178 <%= form_for @post do |f| %>

josevalim authored
187 * Deprecated implied layout lookup in controllers whose parent had a explicit layout set:
188
189 class ApplicationController
190 layout "application"
191 end
192
193 class PostsController < ApplicationController
194 end
195
196 In the example above, Posts controller will no longer automatically look up for a posts layout.
197
198 If you need this functionality you could either remove `layout "application"` from ApplicationController or explicitly set it to nil in PostsController. *José Valim*
199
18ceed2 @sikachu Allow layout fallback when using `layout` method
sikachu authored
200 * Rails will now use your default layout (such as "layouts/application") when you specify a layout with `:only` and `:except` condition, and those conditions fail. *Prem Sichanugrist*
201
202 For example, consider this snippet:
203
204 class CarsController
205 layout 'single_car', :only => :show
206 end
207
208 Rails will use 'layouts/single_car' when a request comes in `:show` action, and use 'layouts/application' (or 'layouts/cars', if exists) when a request comes in for any other actions.

josevalim authored
242 It's possible to override `show_detailed_exceptions?` in controllers to specify which requests should provide debugging information on errors. The default value is now false, meaning local requests in production will no longer show the detailed exceptions page unless `show_detailed_exceptions?` is overridden and set to `request.local?`.

281272a @jonleighton Convert CHANGELOGs to Markdown format.
jonleighton authored
244 * Responders now return 204 No Content for API requests without a response body (as in the new scaffold) *José Valim*
245
246 * 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*
247
248 * Limit the number of options for select_year to 1000.
249
250 Pass the :max_years_allowed option to set your own limit.
251
252 *Libo Cannici*
253
254 * Passing formats or handlers to render :template and friends is deprecated. For example: *Nick Sutterer & José Valim*
255
256 render :template => "foo.html.erb"
257
258 Instead, you can provide :handlers and :formats directly as option:
259 render :template => "foo", :formats => [:html, :js], :handlers => :erb
260
261 * Changed log level of warning for missing CSRF token from :debug to :warn. *Mike Dillon*
262
263 * 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*
264
265 So instead of having to do this:
266
267 @items.each do |item|
268 content_tag_for(:li, item) do
269 Title: <%= item.title %>
270 end
271 end
272
273 You can now do this:
274
275 content_tag_for(:li, @items) do |item|
276 Title: <%= item.title %>
277 end
278
279 * send_file now guess the mime type *Esad Hajdarevic*
280
281 * Mime type entries for PDF, ZIP and other formats were added *Esad Hajdarevic*
282
283 * Generate hidden input before select with :multiple option set to true.
284 This is useful when you rely on the fact that when no options is set,
285 the state of select will be sent to rails application. Without hidden field
286 nothing is sent according to HTML spec *Bogdan Gusiev*
287
288 * Refactor ActionController::TestCase cookies *Andrew White*
289
290 Assigning cookies for test cases should now use cookies[], e.g:
291
292 cookies[:email] = 'user@example.com'
293 get :index
294 assert_equal 'user@example.com', cookies[:email]
295
296 To clear the cookies, use clear, e.g:
297
298 cookies.clear
299 get :index
300 assert_nil cookies[:email]
301
302 We now no longer write out HTTP_COOKIE and the cookie jar is
303 persistent between requests so if you need to manipulate the environment
304 for your test you need to do it before the cookie jar is created.

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

353 * Implement a workaround for a bug in ruby-1.9.3p0 where an error would be raised
354 while attempting to convert a template from one encoding to another.
355
356 Please see http://redmine.ruby-lang.org/issues/5564 for details of the bug.
357
358 The workaround is to load all conversions into memory ahead of time, and will
359 only happen if the ruby version is *exactly* 1.9.3p0. The hope is obviously that
360 the underlying problem will be resolved in the next patchlevel release of
361 1.9.3.

367 ## Rails 3.1.1 (unreleased) ##
368
369 * javascript_path and stylesheet_path now refer to /assets if asset pipelining
370 is on. [Santiago Pastorino]
371 * button_to support form option. Now you're able to pass for example
372 'data-type' => 'json'. [ihower]
373 * image_path and image_tag should use /assets if asset pipelining is turned
374 on. Closes #3126 [Santiago Pastorino and christos]
375 * Avoid use of existing precompiled assets during rake assets:precompile run.
376 Closes #3119 [Guillermo Iguaran]
377 * Copy assets to nondigested filenames too *Santiago Pastorino*
378
379 * Give precedence to `config.digest = false` over the existence of
380 manifest.yml asset digests [christos]
381 * escape options for the stylesheet_link_tag method *Alexey Vakhov*
382
383 * Re-launch assets:precompile task using (Rake.)ruby instead of Kernel.exec so
384 it works on Windows [cablegram]
385 * env var passed to process shouldn't be modified in process method. [Santiago
386 Pastorino]
387 * `rake assets:precompile` loads the application but does not initialize
388 it.
389 To the app developer, this means configuration add in
390 config/initializers/* will not be executed.
391 Plugins developers need to special case their initializers that are
392 meant to be run in the assets group by adding :group => :assets. *José Valim*
393
394 * Sprockets uses config.assets.prefix for asset_path *asee*
395
396 * FileStore key_file_path properly limit filenames to 255 characters. *phuibonhoa*
397
398 * Fix Hash#to_query edge case with html_safe strings. *brainopia*
399
400 * Allow asset tag helper methods to accept :digest => false option in order to completely avoid the digest generation.
401 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]
402 * Don't mount Sprockets server at config.assets.prefix if config.assets.compile is false. *Mark J. Titorenko*
403
404 * Set relative url root in assets when controller isn't available for Sprockets (eg. Sass files using asset_path). Fixes #2435 *Guillermo Iguaran*
405
406 * Fix basic auth credential generation to not make newlines. GH #2882
407
408 * Fixed the behavior of asset pipeline when config.assets.digest and config.assets.compile are false and requested asset isn't precompiled.
409 Before the requested asset were compiled anyway ignoring that the config.assets.compile flag is false. *Guillermo Iguaran*
410
411 * CookieJar is now Enumerable. Fixes #2795
412
413 * Fixed AssetNotPrecompiled error raised when rake assets:precompile is compiling certain .erb files. See GH #2763 #2765 #2805 *Guillermo Iguaran*
414
415 * Manifest is correctly placed in assets path when default assets prefix is changed. Fixes #2776 *Guillermo Iguaran*
416
417 * Fixed stylesheet_link_tag and javascript_include_tag to respect additional options passed by the users when debug is on. *Guillermo Iguaran*
418
419
420 ## Rails 3.1.0 (August 30, 2011) ##
421
422 * Param values are `paramified` in controller tests. *David Chelimsky*
423
424 * 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*
425
426 * The submit form helper does not generate an id "object_name_id" anymore. *fbrusatti*
427
428 * Make sure respond_with with :js tries to render a template in all cases *José Valim*
429
430 * json_escape will now return a SafeBuffer string if it receives SafeBuffer string *tenderlove*
431
432 * Make sure escape_js returns SafeBuffer string if it receives SafeBuffer string *Prem Sichanugrist*
433
434 * Fix escape_js to work correctly with the new SafeBuffer restriction *Paul Gallagher*
435
436 * Brought back alternative convention for namespaced models in i18n *thoefer*
437
438 Now the key can be either "namespace.model" or "namespace/model" until further deprecation.
439
440 * It is prohibited to perform a in-place SafeBuffer mutation *tenderlove*
441
442 The old behavior of SafeBuffer allowed you to mutate string in place via
443 method like `sub!`. These methods can add unsafe strings to a safe buffer,
444 and the safe buffer will continue to be marked as safe.
445
446 An example problem would be something like this:
447
448 <%= link_to('hello world', @user).sub!(/hello/, params[:xss]) %>
449
450 In the above example, an untrusted string (`params[:xss]`) is added to the
451 safe buffer returned by `link_to`, and the untrusted content is successfully
452 sent to the client without being escaped. To prevent this from happening
453 `sub!` and other similar methods will now raise an exception when they are called on a safe buffer.
454
455 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:
456
457 <%= link_to('hello world', @user).sub(/hello/, params[:xss]) %>
458
459 The new versions will now ensure that *all* strings returned by these methods on safe buffers are marked unsafe.
460
461 You can read more about this change in http://groups.google.com/group/rubyonrails-security/browse_thread/thread/2e516e7acc96c4fb
462
463 * Warn if we cannot verify CSRF token authenticity *José Valim*
464
465 * Allow AM/PM format in datetime selectors *Aditya Sanghi*
466
467 * Only show dump of regular env methods on exception screen (not all the rack crap) *DHH*
468
469 * auto_link has been removed with no replacement. If you still use auto_link
470 please install the rails_autolink gem:
471 http://github.com/tenderlove/rails_autolink
472
473 *tenderlove*
474
475 * Added streaming support, you can enable it with: *José Valim*
476
477 class PostsController < ActionController::Base
478 stream :only => :index
479 end
480
481 Please read the docs at `ActionController::Streaming` for more information.
482
483 * Added `ActionDispatch::Request.ignore_accept_header` to ignore accept headers and only consider the format given as parameter *José Valim*
484
485 * Created `ActionView::Renderer` and specified an API for `ActionView::Context`, check those objects for more information *José Valim*
486
487 * 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*
488
489 This can be customized by setting `ActionController::Base.wrap_parameters` in `config/initializer/wrap_parameters.rb`
490
491 * RJS has been extracted out to a gem. *fxn*
492
493 * Implicit actions named not_implemented can be rendered. *Santiago Pastorino*
494
495 * Wildcard route will always match the optional format segment by default. *Prem Sichanugrist*
496
497 For example if you have this route:
498
499 match '*pages' => 'pages#show'
500
501 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:
502
503 match '*pages' => 'pages#show', :format => false
504
505 * Added Base.http_basic_authenticate_with to do simple http basic authentication with a single class method call *DHH*
506
507 class PostsController < ApplicationController
508 USER_NAME, PASSWORD = "dhh", "secret"
509
510 before_filter :authenticate, :except => [ :index ]
511
512 def index
513 render :text => "Everyone can see me!"
514 end
515
516 def edit
517 render :text => "I'm only accessible if you know the password"
518 end
519
520 private
521 def authenticate
522 authenticate_or_request_with_http_basic do |user_name, password|
523 user_name == USER_NAME && password == PASSWORD
524 end
525 end
526 end
527
528 ..can now be written as
529
530 class PostsController < ApplicationController
531 http_basic_authenticate_with :name => "dhh", :password => "secret", :except => :index
532
533 def index
534 render :text => "Everyone can see me!"
535 end
536
537 def edit
538 render :text => "I'm only accessible if you know the password"
539 end
540 end
541
542 * 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*
543
544 * Allow FormHelper#form_for to specify the :method as a direct option instead of through the :html hash *DHH*
545
546 form_for(@post, remote: true, method: :delete) instead of form_for(@post, remote: true, html: { method: :delete })
547
548 * 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*
549
550 * 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*
551
552 * URL parameters which return false for to_param now appear in the query string (previously they were removed) *Andrew White*
553
554 * URL parameters which return nil for to_param are now removed from the query string *Andrew White*
555
556 * ActionDispatch::MiddlewareStack now uses composition over inheritance. It is
557 no longer an array which means there may be methods missing that were not tested.
558 * Add an :authenticity_token option to form_tag for custom handling or to omit the token (pass :authenticity_token => false). *Jakub Kuźma, Igor Wiedler*
559
560 * HTML5 button_tag helper. *Rizwan Reza*
561
562 * Template lookup now searches further up in the inheritance chain. *Artemave*
563
564 * Brought back config.action_view.cache_template_loading, which allows to decide whether templates should be cached or not. *Piotr Sarnacki*
565
566 * url_for and named url helpers now accept :subdomain and :domain as options, *Josh Kalderimis*
567
568 * 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*
569
570 * 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*
571
572 * Added a convenience idiom to generate HTML5 data-* attributes in tag helpers from a :data hash of options:
573
574 tag("div", :data => {:name => 'Stephen', :city_state => %w(Chicago IL)})
575 # => <div data-name="Stephen" data-city-state="[&quot;Chicago&quot;,&quot;IL&quot;]" />
576
577 Keys are dasherized. Values are JSON-encoded, except for strings and symbols. *Stephen Celis*
578
579 * Deprecate old template handler API. The new API simply requires a template handler to respond to call. *José Valim*
580
581 * :rhtml and :rxml were finally removed as template handlers. *José Valim*
582
583 * Moved etag responsibility from ActionDispatch::Response to the middleware stack. *José Valim*
584
585 * 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*
586
587 * file_field automatically adds :multipart => true to the enclosing form. *Santiago Pastorino*
588
589 * Renames csrf_meta_tag -> csrf_meta_tags, and aliases csrf_meta_tag for backwards compatibility. *fxn*
590
591 * 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*
592
593
594 ## Rails 3.0.7 (April 18, 2011) ##
595
596 * No changes.
597
598
599 * Rails 3.0.6 (April 5, 2011)
600
601 * Fixed XSS vulnerability in `auto_link`. `auto_link` no longer marks input as
602 html safe. Please make sure that calls to auto_link() are wrapped in a
603 sanitize(), or a raw() depending on the type of input passed to auto_link().
604 For example:
605
606 <%= sanitize(auto_link(some_user_input)) %>
607
608 Thanks to Torben Schulz for reporting this. The fix can be found here:
609 61ee3449674c591747db95f9b3472c5c3bd9e84d
610
611 * 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*
612
613 * Fixes an issue with number_to_human when converting values which are less than 1 but greater than -1 *Josh Kalderimis*
614
615 * 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*
616
617 * URL parameters which return nil for to_param are now removed from the query string *Andrew White*
618
619 * Don't allow i18n to change the minor version, version now set to ~> 0.5.0 *Santiago Pastorino*
620
621 * Make TranslationHelper#translate use the :rescue_format option in I18n 0.5.0 *Sven Fuchs*
622
623 * Fix regression: javascript_include_tag shouldn't raise if you register an expansion key with nil or [] value *Santiago Pastorino*
624
625 * 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*
626
627
628 ## Rails 3.0.5 (February 26, 2011) ##
629
630 * No changes.
631
632
633 ## Rails 3.0.4 (February 8, 2011) ##
634
635 * No changes.
636
637
638 ## Rails 3.0.3 (November 16, 2010) ##
639
640 * When ActiveRecord::Base objects are sent to predicate methods, the id of the object should be sent to ARel, not the ActiveRecord::Base object.
641
642 * :constraints routing should only do sanity checks against regular expressions. String arguments are OK.
643
644
645 ## Rails 3.0.2 (November 15, 2010) ##
646
647 * The helper number_to_currency accepts a new :negative_format option to be able to configure how to render negative amounts. *Don Wilson*
648
649
650 ## Rails 3.0.1 (October 15, 2010) ##
651
652 * No Changes, just a version bump.
653
654
655 ## Rails 3.0.0 (August 29, 2010) ##
656
657 * 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*
658
659 * 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*
660
661 * 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*
662
663 * Support routing constraints in functional tests. *Andrew White*
664
665 * Add a header that tells Internet Explorer (all versions) to use the best available standards support. *Yehuda Katz*
666
667 * Allow stylesheet/javascript extensions to be changed through railties. *Josh Kalderimis*
668
669 * link_to, button_to, and tag/tag_options now rely on html_escape instead of escape_once. *fxn*
670
671 * url_for returns always unescaped strings, and the :escape option is gone. *fxn*
672
673 * Added accept-charset parameter and _snowman hidden field to force the contents
674 of Rails POSTed forms to be in UTF-8 *Yehuda Katz*
675
676 * Upgrade to Rack 1.2.1 *Jeremy Kemper*
677
678 * Allow :path to be given to match/get/post/put/delete instead of :path_names in the new router *Carlos Antônio da Silva*
679
680 * Added resources_path_names to the new router DSL *José Valim*
681
682 * Allow options to be given to the namespace method in the new router *Carlos Antônio da Silva*
683
684 * Deprecate :name_prefix in the new router DSL *José Valim*
685
686 * Add shallow routes back to the new router *Diego Carrion, Andrew White*
687
688 resources :posts do
689 shallow do
690 resources :comments
691 end
692 end
693
694 You can now use comment_path for /comments/1 instead of post_comment_path for /posts/1/comments/1.
695
696 * 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*
697
698 * Removed textilize, textilize_without_paragraph and markdown helpers. *Santiago Pastorino*
699
700 * Remove middleware laziness *José Valim*
701
702 * Make session stores rely on request.cookie_jar and change set_session semantics to return the cookie value instead of a boolean. *José Valim*
703
704 * OAuth 2: HTTP Token Authorization support to complement Basic and Digest Authorization. *Rick Olson*
705
706 * Fixed inconsistencies in form builder and view helpers #4432 *Neeraj Singh*
707
708 * 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*
709
710 * Renamed the field error CSS class from fieldWithErrors to field_with_errors for consistency. *Jeremy Kemper*
711
712 * Add support for shorthand routes like /projects/status(.:format) #4423 *Diego Carrion*
713
714 * 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*
715
716 * 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*
717
718 * Removed verify method in controllers. *JV*
719 It's now available as a plugin at http://github.com/rails/verification
720
721 * Removed input, form, error_messages_for and error_message_on from views. *JV*
722 It's now available as a plugin at http://github.com/rails/dynamic_form
723
724 * Routes can be scoped by controller module. *Jeremy Kemper*
725
726 # /session => Auth::SessionsController
727 scope :module => 'auth' do
728 resource :session
729 end
730
731 * Added #favicon_link_tag, it uses #image_path so in particular the favicon gets an asset ID *fxn*
732
733 * Fixed that default locale templates should be used if the current locale template is missing *DHH*
734
735 * Added all the new HTML5 form types as individual form tag methods (search, url, number, etc) #3646 *Stephen Celis*
736
737 * Changed the object used in routing constraints to be an instance of
738 ActionDispatch::Request rather than Rack::Request *YK*
739
740 * Changed ActionDispatch::Request#method to return a String, to be compatible
741 with Rack::Request. Added ActionDispatch::Request#method_symbol to
742 return a symbol form of the request method. *YK*
743
744 * Changed ActionDispatch::Request#method to return the original
745 method and #request_method to return the overridden method in the
746 case of methodoverride being used (this means that #method returns
747 "HEAD" and #request_method returns "GET" in HEAD requests). This
748 is for compatibility with Rack::Request *YK*
749
750 * #concat is now deprecated in favor of using <%= %> helpers *YK*
751
752 * Block helpers now return Strings, so you can use <%= form_for @foo do |f| %>.
753 <% form_for do |f| %> still works with deprecation notices *YK*
754
755 * Add a new #mount method on the router that does not anchor the PATH_INFO
756 at the end *YK & CL*
757
758 * Create a new LookupContext object that is responsible for performantly
759 finding a template for a given pattern *JV*
760
761 * Removed relative_url_for in favor of respecting SCRIPT_NAME *YK & CL*
762
763 * Changed file streaming to use Rack::Sendfile middleware *YK*
764
765 * ActionDispatch::Request#content_type returns a String to be compatible with
766 Rack::Request. Use #content_mime_type for the Mime::Type instance *YK*
767
768 * Updated Prototype to 1.6.1 and Scriptaculous to 1.8.3 *ML*
769
770 * Change the preferred way that URL helpers are included into a class*YK & CL*
771
772 # for all helpers including named routes
773 include Rails.application.router.url_helpers
774
775 # for just url_for
776 include Rails.application.router.url_for
777
778 * Fixed that PrototypeHelper#update_page should return html_safe *DHH*
779
780 * Fixed that much of DateHelper wouldn't return html_safe? strings *DHH*
781
782 * Fixed that fragment caching should return a cache hit as html_safe (or it would all just get escaped) *DHH*
783
784 * Added that ActionController::Base now does helper :all instead of relying on the default ApplicationController in Rails to do it *DHH*
785
786 * Added ActionDispatch::Request#authorization to access the http authentication header regardless of its proxy hiding *DHH*
787
788 * Added :alert, :notice, and :flash as options to ActionController::Base#redirect_to that'll automatically set the proper flash before the redirection [DHH]. Examples:
789
790 flash[:notice] = 'Post was created'
791 redirect_to(@post)
792
793 ...becomes:
794
795 redirect_to(@post, :notice => 'Post was created')
796
797 * 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*
798
799
800 * Introduce grouped_collection_select helper. #1249 *Dan Codeape, Erik Ostrom*
801
802 * Make sure javascript_include_tag/stylesheet_link_tag does not append ".js" or ".css" onto external urls. #1664 *Matthew Rudy Jacobs*
803
804 * Ruby 1.9: fix Content-Length for multibyte send_data streaming. #2661 *Sava Chankov*
805
806 * Ruby 1.9: ERB template encoding using a magic comment at the top of the file. *Jeremy Kemper*
807 <%# encoding: utf-8 %>
808
809 * Change integration test helpers to accept Rack environment instead of just HTTP Headers *Pratik Naik*
810
811 Before : get '/path', {}, 'Accept' => 'text/javascript'
812 After : get '/path', {}, 'HTTP_ACCEPT' => 'text/javascript'
813
814 * Instead of checking Rails.env.test? in Failsafe middleware, check env["rails.raise_exceptions"] *Bryan Helmkamp*
815
816 * Fixed that TestResponse.cookies was returning cookies unescaped #1867 *Doug McInnes*
817
818
819 ## 2.3.2 Final (March 15, 2009) ##
820
821 * Fixed that redirection would just log the options, not the final url (which lead to "Redirected to #<Post:0x23150b8>") *DHH*
822
823 * Don't check authenticity tokens for any AJAX requests *Ross Kaffenberger/Bryan Helmkamp*
824
825 * Added ability to pass in :public => true to fresh_when, stale?, and expires_in to make the request proxy cachable #2095 *Gregg Pollack*
826
827 * Fixed that passing a custom form builder would be forwarded to nested fields_for calls #2023 *Eloy Duran/Nate Wiger*
828
829 * Form option helpers now support disabled option tags and the use of lambdas for selecting/disabling option tags from collections #837 *Tekin*
830
831 * 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*
832
833 * Fix a syntax error in current_page?() that was prevent matches against URL's with multiple query parameters #1385, #1868 *chris finne/Andrew White*
834
835 * Added localized rescue template when I18n.locale is set (ex: public/404.da.html) #1835 *José Valim*
836
837 * Make the form_for and fields_for helpers support the new Active Record nested update options. #1202 *Eloy Duran*
838
839 <% form_for @person do |person_form| %>
840 ...
841 <% person_form.fields_for :projects do |project_fields| %>
842 <% if project_fields.object.active? %>
843 Name: <%= project_fields.text_field :name %>
844 <% end %>
845 <% end %>
846 <% end %>
847
848
849 * Added grouped_options_for_select helper method for wrapping option tags in optgroups. #977 *Jon Crawford*
850
851 * Implement HTTP Digest authentication. #1230 [Gregg Kellogg, Pratik Naik] Example :
852
853 class DummyDigestController < ActionController::Base
854 USERS = { "lifo" => 'world' }
855
856 before_filter :authenticate
857
858 def index
859 render :text => "Hello Secret"
860 end
861
862 private
863
864 def authenticate
865 authenticate_or_request_with_http_digest("Super Secret") do |username|
866 # Return the user's password
867 USERS[username]
868 end
869 end
870 end
871
872 * Improved i18n support for the number_to_human_size helper. Changes the storage_units translation data; update your translations accordingly. #1634 *Yaroslav Markin*
873 storage_units:
874 # %u is the storage unit, %n is the number (default: 2 MB)
875 format: "%n %u"
876 units:
877 byte:
878 one: "Byte"
879 other: "Bytes"
880 kb: "KB"
881 mb: "MB"
882 gb: "GB"
883 tb: "TB"
884
885 * Added :silence option to BenchmarkHelper#benchmark and turned log_level into a hash parameter and deprecated the old use *DHH*
886
887 * 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*
888
889 * Make ActionController#render(string) work as a shortcut for render :file/:template/:action => string. [#1435] [Pratik Naik] Examples:
890
891 \# Instead of render(:action => 'other_action')
892 render('other_action') # argument has no '/'
893 render(:other_action)
894
895 \# Instead of render(:template => 'controller/action')
896 render('controller/action') # argument must not begin with a '/', but contain a '/'
897
898 \# Instead of render(:file => '/Users/lifo/home.html.erb')
899 render('/Users/lifo/home.html.erb') # argument must begin with a '/'
900
901 * Add :prompt option to date/time select helpers. #561 *Sam Oliver*
902
903 * Fixed that send_file shouldn't set an etag #1578 *Hongli Lai*
904
905 * Allow users to opt out of the spoofing checks in Request#remote_ip. Useful for sites whose traffic regularly triggers false positives. *Darren Boyd*
906
907 * Deprecated formatted_polymorphic_url. *Jeremy Kemper*
908
909 * 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*
910
911 * 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*
912
913 * Dropped formatted_* routes in favor of just passing in :format as an option. This cuts resource routes generation in half #1359 *aaronbatalion*
914
915 * 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*
916
917 * Allow helpers directory to be overridden via ActionController::Base.helpers_dir #1424 *Sam Pohlenz*
918
919 * Remove deprecated ActionController::Base#assign_default_content_type_and_charset
920
921 * Changed the default of ActionView#render to assume partials instead of files when not given an options hash [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
922
923 # Instead of <%= render :partial => "account" %>
924 <%= render "account" %>
925
926 # Instead of <%= render :partial => "account", :locals => { :account => @buyer } %>
927 <%= render "account", :account => @buyer %>
928
929 # @account is an Account instance, so it uses the RecordIdentifier to replace
930 # <%= render :partial => "accounts/account", :locals => { :account => @account } %>
931 <%= render(@account) %>
932
933 # @posts is an array of Post instances, so it uses the RecordIdentifier to replace
934 # <%= render :partial => "posts/post", :collection => @posts %>
935 <%= render(@posts) %>
936
937 * Remove deprecated render_component. Please use the plugin from http://github.com/rails/render_component/tree/master *Pratik Naik*
938
939 * 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*
940
941
942 ## 2.2.2 (November 21st, 2008) ##
943
944 * I18n: translate number_to_human_size. Add storage_units: [Bytes, KB, MB, GB, TB] to your translations. #1448 *Yaroslav Markin*
945
946 * Restore backwards compatible functionality for setting relative_url_root. Include deprecation
947
948 * Switched the CSRF module to use the request content type to decide if the request is forgeable. #1145 *Jeff Cohen*
949
950 * 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*
951
952 map.resources :products, :only => :show do |product|
953 product.resources :images, :except => :destroy
954 end
955
956 * Added render :js for people who want to render inline JavaScript replies without using RJS *David Heinemeier Hansson*
957
958 * Fixed that polymorphic_url should compact given array #1317 *hiroshi*
959
960 * Fixed the sanitize helper to avoid double escaping already properly escaped entities #683 *antonmos/Ryan McGeary*
961
962 * Fixed that FormTagHelper generated illegal html if name contained square brackets #1238 *Vladimir Dobriakov*
963
964 * 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*
965
966 * Simplified the logging format for parameters (don't include controller, action, and format as duplicates) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
967
968 * Remove the logging of the Session ID when the session store is CookieStore *David Heinemeier Hansson*
969
970 * Fixed regex in redirect_to to fully support URI schemes #1247 *Seth Fitzsimmons*
971
972 * Fixed bug with asset timestamping when using relative_url_root #1265 *Joe Goldwasser*
973
974
975 ## 2.2.0 RC1 (October 24th, 2008) ##
976
977 * Fix incorrect closing CDATA delimiter and that HTML::Node.parse would blow up on unclosed CDATA sections *packagethief*
978
979 * Added stale? and fresh_when methods to provide a layer of abstraction above request.fresh? and friends [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
980
981 class ArticlesController < ApplicationController
982 def show_with_respond_to_block
983 @article = Article.find(params[:id])
984
985
986 # If the request sends headers that differs from the options provided to stale?, then
987 # the request is indeed stale and the respond_to block is triggered (and the options
988 # to the stale? call is set on the response).
989 #
990 # If the request headers match, then the request is fresh and the respond_to block is
991 # not triggered. Instead the default render will occur, which will check the last-modified
992 # and etag headers and conclude that it only needs to send a "304 Not Modified" instead
993 # of rendering the template.
994 if stale?(:last_modified => @article.published_at.utc, :etag => @article)
995 respond_to do |wants|
996 # normal response processing
997 end
998 end
999 end
1000
1001 def show_with_implied_render
1002 @article = Article.find(params[:id])
1003
1004 # Sets the response headers and checks them against the request, if the request is stale
1005 # (i.e. no match of either etag or last-modified), then the default render of the template happens.
1006 # If the request is fresh, then the default render will return a "304 Not Modified"
1007 # instead of rendering the template.
1008 fresh_when(:last_modified => @article.published_at.utc, :etag => @article)
1009 end
1010 end
1011
1012
1013 * Added inline builder yield to atom_feed_helper tags where appropriate [Sam Ruby]. Example:
1014
1015 entry.summary :type => 'xhtml' do |xhtml|
1016 xhtml.p pluralize(order.line_items.count, "line item")
1017 xhtml.p "Shipped to #{order.address}"
1018 xhtml.p "Paid by #{order.pay_type}"
1019 end
1020
1021 * Make PrototypeHelper#submit_to_remote a wrapper around PrototypeHelper#button_to_remote. *Tarmo Tänav*
1022
1023 * Set HttpOnly for the cookie session store's cookie. #1046
1024
1025 * Added FormTagHelper#image_submit_tag confirm option #784 *Alastair Brunton*
1026
1027 * Fixed FormTagHelper#submit_tag with :disable_with option wouldn't submit the button's value when was clicked #633 *Jose Fernandez*
1028
1029 * Stopped logging template compiles as it only clogs up the log *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1030
1031 * Changed the X-Runtime header to report in milliseconds *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1032
1033 * Changed BenchmarkHelper#benchmark to report in milliseconds *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1034
1035 * Changed logging format to be millisecond based and skip misleading stats [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Went from:
1036
1037 Completed in 0.10000 (4 reqs/sec) | Rendering: 0.04000 (40%) | DB: 0.00400 (4%) | 200 OK [http://example.com]
1038
1039 ...to:
1040
1041 Completed in 100ms (View: 40, DB: 4) | 200 OK [http://example.com]
1042
1043 * Add support for shallow nesting of routes. #838 *S. Brent Faulkner*
1044
1045 Example :
1046
1047 map.resources :users, :shallow => true do |user|
1048 user.resources :posts
1049 end
1050
1051 - GET /users/1/posts (maps to PostsController#index action as usual)
1052 named route "user_posts" is added as usual.
1053
1054 - GET /posts/2 (maps to PostsController#show action as if it were not nested)
1055 Additionally, named route "post" is added too.
1056
1057 * Added button_to_remote helper. #3641 *Donald Piret, Tarmo Tänav*
1058
1059 * Deprecate render_component. Please use render_component plugin from http://github.com/rails/render_component/tree/master *Pratik Naik*
1060
1061 * Routes may be restricted to lists of HTTP methods instead of a single method or :any. #407 *Brennan Dunn, Gaius Centus Novus*
1062 map.resource :posts, :collection => { :search => [:get, :post] }
1063 map.session 'session', :requirements => { :method => [:get, :post, :delete] }
1064
1065 * Deprecated implicit local assignments when rendering partials *Josh Peek*
1066
1067 * Introduce current_cycle helper method to return the current value without bumping the cycle. #417 *Ken Collins*
1068
1069 * Allow polymorphic_url helper to take url options. #880 *Tarmo Tänav*
1070
1071 * Switched integration test runner to use Rack processor instead of CGI *Josh Peek*
1072
1073 * Made AbstractRequest.if_modified_sense return nil if the header could not be parsed *Jamis Buck*
1074
1075 * Added back ActionController::Base.allow_concurrency flag *Josh Peek*
1076
1077 * 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*
1078
1079 * Update Prototype to 1.6.0.2 #599 *Patrick Joyce*
1080
1081 * Conditional GET utility methods. *Jeremy Kemper*
1082 response.last_modified = @post.updated_at
1083 response.etag = [:admin, @post, current_user]
1084
1085 if request.fresh?(response)
1086 head :not_modified
1087 else
1088 # render ...
1089 end
1090
1091 * All 2xx requests are considered successful *Josh Peek*
1092
1093 * 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*
1094
1095 * Removed config.action_view.cache_template_loading, use config.cache_classes instead *Josh Peek*
1096
1097 * Get buffer for fragment cache from template's @output_buffer *Josh Peek*
1098
1099 * 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*
1100
1101 * Refactor template preloading. New abstractions include Renderable mixins and a refactored Template class *Josh Peek*
1102
1103 * Changed ActionView::TemplateHandler#render API method signature to render(template, local_assigns = {}) *Josh Peek*
1104
1105 * 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*
1106
1107 * Add :recursive option to javascript_include_tag and stylesheet_link_tag to be used along with :all. #480 *Damian Janowski*
1108
1109 * Allow users to disable the use of the Accept header *Michael Koziarski*
1110
1111 The accept header is poorly implemented by browsers and causes strange
1112 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.
1113 To disable the header you need to set:
1114 config.action_controller.use_accept_header = false
1115 * 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*
1116
1117 * Deprecated TemplateHandler line offset *Josh Peek*
1118
1119 * Allow caches_action to accept cache store options. #416. [José Valim]. Example:
1120
1121 caches_action :index, :redirected, :if => Proc.new { |c| !c.request.format.json? }, :expires_in => 1.hour
1122
1123 * Remove define_javascript_functions, javascript_include_tag and friends are far superior. *Michael Koziarski*
1124
1125 * Deprecate :use_full_path render option. The supplying the option no longer has an effect *Josh Peek*
1126
1127 * Add :as option to render a collection of partials with a custom local variable name. #509 *Simon Jefford, Pratik Naik*
1128
1129 render :partial => 'other_people', :collection => @people, :as => :person
1130
1131 This will let you access objects of @people as 'person' local variable inside 'other_people' partial template.
1132
1133 * time_zone_select: support for regexp matching of priority zones. Resolves #195 *Ernie Miller*
1134
1135 * Made ActionView::Base#render_file private *Josh Peek*
1136
1137 * 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*
1138
1139 This could cause some erroneous test failures if you were redirecting between controllers
1140 in different namespaces and wrote your assertions relative to the root of the application.
1141
1142 * Remove follow_redirect from controller functional tests.
1143
1144 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=>...
1145 * Fix polymorphic_url with singleton resources. #461 *Tammer Saleh*
1146
1147 * Replaced TemplateFinder abstraction with ViewLoadPaths *Josh Peek*
1148
1149 * Added block-call style to link_to [Sam Stephenson/David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1150
1151 <% link_to(@profile) do %>
1152 <strong><%= @profile.name %></strong> -- <span>Check it out!!</span>
1153 <% end %>
1154
1155 * Performance: integration test benchmarking and profiling. *Jeremy Kemper*
1156
1157 * Make caching more aware of mime types. Ensure request format is not considered while expiring cache. *Jonathan del Strother*
1158
1159 * Drop ActionController::Base.allow_concurrency flag *Josh Peek*
1160
1161 * More efficient concat and capture helpers. Remove ActionView::Base.erb_variable. *Jeremy Kemper*
1162
1163 * Added page.reload functionality. Resolves #277. *Sean Huber*
1164
1165 * 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*
1166
1167 * Allow caches_action to accept a layout option *José Valim*
1168
1169 * Added Rack processor *Ezra Zygmuntowicz, Josh Peek*
1170
1171
1172 ## 2.1.0 (May 31st, 2008) ##
1173
1174 * InstanceTag#default_time_from_options overflows to DateTime *Geoff Buesing*
1175
1176 * Fixed that forgery protection can be used without session tracking (Peter Jones) *#139*
1177
1178 * Added session(:on) to turn session management back on in a controller subclass if the superclass turned it off (Peter Jones) *#136*
1179
1180 * Change the request forgery protection to go by Content-Type instead of request.format so that you can't bypass it by POSTing to "#{request.uri}.xml" *Rick Olson*
1181 * InstanceTag#default_time_from_options with hash args uses Time.current as default; respects hash settings when time falls in system local spring DST gap *Geoff Buesing*
1182
1183 * select_date defaults to Time.zone.today when config.time_zone is set *Geoff Buesing*
1184
1185 * Fixed that TextHelper#text_field would corrypt when raw HTML was used as the value (mchenryc, Kevin Glowacz) *#80*
1186
1187 * Added ActionController::TestCase#rescue_action_in_public! to control whether the action under test should use the regular rescue_action path instead of simply raising the exception inline (great for error testing) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1188
1189 * Reduce number of instance variables being copied from controller to view. *Pratik Naik*
1190
1191 * select_datetime and select_time default to Time.zone.now when config.time_zone is set *Geoff Buesing*
1192
1193 * datetime_select defaults to Time.zone.now when config.time_zone is set *Geoff Buesing*
1194

1207
1208 def create
1209 @post = Post.create params[:post]
1210 # ...
1211 end
1212
1213 * add json_escape ERB util to escape html entities in json strings that are output in HTML pages. *Rick Olson*
1214
1215 * Provide a helper proxy to access helper methods from outside views. Closes #10839 *Josh Peek*
1216 e.g. ApplicationController.helpers.simple_format(text)
1217
1218 * Improve documentation. *Xavier Noria, leethal, jerome*
1219
1220 * Ensure RJS redirect_to doesn't html-escapes string argument. Closes #8546 *Josh Peek, eventualbuddha, Pratik Naik*
1221
1222 * Support render :partial => collection of heterogeneous elements. #11491 *Zach Dennis*
1223
1224 * Avoid remote_ip spoofing. *Brian Candler*
1225
1226 * Added support for regexp flags like ignoring case in the :requirements part of routes declarations #11421 *NeilW*

1237
1238 * Fixed NumberHelper#number_with_precision to properly round in a way that works equally on Mac, Windows, Linux (closes #11409, #8275, #10090, #8027) *zhangyuanyi*
1239
1240 * Allow the #simple_format text_helper to take an html_options hash for each paragraph. #2448 *François Beausoleil, Chris O'Sullivan*
1241
1242 * Fix regression from filter refactoring where re-adding a skipped filter resulted in it being called twice. *Rick Olson*
1243
1244 * Refactor filters to use Active Support callbacks. #11235 *Josh Peek*
1245

1595
1596 def index

1598
1599 respond_to do |format|
1600 format.html # => renders index.html.erb and uses "text/html" as the content type
1601 format.iphone # => renders index.iphone.erb and uses "text/html" as the content type
1602 end
1603 end
1604
1605
1606 private
1607 def adjust_format_for_iphone
1608 if request.env["HTTP_USER_AGENT"] && request.env["HTTP_USER_AGENT"][/iPhone/]

1636 * Removed deprecated form of calling xml_http_request/xhr without the first argument being the http verb *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1637
1638 * Removed deprecated methods [David Heinemeier Hansson]:
1639

1641 - ActionController::Base#expire_matched_fragments (just call expire_fragment with a regular expression)
1642 - ActionController::Base.template_root/= methods (use ActionController#Base.view_paths/= instead)
1643 - ActionController::Base.cookie (use ActionController#Base.cookies[]= instead)
1644
1645 * Removed the deprecated behavior of appending ".png" to image_tag/image_path calls without an existing extension *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1646
1647 * 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*
1648
1649 * Optimise named route generation when using positional arguments. *Michael Koziarski*
1650
1651 This change delivers significant performance benefits for the most
1652 common usage scenarios for modern rails applications by avoiding the
1653 costly trip through url_for. Initial benchmarks indicate this is
1654 between 6 and 20 times as fast.
1655
1656 * Explicitly require active_record/query_cache before using it. *Jeremy Kemper*
1657
1658 * Fix layout overriding response status. #9476 *lotswholetime*
1659
1660 * Add field_set_tag for generating field_sets, closes #9477. *Damian Janowski*
1661
1662 * Allow additional parameters to be passed to named route helpers when using positional arguments. Closes #8930 *Ian White*
1663
1664 * Make render :partial work with a :collection of Hashes, previously this wasn't possible due to backwards compatibility restrictions. *Pratik Naik*
1665
1666 * request.host works with IPv6 addresses. #9458 *yuya*
1667
1668 * Fix bug where action caching sets the content type to the ActionCachePath object. Closes #9282 *mindforge*
1669
1670 * Find layouts even if they're not in the first view_paths directory. Closes #9258 *caio*
1671
1672 * Major improvement to the documentation for the options / select form helpers. Closes #9038 *Chris Kampmeier, jardeon, wesg*
1673
1674 * Fix number_to_human_size when using different precisions. Closes #7536. *RichardStrand, mpalmer*
1675
1676 * Added partial layouts (see example in action_view/lib/partials.rb) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1677
1678 * Allow you to set custom :conditions on resource routes. *Rick Olson*
1679
1680 * Fixed that file.content_type for uploaded files would include a trailing \r #9053 *Brad Greenlee*
1681
1682 * url_for now accepts a series of symbols representing the namespace of the record *Josh Knowles*
1683
1684 * Make :trailing_slash work with query parameters for url_for. Closes #4004 *nov*
1685
1686 * Make sure missing template exceptions actually say which template they were looking for. Closes #8683 *dasil003*
1687
1688 * Fix errors with around_filters which do not yield, restore 1.1 behaviour with after filters. Closes #8891 *Stefan Kaes*
1689
1690 After filters will *no longer* be run if an around_filter fails to yield, users relying on
1691 this behaviour are advised to put the code in question after a yield statement in an around filter.
1692
1693
1694 * Allow you to delete cookies with options. Closes #3685 *Josh Peek, Chris Wanstrath*
1695
1696 * Allow you to render views with periods in the name. Closes #8076 *Norbert Crombach*
1697
1698 render :partial => 'show.html.erb'
1699
1700 * Improve capture helper documentation. #8796 *Chris Kampmeier*
1701
1702 * 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*
1703
1704 * Allow sweepers to be created solely for expiring after controller actions, not model changes *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1705
1706 * Added assigns method to ActionController::Caching::Sweeper to easily access instance variables on the controller *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1707
1708 * Give the legacy X-POST_DATA_FORMAT header greater precedence during params parsing for backward compatibility. *Jeremy Kemper*
1709
1710 * Fixed that link_to with an href of # when using :method will not allow for click-through without JavaScript #7037 *Steven Bristol, Josh Peek*
1711
1712 * Fixed that radio_button_tag should generate unique ids #3353 *Bob Silva, Rebecca, Josh Peek*
1713
1714 * Fixed that HTTP authentication should work if the header is called REDIRECT_X_HTTP_AUTHORIZATION as well #6754 *Mislav Marohnić*
1715
1716 * Don't mistakenly interpret the request uri as the query string. #8731 *Pratik Naik, Jeremy Kemper*
1717
1718 * 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*
1719
1720 * Tolerate missing content type on multipart file uploads. Fix for Safari 3. *Jeremy Kemper*
1721
1722 * Deprecation: remove pagination. Install the classic_pagination plugin for forward compatibility, or move to the superior will_paginate plugin. #8157 *Josh Peek*
1723
1724 * Action caching is limited to GET requests returning 200 OK status. #3335 *tom@craz8.com, halfbyte, Dan Kubb, Josh Peek*
1725
1726 * Improve Text Helper test coverage. #7274 *Rob Sanheim, Josh Peek*
1727
1728 * Improve helper test coverage. #7208, #7212, #7215, #7233, #7234, #7235, #7236, #7237, #7238, #7241, #7243, #7244 *Rich Collins, Josh Peek*
1729
1730 * Improve UrlRewriter tests. #7207 *Rich Collins*
1731
1732 * 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*
1733
1734 * Assume html format when rendering partials in RJS. #8076 *Rick Olson*
1735
1736 * Don't double-escape url_for in views. #8144 *Rich Collins, Josh Peek*
1737
1738 * Allow JSON-style values for the :with option of observe_field. Closes #8557 *kommen*
1739
1740 * Remove RAILS_ROOT from backtrace paths. #8540 *Tim Pope*
1741
1742 * Routing: map.resource :logo routes to LogosController so the controller may be reused for multiple nestings or namespaces. *Jeremy Kemper*
1743
1744 * render :partial recognizes Active Record associations as Arrays. #8538 *Kamal Fariz Mahyuddin*
1745
1746 * Routing: drop semicolon and comma as route separators. *Jeremy Kemper*
1747
1748 * request.remote_ip understands X-Forwarded-For addresses with nonstandard whitespace. #7386 *moses*
1749
1750 * Don't prepare response when rendering a component. #8493 *jsierles*
1751
1752 * Reduce file stat calls when checking for template changes. #7736 *alex*
1753
1754 * Added custom path cache_page/expire_page parameters in addition to the options hashes [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1755
1756 def index
1757 caches_page(response.body, "/index.html")
1758 end
1759
1760 * Action Caching speedup. #8231 *Stefan Kaes*
1761
1762 * Wordsmith resources documentation. #8484 *marclove*
1763
1764 * Fix syntax error in code example for routing documentation. #8377. *Norbert Crombach*
1765
1766 * 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*
1767
1768 * Add support for assert_select_rjs with :show and :hide. #7780 *dchelimsky*
1769
1770 * Make assert_select's failure messages clearer about what failed. #7779 *dchelimsky*
1771
1772 * Introduce a default respond_to block for custom types. #8174 *Josh Peek*
1773
1774 * auto_complete_field takes a :method option so you can GET or POST. #8120 *zapnap*
1775
1776 * Added option to suppress :size when using :maxlength for FormTagHelper#text_field #3112 *Tim Pope*
1777
1778 * catch possible WSOD when trying to render a missing partial. Closes #8454 *Jonathan del Strother*
1779
1780 * Rewind request body after reading it, if possible. #8438 *s450r1*
1781
1782 * Resource namespaces are inherited by their has_many subresources. #8280 *marclove, Geoff Garside*
1783
1784 * Fix filtered parameter logging with nil parameter values. #8422 *choonkeat*
1785
1786 * 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*
1787
1788 * Document caches_action. #5419 *Jarkko Laine*
1789
1790 * Update to Prototype 1.5.1. *Sam Stephenson*
1791
1792 * Allow routes to be decalred under namespaces [Tobias Lütke]:
1793
1794 map.namespace :admin do |admin|
1795 admin.root :controller => "products"
1796 admin.feed 'feed.xml', :controller => 'products', :action => 'feed', :format => 'xml'
1797 end
1798
1799 * Update to script.aculo.us 1.7.1_beta3. *Thomas Fuchs*
1800
1801 * observe_form always sends the serialized form. #5271 *Manfred Stienstra, normelton@gmail.com*
1802
1803 * Parse url-encoded and multipart requests ourselves instead of delegating to CGI. *Jeremy Kemper*
1804
1805 * select :include_blank option can be set to a string instead of true, which just uses an empty string. #7664 *Wizard*
1806
1807 * Added url_for usage on render :location, which allows for record identification [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1808
1809 render :xml => person, :status => :created, :location => person
1810
1811 ...expands the location to person_url(person).
1812
1813 * 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*
1814
1815 * Add some performance enhancements to ActionView.
1816
1817 * Cache base_paths in @@cached_base_paths
1818 * Cache template extensions in @@cached_template_extension
1819 * Remove unnecessary rescues
1820
1821 * Assume that rendered partials go by the HTML format by default
1822
1823 def my_partial
1824 render :update do |page|
1825 # in this order
1826 # _foo.html.erb
1827 # _foo.erb
1828 # _foo.rhtml
1829 page.replace :foo, :partial => 'foo'
1830 end
1831 end
1832
1833 * Added record identifications to FormHelper#form_for and PrototypeHelper#remote_form_for [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
1834
1835 <% form_for(@post) do |f| %>
1836 ...
1837 <% end %>
1838
1839 This will expand to be the same as:
1840
1841 <% form_for :post, @post, :url => post_path(@post), :html => { :method => :put, :class => "edit_post", :id => "edit_post_45" } do |f| %>
1842 ...
1843 <% end %>
1844
1845 And for new records:
1846
1847 <% form_for(Post.new) do |f| %>
1848 ...
1849 <% end %>
1850
1851 This will expand to be the same as:
1852
1853 <% form_for :post, @post, :url => posts_path, :html => { :class => "new_post", :id => "new_post" } do |f| %>
1854 ...
1855 <% end %>
1856
1857 * Rationalize route path escaping according to RFC 2396 section 3.3. #7544, #8307. *Jeremy Kemper, Chris Roos, begemot, jugend*
1858
1859 * Added record identification with polymorphic routes for ActionController::Base#url_for and ActionView::Base#url_for [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
1860
1861 redirect_to(post) # => redirect_to(posts_url(post)) => Location: http://example.com/posts/1
1862 link_to(post.title, post) # => link_to(post.title, posts_url(post)) => <a href="/posts/1">Hello world</a>
1863
1864 Any method that calls url_for on its parameters will automatically benefit from this.
1865
1866 * Removed deprecated parameters_for_method_reference concept (legacy from before named routes) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1867
1868 * Add ActionController::Routing::Helpers, a module to contain common URL helpers such as polymorphic_url. *Nicholas Seckar*
1869
1870 * Included the HttpAuthentication plugin as part of core (ActionController::HttpAuthentication::Basic) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1871
1872 * Modernize documentation for form helpers. *Jeremy McAnally*
1873
1874 * Add brief introduction to REST to the resources documentation. *fearoffish*
1875
1876 * Fix various documentation typos throughout ActionPack. *Henrik N*
1877
1878 * Enhance documentation and add examples for url_for. *Jeremy McAnally*
1879
1880 * Fix documentation typo in routes. *Norbert Crombach, pam*
1881
1882 * Sweep flash when filter chain is halted. *Caio Chassot <lists@v2studio.com>*
1883
1884 * 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*
1885
1886 * Replace the current block/continuation filter chain handling by an implementation based on a simple loop. #8226 *Stefan Kaes*
1887
1888 * Update UrlWriter to accept :anchor parameter. Closes #6771. *Chris McGrath*
1889
1890 * Added RecordTagHelper for using RecordIdentifier conventions on divs and other container elements [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1891
1892 <% div_for(post) do %> <div id="post_45" class="post">
1893 <%= post.body %> What a wonderful world!
1894 <% end %> </div>
1895
1896 * Added page[record] accessor to JavaScriptGenerator that relies on RecordIdentifier to find the right dom id [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1897
1898 format.js do
1899 # Calls: new Effect.fade('post_45');
1900 render(:update) { |page| page[post].visual_effect(:fade) }
1901 end
1902
1903 * Added RecordIdentifier to enforce view conventions on records for dom ids, classes, and partial paths *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1904
1905 * Added map.namespace to deal with the common situation of admin sections and the like *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1906
1907 Before:
1908
1909 map.resources :products, :path_prefix => "admin", :controller => "admin/products", :collection => { :inventory => :get }, :member => { :duplicate => :post }
1910 map.resources :tags, :name_prefix => 'admin_product_', :path_prefix => "admin/products/:product_id", :controller => "admin/product_tags"
1911 map.resources :images, :name_prefix => 'admin_product_', :path_prefix => "admin/products/:product_id", :controller => "admin/product_images"
1912 map.resources :variants, :name_prefix => 'admin_product_', :path_prefix => "admin/products/:product_id", :controller => "admin/product_variants"
1913
1914 After:
1915
1916 map.namespace(:admin) do |admin|
1917 admin.resources :products,
1918 :collection => { :inventory => :get },
1919 :member => { :duplicate => :post },
1920 :has_many => [ :tags, :images, :variants ]
1921 end
1922
1923 * Added :name_prefix as standard for nested resources [David Heinemeier Hansson]. WARNING: May be backwards incompatible with your app
1924
1925 Before:
1926
1927 map.resources :emails do |emails|
1928 emails.resources :comments, :name_prefix => "email_"
1929 emails.resources :attachments, :name_prefix => "email_"
1930 end
1931
1932 After:
1933
1934 map.resources :emails do |emails|
1935 emails.resources :comments
1936 emails.resources :attachments
1937 end
1938
1939 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.
1940
1941 * Added :has_many and :has_one for declaring plural and singular resources beneath the current *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1942
1943 Before:
1944
1945 map.resources :notes do |notes|
1946 notes.resources :comments
1947 notes.resources :attachments
1948 notes.resource :author
1949 end
1950
1951 After:
1952
1953 map.resources :notes, :has_many => [ :comments, :attachments ], :has_one => :author
1954
1955 * Added that render :xml will try to call to_xml if it can [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Makes these work:
1956
1957 render :xml => post
1958 render :xml => comments
1959
1960 * 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*
1961
1962 render :xml => post.to_xml, :status => :created, :location => post_url(post)
1963
1964 * Ensure that render_text only adds string content to the body of the response *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1965
1966 * Return the string representation from an Xml Builder when rendering a partial. Closes #5044 *Tim Pope*
1967
1968 * Fixed that parameters from XML should also be presented in a hash with indifferent access *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1969
1970 * 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*
1971
1972 * 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*
1973
1974 * Allow layouts with extension of .html.erb. Closes #8032 *Josh Knowles*
1975
1976 * Change default respond_to templates for xml and rjs formats. *Rick Olson*
1977
1978 * Default xml template goes from #{action_name}.rxml => #{action_name}.xml.builder.
1979 * Default rjs template goes from #{action_name}.rjs => #{action_name}.js.rjs.
1980
1981 You can still specify your old templates:
1982
1983 respond_to do |format|
1984 format.xml do
1985 render :action => "#{action_name}.rxml"
1986 end
1987 end
1988
1989 * 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*
1990
1991 * Fix WSOD when template compilation fails *Rick Olson*
1992
1993 * 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*
1994
1995 * Highlight helper highlights one or many terms in a single pass. *Jeremy Kemper*
1996
1997 * 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*
1998
1999 * Added that FormTagHelper#submit_tag will return to its original state if the submit fails and you're using :disable_with *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2000
2001 * Cleaned up, corrected, and mildly expanded ActionPack documentation. Closes #7190 *Jeremy McAnally*
2002
2003 * Small collection of ActionController documentation cleanups. Closes #7319 *Jeremy McAnally*
2004
2005 * Make sure the route expiry hash is constructed by comparing the to_param-ized values of each hash. *Jamis Buck*
2006
2007 * Allow configuration of the default action cache path for #caches_action calls. *Rick Olson*
2008
2009 class ListsController < ApplicationController
2010 caches_action :index, :cache_path => Proc.new { |controller|
2011 controller.params[:user_id] ?
2012 controller.send(:user_lists_url, c.params[:user_id]) :
2013 controller.send(:lists_url) }
2014 end
2015
2016 * Performance: patch cgi/session/pstore to require digest/md5 once rather than per #initialize. #7583 *Stefan Kaes*
2017
2018 * Cookie session store: ensure that new sessions doesn't reuse data from a deleted session in the same request. *Jeremy Kemper*
2019
2020 * Deprecation: verification with :redirect_to => :named_route shouldn't be deprecated. #7525 *Justin French*
2021
2022 * Cookie session store: raise ArgumentError when :session_key is blank. *Jeremy Kemper*
2023
2024 * 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*
2025
2026 * Consistent public/protected/private visibility for chained methods. #7813 *Dan Manges*
2027
2028 * Prefer MIME constants to strings. #7707 *Dan Kubb*
2029
2030 * 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*
2031
2032 \# 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]
2033 * Added Request#url that returns the complete URL used for the request *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2034
2035 * Extract dynamic scaffolding into a plugin. #7700 *Josh Peek*
2036
2037 * Added user/password options for url_for to add http authentication in a URL *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2038
2039 * Fixed that FormTagHelper#text_area_tag should disregard :size option if it's not a string *Brendon Davidson*
2040
2041 * 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*
2042
2043 * session_enabled? works with session :off. #6680 *Jonathan del Strother*
2044
2045 * Added :port and :host handling to UrlRewriter (which unified url_for usage, regardless of whether it's called in view or controller) #7616 *alancfrancis*
2046
2047 * Allow send_file/send_data to use a registered mime type as the :type parameter #7620 *jonathan*
2048
2049 * Allow routing requirements on map.resource(s) #7633 [quixoten]. Example:
2050
2051 map.resources :network_interfaces, :requirements => { :id => /^\d+\.\d+\.\d+\.\d+$/ }
2052
2053 * Cookie session store: empty and unchanged sessions don't write a cookie. *Jeremy Kemper*
2054
2055 * Added helper(:all) as a way to include all helpers from app/helpers/**/*.rb in ApplicationController *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2056
2057 * Integration tests: introduce methods for other HTTP methods. #6353 *caboose*
2058
2059 * Routing: better support for escaped values in route segments. #7544 [Chris
2060 Roos]
2061 * 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*
2062
2063 Example config/environment.rb:
2064 # Use an application-wide secret key and the default SHA1 message digest.
2065 config.action_controller.session = { :secret => "can't touch this" }
2066
2067 # Store a secret key per user and employ a stronger message digest.
2068 config.action_controller.session = {
2069 :digest => 'SHA512',
2070 :secret => Proc.new { User.current.secret_key }
2071 }
2072
2073 * 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.
2074
2075 * Added caching option to AssetTagHelper#stylesheet_link_tag and AssetTagHelper#javascript_include_tag [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
2076
2077 stylesheet_link_tag :all, :cache => true # when ActionController::Base.perform_caching is false =>
2078 <link href="/stylesheets/style1.css" media="screen" rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" />
2079 <link href="/stylesheets/styleB.css" media="screen" rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" />
2080 <link href="/stylesheets/styleX2.css" media="screen" rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" />
2081
2082 stylesheet_link_tag :all, :cache => true # when ActionController::Base.perform_caching is true =>
2083 <link href="/stylesheets/all.css" media="screen" rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" />
2084
2085 ...when caching is on, all.css is the concatenation of style1.css, styleB.css, and styleX2.css.
2086 Same deal for JavaScripts.
2087
2088 * 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*
2089
2090 * Added default mime type for CSS (Mime::CSS) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2091
2092 * 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*
2093
2094 * Added X-Runtime to all responses with the request run time *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2095
2096 * Add Mime::Type convenience methods to check the current mime type. *Rick Olson*
2097
2098 request.format.html? # => true if Mime::HTML
2099 request.format.jpg? # => true if Mime::JPG
2100
2101 \# ActionController sample usage:
2102 \# the session will be disabled for non html/ajax requests
2103 session :off, :if => Proc.new { |req| !(req.format.html? || req.format.js?) }
2104
2105 * Performance: patch cgi/session to require digest/md5 once rather than per #create_new_id. *Stefan Kaes*
2106
2107 * Add a :url_based_filename => true option to ActionController::Streaming::send_file, which allows URL-based filenames. *Thomas Fuchs*
2108
2109 * Fix that FormTagHelper#submit_tag using :disable_with should trigger the onsubmit handler of its form if available *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2110
2111 * Fix #render_file so that TemplateError is called with the correct params and you don't get the WSOD. *Rick Olson*
2112
2113 * 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
2114 superclass' view_paths. [Rick Olson]
2115 * Allow Controllers to have multiple view_paths instead of a single template_root. Closes #2754 *John Long*
2116
2117 * Add much-needed html-scanner tests. Fixed CDATA parsing bug. *Rick Olson*
2118
2119 * improve error message for Routing for named routes. Closes #7346 *Rob Sanheim*
2120
2121 * Added enhanced docs to routing assertions. Closes #7359 *Rob Sanheim*

2123 * fix form_for example in ActionController::Resources documentation. Closes #7362 *gnarg*
2124
2125 * 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*
2126
2127 * Added FormBuilder#submit as a delegate for FormTagHelper#submit_tag *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2128
2129 * 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*
2130
2131 * Change the query parser to map empty GET params to "" rather than nil. Closes #5694. *Nicholas Seckar*
2132
2133 * date_select and datetime_select take a :default option. #7052 *Nik Wakelin*
2134 date_select "post", "written_on", :default => 3.days.from_now
2135 date_select "credit_card", "bill_due", :default => { :day => 20 }
2136
2137 * select :multiple => true suffixes the attribute name with [] unless already suffixed. #6977 *nik.kakelin, ben, julik*
2138
2139 * Improve routes documentation. #7095 *zackchandler*
2140
2141 * 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*
2142
2143 * Resource member routes require :id, eliminating the ambiguous overlap with collection routes. #7229 *dkubb*
2144
2145 * Remove deprecated assertions. *Jeremy Kemper*
2146
2147 * Change session restoration to allow namespaced models to be autoloaded. Closes #6348. *Nicholas Seckar*

2153 * Fixed NumberHelper#number_with_delimiter to use "." always for splitting the original number, not the delimiter parameter #7389 *ceefour*
2154
2155 * Autolinking recognizes trailing and embedded . , : ; #7354 *Jarkko Laine*
2156
2157 * Make TextHelper::auto_link recognize URLs with colons in path correctly, fixes #7268. *imajes*
2158

2174
2175 * Allow fields_for to be nested inside form_for, so that the name and id get properly constructed *Jamis Buck*
2176
2177 * Allow inGroupsOf and eachSlice to be called through rjs. #7046 *Cody Fauser*
2178
2179 * Allow exempt_from_layout :rhtml. #6742, #7026 *Dan Manges, Squeegy*
2180
2181 * Recognize the .txt extension as Mime::TEXT *Rick Olson*
2182
2183 * Fix parsing of array[] CGI parameters so extra empty values aren't included. #6252 *Nicholas Seckar, aiwilliams, brentrowland*
2184
2185 * link_to_unless_current works with full URLs as well as paths. #6891 *Jarkko Laine, Manfred Stienstra, idrifter*
2186
2187 * Lookup the mime type for #auto_discovery_link_tag in the Mime::Type class. Closes #6941 *Josh Peek*

2203 * Make sure html_document is reset between integration test requests. *ctm*
2204
2205 * Set session to an empty hash if :new_session => false and no session cookie or param is present. CGI::Session was raising an unrescued ArgumentError. *Josh Susser*
2206
2207 * Routing uses URI escaping for path components and CGI escaping for query parameters. *darix, Jeremy Kemper*
2208
2209 * 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*
2210
2211 * Singleton resources: POST /singleton => create, GET /singleton/new => new. *Jeremy Kemper*
2212
2213 * Use 400 Bad Request status for unrescued ActiveRecord::RecordInvalid exceptions. *Jeremy Kemper*
2214

2220
2221 * Ensure render :json => ... skips the layout. Closes #6808 *Josh Peek*

2227 * Fix a bug in Routing where a parameter taken from the path of the current request could not be used as a query parameter for the next. Closes #6752. *Nicholas Seckar*
2228
2229 * Unrescued ActiveRecord::RecordNotFound responds with 404 instead of 500. *Jeremy Kemper*
2230
2231 * Improved auto_link to match more valid urls correctly *Tobias Lütke*
2232
2233 * Add singleton resources. *Rick Olson*
2234
2235 map.resource :account
2236
2237 GET /account
2238 GET /account;edit
2239 UPDATE /account
2240 DELETE /account
2241
2242 * 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*
2243 # application/json response with body 'Element.show({:name: "David"})'
2244 respond_to do |format|
2245 format.json { render :json => { :name => "David" }.to_json, :callback => 'Element.show' }
2246 end
2247
2248 * Makes :discard_year work without breaking multi-attribute parsing in AR. #1260, #3800 *sean@ardismg.com, jmartin@desertflood.com, stephen@touset.org, Bob Silva*
2249
2250 * Adds html id attribute to date helper elements. #1050, #1382 *mortonda@dgrmm.net, David North, Bob Silva*
2251
2252 * Add :index and @auto_index capability to model driven date/time selects. #847, #2655 *moriq, Doug Fales, Bob Silva*
2253
2254 * Add :order to datetime_select, select_datetime, and select_date. #1427 *Timothee Peignier, Patrick Lenz, Bob Silva*
2255
2256 * Added time_select to work with time values in models. Update scaffolding. #2489, #2833 *Justin Palmer, Andre Caum, Bob Silva*
2257
2258 * Added :include_seconds to select_datetime, datetime_select and time_select. #2998 *csn, Bob Silva*
2259
2260 * All date/datetime selects can now accept an array of month names with :use_month_names. Allows for localization. #363 *tomasj, Bob Silva*
2261
2262 * Adds :time_separator to select_time and :date_separator to select_datetime. Preserves BC. #3811 *Bob Silva*
2263
2264 * Added map.root as an alias for map.connect '' *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2265
2266 * 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:
2267
2268 GET /posts/5.xml | request.format => Mime::XML
2269 GET /posts/5.xhtml | request.format => Mime::HTML
2270 GET /posts/5 | request.format => request.accepts.first (usually Mime::HTML for browsers)
2271
2272 * Added the option for extension aliases to mime type registration [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example (already in the default routes):
2273
2274 Mime::Type.register "text/html", :html, %w( application/xhtml+xml ), %w( xhtml )
2275
2276 ...will respond on both .html and .xhtml.
2277
2278 * @response.redirect_url works with 201 Created responses: just return headers['Location'] rather than checking the response status. *Jeremy Kemper*
2279
2280 * Added CSV to Mime::SET so that respond_to csv will work *Cody Fauser*
2281
2282 * Fixed that HEAD should return the proper Content-Length header (that is, actually use @body.size, not just 0) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2283
2284 * 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*
2285
2286 * Update Routing to complain when :controller is not specified by a route. Closes #6669. *Nicholas Seckar*
2287
2288 * Ensure render_to_string cleans up after itself when an exception is raised. #6658 *Rob Sanheim*
2289
2290 * Extract template_changed_since? from compile_template? so plugins may override its behavior for non-file-based templates. #6651 *Jeff Barczewski*
2291
2292 * Update to Prototype and script.aculo.us [5579]. *Thomas Fuchs*
2293
2294 * simple_format helper doesn't choke on nil. #6644 *jerry426*
2295
2296 * Update to Prototype 1.5.0_rc2 [5550] which makes it work in Opera again *Thomas Fuchs*
2297
2298 * 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*
2299
2300 * ActionView::Base.erb_variable accessor names the buffer variable used to render templates. Defaults to _erbout; use _buf for erubis. *Rick Olson*
2301
2302 * assert_select_rjs :remove. *Dylan Egan*
2303
2304 * Always clear model associations from session. #4795 *sd@notso.net, andylien@gmail.com*
2305
2306 * Update to Prototype 1.5.0_rc2. *Sam Stephenson*
2307
2308 * Remove JavaScriptLiteral in favor of ActiveSupport::JSON::Variable. *Sam Stephenson*
2309
2310 * Sync ActionController::StatusCodes::STATUS_CODES with http://www.iana.org/assignments/http-status-codes. #6586 *dkubb*
2311
2312 * 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*
2313
2314 * assert_response supports symbolic status codes. #6569 *Kevin Clark*
2315 assert_response :ok
2316 assert_response :not_found
2317 assert_response :forbidden
2318
2319 * Cache parsed query parameters. #6559 *Stefan Kaes*
2320
2321 * Deprecate JavaScriptHelper#update_element_function, which is superseeded by RJS *Thomas Fuchs*
2322
2323 * pluralize helper interprets nil as zero. #6474 *Tim Pope*
2324
2325 * Fix invalid test fixture exposed by stricter Ruby 1.8.5 multipart parsing. #6524 *Bob Silva*
2326
2327 * Set ActionView::Base.default_form_builder once rather than passing the :builder option to every form or overriding the form helper methods. *Jeremy Kemper*
2328
2329 * Deprecate expire_matched_fragments. Use expire_fragment instead. #6535 *Bob Silva*
2330
2331 * 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*
2332
2333 * Deprecate start_form_tag and end_form_tag. Use form_tag / '</form>' from now on. *Rick Olson*
2334
2335 * Added block-usage to PrototypeHelper#form_remote_tag, document block-usage of FormTagHelper#form_tag *Rick Olson*
2336
2337 * Add a 0 margin/padding div around the hidden _method input tag that form_tag outputs. *Rick Olson*
2338
2339 * Added block-usage to TagHelper#content_tag [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
2340
2341 <% content_tag :div, :class => "strong" %>
2342 Hello world!
2343 <% end %>
2344
2345 Will output:
2346 <div class="strong">Hello world!</div>
2347
2348 * Deprecated UrlHelper#link_to_image and UrlHelper#link_to :post => true #6409 *Bob Silva*
2349
2350 * 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*
2351
2352 * Fixed that setting RAILS_ASSET_ID to "" should not add a trailing slash after assets #6454 *Bob Silva/chrismear*
2353
2354 * Force *_url named routes to show the host in ActionView *Rick Olson*
2355
2356 <%= url_for ... %> # no host
2357 <%= foo_path %> # no host
2358 <%= foo_url %> # host!
2359
2360 * Add support for converting blocks into function arguments to JavaScriptGenerator#call and JavaScriptProxy#call. *Sam Stephenson*
2361
2362 * Add JavaScriptGenerator#literal for wrapping a string in an object whose #to_json is the string itself. *Sam Stephenson*
2363
2364 * Add <%= escape_once html %> to escape html while leaving any currently escaped entities alone. Fix button_to double-escaping issue. *Rick Olson*
2365
2366 * Fix double-escaped entities, such as &amp;amp;, &amp;#123;, etc. *Rick Olson*
2367
2368 * Fix deprecation warnings when rendering the template error template. *Nicholas Seckar*
2369
2370 * Fix routing to correctly determine when generation fails. Closes #6300. [psross].
2371
2372 * Fix broken assert_generates when extra keys are being checked. *Jamis Buck*
2373
2374 * Replace KCODE checks with String#chars for truncate. Closes #6385 *Manfred Stienstra*
2375
2376 * 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.*
2377
2378 * Use String#chars in TextHelper::excerpt. Closes #6386 *Manfred Stienstra*
2379
2380 * Install named routes into ActionView::Base instead of proxying them to the view via helper_method. Closes #5932. *Nicholas Seckar*
2381
2382 * Update to latest Prototype and script.aculo.us trunk versions *Thomas Fuchs*
2383
2384 * Fix relative URL root matching problems. *Mark Imbriaco*
2385
2386 * Fix filter skipping in controller subclasses. #5949, #6297, #6299 *Martin Emde*
2387
2388 * 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*
2389
2390 * Rename test assertion to prevent shadowing. Closes #6306. *psross*
2391
2392 * Fixed that NumberHelper#number_to_delimiter should respect precision of higher than two digits #6231 *Philip Hallstrom*
2393
2394 * Fixed that FormHelper#radio_button didn't respect an :id being passed in #6266 *evansj*
2395
2396 * Added an html_options hash parameter to javascript_tag() and update_page_tag() helpers #6311 [tzaharia]. Example:
2397
2398 update_page_tag :defer => 'true' { |page| ... }
2399
2400 Gives:
2401
2402 <script defer="true" type="text/javascript">...</script>
2403
2404 Which is needed for dealing with the IE6 DOM when it's not yet fully loaded.
2405
2406 * Fixed that rescue template path shouldn't be hardcoded, then it's easier to hook in your own #6295 *Mike Naberezny*
2407
2408 * Fixed escaping of backslashes in JavaScriptHelper#escape_javascript #6302 *sven@c3d2.de*
2409
2410 * Fixed that some 500 rescues would cause 500's themselves because the response had not yet been generated #6329 *cmselmer*
2411
2412 * respond_to :html doesn't assume .rhtml. #6281 *Hampton Catlin*
2413
2414 * Fixed some deprecation warnings in ActionPack *Rick Olson*
2415
2416 * assert_select_rjs decodes escaped unicode chars since the Javascript generators encode them. #6240 *japgolly*
2417
2418 * Deprecation: @cookies, @headers, @request, @response will be removed after 1.2. Use the corresponding method instead. *Jeremy Kemper*
2419
2420 * 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:
2421
2422 head :status => 404 # expands to "404 Not Found"
2423 head :status => :not_found # expands to "404 Not Found"
2424 head :status => :created # expands to "201 Created"
2425
2426 * Add head(options = {}) for responses that have no body. [Jamis Buck]. Examples:
2427
2428 head :status => 404 # return an empty response with a 404 status
2429 head :location => person_path(@person), :status => 201
2430
2431 * Fix bug that kept any before_filter except the first one from being able to halt the before_filter chain. *Rick Olson*
2432
2433 * strip_links is case-insensitive. #6285 *tagoh, Bob Silva*
2434
2435 * Clear the cache of possible controllers whenever Routes are reloaded. *Nicholas Seckar*
2436
2437 * Filters overhaul including meantime filter support using around filters + blocks. #5949 *Martin Emde, Roman Le Negrate, Stefan Kaes, Jeremy Kemper*
2438
2439 * Update RJS render tests. *sam*
2440
2441 * Update CGI process to allow sessions to contain namespaced models. Closes #4638. *dfelstead@site5.com*
2442
2443 * Fix routing to respect user provided requirements and defaults when assigning default routing options (such as :action => 'index'). Closes #5950. *Nicholas Seckar*
2444
2445 * Rescue Errno::ECONNRESET to handle an unexpectedly closed socket connection. Improves SCGI reliability. #3368, #6226 *sdsykes, fhanshaw@vesaria.com*
2446
2447 * Added that respond_to blocks will automatically set the content type to be the same as is requested [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
2448
2449 respond_to do |format|
2450 format.html { render :text => "I'm being sent as text/html" }
2451 format.rss { render :text => "I'm being sent as application/rss+xml" }

2456
2457 * Added proper getters and setters for content type and charset [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example of what we used to do:

2460
2461 ...now:
2462
2463 response.content_type = Mime::ATOM
2464 response.charset = "utf-8"
2465

2473 Example: ActionController::Base.exempt_from_layout 'rpdf'
2474
2475 * Add chained replace/update support for assert_select_rjs *Rick Olson*
2476
2477 Given RJS like...

2481
2482 Test it with...

2501
2502 * 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:
2503
2504 link_to("Hider", nil, :class => "hider_link") { |p| p[:something].hide }
2505
2506 ...can be written like this:
2507
2508 link_to("Hider", :class => "hider_link") { |p| p[:something].hide }
2509
2510 * Update to script.aculo.us 1.6.3 *Thomas Fuchs*

2565
2566 * Tighten rescue clauses. #5985 *james@grayproductions.net*
2567
2568 * Fix send_data documentation typo. #5982 *brad@madriska.com*

2615
2616 * 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.*
2617
2618 * Restrict Request Method hacking with ?_method to POST requests. *Rick Olson*
2619
2620 * Fix bug when passing multiple options to SimplyRestful, like :new => { :preview => :get, :draft => :get }. *Rick Olson, Josh Susser, Lars Pind*
2621
