3a1d519 @lest deprecation warning, changelog entry
lest authored
3 * Refactor ActionDispatch::ShowExceptions. Controller is responsible for choice to show exceptions. *Sergey Nartimov*
4
5 It's possible to override +show_detailed_exceptions?+ in controllers to specify which requests should provide debugging information on errors.

281272a @jonleighton Convert CHANGELOGs to Markdown format.
jonleighton authored
7 * Responders now return 204 No Content for API requests without a response body (as in the new scaffold) *José Valim*
8
9 * 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*
10
11 * Limit the number of options for select_year to 1000.
12
13 Pass the :max_years_allowed option to set your own limit.
14
15 *Libo Cannici*
16
17 * Passing formats or handlers to render :template and friends is deprecated. For example: *Nick Sutterer & José Valim*
18
19 render :template => "foo.html.erb"
20
21 Instead, you can provide :handlers and :formats directly as option:
22 render :template => "foo", :formats => [:html, :js], :handlers => :erb
23
24 * Changed log level of warning for missing CSRF token from :debug to :warn. *Mike Dillon*
25
26 * 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*
27
28 So instead of having to do this:
29
30 @items.each do |item|
31 content_tag_for(:li, item) do
32 Title: <%= item.title %>
33 end
34 end
35
36 You can now do this:
37
38 content_tag_for(:li, @items) do |item|
39 Title: <%= item.title %>
40 end
41
42 * send_file now guess the mime type *Esad Hajdarevic*
43
44 * Mime type entries for PDF, ZIP and other formats were added *Esad Hajdarevic*
45
46 * Generate hidden input before select with :multiple option set to true.
47 This is useful when you rely on the fact that when no options is set,
48 the state of select will be sent to rails application. Without hidden field
49 nothing is sent according to HTML spec *Bogdan Gusiev*
50
51 * Refactor ActionController::TestCase cookies *Andrew White*
52
53 Assigning cookies for test cases should now use cookies[], e.g:
54
55 cookies[:email] = 'user@example.com'
56 get :index
57 assert_equal 'user@example.com', cookies[:email]
58
59 To clear the cookies, use clear, e.g:
60
61 cookies.clear
62 get :index
63 assert_nil cookies[:email]
64
65 We now no longer write out HTTP_COOKIE and the cookie jar is
66 persistent between requests so if you need to manipulate the environment
67 for your test you need to do it before the cookie jar is created.

e8d57f3 @lest _html translation should escape interpolated arguments
lest authored
78 * Fix XSS security vulnerability in the `translate` helper method. When using interpolation
79 in combination with HTML-safe translations, the interpolated input would not get HTML
80 escaped. *GH 3664*
81
82 Before:
83
84 translate('foo_html', :something => '<script>') # => "...<script>..."
85
86 After:
87

fc98811 @jonleighton Implement a workaround for a bug in ruby-1.9.3p0.
jonleighton authored
103 * Implement a workaround for a bug in ruby-1.9.3p0 where an error would be raised
104 while attempting to convert a template from one encoding to another.
105
106 Please see http://redmine.ruby-lang.org/issues/5564 for details of the bug.
107
108 The workaround is to load all conversions into memory ahead of time, and will
109 only happen if the ruby version is *exactly* 1.9.3p0. The hope is obviously that
110 the underlying problem will be resolved in the next patchlevel release of
111 1.9.3.

117 ## Rails 3.1.1 (unreleased) ##
118
119 * javascript_path and stylesheet_path now refer to /assets if asset pipelining
120 is on. [Santiago Pastorino]
121 * button_to support form option. Now you're able to pass for example
122 'data-type' => 'json'. [ihower]
123 * image_path and image_tag should use /assets if asset pipelining is turned
124 on. Closes #3126 [Santiago Pastorino and christos]
125 * Avoid use of existing precompiled assets during rake assets:precompile run.
126 Closes #3119 [Guillermo Iguaran]
127 * Copy assets to nondigested filenames too *Santiago Pastorino*
128
129 * Give precedence to `config.digest = false` over the existence of
130 manifest.yml asset digests [christos]
131 * escape options for the stylesheet_link_tag method *Alexey Vakhov*
132
133 * Re-launch assets:precompile task using (Rake.)ruby instead of Kernel.exec so
134 it works on Windows [cablegram]
135 * env var passed to process shouldn't be modified in process method. [Santiago
136 Pastorino]
137 * `rake assets:precompile` loads the application but does not initialize
138 it.
139 To the app developer, this means configuration add in
140 config/initializers/* will not be executed.
141 Plugins developers need to special case their initializers that are
142 meant to be run in the assets group by adding :group => :assets. *José Valim*
143
144 * Sprockets uses config.assets.prefix for asset_path *asee*
145
146 * FileStore key_file_path properly limit filenames to 255 characters. *phuibonhoa*
147
148 * Fix Hash#to_query edge case with html_safe strings. *brainopia*
149
150 * Allow asset tag helper methods to accept :digest => false option in order to completely avoid the digest generation.
151 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]
152 * Don't mount Sprockets server at config.assets.prefix if config.assets.compile is false. *Mark J. Titorenko*
153
154 * Set relative url root in assets when controller isn't available for Sprockets (eg. Sass files using asset_path). Fixes #2435 *Guillermo Iguaran*
155
156 * Fix basic auth credential generation to not make newlines. GH #2882
157
158 * Fixed the behavior of asset pipeline when config.assets.digest and config.assets.compile are false and requested asset isn't precompiled.
159 Before the requested asset were compiled anyway ignoring that the config.assets.compile flag is false. *Guillermo Iguaran*
160
161 * CookieJar is now Enumerable. Fixes #2795
162
163 * Fixed AssetNotPrecompiled error raised when rake assets:precompile is compiling certain .erb files. See GH #2763 #2765 #2805 *Guillermo Iguaran*
164
165 * Manifest is correctly placed in assets path when default assets prefix is changed. Fixes #2776 *Guillermo Iguaran*
166
167 * Fixed stylesheet_link_tag and javascript_include_tag to respect additional options passed by the users when debug is on. *Guillermo Iguaran*
168
169
170 ## Rails 3.1.0 (August 30, 2011) ##
171
172 * Param values are `paramified` in controller tests. *David Chelimsky*
173
174 * 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*
175
176 * The submit form helper does not generate an id "object_name_id" anymore. *fbrusatti*
177
178 * Make sure respond_with with :js tries to render a template in all cases *José Valim*
179
180 * json_escape will now return a SafeBuffer string if it receives SafeBuffer string *tenderlove*
181
182 * Make sure escape_js returns SafeBuffer string if it receives SafeBuffer string *Prem Sichanugrist*
183
184 * Fix escape_js to work correctly with the new SafeBuffer restriction *Paul Gallagher*
185
186 * Brought back alternative convention for namespaced models in i18n *thoefer*
187
188 Now the key can be either "namespace.model" or "namespace/model" until further deprecation.
189
190 * It is prohibited to perform a in-place SafeBuffer mutation *tenderlove*
191
192 The old behavior of SafeBuffer allowed you to mutate string in place via
193 method like `sub!`. These methods can add unsafe strings to a safe buffer,
194 and the safe buffer will continue to be marked as safe.
195
196 An example problem would be something like this:
197
198 <%= link_to('hello world', @user).sub!(/hello/, params[:xss]) %>
199
200 In the above example, an untrusted string (`params[:xss]`) is added to the
201 safe buffer returned by `link_to`, and the untrusted content is successfully
202 sent to the client without being escaped. To prevent this from happening
203 `sub!` and other similar methods will now raise an exception when they are called on a safe buffer.
204
205 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:
206
207 <%= link_to('hello world', @user).sub(/hello/, params[:xss]) %>
208
209 The new versions will now ensure that *all* strings returned by these methods on safe buffers are marked unsafe.
210
211 You can read more about this change in http://groups.google.com/group/rubyonrails-security/browse_thread/thread/2e516e7acc96c4fb
212
213 * Warn if we cannot verify CSRF token authenticity *José Valim*
214
215 * Allow AM/PM format in datetime selectors *Aditya Sanghi*
216
217 * Only show dump of regular env methods on exception screen (not all the rack crap) *DHH*
218
219 * auto_link has been removed with no replacement. If you still use auto_link
220 please install the rails_autolink gem:
221 http://github.com/tenderlove/rails_autolink
222
223 *tenderlove*
224
225 * Added streaming support, you can enable it with: *José Valim*
226
227 class PostsController < ActionController::Base
228 stream :only => :index
229 end
230
231 Please read the docs at `ActionController::Streaming` for more information.
232
233 * Added `ActionDispatch::Request.ignore_accept_header` to ignore accept headers and only consider the format given as parameter *José Valim*
234
235 * Created `ActionView::Renderer` and specified an API for `ActionView::Context`, check those objects for more information *José Valim*
236
237 * 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*
238
239 This can be customized by setting `ActionController::Base.wrap_parameters` in `config/initializer/wrap_parameters.rb`
240
241 * RJS has been extracted out to a gem. *fxn*
242
243 * Implicit actions named not_implemented can be rendered. *Santiago Pastorino*
244
245 * Wildcard route will always match the optional format segment by default. *Prem Sichanugrist*
246
247 For example if you have this route:
248
249 match '*pages' => 'pages#show'
250
251 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:
252
253 match '*pages' => 'pages#show', :format => false
254
255 * Added Base.http_basic_authenticate_with to do simple http basic authentication with a single class method call *DHH*
256
257 class PostsController < ApplicationController
258 USER_NAME, PASSWORD = "dhh", "secret"
259
260 before_filter :authenticate, :except => [ :index ]
261
262 def index
263 render :text => "Everyone can see me!"
264 end
265
266 def edit
267 render :text => "I'm only accessible if you know the password"
268 end
269
270 private
271 def authenticate
272 authenticate_or_request_with_http_basic do |user_name, password|
273 user_name == USER_NAME && password == PASSWORD
274 end
275 end
276 end
277
278 ..can now be written as
279
280 class PostsController < ApplicationController
281 http_basic_authenticate_with :name => "dhh", :password => "secret", :except => :index
282
283 def index
284 render :text => "Everyone can see me!"
285 end
286
287 def edit
288 render :text => "I'm only accessible if you know the password"
289 end
290 end
291
292 * 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*
293
294 * Allow FormHelper#form_for to specify the :method as a direct option instead of through the :html hash *DHH*
295
296 form_for(@post, remote: true, method: :delete) instead of form_for(@post, remote: true, html: { method: :delete })
297
298 * 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*
299
300 * 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*
301
302 * URL parameters which return false for to_param now appear in the query string (previously they were removed) *Andrew White*
303
304 * URL parameters which return nil for to_param are now removed from the query string *Andrew White*
305
306 * ActionDispatch::MiddlewareStack now uses composition over inheritance. It is
307 no longer an array which means there may be methods missing that were not tested.
308 * Add an :authenticity_token option to form_tag for custom handling or to omit the token (pass :authenticity_token => false). *Jakub Kuźma, Igor Wiedler*
309
310 * HTML5 button_tag helper. *Rizwan Reza*
311
312 * Template lookup now searches further up in the inheritance chain. *Artemave*
313
314 * Brought back config.action_view.cache_template_loading, which allows to decide whether templates should be cached or not. *Piotr Sarnacki*
315
316 * url_for and named url helpers now accept :subdomain and :domain as options, *Josh Kalderimis*
317
318 * 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*
319
320 * 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*
321
322 * Added a convenience idiom to generate HTML5 data-* attributes in tag helpers from a :data hash of options:
323
324 tag("div", :data => {:name => 'Stephen', :city_state => %w(Chicago IL)})
325 # => <div data-name="Stephen" data-city-state="[&quot;Chicago&quot;,&quot;IL&quot;]" />
326
327 Keys are dasherized. Values are JSON-encoded, except for strings and symbols. *Stephen Celis*
328
329 * Deprecate old template handler API. The new API simply requires a template handler to respond to call. *José Valim*
330
331 * :rhtml and :rxml were finally removed as template handlers. *José Valim*
332
333 * Moved etag responsibility from ActionDispatch::Response to the middleware stack. *José Valim*
334
335 * 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*
336
337 * file_field automatically adds :multipart => true to the enclosing form. *Santiago Pastorino*
338
339 * Renames csrf_meta_tag -> csrf_meta_tags, and aliases csrf_meta_tag for backwards compatibility. *fxn*
340
341 * 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*
342
343
344 ## Rails 3.0.7 (April 18, 2011) ##
345
346 * No changes.
347
348
349 * Rails 3.0.6 (April 5, 2011)
350
351 * Fixed XSS vulnerability in `auto_link`. `auto_link` no longer marks input as
352 html safe. Please make sure that calls to auto_link() are wrapped in a
353 sanitize(), or a raw() depending on the type of input passed to auto_link().
354 For example:
355
356 <%= sanitize(auto_link(some_user_input)) %>
357
358 Thanks to Torben Schulz for reporting this. The fix can be found here:
359 61ee3449674c591747db95f9b3472c5c3bd9e84d
360
361 * 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*
362
363 * Fixes an issue with number_to_human when converting values which are less than 1 but greater than -1 *Josh Kalderimis*
364
365 * 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*
366
367 * URL parameters which return nil for to_param are now removed from the query string *Andrew White*
368
369 * Don't allow i18n to change the minor version, version now set to ~> 0.5.0 *Santiago Pastorino*
370
371 * Make TranslationHelper#translate use the :rescue_format option in I18n 0.5.0 *Sven Fuchs*
372
373 * Fix regression: javascript_include_tag shouldn't raise if you register an expansion key with nil or [] value *Santiago Pastorino*
374
375 * 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*
376
377
378 ## Rails 3.0.5 (February 26, 2011) ##
379
380 * No changes.
381
382
383 ## Rails 3.0.4 (February 8, 2011) ##
384
385 * No changes.
386
387
388 ## Rails 3.0.3 (November 16, 2010) ##
389
390 * When ActiveRecord::Base objects are sent to predicate methods, the id of the object should be sent to ARel, not the ActiveRecord::Base object.
391
392 * :constraints routing should only do sanity checks against regular expressions. String arguments are OK.
393
394
395 ## Rails 3.0.2 (November 15, 2010) ##
396
397 * The helper number_to_currency accepts a new :negative_format option to be able to configure how to render negative amounts. *Don Wilson*
398
399
400 ## Rails 3.0.1 (October 15, 2010) ##
401
402 * No Changes, just a version bump.
403
404
405 ## Rails 3.0.0 (August 29, 2010) ##
406
407 * 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*
408
409 * 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*
410
411 * 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*
412
413 * Support routing constraints in functional tests. *Andrew White*
414
415 * Add a header that tells Internet Explorer (all versions) to use the best available standards support. *Yehuda Katz*
416
417 * Allow stylesheet/javascript extensions to be changed through railties. *Josh Kalderimis*
418
419 * link_to, button_to, and tag/tag_options now rely on html_escape instead of escape_once. *fxn*
420
421 * url_for returns always unescaped strings, and the :escape option is gone. *fxn*
422
423 * Added accept-charset parameter and _snowman hidden field to force the contents
424 of Rails POSTed forms to be in UTF-8 *Yehuda Katz*
425
426 * Upgrade to Rack 1.2.1 *Jeremy Kemper*
427
428 * Allow :path to be given to match/get/post/put/delete instead of :path_names in the new router *Carlos Antônio da Silva*
429
430 * Added resources_path_names to the new router DSL *José Valim*
431
432 * Allow options to be given to the namespace method in the new router *Carlos Antônio da Silva*
433
434 * Deprecate :name_prefix in the new router DSL *José Valim*
435
436 * Add shallow routes back to the new router *Diego Carrion, Andrew White*
437
438 resources :posts do
439 shallow do
440 resources :comments
441 end
442 end
443
444 You can now use comment_path for /comments/1 instead of post_comment_path for /posts/1/comments/1.
445
446 * 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*
447
448 * Removed textilize, textilize_without_paragraph and markdown helpers. *Santiago Pastorino*
449
450 * Remove middleware laziness *José Valim*
451
452 * Make session stores rely on request.cookie_jar and change set_session semantics to return the cookie value instead of a boolean. *José Valim*
453
454 * OAuth 2: HTTP Token Authorization support to complement Basic and Digest Authorization. *Rick Olson*
455
456 * Fixed inconsistencies in form builder and view helpers #4432 *Neeraj Singh*
457
458 * 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*
459
460 * Renamed the field error CSS class from fieldWithErrors to field_with_errors for consistency. *Jeremy Kemper*
461
462 * Add support for shorthand routes like /projects/status(.:format) #4423 *Diego Carrion*
463
464 * 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*
465
466 * 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*
467
468 * Removed verify method in controllers. *JV*
469 It's now available as a plugin at http://github.com/rails/verification
470
471 * Removed input, form, error_messages_for and error_message_on from views. *JV*
472 It's now available as a plugin at http://github.com/rails/dynamic_form
473
474 * Routes can be scoped by controller module. *Jeremy Kemper*
475
476 # /session => Auth::SessionsController
477 scope :module => 'auth' do
478 resource :session
479 end
480
481 * Added #favicon_link_tag, it uses #image_path so in particular the favicon gets an asset ID *fxn*
482
483 * Fixed that default locale templates should be used if the current locale template is missing *DHH*
484
485 * Added all the new HTML5 form types as individual form tag methods (search, url, number, etc) #3646 *Stephen Celis*
486
487 * Changed the object used in routing constraints to be an instance of
488 ActionDispatch::Request rather than Rack::Request *YK*
489
490 * Changed ActionDispatch::Request#method to return a String, to be compatible
491 with Rack::Request. Added ActionDispatch::Request#method_symbol to
492 return a symbol form of the request method. *YK*
493
494 * Changed ActionDispatch::Request#method to return the original
495 method and #request_method to return the overridden method in the
496 case of methodoverride being used (this means that #method returns
497 "HEAD" and #request_method returns "GET" in HEAD requests). This
498 is for compatibility with Rack::Request *YK*
499
500 * #concat is now deprecated in favor of using <%= %> helpers *YK*
501
502 * Block helpers now return Strings, so you can use <%= form_for @foo do |f| %>.
503 <% form_for do |f| %> still works with deprecation notices *YK*
504
505 * Add a new #mount method on the router that does not anchor the PATH_INFO
506 at the end *YK & CL*
507
508 * Create a new LookupContext object that is responsible for performantly
509 finding a template for a given pattern *JV*
510
511 * Removed relative_url_for in favor of respecting SCRIPT_NAME *YK & CL*
512
513 * Changed file streaming to use Rack::Sendfile middleware *YK*
514
515 * ActionDispatch::Request#content_type returns a String to be compatible with
516 Rack::Request. Use #content_mime_type for the Mime::Type instance *YK*
517
518 * Updated Prototype to 1.6.1 and Scriptaculous to 1.8.3 *ML*
519
520 * Change the preferred way that URL helpers are included into a class*YK & CL*
521
522 # for all helpers including named routes
523 include Rails.application.router.url_helpers
524
525 # for just url_for
526 include Rails.application.router.url_for
527
528 * Fixed that PrototypeHelper#update_page should return html_safe *DHH*
529
530 * Fixed that much of DateHelper wouldn't return html_safe? strings *DHH*
531
532 * Fixed that fragment caching should return a cache hit as html_safe (or it would all just get escaped) *DHH*
533
534 * Added that ActionController::Base now does helper :all instead of relying on the default ApplicationController in Rails to do it *DHH*
535
536 * Added ActionDispatch::Request#authorization to access the http authentication header regardless of its proxy hiding *DHH*
537
538 * Added :alert, :notice, and :flash as options to ActionController::Base#redirect_to that'll automatically set the proper flash before the redirection [DHH]. Examples:
539
540 flash[:notice] = 'Post was created'
541 redirect_to(@post)
542
543 ...becomes:
544
545 redirect_to(@post, :notice => 'Post was created')
546
547 * 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*
548
549
550 * Introduce grouped_collection_select helper. #1249 *Dan Codeape, Erik Ostrom*
551
552 * Make sure javascript_include_tag/stylesheet_link_tag does not append ".js" or ".css" onto external urls. #1664 *Matthew Rudy Jacobs*
553
554 * Ruby 1.9: fix Content-Length for multibyte send_data streaming. #2661 *Sava Chankov*
555
556 * Ruby 1.9: ERB template encoding using a magic comment at the top of the file. *Jeremy Kemper*
557 <%# encoding: utf-8 %>
558
559 * Change integration test helpers to accept Rack environment instead of just HTTP Headers *Pratik Naik*
560
561 Before : get '/path', {}, 'Accept' => 'text/javascript'
562 After : get '/path', {}, 'HTTP_ACCEPT' => 'text/javascript'
563
564 * Instead of checking Rails.env.test? in Failsafe middleware, check env["rails.raise_exceptions"] *Bryan Helmkamp*
565
566 * Fixed that TestResponse.cookies was returning cookies unescaped #1867 *Doug McInnes*
567
568
569 ## 2.3.2 Final (March 15, 2009) ##
570
571 * Fixed that redirection would just log the options, not the final url (which lead to "Redirected to #<Post:0x23150b8>") *DHH*
572
573 * Don't check authenticity tokens for any AJAX requests *Ross Kaffenberger/Bryan Helmkamp*
574
575 * Added ability to pass in :public => true to fresh_when, stale?, and expires_in to make the request proxy cachable #2095 *Gregg Pollack*
576
577 * Fixed that passing a custom form builder would be forwarded to nested fields_for calls #2023 *Eloy Duran/Nate Wiger*
578
579 * Form option helpers now support disabled option tags and the use of lambdas for selecting/disabling option tags from collections #837 *Tekin*
580
581 * 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*
582
583 * Fix a syntax error in current_page?() that was prevent matches against URL's with multiple query parameters #1385, #1868 *chris finne/Andrew White*
584
585 * Added localized rescue template when I18n.locale is set (ex: public/404.da.html) #1835 *José Valim*
586
587 * Make the form_for and fields_for helpers support the new Active Record nested update options. #1202 *Eloy Duran*
588
589 <% form_for @person do |person_form| %>
590 ...
591 <% person_form.fields_for :projects do |project_fields| %>
592 <% if project_fields.object.active? %>
593 Name: <%= project_fields.text_field :name %>
594 <% end %>
595 <% end %>
596 <% end %>
597
598
599 * Added grouped_options_for_select helper method for wrapping option tags in optgroups. #977 *Jon Crawford*
600
601 * Implement HTTP Digest authentication. #1230 [Gregg Kellogg, Pratik Naik] Example :
602
603 class DummyDigestController < ActionController::Base
604 USERS = { "lifo" => 'world' }
605
606 before_filter :authenticate
607
608 def index
609 render :text => "Hello Secret"
610 end
611
612 private
613
614 def authenticate
615 authenticate_or_request_with_http_digest("Super Secret") do |username|
616 # Return the user's password
617 USERS[username]
618 end
619 end
620 end
621
622 * Improved i18n support for the number_to_human_size helper. Changes the storage_units translation data; update your translations accordingly. #1634 *Yaroslav Markin*
623 storage_units:
624 # %u is the storage unit, %n is the number (default: 2 MB)
625 format: "%n %u"
626 units:
627 byte:
628 one: "Byte"
629 other: "Bytes"
630 kb: "KB"
631 mb: "MB"
632 gb: "GB"
633 tb: "TB"
634
635 * Added :silence option to BenchmarkHelper#benchmark and turned log_level into a hash parameter and deprecated the old use *DHH*
636
637 * 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*
638
639 * Make ActionController#render(string) work as a shortcut for render :file/:template/:action => string. [#1435] [Pratik Naik] Examples:
640
641 \# Instead of render(:action => 'other_action')
642 render('other_action') # argument has no '/'
643 render(:other_action)
644
645 \# Instead of render(:template => 'controller/action')
646 render('controller/action') # argument must not begin with a '/', but contain a '/'
647
648 \# Instead of render(:file => '/Users/lifo/home.html.erb')
649 render('/Users/lifo/home.html.erb') # argument must begin with a '/'
650
651 * Add :prompt option to date/time select helpers. #561 *Sam Oliver*
652
653 * Fixed that send_file shouldn't set an etag #1578 *Hongli Lai*
654
655 * Allow users to opt out of the spoofing checks in Request#remote_ip. Useful for sites whose traffic regularly triggers false positives. *Darren Boyd*
656
657 * Deprecated formatted_polymorphic_url. *Jeremy Kemper*
658
659 * 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*
660
661 * 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*
662
663 * Dropped formatted_* routes in favor of just passing in :format as an option. This cuts resource routes generation in half #1359 *aaronbatalion*
664
665 * 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*
666
667 * Allow helpers directory to be overridden via ActionController::Base.helpers_dir #1424 *Sam Pohlenz*
668
669 * Remove deprecated ActionController::Base#assign_default_content_type_and_charset
670
671 * Changed the default of ActionView#render to assume partials instead of files when not given an options hash [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
672
673 # Instead of <%= render :partial => "account" %>
674 <%= render "account" %>
675
676 # Instead of <%= render :partial => "account", :locals => { :account => @buyer } %>
677 <%= render "account", :account => @buyer %>
678
679 # @account is an Account instance, so it uses the RecordIdentifier to replace
680 # <%= render :partial => "accounts/account", :locals => { :account => @account } %>
681 <%= render(@account) %>
682
683 # @posts is an array of Post instances, so it uses the RecordIdentifier to replace
684 # <%= render :partial => "posts/post", :collection => @posts %>
685 <%= render(@posts) %>
686
687 * Remove deprecated render_component. Please use the plugin from http://github.com/rails/render_component/tree/master *Pratik Naik*
688
689 * 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*
690
691
692 ## 2.2.2 (November 21st, 2008) ##
693
694 * I18n: translate number_to_human_size. Add storage_units: [Bytes, KB, MB, GB, TB] to your translations. #1448 *Yaroslav Markin*
695
696 * Restore backwards compatible functionality for setting relative_url_root. Include deprecation
697
698 * Switched the CSRF module to use the request content type to decide if the request is forgeable. #1145 *Jeff Cohen*
699
700 * 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*
701
702 map.resources :products, :only => :show do |product|
703 product.resources :images, :except => :destroy
704 end
705
706 * Added render :js for people who want to render inline JavaScript replies without using RJS *David Heinemeier Hansson*
707
708 * Fixed that polymorphic_url should compact given array #1317 *hiroshi*
709
710 * Fixed the sanitize helper to avoid double escaping already properly escaped entities #683 *antonmos/Ryan McGeary*
711
712 * Fixed that FormTagHelper generated illegal html if name contained square brackets #1238 *Vladimir Dobriakov*
713
714 * 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*
715
716 * Simplified the logging format for parameters (don't include controller, action, and format as duplicates) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
717
718 * Remove the logging of the Session ID when the session store is CookieStore *David Heinemeier Hansson*
719
720 * Fixed regex in redirect_to to fully support URI schemes #1247 *Seth Fitzsimmons*
721
722 * Fixed bug with asset timestamping when using relative_url_root #1265 *Joe Goldwasser*
723
724
725 ## 2.2.0 RC1 (October 24th, 2008) ##
726
727 * Fix incorrect closing CDATA delimiter and that HTML::Node.parse would blow up on unclosed CDATA sections *packagethief*
728
729 * Added stale? and fresh_when methods to provide a layer of abstraction above request.fresh? and friends [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
730
731 class ArticlesController < ApplicationController
732 def show_with_respond_to_block
733 @article = Article.find(params[:id])
734
735
736 # If the request sends headers that differs from the options provided to stale?, then
737 # the request is indeed stale and the respond_to block is triggered (and the options
738 # to the stale? call is set on the response).
739 #
740 # If the request headers match, then the request is fresh and the respond_to block is
741 # not triggered. Instead the default render will occur, which will check the last-modified
742 # and etag headers and conclude that it only needs to send a "304 Not Modified" instead
743 # of rendering the template.
744 if stale?(:last_modified => @article.published_at.utc, :etag => @article)
745 respond_to do |wants|
746 # normal response processing
747 end
748 end
749 end
750
751 def show_with_implied_render
752 @article = Article.find(params[:id])
753
754 # Sets the response headers and checks them against the request, if the request is stale
755 # (i.e. no match of either etag or last-modified), then the default render of the template happens.
756 # If the request is fresh, then the default render will return a "304 Not Modified"
757 # instead of rendering the template.
758 fresh_when(:last_modified => @article.published_at.utc, :etag => @article)
759 end
760 end
761
762
763 * Added inline builder yield to atom_feed_helper tags where appropriate [Sam Ruby]. Example:
764
765 entry.summary :type => 'xhtml' do |xhtml|
766 xhtml.p pluralize(order.line_items.count, "line item")
767 xhtml.p "Shipped to #{order.address}"
768 xhtml.p "Paid by #{order.pay_type}"
769 end
770
771 * Make PrototypeHelper#submit_to_remote a wrapper around PrototypeHelper#button_to_remote. *Tarmo Tänav*
772
773 * Set HttpOnly for the cookie session store's cookie. #1046
774
775 * Added FormTagHelper#image_submit_tag confirm option #784 *Alastair Brunton*
776
777 * Fixed FormTagHelper#submit_tag with :disable_with option wouldn't submit the button's value when was clicked #633 *Jose Fernandez*
778
779 * Stopped logging template compiles as it only clogs up the log *David Heinemeier Hansson*
780
781 * Changed the X-Runtime header to report in milliseconds *David Heinemeier Hansson*
782
783 * Changed BenchmarkHelper#benchmark to report in milliseconds *David Heinemeier Hansson*
784
785 * Changed logging format to be millisecond based and skip misleading stats [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Went from:
786
787 Completed in 0.10000 (4 reqs/sec) | Rendering: 0.04000 (40%) | DB: 0.00400 (4%) | 200 OK [http://example.com]
788
789 ...to:
790
791 Completed in 100ms (View: 40, DB: 4) | 200 OK [http://example.com]
792
793 * Add support for shallow nesting of routes. #838 *S. Brent Faulkner*
794
795 Example :
796
797 map.resources :users, :shallow => true do |user|
798 user.resources :posts
799 end
800
801 - GET /users/1/posts (maps to PostsController#index action as usual)
802 named route "user_posts" is added as usual.
803
804 - GET /posts/2 (maps to PostsController#show action as if it were not nested)
805 Additionally, named route "post" is added too.
806
807 * Added button_to_remote helper. #3641 *Donald Piret, Tarmo Tänav*
808
809 * Deprecate render_component. Please use render_component plugin from http://github.com/rails/render_component/tree/master *Pratik Naik*
810
811 * Routes may be restricted to lists of HTTP methods instead of a single method or :any. #407 *Brennan Dunn, Gaius Centus Novus*
812 map.resource :posts, :collection => { :search => [:get, :post] }
813 map.session 'session', :requirements => { :method => [:get, :post, :delete] }
814
815 * Deprecated implicit local assignments when rendering partials *Josh Peek*
816
817 * Introduce current_cycle helper method to return the current value without bumping the cycle. #417 *Ken Collins*
818
819 * Allow polymorphic_url helper to take url options. #880 *Tarmo Tänav*
820
821 * Switched integration test runner to use Rack processor instead of CGI *Josh Peek*
822
823 * Made AbstractRequest.if_modified_sense return nil if the header could not be parsed *Jamis Buck*
824
825 * Added back ActionController::Base.allow_concurrency flag *Josh Peek*
826
827 * 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*
828
829 * Update Prototype to 1.6.0.2 #599 *Patrick Joyce*
830
831 * Conditional GET utility methods. *Jeremy Kemper*
832 response.last_modified = @post.updated_at
833 response.etag = [:admin, @post, current_user]
834
835 if request.fresh?(response)
836 head :not_modified
837 else
838 # render ...
839 end
840
841 * All 2xx requests are considered successful *Josh Peek*
842
843 * 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*
844
845 * Removed config.action_view.cache_template_loading, use config.cache_classes instead *Josh Peek*
846
847 * Get buffer for fragment cache from template's @output_buffer *Josh Peek*
848
849 * 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*
850
851 * Refactor template preloading. New abstractions include Renderable mixins and a refactored Template class *Josh Peek*
852
853 * Changed ActionView::TemplateHandler#render API method signature to render(template, local_assigns = {}) *Josh Peek*
854
855 * 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*
856
857 * Add :recursive option to javascript_include_tag and stylesheet_link_tag to be used along with :all. #480 *Damian Janowski*
858
859 * Allow users to disable the use of the Accept header *Michael Koziarski*
860
861 The accept header is poorly implemented by browsers and causes strange
862 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.
863 To disable the header you need to set:
864 config.action_controller.use_accept_header = false
865 * 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*
866
867 * Deprecated TemplateHandler line offset *Josh Peek*
868
869 * Allow caches_action to accept cache store options. #416. [José Valim]. Example:
870
871 caches_action :index, :redirected, :if => Proc.new { |c| !c.request.format.json? }, :expires_in => 1.hour
872
873 * Remove define_javascript_functions, javascript_include_tag and friends are far superior. *Michael Koziarski*
874
875 * Deprecate :use_full_path render option. The supplying the option no longer has an effect *Josh Peek*
876
877 * Add :as option to render a collection of partials with a custom local variable name. #509 *Simon Jefford, Pratik Naik*
878
879 render :partial => 'other_people', :collection => @people, :as => :person
880
881 This will let you access objects of @people as 'person' local variable inside 'other_people' partial template.
882
883 * time_zone_select: support for regexp matching of priority zones. Resolves #195 *Ernie Miller*
884
885 * Made ActionView::Base#render_file private *Josh Peek*
886
887 * 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*
888
889 This could cause some erroneous test failures if you were redirecting between controllers
890 in different namespaces and wrote your assertions relative to the root of the application.
891
892 * Remove follow_redirect from controller functional tests.
893
894 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=>...
895 * Fix polymorphic_url with singleton resources. #461 *Tammer Saleh*
896
897 * Replaced TemplateFinder abstraction with ViewLoadPaths *Josh Peek*
898
899 * Added block-call style to link_to [Sam Stephenson/David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
900
901 <% link_to(@profile) do %>
902 <strong><%= @profile.name %></strong> -- <span>Check it out!!</span>
903 <% end %>
904
905 * Performance: integration test benchmarking and profiling. *Jeremy Kemper*
906
907 * Make caching more aware of mime types. Ensure request format is not considered while expiring cache. *Jonathan del Strother*
908
909 * Drop ActionController::Base.allow_concurrency flag *Josh Peek*
910
911 * More efficient concat and capture helpers. Remove ActionView::Base.erb_variable. *Jeremy Kemper*
912
913 * Added page.reload functionality. Resolves #277. *Sean Huber*
914
915 * 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*
916
917 * Allow caches_action to accept a layout option *José Valim*
918
919 * Added Rack processor *Ezra Zygmuntowicz, Josh Peek*
920
921
922 ## 2.1.0 (May 31st, 2008) ##
923
924 * InstanceTag#default_time_from_options overflows to DateTime *Geoff Buesing*
925
926 * Fixed that forgery protection can be used without session tracking (Peter Jones) *#139*
927
928 * Added session(:on) to turn session management back on in a controller subclass if the superclass turned it off (Peter Jones) *#136*
929
930 * Change the request forgery protection to go by Content-Type instead of request.format so that you can't bypass it by POSTing to "#{request.uri}.xml" *Rick Olson*

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

1958
1959 * 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*
1960
1961 * Singleton resources: POST /singleton => create, GET /singleton/new => new. *Jeremy Kemper*

1986
1987 GET /account
1988 GET /account;edit
1989 UPDATE /account
1990 DELETE /account
1991
1992 * 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*
1993 # application/json response with body 'Element.show({:name: "David"})'
1994 respond_to do |format|
1995 format.json { render :json => { :name => "David" }.to_json, :callback => 'Element.show' }
1996 end
1997
1998 * Makes :discard_year work without breaking multi-attribute parsing in AR. #1260, #3800 *sean@ardismg.com, jmartin@desertflood.com, stephen@touset.org, Bob Silva*
1999
2000 * Adds html id attribute to date helper elements. #1050, #1382 *mortonda@dgrmm.net, David North, Bob Silva*
2001
2002 * Add :index and @auto_index capability to model driven date/time selects. #847, #2655 *moriq, Doug Fales, Bob Silva*
2003
2004 * Add :order to datetime_select, select_datetime, and select_date. #1427 *Timothee Peignier, Patrick Lenz, Bob Silva*
2005
2006 * Added time_select to work with time values in models. Update scaffolding. #2489, #2833 *Justin Palmer, Andre Caum, Bob Silva*
2007
2008 * Added :include_seconds to select_datetime, datetime_select and time_select. #2998 *csn, Bob Silva*
2009
2010 * All date/datetime selects can now accept an array of month names with :use_month_names. Allows for localization. #363 *tomasj, Bob Silva*
2011
2012 * Adds :time_separator to select_time and :date_separator to select_datetime. Preserves BC. #3811 *Bob Silva*
2013
2014 * Added map.root as an alias for map.connect '' *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2015
2016 * 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:
2017
2018 GET /posts/5.xml | request.format => Mime::XML
2019 GET /posts/5.xhtml | request.format => Mime::HTML
2020 GET /posts/5 | request.format => request.accepts.first (usually Mime::HTML for browsers)
2021
2022 * Added the option for extension aliases to mime type registration [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example (already in the default routes):
2023
2024 Mime::Type.register "text/html", :html, %w( application/xhtml+xml ), %w( xhtml )
2025
2026 ...will respond on both .html and .xhtml.
2027
2028 * @response.redirect_url works with 201 Created responses: just return headers['Location'] rather than checking the response status. *Jeremy Kemper*
2029
2030 * Added CSV to Mime::SET so that respond_to csv will work *Cody Fauser*
2031
2032 * Fixed that HEAD should return the proper Content-Length header (that is, actually use @body.size, not just 0) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2033
2034 * 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*
2035
2036 * Update Routing to complain when :controller is not specified by a route. Closes #6669. *Nicholas Seckar*
2037
2038 * Ensure render_to_string cleans up after itself when an exception is raised. #6658 *Rob Sanheim*
2039
2040 * Extract template_changed_since? from compile_template? so plugins may override its behavior for non-file-based templates. #6651 *Jeff Barczewski*
2041
2042 * Update to Prototype and script.aculo.us [5579]. *Thomas Fuchs*
2043
2044 * simple_format helper doesn't choke on nil. #6644 *jerry426*
2045
2046 * Update to Prototype 1.5.0_rc2 [5550] which makes it work in Opera again *Thomas Fuchs*
2047
2048 * 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*
2049
2050 * ActionView::Base.erb_variable accessor names the buffer variable used to render templates. Defaults to _erbout; use _buf for erubis. *Rick Olson*
2051
2052 * assert_select_rjs :remove. *Dylan Egan*
2053
2054 * Always clear model associations from session. #4795 *sd@notso.net, andylien@gmail.com*
2055
2056 * Update to Prototype 1.5.0_rc2. *Sam Stephenson*
2057
2058 * Remove JavaScriptLiteral in favor of ActiveSupport::JSON::Variable. *Sam Stephenson*
2059
2060 * Sync ActionController::StatusCodes::STATUS_CODES with http://www.iana.org/assignments/http-status-codes. #6586 *dkubb*
2061
2062 * 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*
2063
2064 * assert_response supports symbolic status codes. #6569 *Kevin Clark*
2065 assert_response :ok
2066 assert_response :not_found
2067 assert_response :forbidden
2068
2069 * Cache parsed query parameters. #6559 *Stefan Kaes*
2070
2071 * Deprecate JavaScriptHelper#update_element_function, which is superseeded by RJS *Thomas Fuchs*
2072
2073 * pluralize helper interprets nil as zero. #6474 *Tim Pope*
2074
2075 * Fix invalid test fixture exposed by stricter Ruby 1.8.5 multipart parsing. #6524 *Bob Silva*
2076
2077 * Set ActionView::Base.default_form_builder once rather than passing the :builder option to every form or overriding the form helper methods. *Jeremy Kemper*
2078
2079 * Deprecate expire_matched_fragments. Use expire_fragment instead. #6535 *Bob Silva*
2080
2081 * 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*
2082
2083 * Deprecate start_form_tag and end_form_tag. Use form_tag / '</form>' from now on. *Rick Olson*
2084
2085 * Added block-usage to PrototypeHelper#form_remote_tag, document block-usage of FormTagHelper#form_tag *Rick Olson*
2086
2087 * Add a 0 margin/padding div around the hidden _method input tag that form_tag outputs. *Rick Olson*
2088
2089 * Added block-usage to TagHelper#content_tag [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
2090
2091 <% content_tag :div, :class => "strong" %>
2092 Hello world!
2093 <% end %>
2094
2095 Will output:
2096 <div class="strong">Hello world!</div>
2097
2098 * Deprecated UrlHelper#link_to_image and UrlHelper#link_to :post => true #6409 *Bob Silva*
2099
2100 * 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*
2101
2102 * Fixed that setting RAILS_ASSET_ID to "" should not add a trailing slash after assets #6454 *Bob Silva/chrismear*
2103
2104 * Force *_url named routes to show the host in ActionView *Rick Olson*
2105
2106 <%= url_for ... %> # no host
2107 <%= foo_path %> # no host
2108 <%= foo_url %> # host!
2109
2110 * Add support for converting blocks into function arguments to JavaScriptGenerator#call and JavaScriptProxy#call. *Sam Stephenson*
2111
2112 * Add JavaScriptGenerator#literal for wrapping a string in an object whose #to_json is the string itself. *Sam Stephenson*
2113
2114 * Add <%= escape_once html %> to escape html while leaving any currently escaped entities alone. Fix button_to double-escaping issue. *Rick Olson*

2123
2124 * Replace KCODE checks with String#chars for truncate. Closes #6385 *Manfred Stienstra*
2125
2126 * 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.*
2127
2128 * Use String#chars in TextHelper::excerpt. Closes #6386 *Manfred Stienstra*
2129
2130 * Install named routes into ActionView::Base instead of proxying them to the view via helper_method. Closes #5932. *Nicholas Seckar*
2131
2132 * Update to latest Prototype and script.aculo.us trunk versions *Thomas Fuchs*
2133
2134 * Fix relative URL root matching problems. *Mark Imbriaco*

2137
2138 * 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*
2139
2140 * Rename test assertion to prevent shadowing. Closes #6306. *psross*
2141
2142 * Fixed that NumberHelper#number_to_delimiter should respect precision of higher than two digits #6231 *Philip Hallstrom*
2143
2144 * Fixed that FormHelper#radio_button didn't respect an :id being passed in #6266 *evansj*
2145
2146 * Added an html_options hash parameter to javascript_tag() and update_page_tag() helpers #6311 [tzaharia]. Example:
2147
2148 update_page_tag :defer => 'true' { |page| ... }
2149
2150 Gives:
2151
2152 <script defer="true" type="text/javascript">...</script>
2153
2154 Which is needed for dealing with the IE6 DOM when it's not yet fully loaded.
2155
2156 * Fixed that rescue template path shouldn't be hardcoded, then it's easier to hook in your own #6295 *Mike Naberezny*
2157
2158 * Fixed escaping of backslashes in JavaScriptHelper#escape_javascript #6302 *sven@c3d2.de*
2159
2160 * Fixed that some 500 rescues would cause 500's themselves because the response had not yet been generated #6329 *cmselmer*
2161
2162 * respond_to :html doesn't assume .rhtml. #6281 *Hampton Catlin*
2163
2164 * Fixed some deprecation warnings in ActionPack *Rick Olson*
2165
2166 * assert_select_rjs decodes escaped unicode chars since the Javascript generators encode them. #6240 *japgolly*
2167
2168 * Deprecation: @cookies, @headers, @request, @response will be removed after 1.2. Use the corresponding method instead. *Jeremy Kemper*
2169
2170 * 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:
2171
2172 head :status => 404 # expands to "404 Not Found"
2173 head :status => :not_found # expands to "404 Not Found"
2174 head :status => :created # expands to "201 Created"
2175
2176 * Add head(options = {}) for responses that have no body. [Jamis Buck]. Examples:
2177
2178 head :status => 404 # return an empty response with a 404 status
2179 head :location => person_path(@person), :status => 201
2180
2181 * Fix bug that kept any before_filter except the first one from being able to halt the before_filter chain. *Rick Olson*
2182
2183 * strip_links is case-insensitive. #6285 *tagoh, Bob Silva*
2184
2185 * Clear the cache of possible controllers whenever Routes are reloaded. *Nicholas Seckar*
2186
2187 * Filters overhaul including meantime filter support using around filters + blocks. #5949 *Martin Emde, Roman Le Negrate, Stefan Kaes, Jeremy Kemper*
2188
2189 * Update RJS render tests. *sam*
2190
2191 * Update CGI process to allow sessions to contain namespaced models. Closes #4638. *dfelstead@site5.com*
2192
2193 * Fix routing to respect user provided requirements and defaults when assigning default routing options (such as :action => 'index'). Closes #5950. *Nicholas Seckar*
2194
2195 * Rescue Errno::ECONNRESET to handle an unexpectedly closed socket connection. Improves SCGI reliability. #3368, #6226 *sdsykes, fhanshaw@vesaria.com*
2196
2197 * Added that respond_to blocks will automatically set the content type to be the same as is requested [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
2198
2199 respond_to do |format|
2200 format.html { render :text => "I'm being sent as text/html" }
2201 format.rss { render :text => "I'm being sent as application/rss+xml" }
2202 format.atom { render :text => "I'm being sent as application/xml", :content_type => Mime::XML }
2203 end
2204
2205 * Added utf-8 as the default charset for all renders. You can change this default using ActionController::Base.default_charset=(encoding) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2206
2207 * Added proper getters and setters for content type and charset [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example of what we used to do:
2208
2209 response.headers["Content-Type"] = "application/atom+xml; charset=utf-8"
2210
2211 ...now:
2212
2213 response.content_type = Mime::ATOM
2214 response.charset = "utf-8"
2215
2216 * Updated prototype.js to 1.5.0_rc1 with latest fixes. *Rick Olson*
2217
2218 - XPATH support
2219 - Make Form.getElements() return elements in the correct order
2220 - fix broken Form.serialize return
2221
2222 * Declare file extensions exempt from layouts. #6219 *brandon*
2223 Example: ActionController::Base.exempt_from_layout 'rpdf'
2224
2225 * Add chained replace/update support for assert_select_rjs *Rick Olson*
2226
2227 Given RJS like...
2228
2229 page['test1'].replace "<div id=\"1\">foo</div>"
2230 page['test2'].replace_html "<div id=\"2\">foo</div>"
2231
2232 Test it with...
2233
2234 assert_select_rjs :chained_replace
2235 assert_select_rjs :chained_replace, "test1"
2236
2237 assert_select_rjs :chained_replace_html
2238 assert_select_rjs :chained_replace_html, "test2"
2239
2240 * Load helpers in alphabetical order for consistency. Resolve cyclic javascript_helper dependency. #6132, #6178 *choonkeat@gmail.com*
2241
2242 * Skip params with empty names, such as the &=Save query string from <input type="submit"/>. #2569 *Manfred Stienstra, raphinou@yahoo.com*
2243
2244 * Fix assert_tag so that :content => "foo" does not match substrings, but only exact strings. Use :content => /foo/ to match substrings. #2799 *Eric Hodel*
2245
2246 * Add descriptive messages to the exceptions thrown by cgi_methods. #6091, #6103 *Nicholas Seckar, Bob Silva*
2247
2248 * Update JavaScriptGenerator#show/hide/toggle/remove to new Prototype syntax for multiple ids, #6068 *petermichaux@gmail.com*
2249
2250 * Update UrlWriter to support :only_path. *Nicholas Seckar, Dave Thomas*
2251
2252 * 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:
2253
2254 link_to("Hider", nil, :class => "hider_link") { |p| p[:something].hide }
2255
2256 ...can be written like this:
2257
2258 link_to("Hider", :class => "hider_link") { |p| p[:something].hide }
2259
2260 * Update to script.aculo.us 1.6.3 *Thomas Fuchs*
2261
2262 * Update to Prototype 1.5.0_rc1 *sam*
2263
2264 * Added access to nested attributes in RJS #4548 [richcollins@gmail.com]. Examples:
2265
2266 page['foo']['style'] # => $('foo').style;
2267 page['foo']['style']['color'] # => $('blank_slate').style.color;
2268 page['foo']['style']['color'] = 'red' # => $('blank_slate').style.color = 'red';
2269 page['foo']['style'].color = 'red' # => $('blank_slate').style.color = 'red';
2270
2271 * Fixed that AssetTagHelper#image_tag and others using compute_public_path should not modify the incoming source argument (closes #5102) *eule@space.ch*
2272
2273 * Deprecated the auto-appending of .png to AssetTagHelper#image_tag calls that doesn't have an extension *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2274
2275 * Fixed FormOptionsHelper#select to respect :selected value #5813
2276
2277 * Fixed TextHelper#simple_format to deal with multiple single returns within a single paragraph #5835 *moriq@moriq.com*
2278
2279 * Fixed TextHelper#pluralize to handle 1 as a string #5909 *rails@bencurtis.com*
2280
2281 * Improved resolution of DateHelper#distance_of_time_in_words for better precision #5994 *Bob Silva*
2282
2283 * 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*
2284
2285 * Integration tests: thoroughly test ActionController::Integration::Session. #6022 *Kevin Clark*
2286 (tests skipped unless you `gem install mocha`)
2287
2288 * Added deprecation language for pagination which will become a plugin by Rails 2.0 *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2289
2290 * Added deprecation language for in_place_editor and auto_complete_field that both pieces will become plugins by Rails 2.0 *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2291
2292 * Deprecated all of ActionController::Dependencies. All dependency loading is now handled from Active Support *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2293
2294 * Added assert_select* for CSS selector-based testing (deprecates assert_tag) #5936 *assaf.arkin@gmail.com*
2295
2296 * radio_button_tag generates unique id attributes. #3353 *Bob Silva, somekool@gmail.com*
2297
2298 * strip_tags passes through blank args such as nil or "". #2229, #6702 *duncan@whomwah.com, dharana*
2299
2300 * Cleanup assert_tag :children counting. #2181 *jamie@bravenet.com*
2301
2302 * button_to accepts :method so you can PUT and DELETE with it. #6005 *Dan Webb*
2303
2304 * Update sanitize text helper to strip plaintext tags, and <img src="javascript:bang">. *Rick Olson*
2305
2306 * Update routing documentation. Closes #6017 *Nathan Witmer*
2307
2308 * Add routing tests to assert that RoutingError is raised when conditions aren't met. Closes #6016 *Nathan Witmer*
2309
2310 * Deprecation: update docs. #5998 *Jakob Skjerning, Kevin Clark*
2311
2312 * Make auto_link parse a greater subset of valid url formats. *Jamis Buck*
2313
2314 * 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*
2315
2316 * Tighten rescue clauses. #5985 *james@grayproductions.net*
2317
2318 * Fix send_data documentation typo. #5982 *brad@madriska.com*
2319
2320 * Switch to using FormEncodedPairParser for parsing request parameters. *Nicholas Seckar, David Heinemeier Hansson*
2321
2322 * 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*
2323
2324 * Deprecation: test deprecated instance vars in partials. *Jeremy Kemper*
2325
2326 * Add UrlWriter to allow writing urls from Mailers and scripts. *Nicholas Seckar*
2327
2328 * Clean up and run the Active Record integration tests by default. #5854 *Kevin Clark, Jeremy Kemper*
2329
2330 * Correct example in cookies docs. #5832 *jessemerriman@warpmail.net*
2331
2332 * Updated to script.aculo.us 1.6.2 *Thomas Fuchs*
2333
2334 * Relax Routing's anchor pattern warning; it was preventing use of [^/] inside restrictions. *Nicholas Seckar*
2335
2336 * Add controller_paths variable to Routing. *Nicholas Seckar*
2337
2338 * Fix assert_redirected_to issue with named routes for module controllers. *Rick Olson*
2339
2340 * Tweak RoutingError message to show option diffs, not just missing named route significant keys. *Rick Olson*
2341
2342 * Invoke method_missing directly on hidden actions. Closes #3030. *Nicholas Seckar*
2343
2344 * Require Tempfile explicitly for TestUploadedFile due to changes in class auto loading. *Rick Olson*
2345
2346 * Add RoutingError exception when RouteSet fails to generate a path from a Named Route. *Rick Olson*
2347
2348 * Replace Reloadable with Reloadable::Deprecated. *Nicholas Seckar*
2349
2350 * Deprecation: check whether instance variables have been monkeyed with before assigning them to deprecation proxies. Raises a RuntimeError if so. *Jeremy Kemper*
2351
2352 * Add support for the param_name parameter to the auto_complete_field helper. #5026 *david.a.williams@gmail.com*
2353
2354 * 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*
2355
2356 * Make Routing noisy when an anchor regexp is assigned to a segment. #5674 *François Beausoleil*
2357
2358 * 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*
2359
2360 * Short documentation to mention use of Mime::Type.register. #5710 *choonkeat@gmail.com*
2361
2362 * Make controller_path available as an instance method. #5724 *jmckible@gmail.com*
2363
2364 * Update query parser to support adjacent hashes. *Nicholas Seckar*
2365
2366 * 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.*
2367
2368 * Restrict Request Method hacking with ?_method to POST requests. *Rick Olson*
2369
2370 * Fix bug when passing multiple options to SimplyRestful, like :new => { :preview => :get, :draft => :get }. *Rick Olson, Josh Susser, Lars Pind*
2371
2372 * Dup the options passed to map.resources so that multiple resources get the same options. *Rick Olson*
2373
2374 * Fixed the new_#{resource}_url route and added named route tests for Simply Restful. *Rick Olson*
2375
2376 * Added map.resources from the Simply Restful plugin [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples (the API has changed to use plurals!):
2377
2378 map.resources :messages
2379 map.resources :messages, :comments
2380 map.resources :messages, :new => { :preview => :post }
2381
2382 * Fixed that integration simulation of XHRs should set Accept header as well *Edward Frederick*
2383
2384 * TestRequest#reset_session should restore a TestSession, not a hash *Michael Koziarski*
2385
2386 * Don't search a load-path of '.' for controller files *Jamis Buck*
2387
2388 * Update integration.rb to require test_process explicitly instead of via Dependencies. *Nicholas Seckar*
2389
2390 * Fixed that you can still access the flash after the flash has been reset in reset_session. Closes #5584 *lmarlow*
2391
2392 * Allow form_for and fields_for to work with indexed form inputs. *Jeremy Kemper, Matt Lyon*
2393
2394 <% form_for 'post[]', @post do |f| -%>
2395 <% end -%>
2396
2397 * Remove leak in development mode by replacing define_method with module_eval. *Nicholas Seckar*
2398
2399 * Provide support for decimal columns to form helpers. Closes #5672. *Dave Thomas*
2400
2401 * Update documentation for erb trim syntax. #5651 *matt@mattmargolis.net*
2402

2405 * Reset @html_document between requests so assert_tag works. #4810 *Jarkko Laine, easleydp@gmail.com*
2406
2407 * Update render :partial documentation. #5646 *matt@mattmargolis.net*
2408
2409 * Integration tests behave well with render_component. #4632 *edward.frederick@revolution.com, dev.rubyonrails@maxdunn.com*
2410
2411 * Added exception handling of missing layouts #5373 *chris@ozmm.org*
2412
2413 * Fixed that real files and symlinks should be treated the same when compiling templates #5438 *zachary@panandscan.com*
2414
2415 * Fixed that the flash should be reset when reset_session is called #5584 *Shugo Maeda*
2416
2417 * Added special case for "1 Byte" in NumberHelper#number_to_human_size #5593 *murpyh@rubychan.de*
2418
2419 * 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*
2420
2421 * Add route_name_path method to generate only the path for a named routes. For example, map.person will add person_path. *Nicholas Seckar*
2422
2423 * Avoid naming collision among compiled view methods. *Jeremy Kemper*
2424
2425 * Fix CGI extensions when they expect string but get nil in Windows. Closes #5276 *Mislav Marohnić*
2426
2427 * Determine the correct template_root for deeply nested components. #2841 *s.brink@web.de*
2428
2429 * Fix that routes with *path segments in the recall can generate URLs. *Rick Olson*
2430
2431 * Fix strip_links so that it doesn't hang on multiline <acronym> tags *Jamis Buck*
2432
2433 * Remove problematic control chars in rescue template. #5316 *Stefan Kaes*
2434
2435 * Make sure passed routing options are not mutated by routing code. #5314 *Blair Zajac*
2436
2437 * Make sure changing the controller from foo/bar to bing/bang does not change relative to foo. *Jamis Buck*
2438
2439 * Escape the path before routing recognition. #3671
2440
2441 * Make sure :id and friends are unescaped properly. #5275 *me@julik.nl*
2442
2443 * Fix documentation for with_routing to reflect new reality. #5281 *rramdas@gmail.com*
2444
2445 * 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*
2446
2447 * Added Mime::TEXT (text/plain) and Mime::ICS (text/calendar) as new default types *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2448
2449 * Added Mime::Type.register(string, symbol, synonyms = []) for adding new custom mime types [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example: Mime::Type.register("image/gif", :gif)
2450
2451 * Added support for Mime objects in render :content_type option [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example: render :text => some_atom, :content_type => Mime::ATOM
2452
2453 * Add :status option to send_data and send_file. Defaults to '200 OK'. #5243 *Manfred Stienstra <m.stienstra@fngtps.com>*
2454
2455 * 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*
2456
2457 map.connect '/foo/:id', :controller => '...', :action => '...'
2458 map.connect '/foo/:id.:format', :controller => '...', :action => '...'
2459 map.connect '/foo/:id', ..., :conditions => { :method => :get }
2460
2461 * Cope with missing content type and length headers. Parse parameters from multipart and urlencoded request bodies only. *Jeremy Kemper*
2462
2463 * Accept multipart PUT parameters. #5235 *guy.naor@famundo.com*
2464
2465 * 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:
2466
2467 class WeblogController < ActionController::Base
2468 def index
2469 @posts = Post.find :all
2470
2471 respond_to do |format|
2472 format.html
2473 format.xml { render :xml => @posts.to_xml }
2474 format.rss { render :action => "feed.rxml" }
2475 end
2476 end
2477 end
2478
2479 \# returns HTML when requested by a browser, since the browser
2480 \# has the HTML mimetype at the top of its priority list
2481 Accept: text/html
2482 GET /weblog
2483
2484 \# returns the XML
2485 Accept: application/xml
2486 GET /weblog
2487
2488 \# returns the HTML
2489 Accept: application/xml
2490 GET /weblog.html
2491
2492 \# returns the XML
2493 Accept: text/html
2494 GET /weblog.xml
2495
2496 All this relies on the fact that you have a route that includes .:format.
2497
2498 * 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*
2499
2500 * 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*
2501
2502 * follow_redirect doesn't complain about being redirected to the same controller. #5153 *dymo@mk.ukrtelecom.ua*
2503
2504 * Add layout attribute to response object with the name of the layout that was rendered, or nil if none rendered. *Kevin Clark*
2505
2506 * Fix NoMethodError when parsing params like &&. *Adam Greenfield*
2507
2508 * Fix flip flopped logic in docs for url_for's :only_path option. Closes #4998. *esad@esse.at*
2509
2510 * form.text_area handles the :size option just like the original text_area (:size => '60x10' becomes cols="60" rows="10"). *Jeremy Kemper*
2511
2512 * Excise ingrown code from FormOptionsHelper#options_for_select. #5008 *anonymous*
2513
2514 * Small fix in routing to allow dynamic routes (broken after [4242]) *Rick Olson*
2515
2516 map.connect '*path', :controller => 'files', :action => 'show'
2517
2518 * Replace alias method chaining with Module#alias_method_chain. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
2519
2520 * Replace Ruby's deprecated append_features in favor of included. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
2521
2522 * Use #flush between switching from #write to #syswrite. Closes #4907. *Blair Zajac <blair@orcaware.com>*
2523
2524 * Documentation fix: integration test scripts don't require integration_test. Closes #4914. *Frederick Ros <sl33p3r@free.fr>*
2525
2526 * ActionController::Base Summary documentation rewrite. Closes #4900. *Kevin Clark*
2527
2528 * Fix text_helper.rb documentation rendering. Closes #4725. *Frederick Ros*
2529
2530 * Fixes bad rendering of JavaScriptMacrosHelper rdoc (closes #4910) *Frederick Ros*
2531
2532 * 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.*
2533
2534 error_messages_for :account, :user, :subscription, :object_name => :account
2535
2536 * Enhance documentation for setting headers in integration tests. Skip auto HTTP prepending when its already there. Closes #4079. *Rick Olson*
2537
2538 * Documentation for AbstractRequest. Closes #4895. *Kevin Clark*
2539
2540 * Refactor various InstanceTag instance method to class methods. Closes #4800. *Stefan Kaes*
2541
2542 * Remove all remaining references to @params in the documentation. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
2543
2544 * Add documentation for redirect_to :back's RedirectBackError exception. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
2545
2546 * Update layout and content_for documentation to use yield rather than magic @content_for instance variables. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
2547
2548 * Fix assert_redirected_to tests according to real-world usage. Also, don't fail if you add an extra :controller option: *Rick Olson*
2549
2550 redirect_to :action => 'new'
2551 assert_redirected_to :controller => 'monkeys', :action => 'new'
2552
2553 * Cache CgiRequest#request_parameters so that multiple calls don't re-parse multipart data. *Rick Olson*
2554
2555 * Diff compared routing options. Allow #assert_recognizes to take a second arg as a hash to specify optional request method *Rick Olson*
2556
2557 assert_recognizes({:controller => 'users', :action => 'index'}, 'users')
2558 assert_recognizes({:controller => 'users', :action => 'create'}, {:path => 'users', :method => :post})
2559
2560 * Diff compared options with #assert_redirected_to *Rick Olson*
2561
2562 * Add support in routes for semicolon delimited "subpaths", like /books/:id;:action *Jamis Buck*
2563
2564 * 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*
2565
2566 * 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*
2567
2568 * 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*
2569
2570 * 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*
2571 ex. verify :only => :speak, :method => :post,
2572 :render => { :status => 405, :text => "Must be post" },
2573 :add_headers => { "Allow" => "POST" }
2574
2575 * 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*
2576
2577

2581
2582 * session_enabled? works with session :off. #6680 *Jonathan del Strother*
2583
2584 * Performance: patch cgi/session to require digest/md5 once rather than per #create_new_id. *Stefan Kaes*
2585
2586
2587 ## 1.13.2 (February 5th, 2007) ##
2588
2589 * Add much-needed html-scanner tests. Fixed CDATA parsing bug. *Rick Olson*
2590
2591 * improve error message for Routing for named routes. *Rob Sanheim*
2592
2593 * Added enhanced docs to routing assertions. *Rob Sanheim*
2594
2595 * fix form_for example in ActionController::Resources documentation. *gnarg*
2596
2597 * Add singleton resources from trunk *Rick Olson*

2600
2601 * Improve routes documentation. #7095 *zackchandler*
2602
2603 * Resource member routes require :id, eliminating the ambiguous overlap with collection routes. #7229 *dkubb*

2632
2633 * Fix HTML::Node to output double quotes instead of single quotes. Closes #6845 *mitreandy*
2634
2635 * Fix no method error with error_messages_on. Closes #6935 *nik.wakelin Koz*
2636
2637 * Slight doc tweak to the ActionView::Helpers::PrototypeHelper#replace docs. Closes #6922 *Steven Bristol*
2638

2647 * Make sure html_document is reset between integration test requests. *ctm*
2648
2649 * 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*
2650
2651 * 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*
2652
2653 * Ensure render :json => ... skips the layout. #6808 *Josh Peek*
2654
2655 * Silence log_error deprecation warnings from inspecting deprecated instance variables. *Nate Wiger*
2656
2657 * Only cache GET requests with a 200 OK response. #6514, #6743 *RSL, anamba*
2658
2659 * Correctly report which filter halted the chain. #6699 *Martin Emde*
2660
2661 * 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*
2662 # application/json response with body 'Element.show({:name: "David"})'
2663 respond_to do |format|
2664 format.json { render :json => { :name => "David" }.to_json, :callback => 'Element.show' }
2665 end
2666
2667 * Makes :discard_year work without breaking multi-attribute parsing in AR. #1260, #3800 *sean@ardismg.com, jmartin@desertflood.com, stephen@touset.org, Bob Silva*
2668
2669 * Adds html id attribute to date helper elements. #1050, #1382 *mortonda@dgrmm.net, David North, Bob Silva*
2670
2671 * Add :index and @auto_index capability to model driven date/time selects. #847, #2655 *moriq, Doug Fales, Bob Silva*
2672
2673 * Add :order to datetime_select, select_datetime, and select_date. #1427 *Timothee Peignier, Patrick Lenz, Bob Silva*
2674
2675 * Added time_select to work with time values in models. Update scaffolding. #2489, #2833 *Justin Palmer, Andre Caum, Bob Silva*
2676
2677 * Added :include_seconds to select_datetime, datetime_select and time_select. #2998 *csn, Bob Silva*
2678
2679 * All date/datetime selects can now accept an array of month names with :use_month_names. Allows for localization. #363 *tomasj, Bob Silva*
2680
2681 * Adds :time_separator to select_time and :date_separator to select_datetime. Preserves BC. #3811 *Bob Silva*
2682
2683 * @response.redirect_url works with 201 Created responses: just return headers['Location'] rather than checking the response status. *Jeremy Kemper*
2684
2685 * Fixed that HEAD should return the proper Content-Length header (that is, actually use @body.size, not just 0) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2686
2687 * 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*
2688
2689
2690 ## 1.13.0 RC1 (r5619, November 22nd, 2006) ##
2691
2692 * Update Routing to complain when :controller is not specified by a route. Closes #6669. *Nicholas Seckar*

2694 * Ensure render_to_string cleans up after itself when an exception is raised. #6658 *rsanheim*
2695
2696 * Update to Prototype and script.aculo.us [5579]. *Sam Stephenson, Thomas Fuchs*
2697
2698 * simple_format helper doesn't choke on nil. #6644 *jerry426*
2699
2700 * 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*
2701
2702 * Deprecate standalone components. *Jeremy Kemper*
2703
2704 * Always clear model associations from session. #4795 *sd@notso.net, andylien@gmail.com*
2705
2706 * Remove JavaScriptLiteral in favor of ActiveSupport::JSON::Variable. *Sam Stephenson*
2707
2708 * Sync ActionController::StatusCodes::STATUS_CODES with http://www.iana.org/assignments/http-status-codes. #6586 *dkubb*

2711
2712 * assert_response supports symbolic status codes. #6569 *Kevin Clark*
2713 assert_response :ok
2714 assert_response :not_found
2715 assert_response :forbidden
2716
2717 * Cache parsed query parameters. #6559 *Stefan Kaes*
2718
2719 * Deprecate JavaScriptHelper#update_element_function, which is superseeded by RJS *Thomas Fuchs*
2720
2721 * Fix invalid test fixture exposed by stricter Ruby 1.8.5 multipart parsing. #6524 *Bob Silva*
2722
2723 * Set ActionView::Base.default_form_builder once rather than passing the :builder option to every form or overriding the form helper methods. *Jeremy Kemper*
2724
2725 * Deprecate expire_matched_fragments. Use expire_fragment instead. #6535 *Bob Silva*
2726
2727 * Deprecate start_form_tag and end_form_tag. Use form_tag / '</form>' from now on. *Rick Olson*
2728
2729 * Added block-usage to PrototypeHelper#form_remote_tag, document block-usage of FormTagHelper#form_tag *Rick Olson*
2730
2731 * Add a 0 margin/padding div around the hidden _method input tag that form_tag outputs. *Rick Olson*
2732
2733 * Added block-usage to TagHelper#content_tag [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
2734
2735 <% content_tag :div, :class => "strong" %>
2736 Hello world!
2737 <% end %>
2738
2739 Will output:
2740 <div class="strong">Hello world!</div>
2741
2742 * Deprecated UrlHelper#link_to_image and UrlHelper#link_to :post => true #6409 *Bob Silva*
2743
2744 * 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*
2745
2746 * Fixed that setting RAILS_ASSET_ID to "" should not add a trailing slash after assets #6454 *Bob Silva/chrismear*
2747
2748 * Force *_url named routes to show the host in ActionView *Rick Olson*
2749
2750 <%= url_for ... %> # no host
2751 <%= foo_path %> # no host
2752 <%= foo_url %> # host!
2753
2754 * Add support for converting blocks into function arguments to JavaScriptGenerator#call and JavaScriptProxy#call. *Sam Stephenson*
2755
2756 * Add JavaScriptGenerator#literal for wrapping a string in an object whose #to_json is the string itself. *Sam Stephenson*
2757
2758 * Add <%= escape_once html %> to escape html while leaving any currently escaped entities alone. Fix button_to double-escaping issue. *Rick Olson*
2759
2760 * Fix double-escaped entities, such as &amp;amp;, &amp;#123;, etc. *Rick Olson*
2761
2762 * Fix routing to correctly determine when generation fails. Closes #6300. [psross].
2763
2764 * Fix broken assert_generates when extra keys are being checked. *Jamis Buck*
2765
2766 * Replace KCODE checks with String#chars for truncate. Closes #6385 *Manfred Stienstra*
2767
2768 * 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.*
2769
2770 * Use String#chars in TextHelper::excerpt. Closes #6386 *Manfred Stienstra*
2771
2772 * Fix relative URL root matching problems. *Mark Imbriaco*
2773
2774 * Fix filter skipping in controller subclasses. #5949, #6297, #6299 *Martin Emde*
2775
2776 * 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*
2777
2778 * Rename test assertion to prevent shadowing. Closes #6306. *psross*
2779
2780 * Fixed that NumberHelper#number_to_delimiter should respect precision of higher than two digits #6231 *Philip Hallstrom*
2781
2782 * Fixed that FormHelper#radio_button didn't respect an :id being passed in #6266 *evansj*
2783
2784 * Added an html_options hash parameter to javascript_tag() and update_page_tag() helpers #6311 [tzaharia]. Example:
2785
2786 update_page_tag :defer => 'true' { |page| ... }
2787
2788 Gives:
2789
2790 <script defer="true" type="text/javascript">...</script>
2791
2792 Which is needed for dealing with the IE6 DOM when it's not yet fully loaded.
2793
2794 * Fixed that rescue template path shouldn't be hardcoded, then it's easier to hook in your own #6295 *Mike Naberezny*
2795
2796 * Fixed escaping of backslashes in JavaScriptHelper#escape_javascript #6302 *sven@c3d2.de*
2797
2798 * Fixed that some 500 rescues would cause 500's themselves because the response had not yet been generated #6329 *cmselmer*
2799
2800 * respond_to :html doesn't assume .rhtml. #6281 *Hampton Catlin*
2801
2802 * Fixed some deprecation warnings in ActionPack *Rick Olson*
2803
2804 * assert_select_rjs decodes escaped unicode chars since the Javascript generators encode them. #6240 *japgolly*
2805
2806 * Deprecation: @cookies, @headers, @request, @response will be removed after 1.2. Use the corresponding method instead. *Jeremy Kemper*
2807
2808 * 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:
2809
2810 head :status => 404 # expands to "404 Not Found"
2811 head :status => :not_found # expands to "404 Not Found"
2812 head :status => :created # expands to "201 Created"
2813
2814 * Add head(options = {}) for responses that have no body. [Jamis Buck]. Examples:
2815
2816 head :status => 404 # return an empty response with a 404 status
2817 head :location => person_path(@person), :status => 201
2818
2819 * Fix bug that kept any before_filter except the first one from being able to halt the before_filter chain. *Rick Olson*
2820
2821 * strip_links is case-insensitive. #6285 *tagoh, Bob Silva*
2822
2823 * Clear the cache of possible controllers whenever Routes are reloaded. *Nicholas Seckar*
2824
2825 * Filters overhaul including meantime filter support using around filters + blocks. #5949 *Martin Emde, Roman Le Negrate, Stefan Kaes, Jeremy Kemper*
2826
2827 * Update CGI process to allow sessions to contain namespaced models. Closes #4638. *dfelstead@site5.com*
2828
2829 * Fix routing to respect user provided requirements and defaults when assigning default routing options (such as :action => 'index'). Closes #5950. *Nicholas Seckar*
2830
2831 * Rescue Errno::ECONNRESET to handle an unexpectedly closed socket connection. Improves SCGI reliability. #3368, #6226 *sdsykes, fhanshaw@vesaria.com*
2832
2833 * Added that respond_to blocks will automatically set the content type to be the same as is requested [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
2834
2835 respond_to do |format|
2836 format.html { render :text => "I'm being sent as text/html" }
2837 format.rss { render :text => "I'm being sent as application/rss+xml" }
2838 format.atom { render :text => "I'm being sent as application/xml", :content_type => Mime::XML }
2839 end
2840
2841 * Added utf-8 as the default charset for all renders. You can change this default using ActionController::Base.default_charset=(encoding) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2842
2843 * Added proper getters and setters for content type and charset [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example of what we used to do:
2844
2845 response.headers["Content-Type"] = "application/atom+xml; charset=utf-8"
2846
2847 ...now:
2848
2849 response.content_type = Mime::ATOM
2850 response.charset = "utf-8"
2851
2852 * Declare file extensions exempt from layouts. #6219 *brandon*
2853 Example: ActionController::Base.exempt_from_layout 'rpdf'
2854
2855 * Add chained replace/update support for assert_select_rjs *Rick Olson*
2856
2857 Given RJS like...
2858
2859 page['test1'].replace "<div id=\"1\">foo</div>"
2860 page['test2'].replace_html "<div id=\"2\">foo</div>"
2861
2862 Test it with...
2863
2864 assert_select_rjs :chained_replace
2865 assert_select_rjs :chained_replace, "test1"
2866
2867 assert_select_rjs :chained_replace_html
2868 assert_select_rjs :chained_replace_html, "test2"
2869
2870 * Load helpers in alphabetical order for consistency. Resolve cyclic javascript_helper dependency. #6132, #6178 *choonkeat@gmail.com*
2871
2872 * Skip params with empty names, such as the &=Save query string from <input type="submit"/>. #2569 *Manfred Stienstra, raphinou@yahoo.com*
2873
2874 * Fix assert_tag so that :content => "foo" does not match substrings, but only exact strings. Use :content => /foo/ to match substrings. #2799 *Eric Hodel*
2875
2876 * Update JavaScriptGenerator#show/hide/toggle/remove to new Prototype syntax for multiple ids, #6068 *petermichaux@gmail.com*
2877
2878 * Update UrlWriter to support :only_path. *Nicholas Seckar, Dave Thomas*
2879
2880 * 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:
2881
2882 link_to("Hider", nil, :class => "hider_link") { |p| p[:something].hide }
2883
2884 ...can be written like this:
2885
2886 link_to("Hider", :class => "hider_link") { |p| p[:something].hide }
2887
2888 * Added access to nested attributes in RJS #4548 [richcollins@gmail.com]. Examples:
2889
2890 page['foo']['style'] # => $('foo').style;
2891 page['foo']['style']['color'] # => $('blank_slate').style.color;
2892 page['foo']['style']['color'] = 'red' # => $('blank_slate').style.color = 'red';
2893 page['foo']['style'].color = 'red' # => $('blank_slate').style.color = 'red';
2894
2895 * Fixed that AssetTagHelper#image_tag and others using compute_public_path should not modify the incoming source argument (closes #5102) *eule@space.ch*
2896
2897 * Deprecated the auto-appending of .png to AssetTagHelper#image_tag calls that doesn't have an extension *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2898
2899 * Fixed FormOptionsHelper#select to respect :selected value #5813
2900
2901 * Fixed TextHelper#simple_format to deal with multiple single returns within a single paragraph #5835 *moriq@moriq.com*
2902
2903 * Fixed TextHelper#pluralize to handle 1 as a string #5909 *rails@bencurtis.com*
2904
