option helpers now support disabled option tags and the use of lambdas for selecting/disabling option tags from collections #837 *Tekin*
594
595 * 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*
596
597 * Fix a syntax error in current_page?() that was prevent matches against URL's with multiple query parameters #1385, #1868 *chris finne/Andrew White*
598
599 * Added localized rescue template when I18n.locale is set (ex: public/404.da.html) #1835 *José Valim*
600
601 * Make the form_for and fields_for helpers support the new Active Record nested update options. #1202 *Eloy Duran*
602
603 <% form_for @person do |person_form| %>
604 ...
605 <% person_form.fields_for :projects do |project_fields| %>
606 <% if project_fields.object.active? %>
607 Name: <%= project_fields.text_field :name %>
608 <% end %>
609 <% end %>
610 <% end %>
611
612
613 * Added grouped_options_for_select helper method for wrapping option tags in optgroups. #977 *Jon Crawford*
614
615 * Implement HTTP Digest authentication. #1230 [Gregg Kellogg, Pratik Naik] Example :
616
617 class DummyDigestController < ActionController::Base
618 USERS = { "lifo" => 'world' }
619
620 before_filter :authenticate
621
622 def index
623 render :text => "Hello Secret"
624 end
625
626 private
627
628 def authenticate
629 authenticate_or_request_with_http_digest("Super Secret") do |username|
630 # Return the user's password
631 USERS[username]
632 end
633 end
634 end
635
636 * Improved i18n support for the number_to_human_size helper. Changes the storage_units translation data; update your translations accordingly. #1634 *Yaroslav Markin*
637 storage_units:
638 # %u is the storage unit, %n is the number (default: 2 MB)
639 format: "%n %u"
640 units:
641 byte:
642 one: "Byte"
643 other: "Bytes"
644 kb: "KB"
645 mb: "MB"
646 gb: "GB"
647 tb: "TB"
648
649 * Added :silence option to BenchmarkHelper#benchmark and turned log_level into a hash parameter and deprecated the old use *DHH*
650
651 * 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*
652
653 * Make ActionController#render(string) work as a shortcut for render :file/:template/:action => string. [#1435] [Pratik Naik] Examples:
654
655 \# Instead of render(:action => 'other_action')
656 render('other_action') # argument has no '/'
657 render(:other_action)
658
659 \# Instead of render(:template => 'controller/action')
660 render('controller/action') # argument must not begin with a '/', but contain a '/'
661
662 \# Instead of render(:file => '/Users/lifo/home.html.erb')
663 render('/Users/lifo/home.html.erb') # argument must begin with a '/'
664
665 * Add :prompt option to date/time select helpers. #561 *Sam Oliver*
666
667 * Fixed that send_file shouldn't set an etag #1578 *Hongli Lai*
668
669 * Allow users to opt out of the spoofing checks in Request#remote_ip. Useful for sites whose traffic regularly triggers false positives. *Darren Boyd*
670
671 * Deprecated formatted_polymorphic_url. *Jeremy Kemper*
672
673 * 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*
674
675 * 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*
676
677 * Dropped formatted_* routes in favor of just passing in :format as an option. This cuts resource routes generation in half #1359 *aaronbatalion*
678
679 * 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*
680
681 * Allow helpers directory to be overridden via ActionController::Base.helpers_dir #1424 *Sam Pohlenz*
682
683 * Remove deprecated ActionController::Base#assign_default_content_type_and_charset
684
685 * Changed the default of ActionView#render to assume partials instead of files when not given an options hash [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
686
687 # Instead of <%= render :partial => "account" %>
688 <%= render "account" %>
689
690 # Instead of <%= render :partial => "account", :locals => { :account => @buyer } %>
691 <%= render "account", :account => @buyer %>
692
693 # @account is an Account instance, so it uses the RecordIdentifier to replace
694 # <%= render :partial => "accounts/account", :locals => { :account => @account } %>
695 <%= render(@account) %>
696
697 # @posts is an array of Post instances, so it uses the RecordIdentifier to replace
698 # <%= render :partial => "posts/post", :collection => @posts %>
699 <%= render(@posts) %>
700
701 * Remove deprecated render_component. Please use the plugin from http://github.com/rails/render_component/tree/master *Pratik Naik*
702
703 * 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*
704
705
706 ## 2.2.2 (November 21st, 2008) ##
707
708 * I18n: translate number_to_human_size. Add storage_units: [Bytes, KB, MB, GB, TB] to your translations. #1448 *Yaroslav Markin*
709
710 * Restore backwards compatible functionality for setting relative_url_root. Include deprecation
711
712 * Switched the CSRF module to use the request content type to decide if the request is forgeable. #1145 *Jeff Cohen*
713
714 * 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*
715
716 map.resources :products, :only => :show do |product|
717 product.resources :images, :except => :destroy
718 end
719
720 * Added render :js for people who want to render inline JavaScript replies without using RJS *David Heinemeier Hansson*
721
722 * Fixed that polymorphic_url should compact given array #1317 *hiroshi*
723
724 * Fixed the sanitize helper to avoid double escaping already properly escaped entities #683 *antonmos/Ryan McGeary*
725
726 * Fixed that FormTagHelper generated illegal html if name contained square brackets #1238 *Vladimir Dobriakov*
727
728 * 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*
729
730 * Simplified the logging format for parameters (don't include controller, action, and format as duplicates) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
731
732 * Remove the logging of the Session ID when the session store is CookieStore *David Heinemeier Hansson*
733
734 * Fixed regex in redirect_to to fully support URI schemes #1247 *Seth Fitzsimmons*
735
736 * Fixed bug with asset timestamping when using relative_url_root #1265 *Joe Goldwasser*
737
738
739 ## 2.2.0 RC1 (October 24th, 2008) ##
740
741 * Fix incorrect closing CDATA delimiter and that HTML::Node.parse would blow up on unclosed CDATA sections *packagethief*
742
743 * Added stale? and fresh_when methods to provide a layer of abstraction above request.fresh? and friends [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
744
745 class ArticlesController < ApplicationController
746 def show_with_respond_to_block
747 @article = Article.find(params[:id])
748
749
750 # If the request sends headers that differs from the options provided to stale?, then
751 # the request is indeed stale and the respond_to block is triggered (and the options
752 # to the stale? call is set on the response).
753 #
754 # If the request headers match, then the request is fresh and the respond_to block is
755 # not triggered. Instead the default render will occur, which will check the last-modified
756 # and etag headers and conclude that it only needs to send a "304 Not Modified" instead
757 # of rendering the template.
758 if stale?(:last_modified => @article.published_at.utc, :etag => @article)
759 respond_to do |wants|
760 # normal response processing
761 end
762 end
763 end
764
765 def show_with_implied_render
766 @article = Article.find(params[:id])
767
768 # Sets the response headers and checks them against the request, if the request is stale
769 # (i.e. no match of either etag or last-modified), then the default render of the template happens.
770 # If the request is fresh, then the default render will return a "304 Not Modified"
771 # instead of rendering the template.
772 fresh_when(:last_modified => @article.published_at.utc, :etag => @article)
773 end
774 end
775
776
777 * Added inline builder yield to atom_feed_helper tags where appropriate [Sam Ruby]. Example:
778
779 entry.summary :type => 'xhtml' do |xhtml|
780 xhtml.p pluralize(order.line_items.count, "line item")
781 xhtml.p "Shipped to #{order.address}"
782 xhtml.p "Paid by #{order.pay_type}"
783 end
784
785 * Make PrototypeHelper#submit_to_remote a wrapper around PrototypeHelper#button_to_remote. *Tarmo Tänav*
786
787 * Set HttpOnly for the cookie session store's cookie. #1046
788
789 * Added FormTagHelper#image_submit_tag confirm option #784 *Alastair Brunton*
790
791 * Fixed FormTagHelper#submit_tag with :disable_with option wouldn't submit the button's value when was clicked #633 *Jose Fernandez*
792
793 * Stopped logging template compiles as it only clogs up the log *David Heinemeier Hansson*
794
795 * Changed the X-Runtime header to report in milliseconds *David Heinemeier Hansson*
796
797 * Changed BenchmarkHelper#benchmark to report in milliseconds *David Heinemeier Hansson*
798
799 * Changed logging format to be millisecond based and skip misleading stats [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Went from:
800
801 Completed in 0.10000 (4 reqs/sec) | Rendering: 0.04000 (40%) | DB: 0.00400 (4%) | 200 OK [http://example.com]
802
803 ...to:
804
805 Completed in 100ms (View: 40, DB: 4) | 200 OK [http://example.com]
806
807 * Add support for shallow nesting of routes. #838 *S. Brent Faulkner*
808
809 Example :
810
811 map.resources :users, :shallow => true do |user|
812 user.resources :posts
813 end
814
815 - GET /users/1/posts (maps to PostsController#index action as usual)
816 named route "user_posts" is added as usual.
817
818 - GET /posts/2 (maps to PostsController#show action as if it were not nested)
819 Additionally, named route "post" is added too.
820
821 * Added button_to_remote helper. #3641 *Donald Piret, Tarmo Tänav*
822
823 * Deprecate render_component. Please use render_component plugin from http://github.com/rails/render_component/tree/master *Pratik Naik*
824
825 * Routes may be restricted to lists of HTTP methods instead of a single method or :any. #407 *Brennan Dunn, Gaius Centus Novus*
826 map.resource :posts, :collection => { :search => [:get, :post] }
827 map.session 'session', :requirements => { :method => [:get, :post, :delete] }
828
829 * Deprecated implicit local assignments when rendering partials *Josh Peek*
830
831 * Introduce current_cycle helper method to return the current value without bumping the cycle. #417 *Ken Collins*
832
833 * Allow polymorphic_url helper to take url options. #880 *Tarmo Tänav*
834
835 * Switched integration test runner to use Rack processor instead of CGI *Josh Peek*
836
837 * Made AbstractRequest.if_modified_sense return nil if the header could not be parsed *Jamis Buck*
838
839 * Added back ActionController::Base.allow_concurrency flag *Josh Peek*
840
841 * 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*
842
843 * Update Prototype to 1.6.0.2 #599 *Patrick Joyce*
844
845 * Conditional GET utility methods. *Jeremy Kemper*
846 response.last_modified = @post.updated_at
847 response.etag = [:admin, @post, current_user]
848
849 if request.fresh?(response)
850 head :not_modified
851 else
852 # render ...
853 end
854
855 * All 2xx requests are considered successful *Josh Peek*
856
857 * 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*
858
859 * Removed config.action_view.cache_template_loading, use config.cache_classes instead *Josh Peek*
860
861 * Get buffer for fragment cache from template's @output_buffer *Josh Peek*
862
863 * 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*
864
865 * Refactor template preloading. New abstractions include Renderable mixins and a refactored Template class *Josh Peek*
866
867 * Changed ActionView::TemplateHandler#render API method signature to render(template, local_assigns = {}) *Josh Peek*
868
869 * 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*
870
871 * Add :recursive option to javascript_include_tag and stylesheet_link_tag to be used along with :all. #480 *Damian Janowski*
872
873 * Allow users to disable the use of the Accept header *Michael Koziarski*
874
875 The accept header is poorly implemented by browsers and causes strange
876 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.
877 To disable the header you need to set:
878 config.action_controller.use_accept_header = false
879 * 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*
880
881 * Deprecated TemplateHandler line offset *Josh Peek*
882
883 * Allow caches_action to accept cache store options. #416. [José Valim]. Example:
884
885 caches_action :index, :redirected, :if => Proc.new { |c| !c.request.format.json? }, :expires_in => 1.hour
886
887 * Remove define_javascript_functions, javascript_include_tag and friends are far superior. *Michael Koziarski*
888
889 * Deprecate :use_full_path render option. The supplying the option no longer has an effect *Josh Peek*
890
891 * Add :as option to render a collection of partials with a custom local variable name. #509 *Simon Jefford, Pratik Naik*
892
893 render :partial => 'other_people', :collection => @people, :as => :person
894
895 This will let you access objects of @people as 'person' local variable inside 'other_people' partial template.
896
897 * time_zone_select: support for regexp matching of priority zones. Resolves #195 *Ernie Miller*
898
899 * Made ActionView::Base#render_file private *Josh Peek*
900
901 * Refactor and simplify the implementation of assert_redirected_to. Arguments are now normalised relative to the controller being tested, not the root of the application. *Michael Koziarski*
902
903 This could cause some erroneous test failures if you were redirecting between controllers
904 in different namespaces and wrote your assertions relative to the root of the application.
905
906 * Remove follow_redirect from controller functional tests.
907
908 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=>...
909 * Fix polymorphic_url with singleton resources. #461 *Tammer Saleh*
910
911 * Replaced TemplateFinder abstraction with ViewLoadPaths *Josh Peek*
912
913 * Added block-call style to link_to [Sam Stephenson/David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
914
915 <% link_to(@profile) do %>
916 <strong><%= @profile.name %></strong> -- <span>Check it out!!</span>
917 <% end %>
918
919 * Performance: integration test benchmarking and profiling. *Jeremy Kemper*
920
921 * Make caching more aware of mime types. Ensure request format is not considered while expiring cache. *Jonathan del Strother*
922
923 * Drop ActionController::Base.allow_concurrency flag *Josh Peek*
924
925 * More efficient concat and capture helpers. Remove ActionView::Base.erb_variable. *Jeremy Kemper*
926
927 * Added page.reload functionality. Resolves #277. *Sean Huber*
928
929 * 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*
930
931 * Allow caches_action to accept a layout option *José Valim*
932

1341 * Fixed that setting the :host option in url_for would automatically turn off :only_path (since :host would otherwise not be shown) #9586 *Bounga*
1342
1343 * Added FormHelper#label. #8641, #9850 *jcoglan, Jarkko Laine*
1344
1345 * Added AtomFeedHelper (slightly improved from the atom_feed_helper plugin) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1346
1347 * 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*
1348
1349 * 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*
1350
1351 * Don't warn when a path segment precedes a required segment. Closes #9615. *Nicholas Seckar*
1352
1353 * Fixed CaptureHelper#content_for to work with the optional content parameter instead of just the block #9434 [sandofsky/wildchild].
1354
1355 * Added Mime::Type.register_alias for dealing with different formats using the same mime type [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1356
1357 class PostsController < ApplicationController
1358 before_filter :adjust_format_for_iphone
1359
1360 def index
1361 @posts = Post.find(:all)
1362
1363 respond_to do |format|
1364 format.html # => renders index.html.erb and uses "text/html" as the content type
1365 format.iphone # => renders index.iphone.erb and uses "text/html" as the content type
1366 end
1367 end
1368
1369
1370 private
1371 def adjust_format_for_iphone
1372 if request.env["HTTP_USER_AGENT"] && request.env["HTTP_USER_AGENT"][/iPhone/]
1373 request.format = :iphone
1374 end
1375 end
1376 end
1377
1378 * Added that render :json will automatically call .to_json unless it's being passed a string [David Heinemeier Hansson].
1379
1380 * Autolink behaves well with emails embedded in URLs. #7313 *Jeremy McAnally, Tarmo Tänav*
1381
1382 * Fixed that default layouts did not take the format into account #9564 *Pratik Naik*
1383
1384 * Fixed optimized route segment escaping. #9562 *wildchild, Jeremy Kemper*
1385
1386 * Added block acceptance to JavaScriptHelper#javascript_tag. #7527 *Bob Silva, Tarmo Tänav, rmm5t*
1387
1388 * root_path returns '/' not ''. #9563 *Pratik Naik*
1389
1390 * Fixed that setting request.format should also affect respond_to blocks *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1391
1392 * Add option to force binary mode on tempfile used for fixture_file_upload. #6380 *Jonathan Viney*
1393
1394 * Fixed that resource namespaces wouldn't stick to all nested resources #9399 *pixeltrix*
1395
1396 * Moved ActionController::Macros::AutoComplete into the auto_complete plugin on the official Rails svn. #9512 *Pratik Naik*
1397
1398 * Moved ActionController::Macros::InPlaceEditing into the in_place_editor plugin on the official Rails svn. #9513 *Pratik Naik*
1399
1400 * Removed deprecated form of calling xml_http_request/xhr without the first argument being the http verb *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1401
1402 * Removed deprecated methods [David Heinemeier Hansson]:
1403
1404 - ActionController::Base#keep_flash (use flash.keep instead)
1405 - ActionController::Base#expire_matched_fragments (just call expire_fragment with a regular expression)
1406 - ActionController::Base.template_root/= methods (use ActionController#Base.view_paths/= instead)
1407 - ActionController::Base.cookie (use ActionController#Base.cookies[]= instead)
1408
1409 * Removed the deprecated behavior of appending ".png" to image_tag/image_path calls without an existing extension *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1410
1411 * 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*
1412
1413 * Optimise named route generation when using positional arguments. *Michael Koziarski*
1414
1415 This change delivers significant performance benefits for the most
1416 common usage scenarios for modern rails applications by avoiding the
1417 costly trip through url_for. Initial benchmarks indicate this is
1418 between 6 and 20 times as fast.
1419
1420 * Explicitly require active_record/query_cache before using it. *Jeremy Kemper*
1421
1422 * Fix layout overriding response status. #9476 *lotswholetime*
1423
1424 * Add field_set_tag for generating field_sets, closes #9477. *Damian Janowski*
1425
1426 * Allow additional parameters to be passed to named route helpers when using positional arguments. Closes #8930 *Ian White*
1427
1428 * Make render :partial work with a :collection of Hashes, previously this wasn't possible due to backwards compatibility restrictions. *Pratik Naik*
1429
1430 * request.host works with IPv6 addresses. #9458 *yuya*
1431
1432 * Fix bug where action caching sets the content type to the ActionCachePath object. Closes #9282 *mindforge*
1433
1434 * Find layouts even if they're not in the first view_paths directory. Closes #9258 *caio*
1435
1436 * Major improvement to the documentation for the options / select form helpers. Closes #9038 *Chris Kampmeier, jardeon, wesg*
1437
1438 * Fix number_to_human_size when using different precisions. Closes #7536. *RichardStrand, mpalmer*
1439
1440 * Added partial layouts (see example in action_view/lib/partials.rb) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1441
1442 * Allow you to set custom :conditions on resource routes. *Rick Olson*
1443
1444 * Fixed that file.content_type for uploaded files would include a trailing \r #9053 *Brad Greenlee*
1445
1446 * url_for now accepts a series of symbols representing the namespace of the record *Josh Knowles*
1447
1448 * Make :trailing_slash work with query parameters for url_for. Closes #4004 *nov*
1449
1450 * Make sure missing template exceptions actually say which template they were looking for. Closes #8683 *dasil003*
1451
1452 * Fix errors with around_filters which do not yield, restore 1.1 behaviour with after filters. Closes #8891 *Stefan Kaes*
1453
1454 After filters will *no longer* be run if an around_filter fails to yield, users relying on
1455 this behaviour are advised to put the code in question after a yield statement in an around filter.
1456
1457
1458 * Allow you to delete cookies with options. Closes #3685 *Josh Peek, Chris Wanstrath*
1459
1460 * Allow you to render views with periods in the name. Closes #8076 *Norbert Crombach*
1461
1462 render :partial => 'show.html.erb'
1463
1464 * Improve capture helper documentation. #8796 *Chris Kampmeier*
1465
1466 * 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*
1467
1468 * Allow sweepers to be created solely for expiring after controller actions, not model changes *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1469
1470 * Added assigns method to ActionController::Caching::Sweeper to easily access instance variables on the controller *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1471
1472 * Give the legacy X-POST_DATA_FORMAT header greater precedence during params parsing for backward compatibility. *Jeremy Kemper*
1473
1474 * Fixed that link_to with an href of # when using :method will not allow for click-through without JavaScript #7037 *Steven Bristol, Josh Peek*
1475
1476 * Fixed that radio_button_tag should generate unique ids #3353 *Bob Silva, Rebecca, Josh Peek*
1477
1478 * Fixed that HTTP authentication should work if the header is called REDIRECT_X_HTTP_AUTHORIZATION as well #6754 *Mislav Marohnić*
1479
1480 * Don't mistakenly interpret the request uri as the query string. #8731 *Pratik Naik, Jeremy Kemper*
1481
1482 * 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*
1483
1484 * Tolerate missing content type on multipart file uploads. Fix for Safari 3. *Jeremy Kemper*
1485
1486 * Deprecation: remove pagination. Install the classic_pagination plugin for forward compatibility, or move to the superior will_paginate plugin. #8157 *Josh Peek*
1487
1488 * Action caching is limited to GET requests returning 200 OK status. #3335 *tom@craz8.com, halfbyte, Dan Kubb, Josh Peek*
1489
1490 * Improve Text Helper test coverage. #7274 *Rob Sanheim, Josh Peek*
1491
1492 * Improve helper test coverage. #7208, #7212, #7215, #7233, #7234, #7235, #7236, #7237, #7238, #7241, #7243, #7244 *Rich Collins, Josh Peek*
1493
1494 * Improve UrlRewriter tests. #7207 *Rich Collins*
1495
1496 * 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*
1497
1498 * Assume html format when rendering partials in RJS. #8076 *Rick Olson*
1499
1500 * Don't double-escape url_for in views. #8144 *Rich Collins, Josh Peek*
1501
1502 * Allow JSON-style values for the :with option of observe_field. Closes #8557 *kommen*
1503
1504 * Remove RAILS_ROOT from backtrace paths. #8540 *Tim Pope*
1505
1506 * Routing: map.resource :logo routes to LogosController so the controller may be reused for multiple nestings or namespaces. *Jeremy Kemper*
1507
1508 * render :partial recognizes Active Record associations as Arrays. #8538 *Kamal Fariz Mahyuddin*
1509
1510 * Routing: drop semicolon and comma as route separators. *Jeremy Kemper*
1511
1512 * request.remote_ip understands X-Forwarded-For addresses with nonstandard whitespace. #7386 *moses*
1513
1514 * Don't prepare response when rendering a component. #8493 *jsierles*
1515
1516 * Reduce file stat calls when checking for template changes. #7736 *alex*
1517
1518 * Added custom path cache_page/expire_page parameters in addition to the options hashes [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1519
1520 def index
1521 caches_page(response.body, "/index.html")
1522 end
1523
1524 * Action Caching speedup. #8231 *Stefan Kaes*
1525
1526 * Wordsmith resources documentation. #8484 *marclove*
1527
1528 * Fix syntax error in code example for routing documentation. #8377. *Norbert Crombach*
1529
1530 * 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*
1531
1532 * Add support for assert_select_rjs with :show and :hide. #7780 *dchelimsky*
1533
1534 * Make assert_select's failure messages clearer about what failed. #7779 *dchelimsky*
1535
1536 * Introduce a default respond_to block for custom types. #8174 *Josh Peek*
1537
1538 * auto_complete_field takes a :method option so you can GET or POST. #8120 *zapnap*
1539
1540 * Added option to suppress :size when using :maxlength for FormTagHelper#text_field #3112 *Tim Pope*
1541
1542 * catch possible WSOD when trying to render a missing partial. Closes #8454 *Jonathan del Strother*
1543
1544 * Rewind request body after reading it, if possible. #8438 *s450r1*
1545
1546 * Resource namespaces are inherited by their has_many subresources. #8280 *marclove, Geoff Garside*
1547
1548 * Fix filtered parameter logging with nil parameter values. #8422 *choonkeat*
1549
1550 * 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*
1551
1552 * Document caches_action. #5419 *Jarkko Laine*
1553
1554 * Update to Prototype 1.5.1. *Sam Stephenson*
1555
1556 * Allow routes to be decalred under namespaces [Tobias Lütke]:
1557
1558 map.namespace :admin do |admin|
1559 admin.root :controller => "products"
1560 admin.feed 'feed.xml', :controller => 'products', :action => 'feed', :format => 'xml'
1561 end
1562
1563 * Update to script.aculo.us 1.7.1_beta3. *Thomas Fuchs*
1564
1565 * observe_form always sends the serialized form. #5271 *Manfred Stienstra, normelton@gmail.com*
1566
1567 * Parse url-encoded and multipart requests ourselves instead of delegating to CGI. *Jeremy Kemper*
1568
1569 * select :include_blank option can be set to a string instead of true, which just uses an empty string. #7664 *Wizard*
1570
1571 * Added url_for usage on render :location, which allows for record identification [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1572
1573 render :xml => person, :status => :created, :location => person
1574
1575 ...expands the location to person_url(person).
1576
1577 * 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*
1578
1579 * Add some performance enhancements to ActionView.
1580
1581 * Cache base_paths in @@cached_base_paths
1582 * Cache template extensions in @@cached_template_extension
1583 * Remove unnecessary rescues
1584
1585 * Assume that rendered partials go by the HTML format by default
1586
1587 def my_partial
1588 render :update do |page|
1589 # in this order
1590 # _foo.html.erb
1591 # _foo.erb
1592 # _foo.rhtml
1593 page.replace :foo, :partial => 'foo'
1594 end
1595 end
1596
1597 * Added record identifications to FormHelper#form_for and PrototypeHelper#remote_form_for [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
1598
1599 <% form_for(@post) do |f| %>
1600 ...
1601 <% end %>
1602
1603 This will expand to be the same as:
1604
1605 <% form_for :post, @post, :url => post_path(@post), :html => { :method => :put, :class => "edit_post", :id => "edit_post_45" } do |f| %>
1606 ...
1607 <% end %>
1608
1609 And for new records:
1610
1611 <% form_for(Post.new) do |f| %>
1612 ...
1613 <% end %>
1614
1615 This will expand to be the same as:
1616
1617 <% form_for :post, @post, :url => posts_path, :html => { :class => "new_post", :id => "new_post" } do |f| %>
1618 ...
1619 <% end %>
1620
1621 * Rationalize route path escaping according to RFC 2396 section 3.3. #7544, #8307. *Jeremy Kemper, Chris Roos, begemot, jugend*
1622
1623 * Added record identification with polymorphic routes for ActionController::Base#url_for and ActionView::Base#url_for [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
1624
1625 redirect_to(post) # => redirect_to(posts_url(post)) => Location: http://example.com/posts/1
1626 link_to(post.title, post) # => link_to(post.title, posts_url(post)) => <a href="/posts/1">Hello world</a>
1627
1628 Any method that calls url_for on its parameters will automatically benefit from this.
1629
1630 * Removed deprecated parameters_for_method_reference concept (legacy from before named routes) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1631
1632 * Add ActionController::Routing::Helpers, a module to contain common URL helpers such as polymorphic_url. *Nicholas Seckar*
1633
1634 * Included the HttpAuthentication plugin as part of core (ActionController::HttpAuthentication::Basic) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1635
1636 * Modernize documentation for form helpers. *Jeremy McAnally*
1637
1638 * Add brief introduction to REST to the resources documentation. *fearoffish*
1639
1640 * Fix various documentation typos throughout ActionPack. *Henrik N*
1641
1642 * Enhance documentation and add examples for url_for. *Jeremy McAnally*
1643
1644 * Fix documentation typo in routes. *Norbert Crombach, pam*
1645
1646 * Sweep flash when filter chain is halted. *Caio Chassot <lists@v2studio.com>*
1647
1648 * 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*
1649
1650 * Replace the current block/continuation filter chain handling by an implementation based on a simple loop. #8226 *Stefan Kaes*
1651
1652 * Update UrlWriter to accept :anchor parameter. Closes #6771. *Chris McGrath*
1653
1654 * Added RecordTagHelper for using RecordIdentifier conventions on divs and other container elements [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1655
1656 <% div_for(post) do %> <div id="post_45" class="post">
1657 <%= post.body %> What a wonderful world!
1658 <% end %> </div>
1659
1660 * Added page[record] accessor to JavaScriptGenerator that relies on RecordIdentifier to find the right dom id [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1661
1662 format.js do
1663 # Calls: new Effect.fade('post_45');
1664 render(:update) { |page| page[post].visual_effect(:fade) }
1665 end
1666
1667 * Added RecordIdentifier to enforce view conventions on records for dom ids, classes, and partial paths *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1668
1669 * Added map.namespace to deal with the common situation of admin sections and the like *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1670
1671 Before:
1672
1673 map.resources :products, :path_prefix => "admin", :controller => "admin/products", :collection => { :inventory => :get }, :member => { :duplicate => :post }
1674 map.resources :tags, :name_prefix => 'admin_product_', :path_prefix => "admin/products/:product_id", :controller => "admin/product_tags"
1675 map.resources :images, :name_prefix => 'admin_product_', :path_prefix => "admin/products/:product_id", :controller => "admin/product_images"
1676 map.resources :variants, :name_prefix => 'admin_product_', :path_prefix => "admin/products/:product_id", :controller => "admin/product_variants"
1677
1678 After:
1679
1680 map.namespace(:admin) do |admin|
1681 admin.resources :products,
1682 :collection => { :inventory => :get },
1683 :member => { :duplicate => :post },
1684 :has_many => [ :tags, :images, :variants ]
1685 end
1686
1687 * Added :name_prefix as standard for nested resources [David Heinemeier Hansson]. WARNING: May be backwards incompatible with your app
1688
1689 Before:
1690
1691 map.resources :emails do |emails|
1692 emails.resources :comments, :name_prefix => "email_"
1693 emails.resources :attachments, :name_prefix => "email_"
1694 end
1695
1696 After:
1697
1698 map.resources :emails do |emails|
1699 emails.resources :comments
1700 emails.resources :attachments
1701 end
1702
1703 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.
1704
1705 * Added :has_many and :has_one for declaring plural and singular resources beneath the current *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1706
1707 Before:
1708
1709 map.resources :notes do |notes|
1710 notes.resources :comments
1711 notes.resources :attachments
1712 notes.resource :author
1713 end
1714
1715 After:
1716
1717 map.resources :notes, :has_many => [ :comments, :attachments ], :has_one => :author
1718
1719 * Added that render :xml will try to call to_xml if it can [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Makes these work:
1720
1721 render :xml => post
1722 render :xml => comments
1723
1724 * 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*
1725
1726 render :xml => post.to_xml, :status => :created, :location => post_url(post)
1727
1728 * Ensure that render_text only adds string content to the body of the response *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1729
1730 * Return the string representation from an Xml Builder when rendering a partial. Closes #5044 *Tim Pope*
1731
1732 * Fixed that parameters from XML should also be presented in a hash with indifferent access *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1733
1734 * 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*
1735
1736 * 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*
1737
1738 * Allow layouts with extension of .html.erb. Closes #8032 *Josh Knowles*
1739
1740 * Change default respond_to templates for xml and rjs formats. *Rick Olson*
1741
1742 * Default xml template goes from #{action_name}.rxml => #{action_name}.xml.builder.
1743 * Default rjs template goes from #{action_name}.rjs => #{action_name}.js.rjs.
1744
1745 You can still specify your old templates:
1746
1747 respond_to do |format|
1748 format.xml do
1749 render :action => "#{action_name}.rxml"
1750 end
1751 end
1752
1753 * 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*
1754
1755 * Fix WSOD when template compilation fails *Rick Olson*
1756
1757 * 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*
1758
1759 * Highlight helper highlights one or many terms in a single pass. *Jeremy Kemper*
1760
1761 * 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*
1762
1763 * Added that FormTagHelper#submit_tag will return to its original state if the submit fails and you're using :disable_with *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1764
1765 * Cleaned up, corrected, and mildly expanded ActionPack documentation. Closes #7190 *Jeremy McAnally*
1766
1767 * Small collection of ActionController documentation cleanups. Closes #7319 *Jeremy McAnally*
1768
1769 * Make sure the route expiry hash is constructed by comparing the to_param-ized values of each hash. *Jamis Buck*
1770
1771 * Allow configuration of the default action cache path for #caches_action calls. *Rick Olson*
1772

1780 * Performance: patch cgi/session/pstore to require digest/md5 once rather than per #initialize. #7583 *Stefan Kaes*
1781
1782 * Cookie session store: ensure that new sessions doesn't reuse data from a deleted session in the same request. *Jeremy Kemper*
1783
1784 * Deprecation: verification with :redirect_to => :named_route shouldn't be deprecated. #7525 *Justin French*
1785
1786 * Cookie session store: raise ArgumentError when :session_key is blank. *Jeremy Kemper*
1787
1788 * 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*
1789
1790 * Consistent public/protected/private visibility for chained methods. #7813 *Dan Manges*
1791
1792 * Prefer MIME constants to strings. #7707 *Dan Kubb*
1793
1794 * 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*
1795
1796 \# 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]
1797 * Added Request#url that returns the complete URL used for the request *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1798
1799 * Extract dynamic scaffolding into a plugin. #7700 *Josh Peek*
1800
1801 * Added user/password options for url_for to add http authentication in a URL *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1802
1803 * Fixed that FormTagHelper#text_area_tag should disregard :size option if it's not a string *Brendon Davidson*
1804
1805 * 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*
1806
1807 * session_enabled? works with session :off. #6680 *Jonathan del Strother*
1808
1809 * Added :port and :host handling to UrlRewriter (which unified url_for usage, regardless of whether it's called in view or controller) #7616 *alancfrancis*
1810
1811 * Allow send_file/send_data to use a registered mime type as the :type parameter #7620 *jonathan*
1812
1813 * Allow routing requirements on map.resource(s) #7633 [quixoten]. Example:
1814
1815 map.resources :network_interfaces, :requirements => { :id => /^\d+\.\d+\.\d+\.\d+$/ }
1816
1817 * Cookie session store: empty and unchanged sessions don't write a cookie. *Jeremy Kemper*
1818
1819 * Added helper(:all) as a way to include all helpers from app/helpers/**/*.rb in ApplicationController *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1820
1821 * Integration tests: introduce methods for other HTTP methods. #6353 *caboose*
1822
1823 * Routing: better support for escaped values in route segments. #7544 [Chris
1824 Roos]
1825 * 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*
1826
1827 Example config/environment.rb:
1828 # Use an application-wide secret key and the default SHA1 message digest.
1829 config.action_controller.session = { :secret => "can't touch this" }
1830
1831 # Store a secret key per user and employ a stronger message digest.
1832 config.action_controller.session = {
1833 :digest => 'SHA512',
1834 :secret => Proc.new { User.current.secret_key }
1835 }
1836
1837 * 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.
1838
1839 * Added caching option to AssetTagHelper#stylesheet_link_tag and AssetTagHelper#javascript_include_tag [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
1840
1841 stylesheet_link_tag :all, :cache => true # when ActionController::Base.perform_caching is false =>
1842 <link href="/stylesheets/style1.css" media="screen" rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" />
1843 <link href="/stylesheets/styleB.css" media="screen" rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" />
1844 <link href="/stylesheets/styleX2.css" media="screen" rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" />
1845
1846 stylesheet_link_tag :all, :cache => true # when ActionController::Base.perform_caching is true =>
1847 <link href="/stylesheets/all.css" media="screen" rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" />
1848
1849 ...when caching is on, all.css is the concatenation of style1.css, styleB.css, and styleX2.css.
1850 Same deal for JavaScripts.
1851
1852 * 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*
1853
1854 * Added default mime type for CSS (Mime::CSS) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1855
1856 * 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*
1857
1858 * Added X-Runtime to all responses with the request run time *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1859
1860 * Add Mime::Type convenience methods to check the current mime type. *Rick Olson*
1861
1862 request.format.html? # => true if Mime::HTML
1863 request.format.jpg? # => true if Mime::JPG
1864
1865 \# ActionController sample usage:
1866 \# the session will be disabled for non html/ajax requests
1867 session :off, :if => Proc.new { |req| !(req.format.html? || req.format.js?) }
1868
1869 * Performance: patch cgi/session to require digest/md5 once rather than per #create_new_id. *Stefan Kaes*
1870
1871 * Add a :url_based_filename => true option to ActionController::Streaming::send_file, which allows URL-based filenames. *Thomas Fuchs*
1872
1873 * Fix that FormTagHelper#submit_tag using :disable_with should trigger the onsubmit handler of its form if available *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1874
1875 * Fix #render_file so that TemplateError is called with the correct params and you don't get the WSOD. *Rick Olson*
1876
1877 * 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
1878 superclass' view_paths. [Rick Olson]
1879 * Allow Controllers to have multiple view_paths instead of a single template_root. Closes #2754 *John Long*
1880
1881 * Add much-needed html-scanner tests. Fixed CDATA parsing bug. *Rick Olson*
1882
1883 * improve error message for Routing for named routes. Closes #7346 *Rob Sanheim*
1884
1885 * Added enhanced docs to routing assertions. Closes #7359 *Rob Sanheim*
1886
1887 * fix form_for example in ActionController::Resources documentation. Closes #7362 *gnarg*
1888
1889 * 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*
1890
1891 * Added FormBuilder#submit as a delegate for FormTagHelper#submit_tag *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1892
1893 * 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*
1894
1895 * Change the query parser to map empty GET params to "" rather than nil. Closes #5694. *Nicholas Seckar*
1896
1897 * date_select and datetime_select take a :default option. #7052 *Nik Wakelin*
1898 date_select "post", "written_on", :default => 3.days.from_now
1899 date_select "credit_card", "bill_due", :default => { :day => 20 }
1900
1901 * select :multiple => true suffixes the attribute name with [] unless already suffixed. #6977 *nik.kakelin, ben, julik*
1902
1903 * Improve routes documentation. #7095 *zackchandler*
1904
1905 * 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*
1906
1907 * Resource member routes require :id, eliminating the ambiguous overlap with collection routes. #7229 *dkubb*
1908
1909 * Remove deprecated assertions. *Jeremy Kemper*
1910
1911 * Change session restoration to allow namespaced models to be autoloaded. Closes #6348. *Nicholas Seckar*

1914
1915 * Fix overly greedy rescues when loading helpers. Fixes #6268. *Nicholas Seckar*
1916
1917 * Fixed NumberHelper#number_with_delimiter to use "." always for splitting the original number, not the delimiter parameter #7389 *ceefour*
1918

1944
1945 * Recognize the .txt extension as Mime::TEXT *Rick Olson*
1946
1947 * Fix parsing of array[] CGI parameters so extra empty values aren't included. #6252 *Nicholas Seckar, aiwilliams, brentrowland*

1972
1973 * 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*

2000
2001 GET /account
2002 GET /account;edit
2003 UPDATE /account
2004 DELETE /account
2005
2006 * 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*
2007 # application/json response with body 'Element.show({:name: "David"})'
2008 respond_to do |format|
2009 format.json { render :json => { :name => "David" }.to_json, :callback => 'Element.show' }
2010 end
2011
2012 * Makes :discard_year work without breaking multi-attribute parsing in AR. #1260, #3800 *sean@ardismg.com, jmartin@desertflood.com, stephen@touset.org, Bob Silva*
2013
2014 * Adds html id attribute to date helper elements. #1050, #1382 *mortonda@dgrmm.net, David North, Bob Silva*
2015
2016 * Add :index and @auto_index capability to model driven date/time selects. #847, #2655 *moriq, Doug Fales, Bob Silva*
2017
2018 * Add :order to datetime_select, select_datetime, and select_date. #1427 *Timothee Peignier, Patrick Lenz, Bob Silva*
2019
2020 * Added time_select to work with time values in models. Update scaffolding. #2489, #2833 *Justin Palmer, Andre Caum, Bob Silva*
2021
2022 * Added :include_seconds to select_datetime, datetime_select and time_select. #2998 *csn, Bob Silva*
2023
2024 * All date/datetime selects can now accept an array of month names with :use_month_names. Allows for localization. #363 *tomasj, Bob Silva*
2025
2026 * Adds :time_separator to select_time and :date_separator to select_datetime. Preserves BC. #3811 *Bob Silva*
2027
2028 * Added map.root as an alias for map.connect '' *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2029
2030 * 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:
2031
2032 GET /posts/5.xml | request.format => Mime::XML
2033 GET /posts/5.xhtml | request.format => Mime::HTML
2034 GET /posts/5 | request.format => request.accepts.first (usually Mime::HTML for browsers)
2035
2036 * Added the option for extension aliases to mime type registration [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example (already in the default routes):
2037
2038 Mime::Type.register "text/html", :html, %w( application/xhtml+xml ), %w( xhtml )
2039
2040 ...will respond on both .html and .xhtml.
2041
2042 * @response.redirect_url works with 201 Created responses: just return headers['Location'] rather than checking the response status. *Jeremy Kemper*
2043
2044 * Added CSV to Mime::SET so that respond_to csv will work *Cody Fauser*
2045
2046 * Fixed that HEAD should return the proper Content-Length header (that is, actually use @body.size, not just 0) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2047
2048 * 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*
2049
2050 * Update Routing to complain when :controller is not specified by a route. Closes #6669. *Nicholas Seckar*
2051
2052 * Ensure render_to_string cleans up after itself when an exception is raised. #6658 *Rob Sanheim*
2053
2054 * Extract template_changed_since? from compile_template? so plugins may override its behavior for non-file-based templates. #6651 *Jeff Barczewski*
2055
2056 * Update to Prototype and script.aculo.us [5579]. *Thomas Fuchs*
2057
2058 * simple_format helper doesn't choke on nil. #6644 *jerry426*
2059
2060 * Update to Prototype 1.5.0_rc2 [5550] which makes it work in Opera again *Thomas Fuchs*
2061
2062 * 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*
2063
2064 * ActionView::Base.erb_variable accessor names the buffer variable used to render templates. Defaults to _erbout; use _buf for erubis. *Rick Olson*
2065
2066 * assert_select_rjs :remove. *Dylan Egan*
2067
2068 * Always clear model associations from session. #4795 *sd@notso.net, andylien@gmail.com*
2069
2070 * Update to Prototype 1.5.0_rc2. *Sam Stephenson*
2071
2072 * Remove JavaScriptLiteral in favor of ActiveSupport::JSON::Variable. *Sam Stephenson*
2073
2074 * Sync ActionController::StatusCodes::STATUS_CODES with http://www.iana.org/assignments/http-status-codes. #6586 *dkubb*
2075
2076 * 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*
2077
2078 * assert_response supports symbolic status codes. #6569 *Kevin Clark*
2079 assert_response :ok
2080 assert_response :not_found
2081 assert_response :forbidden
2082
2083 * Cache parsed query parameters. #6559 *Stefan Kaes*
2084
2085 * Deprecate JavaScriptHelper#update_element_function, which is superseeded by RJS *Thomas Fuchs*
2086
2087 * pluralize helper interprets nil as zero. #6474 *Tim Pope*
2088
2089 * Fix invalid test fixture exposed by stricter Ruby 1.8.5 multipart parsing. #6524 *Bob Silva*
2090
2091 * Set ActionView::Base.default_form_builder once rather than passing the :builder option to every form or overriding the form helper methods. *Jeremy Kemper*
2092
2093 * Deprecate expire_matched_fragments. Use expire_fragment instead. #6535 *Bob Silva*
2094
2095 * 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*
2096
2097 * Deprecate start_form_tag and end_form_tag. Use form_tag / '</form>' from now on. *Rick Olson*
2098
2099 * Added block-usage to PrototypeHelper#form_remote_tag, document block-usage of FormTagHelper#form_tag *Rick Olson*
2100
2101 * Add a 0 margin/padding div around the hidden _method input tag that form_tag outputs. *Rick Olson*
2102
2103 * Added block-usage to TagHelper#content_tag [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
2104
2105 <% content_tag :div, :class => "strong" %>
2106 Hello world!
2107 <% end %>
2108
2109 Will output:
2110 <div class="strong">Hello world!</div>
2111
2112 * Deprecated UrlHelper#link_to_image and UrlHelper#link_to :post => true #6409 *Bob Silva*
2113
2114 * 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*
2115
2116 * Fixed that setting RAILS_ASSET_ID to "" should not add a trailing slash after assets #6454 *Bob Silva/chrismear*
2117
2118 * Force *_url named routes to show the host in ActionView *Rick Olson*
2119
2120 <%= url_for ... %> # no host
2121 <%= foo_path %> # no host
2122 <%= foo_url %> # host!
2123
2124 * Add support for converting blocks into function arguments to JavaScriptGenerator#call and JavaScriptProxy#call. *Sam Stephenson*
2125
2126 * Add JavaScriptGenerator#literal for wrapping a string in an object whose #to_json is the string itself. *Sam Stephenson*
2127
2128 * Add <%= escape_once html %> to escape html while leaving any currently escaped entities alone. Fix button_to double-escaping issue. *Rick Olson*
2129
2130 * Fix double-escaped entities, such as &amp;amp;, &amp;#123;, etc. *Rick Olson*
2131
2132 * Fix deprecation warnings when rendering the template error template. *Nicholas Seckar*
2133
2134 * Fix routing to correctly determine when generation fails. Closes #6300. [psross].
2135
2136 * Fix broken assert_generates when extra keys are being checked. *Jamis Buck*
2137
2138 * Replace KCODE checks with String#chars for truncate. Closes #6385 *Manfred Stienstra*
2139
2140 * 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.*
2141
2142 * Use String#chars in TextHelper::excerpt. Closes #6386 *Manfred Stienstra*
2143
2144 * Install named routes into ActionView::Base instead of proxying them to the view via helper_method. Closes #5932. *Nicholas Seckar*
2145
2146 * Update to latest Prototype and script.aculo.us trunk versions *Thomas Fuchs*
2147
2148 * Fix relative URL root matching problems. *Mark Imbriaco*
2149
2150 * Fix filter skipping in controller subclasses. #5949, #6297, #6299 *Martin Emde*
2151
2152 * 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*
2153
2154 * Rename test assertion to prevent shadowing. Closes #6306. *psross*
2155
2156 * Fixed that NumberHelper#number_to_delimiter should respect precision of higher than two digits #6231 *Philip Hallstrom*
2157
2158 * Fixed that FormHelper#radio_button didn't respect an :id being passed in #6266 *evansj*
2159
2160 * Added an html_options hash parameter to javascript_tag() and update_page_tag() helpers #6311 [tzaharia]. Example:
2161
2162 update_page_tag :defer => 'true' { |page| ... }
2163
2164 Gives:
2165
2166 <script defer="true" type="text/javascript">...</script>
2167
2168 Which is needed for dealing with the IE6 DOM when it's not yet fully loaded.
2169
2170 * Fixed that rescue template path shouldn't be hardcoded, then it's easier to hook in your own #6295 *Mike Naberezny*
2171
2172 * Fixed escaping of backslashes in JavaScriptHelper#escape_javascript #6302 *sven@c3d2.de*
2173
2174 * Fixed that some 500 rescues would cause 500's themselves because the response had not yet been generated #6329 *cmselmer*
2175
2176 * respond_to :html doesn't assume .rhtml. #6281 *Hampton Catlin*
2177
2178 * Fixed some deprecation warnings in ActionPack *Rick Olson*
2179
2180 * assert_select_rjs decodes escaped unicode chars since the Javascript generators encode them. #6240 *japgolly*
2181
2182 * Deprecation: @cookies, @headers, @request, @response will be removed after 1.2. Use the corresponding method instead. *Jeremy Kemper*
2183
2184 * 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:
2185
2186 head :status => 404 # expands to "404 Not Found"
2187 head :status => :not_found # expands to "404 Not Found"
2188 head :status => :created # expands to "201 Created"
2189
2190 * Add head(options = {}) for responses that have no body. [Jamis Buck]. Examples:
2191
2192 head :status => 404 # return an empty response with a 404 status
2193 head :location => person_path(@person), :status => 201
2194
2195 * Fix bug that kept any before_filter except the first one from being able to halt the before_filter chain. *Rick Olson*
2196
2197 * strip_links is case-insensitive. #6285 *tagoh, Bob Silva*
2198
2199 * Clear the cache of possible controllers whenever Routes are reloaded. *Nicholas Seckar*
2200
2201 * Filters overhaul including meantime filter support using around filters + blocks. #5949 *Martin Emde, Roman Le Negrate, Stefan Kaes, Jeremy Kemper*
2202
2203 * Update RJS render tests. *sam*
2204
2205 * Update CGI process to allow sessions to contain namespaced models. Closes #4638. *dfelstead@site5.com*
2206
2207 * Fix routing to respect user provided requirements and defaults when assigning default routing options (such as :action => 'index'). Closes #5950. *Nicholas Seckar*
2208
2209 * Rescue Errno::ECONNRESET to handle an unexpectedly closed socket connection. Improves SCGI reliability. #3368, #6226 *sdsykes, fhanshaw@vesaria.com*
2210
2211 * Added that respond_to blocks will automatically set the content type to be the same as is requested [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
2212
2213 respond_to do |format|
2214 format.html { render :text => "I'm being sent as text/html" }
2215 format.rss { render :text => "I'm being sent as application/rss+xml" }
2216 format.atom { render :text => "I'm being sent as application/xml", :content_type => Mime::XML }
2217 end
2218
2219 * Added utf-8 as the default charset for all renders. You can change this default using ActionController::Base.default_charset=(encoding) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2220
2221 * Added proper getters and setters for content type and charset [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example of what we used to do:
2222
2223 response.headers["Content-Type"] = "application/atom+xml; charset=utf-8"
2224
2225 ...now:
2226
2227 response.content_type = Mime::ATOM
2228 response.charset = "utf-8"
2229
2230 * Updated prototype.js to 1.5.0_rc1 with latest fixes. *Rick Olson*
2231
2232 - XPATH support
2233 - Make Form.getElements() return elements in the correct order
2234 - fix broken Form.serialize return
2235
2236 * Declare file extensions exempt from layouts. #6219 *brandon*
2237 Example: ActionController::Base.exempt_from_layout 'rpdf'
2238
2239 * Add chained replace/update support for assert_select_rjs *Rick Olson*
2240
2241 Given RJS like...
2242
2243 page['test1'].replace "<div id=\"1\">foo</div>"
2244 page['test2'].replace_html "<div id=\"2\">foo</div>"
2245
2246 Test it with...
2247
2248 assert_select_rjs :chained_replace
2249 assert_select_rjs :chained_replace, "test1"
2250
2251 assert_select_rjs :chained_replace_html
2252 assert_select_rjs :chained_replace_html, "test2"
2253
2254 * Load helpers in alphabetical order for consistency. Resolve cyclic javascript_helper dependency. #6132, #6178 *choonkeat@gmail.com*
2255
2256 * Skip params with empty names, such as the &=Save query string from <input type="submit"/>. #2569 *Manfred Stienstra, raphinou@yahoo.com*
2257
2258 * Fix assert_tag so that :content => "foo" does not match substrings, but only exact strings. Use :content => /foo/ to match substrings. #2799 *Eric Hodel*
2259
2260 * Add descriptive messages to the exceptions thrown by cgi_methods. #6091, #6103 *Nicholas Seckar, Bob Silva*
2261
2262 * Update JavaScriptGenerator#show/hide/toggle/remove to new Prototype syntax for multiple ids, #6068 *petermichaux@gmail.com*
2263
2264 * Update UrlWriter to support :only_path. *Nicholas Seckar, Dave Thomas*
2265
2266 * 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:
2267
2268 link_to("Hider", nil, :class => "hider_link") { |p| p[:something].hide }
2269
2270 ...can be written like this:
2271
2272 link_to("Hider", :class => "hider_link") { |p| p[:something].hide }
2273
2274 * Update to script.aculo.us 1.6.3 *Thomas Fuchs*
2275
2276 * Update to Prototype 1.5.0_rc1 *sam*
2277
2278 * Added access to nested attributes in RJS #4548 [richcollins@gmail.com]. Examples:
2279
2280 page['foo']['style'] # => $('foo').style;
2281 page['foo']['style']['color'] # => $('blank_slate').style.color;
2282 page['foo']['style']['color'] = 'red' # => $('blank_slate').style.color = 'red';
2283 page['foo']['style'].color = 'red' # => $('blank_slate').style.color = 'red';
2284
2285 * Fixed that AssetTagHelper#image_tag and others using compute_public_path should not modify the incoming source argument (closes #5102) *eule@space.ch*
2286
2287 * Deprecated the auto-appending of .png to AssetTagHelper#image_tag calls that doesn't have an extension *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2288
2289 * Fixed FormOptionsHelper#select to respect :selected value #5813
2290
2291 * Fixed TextHelper#simple_format to deal with multiple single returns within a single paragraph #5835 *moriq@moriq.com*
2292
2293 * Fixed TextHelper#pluralize to handle 1 as a string #5909 *rails@bencurtis.com*
2294
2295 * Improved resolution of DateHelper#distance_of_time_in_words for better precision #5994 *Bob Silva*
2296
2297 * 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*
2298
2299 * Integration tests: thoroughly test ActionController::Integration::Session. #6022 *Kevin Clark*
2300 (tests skipped unless you `gem install mocha`)
2301
2302 * Added deprecation language for pagination which will become a plugin by Rails 2.0 *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2303
2304 * Added deprecation language for in_place_editor and auto_complete_field that both pieces will become plugins by Rails 2.0 *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2305
2306 * Deprecated all of ActionController::Dependencies. All dependency loading is now handled from Active Support *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2307
2308 * Added assert_select* for CSS selector-based testing (deprecates assert_tag) #5936 *assaf.arkin@gmail.com*
2309
2310 * radio_button_tag generates unique id attributes. #3353 *Bob Silva, somekool@gmail.com*
2311
2312 * strip_tags passes through blank args such as nil or "". #2229, #6702 *duncan@whomwah.com, dharana*
2313
2314 * Cleanup assert_tag :children counting. #2181 *jamie@bravenet.com*
2315
2316 * button_to accepts :method so you can PUT and DELETE with it. #6005 *Dan Webb*
2317
2318 * Update sanitize text helper to strip plaintext tags, and <img src="javascript:bang">. *Rick Olson*
2319
2320 * Update routing documentation. Closes #6017 *Nathan Witmer*
2321
2322 * Add routing tests to assert that RoutingError is raised when conditions aren't met. Closes #6016 *Nathan Witmer*
2323
2324 * Deprecation: update docs. #5998 *Jakob Skjerning, Kevin Clark*
2325
2326 * Make auto_link parse a greater subset of valid url formats. *Jamis Buck*
2327
2328 * 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*
2329
2330 * Tighten rescue clauses. #5985 *james@grayproductions.net*
2331
2332 * Fix send_data documentation typo. #5982 *brad@madriska.com*
2333
2334 * Switch to using FormEncodedPairParser for parsing request parameters. *Nicholas Seckar, David Heinemeier Hansson*
2335
2336 * 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*
2337
2338 * Deprecation: test deprecated instance vars in partials. *Jeremy Kemper*
2339
2340 * Add UrlWriter to allow writing urls from Mailers and scripts. *Nicholas Seckar*
2341
2342 * Clean up and run the Active Record integration tests by default. #5854 *Kevin Clark, Jeremy Kemper*
2343
2344 * Correct example in cookies docs. #5832 *jessemerriman@warpmail.net*
2345
2346 * Updated to script.aculo.us 1.6.2 *Thomas Fuchs*
2347
2348 * Relax Routing's anchor pattern warning; it was preventing use of [^/] inside restrictions. *Nicholas Seckar*
2349
2350 * Add controller_paths variable to Routing. *Nicholas Seckar*
2351
2352 * Fix assert_redirected_to issue with named routes for module controllers. *Rick Olson*
2353
2354 * Tweak RoutingError message to show option diffs, not just missing named route significant keys. *Rick Olson*
2355
2356 * Invoke method_missing directly on hidden actions. Closes #3030. *Nicholas Seckar*
2357
2358 * Require Tempfile explicitly for TestUploadedFile due to changes in class auto loading. *Rick Olson*
2359
2360 * Add RoutingError exception when RouteSet fails to generate a path from a Named Route. *Rick Olson*
2361
2362 * Replace Reloadable with Reloadable::Deprecated. *Nicholas Seckar*
2363
2364 * Deprecation: check whether instance variables have been monkeyed with before assigning them to deprecation proxies. Raises a RuntimeError if so. *Jeremy Kemper*
2365
2366 * Add support for the param_name parameter to the auto_complete_field helper. #5026 *david.a.williams@gmail.com*
2367
2368 * 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*
2369
2370 * Make Routing noisy when an anchor regexp is assigned to a segment. #5674 *François Beausoleil*
2371
2372 * 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*
2373
2374 * Short documentation to mention use of Mime::Type.register. #5710 *choonkeat@gmail.com*
2375
2376 * Make controller_path available as an instance method. #5724 *jmckible@gmail.com*
2377
2378 * Update query parser to support adjacent hashes. *Nicholas Seckar*
2379
2380 * 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.*
2381
2382 * Restrict Request Method hacking with ?_method to POST requests. *Rick Olson*
2383
2384 * Fix bug when passing multiple options to SimplyRestful, like :new => { :preview => :get, :draft => :get }. *Rick Olson, Josh Susser, Lars Pind*
2385
2386 * Dup the options passed to map.resources so that multiple resources get the same options. *Rick Olson*
2387
2388 * Fixed the new_#{resource}_url route and added named route tests for Simply Restful. *Rick Olson*
2389
2390 * Added map.resources from the Simply Restful plugin [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples (the API has changed to use plurals!):
2391
2392 map.resources :messages
2393 map.resources :messages, :comments
2394 map.resources :messages, :new => { :preview => :post }
2395
2396 * Fixed that integration simulation of XHRs should set Accept header as well *Edward Frederick*
2397
2398 * TestRequest#reset_session should restore a TestSession, not a hash *Michael Koziarski*
2399
2400 * Don't search a load-path of '.' for controller files *Jamis Buck*
2401
2402 * Update integration.rb to require test_process explicitly instead of via Dependencies. *Nicholas Seckar*
2403
2404 * Fixed that you can still access the flash after the flash has been reset in reset_session. Closes #5584 *lmarlow*
2405
2406 * Allow form_for and fields_for to work with indexed form inputs. *Jeremy Kemper, Matt Lyon*
2407
2408 <% form_for 'post[]', @post do |f| -%>
2409 <% end -%>
2410
2411 * Remove leak in development mode by replacing define_method with module_eval. *Nicholas Seckar*
2412
2413 * Provide support for decimal columns to form helpers. Closes #5672. *Dave Thomas*
2414
2415 * Update documentation for erb trim syntax. #5651 *matt@mattmargolis.net*
2416

2418
2419 * Reset @html_document between requests so assert_tag works. #4810 *Jarkko Laine, easleydp@gmail.com*
2420
2421 * Update render :partial documentation. #5646 *matt@mattmargolis.net*
2422
2423 * Integration tests behave well with render_component. #4632 *edward.frederick@revolution.com, dev.rubyonrails@maxdunn.com*
2424
2425 * Added exception handling of missing layouts #5373 *chris@ozmm.org*
2426
2427 * Fixed that real files and symlinks should be treated the same when compiling templates #5438 *zachary@panandscan.com*
2428
2429 * Fixed that the flash should be reset when reset_session is called #5584 *Shugo Maeda*
2430
2431 * Added special case for "1 Byte" in NumberHelper#number_to_human_size #5593 *murpyh@rubychan.de*
2432
2433 * 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*
2434
2435 * Add route_name_path method to generate only the path for a named routes. For example, map.person will add person_path. *Nicholas Seckar*
2436
2437 * Avoid naming collision among compiled view methods. *Jeremy Kemper*
2438
2439 * Fix CGI extensions when they expect string but get nil in Windows. Closes #5276 *Mislav Marohnić*
2440
2441 * Determine the correct template_root for deeply nested components. #2841 *s.brink@web.de*
2442
2443 * Fix that routes with *path segments in the recall can generate URLs. *Rick Olson*
2444
2445 * Fix strip_links so that it doesn't hang on multiline <acronym> tags *Jamis Buck*
2446
2447 * Remove problematic control chars in rescue template. #5316 *Stefan Kaes*
2448
2449 * Make sure passed routing options are not mutated by routing code. #5314 *Blair Zajac*
2450
2451 * Make sure changing the controller from foo/bar to bing/bang does not change relative to foo. *Jamis Buck*
2452
2453 * Escape the path before routing recognition. #3671
2454
2455 * Make sure :id and friends are unescaped properly. #5275 *me@julik.nl*
2456
2457 * Fix documentation for with_routing to reflect new reality. #5281 *rramdas@gmail.com*
2458
2459 * 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*
2460
2461 * Added Mime::TEXT (text/plain) and Mime::ICS (text/calendar) as new default types *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2462
2463 * Added Mime::Type.register(string, symbol, synonyms = []) for adding new custom mime types [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example: Mime::Type.register("image/gif", :gif)
2464
2465 * Added support for Mime objects in render :content_type option [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example: render :text => some_atom, :content_type => Mime::ATOM
2466
2467 * Add :status option to send_data and send_file. Defaults to '200 OK'. #5243 *Manfred Stienstra <m.stienstra@fngtps.com>*
2468
2469 * 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*
2470
2471 map.connect '/foo/:id', :controller => '...', :action => '...'
2472 map.connect '/foo/:id.:format', :controller => '...', :action => '...'
2473 map.connect '/foo/:id', ..., :conditions => { :method => :get }
2474
2475 * Cope with missing content type and length headers. Parse parameters from multipart and urlencoded request bodies only. *Jeremy Kemper*
2476
2477 * Accept multipart PUT parameters. #5235 *guy.naor@famundo.com*
2478
2479 * 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:
2480
2481 class WeblogController < ActionController::Base
2482 def index
2483 @posts = Post.find :all
2484
2485 respond_to do |format|
2486 format.html
2487 format.xml { render :xml => @posts.to_xml }
2488 format.rss { render :action => "feed.rxml" }
2489 end
2490 end
2491 end
2492
2493 \# returns HTML when requested by a browser, since the browser
2494 \# has the HTML mimetype at the top of its priority list
2495 Accept: text/html
2496 GET /weblog
2497
2498 \# returns the XML
2499 Accept: application/xml
2500 GET /weblog
2501
2502 \# returns the HTML
2503 Accept: application/xml
2504 GET /weblog.html
2505
2506 \# returns the XML
2507 Accept: text/html
2508 GET /weblog.xml
2509
2510 All this relies on the fact that you have a route that includes .:format.
2511
2512 * 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*
2513
2514 * 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*
2515
2516 * follow_redirect doesn't complain about being redirected to the same controller. #5153 *dymo@mk.ukrtelecom.ua*
2517
2518 * Add layout attribute to response object with the name of the layout that was rendered, or nil if none rendered. *Kevin Clark*
2519
2520 * Fix NoMethodError when parsing params like &&. *Adam Greenfield*
2521
2522 * Fix flip flopped logic in docs for url_for's :only_path option. Closes #4998. *esad@esse.at*
2523
2524 * form.text_area handles the :size option just like the original text_area (:size => '60x10' becomes cols="60" rows="10"). *Jeremy Kemper*
2525
2526 * Excise ingrown code from FormOptionsHelper#options_for_select. #5008 *anonymous*
2527
2528 * Small fix in routing to allow dynamic routes (broken after [4242]) *Rick Olson*
2529
2530 map.connect '*path', :controller => 'files', :action => 'show'
2531
2532 * Replace alias method chaining with Module#alias_method_chain. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
2533
2534 * Replace Ruby's deprecated append_features in favor of included. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
2535
2536 * Use #flush between switching from #write to #syswrite. Closes #4907. *Blair Zajac <blair@orcaware.com>*
2537
2538 * Documentation fix: integration test scripts don't require integration_test. Closes #4914. *Frederick Ros <sl33p3r@free.fr>*
2539
2540 * ActionController::Base Summary documentation rewrite. Closes #4900. *Kevin Clark*
2541
2542 * Fix text_helper.rb documentation rendering. Closes #4725. *Frederick Ros*
2543
2544 * Fixes bad rendering of JavaScriptMacrosHelper rdoc (closes #4910) *Frederick Ros*
2545
2546 * Allow error_messages_for to report errors for multiple objects, as well as support for customizing the name of the object in the error summary header. Closes #4186. *andrew@redlinesoftware.com, Marcel Molina Jr.*
2547
2548 error_messages_for :account, :user, :subscription, :object_name => :account
2549
2550 * Enhance documentation for setting headers in integration tests. Skip auto HTTP prepending when its already there. Closes #4079. *Rick Olson*
2551
2552 * Documentation for AbstractRequest. Closes #4895. *Kevin Clark*
2553
2554 * Refactor various InstanceTag instance method to class methods. Closes #4800. *Stefan Kaes*
2555
2556 * Remove all remaining references to @params in the documentation. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
2557
2558 * Add documentation for redirect_to :back's RedirectBackError exception. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
2559
2560 * Update layout and content_for documentation to use yield rather than magic @content_for instance variables. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
2561
2562 * Fix assert_redirected_to tests according to real-world usage. Also, don't fail if you add an extra :controller option: *Rick Olson*
2563
2564 redirect_to :action => 'new'
2565 assert_redirected_to :controller => 'monkeys', :action => 'new'
2566
2567 * Cache CgiRequest#request_parameters so that multiple calls don't re-parse multipart data. *Rick Olson*
2568
2569 * Diff compared routing options. Allow #assert_recognizes to take a second arg as a hash to specify optional request method *Rick Olson*
2570
2571 assert_recognizes({:controller => 'users', :action => 'index'}, 'users')
2572 assert_recognizes({:controller => 'users', :action => 'create'}, {:path => 'users', :method => :post})
2573
2574 * Diff compared options with #assert_redirected_to *Rick Olson*
2575
2576 * Add support in routes for semicolon delimited "subpaths", like /books/:id;:action *Jamis Buck*
2577
2578 * Change link_to_function and button_to_function to (optionally) take an update_page block instead of a JavaScript string. Closes #4804. *zraii@comcast.net, Sam Stephenson*
2579
2580 * Fixed that remote_form_for can leave out the object parameter and default to the instance variable of the object_name, just like form_for *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2581
2582 * 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*
2583
2584 * 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*
2585 ex. verify :only => :speak, :method => :post,
2586 :render => { :status => 405, :text => "Must be post" },
2587 :add_headers => { "Allow" => "POST" }
2588
2589 * Added ActionController.filter_parameter_logging that makes it easy to remove passwords, credit card numbers, and other sensitive information from being logged when a request is handled #1897 *jeremye@bsa.ca.gov*
2590
2591

2664
2665 * 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*
2666
2667 * Ensure render :json => ... skips the layout. #6808 *Josh Peek*
2668

2672
2673 * Correctly report which filter halted the chain. #6699 *Martin Emde*
2674
2675 * 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*
2676 # application/json response with body 'Element.show({:name: "David"})'
2677 respond_to do |format|
2678 format.json { render :json => { :name => "David" }.to_json, :callback => 'Element.show' }
2679 end
2680
2681 * Makes :discard_year work without breaking multi-attribute parsing in AR. #1260, #3800 *sean@ardismg.com, jmartin@desertflood.com, stephen@touset.org, Bob Silva*
2682
2683 * Adds html id attribute to date helper elements. #1050, #1382 *mortonda@dgrmm.net, David North, Bob Silva*
2684
2685 * Add :index and @auto_index capability to model driven date/time selects. #847, #2655 *moriq, Doug Fales, Bob Silva*
2686
2687 * Add :order to datetime_select, select_datetime, and select_date. #1427 *Timothee Peignier, Patrick Lenz, Bob Silva*
2688

2692
2693 * All date/datetime selects can now accept an array of month names with :use_month_names. Allows for localization. #363 *tomasj, Bob Silva*
2694
2695 * Adds :time_separator to select_time and :date_separator to select_datetime. Preserves BC. #3811 *Bob Silva*
2696
2697 * @response.redirect_url works with 201 Created responses: just return headers['Location'] rather than checking the response status. *Jeremy Kemper*
2698
2699 * Fixed that HEAD should return the proper Content-Length header (that is, actually use @body.size, not just 0) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2700
2701 * 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*
2702
2703
2704 ## 1.13.0 RC1 (r5619, November 22nd, 2006) ##

2709
2710 * Update to Prototype and script.aculo.us [5579]. *Sam Stephenson, Thomas Fuchs*
2711
2712 * simple_format helper doesn't choke on nil. #6644 *jerry426*
2713
2714 * 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*
2715
2716 * Deprecate standalone components. *Jeremy Kemper*
2717
2718 * Always clear model associations from session. #4795 *sd@notso.net, andylien@gmail.com*
2719
2720 * Remove JavaScriptLiteral in favor of ActiveSupport::JSON::Variable. *Sam Stephenson*
2721

2727 assert_response :ok
2728 assert_response :not_found
2729 assert_response :forbidden
2730
2731 * Cache parsed query parameters. #6559 *Stefan Kaes*
2732
2733 * Deprecate JavaScriptHelper#update_element_function, which is superseeded by RJS *Thomas Fuchs*
2734
2735 * Fix invalid test fixture exposed by stricter Ruby 1.8.5 multipart parsing. #6524 *Bob Silva*
2736
2737 * Set ActionView::Base.default_form_builder once rather than passing the :builder option to every form or overriding the form helper methods. *Jeremy Kemper*
2738
2739 * Deprecate expire_matched_fragments. Use expire_fragment instead. #6535 *Bob Silva*
2740
2741 * Deprecate start_form_tag and end_form_tag. Use form_tag / '</form>' from now on. *Rick Olson*
2742
2743 * Added block-usage to PrototypeHelper#form_remote_tag, document block-usage of FormTagHelper#form_tag *Rick Olson*
2744
2745 * Add a 0 margin/padding div around the hidden _method input tag that form_tag outputs. *Rick Olson*
2746
2747 * Added block-usage to TagHelper#content_tag [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
2748
2749 <% content_tag :div, :class => "strong" %>
2750 Hello world!
2751 <% end %>
2752
2753 Will output:
2754 <div class="strong">Hello world!</div>
2755
2756 * Deprecated UrlHelper#link_to_image and UrlHelper#link_to :post => true #6409 *Bob Silva*
2757
2758 * 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*
2759
2760 * Fixed that setting RAILS_ASSET_ID to "" should not add a trailing slash after assets #6454 *Bob Silva/chrismear*
2761
2762 * Force *_url named routes to show the host in ActionView *Rick Olson*
2763
2764 <%= url_for ... %> # no host
2765 <%= foo_path %> # no host
2766 <%= foo_url %> # host!
2767
2768 * Add support for converting blocks into function arguments to JavaScriptGenerator#call and JavaScriptProxy#call. *Sam Stephenson*
2769
2770 * Add JavaScriptGenerator#literal for wrapping a string in an object whose #to_json is the string itself. *Sam Stephenson*
2771
2772 * Add <%= escape_once html %> to escape html while leaving any currently escaped entities alone. Fix button_to double-escaping issue. *Rick Olson*
2773
2774 * Fix double-escaped entities, such as &amp;amp;, &amp;#123;, etc. *Rick Olson*
2775
2776 * Fix routing to correctly determine when generation fails. Closes #6300. [psross].

2781
2782 * 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.*
2783
2784 * Use String#chars in TextHelper::excerpt. Closes #6386 *Manfred Stienstra*
2785
2786 * Fix relative URL root matching problems. *Mark Imbriaco*
2787
2788 * Fix filter skipping in controller subclasses. #5949, #6297, #6299 *Martin Emde*
2789
2790 * 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*
2791
2792 * Rename test assertion to prevent shadowing. Closes #6306. *psross*
2793
2794 * Fixed that NumberHelper#number_to_delimiter should respect precision of higher than two digits #6231 *Philip Hallstrom*
2795
2796 * Fixed that FormHelper#radio_button didn't respect an :id being passed in #6266 *evansj*
2797
2798 * Added an html_options hash parameter to javascript_tag() and update_page_tag() helpers #6311 [tzaharia]. Example:
2799
2800 update_page_tag :defer => 'true' { |page| ... }
2801
2802 Gives:
2803
2804 <script defer="true" type="text/javascript">...</script>
2805
2806 Which is needed for dealing with the IE6 DOM when it's not yet fully loaded.
2807
2808 * Fixed that rescue template path shouldn't be hardcoded, then it's easier to hook in your own #6295 *Mike Naberezny*
2809
2810 * Fixed escaping of backslashes in JavaScriptHelper#escape_javascript #6302 *sven@c3d2.de*
2811
2812 * Fixed that some 500 rescues would cause 500's themselves because the response had not yet been generated #6329 *cmselmer*
2813
2814 * respond_to :html doesn't assume .rhtml. #6281 *Hampton Catlin*
2815
2816 * Fixed some deprecation warnings in ActionPack *Rick Olson*
2817
2818 * assert_select_rjs decodes escaped unicode chars since the Javascript generators encode them. #6240 *japgolly*
2819
2820 * Deprecation: @cookies, @headers, @request, @response will be removed after 1.2. Use the corresponding method instead. *Jeremy Kemper*
2821
2822 * 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:
2823
2824 head :status => 404 # expands to "404 Not Found"
2825 head :status => :not_found # expands to "404 Not Found"
2826 head :status => :created # expands to "201 Created"
2827
2828 * Add head(options = {}) for responses that have no body. [Jamis Buck]. Examples:
2829
2830 head :status => 404 # return an empty response with a 404 status
2831 head :location => person_path(@person), :status => 201
2832
2833 * Fix bug that kept any before_filter except the first one from being able to halt the before_filter chain. *Rick Olson*
2834
2835 * strip_links is case-insensitive. #6285 *tagoh, Bob Silva*
2836
2837 * Clear the cache of possible controllers whenever Routes are reloaded. *Nicholas Seckar*
2838
2839 * Filters overhaul including meantime filter support using around filters + blocks. #5949 *Martin Emde, Roman Le Negrate, Stefan Kaes, Jeremy Kemper*
2840
2841 * Update CGI process to allow sessions to contain namespaced models. Closes #4638. *dfelstead@site5.com*
2842
2843 * Fix routing to respect user provided requirements and defaults when assigning default routing options (such as :action => 'index'). Closes #5950. *Nicholas Seckar*
2844
2845 * Rescue Errno::ECONNRESET to handle an unexpectedly closed socket connection. Improves SCGI reliability. #3368, #6226 *sdsykes, fhanshaw@vesaria.com*
2846
2847 * Added that respond_to blocks will automatically set the content type to be the same as is requested [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
2848
2849 respond_to do |format|
2850 format.html { render :text => "I'm being sent as text/html" }
2851 format.rss { render :text => "I'm being sent as application/rss+xml" }
2852 format.atom { render :text => "I'm being sent as application/xml", :content_type => Mime::XML }
2853 end
2854
2855 * Added utf-8 as the default charset for all renders. You can change this default using ActionController::Base.default_charset=(encoding) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2856
2857 * Added proper getters and setters for content type and charset [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example of what we used to do:
2858
2859 response.headers["Content-Type"] = "application/atom+xml; charset=utf-8"
2860
2861 ...now:
2862
2863 response.content_type = Mime::ATOM
2864 response.charset = "utf-8"
2865
2866 * Declare file extensions exempt from layouts. #6219 *brandon*
2867 Example: ActionController::Base.exempt_from_layout 'rpdf'
2868
2869 * Add chained replace/update support for assert_select_rjs *Rick Olson*
2870
2871 Given RJS like...
2872
2873 page['test1'].replace "<div id=\"1\">foo</div>"
2874 page['test2'].replace_html "<div id=\"2\">foo</div>"
2875
2876 Test it with...
2877
2878 assert_select_rjs :chained_replace
2879 assert_select_rjs :chained_replace, "test1"
2880
2881 assert_select_rjs :chained_replace_html
2882 assert_select_rjs :chained_replace_html, "test2"
2883
2884 * Load helpers in alphabetical order for consistency. Resolve cyclic javascript_helper dependency. #6132, #6178 *choonkeat@gmail.com*
2885
2886 * Skip params with empty names, such as the &=Save query string from <input type="submit"/>. #2569 *Manfred Stienstra, raphinou@yahoo.com*
2887
2888 * Fix assert_tag so that :content => "foo" does not match substrings, but only exact strings. Use :content => /foo/ to match substrings. #2799 *Eric Hodel*
2889
2890 * Update JavaScriptGenerator#show/hide/toggle/remove to new Prototype syntax for multiple ids, #6068 *petermichaux@gmail.com*
2891
2892 * Update UrlWriter to support :only_path. *Nicholas Seckar, Dave Thomas*
2893
2894 * 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:
2895
2896 link_to("Hider", nil, :class => "hider_link") { |p| p[:something].hide }
2897
2898 ...can be written like this:
2899
2900 link_to("Hider", :class => "hider_link") { |p| p[:something].hide }
2901
2902 * Added access to nested attributes in RJS #4548 [richcollins@gmail.com]. Examples:
2903
2904 page['foo']['style'] # => $('foo').style;
2905 page['foo']['style']['color'] # => $('blank_slate').style.color;
2906 page['foo']['style']['color'] = 'red' # => $('blank_slate').style.color = 'red';
2907 page['foo']['style'].color = 'red' # => $('blank_slate').style.color = 'red';
2908
2909 * Fixed that AssetTagHelper#image_tag and others using compute_public_path should not modify the incoming source argument (closes #5102) *eule@space.ch*
2910
2911 * Deprecated the auto-appending of .png to AssetTagHelper#image_tag calls that doesn't have an extension *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2912
2913 * Fixed FormOptionsHelper#select to respect :selected value #5813
2914
2915 * Fixed TextHelper#simple_format to deal with multiple single returns within a single paragraph #5835 *moriq@moriq.com*
2916
2917 * Fixed TextHelper#pluralize to handle 1 as a string #5909 *rails@bencurtis.com*
2918
2919 * Improved resolution of DateHelper#distance_of_time_in_words for better precision #5994 *Bob Silva*
2920
2921 * 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*
2922
2923 * Added deprecation language for pagination which will become a plugin by Rails 2.0 *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2924
2925 * Added deprecation language for in_place_editor and auto_complete_field that both pieces will become plugins by Rails 2.0 *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2926
2927 * Deprecated all of ActionController::Dependencies. All dependency loading is now handled from Active Support *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2928
2929 * Added assert_select* for CSS selector-based testing (deprecates assert_tag) #5936 *assaf.arkin@gmail.com*
2930
2931 * radio_button_tag generates unique id attributes. #3353 *Bob Silva, somekool@gmail.com*
2932
2933 * strip_tags passes through blank args such as nil or "". #2229, #6702 *duncan@whomwah.com, dharana*
2934
2935 * Cleanup assert_tag :children counting. #2181 *jamie@bravenet.com*
2936
2937 * button_to accepts :method so you can PUT and DELETE with it. #6005 *Dan Webb*
2938
2939 * Update sanitize text helper to strip plaintext tags, and <img src="javascript:bang">. *Rick Olson*
2940
2941 * Add routing tests to assert that RoutingError is raised when conditions aren't met. Closes #6016 *Nathan Witmer*
2942
2943 * Make auto_link parse a greater subset of valid url formats. *Jamis Buck*
2944
2945 * 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*
2946
2947 * Switch to using FormEncodedPairParser for parsing request parameters. *Nicholas Seckar, David Heinemeier Hansson*
2948
2949 * 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*
2950
2951 * Deprecation: test deprecated instance vars in partials. *Jeremy Kemper*
2952
2953 * Add UrlWriter to allow writing urls from Mailers and scripts. *Nicholas Seckar*
2954
2955 * Relax Routing's anchor pattern warning; it was preventing use of [^/] inside restrictions. *Nicholas Seckar*
2956
2957 * Add controller_paths variable to Routing. *Nicholas Seckar*
2958
2959 * Fix assert_redirected_to issue with named routes for module controllers. *Rick Olson*
2960
2961 * Tweak RoutingError message to show option diffs, not just missing named route significant keys. *Rick Olson*
2962
2963 * Invoke method_missing directly on hidden actions. Closes #3030. *Nicholas Seckar*
2964
2965 * Add RoutingError exception when RouteSet fails to generate a path from a Named Route. *Rick Olson*
2966
2967 * Replace Reloadable with Reloadable::Deprecated. *Nicholas Seckar*
2968
2969 * Deprecation: check whether instance variables have been monkeyed with before assigning them to deprecation proxies. Raises a RuntimeError if so. *Jeremy Kemper*
2970
2971 * Add support for the param_name parameter to the auto_complete_field helper. #5026 *david.a.williams@gmail.com*
2972
2973 * 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*
2974
2975 * Make Routing noisy when an anchor regexp is assigned to a segment. #5674 *François Beausoleil*
2976
2977 * 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*
2978
2979 * Make controller_path available as an instance method. #5724 *jmckible@gmail.com*
2980
2981 * Update query parser to support adjacent hashes. *Nicholas Seckar*
2982
2983 * 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.*
2984
2985 * Restrict Request Method hacking with ?_method to POST requests. *Rick Olson*
2986
2987 * Fixed the new_#{resource}_url route and added named route tests for Simply Restful. *Rick Olson*
2988
2989 * Added map.resources from the Simply Restful plugin [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples (the API has changed to use plurals!):
2990
2991 map.resources :messages
2992 map.resources :messages, :comments
2993 map.resources :messages, :new => { :preview => :post }
2994
2995 * Fixed that integration simulation of XHRs should set Accept header as well *Edward Frederick*
2996
2997 * TestRequest#reset_session should restore a TestSession, not a hash *Michael Koziarski*
2998
2999 * Don't search a load-path of '.' for controller files *Jamis Buck*
3000
3001 * Update integration.rb to require test_process explicitly instead of via Dependencies. *Nicholas Seckar*
3002
3003 * Fixed that you can still access the flash after the flash has been reset in reset_session. Closes #5584 *lmarlow*
3004
3005 * Allow form_for and fields_for to work with indexed form inputs. *Jeremy Kemper, Matt Lyon*
3006
3007 <% form_for 'post[]', @post do |f| -%>
3008 <% end -%>
3009
3010 * Remove leak in development mode by replacing define_method with module_eval. *Nicholas Seckar*
3011
3012 * Provide support for decimal columns to form helpers. Closes #5672. *Dave Thomas*
3013
3014 * Pass :id => nil or :class => nil to error_messages_for to supress that html attribute. #3586 *olivier_ansaldi@yahoo.com*
3015
3016 * Reset @html_document between requests so assert_tag works. #4810 *Jarkko Laine, easleydp@gmail.com*
3017
3018 * Integration tests behave well with render_component. #4632 *edward.frederick@revolution.com, dev.rubyonrails@maxdunn.com*
3019
3020 * Added exception handling of missing layouts #5373 *chris@ozmm.org*
3021
3022 * Fixed that real files and symlinks should be treated the same when compiling templates #5438 *zachary@panandscan.com*
3023
3024 * Fixed that the flash should be reset when reset_session is called #5584 *Shugo Maeda*
3025
3026 * Added special case for "1 Byte" in NumberHelper#number_to_human_size #5593 *murpyh@rubychan.de*
3027
3028 * 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*
3029
3030 * Add route_name_path method to generate only the path for a named routes. For example, map.person will add person_path. *Nicholas Seckar*
3031
3032 * Avoid naming collision among compiled view methods. *Jeremy Kemper*
3033
3034 * Fix CGI extensions when they expect string but get nil in Windows. Closes #5276 *Mislav Marohnić*
3035
3036 * Determine the correct template_root for deeply nested components. #2841 *s.brink@web.de*
3037
3038 * Fix that routes with *path segments in the recall can generate URLs. *Rick Olson*
3039
3040 * Fix strip_links so that it doesn't hang on multiline <acronym> tags *Jamis Buck*
3041
3042 * Remove problematic control chars in rescue template. #5316 *Stefan Kaes*
3043
3044 * Make sure passed routing options are not mutated by routing code. #5314 *Blair Zajac*
3045
3046 * Make sure changing the controller from foo/bar to bing/bang does not change relative to foo. *Jamis Buck*
3047
3048 * Escape the path before routing recognition. #3671
3049
3050 * Make sure :id and friends are unescaped properly. #5275 *me@julik.nl*
3051
3052 * 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*
3053
3054 * Added Mime::TEXT (text/plain) and Mime::ICS (text/calendar) as new default types *David Heinemeier Hansson*
3055
3056 * Added Mime::Type.register(string, symbol, synonyms = []) for adding new custom mime types [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example: Mime::Type.register("image/gif", :gif)
3057
3058 * Added support for Mime objects in render :content_type option [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example: render :text => some_atom, :content_type => Mime::ATOM
3059
3060 * Add :status option to send_data and send_file. Defaults to '200 OK'. #5243 *Manfred Stienstra <m.stienstra@fngtps.com>*
3061
3062 * 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*
3063
3064 map.connect '/foo/:id', :controller => '...', :action => '...'
3065 map.connect '/foo/:id.:format', :controller => '...', :action => '...'
3066 map.connect '/foo/:id', ..., :conditions => { :method => :get }
3067
3068 * Cope with missing content type and length headers. Parse parameters from multipart and urlencoded request bodies only. *Jeremy Kemper*
3069
3070 * Accept multipart PUT parameters. #5235 *guy.naor@famundo.com*
3071
3072 * 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:
3073
3074 class WeblogController < ActionController::Base
3075 def index
3076 @posts = Post.find :all
3077
3078 respond_to do |format|
3079 format.html
3080 format.xml { render :xml => @posts.to_xml }
3081 format.rss { render :action => "feed.rxml" }
3082 end
3083 end
3084 end
3085
3086 \# returns HTML when requested by a browser, since the browser
3087 \# has the HTML mimetype at the top of its priority list
3088 Accept: text/html
3089 GET /weblog
3090
3091 \# returns the XML
3092 Accept: application/xml
3093 GET /weblog
3094
3095 \# returns the HTML
3096 Accept: application/xml
3097 GET /weblog.html
3098
3099 \# returns the XML
3100 Accept: text/html
3101 GET /weblog.xml
3102
3103 All this relies on the fact that you have a route that includes .:format.
3104
3105 * 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*
3106
3107 * 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*
3108
3109 * follow_redirect doesn't complain about being redirected to the same controller. #5153 *dymo@mk.ukrtelecom.ua*
3110
3111 * Add layout attribute to response object with the name of the layout that was rendered, or nil if none rendered. *Kevin Clark*
3112
3113 * Fix NoMethodError when parsing params like &&. *Adam Greenfield*
3114
3115 * form.text_area handles the :size option just like the original text_area (:size => '60x10' becomes cols="60" rows="10"). *Jeremy Kemper*
3116
3117 * Excise ingrown code from FormOptionsHelper#options_for_select. #5008 *anonymous*
3118
3119 * Small fix in routing to allow dynamic routes (broken after [4242]) *Rick Olson*
3120
3121 map.connect '*path', :controller => 'files', :action => 'show'
3122
3123 * Use #flush between switching from #write to #syswrite. Closes #4907. *Blair Zajac <blair@orcaware.com>*
3124
3125 * Allow error_messages_for to report errors for multiple objects, as well as support for customizing the name of the object in the error summary header. Closes #4186. *andrew@redlinesoftware.com, Marcel Molina Jr.*
3126
3127 error_messages_for :account, :user, :subscription, :object_name => :account
3128
3129 * Fix assert_redirected_to tests according to real-world usage. Also, don't fail if you add an extra :controller option: *Rick Olson*
3130
3131 redirect_to :action => 'new'
3132 assert_redirected_to :controller => 'monkeys', :action => 'new'
3133
3134 * Diff compared routing options. Allow #assert_recognizes to take a second arg as a hash to specify optional request method *Rick Olson*
3135
3136 assert_recognizes({:controller => 'users', :action => 'index'}, 'users')
3137 assert_recognizes({:controller => 'users', :action => 'create'}, {:path => 'users', :method => :post})
3138
3139 * Diff compared options with #assert_redirected_to *Rick Olson*
3140
3141 * Add support in routes for semicolon delimited "subpaths", like /books/:id;:action *Jamis Buck*
3142
3143 * Change link_to_function and button_to_function to (optionally) take an update_page block instead of a JavaScript string. Closes #4804. *zraii@comcast.net, Sam Stephenson*
3144
3145 * 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*
3146
3147 * 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*
3148 ex. verify :only => :speak, :method => :post,
3149 :render => { :status => 405, :text => "Must be post" },
3150 :add_headers => { "Allow" => "POST" }

3155 * Updated security fix
3156
3157
3158 ## 1.12.4 (August 8th, 2006) ##
