1 ## Rails 3.2.0 (unreleased) ##
2
3f65e7f @wfarr Add button_tag support to ActionView::Helpers::FormBuilder.
wfarr authored
3 * Add `button_tag` support to ActionView::Helpers::FormBuilder.
4
5 This support mimics the default behavior of `submit_tag`.
6
7 Example:
8
9 <%= form_for @post do |f| %>
10 <%= f.button %>
11 <% end %>
12
dc43e40 @DevL Added :use_two_digit_numbers option [Lennart Fridén & Kim Persson]
DevL authored
13 * Date helpers accept a new option, `:use_two_digit_numbers = true`, that renders select boxes for months and days with a leading zero without changing the respective values.
14 For example, this is useful for displaying ISO8601-style dates such as '2011-08-01'. *Lennart Fridén and Kim Persson*
15

dhh authored
16 * Make ActiveSupport::Benchmarkable a default module for ActionController::Base, so the #benchmark method is once again available in the controller context like it used to be *DHH*
17

josevalim authored
18 * Deprecated implied layout lookup in controllers whose parent had a explicit layout set:
19
20 class ApplicationController
21 layout "application"
22 end
23
24 class PostsController < ApplicationController
25 end
26
27 In the example above, Posts controller will no longer automatically look up for a posts layout.
28
29 If you need this functionality you could either remove `layout "application"` from ApplicationController or explicitly set it to nil in PostsController. *José Valim*
30
18ceed2 @sikachu Allow layout fallback when using `layout` method
sikachu authored
31 * Rails will now use your default layout (such as "layouts/application") when you specify a layout with `:only` and `:except` condition, and those conditions fail. *Prem Sichanugrist*
32
33 For example, consider this snippet:
34
35 class CarsController
36 layout 'single_car', :only => :show
37 end
38
39 Rails will use 'layouts/single_car' when a request comes in `:show` action, and use 'layouts/application' (or 'layouts/cars', if exists) when a request comes in for any other actions.
40
e29773f @nashby form_for with +:as+ option uses "action_as" as css class and id
nashby authored
41 * form_for with +:as+ option uses "#{action}_#{as}" as css class and id:
42
43 Before:
44
45 form_for(@user, :as => 'client') # => "<form class="client_new">..."
46
47 Now:
48
49 form_for(@user, :as => 'client') # => "<form class="new_client">..."
50
51 *Vasiliy Ermolovich*

2559256 @nashby update CHANGELOG
nashby authored
61 * You can provide a namespace for your form to ensure uniqueness of id attributes on form elements.
62 The namespace attribute will be prefixed with underscore on the generate HTML id. *Vasiliy Ermolovich*
63
64 Example:
65
66 <%= form_for(@offer, :namespace => 'namespace') do |f| %>
67 <%= f.label :version, 'Version' %>:
68 <%= f.text_field :version %>
69 <% end %>
70

josevalim authored
71 * Refactor ActionDispatch::ShowExceptions. The controller is responsible for choosing to show exceptions when `consider_all_requests_local` is false.
3a1d519 @lest deprecation warning, changelog entry
lest authored
72
654df86 @josevalim Show detailed exceptions no longer returns true if the request is local ...
josevalim authored
73 It's possible to override `show_detailed_exceptions?` in controllers to specify which requests should provide debugging information on errors. The default value is now false, meaning local requests in production will no longer show the detailed exceptions page unless `show_detailed_exceptions?` is overridden and set to `request.local?`.
3a1d519 @lest deprecation warning, changelog entry
lest authored
74
281272a @jonleighton Convert CHANGELOGs to Markdown format.
jonleighton authored
75 * Responders now return 204 No Content for API requests without a response body (as in the new scaffold) *José Valim*
76
77 * 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*
78
79 * Limit the number of options for select_year to 1000.
80
81 Pass the :max_years_allowed option to set your own limit.
82
83 *Libo Cannici*
84
85 * Passing formats or handlers to render :template and friends is deprecated. For example: *Nick Sutterer & José Valim*
86
87 render :template => "foo.html.erb"
88
89 Instead, you can provide :handlers and :formats directly as option:
90 render :template => "foo", :formats => [:html, :js], :handlers => :erb
91
92 * Changed log level of warning for missing CSRF token from :debug to :warn. *Mike Dillon*
93
94 * 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*
95
96 So instead of having to do this:
97
98 @items.each do |item|
99 content_tag_for(:li, item) do
100 Title: <%= item.title %>
101 end
102 end
103
104 You can now do this:
105
106 content_tag_for(:li, @items) do |item|
107 Title: <%= item.title %>
108 end
109
110 * send_file now guess the mime type *Esad Hajdarevic*
111
112 * Mime type entries for PDF, ZIP and other formats were added *Esad Hajdarevic*
113
114 * Generate hidden input before select with :multiple option set to true.
115 This is useful when you rely on the fact that when no options is set,
116 the state of select will be sent to rails application. Without hidden field
117 nothing is sent according to HTML spec *Bogdan Gusiev*
118
119 * Refactor ActionController::TestCase cookies *Andrew White*
120
121 Assigning cookies for test cases should now use cookies[], e.g:
122
123 cookies[:email] = 'user@example.com'
124 get :index
125 assert_equal 'user@example.com', cookies[:email]
126
127 To clear the cookies, use clear, e.g:
128
129 cookies.clear
130 get :index
131 assert_nil cookies[:email]
132
133 We now no longer write out HTTP_COOKIE and the cookie jar is
134 persistent between requests so if you need to manipulate the environment
135 for your test you need to do it before the cookie jar is created.
136

Jean-Francois Turcot authored
137 * ActionController::ParamsWrapper on ActiveRecord models now only wrap
138 attr_accessible attributes if they were set, if not, only the attributes
139 returned by the class method attribute_names will be wrapped. This fixes
140 the wrapping of nested attributes by adding them to attr_accessible.
141

lest authored
159 * Fix XSS security vulnerability in the `translate` helper method. When using interpolation
160 in combination with HTML-safe translations, the interpolated input would not get HTML
161 escaped. *GH 3664*
162
163 Before:
164
165 translate('foo_html', :something => '<script>') # => "...<script>..."
166

jonleighton authored
184 * Implement a workaround for a bug in ruby-1.9.3p0 where an error would be raised
185 while attempting to convert a template from one encoding to another.
186
187 Please see http://redmine.ruby-lang.org/issues/5564 for details of the bug.
188
189 The workaround is to load all conversions into memory ahead of time, and will
190 only happen if the ruby version is *exactly* 1.9.3p0. The hope is obviously that
191 the underlying problem will be resolved in the next patchlevel release of
192 1.9.3.

198 ## Rails 3.1.1 (unreleased) ##
199
200 * javascript_path and stylesheet_path now refer to /assets if asset pipelining
201 is on. [Santiago Pastorino]
202 * button_to support form option. Now you're able to pass for example
203 'data-type' => 'json'. [ihower]
204 * image_path and image_tag should use /assets if asset pipelining is turned
205 on. Closes #3126 [Santiago Pastorino and christos]
206 * Avoid use of existing precompiled assets during rake assets:precompile run.
207 Closes #3119 [Guillermo Iguaran]
208 * Copy assets to nondigested filenames too *Santiago Pastorino*
209
210 * Give precedence to `config.digest = false` over the existence of
211 manifest.yml asset digests [christos]
212 * escape options for the stylesheet_link_tag method *Alexey Vakhov*
213
214 * Re-launch assets:precompile task using (Rake.)ruby instead of Kernel.exec so
215 it works on Windows [cablegram]
216 * env var passed to process shouldn't be modified in process method. [Santiago
217 Pastorino]
218 * `rake assets:precompile` loads the application but does not initialize
219 it.
220 To the app developer, this means configuration add in
221 config/initializers/* will not be executed.
222 Plugins developers need to special case their initializers that are
223 meant to be run in the assets group by adding :group => :assets. *José Valim*
224
225 * Sprockets uses config.assets.prefix for asset_path *asee*
226
227 * FileStore key_file_path properly limit filenames to 255 characters. *phuibonhoa*
228
229 * Fix Hash#to_query edge case with html_safe strings. *brainopia*
230
231 * Allow asset tag helper methods to accept :digest => false option in order to completely avoid the digest generation.
232 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]
233 * Don't mount Sprockets server at config.assets.prefix if config.assets.compile is false. *Mark J. Titorenko*
234
235 * Set relative url root in assets when controller isn't available for Sprockets (eg. Sass files using asset_path). Fixes #2435 *Guillermo Iguaran*
236
237 * Fix basic auth credential generation to not make newlines. GH #2882
238
239 * Fixed the behavior of asset pipeline when config.assets.digest and config.assets.compile are false and requested asset isn't precompiled.
240 Before the requested asset were compiled anyway ignoring that the config.assets.compile flag is false. *Guillermo Iguaran*
241
242 * CookieJar is now Enumerable. Fixes #2795
243
244 * Fixed AssetNotPrecompiled error raised when rake assets:precompile is compiling certain .erb files. See GH #2763 #2765 #2805 *Guillermo Iguaran*
245
246 * Manifest is correctly placed in assets path when default assets prefix is changed. Fixes #2776 *Guillermo Iguaran*
247
248 * Fixed stylesheet_link_tag and javascript_include_tag to respect additional options passed by the users when debug is on. *Guillermo Iguaran*
249
250
251 ## Rails 3.1.0 (August 30, 2011) ##
252
253 * Param values are `paramified` in controller tests. *David Chelimsky*
254
255 * 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*
256
257 * The submit form helper does not generate an id "object_name_id" anymore. *fbrusatti*
258
259 * Make sure respond_with with :js tries to render a template in all cases *José Valim*
260
261 * json_escape will now return a SafeBuffer string if it receives SafeBuffer string *tenderlove*
262
263 * Make sure escape_js returns SafeBuffer string if it receives SafeBuffer string *Prem Sichanugrist*
264
265 * Fix escape_js to work correctly with the new SafeBuffer restriction *Paul Gallagher*
266
267 * Brought back alternative convention for namespaced models in i18n *thoefer*
268
269 Now the key can be either "namespace.model" or "namespace/model" until further deprecation.
270
271 * It is prohibited to perform a in-place SafeBuffer mutation *tenderlove*
272
273 The old behavior of SafeBuffer allowed you to mutate string in place via
274 method like `sub!`. These methods can add unsafe strings to a safe buffer,
275 and the safe buffer will continue to be marked as safe.
276
277 An example problem would be something like this:
278
279 <%= link_to('hello world', @user).sub!(/hello/, params[:xss]) %>
280
281 In the above example, an untrusted string (`params[:xss]`) is added to the
282 safe buffer returned by `link_to`, and the untrusted content is successfully
283 sent to the client without being escaped. To prevent this from happening
284 `sub!` and other similar methods will now raise an exception when they are called on a safe buffer.
285
286 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:
287
288 <%= link_to('hello world', @user).sub(/hello/, params[:xss]) %>
289
290 The new versions will now ensure that *all* strings returned by these methods on safe buffers are marked unsafe.
291
292 You can read more about this change in http://groups.google.com/group/rubyonrails-security/browse_thread/thread/2e516e7acc96c4fb
293
294 * Warn if we cannot verify CSRF token authenticity *José Valim*
295
296 * Allow AM/PM format in datetime selectors *Aditya Sanghi*
297
298 * Only show dump of regular env methods on exception screen (not all the rack crap) *DHH*
299
300 * auto_link has been removed with no replacement. If you still use auto_link
301 please install the rails_autolink gem:
302 http://github.com/tenderlove/rails_autolink
303
304 *tenderlove*
305
306 * Added streaming support, you can enable it with: *José Valim*
307
308 class PostsController < ActionController::Base
309 stream :only => :index
310 end
311
312 Please read the docs at `ActionController::Streaming` for more information.
313
314 * Added `ActionDispatch::Request.ignore_accept_header` to ignore accept headers and only consider the format given as parameter *José Valim*
315
316 * Created `ActionView::Renderer` and specified an API for `ActionView::Context`, check those objects for more information *José Valim*
317
318 * 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*
319
320 This can be customized by setting `ActionController::Base.wrap_parameters` in `config/initializer/wrap_parameters.rb`
321
322 * RJS has been extracted out to a gem. *fxn*
323
324 * Implicit actions named not_implemented can be rendered. *Santiago Pastorino*
325
326 * Wildcard route will always match the optional format segment by default. *Prem Sichanugrist*
327
328 For example if you have this route:
329
330 match '*pages' => 'pages#show'
331
332 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:
333
334 match '*pages' => 'pages#show', :format => false
335
336 * Added Base.http_basic_authenticate_with to do simple http basic authentication with a single class method call *DHH*
337
338 class PostsController < ApplicationController
339 USER_NAME, PASSWORD = "dhh", "secret"
340
341 before_filter :authenticate, :except => [ :index ]
342
343 def index
344 render :text => "Everyone can see me!"
345 end
346
347 def edit
348 render :text => "I'm only accessible if you know the password"
349 end
350
351 private
352 def authenticate
353 authenticate_or_request_with_http_basic do |user_name, password|
354 user_name == USER_NAME && password == PASSWORD
355 end
356 end
357 end
358
359 ..can now be written as
360
361 class PostsController < ApplicationController
362 http_basic_authenticate_with :name => "dhh", :password => "secret", :except => :index
363
364 def index
365 render :text => "Everyone can see me!"
366 end
367
368 def edit
369 render :text => "I'm only accessible if you know the password"
370 end
371 end
372
373 * 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*
374
375 * Allow FormHelper#form_for to specify the :method as a direct option instead of through the :html hash *DHH*
376
377 form_for(@post, remote: true, method: :delete) instead of form_for(@post, remote: true, html: { method: :delete })
378
379 * 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*
380
381 * 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*
382
383 * URL parameters which return false for to_param now appear in the query string (previously they were removed) *Andrew White*
384
385 * URL parameters which return nil for to_param are now removed from the query string *Andrew White*
386
387 * ActionDispatch::MiddlewareStack now uses composition over inheritance. It is
388 no longer an array which means there may be methods missing that were not tested.
389 * Add an :authenticity_token option to form_tag for custom handling or to omit the token (pass :authenticity_token => false). *Jakub Kuźma, Igor Wiedler*
390
391 * HTML5 button_tag helper. *Rizwan Reza*
392
393 * Template lookup now searches further up in the inheritance chain. *Artemave*
394
395 * Brought back config.action_view.cache_template_loading, which allows to decide whether templates should be cached or not. *Piotr Sarnacki*
396
397 * url_for and named url helpers now accept :subdomain and :domain as options, *Josh Kalderimis*
398
399 * 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*
400
401 * 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*
402
403 * Added a convenience idiom to generate HTML5 data-* attributes in tag helpers from a :data hash of options:
404
405 tag("div", :data => {:name => 'Stephen', :city_state => %w(Chicago IL)})
406 # => <div data-name="Stephen" data-city-state="[&quot;Chicago&quot;,&quot;IL&quot;]" />
407
408 Keys are dasherized. Values are JSON-encoded, except for strings and symbols. *Stephen Celis*
409
410 * Deprecate old template handler API. The new API simply requires a template handler to respond to call. *José Valim*
411
412 * :rhtml and :rxml were finally removed as template handlers. *José Valim*
413
414 * Moved etag responsibility from ActionDispatch::Response to the middleware stack. *José Valim*
415
416 * 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*
417
418 * file_field automatically adds :multipart => true to the enclosing form. *Santiago Pastorino*
419
420 * Renames csrf_meta_tag -> csrf_meta_tags, and aliases csrf_meta_tag for backwards compatibility. *fxn*
421
422 * 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*
423
424
425 ## Rails 3.0.7 (April 18, 2011) ##
426
427 * No changes.
428
429
430 * Rails 3.0.6 (April 5, 2011)
431
432 * Fixed XSS vulnerability in `auto_link`. `auto_link` no longer marks input as
433 html safe. Please make sure that calls to auto_link() are wrapped in a
434 sanitize(), or a raw() depending on the type of input passed to auto_link().
435 For example:
436
437 <%= sanitize(auto_link(some_user_input)) %>
438
439 Thanks to Torben Schulz for reporting this. The fix can be found here:
440 61ee3449674c591747db95f9b3472c5c3bd9e84d
441
442 * 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*
443
444 * Fixes an issue with number_to_human when converting values which are less than 1 but greater than -1 *Josh Kalderimis*
445
446 * 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*
447
448 * URL parameters which return nil for to_param are now removed from the query string *Andrew White*
449
450 * Don't allow i18n to change the minor version, version now set to ~> 0.5.0 *Santiago Pastorino*
451
452 * Make TranslationHelper#translate use the :rescue_format option in I18n 0.5.0 *Sven Fuchs*
453
454 * Fix regression: javascript_include_tag shouldn't raise if you register an expansion key with nil or [] value *Santiago Pastorino*
455
456 * 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*

468
469 ## Rails 3.0.3 (November 16, 2010) ##
470
471 * When ActiveRecord::Base objects are sent to predicate methods, the id of the object should be sent to ARel, not the ActiveRecord::Base object.
472
473 * :constraints routing should only do sanity checks against regular expressions. String arguments are OK.
474
475
476 ## Rails 3.0.2 (November 15, 2010) ##
477
478 * The helper number_to_currency accepts a new :negative_format option to be able to configure how to render negative amounts. *Don Wilson*

484
485
486 ## Rails 3.0.0 (August 29, 2010) ##
487

489
490 * 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*
491
492 * 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*
493
494 * Support routing constraints in functional tests. *Andrew White*
495
496 * Add a header that tells Internet Explorer (all versions) to use the best available standards support. *Yehuda Katz*
497
498 * Allow stylesheet/javascript extensions to be changed through railties. *Josh Kalderimis*
499
500 * link_to, button_to, and tag/tag_options now rely on html_escape instead of escape_once. *fxn*
501
502 * url_for returns always unescaped strings, and the :escape option is gone. *fxn*
503
504 * Added accept-charset parameter and _snowman hidden field to force the contents
505 of Rails POSTed forms to be in UTF-8 *Yehuda Katz*
506
507 * Upgrade to Rack 1.2.1 *Jeremy Kemper*
508

520 shallow do
521 resources :comments
522 end
523 end
524
525 You can now use comment_path for /comments/1 instead of post_comment_path for /posts/1/comments/1.
526
527 * 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*
528
529 * Removed textilize, textilize_without_paragraph and markdown helpers. *Santiago Pastorino*
530
531 * Remove middleware laziness *José Valim*

533 * Make session stores rely on request.cookie_jar and change set_session semantics to return the cookie value instead of a boolean. *José Valim*
534
535 * OAuth 2: HTTP Token Authorization support to complement Basic and Digest Authorization. *Rick Olson*
536
537 * Fixed inconsistencies in form builder and view helpers #4432 *Neeraj Singh*
538
539 * 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*
540
541 * Renamed the field error CSS class from fieldWithErrors to field_with_errors for consistency. *Jeremy Kemper*
542
543 * Add support for shorthand routes like /projects/status(.:format) #4423 *Diego Carrion*
544
545 * 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*
546
547 * 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*
548
549 * Removed verify method in controllers. *JV*
550 It's now available as a plugin at http://github.com/rails/verification
551
552 * Removed input, form, error_messages_for and error_message_on from views. *JV*
553 It's now available as a plugin at http://github.com/rails/dynamic_form
554
555 * Routes can be scoped by controller module. *Jeremy Kemper*
556
557 # /session => Auth::SessionsController
558 scope :module => 'auth' do
559 resource :session
560 end
561
562 * Added #favicon_link_tag, it uses #image_path so in particular the favicon gets an asset ID *fxn*
563
564 * Fixed that default locale templates should be used if the current locale template is missing *DHH*
565
566 * Added all the new HTML5 form types as individual form tag methods (search, url, number, etc) #3646 *Stephen Celis*
567
568 * Changed the object used in routing constraints to be an instance of
569 ActionDispatch::Request rather than Rack::Request *YK*
570
571 * Changed ActionDispatch::Request#method to return a String, to be compatible
572 with Rack::Request. Added ActionDispatch::Request#method_symbol to
573 return a symbol form of the request method. *YK*
574
575 * Changed ActionDispatch::Request#method to return the original
576 method and #request_method to return the overridden method in the
577 case of methodoverride being used (this means that #method returns
578 "HEAD" and #request_method returns "GET" in HEAD requests). This
579 is for compatibility with Rack::Request *YK*
580
581 * #concat is now deprecated in favor of using <%= %> helpers *YK*
582
583 * Block helpers now return Strings, so you can use <%= form_for @foo do |f| %>.
584 <% form_for do |f| %> still works with deprecation notices *YK*
585
586 * Add a new #mount method on the router that does not anchor the PATH_INFO
587 at the end *YK & CL*
588
589 * Create a new LookupContext object that is responsible for performantly
590 finding a template for a given pattern *JV*
591
592 * Removed relative_url_for in favor of respecting SCRIPT_NAME *YK & CL*
593
594 * Changed file streaming to use Rack::Sendfile middleware *YK*
595
596 * ActionDispatch::Request#content_type returns a String to be compatible with
597 Rack::Request. Use #content_mime_type for the Mime::Type instance *YK*
598
599 * Updated Prototype to 1.6.1 and Scriptaculous to 1.8.3 *ML*
600
601 * Change the preferred way that URL helpers are included into a class*YK & CL*
602
603 # for all helpers including named routes
604 include Rails.application.router.url_helpers
605
606 # for just url_for
607 include Rails.application.router.url_for
608
609 * Fixed that PrototypeHelper#update_page should return html_safe *DHH*
610
611 * Fixed that much of DateHelper wouldn't return html_safe? strings *DHH*
612
613 * Fixed that fragment caching should return a cache hit as html_safe (or it would all just get escaped) *DHH*
614
615 * Added that ActionController::Base now does helper :all instead of relying on the default ApplicationController in Rails to do it *DHH*
616
617 * Added ActionDispatch::Request#authorization to access the http authentication header regardless of its proxy hiding *DHH*
618
619 * Added :alert, :notice, and :flash as options to ActionController::Base#redirect_to that'll automatically set the proper flash before the redirection [DHH]. Examples:
620
621 flash[:notice] = 'Post was created'
622 redirect_to(@post)
623
624 ...becomes:
625
626 redirect_to(@post, :notice => 'Post was created')
627
628 * 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*
629
630
631 * Introduce grouped_collection_select helper. #1249 *Dan Codeape, Erik Ostrom*
632
633 * Make sure javascript_include_tag/stylesheet_link_tag does not append ".js" or ".css" onto external urls. #1664 *Matthew Rudy Jacobs*
634
635 * Ruby 1.9: fix Content-Length for multibyte send_data streaming. #2661 *Sava Chankov*
636
637 * Ruby 1.9: ERB template encoding using a magic comment at the top of the file. *Jeremy Kemper*
638 <%# encoding: utf-8 %>
639
640 * Change integration test helpers to accept Rack environment instead of just HTTP Headers *Pratik Naik*
641
642 Before : get '/path', {}, 'Accept' => 'text/javascript'
643 After : get '/path', {}, 'HTTP_ACCEPT' => 'text/javascript'
644
645 * Instead of checking Rails.env.test? in Failsafe middleware, check env["rails.raise_exceptions"] *Bryan Helmkamp*
646
647 * Fixed that TestResponse.cookies was returning cookies unescaped #1867 *Doug McInnes*
648
649
650 ## 2.3.2 Final (March 15, 2009) ##
651
652 * Fixed that redirection would just log the options, not the final url (which lead to "Redirected to #<Post:0x23150b8>") *DHH*
653
654 * Don't check authenticity tokens for any AJAX requests *Ross Kaffenberger/Bryan Helmkamp*
655
656 * Added ability to pass in :public => true to fresh_when, stale?, and expires_in to make the request proxy cachable #2095 *Gregg Pollack*
657
658 * Fixed that passing a custom form builder would be forwarded to nested fields_for calls #2023 *Eloy Duran/Nate Wiger*
659
660 * Form option helpers now support disabled option tags and the use of lambdas for selecting/disabling option tags from collections #837 *Tekin*
661
662 * 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*
663
664 * Fix a syntax error in current_page?() that was prevent matches against URL's with multiple query parameters #1385, #1868 *chris finne/Andrew White*
665
666 * Added localized rescue template when I18n.locale is set (ex: public/404.da.html) #1835 *José Valim*
667
668 * Make the form_for and fields_for helpers support the new Active Record nested update options. #1202 *Eloy Duran*
669
670 <% form_for @person do |person_form| %>
671 ...
672 <% person_form.fields_for :projects do |project_fields| %>
673 <% if project_fields.object.active? %>
674 Name: <%= project_fields.text_field :name %>
675 <% end %>
676 <% end %>
677 <% end %>
678
679
680 * Added grouped_options_for_select helper method for wrapping option tags in optgroups. #977 *Jon Crawford*
681
682 * Implement HTTP Digest authentication. #1230 [Gregg Kellogg, Pratik Naik] Example :
683
684 class DummyDigestController < ActionController::Base
685 USERS = { "lifo" => 'world' }
686
687 before_filter :authenticate
688
689 def index
690 render :text => "Hello Secret"
691 end
692
693 private
694
695 def authenticate
696 authenticate_or_request_with_http_digest("Super Secret") do |username|
697 # Return the user's password
698 USERS[username]
699 end
700 end
701 end
702
703 * Improved i18n support for the number_to_human_size helper. Changes the storage_units translation data; update your translations accordingly. #1634 *Yaroslav Markin*
704 storage_units:
705 # %u is the storage unit, %n is the number (default: 2 MB)
706 format: "%n %u"
707 units:
708 byte:
709 one: "Byte"
710 other: "Bytes"
711 kb: "KB"
712 mb: "MB"
713 gb: "GB"
714 tb: "TB"
715
716 * Added :silence option to BenchmarkHelper#benchmark and turned log_level into a hash parameter and deprecated the old use *DHH*
717
718 * 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*
719
720 * Make ActionController#render(string) work as a shortcut for render :file/:template/:action => string. [#1435] [Pratik Naik] Examples:
721
722 \# Instead of render(:action => 'other_action')
723 render('other_action') # argument has no '/'
724 render(:other_action)
725
726 \# Instead of render(:template => 'controller/action')
727 render('controller/action') # argument must not begin with a '/', but contain a '/'
728
729 \# Instead of render(:file => '/Users/lifo/home.html.erb')
730 render('/Users/lifo/home.html.erb') # argument must begin with a '/'
731
732 * Add :prompt option to date/time select helpers. #561 *Sam Oliver*
733
734 * Fixed that send_file shouldn't set an etag #1578 *Hongli Lai*
735
736 * Allow users to opt out of the spoofing checks in Request#remote_ip. Useful for sites whose traffic regularly triggers false positives. *Darren Boyd*
737
738 * Deprecated formatted_polymorphic_url. *Jeremy Kemper*
739
740 * 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*
741
742 * 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*
743
744 * Dropped formatted_* routes in favor of just passing in :format as an option. This cuts resource routes generation in half #1359 *aaronbatalion*
745
746 * 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*
747
748 * Allow helpers directory to be overridden via ActionController::Base.helpers_dir #1424 *Sam Pohlenz*
749
750 * Remove deprecated ActionController::Base#assign_default_content_type_and_charset
751
752 * Changed the default of ActionView#render to assume partials instead of files when not given an options hash [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
753
754 # Instead of <%= render :partial => "account" %>
755 <%= render "account" %>
756
757 # Instead of <%= render :partial => "account", :locals => { :account => @buyer } %>
758 <%= render "account", :account => @buyer %>
759
760 # @account is an Account instance, so it uses the RecordIdentifier to replace
761 # <%= render :partial => "accounts/account", :locals => { :account => @account } %>
762 <%= render(@account) %>
763
764 # @posts is an array of Post instances, so it uses the RecordIdentifier to replace
765 # <%= render :partial => "posts/post", :collection => @posts %>
766 <%= render(@posts) %>
767
768 * Remove deprecated render_component. Please use the plugin from http://github.com/rails/render_component/tree/master *Pratik Naik*
769
770 * 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*
771
772
773 ## 2.2.2 (November 21st, 2008) ##
774
775 * I18n: translate number_to_human_size. Add storage_units: [Bytes, KB, MB, GB, TB] to your translations. #1448 *Yaroslav Markin*
776
777 * Restore backwards compatible functionality for setting relative_url_root. Include deprecation
778
779 * Switched the CSRF module to use the request content type to decide if the request is forgeable. #1145 *Jeff Cohen*
780
781 * 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*
782
783 map.resources :products, :only => :show do |product|
784 product.resources :images, :except => :destroy
785 end
786
787 * Added render :js for people who want to render inline JavaScript replies without using RJS *David Heinemeier Hansson*
788
789 * Fixed that polymorphic_url should compact given array #1317 *hiroshi*
790
791 * Fixed the sanitize helper to avoid double escaping already properly escaped entities #683 *antonmos/Ryan McGeary*
792
793 * Fixed that FormTagHelper generated illegal html if name contained square brackets #1238 *Vladimir Dobriakov*
794
795 * 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*
796
797 * Simplified the logging format for parameters (don't include controller, action, and format as duplicates) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
798
799 * Remove the logging of the Session ID when the session store is CookieStore *David Heinemeier Hansson*
800
801 * Fixed regex in redirect_to to fully support URI schemes #1247 *Seth Fitzsimmons*
802
803 * Fixed bug with asset timestamping when using relative_url_root #1265 *Joe Goldwasser*
804
805
806 ## 2.2.0 RC1 (October 24th, 2008) ##
807
808 * Fix incorrect closing CDATA delimiter and that HTML::Node.parse would blow up on unclosed CDATA sections *packagethief*
809
810 * Added stale? and fresh_when methods to provide a layer of abstraction above request.fresh? and friends [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
811
812 class ArticlesController < ApplicationController
813 def show_with_respond_to_block
814 @article = Article.find(params[:id])
815
816
817 # If the request sends headers that differs from the options provided to stale?, then
818 # the request is indeed stale and the respond_to block is triggered (and the options
819 # to the stale? call is set on the response).
820 #
821 # If the request headers match, then the request is fresh and the respond_to block is
822 # not triggered. Instead the default render will occur, which will check the last-modified
823 # and etag headers and conclude that it only needs to send a "304 Not Modified" instead
824 # of rendering the template.
825 if stale?(:last_modified => @article.published_at.utc, :etag => @article)
826 respond_to do |wants|
827 # normal response processing
828 end
829 end
830 end
831
832 def show_with_implied_render
833 @article = Article.find(params[:id])
834
835 # Sets the response headers and checks them against the request, if the request is stale
836 # (i.e. no match of either etag or last-modified), then the default render of the template happens.
837 # If the request is fresh, then the default render will return a "304 Not Modified"
838 # instead of rendering the template.
839 fresh_when(:last_modified => @article.published_at.utc, :etag => @article)
840 end
841 end
842
843
844 * Added inline builder yield to atom_feed_helper tags where appropriate [Sam Ruby]. Example:
845
846 entry.summary :type => 'xhtml' do |xhtml|
847 xhtml.p pluralize(order.line_items.count, "line item")
848 xhtml.p "Shipped to #{order.address}"
849 xhtml.p "Paid by #{order.pay_type}"
850 end
851
852 * Make PrototypeHelper#submit_to_remote a wrapper around PrototypeHelper#button_to_remote. *Tarmo Tänav*
853
854 * Set HttpOnly for the cookie session store's cookie. #1046
855
856 * Added FormTagHelper#image_submit_tag confirm option #784 *Alastair Brunton*
857
858 * Fixed FormTagHelper#submit_tag with :disable_with option wouldn't submit the button's value when was clicked #633 *Jose Fernandez*
859
860 * Stopped logging template compiles as it only clogs up the log *David Heinemeier Hansson*
861
862 * Changed the X-Runtime header to report in milliseconds *David Heinemeier Hansson*
863
864 * Changed BenchmarkHelper#benchmark to report in milliseconds *David Heinemeier Hansson*
865
866 * Changed logging format to be millisecond based and skip misleading stats [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Went from:
867
868 Completed in 0.10000 (4 reqs/sec) | Rendering: 0.04000 (40%) | DB: 0.00400 (4%) | 200 OK [http://example.com]
869
870 ...to:
871
872 Completed in 100ms (View: 40, DB: 4) | 200 OK [http://example.com]
873
874 * Add support for shallow nesting of routes. #838 *S. Brent Faulkner*
875
876 Example :
877
878 map.resources :users, :shallow => true do |user|
879 user.resources :posts
880 end
881
882 - GET /users/1/posts (maps to PostsController#index action as usual)
883 named route "user_posts" is added as usual.
884
885 - GET /posts/2 (maps to PostsController#show action as if it were not nested)
886 Additionally, named route "post" is added too.
887
888 * Added button_to_remote helper. #3641 *Donald Piret, Tarmo Tänav*
889
890 * Deprecate render_component. Please use render_component plugin from http://github.com/rails/render_component/tree/master *Pratik Naik*
891
892 * Routes may be restricted to lists of HTTP methods instead of a single method or :any. #407 *Brennan Dunn, Gaius Centus Novus*
893 map.resource :posts, :collection => { :search => [:get, :post] }
894 map.session 'session', :requirements => { :method => [:get, :post, :delete] }
895
896 * Deprecated implicit local assignments when rendering partials *Josh Peek*
897
898 * Introduce current_cycle helper method to return the current value without bumping the cycle. #417 *Ken Collins*
899
900 * Allow polymorphic_url helper to take url options. #880 *Tarmo Tänav*
901
902 * Switched integration test runner to use Rack processor instead of CGI *Josh Peek*
903
904 * Made AbstractRequest.if_modified_sense return nil if the header could not be parsed *Jamis Buck*
905
906 * Added back ActionController::Base.allow_concurrency flag *Josh Peek*
907
908 * 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*
909
910 * Update Prototype to 1.6.0.2 #599 *Patrick Joyce*
911
912 * Conditional GET utility methods. *Jeremy Kemper*
913 response.last_modified = @post.updated_at
914 response.etag = [:admin, @post, current_user]
915
916 if request.fresh?(response)
917 head :not_modified
918 else
919 # render ...
920 end
921
922 * All 2xx requests are considered successful *Josh Peek*
923
924 * 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*
925
926 * Removed config.action_view.cache_template_loading, use config.cache_classes instead *Josh Peek*
927
928 * Get buffer for fragment cache from template's @output_buffer *Josh Peek*
929
930 * 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*
931
932 * Refactor template preloading. New abstractions include Renderable mixins and a refactored Template class *Josh Peek*
933
934 * Changed ActionView::TemplateHandler#render API method signature to render(template, local_assigns = {}) *Josh Peek*
935
936 * 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*
937
938 * Add :recursive option to javascript_include_tag and stylesheet_link_tag to be used along with :all. #480 *Damian Janowski*
939
940 * Allow users to disable the use of the Accept header *Michael Koziarski*
941
942 The accept header is poorly implemented by browsers and causes strange
943 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.
944 To disable the header you need to set:
945 config.action_controller.use_accept_header = false
946 * 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*
947
948 * Deprecated TemplateHandler line offset *Josh Peek*
949
950 * Allow caches_action to accept cache store options. #416. [José Valim]. Example:
951
952 caches_action :index, :redirected, :if => Proc.new { |c| !c.request.format.json? }, :expires_in => 1.hour
953
954 * Remove define_javascript_functions, javascript_include_tag and friends are far superior. *Michael Koziarski*
955
956 * Deprecate :use_full_path render option. The supplying the option no longer has an effect *Josh Peek*
957
958 * Add :as option to render a collection of partials with a custom local variable name. #509 *Simon Jefford, Pratik Naik*
959
960 render :partial => 'other_people', :collection => @people, :as => :person
961
962 This will let you access objects of @people as 'person' local variable inside 'other_people' partial template.
963
964 * time_zone_select: support for regexp matching of priority zones. Resolves #195 *Ernie Miller*
965
966 * Made ActionView::Base#render_file private *Josh Peek*
967
968 * 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*
969
970 This could cause some erroneous test failures if you were redirecting between controllers
971 in different namespaces and wrote your assertions relative to the root of the application.
972
973 * Remove follow_redirect from controller functional tests.
974
975 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=>...
976 * Fix polymorphic_url with singleton resources. #461 *Tammer Saleh*
977
978 * Replaced TemplateFinder abstraction with ViewLoadPaths *Josh Peek*
979
980 * Added block-call style to link_to [Sam Stephenson/David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
981
982 <% link_to(@profile) do %>
983 <strong><%= @profile.name %></strong> -- <span>Check it out!!</span>
984 <% end %>
985
986 * Performance: integration test benchmarking and profiling. *Jeremy Kemper*
987
988 * Make caching more aware of mime types. Ensure request format is not considered while expiring cache. *Jonathan del Strother*
989
990 * Drop ActionController::Base.allow_concurrency flag *Josh Peek*
991
992 * More efficient concat and capture helpers. Remove ActionView::Base.erb_variable. *Jeremy Kemper*
993
994 * Added page.reload functionality. Resolves #277. *Sean Huber*
995
996 * 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*
997
998 * Allow caches_action to accept a layout option *José Valim*
999
1000 * Added Rack processor *Ezra Zygmuntowicz, Josh Peek*
1001
1002

1019
1020 * Reduce number of instance variables being copied from controller to view. *Pratik Naik*
1021
1022 * select_datetime and select_time default to Time.zone.now when config.time_zone is set *Geoff Buesing*

1042 end
1043
1044 * add json_escape ERB util to escape html entities in json strings that are output in HTML pages. *Rick Olson*
1045
1046 * Provide a helper proxy to access helper methods from outside views. Closes #10839 *Josh Peek*
1047 e.g. ApplicationController.helpers.simple_format(text)
1048
1049 * Improve documentation. *Xavier Noria, leethal, jerome*

This makes it possible for JS requests to automatically render action.js.rjs files without an explicit respond_to block *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1108
1109 * Tests for distance_of_time_in_words with TimeWithZone instances. Closes #10914 *Ernesto Jimenez*

1167 * All fragment cache keys are now by default prefixed with the "views/" namespace *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1168

1341
1342 * Memcached sessions: add session data on initialization; don't silently discard exceptions; add unit tests. #9823 *kamk*
1343
1344 * error_messages_for also takes :message and :header_message options which defaults to the old "There were problems with the following fields:" and "<count> errors prohibited this <object_name> from being saved". #8270 *rmm5t, zach-inglis-lt3*
1345
1346 * Make sure that custom inflections are picked up by map.resources. #9815 *Mislav Marohnić*
1347
1348 * Changed SanitizeHelper#sanitize to only allow the custom attributes and tags when specified in the call *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1349
1350 * Extracted sanitization methods from TextHelper to SanitizeHelper *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1351
1352 * rescue_from accepts :with => lambda { |exception| ... } or a normal block. #9827 *Pratik Naik*
1353
1354 * Add :status to redirect_to allowing users to choose their own response code without manually setting headers. #8297 *Coda Hale, chasgrundy*
1355
1356 * Add link_to :back which uses your referrer with a fallback to a javascript link. #7366 *eventualbuddha, Tarmo Tänav*
1357

1365
1366 config.action_controller.optimise_named_routes = false
1367
1368 * ActionController::Routing::DynamicSegment#interpolation_chunk should call #to_s on all values before calling URI.escape. *Rick Olson*
1369
1370 * Only accept session ids from cookies, prevents session fixation attacks. *bradediger*
1371
1372
1373 ## 2.0.0 Preview Release (September 29th, 2007) Includes duplicates of changes from 1.12.2 - 1.13.3 ##
1374
1375 * Fixed that render template did not honor exempt_from_layout #9698 *pezra*
1376
1377 * Better error messages if you leave out the :secret option for request forgery protection. Closes #9670 *Rick Olson*
1378
1379 * Allow ability to disable request forgery protection, disable it in test mode by default. Closes #9693 *Pratik Naik*
1380
1381 * Avoid calling is_missing on LoadErrors. Closes #7460. *ntalbott*
1382
1383 * Move Railties' Dispatcher to ActionController::Dispatcher, introduce before_ and after_dispatch callbacks, and warm up to non-CGI requests. *Jeremy Kemper*
1384
1385 * The tag helper may bypass escaping. *Jeremy Kemper*
1386
1387 * Cache asset ids. *Jeremy Kemper*
1388
1389 * Optimized named routes respect AbstractRequest.relative_url_root. #9612 *Daniel Morrison, Jeremy Kemper*
1390
1391 * Introduce ActionController::Base.rescue_from to declare exception-handling methods. Cleaner style than the case-heavy rescue_action_in_public. #9449 *Norbert Crombach*
1392
1393 * Rename some RequestForgeryProtection methods. The class method is now #protect_from_forgery, and the default parameter is now 'authenticity_token'. *Rick Olson*
1394
1395 * Merge csrf_killer plugin into rails. Adds RequestForgeryProtection model that verifies session-specific _tokens for non-GET requests. *Rick Olson*
1396
1397 * Secure #sanitize, #strip_tags, and #strip_links helpers against xss attacks. Closes #8877. *Rick Olson, Pratik Naik, Jacques Distler*
1398
1399 This merges and renames the popular white_list helper (along with some css sanitizing from Jacques Distler version of the same plugin).
1400 Also applied updated versions of #strip_tags and #strip_links from #8877.
1401
1402 * Remove use of & logic operator. Closes #8114. *watson*
1403
1404 * Fixed JavaScriptHelper#escape_javascript to also escape closing tags #8023 *Ruy Asan*
1405
1406 * Fixed TextHelper#word_wrap for multiline strings with extra carrier returns #8663 *seth*
1407
1408 * Fixed that setting the :host option in url_for would automatically turn off :only_path (since :host would otherwise not be shown) #9586 *Bounga*
1409
1410 * Added FormHelper#label. #8641, #9850 *jcoglan, Jarkko Laine*
1411
1412 * Added AtomFeedHelper (slightly improved from the atom_feed_helper plugin) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1413
1414 * Prevent errors when generating routes for uncountable resources, (i.e. sheep where plural == singluar). map.resources :sheep now creates sheep_index_url for the collection and sheep_url for the specific item. *Michael Koziarski*
1415
1416 * 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*
1417
1418 * Don't warn when a path segment precedes a required segment. Closes #9615. *Nicholas Seckar*
1419
1420 * Fixed CaptureHelper#content_for to work with the optional content parameter instead of just the block #9434 [sandofsky/wildchild].
1421
1422 * Added Mime::Type.register_alias for dealing with different formats using the same mime type [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1423
1424 class PostsController < ApplicationController
1425 before_filter :adjust_format_for_iphone
1426
1427 def index
1428 @posts = Post.find(:all)
1429
1430 respond_to do |format|
1431 format.html # => renders index.html.erb and uses "text/html" as the content type
1432 format.iphone # => renders index.iphone.erb and uses "text/html" as the content type
1433 end
1434 end
1435
1436
1437 private
1438 def adjust_format_for_iphone
1439 if request.env["HTTP_USER_AGENT"] && request.env["HTTP_USER_AGENT"][/iPhone/]
1440 request.format = :iphone
1441 end
1442 end
1443 end
1444
1445 * Added that render :json will automatically call .to_json unless it's being passed a string [David Heinemeier Hansson].
1446
1447 * Autolink behaves well with emails embedded in URLs. #7313 *Jeremy McAnally, Tarmo Tänav*
1448
1449 * Fixed that default layouts did not take the format into account #9564 *Pratik Naik*
1450
1451 * Fixed optimized route segment escaping. #9562 *wildchild, Jeremy Kemper*
1452
1453 * Added block acceptance to JavaScriptHelper#javascript_tag. #7527 *Bob Silva, Tarmo Tänav, rmm5t*
1454
1455 * root_path returns '/' not ''. #9563 *Pratik Naik*
1456
1457 * Fixed that setting request.format should also affect respond_to blocks *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1458
1459 * Add option to force binary mode on tempfile used for fixture_file_upload. #6380 *Jonathan Viney*
1460
1461 * Fixed that resource namespaces wouldn't stick to all nested resources #9399 *pixeltrix*
1462
1463 * Moved ActionController::Macros::AutoComplete into the auto_complete plugin on the official Rails svn. #9512 *Pratik Naik*
1464
1465 * Moved ActionController::Macros::InPlaceEditing into the in_place_editor plugin on the official Rails svn. #9513 *Pratik Naik*
1466
1467 * Removed deprecated form of calling xml_http_request/xhr without the first argument being the http verb *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1468
1469 * Removed deprecated methods [David Heinemeier Hansson]:
1470
1471 - ActionController::Base#keep_flash (use flash.keep instead)
1472 - ActionController::Base#expire_matched_fragments (just call expire_fragment with a regular expression)
1473 - ActionController::Base.template_root/= methods (use ActionController#Base.view_paths/= instead)
1474 - ActionController::Base.cookie (use ActionController#Base.cookies[]= instead)
1475
1476 * Removed the deprecated behavior of appending ".png" to image_tag/image_path calls without an existing extension *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1477
1478 * 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*
1479
1480 * Optimise named route generation when using positional arguments. *Michael Koziarski*
1481
1482 This change delivers significant performance benefits for the most
1483 common usage scenarios for modern rails applications by avoiding the
1484 costly trip through url_for. Initial benchmarks indicate this is
1485 between 6 and 20 times as fast.
1486
1487 * Explicitly require active_record/query_cache before using it. *Jeremy Kemper*
1488
1489 * Fix layout overriding response status. #9476 *lotswholetime*
1490
1491 * Add field_set_tag for generating field_sets, closes #9477. *Damian Janowski*
1492
1493 * Allow additional parameters to be passed to named route helpers when using positional arguments. Closes #8930 *Ian White*
1494
1495 * Make render :partial work with a :collection of Hashes, previously this wasn't possible due to backwards compatibility restrictions. *Pratik Naik*
1496
1497 * request.host works with IPv6 addresses. #9458 *yuya*
1498
1499 * Fix bug where action caching sets the content type to the ActionCachePath object. Closes #9282 *mindforge*
1500
1501 * Find layouts even if they're not in the first view_paths directory. Closes #9258 *caio*
1502
1503 * Major improvement to the documentation for the options / select form helpers. Closes #9038 *Chris Kampmeier, jardeon, wesg*
1504
1505 * Fix number_to_human_size when using different precisions. Closes #7536. *RichardStrand, mpalmer*
1506
1507 * Added partial layouts (see example in action_view/lib/partials.rb) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1508
1509 * Allow you to set custom :conditions on resource routes. *Rick Olson*
1510
1511 * Fixed that file.content_type for uploaded files would include a trailing \r #9053 *Brad Greenlee*
1512
1513 * url_for now accepts a series of symbols representing the namespace of the record *Josh Knowles*
1514
1515 * Make :trailing_slash work with query parameters for url_for. Closes #4004 *nov*
1516
1517 * Make sure missing template exceptions actually say which template they were looking for. Closes #8683 *dasil003*
1518
1519 * Fix errors with around_filters which do not yield, restore 1.1 behaviour with after filters. Closes #8891 *Stefan Kaes*
1520
1521 After filters will *no longer* be run if an around_filter fails to yield, users relying on
1522 this behaviour are advised to put the code in question after a yield statement in an around filter.
1523
1524
1525 * Allow you to delete cookies with options. Closes #3685 *Josh Peek, Chris Wanstrath*
1526
1527 * Allow you to render views with periods in the name. Closes #8076 *Norbert Crombach*
1528
1529 render :partial => 'show.html.erb'
1530
1531 * Improve capture helper documentation. #8796 *Chris Kampmeier*
1532
1533 * 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*
1534
1535 * Allow sweepers to be created solely for expiring after controller actions, not model changes *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1536
1537 * Added assigns method to ActionController::Caching::Sweeper to easily access instance variables on the controller *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1538
1539 * Give the legacy X-POST_DATA_FORMAT header greater precedence during params parsing for backward compatibility. *Jeremy Kemper*
1540
1541 * Fixed that link_to with an href of # when using :method will not allow for click-through without JavaScript #7037 *Steven Bristol, Josh Peek*
1542
1543 * Fixed that radio_button_tag should generate unique ids #3353 *Bob Silva, Rebecca, Josh Peek*
1544
1545 * Fixed that HTTP authentication should work if the header is called REDIRECT_X_HTTP_AUTHORIZATION as well #6754 *Mislav Marohnić*
1546
1547 * Don't mistakenly interpret the request uri as the query string. #8731 *Pratik Naik, Jeremy Kemper*
1548
1549 * 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*
1550
1551 * Tolerate missing content type on multipart file uploads. Fix for Safari 3. *Jeremy Kemper*
1552
1553 * Deprecation: remove pagination. Install the classic_pagination plugin for forward compatibility, or move to the superior will_paginate plugin. #8157 *Josh Peek*
1554
1555 * Action caching is limited to GET requests returning 200 OK status. #3335 *tom@craz8.com, halfbyte, Dan Kubb, Josh Peek*
1556
1557 * Improve Text Helper test coverage. #7274 *Rob Sanheim, Josh Peek*
1558
1559 * Improve helper test coverage. #7208, #7212, #7215, #7233, #7234, #7235, #7236, #7237, #7238, #7241, #7243, #7244 *Rich Collins, Josh Peek*
1560
1561 * Improve UrlRewriter tests. #7207 *Rich Collins*
1562
1563 * 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*
1564
1565 * Assume html format when rendering partials in RJS. #8076 *Rick Olson*
1566
1567 * Don't double-escape url_for in views. #8144 *Rich Collins, Josh Peek*
1568
1569 * Allow JSON-style values for the :with option of observe_field. Closes #8557 *kommen*
1570
1571 * Remove RAILS_ROOT from backtrace paths. #8540 *Tim Pope*
1572
1573 * Routing: map.resource :logo routes to LogosController so the controller may be reused for multiple nestings or namespaces. *Jeremy Kemper*
1574
1575 * render :partial recognizes Active Record associations as Arrays. #8538 *Kamal Fariz Mahyuddin*
1576
1577 * Routing: drop semicolon and comma as route separators. *Jeremy Kemper*
1578
1579 * request.remote_ip understands X-Forwarded-For addresses with nonstandard whitespace. #7386 *moses*
1580
1581 * Don't prepare response when rendering a component. #8493 *jsierles*
1582
1583 * Reduce file stat calls when checking for template changes. #7736 *alex*
1584
1585 * Added custom path cache_page/expire_page parameters in addition to the options hashes [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1586
1587 def index
1588 caches_page(response.body, "/index.html")
1589 end
1590
1591 * Action Caching speedup. #8231 *Stefan Kaes*
1592
1593 * Wordsmith resources documentation. #8484 *marclove*
1594
1595 * Fix syntax error in code example for routing documentation. #8377. *Norbert Crombach*

1598
1599 * Add support for assert_select_rjs with :show and :hide. #7780 *dchelimsky*
1600
1601 * Make assert_select's failure messages clearer about what failed. #7779 *dchelimsky*
1602
1603 * Introduce a default respond_to block for custom types. #8174 *Josh Peek*
1604
1605 * auto_complete_field takes a :method option so you can GET or POST. #8120 *zapnap*
1606
1607 * Added option to suppress :size when using :maxlength for FormTagHelper#text_field #3112 *Tim Pope*
1608
1609 * catch possible WSOD when trying to render a missing partial. Closes #8454 *Jonathan del Strother*
1610
1611 * Rewind request body after reading it, if possible. #8438 *s450r1*
1612
1613 * Resource namespaces are inherited by their has_many subresources. #8280 *marclove, Geoff Garside*
1614
1615 * Fix filtered parameter logging with nil parameter values. #8422 *choonkeat*
1616
1617 * 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*
1618
1619 * Document caches_action. #5419 *Jarkko Laine*
1620
1621 * Update to Prototype 1.5.1. *Sam Stephenson*
1622
1623 * Allow routes to be decalred under namespaces [Tobias Lütke]:
1624
1625 map.namespace :admin do |admin|
1626 admin.root :controller => "products"
1627 admin.feed 'feed.xml', :controller => 'products', :action => 'feed', :format => 'xml'
1628 end
1629
1630 * Update to script.aculo.us 1.7.1_beta3. *Thomas Fuchs*
1631
1632 * observe_form always sends the serialized form. #5271 *Manfred Stienstra, normelton@gmail.com*
1633
1634 * Parse url-encoded and multipart requests ourselves instead of delegating to CGI. *Jeremy Kemper*
1635
1636 * select :include_blank option can be set to a string instead of true, which just uses an empty string. #7664 *Wizard*
1637
1638 * Added url_for usage on render :location, which allows for record identification [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1639
1640 render :xml => person, :status => :created, :location => person
1641
1642 ...expands the location to person_url(person).
1643
1644 * 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*
1645
1646 * Add some performance enhancements to ActionView.
1647
1648 * Cache base_paths in @@cached_base_paths
1649 * Cache template extensions in @@cached_template_extension
1650 * Remove unnecessary rescues
1651
1652 * Assume that rendered partials go by the HTML format by default
1653
1654 def my_partial
1655 render :update do |page|
1656 # in this order
1657 # _foo.html.erb
1658 # _foo.erb
1659 # _foo.rhtml
1660 page.replace :foo, :partial => 'foo'
1661 end
1662 end
1663
1664 * Added record identifications to FormHelper#form_for and PrototypeHelper#remote_form_for [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
1665
1666 <% form_for(@post) do |f| %>
1667 ...
1668 <% end %>
1669
1670 This will expand to be the same as:
1671
1672 <% form_for :post, @post, :url => post_path(@post), :html => { :method => :put, :class => "edit_post", :id => "edit_post_45" } do |f| %>
1673 ...
1674 <% end %>
1675
1676 And for new records:
1677
1678 <% form_for(Post.new) do |f| %>
1679 ...
1680 <% end %>
1681
1682 This will expand to be the same as:
1683
1684 <% form_for :post, @post, :url => posts_path, :html => { :class => "new_post", :id => "new_post" } do |f| %>
1685 ...
1686 <% end %>
1687
1688 * Rationalize route path escaping according to RFC 2396 section 3.3. #7544, #8307. *Jeremy Kemper, Chris Roos, begemot, jugend*
1689
1690 * Added record identification with polymorphic routes for ActionController::Base#url_for and ActionView::Base#url_for [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
1691
1692 redirect_to(post) # => redirect_to(posts_url(post)) => Location: http://example.com/posts/1
1693 link_to(post.title, post) # => link_to(post.title, posts_url(post)) => <a href="/posts/1">Hello world</a>
1694
1695 Any method that calls url_for on its parameters will automatically benefit from this.
1696
1697 * Removed deprecated parameters_for_method_reference concept (legacy from before named routes) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1698
1699 * Add ActionController::Routing::Helpers, a module to contain common URL helpers such as polymorphic_url. *Nicholas Seckar*
1700
1701 * Included the HttpAuthentication plugin as part of core (ActionController::HttpAuthentication::Basic) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1702
1703 * Modernize documentation for form helpers. *Jeremy McAnally*
1704
1705 * Add brief introduction to REST to the resources documentation. *fearoffish*
1706
1707 * Fix various documentation typos throughout ActionPack. *Henrik N*
1708
1709 * Enhance documentation and add examples for url_for. *Jeremy McAnally*
1710
1711 * Fix documentation typo in routes. *Norbert Crombach, pam*
1712
1713 * Sweep flash when filter chain is halted. *Caio Chassot <lists@v2studio.com>*
1714
1715 * 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*
1716
1717 * Replace the current block/continuation filter chain handling by an implementation based on a simple loop. #8226 *Stefan Kaes*
1718
1719 * Update UrlWriter to accept :anchor parameter. Closes #6771. *Chris McGrath*
1720
1721 * Added RecordTagHelper for using RecordIdentifier conventions on divs and other container elements [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1722
1723 <% div_for(post) do %> <div id="post_45" class="post">
1724 <%= post.body %> What a wonderful world!
1725 <% end %> </div>
1726
1727 * Added page[record] accessor to JavaScriptGenerator that relies on RecordIdentifier to find the right dom id [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1728
1729 format.js do
1730 # Calls: new Effect.fade('post_45');
1731 render(:update) { |page| page[post].visual_effect(:fade) }
1732 end
1733
1734 * Added RecordIdentifier to enforce view conventions on records for dom ids, classes, and partial paths *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1735
1736 * Added map.namespace to deal with the common situation of admin sections and the like *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1737
1738 Before:
1739
1740 map.resources :products, :path_prefix => "admin", :controller => "admin/products", :collection => { :inventory => :get }, :member => { :duplicate => :post }
1741 map.resources :tags, :name_prefix => 'admin_product_', :path_prefix => "admin/products/:product_id", :controller => "admin/product_tags"
1742 map.resources :images, :name_prefix => 'admin_product_', :path_prefix => "admin/products/:product_id", :controller => "admin/product_images"
1743 map.resources :variants, :name_prefix => 'admin_product_', :path_prefix => "admin/products/:product_id", :controller => "admin/product_variants"
1744
1745 After:
1746
1747 map.namespace(:admin) do |admin|
1748 admin.resources :products,
1749 :collection => { :inventory => :get },
1750 :member => { :duplicate => :post },
1751 :has_many => [ :tags, :images, :variants ]
1752 end
1753
1754 * Added :name_prefix as standard for nested resources [David Heinemeier Hansson]. WARNING: May be backwards incompatible with your app
1755
1756 Before:
1757
1758 map.resources :emails do |emails|
1759 emails.resources :comments, :name_prefix => "email_"
1760 emails.resources :attachments, :name_prefix => "email_"
1761 end
1762
1763 After:
1764
1765 map.resources :emails do |emails|
1766 emails.resources :comments
1767 emails.resources :attachments
1768 end
1769
1770 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.
1771
1772 * Added :has_many and :has_one for declaring plural and singular resources beneath the current *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1773
1774 Before:
1775
1776 map.resources :notes do |notes|
1777 notes.resources :comments
1778 notes.resources :attachments
1779 notes.resource :author
1780 end
1781
1782 After:
1783
1784 map.resources :notes, :has_many => [ :comments, :attachments ], :has_one => :author
1785
1786 * Added that render :xml will try to call to_xml if it can [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Makes these work:
1787
1788 render :xml => post
1789 render :xml => comments
1790
1791 * 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*
1792
1793 render :xml => post.to_xml, :status => :created, :location => post_url(post)
1794
1795 * Ensure that render_text only adds string content to the body of the response *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1796
1797 * Return the string representation from an Xml Builder when rendering a partial. Closes #5044 *Tim Pope*
1798
1799 * Fixed that parameters from XML should also be presented in a hash with indifferent access *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1800
1801 * 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*
1802
1803 * 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*
1804
1805 * Allow layouts with extension of .html.erb. Closes #8032 *Josh Knowles*
1806
1807 * Change default respond_to templates for xml and rjs formats. *Rick Olson*
1808
1809 * Default xml template goes from #{action_name}.rxml => #{action_name}.xml.builder.
1810 * Default rjs template goes from #{action_name}.rjs => #{action_name}.js.rjs.
1811
1812 You can still specify your old templates:
1813
1814 respond_to do |format|
1815 format.xml do
1816 render :action => "#{action_name}.rxml"
1817 end
1818 end
1819
1820 * 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*
1821
1822 * Fix WSOD when template compilation fails *Rick Olson*
1823
1824 * 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*
1825
1826 * Highlight helper highlights one or many terms in a single pass. *Jeremy Kemper*
1827
1828 * 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*
1829
1830 * Added that FormTagHelper#submit_tag will return to its original state if the submit fails and you're using :disable_with *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1831
1832 * Cleaned up, corrected, and mildly expanded ActionPack documentation. Closes #7190 *Jeremy McAnally*
1833
1834 * Small collection of ActionController documentation cleanups. Closes #7319 *Jeremy McAnally*
1835
1836 * Make sure the route expiry hash is constructed by comparing the to_param-ized values of each hash. *Jamis Buck*
1837
1838 * Allow configuration of the default action cache path for #caches_action calls. *Rick Olson*
1839
1840 class ListsController < ApplicationController
1841 caches_action :index, :cache_path => Proc.new { |controller|
1842 controller.params[:user_id] ?
1843 controller.send(:user_lists_url, c.params[:user_id]) :
1844 controller.send(:lists_url) }
1845 end
1846
1847 * Performance: patch cgi/session/pstore to require digest/md5 once rather than per #initialize. #7583 *Stefan Kaes*
1848
1849 * Cookie session store: ensure that new sessions doesn't reuse data from a deleted session in the same request. *Jeremy Kemper*
1850
1851 * Deprecation: verification with :redirect_to => :named_route shouldn't be deprecated. #7525 *Justin French*
1852
1853 * Cookie session store: raise ArgumentError when :session_key is blank. *Jeremy Kemper*
1854
1855 * 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*
1856
1857 * Consistent public/protected/private visibility for chained methods. #7813 *Dan Manges*
1858
1859 * Prefer MIME constants to strings. #7707 *Dan Kubb*
1860
1861 * 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*
1862
1863 \# 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]
1864 * Added Request#url that returns the complete URL used for the request *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1865
1866 * Extract dynamic scaffolding into a plugin. #7700 *Josh Peek*
1867
1868 * Added user/password options for url_for to add http authentication in a URL *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1869
1870 * Fixed that FormTagHelper#text_area_tag should disregard :size option if it's not a string *Brendon Davidson*
1871
1872 * 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*
1873
1874 * session_enabled? works with session :off. #6680 *Jonathan del Strother*
1875
1876 * Added :port and :host handling to UrlRewriter (which unified url_for usage, regardless of whether it's called in view or controller) #7616 *alancfrancis*
1877
1878 * Allow send_file/send_data to use a registered mime type as the :type parameter #7620 *jonathan*
1879
1880 * Allow routing requirements on map.resource(s) #7633 [quixoten]. Example:
1881
1882 map.resources :network_interfaces, :requirements => { :id => /^\d+\.\d+\.\d+\.\d+$/ }
1883
1884 * Cookie session store: empty and unchanged sessions don't write a cookie. *Jeremy Kemper*
1885
1886 * Added helper(:all) as a way to include all helpers from app/helpers/**/*.rb in ApplicationController *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1887
1888 * Integration tests: introduce methods for other HTTP methods. #6353 *caboose*
1889
1890 * Routing: better support for escaped values in route segments. #7544 [Chris
1891 Roos]
1892 * 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*
1893
1894 Example config/environment.rb:
1895 # Use an application-wide secret key and the default SHA1 message digest.
1896 config.action_controller.session = { :secret => "can't touch this" }
1897
1898 # Store a secret key per user and employ a stronger message digest.
1899 config.action_controller.session = {
1900 :digest => 'SHA512',
1901 :secret => Proc.new { User.current.secret_key }
1902 }
1903
1904 * 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.
1905
1906 * Added caching option to AssetTagHelper#stylesheet_link_tag and AssetTagHelper#javascript_include_tag [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
1907
1908 stylesheet_link_tag :all, :cache => true # when ActionController::Base.perform_caching is false =>
1909 <link href="/stylesheets/style1.css" media="screen" rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" />
1910 <link href="/stylesheets/styleB.css" media="screen" rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" />
1911 <link href="/stylesheets/styleX2.css" media="screen" rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" />
1912
1913 stylesheet_link_tag :all, :cache => true # when ActionController::Base.perform_caching is true =>
1914 <link href="/stylesheets/all.css" media="screen" rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" />
1915
1916 ...when caching is on, all.css is the concatenation of style1.css, styleB.css, and styleX2.css.
1917 Same deal for JavaScripts.
1918
1919 * 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*
1920
1921 * Added default mime type for CSS (Mime::CSS) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1922
1923 * 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*
1924
1925 * Added X-Runtime to all responses with the request run time *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1926
1927 * Add Mime::Type convenience methods to check the current mime type. *Rick Olson*
1928
1929 request.format.html? # => true if Mime::HTML
1930 request.format.jpg? # => true if Mime::JPG
1931
1932 \# ActionController sample usage:
1933 \# the session will be disabled for non html/ajax requests
1934 session :off, :if => Proc.new { |req| !(req.format.html? || req.format.js?) }
1935
1936 * Performance: patch cgi/session to require digest/md5 once rather than per #create_new_id. *Stefan Kaes*
1937
1938 * Add a :url_based_filename => true option to ActionController::Streaming::send_file, which allows URL-based filenames. *Thomas Fuchs*
1939
1940 * Fix that FormTagHelper#submit_tag using :disable_with should trigger the onsubmit handler of its form if available *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1941
1942 * Fix #render_file so that TemplateError is called with the correct params and you don't get the WSOD. *Rick Olson*
1943
1944 * 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
1945 superclass' view_paths. [Rick Olson]
1946 * Allow Controllers to have multiple view_paths instead of a single template_root. Closes #2754 *John Long*
1947
1948 * Add much-needed html-scanner tests. Fixed CDATA parsing bug. *Rick Olson*
1949
1950 * improve error message for Routing for named routes. Closes #7346 *Rob Sanheim*
1951
1952 * Added enhanced docs to routing assertions. Closes #7359 *Rob Sanheim*
1953
1954 * fix form_for example in ActionController::Resources documentation. Closes #7362 *gnarg*
1955
1956 * 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*
1957
1958 * Added FormBuilder#submit as a delegate for FormTagHelper#submit_tag *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1959
1960 * 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*
1961
1962 * Change the query parser to map empty GET params to "" rather than nil. Closes #5694. *Nicholas Seckar*
1963
1964 * date_select and datetime_select take a :default option. #7052 *Nik Wakelin*
1965 date_select "post", "written_on", :default => 3.days.from_now
1966 date_select "credit_card", "bill_due", :default => { :day => 20 }
1967
1968 * select :multiple => true suffixes the attribute name with [] unless already suffixed. #6977 *nik.kakelin, ben, julik*
1969
1970 * Improve routes documentation. #7095 *zackchandler*
1971
1972 * 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*
1973
1974 * Resource member routes require :id, eliminating the ambiguous overlap with collection routes. #7229 *dkubb*
1975
1976 * Remove deprecated assertions. *Jeremy Kemper*
1977
1978 * Change session restoration to allow namespaced models to be autoloaded. Closes #6348. *Nicholas Seckar*
1979
1980 * Fix doubly appearing parameters due to string and symbol mixups. Closes #2551. *Anthony Eden*
1981
1982 * Fix overly greedy rescues when loading helpers. Fixes #6268. *Nicholas Seckar*
1983
1984 * Fixed NumberHelper#number_with_delimiter to use "." always for splitting the original number, not the delimiter parameter #7389 *ceefour*
1985
1986 * Autolinking recognizes trailing and embedded . , : ; #7354 *Jarkko Laine*
1987
1988 * Make TextHelper::auto_link recognize URLs with colons in path correctly, fixes #7268. *imajes*
1989
1990 * Update to script.aculo.us 1.7.0. *Thomas Fuchs*
1991
1992 * Modernize cookie testing code, and increase coverage (Heckle++) #7101 *Kevin Clark*
1993
1994 * Improve Test Coverage for ActionController::Routing::Route#matches_controller_and_action? (Heckle++) #7115 *Kevin Clark*
1995
1996 * Heckling ActionController::Resources::Resource revealed that set_prefixes didn't break when :name_prefix was munged. #7081 *Kevin Clark*
1997
1998 * Fix #distance_of_time_in_words to report accurately against the Duration class. #7114 *eventualbuddha*
1999
2000 * Refactor #form_tag to allow easy extending. *Rick Olson*
2001
2002 * Update to Prototype 1.5.0. *Sam Stephenson*
2003
2004 * RecordInvalid, RecordNotSaved => 422 Unprocessable Entity, StaleObjectError => 409 Conflict. #7097 *dkubb*
2005
2006 * Allow fields_for to be nested inside form_for, so that the name and id get properly constructed *Jamis Buck*
2007
2008 * Allow inGroupsOf and eachSlice to be called through rjs. #7046 *Cody Fauser*
2009
2010 * Allow exempt_from_layout :rhtml. #6742, #7026 *Dan Manges, Squeegy*
2011
2012 * Recognize the .txt extension as Mime::TEXT *Rick Olson*
2013
2014 * Fix parsing of array[] CGI parameters so extra empty values aren't included. #6252 *Nicholas Seckar, aiwilliams, brentrowland*
2015
2016 * link_to_unless_current works with full URLs as well as paths. #6891 *Jarkko Laine, Manfred Stienstra, idrifter*
2017
2018 * Lookup the mime type for #auto_discovery_link_tag in the Mime::Type class. Closes #6941 *Josh Peek*
2019
2020 * Fix bug where nested resources ignore a parent singleton parent's path prefix. Closes #6940 *Dan Kubb*
2021
2022 * Fix no method error with error_messages_on. Closes #6935 *nik.wakelin Koz*
2023
2024 * Slight doc tweak to the ActionView::Helpers::PrototypeHelper#replace docs. Closes #6922 *Steven Bristol*
2025
2026 * Slight doc tweak to #prepend_filter. Closes #6493 *Jeremy Voorhis*
2027
2028 * Add more extensive documentation to the AssetTagHelper. Closes #6452 *Bob Silva*
2029
2030 * Clean up multiple calls to #stringify_keys in TagHelper, add better documentation and testing for TagHelper. Closes #6394 *Bob Silva*
2031
2032 * [DOCS] fix reference to ActionController::Macros::AutoComplete for #text_field_with_auto_complete. Closes #2578 *Jan Prill*
2033
2034 * Make sure html_document is reset between integration test requests. *ctm*
2035
2036 * 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*
2037
2038 * Routing uses URI escaping for path components and CGI escaping for query parameters. *darix, Jeremy Kemper*
2039
2040 * 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*
2041
2042 * Singleton resources: POST /singleton => create, GET /singleton/new => new. *Jeremy Kemper*
2043
2044 * Use 400 Bad Request status for unrescued ActiveRecord::RecordInvalid exceptions. *Jeremy Kemper*
2045
2046 * Silence log_error deprecation warnings from inspecting deprecated instance variables. *Nate Wiger*
2047
2048 * Only cache GET requests with a 200 OK response. #6514, #6743 *RSL, anamba*
2049
2050 * Add a 'referer' attribute to TestRequest. *Jamis Buck*
2051
2052 * Ensure render :json => ... skips the layout. Closes #6808 *Josh Peek*
2053
2054 * Fix HTML::Node to output double quotes instead of single quotes. Closes #6845 *mitreandy*
2055
2056 * Correctly report which filter halted the chain. #6699 *Martin Emde*
2057
2058 * Fix a bug in Routing where a parameter taken from the path of the current request could not be used as a query parameter for the next. Closes #6752. *Nicholas Seckar*
2059
2060 * Unrescued ActiveRecord::RecordNotFound responds with 404 instead of 500. *Jeremy Kemper*
2061
2062 * Improved auto_link to match more valid urls correctly *Tobias Lütke*
2063
2064 * Add singleton resources. *Rick Olson*
2065
2066 map.resource :account
2067
2068 GET /account
2069 GET /account;edit
2070 UPDATE /account
2071 DELETE /account
2072
2073 * 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*
2074 # application/json response with body 'Element.show({:name: "David"})'
2075 respond_to do |format|
2076 format.json { render :json => { :name => "David" }.to_json, :callback => 'Element.show' }
2077 end
2078
2079 * Makes :discard_year work without breaking multi-attribute parsing in AR. #1260, #3800 *sean@ardismg.com, jmartin@desertflood.com, stephen@touset.org, Bob Silva*
2080
2081 * Adds html id attribute to date helper elements. #1050, #1382 *mortonda@dgrmm.net, David North, Bob Silva*
2082
2083 * Add :index and @auto_index capability to model driven date/time selects. #847, #2655 *moriq, Doug Fales, Bob Silva*
2084
2085 * Add :order to datetime_select, select_datetime, and select_date. #1427 *Timothee Peignier, Patrick Lenz, Bob Silva*
2086
2087 * Added time_select to work with time values in models. Update scaffolding. #2489, #2833 *Justin Palmer, Andre Caum, Bob Silva*
2088
2089 * Added :include_seconds to select_datetime, datetime_select and time_select. #2998 *csn, Bob Silva*
2090
2091 * All date/datetime selects can now accept an array of month names with :use_month_names. Allows for localization. #363 *tomasj, Bob Silva*
2092
2093 * Adds :time_separator to select_time and :date_separator to select_datetime. Preserves BC. #3811 *Bob Silva*
2094
2095 * Added map.root as an alias for map.connect '' *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2096
2097 * 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:
2098
2099 GET /posts/5.xml | request.format => Mime::XML
2100 GET /posts/5.xhtml | request.format => Mime::HTML
2101 GET /posts/5 | request.format => request.accepts.first (usually Mime::HTML for browsers)
2102
2103 * Added the option for extension aliases to mime type registration [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example (already in the default routes):
2104
2105 Mime::Type.register "text/html", :html, %w( application/xhtml+xml ), %w( xhtml )
2106
2107 ...will respond on both .html and .xhtml.
2108
2109 * @response.redirect_url works with 201 Created responses: just return headers['Location'] rather than checking the response status. *Jeremy Kemper*
2110
2111 * Added CSV to Mime::SET so that respond_to csv will work *Cody Fauser*
2112
2113 * Fixed that HEAD should return the proper Content-Length header (that is, actually use @body.size, not just 0) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2114
2115 * 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*
2116
2117 * Update Routing to complain when :controller is not specified by a route. Closes #6669. *Nicholas Seckar*
2118
2119 * Ensure render_to_string cleans up after itself when an exception is raised. #6658 *Rob Sanheim*
2120
2121 * Extract template_changed_since? from compile_template? so plugins may override its behavior for non-file-based templates. #6651 *Jeff Barczewski*
2122
2123 * Update to Prototype and script.aculo.us [5579]. *Thomas Fuchs*
2124
2125 * simple_format helper doesn't choke on nil. #6644 *jerry426*
2126
2127 * Update to Prototype 1.5.0_rc2 [5550] which makes it work in Opera again *Thomas Fuchs*
2128
2129 * 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*
2130
2131 * ActionView::Base.erb_variable accessor names the buffer variable used to render templates. Defaults to _erbout; use _buf for erubis. *Rick Olson*

2173 Hello world!
2174 <% end %>
2175
2176 Will output:
2177 <div class="strong">Hello world!</div>
2178
2179 * Deprecated UrlHelper#link_to_image and UrlHelper#link_to :post => true #6409 *Bob Silva*

2202
2203 * Fix broken assert_generates when extra keys are being checked. *Jamis Buck*
2204
2205 * Replace KCODE checks with String#chars for truncate. Closes #6385 *Manfred Stienstra*
2206
2207 * 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.*
2208
2209 * Use String#chars in TextHelper::excerpt. Closes #6386 *Manfred Stienstra*
2210

2220
2221 * Rename test assertion to prevent shadowing. Closes #6306. *psross*
2222
2223 * Fixed that NumberHelper#number_to_delimiter should respect precision of higher than two digits #6231 *Philip Hallstrom*

2228
2229 update_page_tag :defer => 'true' { |page| ... }
2230
2231 Gives:
2232
2233 <script defer="true" type="text/javascript">...</script>
2234
2235 Which is needed for dealing with the IE6 DOM when it's not yet fully loaded.
2236
2237 * Fixed that rescue template path shouldn't be hardcoded, then it's easier to hook in your own #6295 *Mike Naberezny*
2238
2239 * Fixed escaping of backslashes in JavaScriptHelper#escape_javascript #6302 *sven@c3d2.de*
2240
2241 * Fixed that some 500 rescues would cause 500's themselves because the response had not yet been generated #6329 *cmselmer*

2244
2245 * Fixed some deprecation warnings in ActionPack *Rick Olson*
2246
2247 * assert_select_rjs decodes escaped unicode chars since the Javascript generators encode them. #6240 *japgolly*
2248
2249 * Deprecation: @cookies, @headers, @request, @response will be removed after 1.2. Use the corresponding method instead. *Jeremy Kemper*
2250
2251 * 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:
2252
2253 head :status => 404 # expands to "404 Not Found"
2254 head :status => :not_found # expands to "404 Not Found"
2255 head :status => :created # expands to "201 Created"
2256
2257 * Add head(options = {}) for responses that have no body. [Jamis Buck]. Examples:
2258
2259 head :status => 404 # return an empty response with a 404 status
2260 head :location => person_path(@person), :status => 201
2261
2262 * Fix bug that kept any before_filter except the first one from being able to halt the before_filter chain. *Rick Olson*
2263
2264 * strip_links is case-insensitive. #6285 *tagoh, Bob Silva*
2265
2266 * Clear the cache of possible controllers whenever Routes are reloaded. *Nicholas Seckar*
2267
2268 * Filters overhaul including meantime filter support using around filters + blocks. #5949 *Martin Emde, Roman Le Negrate, Stefan Kaes, Jeremy Kemper*
2269

2271
2272 * Update CGI process to allow sessions to contain namespaced models. Closes #4638. *dfelstead@site5.com*
2273
2274 * Fix routing to respect user provided requirements and defaults when assigning default routing options (such as :action => 'index'). Closes #5950. *Nicholas Seckar*
2275
2276 * Rescue Errno::ECONNRESET to handle an unexpectedly closed socket connection. Improves SCGI reliability. #3368, #6226 *sdsykes, fhanshaw@vesaria.com*
2277
2278 * Added that respond_to blocks will automatically set the content type to be the same as is requested [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
2279
2280 respond_to do |format|
2281 format.html { render :text => "I'm being sent as text/html" }
2282 format.rss { render :text => "I'm being sent as application/rss+xml" }
2283 format.atom { render :text => "I'm being sent as application/xml", :content_type => Mime::XML }
2284 end
2285
2286 * Added utf-8 as the default charset for all renders. You can change this default using ActionController::Base.default_charset=(encoding) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2287
2288 * Added proper getters and setters for content type and charset [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example of what we used to do:
2289
2290 response.headers["Content-Type"] = "application/atom+xml; charset=utf-8"
2291
2292 ...now:
2293
2294 response.content_type = Mime::ATOM
2295 response.charset = "utf-8"
2296
2297 * Updated prototype.js to 1.5.0_rc1 with latest fixes. *Rick Olson*

2324
2325 * Fix assert_tag so that :content => "foo" does not match substrings, but only exact strings. Use :content => /foo/ to match substrings. #2799 *Eric Hodel*

2332
2333 * 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:
2334
2335 link_to("Hider", nil, :class => "hider_link") { |p| p[:something].hide }
2336
2337 ...can be written like this:

2448
2449 * Restrict Request Method hacking with ?_method to POST requests. *Rick Olson*

2535
2536 * 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*
2537
2538 map.connect '/foo/:id', :controller => '...', :action => '...'
2539 map.connect '/foo/:id.:format', :controller => '...', :action => '...'
2540 map.connect '/foo/:id', ..., :conditions => { :method => :get }
2541
2542 * Cope with missing content type and length headers. Parse parameters from multipart and urlencoded request bodies only. *Jeremy Kemper*
2543
2544 * Accept multipart PUT parameters. #5235 *guy.naor@famundo.com*
2545
2546 * 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:
2547
2548 class WeblogController < ActionController::Base
2549 def index
2550 @posts = Post.find :all
2551
2552 respond_to do |format|
2553 format.html
2554 format.xml { render :xml => @posts.to_xml }
2555 format.rss { render :action => "feed.rxml" }
2556 end
2557 end
2558 end
2559
2560 \# returns HTML when requested by a browser, since the browser
2561 \# has the HTML mimetype at the top of its priority list
2562 Accept: text/html
2563 GET /weblog
2564
2565 \# returns the XML
2566 Accept: application/xml
2567 GET /weblog
2568
2569 \# returns the HTML
2570 Accept: application/xml
2571 GET /weblog.html
2572
2573 \# returns the XML
2574 Accept: text/html
2575 GET /weblog.xml
2576
2577 All this relies on the fact that you have a route that includes .:format.
2578
2579 * 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*
2580
2581 * 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*
2582
2583 * follow_redirect doesn't complain about being redirected to the same controller. #5153 *dymo@mk.ukrtelecom.ua*
2584
2585 * Add layout attribute to response object with the name of the layout that was rendered, or nil if none rendered. *Kevin Clark*
2586
2587 * Fix NoMethodError when parsing params like &&. *Adam Greenfield*
2588
2589 * Fix flip flopped logic in docs for url_for's :only_path option. Closes #4998. *esad@esse.at*
2590
2591 * form.text_area handles the :size option just like the original text_area (:size => '60x10' becomes cols="60" rows="10"). *Jeremy Kemper*
2592
2593 * Excise ingrown code from FormOptionsHelper#options_for_select. #5008 *anonymous*
2594
2595 * Small fix in routing to allow dynamic routes (broken after [4242]) *Rick Olson*
2596
2597 map.connect '*path', :controller => 'files', :action => 'show'
2598
2599 * Replace alias method chaining with Module#alias_method_chain. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
2600
2601 * Replace Ruby's deprecated append_features in favor of included. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
2602
2603 * Use #flush between switching from #write to #syswrite. Closes #4907. *Blair Zajac <blair@orcaware.com>*
2604
2605 * Documentation fix: integration test scripts don't require integration_test. Closes #4914. *Frederick Ros <sl33p3r@free.fr>*
2606

2610
2611 * Fixes bad rendering of JavaScriptMacrosHelper rdoc (closes #4910) *Frederick Ros*
2612

2614
2615 error_messages_for :account, :user, :subscription, :object_name => :account
2616
2617 * Enhance documentation for setting headers in integration tests. Skip auto HTTP prepending when its already there. Closes #4079. *Rick Olson*
2618
2619 * Documentation for AbstractRequest. Closes #4895. *Kevin Clark*
2620
2621 * Refactor various InstanceTag instance method to class methods. Closes #4800. *Stefan Kaes*
2622
2623 * Remove all remaining references to @params in the documentation. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
2624
2625 * Add documentation for redirect_to :back's RedirectBackError exception. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
2626
2627 * Update layout and content_for documentation to use yield rather than magic @content_for instance variables. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
2628
2629 * Fix assert_redirected_to tests according to real-world usage. Also, don't fail if you add an extra :controller option: *Rick Olson*
2630
2631 redirect_to :action => 'new'
2632 assert_redirected_to :controller => 'monkeys', :action => 'new'
2633
2634 * Cache CgiRequest#request_parameters so that multiple calls don't re-parse multipart data. *Rick Olson*
2635
2636 * Diff compared routing options. Allow #assert_recognizes to take a second arg as a hash to specify optional request method *Rick Olson*
2637
2638 assert_recognizes({:controller => 'users', :action => 'index'}, 'users')
2639 assert_recognizes({:controller => 'users', :action => 'create'}, {:path => 'users', :method => :post})
2640
2641 * Diff compared options with #assert_redirected_to *Rick Olson*
2642
2643 * Add support in routes for semicolon delimited "subpaths", like /books/:id;:action *Jamis Buck*
2644
2645 * 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*
2646
2647 * 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*
2648
2649 * 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*
2650
2651 * 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*
2652 ex. verify :only => :speak, :method => :post,
2653 :render => { :status => 405, :text => "Must be post" },
2654 :add_headers => { "Allow" => "POST" }
2655
2656 * 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*
2657
2658
2659 ## 1.13.3 (March 12th, 2007) ##
2660
2661 * Apply [5709] to stable.
2662
2663 * session_enabled? works with session :off. #6680 *Jonathan del Strother*
2664
2665 * Performance: patch cgi/session to require digest/md5 once rather than per #create_new_id. *Stefan Kaes*
2666
2667
2668 ## 1.13.2 (February 5th, 2007) ##
2669
2670 * Add much-needed html-scanner tests. Fixed CDATA parsing bug. *Rick Olson*
2671
2672 * improve error message for Routing for named routes. *Rob Sanheim*
2673
2674 * Added enhanced docs to routing assertions. *Rob Sanheim*
2675
2676 * fix form_for example in ActionController::Resources documentation. *gnarg*
2677
2678 * Add singleton resources from trunk *Rick Olson*
2679
2680 * select :multiple => true suffixes the attribute name with [] unless already suffixed. #6977 *nik.kakelin, ben, julik*
2681
2682 * Improve routes documentation. #7095 *zackchandler*
2683
2684 * Resource member routes require :id, eliminating the ambiguous overlap with collection routes. #7229 *dkubb*
2685
2686 * Fixed NumberHelper#number_with_delimiter to use "." always for splitting the original number, not the delimiter parameter #7389 *ceefour*
2687
2688 * Autolinking recognizes trailing and embedded . , : ; #7354 *Jarkko Laine*

2713
2714 * Fix HTML::Node to output double quotes instead of single quotes. Closes #6845 *mitreandy*
2715
2716 * Fix no method error with error_messages_on. Closes #6935 *nik.wakelin Koz*
2717
2718 * Slight doc tweak to the ActionView::Helpers::PrototypeHelper#replace docs. Closes #6922 *Steven Bristol*

2727
2728 * Make sure html_document is reset between integration test requests. *ctm*
2729
2730 * 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*
2731
2732 * 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*
2733
2734 * Ensure render :json => ... skips the layout. #6808 *Josh Peek*
2735
2736 * Silence log_error deprecation warnings from inspecting deprecated instance variables. *Nate Wiger*
2737
2738 * Only cache GET requests with a 200 OK response. #6514, #6743 *RSL, anamba*
2739
2740 * Correctly report which filter halted the chain. #6699 *Martin Emde*
2741
2742 * 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*
2743 # application/json response with body 'Element.show({:name: "David"})'
2744 respond_to do |format|
2745 format.json { render :json => { :name => "David" }.to_json, :callback => 'Element.show' }
2746 end
2747
2748 * Makes :discard_year work without breaking multi-attribute parsing in AR. #1260, #3800 *sean@ardismg.com, jmartin@desertflood.com, stephen@touset.org, Bob Silva*
2749
2750 * Adds html id attribute to date helper elements. #1050, #1382 *mortonda@dgrmm.net, David North, Bob Silva*
2751
2752 * Add :index and @auto_index capability to model driven date/time selects. #847, #2655 *moriq, Doug Fales, Bob Silva*
2753
2754 * Add :order to datetime_select, select_datetime, and select_date. #1427 *Timothee Peignier, Patrick Lenz, Bob Silva*
2755
2756 * Added time_select to work with time values in models. Update scaffolding. #2489, #2833 *Justin Palmer, Andre Caum, Bob Silva*
2757
2758 * Added :include_seconds to select_datetime, datetime_select and time_select. #2998 *csn, Bob Silva*
2759
2760 * All date/datetime selects can now accept an array of month names with :use_month_names. Allows for localization. #363 *tomasj, Bob Silva*
2761
2762 * Adds :time_separator to select_time and :date_separator to select_datetime. Preserves BC. #3811 *Bob Silva*
2763
2764 * @response.redirect_url works with 201 Created responses: just return headers['Location'] rather than checking the response status. *Jeremy Kemper*
2765
2766 * Fixed that HEAD should return the proper Content-Length header (that is, actually use @body.size, not just 0) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2767
2768 * 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*
2769
2770
2771 ## 1.13.0 RC1 (r5619, November 22nd, 2006) ##
2772
2773 * Update Routing to complain when :controller is not specified by a route. Closes #6669. *Nicholas Seckar*
2774
2775 * Ensure render_to_string cleans up after itself when an exception is raised. #6658 *rsanheim*
2776
2777 * Update to Prototype and script.aculo.us [5579]. *Sam Stephenson, Thomas Fuchs*
2778
2779 * simple_format helper doesn't choke on nil. #6644 *jerry426*
2780
2781 * 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*
2782
2783 * Deprecate standalone components. *Jeremy Kemper*
2784
2785 * Always clear model associations from session. #4795 *sd@notso.net, andylien@gmail.com*
2786
2787 * Remove JavaScriptLiteral in favor of ActiveSupport::JSON::Variable. *Sam Stephenson*
2788
2789 * Sync ActionController::StatusCodes::STATUS_CODES with http://www.iana.org/assignments/http-status-codes. #6586 *dkubb*
2790
2791 * 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*
2792
2793 * assert_response supports symbolic status codes. #6569 *Kevin Clark*
2794 assert_response :ok
2795 assert_response :not_found
2796 assert_response :forbidden
2797
2798 * Cache parsed query parameters. #6559 *Stefan Kaes*
2799
2800 * Deprecate JavaScriptHelper#update_element_function, which is superseeded by RJS *Thomas Fuchs*
2801
2802 * Fix invalid test fixture exposed by stricter Ruby 1.8.5 multipart parsing. #6524 *Bob Silva*
2803
2804 * Set ActionView::Base.default_form_builder once rather than passing the :builder option to every form or overriding the form helper methods. *Jeremy Kemper*
2805
2806 * Deprecate expire_matched_fragments. Use expire_fragment instead. #6535 *Bob Silva*
2807
2808 * Deprecate start_form_tag and end_form_tag. Use form_tag / '</form>' from now on. *Rick Olson*
2809
2810 * Added block-usage to PrototypeHelper#form_remote_tag, document block-usage of FormTagHelper#form_tag *Rick Olson*
2811
2812 * Add a 0 margin/padding div around the hidden _method input tag that form_tag outputs. *Rick Olson*
2813
2814 * Added block-usage to TagHelper#content_tag [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
2815
2816 <% content_tag :div, :class => "strong" %>
2817 Hello world!
2818 <% end %>
2819
2820 Will output:
2821 <div class="strong">Hello world!</div>
2822
2823 * Deprecated UrlHelper#link_to_image and UrlHelper#link_to :post => true #6409 *Bob Silva*
2824
2825 * 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*
2826
2827 * Fixed that setting RAILS_ASSET_ID to "" should not add a trailing slash after assets #6454 *Bob Silva/chrismear*
2828
2829 * Force *_url named routes to show the host in ActionView *Rick Olson*
2830
2831 <%= url_for ... %> # no host
2832 <%= foo_path %> # no host
2833 <%= foo_url %> # host!
2834
2835 * Add support for converting blocks into function arguments to JavaScriptGenerator#call and JavaScriptProxy#call. *Sam Stephenson*
2836
2837 * Add JavaScriptGenerator#literal for wrapping a string in an object whose #to_json is the string itself. *Sam Stephenson*
2838
2839 * Add <%= escape_once html %> to escape html while leaving any currently escaped entities alone. Fix button_to double-escaping issue. *Rick Olson*
2840
2841 * Fix double-escaped entities, such as &amp;amp;, &amp;#123;, etc. *Rick Olson*
2842
2843 * Fix routing to correctly determine when generation fails. Closes #6300. [psross].
2844
2845 * Fix broken assert_generates when extra keys are being checked. *Jamis Buck*
2846
2847 * Replace KCODE checks with String#chars for truncate. Closes #6385 *Manfred Stienstra*
2848
2849 * 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.*
2850
2851 * Use String#chars in TextHelper::excerpt. Closes #6386 *Manfred Stienstra*
2852
2853 * Fix relative URL root matching problems. *Mark Imbriaco*
2854
2855 * Fix filter skipping in controller subclasses. #5949, #6297, #6299 *Martin Emde*
2856
2857 * 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*
2858
2859 * Rename test assertion to prevent shadowing. Closes #6306. *psross*
2860
2861 * Fixed that NumberHelper#number_to_delimiter should respect precision of higher than two digits #6231 *Philip Hallstrom*
2862
2863 * Fixed that FormHelper#radio_button didn't respect an :id being passed in #6266 *evansj*
2864
2865 * Added an html_options hash parameter to javascript_tag() and update_page_tag() helpers #6311 [tzaharia]. Example:
2866
2867 update_page_tag :defer => 'true' { |page| ... }
2868
2869 Gives:
2870
2871 <script defer="true" type="text/javascript">...</script>
2872
2873 Which is needed for dealing with the IE6 DOM when it's not yet fully loaded.
2874
2875 * Fixed that rescue template path shouldn't be hardcoded, then it's easier to hook in your own #6295 *Mike Naberezny*
2876
2877 * Fixed escaping of backslashes in JavaScriptHelper#escape_javascript #6302 *sven@c3d2.de*
2878
2879 * Fixed that some 500 rescues would cause 500's themselves because the response had not yet been generated #6329 *cmselmer*
2880
2881 * respond_to :html doesn't assume .rhtml. #6281 *Hampton Catlin*
2882
2883 * Fixed some deprecation warnings in ActionPack *Rick Olson*
2884
2885 * assert_select_rjs decodes escaped unicode chars since the Javascript generators encode them. #6240 *japgolly*
2886
2887 * Deprecation: @cookies, @headers, @request, @response will be removed after 1.2. Use the corresponding method instead. *Jeremy Kemper*
2888
2889 * 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:
2890
2891 head :status => 404 # expands to "404 Not Found"
2892 head :status => :not_found # expands to "404 Not Found"
2893 head :status => :created # expands to "201 Created"
2894
2895 * Add head(options = {}) for responses that have no body. [Jamis Buck]. Examples:
2896
2897 head :status => 404 # return an empty response with a 404 status
2898 head :location => person_path(@person), :status => 201
2899
2900 * Fix bug that kept any before_filter except the first one from being able to halt the before_filter chain. *Rick Olson*
2901
2902 * strip_links is case-insensitive. #6285 *tagoh, Bob Silva*
2903
2904 * Clear the cache of possible controllers whenever Routes are reloaded. *Nicholas Seckar*
2905
2906 * Filters overhaul including meantime filter support using around filters + blocks. #5949 *Martin Emde, Roman Le Negrate, Stefan Kaes, Jeremy Kemper*
2907
2908 * Update CGI process to allow sessions to contain namespaced models. Closes #4638. *dfelstead@site5.com*
2909
2910 * Fix routing to respect user provided requirements and defaults when assigning default routing options (such as :action => 'index'). Closes #5950. *Nicholas Seckar*
2911
2912 * Rescue Errno::ECONNRESET to handle an unexpectedly closed socket connection. Improves SCGI reliability. #3368, #6226 *sdsykes, fhanshaw@vesaria.com*
2913
2914 * Added that respond_to blocks will automatically set the content type to be the same as is requested [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
2915
2916 respond_to do |format|
2917 format.html { render :text => "I'm being sent as text/html" }
2918 format.rss { render :text => "I'm being sent as application/rss+xml" }
2919 format.atom { render :text => "I'm being sent as application/xml", :content_type => Mime::XML }
2920 end
2921
2922 * Added utf-8 as the default charset for all renders. You can change this default using ActionController::Base.default_charset=(encoding) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2923
2924 * Added proper getters and setters for content type and charset [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example of what we used to do:
2925
2926 response.headers["Content-Type"] = "application/atom+xml; charset=utf-8"
2927
2928 ...now:
2929
2930 response.content_type = Mime::ATOM
2931 response.charset = "utf-8"
2932
2933 * Declare file extensions exempt from layouts. #6219 *brandon*
2934 Example: ActionController::Base.exempt_from_layout 'rpdf'

2944
2945 assert_select_rjs :chained_replace
2946 assert_select_rjs :chained_replace, "test1"
2947
2948 assert_select_rjs :chained_replace_html
2949 assert_select_rjs :chained_replace_html, "test2"
2950

2964
2965 ...can be written like this:

2971 page['foo']['style'] # => $('foo').style;
2972 page['foo']['style']['color'] # => $('blank_slate').style.color;
2973 page['foo']['style']['color'] = 'red' # => $('blank_slate').style.color = 'red';

3009
3010 * Make auto_link parse a greater subset of valid url formats. *Jamis Buck*

3014 * Switch to using FormEncodedPairParser for parsing request parameters. *Nicholas Seckar, David Heinemeier Hansson*
3015

3019

3038 * Add support for the param_name parameter to the auto_complete_field helper. #5026 *david.a.williams@gmail.com*
3039
3040 * 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*
3041
3042 * Make Routing noisy when an anchor regexp is assigned to a segment. #5674 *François Beausoleil*

3059 map.resources :messages, :comments
3060 map.resources :messages, :new => { :preview => :post }
3061
3062 * Fixed that integration simulation of XHRs should set Accept header as well *Edward Frederick*
3063
3064 * TestRequest#reset_session should restore a TestSession, not a hash *Michael Koziarski*
3065
3066 * Don't search a load-path of '.' for controller files *Jamis Buck*

3082
3083 * Reset @html_document between requests so assert_tag works. #4810 *Jarkko Laine, easleydp@gmail.com*
3084
3085 * Integration tests behave well with render_component. #4632 *edward.frederick@revolution.com, dev.rubyonrails@maxdunn.com*
3086
3087 * Added exception handling of missing layouts #5373 *chris@ozmm.org*
