2559256 Vasiliy Ermolovich update CHANGELOG
nashby authored
5 * You can provide a namespace for your form to ensure uniqueness of id attributes on form elements.
6 The namespace attribute will be prefixed with underscore on the generate HTML id. *Vasiliy Ermolovich*
7
8 Example:
9
10 <%= form_for(@offer, :namespace => 'namespace') do |f| %>
11 <%= f.label :version, 'Version' %>:
12 <%= f.text_field :version %>
13 <% end %>

3a1d519 Sergey Nartimov deprecation warning, changelog entry
lest authored
15 * Refactor ActionDispatch::ShowExceptions. Controller is responsible for choice to show exceptions. *Sergey Nartimov*
16
17 It's possible to override +show_detailed_exceptions?+ in controllers to specify which requests should provide debugging information on errors.
18
281272a Jon Leighton Convert CHANGELOGs to Markdown format.
jonleighton authored
19 * Responders now return 204 No Content for API requests without a response body (as in the new scaffold) *José Valim*
20
21 * 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*
22
23 * Limit the number of options for select_year to 1000.
24
25 Pass the :max_years_allowed option to set your own limit.
26
27 *Libo Cannici*
28
29 * Passing formats or handlers to render :template and friends is deprecated. For example: *Nick Sutterer & José Valim*
30
31 render :template => "foo.html.erb"
32
33 Instead, you can provide :handlers and :formats directly as option:
34 render :template => "foo", :formats => [:html, :js], :handlers => :erb
35
36 * Changed log level of warning for missing CSRF token from :debug to :warn. *Mike Dillon*
37
38 * 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*
39
40 So instead of having to do this:
41
42 @items.each do |item|
43 content_tag_for(:li, item) do
44 Title: <%= item.title %>
45 end
46 end
47
48 You can now do this:
49
50 content_tag_for(:li, @items) do |item|
51 Title: <%= item.title %>
52 end
53
54 * send_file now guess the mime type *Esad Hajdarevic*
55
56 * Mime type entries for PDF, ZIP and other formats were added *Esad Hajdarevic*
57
58 * Generate hidden input before select with :multiple option set to true.
59 This is useful when you rely on the fact that when no options is set,
60 the state of select will be sent to rails application. Without hidden field
61 nothing is sent according to HTML spec *Bogdan Gusiev*
62
63 * Refactor ActionController::TestCase cookies *Andrew White*
64
65 Assigning cookies for test cases should now use cookies[], e.g:
66
67 cookies[:email] = 'user@example.com'
68 get :index
69 assert_equal 'user@example.com', cookies[:email]
70
71 To clear the cookies, use clear, e.g:
72
73 cookies.clear
74 get :index
75 assert_nil cookies[:email]
76
77 We now no longer write out HTTP_COOKIE and the cookie jar is
78 persistent between requests so if you need to manipulate the environment
79 for your test you need to do it before the cookie jar is created.

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

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

129 ## Rails 3.1.1 (unreleased) ##
130
131 * javascript_path and stylesheet_path now refer to /assets if asset pipelining
132 is on. [Santiago Pastorino]
133 * button_to support form option. Now you're able to pass for example
134 'data-type' => 'json'. [ihower]
135 * image_path and image_tag should use /assets if asset pipelining is turned
136 on. Closes #3126 [Santiago Pastorino and christos]
137 * Avoid use of existing precompiled assets during rake assets:precompile run.
138 Closes #3119 [Guillermo Iguaran]
139 * Copy assets to nondigested filenames too *Santiago Pastorino*
140
141 * Give precedence to `config.digest = false` over the existence of
142 manifest.yml asset digests [christos]
143 * escape options for the stylesheet_link_tag method *Alexey Vakhov*
144
145 * Re-launch assets:precompile task using (Rake.)ruby instead of Kernel.exec so
146 it works on Windows [cablegram]
147 * env var passed to process shouldn't be modified in process method. [Santiago
148 Pastorino]
149 * `rake assets:precompile` loads the application but does not initialize
150 it.
151 To the app developer, this means configuration add in
152 config/initializers/* will not be executed.
153 Plugins developers need to special case their initializers that are
154 meant to be run in the assets group by adding :group => :assets. *José Valim*
155
156 * Sprockets uses config.assets.prefix for asset_path *asee*
157
158 * FileStore key_file_path properly limit filenames to 255 characters. *phuibonhoa*
159
160 * Fix Hash#to_query edge case with html_safe strings. *brainopia*
161
162 * Allow asset tag helper methods to accept :digest => false option in order to completely avoid the digest generation.
163 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]
164 * Don't mount Sprockets server at config.assets.prefix if config.assets.compile is false. *Mark J. Titorenko*
165
166 * Set relative url root in assets when controller isn't available for Sprockets (eg. Sass files using asset_path). Fixes #2435 *Guillermo Iguaran*
167
168 * Fix basic auth credential generation to not make newlines. GH #2882
169
170 * Fixed the behavior of asset pipeline when config.assets.digest and config.assets.compile are false and requested asset isn't precompiled.
171 Before the requested asset were compiled anyway ignoring that the config.assets.compile flag is false. *Guillermo Iguaran*
172
173 * CookieJar is now Enumerable. Fixes #2795
174
175 * Fixed AssetNotPrecompiled error raised when rake assets:precompile is compiling certain .erb files. See GH #2763 #2765 #2805 *Guillermo Iguaran*
176
177 * Manifest is correctly placed in assets path when default assets prefix is changed. Fixes #2776 *Guillermo Iguaran*
178
179 * Fixed stylesheet_link_tag and javascript_include_tag to respect additional options passed by the users when debug is on. *Guillermo Iguaran*
180
181
182 ## Rails 3.1.0 (August 30, 2011) ##
183
184 * Param values are `paramified` in controller tests. *David Chelimsky*
185
186 * 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*
187
188 * The submit form helper does not generate an id "object_name_id" anymore. *fbrusatti*
189
190 * Make sure respond_with with :js tries to render a template in all cases *José Valim*
191
192 * json_escape will now return a SafeBuffer string if it receives SafeBuffer string *tenderlove*
193
194 * Make sure escape_js returns SafeBuffer string if it receives SafeBuffer string *Prem Sichanugrist*
195
196 * Fix escape_js to work correctly with the new SafeBuffer restriction *Paul Gallagher*
197
198 * Brought back alternative convention for namespaced models in i18n *thoefer*
199
200 Now the key can be either "namespace.model" or "namespace/model" until further deprecation.
201
202 * It is prohibited to perform a in-place SafeBuffer mutation *tenderlove*
203
204 The old behavior of SafeBuffer allowed you to mutate string in place via
205 method like `sub!`. These methods can add unsafe strings to a safe buffer,
206 and the safe buffer will continue to be marked as safe.
207
208 An example problem would be something like this:
209
210 <%= link_to('hello world', @user).sub!(/hello/, params[:xss]) %>
211
212 In the above example, an untrusted string (`params[:xss]`) is added to the
213 safe buffer returned by `link_to`, and the untrusted content is successfully
214 sent to the client without being escaped. To prevent this from happening
215 `sub!` and other similar methods will now raise an exception when they are called on a safe buffer.
216
217 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:
218
219 <%= link_to('hello world', @user).sub(/hello/, params[:xss]) %>
220
221 The new versions will now ensure that *all* strings returned by these methods on safe buffers are marked unsafe.
222
223 You can read more about this change in http://groups.google.com/group/rubyonrails-security/browse_thread/thread/2e516e7acc96c4fb
224
225 * Warn if we cannot verify CSRF token authenticity *José Valim*
226
227 * Allow AM/PM format in datetime selectors *Aditya Sanghi*
228
229 * Only show dump of regular env methods on exception screen (not all the rack crap) *DHH*
230
231 * auto_link has been removed with no replacement. If you still use auto_link
232 please install the rails_autolink gem:
233 http://github.com/tenderlove/rails_autolink
234
235 *tenderlove*
236
237 * Added streaming support, you can enable it with: *José Valim*
238
239 class PostsController < ActionController::Base
240 stream :only => :index
241 end
242
243 Please read the docs at `ActionController::Streaming` for more information.
244
245 * Added `ActionDispatch::Request.ignore_accept_header` to ignore accept headers and only consider the format given as parameter *José Valim*
246
247 * Created `ActionView::Renderer` and specified an API for `ActionView::Context`, check those objects for more information *José Valim*
248
249 * 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*
250
251 This can be customized by setting `ActionController::Base.wrap_parameters` in `config/initializer/wrap_parameters.rb`
252
253 * RJS has been extracted out to a gem. *fxn*
254
255 * Implicit actions named not_implemented can be rendered. *Santiago Pastorino*
256
257 * Wildcard route will always match the optional format segment by default. *Prem Sichanugrist*
258
259 For example if you have this route:
260
261 match '*pages' => 'pages#show'
262
263 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:
264
265 match '*pages' => 'pages#show', :format => false
266
267 * Added Base.http_basic_authenticate_with to do simple http basic authentication with a single class method call *DHH*
268
269 class PostsController < ApplicationController
270 USER_NAME, PASSWORD = "dhh", "secret"
271
272 before_filter :authenticate, :except => [ :index ]
273
274 def index
275 render :text => "Everyone can see me!"
276 end
277
278 def edit
279 render :text => "I'm only accessible if you know the password"
280 end
281
282 private
283 def authenticate
284 authenticate_or_request_with_http_basic do |user_name, password|
285 user_name == USER_NAME && password == PASSWORD
286 end
287 end
288 end
289
290 ..can now be written as
291
292 class PostsController < ApplicationController
293 http_basic_authenticate_with :name => "dhh", :password => "secret", :except => :index
294
295 def index
296 render :text => "Everyone can see me!"
297 end
298
299 def edit
300 render :text => "I'm only accessible if you know the password"
301 end
302 end
303
304 * 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*
305
306 * Allow FormHelper#form_for to specify the :method as a direct option instead of through the :html hash *DHH*
307
308 form_for(@post, remote: true, method: :delete) instead of form_for(@post, remote: true, html: { method: :delete })
309
310 * 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*
311
312 * 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*
313
314 * URL parameters which return false for to_param now appear in the query string (previously they were removed) *Andrew White*
315
316 * URL parameters which return nil for to_param are now removed from the query string *Andrew White*
317
318 * ActionDispatch::MiddlewareStack now uses composition over inheritance. It is
319 no longer an array which means there may be methods missing that were not tested.
320 * Add an :authenticity_token option to form_tag for custom handling or to omit the token (pass :authenticity_token => false). *Jakub Kuźma, Igor Wiedler*
321
322 * HTML5 button_tag helper. *Rizwan Reza*
323
324 * Template lookup now searches further up in the inheritance chain. *Artemave*
325
326 * Brought back config.action_view.cache_template_loading, which allows to decide whether templates should be cached or not. *Piotr Sarnacki*
327
328 * url_for and named url helpers now accept :subdomain and :domain as options, *Josh Kalderimis*
329
330 * 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*
331
332 * 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*
333
334 * Added a convenience idiom to generate HTML5 data-* attributes in tag helpers from a :data hash of options:
335
336 tag("div", :data => {:name => 'Stephen', :city_state => %w(Chicago IL)})
337 # => <div data-name="Stephen" data-city-state="[&quot;Chicago&quot;,&quot;IL&quot;]" />
338
339 Keys are dasherized. Values are JSON-encoded, except for strings and symbols. *Stephen Celis*
340
341 * Deprecate old template handler API. The new API simply requires a template handler to respond to call. *José Valim*
342
343 * :rhtml and :rxml were finally removed as template handlers. *José Valim*
344
345 * Moved etag responsibility from ActionDispatch::Response to the middleware stack. *José Valim*
346
347 * 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*
348
349 * file_field automatically adds :multipart => true to the enclosing form. *Santiago Pastorino*
350
351 * Renames csrf_meta_tag -> csrf_meta_tags, and aliases csrf_meta_tag for backwards compatibility. *fxn*
352
353 * 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*
354
355
356 ## Rails 3.0.7 (April 18, 2011) ##
357
358 * No changes.
359
360
361 * Rails 3.0.6 (April 5, 2011)
362
363 * Fixed XSS vulnerability in `auto_link`. `auto_link` no longer marks input as
364 html safe. Please make sure that calls to auto_link() are wrapped in a
365 sanitize(), or a raw() depending on the type of input passed to auto_link().
366 For example:
367
368 <%= sanitize(auto_link(some_user_input)) %>
369
370 Thanks to Torben Schulz for reporting this. The fix can be found here:
371 61ee3449674c591747db95f9b3472c5c3bd9e84d
372
373 * 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*
374
375 * Fixes an issue with number_to_human when converting values which are less than 1 but greater than -1 *Josh Kalderimis*
376
377 * 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*
378
379 * URL parameters which return nil for to_param are now removed from the query string *Andrew White*
380
381 * Don't allow i18n to change the minor version, version now set to ~> 0.5.0 *Santiago Pastorino*
382
383 * Make TranslationHelper#translate use the :rescue_format option in I18n 0.5.0 *Sven Fuchs*
384
385 * Fix regression: javascript_include_tag shouldn't raise if you register an expansion key with nil or [] value *Santiago Pastorino*
386
387 * 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*
388
389
390 ## Rails 3.0.5 (February 26, 2011) ##
391
392 * No changes.
393
394
395 ## Rails 3.0.4 (February 8, 2011) ##
396
397 * No changes.
398
399
400 ## Rails 3.0.3 (November 16, 2010) ##
401
402 * When ActiveRecord::Base objects are sent to predicate methods, the id of the object should be sent to ARel, not the ActiveRecord::Base object.
403
404 * :constraints routing should only do sanity checks against regular expressions. String arguments are OK.
405
406
407 ## Rails 3.0.2 (November 15, 2010) ##
408
409 * The helper number_to_currency accepts a new :negative_format option to be able to configure how to render negative amounts. *Don Wilson*
410
411
412 ## Rails 3.0.1 (October 15, 2010) ##
413
414 * No Changes, just a version bump.
415
416
417 ## Rails 3.0.0 (August 29, 2010) ##
418
419 * 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*
420
421 * 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*
422
423 * 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*
424
425 * Support routing constraints in functional tests. *Andrew White*
426
427 * Add a header that tells Internet Explorer (all versions) to use the best available standards support. *Yehuda Katz*
428
429 * Allow stylesheet/javascript extensions to be changed through railties. *Josh Kalderimis*
430
431 * link_to, button_to, and tag/tag_options now rely on html_escape instead of escape_once. *fxn*
432
433 * url_for returns always unescaped strings, and the :escape option is gone. *fxn*
434
435 * Added accept-charset parameter and _snowman hidden field to force the contents
436 of Rails POSTed forms to be in UTF-8 *Yehuda Katz*
437
438 * Upgrade to Rack 1.2.1 *Jeremy Kemper*
439
440 * Allow :path to be given to match/get/post/put/delete instead of :path_names in the new router *Carlos Antônio da Silva*
441
442 * Added resources_path_names to the new router DSL *José Valim*
443
444 * Allow options to be given to the namespace method in the new router *Carlos Antônio da Silva*
445
446 * Deprecate :name_prefix in the new router DSL *José Valim*
447
448 * Add shallow routes back to the new router *Diego Carrion, Andrew White*
449
450 resources :posts do
451 shallow do
452 resources :comments
453 end
454 end
455
456 You can now use comment_path for /comments/1 instead of post_comment_path for /posts/1/comments/1.
457
458 * 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*
459
460 * Removed textilize, textilize_without_paragraph and markdown helpers. *Santiago Pastorino*
461
462 * Remove middleware laziness *José Valim*
463
464 * Make session stores rely on request.cookie_jar and change set_session semantics to return the cookie value instead of a boolean. *José Valim*
465
466 * OAuth 2: HTTP Token Authorization support to complement Basic and Digest Authorization. *Rick Olson*
467
468 * Fixed inconsistencies in form builder and view helpers #4432 *Neeraj Singh*
469
470 * 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*
471
472 * Renamed the field error CSS class from fieldWithErrors to field_with_errors for consistency. *Jeremy Kemper*
473
474 * Add support for shorthand routes like /projects/status(.:format) #4423 *Diego Carrion*
475
476 * 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*
477
478 * 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*
479
480 * Removed verify method in controllers. *JV*
481 It's now available as a plugin at http://github.com/rails/verification
482
483 * Removed input, form, error_messages_for and error_message_on from views. *JV*
484 It's now available as a plugin at http://github.com/rails/dynamic_form
485
486 * Routes can be scoped by controller module. *Jeremy Kemper*
487
488 # /session => Auth::SessionsController
489 scope :module => 'auth' do
490 resource :session
491 end
492
493 * Added #favicon_link_tag, it uses #image_path so in particular the favicon gets an asset ID *fxn*
494
495 * Fixed that default locale templates should be used if the current locale template is missing *DHH*
496
497 * Added all the new HTML5 form types as individual form tag methods (search, url, number, etc) #3646 *Stephen Celis*
498
499 * Changed the object used in routing constraints to be an instance of
500 ActionDispatch::Request rather than Rack::Request *YK*
501
502 * Changed ActionDispatch::Request#method to return a String, to be compatible
503 with Rack::Request. Added ActionDispatch::Request#method_symbol to
504 return a symbol form of the request method. *YK*
505
506 * Changed ActionDispatch::Request#method to return the original
507 method and #request_method to return the overridden method in the
508 case of methodoverride being used (this means that #method returns
509 "HEAD" and #request_method returns "GET" in HEAD requests). This
510 is for compatibility with Rack::Request *YK*
511
512 * #concat is now deprecated in favor of using <%= %> helpers *YK*
513
514 * Block helpers now return Strings, so you can use <%= form_for @foo do |f| %>.
515 <% form_for do |f| %> still works with deprecation notices *YK*
516
517 * Add a new #mount method on the router that does not anchor the PATH_INFO
518 at the end *YK & CL*
519
520 * Create a new LookupContext object that is responsible for performantly
521 finding a template for a given pattern *JV*
522
523 * Removed relative_url_for in favor of respecting SCRIPT_NAME *YK & CL*
524
525 * Changed file streaming to use Rack::Sendfile middleware *YK*
526
527 * ActionDispatch::Request#content_type returns a String to be compatible with
528 Rack::Request. Use #content_mime_type for the Mime::Type instance *YK*
529
530 * Updated Prototype to 1.6.1 and Scriptaculous to 1.8.3 *ML*
531
532 * Change the preferred way that URL helpers are included into a class*YK & CL*
533
534 # for all helpers including named routes
535 include Rails.application.router.url_helpers
536
537 # for just url_for
538 include Rails.application.router.url_for
539
540 * Fixed that PrototypeHelper#update_page should return html_safe *DHH*
541
542 * Fixed that much of DateHelper wouldn't return html_safe? strings *DHH*
543
544 * Fixed that fragment caching should return a cache hit as html_safe (or it would all just get escaped) *DHH*
545
546 * Added that ActionController::Base now does helper :all instead of relying on the default ApplicationController in Rails to do it *DHH*
547
548 * Added ActionDispatch::Request#authorization to access the http authentication header regardless of its proxy hiding *DHH*
549
550 * Added :alert, :notice, and :flash as options to ActionController::Base#redirect_to that'll automatically set the proper flash before the redirection [DHH]. Examples:
551
552 flash[:notice] = 'Post was created'
553 redirect_to(@post)
554
555 ...becomes:
556
557 redirect_to(@post, :notice => 'Post was created')
558
559 * 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*
560
561
562 * Introduce grouped_collection_select helper. #1249 *Dan Codeape, Erik Ostrom*
563
564 * Make sure javascript_include_tag/stylesheet_link_tag does not append ".js" or ".css" onto external urls. #1664 *Matthew Rudy Jacobs*
565
566 * Ruby 1.9: fix Content-Length for multibyte send_data streaming. #2661 *Sava Chankov*
567
568 * Ruby 1.9: ERB template encoding using a magic comment at the top of the file. *Jeremy Kemper*
569 <%# encoding: utf-8 %>
570
571 * Change integration test helpers to accept Rack environment instead of just HTTP Headers *Pratik Naik*
572
573 Before : get '/path', {}, 'Accept' => 'text/javascript'
574 After : get '/path', {}, 'HTTP_ACCEPT' => 'text/javascript'
575
576 * Instead of checking Rails.env.test? in Failsafe middleware, check env["rails.raise_exceptions"] *Bryan Helmkamp*
577
578 * Fixed that TestResponse.cookies was returning cookies unescaped #1867 *Doug McInnes*
579
580
581 ## 2.3.2 Final (March 15, 2009) ##
582
583 * Fixed that redirection would just log the options, not the final url (which lead to "Redirected to #<Post:0x23150b8>") *DHH*
584
585 * Don't check authenticity tokens for any AJAX requests *Ross Kaffenberger/Bryan Helmkamp*
586
587 * Added ability to pass in :public => true to fresh_when, stale?, and expires_in to make the request proxy cachable #2095 *Gregg Pollack*
588
589 * Fixed that passing a custom form builder would be forwarded to nested fields_for calls #2023 *Eloy Duran/Nate Wiger*
590
591 * Form option helpers now support disabled option tags and the use of lambdas for selecting/disabling option tags from collections #837 *Tekin*
592
593 * 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*
594
595 * Fix a syntax error in current_page?() that was prevent matches against URL's with multiple query parameters #1385, #1868 *chris finne/Andrew White*
596
597 * Added localized rescue template when I18n.locale is set (ex: public/404.da.html) #1835 *José Valim*
598
599 * Make the form_for and fields_for helpers support the new Active Record nested update options. #1202 *Eloy Duran*
600
601 <% form_for @person do |person_form| %>
602 ...
603 <% person_form.fields_for :projects do |project_fields| %>
604 <% if project_fields.object.active? %>
605 Name: <%= project_fields.text_field :name %>
606 <% end %>
607 <% end %>
608 <% end %>
609
610
611 * Added grouped_options_for_select helper method for wrapping option tags in optgroups. #977 *Jon Crawford*
612
613 * Implement HTTP Digest authentication. #1230 [Gregg Kellogg, Pratik Naik] Example :
614
615 class DummyDigestController < ActionController::Base
616 USERS = { "lifo" => 'world' }
617
618 before_filter :authenticate
619
620 def index
621 render :text => "Hello Secret"
622 end
623
624 private
625
626 def authenticate
627 authenticate_or_request_with_http_digest("Super Secret") do |username|
628 # Return the user's password
629 USERS[username]
630 end
631 end
632 end
633
634 * Improved i18n support for the number_to_human_size helper. Changes the storage_units translation data; update your translations accordingly. #1634 *Yaroslav Markin*
635 storage_units:
636 # %u is the storage unit, %n is the number (default: 2 MB)
637 format: "%n %u"
638 units:
639 byte:
640 one: "Byte"
641 other: "Bytes"
642 kb: "KB"
643 mb: "MB"
644 gb: "GB"
645 tb: "TB"
646
647 * Added :silence option to BenchmarkHelper#benchmark and turned log_level into a hash parameter and deprecated the old use *DHH*
648
649 * 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*
650
651 * Make ActionController#render(string) work as a shortcut for render :file/:template/:action => string. [#1435] [Pratik Naik] Examples:
652
653 \# Instead of render(:action => 'other_action')
654 render('other_action') # argument has no '/'
655 render(:other_action)
656
657 \# Instead of render(:template => 'controller/action')
658 render('controller/action') # argument must not begin with a '/', but contain a '/'
659
660 \# Instead of render(:file => '/Users/lifo/home.html.erb')
661 render('/Users/lifo/home.html.erb') # argument must begin with a '/'
662
663 * Add :prompt option to date/time select helpers. #561 *Sam Oliver*
664
665 * Fixed that send_file shouldn't set an etag #1578 *Hongli Lai*
666
667 * Allow users to opt out of the spoofing checks in Request#remote_ip. Useful for sites whose traffic regularly triggers false positives. *Darren Boyd*
668
669 * Deprecated formatted_polymorphic_url. *Jeremy Kemper*
670
671 * 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*
672
673 * 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*
674
675 * Dropped formatted_* routes in favor of just passing in :format as an option. This cuts resource routes generation in half #1359 *aaronbatalion*
676
677 * 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*
678
679 * Allow helpers directory to be overridden via ActionController::Base.helpers_dir #1424 *Sam Pohlenz*
680
681 * Remove deprecated ActionController::Base#assign_default_content_type_and_charset
682
683 * Changed the default of ActionView#render to assume partials instead of files when not given an options hash [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
684
685 # Instead of <%= render :partial => "account" %>
686 <%= render "account" %>
687
688 # Instead of <%= render :partial => "account", :locals => { :account => @buyer } %>
689 <%= render "account", :account => @buyer %>
690
691 # @account is an Account instance, so it uses the RecordIdentifier to replace
692 # <%= render :partial => "accounts/account", :locals => { :account => @account } %>
693 <%= render(@account) %>
694
695 # @posts is an array of Post instances, so it uses the RecordIdentifier to replace
696 # <%= render :partial => "posts/post", :collection => @posts %>
697 <%= render(@posts) %>
698
699 * Remove deprecated render_component. Please use the plugin from http://github.com/rails/render_component/tree/master *Pratik Naik*
700
701 * 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*
702
703
704 ## 2.2.2 (November 21st, 2008) ##
705
706 * I18n: translate number_to_human_size. Add storage_units: [Bytes, KB, MB, GB, TB] to your translations. #1448 *Yaroslav Markin*
707
708 * Restore backwards compatible functionality for setting relative_url_root. Include deprecation
709
710 * Switched the CSRF module to use the request content type to decide if the request is forgeable. #1145 *Jeff Cohen*
711
712 * 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*
713
714 map.resources :products, :only => :show do |product|
715 product.resources :images, :except => :destroy
716 end
717
718 * Added render :js for people who want to render inline JavaScript replies without using RJS *David Heinemeier Hansson*
719
720 * Fixed that polymorphic_url should compact given array #1317 *hiroshi*
721
722 * Fixed the sanitize helper to avoid double escaping already properly escaped entities #683 *antonmos/Ryan McGeary*
723
724 * Fixed that FormTagHelper generated illegal html if name contained square brackets #1238 *Vladimir Dobriakov*
725
726 * 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*
727
728 * Simplified the logging format for parameters (don't include controller, action, and format as duplicates) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
729
730 * Remove the logging of the Session ID when the session store is CookieStore *David Heinemeier Hansson*
731
732 * Fixed regex in redirect_to to fully support URI schemes #1247 *Seth Fitzsimmons*
733
734 * Fixed bug with asset timestamping when using relative_url_root #1265 *Joe Goldwasser*
735
736
737 ## 2.2.0 RC1 (October 24th, 2008) ##
738
739 * Fix incorrect closing CDATA delimiter and that HTML::Node.parse would blow up on unclosed CDATA sections *packagethief*
740
741 * Added stale? and fresh_when methods to provide a layer of abstraction above request.fresh? and friends [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
742
743 class ArticlesController < ApplicationController
744 def show_with_respond_to_block
745 @article = Article.find(params[:id])
746
747
748 # If the request sends headers that differs from the options provided to stale?, then
749 # the request is indeed stale and the respond_to block is triggered (and the options
750 # to the stale? call is set on the response).
751 #
752 # If the request headers match, then the request is fresh and the respond_to block is
753 # not triggered. Instead the default render will occur, which will check the last-modified
754 # and etag headers and conclude that it only needs to send a "304 Not Modified" instead
755 # of rendering the template.
756 if stale?(:last_modified => @article.published_at.utc, :etag => @article)
757 respond_to do |wants|
758 # normal response processing
759 end
760 end
761 end
762
763 def show_with_implied_render
764 @article = Article.find(params[:id])
765
766 # Sets the response headers and checks them against the request, if the request is stale
767 # (i.e. no match of either etag or last-modified), then the default render of the template happens.
768 # If the request is fresh, then the default render will return a "304 Not Modified"
769 # instead of rendering the template.
770 fresh_when(:last_modified => @article.published_at.utc, :etag => @article)
771 end
772 end
773
774
775 * Added inline builder yield to atom_feed_helper tags where appropriate [Sam Ruby]. Example:
776
777 entry.summary :type => 'xhtml' do |xhtml|
778 xhtml.p pluralize(order.line_items.count, "line item")
779 xhtml.p "Shipped to #{order.address}"
780 xhtml.p "Paid by #{order.pay_type}"
781 end
782
783 * Make PrototypeHelper#submit_to_remote a wrapper around PrototypeHelper#button_to_remote. *Tarmo Tänav*
784
785 * Set HttpOnly for the cookie session store's cookie. #1046
786
787 * Added FormTagHelper#image_submit_tag confirm option #784 *Alastair Brunton*
788
789 * Fixed FormTagHelper#submit_tag with :disable_with option wouldn't submit the button's value when was clicked #633 *Jose Fernandez*
790
791 * Stopped logging template compiles as it only clogs up the log *David Heinemeier Hansson*
792
793 * Changed the X-Runtime header to report in milliseconds *David Heinemeier Hansson*
794
795 * Changed BenchmarkHelper#benchmark to report in milliseconds *David Heinemeier Hansson*
796
797 * Changed logging format to be millisecond based and skip misleading stats [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Went from:
798
799 Completed in 0.10000 (4 reqs/sec) | Rendering: 0.04000 (40%) | DB: 0.00400 (4%) | 200 OK [http://example.com]
800
801 ...to:
802
803 Completed in 100ms (View: 40, DB: 4) | 200 OK [http://example.com]
804
805 * Add support for shallow nesting of routes. #838 *S. Brent Faulkner*
806
807 Example :
808
809 map.resources :users, :shallow => true do |user|
810 user.resources :posts
811 end
812
813 - GET /users/1/posts (maps to PostsController#index action as usual)
814 named route "user_posts" is added as usual.
815
816 - GET /posts/2 (maps to PostsController#show action as if it were not nested)
817 Additionally, named route "post" is added too.
818
819 * Added button_to_remote helper. #3641 *Donald Piret, Tarmo Tänav*
820
821 * Deprecate render_component. Please use render_component plugin from http://github.com/rails/render_component/tree/master *Pratik Naik*
822
823 * Routes may be restricted to lists of HTTP methods instead of a single method or :any. #407 *Brennan Dunn, Gaius Centus Novus*
824 map.resource :posts, :collection => { :search => [:get, :post] }
825 map.session 'session', :requirements => { :method => [:get, :post, :delete] }
826
827 * Deprecated implicit local assignments when rendering partials *Josh Peek*
828
829 * Introduce current_cycle helper method to return the current value without bumping the cycle. #417 *Ken Collins*
830
831 * Allow polymorphic_url helper to take url options. #880 *Tarmo Tänav*
832
833 * Switched integration test runner to use Rack processor instead of CGI *Josh Peek*
834
835 * Made AbstractRequest.if_modified_sense return nil if the header could not be parsed *Jamis Buck*
836
837 * Added back ActionController::Base.allow_concurrency flag *Josh Peek*
838
839 * 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*
840
841 * Update Prototype to 1.6.0.2 #599 *Patrick Joyce*
842
843 * Conditional GET utility methods. *Jeremy Kemper*
844 response.last_modified = @post.updated_at
845 response.etag = [:admin, @post, current_user]
846
847 if request.fresh?(response)
848 head :not_modified
849 else
850 # render ...
851 end
852
853 * All 2xx requests are considered successful *Josh Peek*
854
855 * 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*
856
857 * Removed config.action_view.cache_template_loading, use config.cache_classes instead *Josh Peek*
858
859 * Get buffer for fragment cache from template's @output_buffer *Josh Peek*
860
861 * 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*
862
863 * Refactor template preloading. New abstractions include Renderable mixins and a refactored Template class *Josh Peek*
864
865 * Changed ActionView::TemplateHandler#render API method signature to render(template, local_assigns = {}) *Josh Peek*
866
867 * 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*
868
869 * Add :recursive option to javascript_include_tag and stylesheet_link_tag to be used along with :all. #480 *Damian Janowski*
870
871 * Allow users to disable the use of the Accept header *Michael Koziarski*
872
873 The accept header is poorly implemented by browsers and causes strange
874 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.
875 To disable the header you need to set:
876 config.action_controller.use_accept_header = false
877 * 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*
878
879 * Deprecated TemplateHandler line offset *Josh Peek*
880
881 * Allow caches_action to accept cache store options. #416. [José Valim]. Example:
882
883 caches_action :index, :redirected, :if => Proc.new { |c| !c.request.format.json? }, :expires_in => 1.hour
884
885 * Remove define_javascript_functions, javascript_include_tag and friends are far superior. *Michael Koziarski*
886
887 * Deprecate :use_full_path render option. The supplying the option no longer has an effect *Josh Peek*
888
889 * Add :as option to render a collection of partials with a custom local variable name. #509 *Simon Jefford, Pratik Naik*
890
891 render :partial => 'other_people', :collection => @people, :as => :person
892
893 This will let you access objects of @people as 'person' local variable inside 'other_people' partial template.
894
895 * time_zone_select: support for regexp matching of priority zones. Resolves #195 *Ernie Miller*
896
897 * Made ActionView::Base#render_file private *Josh Peek*
898
899 * 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*
900
901 This could cause some erroneous test failures if you were redirecting between controllers
902 in different namespaces and wrote your assertions relative to the root of the application.
903
904 * Remove follow_redirect from controller functional tests.
905
906 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=>...
907 * Fix polymorphic_url with singleton resources. #461 *Tammer Saleh*
908
909 * Replaced TemplateFinder abstraction with ViewLoadPaths *Josh Peek*
910
911 * Added block-call style to link_to [Sam Stephenson/David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
912
913 <% link_to(@profile) do %>
914 <strong><%= @profile.name %></strong> -- <span>Check it out!!</span>
915 <% end %>
916
917 * Performance: integration test benchmarking and profiling. *Jeremy Kemper*
918
919 * Make caching more aware of mime types. Ensure request format is not considered while expiring cache. *Jonathan del Strother*
920
921 * Drop ActionController::Base.allow_concurrency flag *Josh Peek*
922
923 * More efficient concat and capture helpers. Remove ActionView::Base.erb_variable. *Jeremy Kemper*
924
925 * Added page.reload functionality. Resolves #277. *Sean Huber*
926
927 * 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*
928
929 * Allow caches_action to accept a layout option *José Valim*
930
931 * Added Rack processor *Ezra Zygmuntowicz, Josh Peek*
932
933
934 ## 2.1.0 (May 31st, 2008) ##

1341 * Added FormHelper#label. #8641, #9850 *jcoglan, Jarkko Laine*
1342
1343 * Added AtomFeedHelper (slightly improved from the atom_feed_helper plugin) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1344
1345 * Prevent errors when generating routes for uncountable resources, (i.e. sheep where plural == singluar). map.resources :sheep now creates sheep_index_url for the collection and sheep_url for the specific item. *Michael Koziarski*
1346
1347 * Added support for HTTP Only cookies (works in IE6+ and FF 2.0.5+) as an improvement for XSS attacks #8895 *Pratik Naik, Mark Somerville*
1348
1349 * Don't warn when a path segment precedes a required segment. Closes #9615. *Nicholas Seckar*
1350
1351 * Fixed CaptureHelper#content_for to work with the optional content parameter instead of just the block #9434 [sandofsky/wildchild].
1352
1353 * Added Mime::Type.register_alias for dealing with different formats using the same mime type [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1354
1355 class PostsController < ApplicationController
1356 before_filter :adjust_format_for_iphone
1357
1358 def index
1359 @posts = Post.find(:all)
1360
1361 respond_to do |format|
1362 format.html # => renders index.html.erb and uses "text/html" as the content type
1363 format.iphone # => renders index.iphone.erb and uses "text/html" as the content type
1364 end
1365 end
1366
1367
1368 private
1369 def adjust_format_for_iphone
1370 if request.env["HTTP_USER_AGENT"] && request.env["HTTP_USER_AGENT"][/iPhone/]
1371 request.format = :iphone
1372 end
1373 end
1374 end
1375
1376 * Added that render :json will automatically call .to_json unless it's being passed a string [David Heinemeier Hansson].
1377
1378 * Autolink behaves well with emails embedded in URLs. #7313 *Jeremy McAnally, Tarmo Tänav*
1379
1380 * Fixed that default layouts did not take the format into account #9564 *Pratik Naik*
1381
1382 * Fixed optimized route segment escaping. #9562 *wildchild, Jeremy Kemper*
1383
1384 * Added block acceptance to JavaScriptHelper#javascript_tag. #7527 *Bob Silva, Tarmo Tänav, rmm5t*
1385
1386 * root_path returns '/' not ''. #9563 *Pratik Naik*
1387
1388 * Fixed that setting request.format should also affect respond_to blocks *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1389
1390 * Add option to force binary mode on tempfile used for fixture_file_upload. #6380 *Jonathan Viney*
1391
1392 * Fixed that resource namespaces wouldn't stick to all nested resources #9399 *pixeltrix*
1393
1394 * Moved ActionController::Macros::AutoComplete into the auto_complete plugin on the official Rails svn. #9512 *Pratik Naik*
1395
1396 * Moved ActionController::Macros::InPlaceEditing into the in_place_editor plugin on the official Rails svn. #9513 *Pratik Naik*
1397
1398 * Removed deprecated form of calling xml_http_request/xhr without the first argument being the http verb *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1399
1400 * Removed deprecated methods [David Heinemeier Hansson]:
1401
1402 - ActionController::Base#keep_flash (use flash.keep instead)
1403 - ActionController::Base#expire_matched_fragments (just call expire_fragment with a regular expression)
1404 - ActionController::Base.template_root/= methods (use ActionController#Base.view_paths/= instead)
1405 - ActionController::Base.cookie (use ActionController#Base.cookies[]= instead)
1406
1407 * Removed the deprecated behavior of appending ".png" to image_tag/image_path calls without an existing extension *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1408
1409 * 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*
1410
1411 * Optimise named route generation when using positional arguments. *Michael Koziarski*
1412
1413 This change delivers significant performance benefits for the most
1414 common usage scenarios for modern rails applications by avoiding the
1415 costly trip through url_for. Initial benchmarks indicate this is
1416 between 6 and 20 times as fast.
1417
1418 * Explicitly require active_record/query_cache before using it. *Jeremy Kemper*
1419
1420 * Fix layout overriding response status. #9476 *lotswholetime*
1421
1422 * Add field_set_tag for generating field_sets, closes #9477. *Damian Janowski*
1423
1424 * Allow additional parameters to be passed to named route helpers when using positional arguments. Closes #8930 *Ian White*
1425
1426 * Make render :partial work with a :collection of Hashes, previously this wasn't possible due to backwards compatibility restrictions. *Pratik Naik*
1427
1428 * request.host works with IPv6 addresses. #9458 *yuya*
1429
1430 * Fix bug where action caching sets the content type to the ActionCachePath object. Closes #9282 *mindforge*
1431
1432 * Find layouts even if they're not in the first view_paths directory. Closes #9258 *caio*
1433
1434 * Major improvement to the documentation for the options / select form helpers. Closes #9038 *Chris Kampmeier, jardeon, wesg*
1435
1436 * Fix number_to_human_size when using different precisions. Closes #7536. *RichardStrand, mpalmer*
1437
1438 * Added partial layouts (see example in action_view/lib/partials.rb) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1439
1440 * Allow you to set custom :conditions on resource routes. *Rick Olson*
1441
1442 * Fixed that file.content_type for uploaded files would include a trailing \r #9053 *Brad Greenlee*
1443
1444 * url_for now accepts a series of symbols representing the namespace of the record *Josh Knowles*
1445
1446 * Make :trailing_slash work with query parameters for url_for. Closes #4004 *nov*
1447
1448 * Make sure missing template exceptions actually say which template they were looking for. Closes #8683 *dasil003*
1449
1450 * Fix errors with around_filters which do not yield, restore 1.1 behaviour with after filters. Closes #8891 *Stefan Kaes*
1451
1452 After filters will *no longer* be run if an around_filter fails to yield, users relying on
1453 this behaviour are advised to put the code in question after a yield statement in an around filter.
1454
1455
1456 * Allow you to delete cookies with options. Closes #3685 *Josh Peek, Chris Wanstrath*
1457
1458 * Allow you to render views with periods in the name. Closes #8076 *Norbert Crombach*
1459
1460 render :partial => 'show.html.erb'
1461
1462 * Improve capture helper documentation. #8796 *Chris Kampmeier*
1463
1464 * 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*
1465
1466 * Allow sweepers to be created solely for expiring after controller actions, not model changes *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1467
1468 * Added assigns method to ActionController::Caching::Sweeper to easily access instance variables on the controller *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1469
1470 * Give the legacy X-POST_DATA_FORMAT header greater precedence during params parsing for backward compatibility. *Jeremy Kemper*
1471
1472 * Fixed that link_to with an href of # when using :method will not allow for click-through without JavaScript #7037 *Steven Bristol, Josh Peek*
1473
1474 * Fixed that radio_button_tag should generate unique ids #3353 *Bob Silva, Rebecca, Josh Peek*
1475
1476 * Fixed that HTTP authentication should work if the header is called REDIRECT_X_HTTP_AUTHORIZATION as well #6754 *Mislav Marohnić*
1477
1478 * Don't mistakenly interpret the request uri as the query string. #8731 *Pratik Naik, Jeremy Kemper*
1479
1480 * 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*
1481
1482 * Tolerate missing content type on multipart file uploads. Fix for Safari 3. *Jeremy Kemper*
1483
1484 * Deprecation: remove pagination. Install the classic_pagination plugin for forward compatibility, or move to the superior will_paginate plugin. #8157 *Josh Peek*
1485
1486 * Action caching is limited to GET requests returning 200 OK status. #3335 *tom@craz8.com, halfbyte, Dan Kubb, Josh Peek*
1487
1488 * Improve Text Helper test coverage. #7274 *Rob Sanheim, Josh Peek*
1489
1490 * Improve helper test coverage. #7208, #7212, #7215, #7233, #7234, #7235, #7236, #7237, #7238, #7241, #7243, #7244 *Rich Collins, Josh Peek*
1491
1492 * Improve UrlRewriter tests. #7207 *Rich Collins*
1493
1494 * 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*
1495
1496 * Assume html format when rendering partials in RJS. #8076 *Rick Olson*
1497
1498 * Don't double-escape url_for in views. #8144 *Rich Collins, Josh Peek*
1499
1500 * Allow JSON-style values for the :with option of observe_field. Closes #8557 *kommen*
1501
1502 * Remove RAILS_ROOT from backtrace paths. #8540 *Tim Pope*
1503
1504 * Routing: map.resource :logo routes to LogosController so the controller may be reused for multiple nestings or namespaces. *Jeremy Kemper*
1505
1506 * render :partial recognizes Active Record associations as Arrays. #8538 *Kamal Fariz Mahyuddin*
1507
1508 * Routing: drop semicolon and comma as route separators. *Jeremy Kemper*
1509
1510 * request.remote_ip understands X-Forwarded-For addresses with nonstandard whitespace. #7386 *moses*
1511
1512 * Don't prepare response when rendering a component. #8493 *jsierles*
1513
1514 * Reduce file stat calls when checking for template changes. #7736 *alex*
1515
1516 * Added custom path cache_page/expire_page parameters in addition to the options hashes [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1517
1518 def index
1519 caches_page(response.body, "/index.html")
1520 end
1521
1522 * Action Caching speedup. #8231 *Stefan Kaes*
1523
1524 * Wordsmith resources documentation. #8484 *marclove*
1525
1526 * Fix syntax error in code example for routing documentation. #8377. *Norbert Crombach*
1527
1528 * 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*
1529
1530 * Add support for assert_select_rjs with :show and :hide. #7780 *dchelimsky*
1531
1532 * Make assert_select's failure messages clearer about what failed. #7779 *dchelimsky*
1533
1534 * Introduce a default respond_to block for custom types. #8174 *Josh Peek*
1535
1536 * auto_complete_field takes a :method option so you can GET or POST. #8120 *zapnap*
1537
1538 * Added option to suppress :size when using :maxlength for FormTagHelper#text_field #3112 *Tim Pope*
1539
1540 * catch possible WSOD when trying to render a missing partial. Closes #8454 *Jonathan del Strother*
1541
1542 * Rewind request body after reading it, if possible. #8438 *s450r1*
1543
1544 * Resource namespaces are inherited by their has_many subresources. #8280 *marclove, Geoff Garside*
1545
1546 * Fix filtered parameter logging with nil parameter values. #8422 *choonkeat*
1547
1548 * 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*
1549
1550 * Document caches_action. #5419 *Jarkko Laine*
1551
1552 * Update to Prototype 1.5.1. *Sam Stephenson*
1553
1554 * Allow routes to be decalred under namespaces [Tobias Lütke]:
1555
1556 map.namespace :admin do |admin|
1557 admin.root :controller => "products"
1558 admin.feed 'feed.xml', :controller => 'products', :action => 'feed', :format => 'xml'
1559 end
1560
1561 * Update to script.aculo.us 1.7.1_beta3. *Thomas Fuchs*
1562
1563 * observe_form always sends the serialized form. #5271 *Manfred Stienstra, normelton@gmail.com*
1564
1565 * Parse url-encoded and multipart requests ourselves instead of delegating to CGI. *Jeremy Kemper*
1566
1567 * select :include_blank option can be set to a string instead of true, which just uses an empty string. #7664 *Wizard*
1568
1569 * Added url_for usage on render :location, which allows for record identification [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1570
1571 render :xml => person, :status => :created, :location => person
1572
1573 ...expands the location to person_url(person).
1574
1575 * 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*
1576
1577 * Add some performance enhancements to ActionView.
1578
1579 * Cache base_paths in @@cached_base_paths
1580 * Cache template extensions in @@cached_template_extension
1581 * Remove unnecessary rescues
1582
1583 * Assume that rendered partials go by the HTML format by default
1584
1585 def my_partial
1586 render :update do |page|
1587 # in this order
1588 # _foo.html.erb
1589 # _foo.erb
1590 # _foo.rhtml
1591 page.replace :foo, :partial => 'foo'
1592 end
1593 end
1594
1595 * Added record identifications to FormHelper#form_for and PrototypeHelper#remote_form_for [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
1596
1597 <% form_for(@post) do |f| %>
1598 ...
1599 <% end %>
1600
1601 This will expand to be the same as:
1602
1603 <% form_for :post, @post, :url => post_path(@post), :html => { :method => :put, :class => "edit_post", :id => "edit_post_45" } do |f| %>
1604 ...
1605 <% end %>
1606
1607 And for new records:
1608
1609 <% form_for(Post.new) do |f| %>
1610 ...
1611 <% end %>
1612
1613 This will expand to be the same as:
1614
1615 <% form_for :post, @post, :url => posts_path, :html => { :class => "new_post", :id => "new_post" } do |f| %>
1616 ...
1617 <% end %>
1618
1619 * Rationalize route path escaping according to RFC 2396 section 3.3. #7544, #8307. *Jeremy Kemper, Chris Roos, begemot, jugend*
1620
1621 * Added record identification with polymorphic routes for ActionController::Base#url_for and ActionView::Base#url_for [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
1622
1623 redirect_to(post) # => redirect_to(posts_url(post)) => Location: http://example.com/posts/1
1624 link_to(post.title, post) # => link_to(post.title, posts_url(post)) => <a href="/posts/1">Hello world</a>
1625
1626 Any method that calls url_for on its parameters will automatically benefit from this.
1627
1628 * Removed deprecated parameters_for_method_reference concept (legacy from before named routes) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1629
1630 * Add ActionController::Routing::Helpers, a module to contain common URL helpers such as polymorphic_url. *Nicholas Seckar*
1631
1632 * Included the HttpAuthentication plugin as part of core (ActionController::HttpAuthentication::Basic) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1633
1634 * Modernize documentation for form helpers. *Jeremy McAnally*
1635
1636 * Add brief introduction to REST to the resources documentation. *fearoffish*
1637
1638 * Fix various documentation typos throughout ActionPack. *Henrik N*
1639
1640 * Enhance documentation and add examples for url_for. *Jeremy McAnally*
1641
1642 * Fix documentation typo in routes. *Norbert Crombach, pam*
1643
1644 * Sweep flash when filter chain is halted. *Caio Chassot <lists@v2studio.com>*
1645
1646 * 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*
1647
1648 * Replace the current block/continuation filter chain handling by an implementation based on a simple loop. #8226 *Stefan Kaes*
1649
1650 * Update UrlWriter to accept :anchor parameter. Closes #6771. *Chris McGrath*
1651
1652 * Added RecordTagHelper for using RecordIdentifier conventions on divs and other container elements [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1653
1654 <% div_for(post) do %> <div id="post_45" class="post">
1655 <%= post.body %> What a wonderful world!
1656 <% end %> </div>
1657
1658 * Added page[record] accessor to JavaScriptGenerator that relies on RecordIdentifier to find the right dom id [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1659
1660 format.js do
1661 # Calls: new Effect.fade('post_45');
1662 render(:update) { |page| page[post].visual_effect(:fade) }
1663 end
1664
1665 * Added RecordIdentifier to enforce view conventions on records for dom ids, classes, and partial paths *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1666
1667 * Added map.namespace to deal with the common situation of admin sections and the like *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1668
1669 Before:
1670
1671 map.resources :products, :path_prefix => "admin", :controller => "admin/products", :collection => { :inventory => :get }, :member => { :duplicate => :post }
1672 map.resources :tags, :name_prefix => 'admin_product_', :path_prefix => "admin/products/:product_id", :controller => "admin/product_tags"
1673 map.resources :images, :name_prefix => 'admin_product_', :path_prefix => "admin/products/:product_id", :controller => "admin/product_images"
1674 map.resources :variants, :name_prefix => 'admin_product_', :path_prefix => "admin/products/:product_id", :controller => "admin/product_variants"
1675
1676 After:
1677
1678 map.namespace(:admin) do |admin|
1679 admin.resources :products,
1680 :collection => { :inventory => :get },
1681 :member => { :duplicate => :post },
1682 :has_many => [ :tags, :images, :variants ]
1683 end
1684
1685 * Added :name_prefix as standard for nested resources [David Heinemeier Hansson]. WARNING: May be backwards incompatible with your app
1686
1687 Before:
1688
1689 map.resources :emails do |emails|
1690 emails.resources :comments, :name_prefix => "email_"
1691 emails.resources :attachments, :name_prefix => "email_"
1692 end
1693
1694 After:
1695
1696 map.resources :emails do |emails|
1697 emails.resources :comments
1698 emails.resources :attachments
1699 end
1700
1701 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.
1702
1703 * Added :has_many and :has_one for declaring plural and singular resources beneath the current *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1704
1705 Before:
1706
1707 map.resources :notes do |notes|
1708 notes.resources :comments
1709 notes.resources :attachments
1710 notes.resource :author
1711 end
1712
1713 After:
1714
1715 map.resources :notes, :has_many => [ :comments, :attachments ], :has_one => :author
1716
1717 * Added that render :xml will try to call to_xml if it can [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Makes these work:
1718
1719 render :xml => post
1720 render :xml => comments
1721
1722 * 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*
1723
1724 render :xml => post.to_xml, :status => :created, :location => post_url(post)
1725
1726 * Ensure that render_text only adds string content to the body of the response *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1727
1728 * Return the string representation from an Xml Builder when rendering a partial. Closes #5044 *Tim Pope*
1729
1730 * Fixed that parameters from XML should also be presented in a hash with indifferent access *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1731
1732 * 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*
1733
1734 * 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*
1735
1736 * Allow layouts with extension of .html.erb. Closes #8032 *Josh Knowles*
1737
1738 * Change default respond_to templates for xml and rjs formats. *Rick Olson*
1739
1740 * Default xml template goes from #{action_name}.rxml => #{action_name}.xml.builder.
1741 * Default rjs template goes from #{action_name}.rjs => #{action_name}.js.rjs.
1742
1743 You can still specify your old templates:
1744
1745 respond_to do |format|
1746 format.xml do
1747 render :action => "#{action_name}.rxml"
1748 end
1749 end
1750
1751 * 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*
1752
1753 * Fix WSOD when template compilation fails *Rick Olson*
1754
1755 * 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*
1756
1757 * Highlight helper highlights one or many terms in a single pass. *Jeremy Kemper*
1758
1759 * 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*
1760
1761 * Added that FormTagHelper#submit_tag will return to its original state if the submit fails and you're using :disable_with *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1762
1763 * Cleaned up, corrected, and mildly expanded ActionPack documentation. Closes #7190 *Jeremy McAnally*
1764
1765 * Small collection of ActionController documentation cleanups. Closes #7319 *Jeremy McAnally*
1766
1767 * Make sure the route expiry hash is constructed by comparing the to_param-ized values of each hash. *Jamis Buck*
1768
1769 * Allow configuration of the default action cache path for #caches_action calls. *Rick Olson*
1770
1771 class ListsController < ApplicationController
1772 caches_action :index, :cache_path => Proc.new { |controller|

1775 controller.send(:lists_url) }
1776 end
1777
1778 * Performance: patch cgi/session/pstore to require digest/md5 once rather than per #initialize. #7583 *Stefan Kaes*
1779
1780 * Cookie session store: ensure that new sessions doesn't reuse data from a deleted session in the same request. *Jeremy Kemper*
1781
1782 * Deprecation: verification with :redirect_to => :named_route shouldn't be deprecated. #7525 *Justin French*
1783
1784 * Cookie session store: raise ArgumentError when :session_key is blank. *Jeremy Kemper*
1785
1786 * 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*
1787
1788 * Consistent public/protected/private visibility for chained methods. #7813 *Dan Manges*
1789
1790 * Prefer MIME constants to strings. #7707 *Dan Kubb*
1791
1792 * 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*
1793
1794 \# 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]
1795 * Added Request#url that returns the complete URL used for the request *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1796
1797 * Extract dynamic scaffolding into a plugin. #7700 *Josh Peek*
1798
1799 * Added user/password options for url_for to add http authentication in a URL *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1800
1801 * Fixed that FormTagHelper#text_area_tag should disregard :size option if it's not a string *Brendon Davidson*
1802
1803 * 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*
1804
1805 * session_enabled? works with session :off. #6680 *Jonathan del Strother*
1806
1807 * Added :port and :host handling to UrlRewriter (which unified url_for usage, regardless of whether it's called in view or controller) #7616 *alancfrancis*
1808
1809 * Allow send_file/send_data to use a registered mime type as the :type parameter #7620 *jonathan*
1810
1811 * Allow routing requirements on map.resource(s) #7633 [quixoten]. Example:
1812
1813 map.resources :network_interfaces, :requirements => { :id => /^\d+\.\d+\.\d+\.\d+$/ }
1814
1815 * Cookie session store: empty and unchanged sessions don't write a cookie. *Jeremy Kemper*
1816
1817 * Added helper(:all) as a way to include all helpers from app/helpers/**/*.rb in ApplicationController *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1818
1819 * Integration tests: introduce methods for other HTTP methods. #6353 *caboose*
1820
1821 * Routing: better support for escaped values in route segments. #7544 [Chris
1822 Roos]
1823 * 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*
1824
1825 Example config/environment.rb:
1826 # Use an application-wide secret key and the default SHA1 message digest.
1827 config.action_controller.session = { :secret => "can't touch this" }
1828
1829 # Store a secret key per user and employ a stronger message digest.
1830 config.action_controller.session = {
1831 :digest => 'SHA512',
1832 :secret => Proc.new { User.current.secret_key }
1833 }
1834
1835 * 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.
1836
1837 * Added caching option to AssetTagHelper#stylesheet_link_tag and AssetTagHelper#javascript_include_tag [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
1838
1839 stylesheet_link_tag :all, :cache => true # when ActionController::Base.perform_caching is false =>
1840 <link href="/stylesheets/style1.css" media="screen" rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" />
1841 <link href="/stylesheets/styleB.css" media="screen" rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" />
1842 <link href="/stylesheets/styleX2.css" media="screen" rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" />
1843
1844 stylesheet_link_tag :all, :cache => true # when ActionController::Base.perform_caching is true =>
1845 <link href="/stylesheets/all.css" media="screen" rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" />
1846
1847 ...when caching is on, all.css is the concatenation of style1.css, styleB.css, and styleX2.css.
1848 Same deal for JavaScripts.
1849
1850 * 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*
1851
1852 * Added default mime type for CSS (Mime::CSS) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1853
1854 * 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*
1855
1856 * Added X-Runtime to all responses with the request run time *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1857
1858 * Add Mime::Type convenience methods to check the current mime type. *Rick Olson*
1859
1860 request.format.html? # => true if Mime::HTML
1861 request.format.jpg? # => true if Mime::JPG
1862
1863 \# ActionController sample usage:
1864 \# the session will be disabled for non html/ajax requests
1865 session :off, :if => Proc.new { |req| !(req.format.html? || req.format.js?) }
1866
1867 * Performance: patch cgi/session to require digest/md5 once rather than per #create_new_id. *Stefan Kaes*
1868
1869 * Add a :url_based_filename => true option to ActionController::Streaming::send_file, which allows URL-based filenames. *Thomas Fuchs*
1870
1871 * Fix that FormTagHelper#submit_tag using :disable_with should trigger the onsubmit handler of its form if available *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1872
1873 * Fix #render_file so that TemplateError is called with the correct params and you don't get the WSOD. *Rick Olson*
1874
1875 * 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
1876 superclass' view_paths. [Rick Olson]
1877 * Allow Controllers to have multiple view_paths instead of a single template_root. Closes #2754 *John Long*
1878
1879 * Add much-needed html-scanner tests. Fixed CDATA parsing bug. *Rick Olson*
1880
1881 * improve error message for Routing for named routes. Closes #7346 *Rob Sanheim*
1882
1883 * Added enhanced docs to routing assertions. Closes #7359 *Rob Sanheim*
1884
1885 * fix form_for example in ActionController::Resources documentation. Closes #7362 *gnarg*
1886
1887 * 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*
1888
1889 * Added FormBuilder#submit as a delegate for FormTagHelper#submit_tag *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1890
1891 * 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*
1892
1893 * Change the query parser to map empty GET params to "" rather than nil. Closes #5694. *Nicholas Seckar*
1894
1895 * date_select and datetime_select take a :default option. #7052 *Nik Wakelin*
1896 date_select "post", "written_on", :default => 3.days.from_now
1897 date_select "credit_card", "bill_due", :default => { :day => 20 }
1898
1899 * select :multiple => true suffixes the attribute name with [] unless already suffixed. #6977 *nik.kakelin, ben, julik*
1900
1901 * Improve routes documentation. #7095 *zackchandler*
1902
1903 * 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*
1904
1905 * Resource member routes require :id, eliminating the ambiguous overlap with collection routes. #7229 *dkubb*
1906
1907 * Remove deprecated assertions. *Jeremy Kemper*
1908
1909 * Change session restoration to allow namespaced models to be autoloaded. Closes #6348. *Nicholas Seckar*

1912
1913 * Fix overly greedy rescues when loading helpers. Fixes #6268. *Nicholas Seckar*

1942
1943 * Recognize the .txt extension as Mime::TEXT *Rick Olson*
1944
1945 * Fix parsing of array[] CGI parameters so extra empty values aren't included. #6252 *Nicholas Seckar, aiwilliams, brentrowland*

1970
1971 * 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*
1972
1973 * Singleton resources: POST /singleton => create, GET /singleton/new => new. *Jeremy Kemper*

1998
1999 GET /account
2000 GET /account;edit
2001 UPDATE /account
2002 DELETE /account
2003
2004 * 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*
2005 # application/json response with body 'Element.show({:name: "David"})'
2006 respond_to do |format|
2007 format.json { render :json => { :name => "David" }.to_json, :callback => 'Element.show' }
2008 end
2009
2010 * Makes :discard_year work without breaking multi-attribute parsing in AR. #1260, #3800 *sean@ardismg.com, jmartin@desertflood.com, stephen@touset.org, Bob Silva*
2011
2012 * Adds html id attribute to date helper elements. #1050, #1382 *mortonda@dgrmm.net, David North, Bob Silva*
2013
2014 * Add :index and @auto_index capability to model driven date/time selects. #847, #2655 *moriq, Doug Fales, Bob Silva*
2015
2016 * Add :order to datetime_select, select_datetime, and select_date. #1427 *Timothee Peignier, Patrick Lenz, Bob Silva*
2017
2018 * Added time_select to work with time values in models. Update scaffolding. #2489, #2833 *Justin Palmer, Andre Caum, Bob Silva*
2019
2020 * Added :include_seconds to select_datetime, datetime_select and time_select. #2998 *csn, Bob Silva*
2021
2022 * All date/datetime selects can now accept an array of month names with :use_month_names. Allows for localization. #363 *tomasj, Bob Silva*
2023
2024 * Adds :time_separator to select_time and :date_separator to select_datetime. Preserves BC. #3811 *Bob Silva*
2025
2026 * Added map.root as an alias for map.connect '' *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2027
2028 * 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:
2029
2030 GET /posts/5.xml | request.format => Mime::XML
2031 GET /posts/5.xhtml | request.format => Mime::HTML
2032 GET /posts/5 | request.format => request.accepts.first (usually Mime::HTML for browsers)
2033
2034 * Added the option for extension aliases to mime type registration [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example (already in the default routes):
2035
2036 Mime::Type.register "text/html", :html, %w( application/xhtml+xml ), %w( xhtml )
2037
2038 ...will respond on both .html and .xhtml.
2039
2040 * @response.redirect_url works with 201 Created responses: just return headers['Location'] rather than checking the response status. *Jeremy Kemper*
2041
2042 * Added CSV to Mime::SET so that respond_to csv will work *Cody Fauser*
2043
2044 * Fixed that HEAD should return the proper Content-Length header (that is, actually use @body.size, not just 0) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2045
2046 * 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*
2047
2048 * Update Routing to complain when :controller is not specified by a route. Closes #6669. *Nicholas Seckar*
2049
2050 * Ensure render_to_string cleans up after itself when an exception is raised. #6658 *Rob Sanheim*
2051
2052 * Extract template_changed_since? from compile_template? so plugins may override its behavior for non-file-based templates. #6651 *Jeff Barczewski*
2053
2054 * Update to Prototype and script.aculo.us [5579]. *Thomas Fuchs*
2055
2056 * simple_format helper doesn't choke on nil. #6644 *jerry426*
2057
2058 * Update to Prototype 1.5.0_rc2 [5550] which makes it work in Opera again *Thomas Fuchs*
2059
2060 * 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*
2061
2062 * ActionView::Base.erb_variable accessor names the buffer variable used to render templates. Defaults to _erbout; use _buf for erubis. *Rick Olson*
2063
2064 * assert_select_rjs :remove. *Dylan Egan*
2065
2066 * Always clear model associations from session. #4795 *sd@notso.net, andylien@gmail.com*
2067
2068 * Update to Prototype 1.5.0_rc2. *Sam Stephenson*
2069
2070 * Remove JavaScriptLiteral in favor of ActiveSupport::JSON::Variable. *Sam Stephenson*
2071
2072 * Sync ActionController::StatusCodes::STATUS_CODES with http://www.iana.org/assignments/http-status-codes. #6586 *dkubb*
2073
2074 * 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*
2075
2076 * assert_response supports symbolic status codes. #6569 *Kevin Clark*
2077 assert_response :ok
2078 assert_response :not_found
2079 assert_response :forbidden
2080
2081 * Cache parsed query parameters. #6559 *Stefan Kaes*
2082
2083 * Deprecate JavaScriptHelper#update_element_function, which is superseeded by RJS *Thomas Fuchs*
2084
2085 * pluralize helper interprets nil as zero. #6474 *Tim Pope*
2086
2087 * Fix invalid test fixture exposed by stricter Ruby 1.8.5 multipart parsing. #6524 *Bob Silva*
2088
2089 * Set ActionView::Base.default_form_builder once rather than passing the :builder option to every form or overriding the form helper methods. *Jeremy Kemper*
2090
2091 * Deprecate expire_matched_fragments. Use expire_fragment instead. #6535 *Bob Silva*
2092
2093 * 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*
2094
2095 * Deprecate start_form_tag and end_form_tag. Use form_tag / '</form>' from now on. *Rick Olson*
2096
2097 * Added block-usage to PrototypeHelper#form_remote_tag, document block-usage of FormTagHelper#form_tag *Rick Olson*
2098
2099 * Add a 0 margin/padding div around the hidden _method input tag that form_tag outputs. *Rick Olson*
2100
2101 * Added block-usage to TagHelper#content_tag [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
2102
2103 <% content_tag :div, :class => "strong" %>
2104 Hello world!
2105 <% end %>
2106
2107 Will output:
2108 <div class="strong">Hello world!</div>
2109
2110 * Deprecated UrlHelper#link_to_image and UrlHelper#link_to :post => true #6409 *Bob Silva*
2111
2112 * 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*
2113
2114 * Fixed that setting RAILS_ASSET_ID to "" should not add a trailing slash after assets #6454 *Bob Silva/chrismear*
2115
2116 * Force *_url named routes to show the host in ActionView *Rick Olson*
2117
2118 <%= url_for ... %> # no host
2119 <%= foo_path %> # no host
2120 <%= foo_url %> # host!
2121
2122 * Add support for converting blocks into function arguments to JavaScriptGenerator#call and JavaScriptProxy#call. *Sam Stephenson*
2123
2124 * Add JavaScriptGenerator#literal for wrapping a string in an object whose #to_json is the string itself. *Sam Stephenson*
2125
2126 * Add <%= escape_once html %> to escape html while leaving any currently escaped entities alone. Fix button_to double-escaping issue. *Rick Olson*
2127
2128 * Fix double-escaped entities, such as &amp;amp;, &amp;#123;, etc. *Rick Olson*
2129
2130 * Fix deprecation warnings when rendering the template error template. *Nicholas Seckar*
2131
2132 * Fix routing to correctly determine when generation fails. Closes #6300. [psross].
2133
2134 * Fix broken assert_generates when extra keys are being checked. *Jamis Buck*
2135
2136 * Replace KCODE checks with String#chars for truncate. Closes #6385 *Manfred Stienstra*
2137
2138 * 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.*
2139
2140 * Use String#chars in TextHelper::excerpt. Closes #6386 *Manfred Stienstra*
2141
2142 * Install named routes into ActionView::Base instead of proxying them to the view via helper_method. Closes #5932. *Nicholas Seckar*
2143
2144 * Update to latest Prototype and script.aculo.us trunk versions *Thomas Fuchs*
2145
2146 * Fix relative URL root matching problems. *Mark Imbriaco*
2147
2148 * Fix filter skipping in controller subclasses. #5949, #6297, #6299 *Martin Emde*
2149
2150 * 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*
2151
2152 * Rename test assertion to prevent shadowing. Closes #6306. *psross*
2153
2154 * Fixed that NumberHelper#number_to_delimiter should respect precision of higher than two digits #6231 *Philip Hallstrom*
2155
2156 * Fixed that FormHelper#radio_button didn't respect an :id being passed in #6266 *evansj*
2157
2158 * Added an html_options hash parameter to javascript_tag() and update_page_tag() helpers #6311 [tzaharia]. Example:
2159
2160 update_page_tag :defer => 'true' { |page| ... }
2161
2162 Gives:
2163
2164 <script defer="true" type="text/javascript">...</script>
2165
2166 Which is needed for dealing with the IE6 DOM when it's not yet fully loaded.
2167
2168 * Fixed that rescue template path shouldn't be hardcoded, then it's easier to hook in your own #6295 *Mike Naberezny*
2169
2170 * Fixed escaping of backslashes in JavaScriptHelper#escape_javascript #6302 *sven@c3d2.de*
2171
2172 * Fixed that some 500 rescues would cause 500's themselves because the response had not yet been generated #6329 *cmselmer*
2173
2174 * respond_to :html doesn't assume .rhtml. #6281 *Hampton Catlin*
2175
2176 * Fixed some deprecation warnings in ActionPack *Rick Olson*
2177
2178 * assert_select_rjs decodes escaped unicode chars since the Javascript generators encode them. #6240 *japgolly*
2179
2180 * Deprecation: @cookies, @headers, @request, @response will be removed after 1.2. Use the corresponding method instead. *Jeremy Kemper*
2181
2182 * 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:
2183
2184 head :status => 404 # expands to "404 Not Found"
2185 head :status => :not_found # expands to "404 Not Found"
2186 head :status => :created # expands to "201 Created"
2187
2188 * Add head(options = {}) for responses that have no body. [Jamis Buck]. Examples:
2189
2190 head :status => 404 # return an empty response with a 404 status
2191 head :location => person_path(@person), :status => 201
2192
2193 * Fix bug that kept any before_filter except the first one from being able to halt the before_filter chain. *Rick Olson*
2194
2195 * strip_links is case-insensitive. #6285 *tagoh, Bob Silva*
2196
2197 * Clear the cache of possible controllers whenever Routes are reloaded. *Nicholas Seckar*
2198
2199 * Filters overhaul including meantime filter support using around filters + blocks. #5949 *Martin Emde, Roman Le Negrate, Stefan Kaes, Jeremy Kemper*
2200
2201 * Update RJS render tests. *sam*
2202
2203 * Update CGI process to allow sessions to contain namespaced models. Closes #4638. *dfelstead@site5.com*
2204
2205 * Fix routing to respect user provided requirements and defaults when assigning default routing options (such as :action => 'index'). Closes #5950. *Nicholas Seckar*
2206
2207 * Rescue Errno::ECONNRESET to handle an unexpectedly closed socket connection. Improves SCGI reliability. #3368, #6226 *sdsykes, fhanshaw@vesaria.com*
2208
2209 * Added that respond_to blocks will automatically set the content type to be the same as is requested [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
2210
2211 respond_to do |format|
2212 format.html { render :text => "I'm being sent as text/html" }
2213 format.rss { render :text => "I'm being sent as application/rss+xml" }
2214 format.atom { render :text => "I'm being sent as application/xml", :content_type => Mime::XML }
2215 end
2216
2217 * Added utf-8 as the default charset for all renders. You can change this default using ActionController::Base.default_charset=(encoding) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2218
2219 * Added proper getters and setters for content type and charset [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example of what we used to do:
2220
2221 response.headers["Content-Type"] = "application/atom+xml; charset=utf-8"
2222
2223 ...now:
2224
2225 response.content_type = Mime::ATOM
2226 response.charset = "utf-8"
2227
2228 * Updated prototype.js to 1.5.0_rc1 with latest fixes. *Rick Olson*
2229
2230 - XPATH support
2231 - Make Form.getElements() return elements in the correct order
2232 - fix broken Form.serialize return
2233
2234 * Declare file extensions exempt from layouts. #6219 *brandon*
2235 Example: ActionController::Base.exempt_from_layout 'rpdf'
2236
2237 * Add chained replace/update support for assert_select_rjs *Rick Olson*
2238
2239 Given RJS like...
2240
2241 page['test1'].replace "<div id=\"1\">foo</div>"
2242 page['test2'].replace_html "<div id=\"2\">foo</div>"
2243
2244 Test it with...
2245
2246 assert_select_rjs :chained_replace
2247 assert_select_rjs :chained_replace, "test1"
2248
2249 assert_select_rjs :chained_replace_html
2250 assert_select_rjs :chained_replace_html, "test2"
2251
2252 * Load helpers in alphabetical order for consistency. Resolve cyclic javascript_helper dependency. #6132, #6178 *choonkeat@gmail.com*
2253
2254 * Skip params with empty names, such as the &=Save query string from <input type="submit"/>. #2569 *Manfred Stienstra, raphinou@yahoo.com*
2255
2256 * Fix assert_tag so that :content => "foo" does not match substrings, but only exact strings. Use :content => /foo/ to match substrings. #2799 *Eric Hodel*
2257
2258 * Add descriptive messages to the exceptions thrown by cgi_methods. #6091, #6103 *Nicholas Seckar, Bob Silva*
2259
2260 * Update JavaScriptGenerator#show/hide/toggle/remove to new Prototype syntax for multiple ids, #6068 *petermichaux@gmail.com*
2261
2262 * Update UrlWriter to support :only_path. *Nicholas Seckar, Dave Thomas*
2263
2264 * 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:
2265
2266 link_to("Hider", nil, :class => "hider_link") { |p| p[:something].hide }
2267
2268 ...can be written like this:
2269
2270 link_to("Hider", :class => "hider_link") { |p| p[:something].hide }
2271
2272 * Update to script.aculo.us 1.6.3 *Thomas Fuchs*
2273
2274 * Update to Prototype 1.5.0_rc1 *sam*
2275
2276 * Added access to nested attributes in RJS #4548 [richcollins@gmail.com]. Examples:
2277
2278 page['foo']['style'] # => $('foo').style;
2279 page['foo']['style']['color'] # => $('blank_slate').style.color;
2280 page['foo']['style']['color'] = 'red' # => $('blank_slate').style.color = 'red';
2281 page['foo']['style'].color = 'red' # => $('blank_slate').style.color = 'red';
2282
2283 * Fixed that AssetTagHelper#image_tag and others using compute_public_path should not modify the incoming source argument (closes #5102) *eule@space.ch*
2284
2285 * Deprecated the auto-appending of .png to AssetTagHelper#image_tag calls that doesn't have an extension *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2286
2287 * Fixed FormOptionsHelper#select to respect :selected value #5813
2288
2289 * Fixed TextHelper#simple_format to deal with multiple single returns within a single paragraph #5835 *moriq@moriq.com*
2290
2291 * Fixed TextHelper#pluralize to handle 1 as a string #5909 *rails@bencurtis.com*
2292
2293 * Improved resolution of DateHelper#distance_of_time_in_words for better precision #5994 *Bob Silva*
2294
2295 * Changed that uncaught exceptions raised any where in the application will cause RAILS_ROOT/public/500.html to be read and shown instead of just the static "Application error (Rails)" *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2296
2297 * Integration tests: thoroughly test ActionController::Integration::Session. #6022 *Kevin Clark*
2298 (tests skipped unless you `gem install mocha`)
2299
2300 * Added deprecation language for pagination which will become a plugin by Rails 2.0 *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2301
2302 * Added deprecation language for in_place_editor and auto_complete_field that both pieces will become plugins by Rails 2.0 *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2303
2304 * Deprecated all of ActionController::Dependencies. All dependency loading is now handled from Active Support *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2305
2306 * Added assert_select* for CSS selector-based testing (deprecates assert_tag) #5936 *assaf.arkin@gmail.com*
2307
2308 * radio_button_tag generates unique id attributes. #3353 *Bob Silva, somekool@gmail.com*
2309
2310 * strip_tags passes through blank args such as nil or "". #2229, #6702 *duncan@whomwah.com, dharana*
2311
2312 * Cleanup assert_tag :children counting. #2181 *jamie@bravenet.com*
2313
2314 * button_to accepts :method so you can PUT and DELETE with it. #6005 *Dan Webb*
2315
2316 * Update sanitize text helper to strip plaintext tags, and <img src="javascript:bang">. *Rick Olson*
2317
2318 * Update routing documentation. Closes #6017 *Nathan Witmer*
2319
2320 * Add routing tests to assert that RoutingError is raised when conditions aren't met. Closes #6016 *Nathan Witmer*
2321
2322 * Deprecation: update docs. #5998 *Jakob Skjerning, Kevin Clark*
2323
2324 * Make auto_link parse a greater subset of valid url formats. *Jamis Buck*
2325
2326 * Integration tests: headers beginning with X aren't excluded from the HTTP_ prefix, so X-Requested-With becomes HTTP_X_REQUESTED_WITH as expected. *Mike Clark*
2327
2328 * Tighten rescue clauses. #5985 *james@grayproductions.net*
2329
2330 * Fix send_data documentation typo. #5982 *brad@madriska.com*
2331
2332 * Switch to using FormEncodedPairParser for parsing request parameters. *Nicholas Seckar, David Heinemeier Hansson*
2333
2334 * respond_to .html now always renders #{action_name}.rhtml so that registered custom template handlers do not override it in priority. Custom mime types require a block and throw proper error now. *Tobias Lütke*
2335
2336 * Deprecation: test deprecated instance vars in partials. *Jeremy Kemper*
2337
2338 * Add UrlWriter to allow writing urls from Mailers and scripts. *Nicholas Seckar*
2339
2340 * Clean up and run the Active Record integration tests by default. #5854 *Kevin Clark, Jeremy Kemper*
2341
2342 * Correct example in cookies docs. #5832 *jessemerriman@warpmail.net*
2343
2344 * Updated to script.aculo.us 1.6.2 *Thomas Fuchs*
2345
2346 * Relax Routing's anchor pattern warning; it was preventing use of [^/] inside restrictions. *Nicholas Seckar*
2347
2348 * Add controller_paths variable to Routing. *Nicholas Seckar*
2349
2350 * Fix assert_redirected_to issue with named routes for module controllers. *Rick Olson*
2351
2352 * Tweak RoutingError message to show option diffs, not just missing named route significant keys. *Rick Olson*
2353
2354 * Invoke method_missing directly on hidden actions. Closes #3030. *Nicholas Seckar*
2355
2356 * Require Tempfile explicitly for TestUploadedFile due to changes in class auto loading. *Rick Olson*
2357
2358 * Add RoutingError exception when RouteSet fails to generate a path from a Named Route. *Rick Olson*
2359
2360 * Replace Reloadable with Reloadable::Deprecated. *Nicholas Seckar*
2361
2362 * Deprecation: check whether instance variables have been monkeyed with before assigning them to deprecation proxies. Raises a RuntimeError if so. *Jeremy Kemper*
2363
2364 * Add support for the param_name parameter to the auto_complete_field helper. #5026 *david.a.williams@gmail.com*
2365
2366 * Deprecation! @params, @session, @flash will be removed after 1.2. Use the corresponding instance methods instead. You'll get printed warnings during tests and logged warnings in dev mode when you access either instance variable directly. *Jeremy Kemper*
2367
2368 * Make Routing noisy when an anchor regexp is assigned to a segment. #5674 *François Beausoleil*
2369
2370 * Added months and years to the resolution of DateHelper#distance_of_time_in_words, such that "60 days ago" becomes "2 months ago" #5611 *pjhyett@gmail.com*
2371
2372 * Short documentation to mention use of Mime::Type.register. #5710 *choonkeat@gmail.com*
2373
2374 * Make controller_path available as an instance method. #5724 *jmckible@gmail.com*
2375
2376 * Update query parser to support adjacent hashes. *Nicholas Seckar*
2377
2378 * 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.*
2379
2380 * Restrict Request Method hacking with ?_method to POST requests. *Rick Olson*
2381
2382 * Fix bug when passing multiple options to SimplyRestful, like :new => { :preview => :get, :draft => :get }. *Rick Olson, Josh Susser, Lars Pind*
2383
2384 * Dup the options passed to map.resources so that multiple resources get the same options. *Rick Olson*
2385
2386 * Fixed the new_#{resource}_url route and added named route tests for Simply Restful. *Rick Olson*
2387
2388 * Added map.resources from the Simply Restful plugin [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples (the API has changed to use plurals!):
2389
2390 map.resources :messages
2391 map.resources :messages, :comments
2392 map.resources :messages, :new => { :preview => :post }
2393
2394 * Fixed that integration simulation of XHRs should set Accept header as well *Edward Frederick*
2395
2396 * TestRequest#reset_session should restore a TestSession, not a hash *Michael Koziarski*
2397
2398 * Don't search a load-path of '.' for controller files *Jamis Buck*
2399
2400 * Update integration.rb to require test_process explicitly instead of via Dependencies. *Nicholas Seckar*
2401
2402 * Fixed that you can still access the flash after the flash has been reset in reset_session. Closes #5584 *lmarlow*
2403
2404 * Allow form_for and fields_for to work with indexed form inputs. *Jeremy Kemper, Matt Lyon*
2405
2406 <% form_for 'post[]', @post do |f| -%>
2407 <% end -%>
2408
2409 * Remove leak in development mode by replacing define_method with module_eval. *Nicholas Seckar*
2410
2411 * Provide support for decimal columns to form helpers. Closes #5672. *Dave Thomas*
2412
2413 * Update documentation for erb trim syntax. #5651 *matt@mattmargolis.net*
2414

2417 * Reset @html_document between requests so assert_tag works. #4810 *Jarkko Laine, easleydp@gmail.com*
2418
2419 * Update render :partial documentation. #5646 *matt@mattmargolis.net*
2420
2421 * Integration tests behave well with render_component. #4632 *edward.frederick@revolution.com, dev.rubyonrails@maxdunn.com*
2422
2423 * Added exception handling of missing layouts #5373 *chris@ozmm.org*
2424
2425 * Fixed that real files and symlinks should be treated the same when compiling templates #5438 *zachary@panandscan.com*
2426
2427 * Fixed that the flash should be reset when reset_session is called #5584 *Shugo Maeda*
2428
2429 * Added special case for "1 Byte" in NumberHelper#number_to_human_size #5593 *murpyh@rubychan.de*
2430
2431 * Fixed proper form-encoded parameter parsing for requests with "Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded; charset=utf-8" (note the presence of a charset directive) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2432
2433 * Add route_name_path method to generate only the path for a named routes. For example, map.person will add person_path. *Nicholas Seckar*
2434
2435 * Avoid naming collision among compiled view methods. *Jeremy Kemper*
2436
2437 * Fix CGI extensions when they expect string but get nil in Windows. Closes #5276 *Mislav Marohnić*
2438
2439 * Determine the correct template_root for deeply nested components. #2841 *s.brink@web.de*
2440
2441 * Fix that routes with *path segments in the recall can generate URLs. *Rick Olson*
2442
2443 * Fix strip_links so that it doesn't hang on multiline <acronym> tags *Jamis Buck*
2444
2445 * Remove problematic control chars in rescue template. #5316 *Stefan Kaes*
2446
2447 * Make sure passed routing options are not mutated by routing code. #5314 *Blair Zajac*
2448
2449 * Make sure changing the controller from foo/bar to bing/bang does not change relative to foo. *Jamis Buck*
2450
2451 * Escape the path before routing recognition. #3671
2452
2453 * Make sure :id and friends are unescaped properly. #5275 *me@julik.nl*
2454
2455 * Fix documentation for with_routing to reflect new reality. #5281 *rramdas@gmail.com*
2456
2457 * Rewind readable CGI params so others may reread them (such as CGI::Session when passing the session id in a multipart form). #210 *mklame@atxeu.com, matthew@walker.wattle.id.au*
2458
2459 * Added Mime::TEXT (text/plain) and Mime::ICS (text/calendar) as new default types *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2460
2461 * Added Mime::Type.register(string, symbol, synonyms = []) for adding new custom mime types [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example: Mime::Type.register("image/gif", :gif)
2462
2463 * Added support for Mime objects in render :content_type option [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example: render :text => some_atom, :content_type => Mime::ATOM
2464
2465 * Add :status option to send_data and send_file. Defaults to '200 OK'. #5243 *Manfred Stienstra <m.stienstra@fngtps.com>*
2466
2467 * Routing rewrite. Simpler, faster, easier to understand. The published API for config/routes.rb is unchanged, but nearly everything else is different, so expect breakage in plugins and libs that try to fiddle with routes. *Nicholas Seckar, Jamis Buck*
2468
2469 map.connect '/foo/:id', :controller => '...', :action => '...'
2470 map.connect '/foo/:id.:format', :controller => '...', :action => '...'
2471 map.connect '/foo/:id', ..., :conditions => { :method => :get }
2472
2473 * Cope with missing content type and length headers. Parse parameters from multipart and urlencoded request bodies only. *Jeremy Kemper*
2474
2475 * Accept multipart PUT parameters. #5235 *guy.naor@famundo.com*
2476
2477 * Added interrogation of params[:format] to determine Accept type. If :format is specified and matches a declared extension, like "rss" or "xml", that mime type will be put in front of the accept handler. This means you can link to the same action from different extensions and use that fact to determine output [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
2478
2479 class WeblogController < ActionController::Base
2480 def index
2481 @posts = Post.find :all
2482
2483 respond_to do |format|
2484 format.html
2485 format.xml { render :xml => @posts.to_xml }
2486 format.rss { render :action => "feed.rxml" }
2487 end
2488 end
2489 end
2490
2491 \# returns HTML when requested by a browser, since the browser
2492 \# has the HTML mimetype at the top of its priority list
2493 Accept: text/html
2494 GET /weblog
2495
2496 \# returns the XML
2497 Accept: application/xml
2498 GET /weblog
2499
2500 \# returns the HTML
2501 Accept: application/xml
2502 GET /weblog.html
2503
2504 \# returns the XML
2505 Accept: text/html
2506 GET /weblog.xml
2507
2508 All this relies on the fact that you have a route that includes .:format.
2509
2510 * Expanded :method option in FormTagHelper#form_tag, FormHelper#form_for, PrototypeHelper#remote_form_for, PrototypeHelper#remote_form_tag, and PrototypeHelper#link_to_remote to allow for verbs other than GET and POST by automatically creating a hidden form field named _method, which will simulate the other verbs over post *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2511
2512 * Added :method option to UrlHelper#link_to, which allows for using other verbs than GET for the link. This replaces the :post option, which is now deprecated. Example: link_to "Destroy", person_url(:id => person), :method => :delete *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2513
2514 * follow_redirect doesn't complain about being redirected to the same controller. #5153 *dymo@mk.ukrtelecom.ua*
2515
2516 * Add layout attribute to response object with the name of the layout that was rendered, or nil if none rendered. *Kevin Clark*
2517
2518 * Fix NoMethodError when parsing params like &&. *Adam Greenfield*
2519
2520 * Fix flip flopped logic in docs for url_for's :only_path option. Closes #4998. *esad@esse.at*
2521
2522 * form.text_area handles the :size option just like the original text_area (:size => '60x10' becomes cols="60" rows="10"). *Jeremy Kemper*
2523
2524 * Excise ingrown code from FormOptionsHelper#options_for_select. #5008 *anonymous*
2525
2526 * Small fix in routing to allow dynamic routes (broken after [4242]) *Rick Olson*
2527
2528 map.connect '*path', :controller => 'files', :action => 'show'
2529
2530 * Replace alias method chaining with Module#alias_method_chain. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
2531
2532 * Replace Ruby's deprecated append_features in favor of included. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
2533
2534 * Use #flush between switching from #write to #syswrite. Closes #4907. *Blair Zajac <blair@orcaware.com>*
2535
2536 * Documentation fix: integration test scripts don't require integration_test. Closes #4914. *Frederick Ros <sl33p3r@free.fr>*
2537
2538 * ActionController::Base Summary documentation rewrite. Closes #4900. *Kevin Clark*
2539
2540 * Fix text_helper.rb documentation rendering. Closes #4725. *Frederick Ros*
2541
2542 * Fixes bad rendering of JavaScriptMacrosHelper rdoc (closes #4910) *Frederick Ros*
2543
2544 * Allow error_messages_for to report errors for multiple objects, as well as support for customizing the name of the object in the error summary header. Closes #4186. *andrew@redlinesoftware.com, Marcel Molina Jr.*
2545
2546 error_messages_for :account, :user, :subscription, :object_name => :account
2547
2548 * Enhance documentation for setting headers in integration tests. Skip auto HTTP prepending when its already there. Closes #4079. *Rick Olson*
2549
2550 * Documentation for AbstractRequest. Closes #4895. *Kevin Clark*
2551
2552 * Refactor various InstanceTag instance method to class methods. Closes #4800. *Stefan Kaes*
2553
2554 * Remove all remaining references to @params in the documentation. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
2555
2556 * Add documentation for redirect_to :back's RedirectBackError exception. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
2557
2558 * Update layout and content_for documentation to use yield rather than magic @content_for instance variables. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
2559
2560 * Fix assert_redirected_to tests according to real-world usage. Also, don't fail if you add an extra :controller option: *Rick Olson*
2561
2562 redirect_to :action => 'new'
2563 assert_redirected_to :controller => 'monkeys', :action => 'new'
2564
2565 * Cache CgiRequest#request_parameters so that multiple calls don't re-parse multipart data. *Rick Olson*
2566
2567 * Diff compared routing options. Allow #assert_recognizes to take a second arg as a hash to specify optional request method *Rick Olson*
2568
2569 assert_recognizes({:controller => 'users', :action => 'index'}, 'users')
2570 assert_recognizes({:controller => 'users', :action => 'create'}, {:path => 'users', :method => :post})
2571
2572 * Diff compared options with #assert_redirected_to *Rick Olson*
2573
2574 * Add support in routes for semicolon delimited "subpaths", like /books/:id;:action *Jamis Buck*
2575
2576 * Change link_to_function and button_to_function to (optionally) take an update_page block instead of a JavaScript string. Closes #4804. *zraii@comcast.net, Sam Stephenson*
2577
2578 * Fixed that remote_form_for can leave out the object parameter and default to the instance variable of the object_name, just like form_for *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2579
2580 * Modify routing so that you can say :require => { :method => :post } for a route, and the route will never be selected unless the request method is POST. Only works for route recognition, not for route generation. *Jamis Buck*
2581
2582 * Added :add_headers option to verify which merges a hash of name/value pairs into the response's headers hash if the prerequisites cannot be satisfied. *Sam Stephenson*
2583 ex. verify :only => :speak, :method => :post,
2584 :render => { :status => 405, :text => "Must be post" },
2585 :add_headers => { "Allow" => "POST" }
2586
2587 * Added ActionController.filter_parameter_logging that makes it easy to remove passwords, credit card numbers, and other sensitive information from being logged when a request is handled #1897 *jeremye@bsa.ca.gov*
2588
2589

2597
2598
2599 ## 1.13.2 (February 5th, 2007) ##
2600

2659 * Make sure html_document is reset between integration test requests. *ctm*
2660
2661 * 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*
2662
2663 * 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*
2664
2665 * Ensure render :json => ... skips the layout. #6808 *Josh Peek*
2666
2667 * Silence log_error deprecation warnings from inspecting deprecated instance variables. *Nate Wiger*

2670
2671 * Correctly report which filter halted the chain. #6699 *Martin Emde*
2672
2673 * 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*
2674 # application/json response with body 'Element.show({:name: "David"})'
2675 respond_to do |format|
2676 format.json { render :json => { :name => "David" }.to_json, :callback => 'Element.show' }
2677 end
2678
2679 * Makes :discard_year work without breaking multi-attribute parsing in AR. #1260, #3800 *sean@ardismg.com, jmartin@desertflood.com, stephen@touset.org, Bob Silva*
2680
2681 * Adds html id attribute to date helper elements. #1050, #1382 *mortonda@dgrmm.net, David North, Bob Silva*
2682
2683 * Add :index and @auto_index capability to model driven date/time selects. #847, #2655 *moriq, Doug Fales, Bob Silva*
2684
2685 * Add :order to datetime_select, select_datetime, and select_date. #1427 *Timothee Peignier, Patrick Lenz, Bob Silva*
2686
2687 * Added time_select to work with time values in models. Update scaffolding. #2489, #2833 *Justin Palmer, Andre Caum, Bob Silva*

2690
2691 * All date/datetime selects can now accept an array of month names with :use_month_names. Allows for localization. #363 *tomasj, Bob Silva*
2692
2693 * Adds :time_separator to select_time and :date_separator to select_datetime. Preserves BC. #3811 *Bob Silva*
2694
2695 * @response.redirect_url works with 201 Created responses: just return headers['Location'] rather than checking the response status. *Jeremy Kemper*
2696
2697 * Fixed that HEAD should return the proper Content-Length header (that is, actually use @body.size, not just 0) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2698
2699 * 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*
2700
2701
2702 ## 1.13.0 RC1 (r5619, November 22nd, 2006) ##

2707
2708 * Update to Prototype and script.aculo.us [5579]. *Sam Stephenson, Thomas Fuchs*
2709
2710 * simple_format helper doesn't choke on nil. #6644 *jerry426*
2711
2712 * 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*
2713
2714 * Deprecate standalone components. *Jeremy Kemper*
2715
2716 * Always clear model associations from session. #4795 *sd@notso.net, andylien@gmail.com*
2717
2718 * Remove JavaScriptLiteral in favor of ActiveSupport::JSON::Variable. *Sam Stephenson*
2719

2725 assert_response :ok
2726 assert_response :not_found
2727 assert_response :forbidden
2728
2729 * Cache parsed query parameters. #6559 *Stefan Kaes*
2730
2731 * Deprecate JavaScriptHelper#update_element_function, which is superseeded by RJS *Thomas Fuchs*
2732
2733 * Fix invalid test fixture exposed by stricter Ruby 1.8.5 multipart parsing. #6524 *Bob Silva*
2734
2735 * Set ActionView::Base.default_form_builder once rather than passing the :builder option to every form or overriding the form helper methods. *Jeremy Kemper*
2736
2737 * Deprecate expire_matched_fragments. Use expire_fragment instead. #6535 *Bob Silva*
2738
2739 * Deprecate start_form_tag and end_form_tag. Use form_tag / '</form>' from now on. *Rick Olson*
2740
2741 * Added block-usage to PrototypeHelper#form_remote_tag, document block-usage of FormTagHelper#form_tag *Rick Olson*
2742
2743 * Add a 0 margin/padding div around the hidden _method input tag that form_tag outputs. *Rick Olson*
2744
2745 * Added block-usage to TagHelper#content_tag [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
2746
2747 <% content_tag :div, :class => "strong" %>
2748 Hello world!
2749 <% end %>
2750
2751 Will output:
2752 <div class="strong">Hello world!</div>
2753
2754 * Deprecated UrlHelper#link_to_image and UrlHelper#link_to :post => true #6409 *Bob Silva*
2755
2756 * 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*
2757
2758 * Fixed that setting RAILS_ASSET_ID to "" should not add a trailing slash after assets #6454 *Bob Silva/chrismear*
2759
2760 * Force *_url named routes to show the host in ActionView *Rick Olson*
2761
2762 <%= url_for ... %> # no host
2763 <%= foo_path %> # no host
2764 <%= foo_url %> # host!
2765
2766 * Add support for converting blocks into function arguments to JavaScriptGenerator#call and JavaScriptProxy#call. *Sam Stephenson*
2767
2768 * Add JavaScriptGenerator#literal for wrapping a string in an object whose #to_json is the string itself. *Sam Stephenson*
2769
2770 * Add <%= escape_once html %> to escape html while leaving any currently escaped entities alone. Fix button_to double-escaping issue. *Rick Olson*
2771
2772 * Fix double-escaped entities, such as &amp;amp;, &amp;#123;, etc. *Rick Olson*
2773
2774 * Fix routing to correctly determine when generation fails. Closes #6300. [psross].

2776 * Fix broken assert_generates when extra keys are being checked. *Jamis Buck*
2777
2778 * Replace KCODE checks with String#chars for truncate. Closes #6385 *Manfred Stienstra*
2779
2780 * 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.*
2781
2782 * Use String#chars in TextHelper::excerpt. Closes #6386 *Manfred Stienstra*
2783
2784 * Fix relative URL root matching problems. *Mark Imbriaco*
2785
2786 * Fix filter skipping in controller subclasses. #5949, #6297, #6299 *Martin Emde*
2787
2788 * 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*
2789
2790 * Rename test assertion to prevent shadowing. Closes #6306. *psross*
2791
2792 * Fixed that NumberHelper#number_to_delimiter should respect precision of higher than two digits #6231 *Philip Hallstrom*
2793
2794 * Fixed that FormHelper#radio_button didn't respect an :id being passed in #6266 *evansj*
2795
2796 * Added an html_options hash parameter to javascript_tag() and update_page_tag() helpers #6311 [tzaharia]. Example:
2797
2798 update_page_tag :defer => 'true' { |page| ... }
2799
2800 Gives:
2801
2802 <script defer="true" type="text/javascript">...</script>
2803
2804 Which is needed for dealing with the IE6 DOM when it's not yet fully loaded.
2805
2806 * Fixed that rescue template path shouldn't be hardcoded, then it's easier to hook in your own #6295 *Mike Naberezny*
2807
2808 * Fixed escaping of backslashes in JavaScriptHelper#escape_javascript #6302 *sven@c3d2.de*
2809
2810 * Fixed that some 500 rescues would cause 500's themselves because the response had not yet been generated #6329 *cmselmer*
2811
2812 * respond_to :html doesn't assume .rhtml. #6281 *Hampton Catlin*
2813
2814 * Fixed some deprecation warnings in ActionPack *Rick Olson*
2815
2816 * assert_select_rjs decodes escaped unicode chars since the Javascript generators encode them. #6240 *japgolly*
2817
2818 * Deprecation: @cookies, @headers, @request, @response will be removed after 1.2. Use the corresponding method instead. *Jeremy Kemper*
2819
2820 * 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:
2821
2822 head :status => 404 # expands to "404 Not Found"
2823 head :status => :not_found # expands to "404 Not Found"
2824 head :status => :created # expands to "201 Created"
2825
2826 * Add head(options = {}) for responses that have no body. [Jamis Buck]. Examples:
2827
2828 head :status => 404 # return an empty response with a 404 status
2829 head :location => person_path(@person), :status => 201
2830
2831 * Fix bug that kept any before_filter except the first one from being able to halt the before_filter chain. *Rick Olson*
2832
2833 * strip_links is case-insensitive. #6285 *tagoh, Bob Silva*
2834
2835 * Clear the cache of possible controllers whenever Routes are reloaded. *Nicholas Seckar*
2836
2837 * Filters overhaul including meantime filter support using around filters + blocks. #5949 *Martin Emde, Roman Le Negrate, Stefan Kaes, Jeremy Kemper*
2838
2839 * Update CGI process to allow sessions to contain namespaced models. Closes #4638. *dfelstead@site5.com*
2840
2841 * Fix routing to respect user provided requirements and defaults when assigning default routing options (such as :action => 'index'). Closes #5950. *Nicholas Seckar*
2842
2843 * Rescue Errno::ECONNRESET to handle an unexpectedly closed socket connection. Improves SCGI reliability. #3368, #6226 *sdsykes, fhanshaw@vesaria.com*
2844
2845 * Added that respond_to blocks will automatically set the content type to be the same as is requested [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
2846
2847 respond_to do |format|
2848 format.html { render :text => "I'm being sent as text/html" }
2849 format.rss { render :text => "I'm being sent as application/rss+xml" }
2850 format.atom { render :text => "I'm being sent as application/xml", :content_type => Mime::XML }
2851 end
2852
2853 * Added utf-8 as the default charset for all renders. You can change this default using ActionController::Base.default_charset=(encoding) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2854
2855 * Added proper getters and setters for content type and charset [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example of what we used to do:
2856
2857 response.headers["Content-Type"] = "application/atom+xml; charset=utf-8"
2858
2859 ...now:
2860
2861 response.content_type = Mime::ATOM
2862 response.charset = "utf-8"
2863
2864 * Declare file extensions exempt from layouts. #6219 *brandon*
2865 Example: ActionController::Base.exempt_from_layout 'rpdf'
2866
2867 * Add chained replace/update support for assert_select_rjs *Rick Olson*
2868
2869 Given RJS like...
2870
2871 page['test1'].replace "<div id=\"1\">foo</div>"
2872 page['test2'].replace_html "<div id=\"2\">foo</div>"
2873
2874 Test it with...
2875
2876 assert_select_rjs :chained_replace
2877 assert_select_rjs :chained_replace, "test1"
2878
2879 assert_select_rjs :chained_replace_html
2880 assert_select_rjs :chained_replace_html, "test2"
2881
2882 * Load helpers in alphabetical order for consistency. Resolve cyclic javascript_helper dependency. #6132, #6178 *choonkeat@gmail.com*
2883
2884 * Skip params with empty names, such as the &=Save query string from <input type="submit"/>. #2569 *Manfred Stienstra, raphinou@yahoo.com*
2885
2886 * Fix assert_tag so that :content => "foo" does not match substrings, but only exact strings. Use :content => /foo/ to match substrings. #2799 *Eric Hodel*
2887
2888 * Update JavaScriptGenerator#show/hide/toggle/remove to new Prototype syntax for multiple ids, #6068 *petermichaux@gmail.com*
2889
2890 * Update UrlWriter to support :only_path. *Nicholas Seckar, Dave Thomas*
2891
2892 * 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:
2893
2894 link_to("Hider", nil, :class => "hider_link") { |p| p[:something].hide }
2895
2896 ...can be written like this:
2897
2898 link_to("Hider", :class => "hider_link") { |p| p[:something].hide }
2899
2900 * Added access to nested attributes in RJS #4548 [richcollins@gmail.com]. Examples:
2901
2902 page['foo']['style'] # => $('foo').style;
2903 page['foo']['style']['color'] # => $('blank_slate').style.color;
2904 page['foo']['style']['color'] = 'red' # => $('blank_slate').style.color = 'red';
2905 page['foo']['style'].color = 'red' # => $('blank_slate').style.color = 'red';
2906
2907 * Fixed that AssetTagHelper#image_tag and others using compute_public_path should not modify the incoming source argument (closes #5102) *eule@space.ch*
2908
2909 * Deprecated the auto-appending of .png to AssetTagHelper#image_tag calls that doesn't have an extension *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2910
2911 * Fixed FormOptionsHelper#select to respect :selected value #5813
2912
2913 * Fixed TextHelper#simple_format to deal with multiple single returns within a single paragraph #5835 *moriq@moriq.com*
2914
2915 * Fixed TextHelper#pluralize to handle 1 as a string #5909 *rails@bencurtis.com*
2916
2917 * Improved resolution of DateHelper#distance_of_time_in_words for better precision #5994 *Bob Silva*
2918
2919 * Changed that uncaught exceptions raised any where in the application will cause RAILS_ROOT/public/500.html to be read and shown instead of just the static "Application error (Rails)" *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2920
2921 * Added deprecation language for pagination which will become a plugin by Rails 2.0 *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2922
2923 * Added deprecation language for in_place_editor and auto_complete_field that both pieces will become plugins by Rails 2.0 *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2924
2925 * Deprecated all of ActionController::Dependencies. All dependency loading is now handled from Active Support *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2926
2927 * Added assert_select* for CSS selector-based testing (deprecates assert_tag) #5936 *assaf.arkin@gmail.com*
2928
2929 * radio_button_tag generates unique id attributes. #3353 *Bob Silva, somekool@gmail.com*
2930
2931 * strip_tags passes through blank args such as nil or "". #2229, #6702 *duncan@whomwah.com, dharana*
2932
2933 * Cleanup assert_tag :children counting. #2181 *jamie@bravenet.com*
2934
2935 * button_to accepts :method so you can PUT and DELETE with it. #6005 *Dan Webb*
2936
2937 * Update sanitize text helper to strip plaintext tags, and <img src="javascript:bang">. *Rick Olson*
2938
2939 * Add routing tests to assert that RoutingError is raised when conditions aren't met. Closes #6016 *Nathan Witmer*
2940
2941 * Make auto_link parse a greater subset of valid url formats. *Jamis Buck*
2942
2943 * Integration tests: headers beginning with X aren't excluded from the HTTP_ prefix, so X-Requested-With becomes HTTP_X_REQUESTED_WITH as expected. *Mike Clark*
2944
2945 * Switch to using FormEncodedPairParser for parsing request parameters. *Nicholas Seckar, David Heinemeier Hansson*
2946
2947 * respond_to .html now always renders #{action_name}.rhtml so that registered custom template handlers do not override it in priority. Custom mime types require a block and throw proper error now. *Tobias Lütke*
2948
2949 * Deprecation: test deprecated instance vars in partials. *Jeremy Kemper*
2950
2951 * Add UrlWriter to allow writing urls from Mailers and scripts. *Nicholas Seckar*
2952
2953 * Relax Routing's anchor pattern warning; it was preventing use of [^/] inside restrictions. *Nicholas Seckar*
2954
2955 * Add controller_paths variable to Routing. *Nicholas Seckar*
2956
2957 * Fix assert_redirected_to issue with named routes for module controllers. *Rick Olson*
2958
2959 * Tweak RoutingError message to show option diffs, not just missing named route significant keys. *Rick Olson*
2960
2961 * Invoke method_missing directly on hidden actions. Closes #3030. *Nicholas Seckar*
2962
2963 * Add RoutingError exception when RouteSet fails to generate a path from a Named Route. *Rick Olson*
2964
2965 * Replace Reloadable with Reloadable::Deprecated. *Nicholas Seckar*
2966
2967 * Deprecation: check whether instance variables have been monkeyed with before assigning them to deprecation proxies. Raises a RuntimeError if so. *Jeremy Kemper*
2968
2969 * Add support for the param_name parameter to the auto_complete_field helper. #5026 *david.a.williams@gmail.com*
2970
2971 * Deprecation! @params, @session, @flash will be removed after 1.2. Use the corresponding instance methods instead. You'll get printed warnings during tests and logged warnings in dev mode when you access either instance variable directly. *Jeremy Kemper*
2972
2973 * Make Routing noisy when an anchor regexp is assigned to a segment. #5674 *François Beausoleil*
2974
2975 * Added months and years to the resolution of DateHelper#distance_of_time_in_words, such that "60 days ago" becomes "2 months ago" #5611 *pjhyett@gmail.com*
2976
2977 * Make controller_path available as an instance method. #5724 *jmckible@gmail.com*
2978
2979 * Update query parser to support adjacent hashes. *Nicholas Seckar*
2980
2981 * 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.*
2982
2983 * Restrict Request Method hacking with ?_method to POST requests. *Rick Olson*
2984
2985 * Fixed the new_#{resource}_url route and added named route tests for Simply Restful. *Rick Olson*
2986
2987 * Added map.resources from the Simply Restful plugin [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples (the API has changed to use plurals!):
2988
2989 map.resources :messages
2990 map.resources :messages, :comments
2991 map.resources :messages, :new => { :preview => :post }
2992
2993 * Fixed that integration simulation of XHRs should set Accept header as well *Edward Frederick*
2994
2995 * TestRequest#reset_session should restore a TestSession, not a hash *Michael Koziarski*
2996
2997 * Don't search a load-path of '.' for controller files *Jamis Buck*
2998
2999 * Update integration.rb to require test_process explicitly instead of via Dependencies. *Nicholas Seckar*
3000
3001 * Fixed that you can still access the flash after the flash has been reset in reset_session. Closes #5584 *lmarlow*
3002
3003 * Allow form_for and fields_for to work with indexed form inputs. *Jeremy Kemper, Matt Lyon*
3004
3005 <% form_for 'post[]', @post do |f| -%>
3006 <% end -%>
3007
3008 * Remove leak in development mode by replacing define_method with module_eval. *Nicholas Seckar*
3009
3010 * Provide support for decimal columns to form helpers. Closes #5672. *Dave Thomas*
3011
3012 * Pass :id => nil or :class => nil to error_messages_for to supress that html attribute. #3586 *olivier_ansaldi@yahoo.com*
3013
3014 * Reset @html_document between requests so assert_tag works. #4810 *Jarkko Laine, easleydp@gmail.com*
3015
3016 * Integration tests behave well with render_component. #4632 *edward.frederick@revolution.com, dev.rubyonrails@maxdunn.com*
3017
3018 * Added exception handling of missing layouts #5373 *chris@ozmm.org*
3019
3020 * Fixed that real files and symlinks should be treated the same when compiling templates #5438 *zachary@panandscan.com*
3021
3022 * Fixed that the flash should be reset when reset_session is called #5584 *Shugo Maeda*
3023
3024 * Added special case for "1 Byte" in NumberHelper#number_to_human_size #5593 *murpyh@rubychan.de*
3025
3026 * Fixed proper form-encoded parameter parsing for requests with "Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded; charset=utf-8" (note the presence of a charset directive) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
3027
3028 * Add route_name_path method to generate only the path for a named routes. For example, map.person will add person_path. *Nicholas Seckar*
3029
3030 * Avoid naming collision among compiled view methods. *Jeremy Kemper*
3031
3032 * Fix CGI extensions when they expect string but get nil in Windows. Closes #5276 *Mislav Marohnić*
3033
3034 * Determine the correct template_root for deeply nested components. #2841 *s.brink@web.de*
3035
3036 * Fix that routes with *path segments in the recall can generate URLs. *Rick Olson*
3037
3038 * Fix strip_links so that it doesn't hang on multiline <acronym> tags *Jamis Buck*
3039
3040 * Remove problematic control chars in rescue template. #5316 *Stefan Kaes*
3041
3042 * Make sure passed routing options are not mutated by routing code. #5314 *Blair Zajac*
3043
3044 * Make sure changing the controller from foo/bar to bing/bang does not change relative to foo. *Jamis Buck*
3045
3046 * Escape the path before routing recognition. #3671
3047
3048 * Make sure :id and friends are unescaped properly. #5275 *me@julik.nl*
3049
3050 * Rewind readable CGI params so others may reread them (such as CGI::Session when passing the session id in a multipart form). #210 *mklame@atxeu.com, matthew@walker.wattle.id.au*
3051
3052 * Added Mime::TEXT (text/plain) and Mime::ICS (text/calendar) as new default types *David Heinemeier Hansson*
3053
3054 * Added Mime::Type.register(string, symbol, synonyms = []) for adding new custom mime types [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example: Mime::Type.register("image/gif", :gif)
3055
3056 * Added support for Mime objects in render :content_type option [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example: render :text => some_atom, :content_type => Mime::ATOM
3057
3058 * Add :status option to send_data and send_file. Defaults to '200 OK'. #5243 *Manfred Stienstra <m.stienstra@fngtps.com>*
3059
3060 * Routing rewrite. Simpler, faster, easier to understand. The published API for config/routes.rb is unchanged, but nearly everything else is different, so expect breakage in plugins and libs that try to fiddle with routes. *Nicholas Seckar, Jamis Buck*
3061
3062 map.connect '/foo/:id', :controller => '...', :action => '...'
3063 map.connect '/foo/:id.:format', :controller => '...', :action => '...'
3064 map.connect '/foo/:id', ..., :conditions => { :method => :get }
3065
3066 * Cope with missing content type and length headers. Parse parameters from multipart and urlencoded request bodies only. *Jeremy Kemper*
3067
3068 * Accept multipart PUT parameters. #5235 *guy.naor@famundo.com*
3069
3070 * Added interrogation of params[:format] to determine Accept type. If :format is specified and matches a declared extension, like "rss" or "xml", that mime type will be put in front of the accept handler. This means you can link to the same action from different extensions and use that fact to determine output [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
3071
3072 class WeblogController < ActionController::Base
3073 def index
3074 @posts = Post.find :all
3075
3076 respond_to do |format|
3077 format.html
3078 format.xml { render :xml => @posts.to_xml }
3079 format.rss { render :action => "feed.rxml" }
3080 end
3081 end
3082 end
3083
3084 \# returns HTML when requested by a browser, since the browser
3085 \# has the HTML mimetype at the top of its priority list
3086 Accept: text/html
3087 GET /weblog
3088
3089 \# returns the XML
3090 Accept: application/xml
3091 GET /weblog
3092
3093 \# returns the HTML
3094 Accept: application/xml
3095 GET /weblog.html
3096
3097 \# returns the XML
3098 Accept: text/html
3099 GET /weblog.xml
3100
3101 All this relies on the fact that you have a route that includes .:format.
3102
3103 * Expanded :method option in FormTagHelper#form_tag, FormHelper#form_for, PrototypeHelper#remote_form_for, PrototypeHelper#remote_form_tag, and PrototypeHelper#link_to_remote to allow for verbs other than GET and POST by automatically creating a hidden form field named _method, which will simulate the other verbs over post *David Heinemeier Hansson*
3104
3105 * Added :method option to UrlHelper#link_to, which allows for using other verbs than GET for the link. This replaces the :post option, which is now deprecated. Example: link_to "Destroy", person_url(:id => person), :method => :delete *David Heinemeier Hansson*
3106
3107 * follow_redirect doesn't complain about being redirected to the same controller. #5153 *dymo@mk.ukrtelecom.ua*
3108
3109 * Add layout attribute to response object with the name of the layout that was rendered, or nil if none rendered. *Kevin Clark*
3110
3111 * Fix NoMethodError when parsing params like &&. *Adam Greenfield*
3112
3113 * form.text_area handles the :size option just like the original text_area (:size => '60x10' becomes cols="60" rows="10"). *Jeremy Kemper*
3114
3115 * Excise ingrown code from FormOptionsHelper#options_for_select. #5008 *anonymous*
3116
3117 * Small fix in routing to allow dynamic routes (broken after [4242]) *Rick Olson*
3118
3119 map.connect '*path', :controller => 'files', :action => 'show'
3120
3121 * Use #flush between switching from #write to #syswrite. Closes #4907. *Blair Zajac <blair@orcaware.com>*
3122
3123 * Allow error_messages_for to report errors for multiple objects, as well as support for customizing the name of the object in the error summary header. Closes #4186. *andrew@redlinesoftware.com, Marcel Molina Jr.*
3124
3125 error_messages_for :account, :user, :subscription, :object_name => :account
3126
3127 * Fix assert_redirected_to tests according to real-world usage. Also, don't fail if you add an extra :controller option: *Rick Olson*
3128
3129 redirect_to :action => 'new'
3130 assert_redirected_to :controller => 'monkeys', :action => 'new'
3131
3132 * Diff compared routing options. Allow #assert_recognizes to take a second arg as a hash to specify optional request method *Rick Olson*
3133
3134 assert_recognizes({:controller => 'users', :action => 'index'}, 'users')
3135 assert_recognizes({:controller => 'users', :action => 'create'}, {:path => 'users', :method => :post})
3136
3137 * Diff compared options with #assert_redirected_to *Rick Olson*
3138
3139 * Add support in routes for semicolon delimited "subpaths", like /books/:id;:action *Jamis Buck*
3140
3141 * Change link_to_function and button_to_function to (optionally) take an update_page block instead of a JavaScript string. Closes #4804. *zraii@comcast.net, Sam Stephenson*
3142
3143 * Modify routing so that you can say :require => { :method => :post } for a route, and the route will never be selected unless the request method is POST. Only works for route recognition, not for route generation. *Jamis Buck*
3144
3145 * Added :add_headers option to verify which merges a hash of name/value pairs into the response's headers hash if the prerequisites cannot be satisfied. *Sam Stephenson*
3146 ex. verify :only => :speak, :method => :post,
3147 :render => { :status => 405, :text => "Must be post" },
3148 :add_headers => { "Allow" => "POST" }
3149
3150
3151 ## 1.12.5 (August 10th, 2006) ##
3152
3153 * Updated security fix
3154
3155
3156 ## 1.12.4 (August 8th, 2006) ##
3157
3158 * Cache CgiRequest#request_parameters so that multiple calls don't re-parse multipart data. *Rick Olson*
3159
3160 * Fixed that remote_form_for can leave out the object parameter and default to the instance variable of the object_name, just like form_for *David Heinemeier Hansson*
3161
3162 * Added ActionController.filter_parameter_logging that makes it easy to remove passwords, credit card numbers, and other sensitive information from being logged when
