jonleighton authored
43 * Module#qualified_const_(defined?|get|set) are analogous to the corresponding methods
44 in the standard API, but accept qualified constant names. *fxn*
45
46 * Added inflection #deconstantize which complements #demodulize. This inflection
47 removes the righmost segment in a qualified constant name. *fxn*
48
49 * Added ActiveSupport:TaggedLogging that can wrap any standard Logger class to provide tagging capabilities *DHH*
50
51 Logger = ActiveSupport::TaggedLogging.new(Logger.new(STDOUT))
52 Logger.tagged("BCX") { Logger.info "Stuff" } # Logs "[BCX] Stuff"
53 Logger.tagged("BCX", "Jason") { Logger.info "Stuff" } # Logs "[BCX] [Jason] Stuff"
54 Logger.tagged("BCX") { Logger.tagged("Jason") { Logger.info "Stuff" } } # Logs "[BCX] [Jason] Stuff"
55
56 * Added safe_constantize that constantizes a string but returns nil instead of an exception if the constant (or part of it) does not exist *Ryan Oblak*
57
58 * ActiveSupport::OrderedHash is now marked as extractable when using Array#extract_options! *Prem Sichanugrist*
59
60 * Added Array#prepend as an alias for Array#unshift and Array#append as an alias for Array#<< *DHH*
61
62 * The definition of blank string for Ruby 1.9 has been extended to Unicode whitespace.
63 Also, in 1.8 the ideographic space U+3000 is considered to be whitespace. *Akira Matsuda, Damien Mathieu*
64
65 * The inflector understands acronyms. *dlee*
66
67 * Deprecated ActiveSupport::Memoizable in favor of Ruby memoization pattern *José Valim*
68
69 * Added Time#all_day/week/quarter/year as a way of generating ranges (example: Event.where(created_at: Time.now.all_week)) *DHH*

71 * Added instance_accessor: false as an option to Class#cattr_accessor and friends *DHH*
72
73 * Removed ActiveSupport::SecureRandom in favor of SecureRandom from the standard library *Jon Leighton*

tenderlove authored
78 * ActiveSupport::BufferedLogger#silence is deprecated. If you want to squelch
79 logs for a certain block, change the log level for that block.
80
81 * ActiveSupport::BufferedLogger#open_log is deprecated. This method should
82 not have been public in the first place.
83
84 * ActiveSupport::BufferedLogger's behavior of automatically creating the
85 directory for your log file is deprecated. Please make sure to create the
86 directory for your log file before instantiating.
87
88 * ActiveSupport::BufferedLogger#auto_flushing is deprecated. Either set the
89 sync level on the underlying file handle like this:
90
91 f = File.open('foo.log', 'w')
92 f.sync = true
93 ActiveSupport::BufferedLogger.new f
94
95 Or tune your filesystem. The FS cache is now what controls flushing.
96
97 * ActiveSupport::BufferedLogger#flush is deprecated. Set sync on your
98 filehandle, or tune your filesystem.

141
142 * ActiveSupport::BufferedLogger set log encoding to BINARY, but still use text
143 mode to output portable newlines. *fxn*
144
145 * ActiveSupport::Dependencies now raises NameError if it finds an existing constant in load_missing_constant. This better reflects the nature of the error which is usually caused by calling constantize on a nested constant. *Andrew White*
146
147 * Deprecated ActiveSupport::SecureRandom in favour of SecureRandom from the standard library *Jon Leighton*
148
149 * New reporting method Kernel#quietly. *fxn*

154
155 * LocalCache strategy is now a real middleware class, not an anonymous class
156 posing for pictures.
157
158 * ActiveSupport::Dependencies::ClassCache class has been introduced for
159 holding references to reloadable classes.
160
161 * ActiveSupport::Dependencies::Reference has been refactored to take direct
162 advantage of the new ClassCache.
163
164 * Backports Range#cover? as an alias for Range#include? in Ruby 1.8 *Diego Carrion, fxn*
165

167
168 * Added before_remove_const callback to ActiveSupport::Dependencies.remove_unloadable_constants! *Andrew White*
169
170 * JSON decoding now uses the multi_json gem which also vendors a json engine called OkJson. The yaml backend has been removed in favor of OkJson as a default engine for 1.8.x, while the built in 1.9.x json implementation will be used by default. *Josh Kalderimis*

233
234 ## Rails 3.0.0 (August 29, 2010) ##
235
236 * Implemented String#strip_heredoc. *fxn*
237
238 * Pluggable cache stores: setting config.cache_store = "custom_store" will require 'active_support/cache/custom_store' and look for the CustomStore constant. #5486 *Mike Perham*
239
240 * Removed Object#returning, Object#tap should be used instead. *Santiago Pastorino*
241
242 * Deprecation behavior is no longer hardcoded to the name of the environment.
243 Instead, it is set via config.active_support.deprecation and can be one
244 of :log, :stderr or :notify. :notify is a new style that sends the warning
245 via ActiveSupport::Notifications, and is the new default for production
246 *Yehuda Katz*
247
248 * Renamed ActiveSupport::Dependecies.load_(once_)paths to autoload_(once_)paths. *fxn*
249
250 * Added ActiveSupport::FileUpdateChecker to execute a block only if a set of files changed, used by Router and I18n locale files. *José Valim*
251
252 * Added ActiveSupport::DescendantsTracker to track descendants with support to constants reloading. *José Valim*
253
254 * ActiveSupport::OrderedHash#merge and #merge! accept a block. #4838 *Paul Mucur, fxn*
255
256 * Date#since, #ago, #beginning_of_day, #end_of_day, and #xmlschema honor now the user time zone if set. *Geoff Buesing*
257
258 * Extracted String#truncate from TextHelper#truncate *DHH*
259
260 * Ruby 1.9: support UTF-8 case folding. #4595 *Norman Clarke*
261
262 * Removes Array#rand and backports Array#sample from Ruby 1.9, thanks to Marc-Andre Lafortune. *fxn*
263
264 * Ruby 1.9: Renames last_(month|year) to prev_(month|year) in Date and Time. *fxn*
265
266 * Aliases Date#sunday to Date#end_of_week. *fxn*
267
268 * Backports Date#>> from 1.9 so that calculations do the right thing around the calendar reform. *fxn*
269
270 * Date#to_time handles properly years in the range 0..138. *fxn*
271
272 * Deprecate {{}} as interpolation syntax for I18n in favor of %{} *José Valim*
273
274 * Array#to_xml is more powerful and able to handle the same types as Hash#to_xml #4490 *Neeraj Singh*
275
276 * Harmonize the caching API and refactor the backends. #4452 *Brian Durand*
277 All caches:
278 * Add default options to initializer that will be sent to all read, write, fetch, exist?, increment, and decrement
279 * Add support for the :expires_in option to fetch and write for all caches. Cache entries are stored with the create timestamp and a ttl so that expiration can be handled independently of the implementation.
280 * Add support for a :namespace option. This can be used to set a global prefix for cache entries.
281 * Deprecate expand_cache_key on ActiveSupport::Cache and move it to ActionController::Caching and ActionDispatch::Http::Cache since the logic in the method used some Rails specific environment variables and was only used by ActionPack classes. Not very DRY but there didn't seem to be a good shared spot and ActiveSupport really shouldn't be Rails specific.
282 * Add support for :race_condition_ttl to fetch. This setting can prevent race conditions on fetch calls where several processes try to regenerate a recently expired entry at once.
283 * Add support for :compress option to fetch and write which will compress any data over a configurable threshold.
284 * Nil values can now be stored in the cache and are distinct from cache misses for fetch.
285 * Easier API to create new implementations. Just need to implement the methods read_entry, write_entry, and delete_entry instead of overwriting existing methods.
286 * Since all cache implementations support storing objects, update the docs to state that ActiveCache::Cache::Store implementations should store objects. Keys, however, must be strings since some implementations require that.
287 * Increase test coverage.
288 * Document methods which are provided as convenience but which may not be universally available.
289
290 MemoryStore:
291 * MemoryStore can now safely be used as the cache for single server sites.
292 * Make thread safe so that the default cache implementation used by Rails is thread safe. The overhead is minimal and it is still the fastest store available.
293 * Provide :size initialization option indicating the maximum size of the cache in memory (defaults to 32Mb).
294 * Add prune logic that removes the least recently used cache entries to keep the cache size from exceeding the max.
295 * Deprecated SynchronizedMemoryStore since it isn't needed anymore.
296
297 FileStore:
298 * Escape key values so they will work as file names on all file systems, be consistent, and case sensitive
299 * Use a hash algorithm to segment the cache into sub directories so that a large cache doesn't exceed file system limits.
300 * FileStore can be slow so implement the LocalCache strategy to cache reads for the duration of a request.
301 * Add cleanup method to keep the disk from filling up with expired entries.
302 * Fix increment and decrement to use file system locks so they are consistent between processes.
303
304 MemCacheStore:
305 * Support all keys. Previously keys with spaces in them would fail
306 * Deprecate CompressedMemCacheStore since it isn't needed anymore (use :compress => true)
307
308 * JSON: encode objects that don't have a native JSON representation using to_hash, if available, instead of instance_values (the old fallback) or to_s (other encoders' default). Encode BigDecimal and Regexp encode as strings to conform with other encoders. Try to transcode non-UTF-8 strings. *Jeremy Kemper*
309
310 * HashWithIndifferentAccess: remove inherited symbolize_keys! since its keys are always strings. *Santiago Pastorino*
311
312 * Improve transliteration quality. #4374 *Norman Clarke*
313
314 * Speed up and add Ruby 1.9 support for ActiveSupport::Multibyte::Chars#tidy_bytes. #4350 *Norman Clarke*
315
316 * Reduced load time by deferring configuration of classes using
317 ActiveSupport::on_load(:component_name) *YK*
318
319 * Rename #metaclass to #singleton_class now that ruby-core has decided *JK*
320
321 * New assertions assert_blank and assert_present. #4299 *Juanjo Bazan*
322
323 * Use Object#singleton_class instead of #metaclass. Prefer Ruby's choice. *Jeremy Kemper*
324
325 * JSON backend for YAJL. Preferred if available. #2666 *Brian Lopez*
326
327 * Introduce class_attribute to declare inheritable class attributes. Writing an attribute on a subclass behaves just like overriding the superclass reader method. Unifies and replaces most usage of cattr_accessor, class_inheritable_attribute, superclass_delegating_attribute, and extlib_inheritable_attribute. *Jeremy Kemper, Yehuda Katz*
328
329 * Time#- with a DateTime argument behaves the same as with a Time argument, i.e. returns the difference between self and arg as a Float #3476 *Geoff Buesing*
330
331 * YAML serialization for OrderedHash. #3608 *Gregor Schmidt*
332
333 * Update bundled TZInfo to v0.3.16 *Geoff Buesing*
334
335 * Georgetown TimeZone is now mapped to "America/Guyana" instead of "America/Argentina/San_Juan" #1821 *Geoff Buesing, Reuben Sivan*
336
337 * Changed the default ActiveSupport.use_standard_json_time_format from false to true and
338 ActiveSupport.escape_html_entities_in_json from true to false to match previously announced Rails 3 defaults *DHH*
339
340 * Added Object#presence that returns the object if it's #present? otherwise returns nil *DHH/Colin Kelley*
341
342 * Add Enumerable#exclude? to bring parity to Enumerable#include? and avoid if !x.include?/else calls *DHH*
343
344 * Update Edinburgh TimeZone to use "Europe/London" instead of "Europe/Dublin" #3310 *Phil Ross*
345
346 * Update bundled TZInfo to v0.3.15 *Geoff Buesing*
347
348 * JSON: +Object#to_json+ calls +as_json+ to coerce itself into something natively encodable like +Hash+, +Integer+, or +String+. Override +as_json+ instead of +to_json+ so you're JSON library agnostic. *Jeremy Kemper*
349
350 * String #to_time and #to_datetime: handle fractional seconds #864 *Jason Frey*
351
352 * Update bundled TZInfo to v0.3.13 *Geoff Buesing*
353
354 * Allow MemCacheStore to be initialized with a MemCache-like object instead of addresses and options *Bryan Helmkamp*
355
356 * Change spelling of Kyev timezone to Kyiv #2613 *Alexander Dymo*
357
358 * Add ActiveSupport.parse_json_times to disable time parsing in JSON backends that don't support it or don't need it. *rick*
359
360 * Add pluggable JSON backends with support for the JSON gem. *rick*
361 Example: ActiveSupport::JSON.backend = "JSONGem"
362
363 All internal Rails JSON encoding is now handled by ActiveSupport::JSON.encode(). Use of #to_json is not recommended, as it may clash with other libraries that overwrite it. However, you can recover Rails specific functionality
364 if you really want to use #to_json.
365
366 gem 'json'
367 ActiveSupport::JSON.backend = "JSONGem"
368
369 class ActiveRecord::Base
370 alias to_json rails_to_json
371 end
372
373 * require 'active_support' no longer orders the whole menu of core extensions. Ask for just what you need: e.g. require 'active_support/core/time' to use timezones, durations, and stdlib date/time extensions. *Jeremy Kemper*
374
375 * Removed rarely-used DRb cache store. *Jeremy Kemper*
376
377 * TimeWithZone.name returns 'Time', to further thwart type checking *Geoff Buesing*
378
379 * Time.local instances: Adding 24.hours across the DST boundary adds 24 hours instead of one day #2066 *Michael Curtis*
380
381
382 ## 2.3.2 Final (March 15, 2009) ##
383
384 * XmlMini supports LibXML and Nokogiri backends. #2084, #2190 *Bart ten Brinke, Aaron Patterson*
385 Example: XmlMini.backend = 'Nokogiri'
386
387 * Vendorize i18n 0.1.3 gem (fixes issues with incompatible character encodings in Ruby 1.9) #2038 *Akira Matsuda*
388
389 * Update bundled memcache-client from 1.5.0.5 to 1.6.4.99. See http://www.mikeperham.com/2009/02/15/memcache-client-performance/ *Mike Perham*
390
391 * Ruby 1.9.1p0 fix: URI.unescape can decode multibyte chars. #2033 *MOROHASHI Kyosuke*
392
393 * Time#to_s(:rfc822) uses #formatted_offset instead of unreliable and non-standard %z directive #1899 *Zachary Zolton*
394
395 * Make TimeWithZone#to_formatted_s an alias to TimeWithZone#to_s #1796 *Levin Alexander*
396
397 * Introduce Array.wrap(foo) to wrap the argument in an array unless it's already an array. Wraps nil as an empty array. Use instead of Array(foo) and foo.to_a since they treat String as Enumerable. *Jeremy Kemper*
398
399 * TimeWithZone#xmlschema accepts optional fraction_digits argument [#1725 state:resolved] *Nicholas Dainty*
400
401 * Object#tap shim for Ruby < 1.8.7. Similar to Object#returning, tap yields self then returns self. *Jeremy Kemper*
402 array.select { ... }.tap(&:inspect).map { ... }
403
404 * TimeWithZone#- gives correct result with wrapped DateTime, and with DateTime argument *Geoff Buesing*
405
406 * Updated i18n gem to version 0.1.1 #1635 *Yaroslav Markin*
407
408 * Add :allow_nil option to delegate. #1127 *Sergio Gil*
409
410 * Add Benchmark.ms convenience method to benchmark realtime in milliseconds. *Jeremy Kemper*
411
412 * Updated included memcache-client to the 1.5.0.5 version which includes fixes from fiveruns and 37signals to deal with failover and timeouts #1535 *Joshua Sierles*
413
414 * Multibyte: add multibyte-safe Chars#ord rather than falling back to String#ord. #1483 *Jason Cheow*
415
416 * I18n support for Array#to_sentence. Introduces support.array.words_connector, .two_words_connector, and .last_word_connector translation keys. #1397 *Akira Matsuda*
417
418 * Added ActiveSupport::OrderedHash#each_key and ActiveSupport::OrderedHash#each_value #1410 *Christoffer Sawicki*
419
420 * Added ActiveSupport::MessageVerifier and MessageEncryptor to aid users who need to store signed and/or encrypted messages. *Michael Koziarski*
421

447
448 * Fix Brasilia timezone #1180 *Marcus Derencius, Kane*
449
450 * Time#advance recognizes fractional days and weeks. Deprecate Durations of fractional months and years #970 *Tom Lea*

453
454 * Switch from String#chars to String#mb_chars for the unicode proxy. *Manfred Stienstra*
455
456 This helps with 1.8.7 compatibility and also improves performance for some operations by reducing indirection.
457
458 * TimeWithZone #wday, #yday and #to_date avoid trip through #method_missing *Geoff Buesing*

465
466 * Changed cache benchmarking to be reported in milliseconds *David Heinemeier Hansson*
467

469
470 * Add Array#in_groups which splits or iterates over the array in specified number of groups. #579. [Adrian Mugnolo] Example:
471
472 a = (1..10).to_a
473 a.in_groups(3) # => [[1, 2, 3, 4], [5, 6, 7, nil], [8, 9, 10, nil]]

477
478 * Added Memoizable mixin for caching simple lazy loaded attributes *Josh Peek*
479
480 * Move the test related core_ext stuff out of core_ext so it's only loaded by the test helpers. *Michael Koziarski*

486 end
487
488 'jargon_cnt'.humanize # => 'Jargon count'
489
490 * TimeWithZone: when crossing DST boundary, treat Durations of days, months or years as variable-length, and all other values as absolute length. A time + 24.hours will advance exactly 24 hours, but a time + 1.day will advance 23-25 hours, depending on the day. Ensure consistent behavior across all advancing methods *Geoff Buesing*
491
492 * Added TimeZone #=~, to support matching zones by regex in time_zone_select. #195 *Ernie Miller*
493
494 * Added Array#second through Array#fifth as aliases for Array#[1] through Array#[4] + Array#forty_two as alias for Array[41] *David Heinemeier Hansson*

507
508 * Fixed Date#end_of_quarter to not blow up on May 31st [#289 state:resolved] (Danger)
509
510
511 ## 2.1.0 (May 31st, 2008) ##
512
513 * TimeZone#to_s shows offset as GMT instead of UTC, because GMT will be more familiar to end users (see time zone selects used by Windows OS, google.com and yahoo.com.) Reverts [8370] *Geoff Buesing*
514
515 * Hash.from_xml: datetime xml types overflow to Ruby DateTime class when out of range of Time. Adding tests for utc offsets *Geoff Buesing*
516
517 * TimeWithZone #+ and #- : ensure overflow to DateTime with Numeric arg *Geoff Buesing*
518
519 * Time#to_json: don't convert to utc before encoding. References #175 *Geoff Buesing*

521 * Remove unused JSON::RESERVED_WORDS, JSON.valid_identifier? and JSON.reserved_word? methods. Resolves #164. *Cheah Chu Yeow*
522
523 * Adding Date.current, which returns Time.zone.today if config.time_zone is set; otherwise returns Date.today *Geoff Buesing*
524
525 * TimeWithZone: date part getter methods (#year #mon #day etc) are defined on class; no longer relying on method_missing *Geoff Buesing*
526
527 * Time.zone.parse return nil for strings with no date information *Geoff Buesing*
528
529 * Time.zone.parse respects offset information in string. Resolves #105. *Scott Fleckenstein, Geoff Buesing*
530
531 * Added Ruby 1.8 implementation of Process.daemon
532
533 * Duration #since and #ago with no argument (e.g., 5.days.ago) return TimeWithZone when config.time_zone is set. Introducing Time.current, which returns Time.zone.now if config.time_zone is set, otherwise just returns Time.now *Geoff Buesing*
534
535 * Time#since behaves correctly when passed a Duration. Closes #11527 *kemiller*
536
537 * Add #getutc alias for DateTime#utc *Geoff Buesing*
538
539 * Refactor TimeWithZone: don't send #since, #ago, #+, #-, #advance through method_missing *Geoff Buesing*
540
541 * TimeWithZone respects config.active_support.use_standard_json_time_format *Geoff Buesing*

553 * TimeWithZone#method_missing: send to utc to advance with dst correctness, otherwise send to time. Adding tests for time calculations methods *Geoff Buesing*
554
555 * Add config.active_support.use_standard_json_time_format setting so that Times and Dates export to ISO 8601 dates. *Rick Olson*
556
557 * TZInfo: Removing unneeded TimezoneProxy class *Geoff Buesing*
558
559 * TZInfo: Removing unneeded TimezoneIndexDefinition, since we're not including Indexes::Timezones *Geoff Buesing*
560
561 * Removing unnecessary uses_tzinfo helper from tests, given that TZInfo is now bundled *Geoff Buesing*
562
563 * Bundling abbreviated version of TZInfo gem 0.3.8: only the classes and zone definitions required to support Rails time zone features are included. If a recent version of the full TZInfo gem is installed, this will take precedence over the bundled version *Geoff Buesing*
564
565 * TimeWithZone#marshal_load does zone lookup via Time.get_zone, so that tzinfo/Olson identifiers are handled *Geoff Buesing*
566
567 * Time.zone= accepts TZInfo::Timezone instances and Olson identifiers; wraps result in TimeZone instance *Geoff Buesing*
568
569 * TimeWithZone time conversions don't need to be wrapped in TimeOrDateTime, because TZInfo does this internally *Geoff Buesing*
570
571 * TimeWithZone#usec returns 0 instead of error when DateTime is wrapped *Geoff Buesing*
572
573 * Improve documentation. *Ryan Bigg, Jan De Poorter, Cheah Chu Yeow, Xavier Shay, Jack Danger Canty, Emilio Tagua, Xavier Noria, Sunny Ripert*
574
575 * Ensure that TimeWithZone#to_yaml works when passed a YAML::Emitter. *Rick Olson*
576
577 * Ensure correct TimeWithZone#to_date *Geoff Buesing*
578
579 * Make TimeWithZone work with tzinfo 0.2.x: use TZInfo::Timezone#zone_identifier alias for #abbreviation, silence warnings on tests. Raise LoadError when TZInfo version is < 0.2 by sniffing for TZInfo::TimeOrDateTime constant. Move all tzinfo-dependent TimeZone tests into uses_tzinfo block *Geoff Buesing*
580
581 * Time, DateTime and TimeWithZone #in_time_zone defaults to Time.zone. Removing now unneeded #in_current_time_zone *Geoff Buesing*
582
583 * TZInfo caches Timezone instances in its own internal hash cache, so TimeZone::MAPPING doesn't need to cache them as well *Geoff Buesing*
584
585 * Adding TimeZone#parse *Geoff Buesing*
586
587 * Adding TimeZone#at and DateTime#to_f *Geoff Buesing*
588
589 * TimeWithZone responds to Ruby 1.9 weekday-named query methods *Geoff Buesing*
590
591 * TimeWithZone caches TZInfo::TimezonePeriod used for time conversion so that it can be reused, and enforces DST rules correctly when instance is created from a local time *Geoff Buesing*
592
593 * Fixed that BufferedLogger should create its own directory if one doesn't already exist #11285 *lotswholetime*
594
595 * Fix Numeric time tests broken by DST change by anchoring them to fixed times instead of Time.now. Anchor TimeZone#now DST test to time specified with Time.at instead of Time.local to work around platform differences with Time.local and DST representation *Geoff Buesing*
596
597 * Removing unneeded #change_time_zone method from Time, DateTime and TimeWithZone *Geoff Buesing*
598
599 * TimeZone #local and #now correctly enforce DST rules *Geoff Buesing*

602
603 * test_time_with_datetime_fallback expects DateTime.local_offset instead of DateTime.now.offset *Geoff Buesing*
604
605 * Adding TimeWithZone #marshal_dump and #marshal_load *Geoff Buesing*
606
607 * Add OrderedHash#to_hash *Josh Peek*
608

610
611 * Adding TimeWithZone#between? *Geoff Buesing*
612
613 * Time.=== returns true for TimeWithZone instances *Geoff Buesing*
614
615 * TimeWithZone #+ and #- behave consistently with numeric arguments regardless of whether wrapped time is a Time or DateTime; consistenty answers false to #acts_like?(:date) *Geoff Buesing*
616
617 * Add String#squish and String#squish! to remove consecutive chunks of whitespace. #11123 *Jordi Bunster, Henrik N*
618
619 * Serialize BigDecimals as Floats when using to_yaml. #8746 *Ernesto Jimenez*
620
621 * Adding TimeWithZone #to_yaml, #to_datetime, #eql? and method aliases for duck-typing compatibility with Time *Geoff Buesing*
622
623 * TimeWithZone #in_time_zone returns +self+ if zone argument is the same as #time_zone *Geoff Buesing*
624
625 * Adding TimeWithZone #to_a, #to_f, #to_i, #httpdate, #rfc2822 *Geoff Buesing*
626
627 * Pruning unneeded TimeWithZone#change_time_zone_to_current *Geoff Buesing*
628
629 * Time#zone=, #in_time_zone and #change_time_zone accept a Duration *Geoff Buesing*
630
631 * Time#in_time_zone handles Time.local instances correctly *Geoff Buesing*
632
633 * Pruning unneeded Time#change_time_zone_to_current. Enhanced docs to #change_time_zone to explain the difference between this method and #in_time_zone *Geoff Buesing*
634
635 * TimeZone#new method renamed #local; when used with Time.zone, constructor now reads: Time.zone.local() *Geoff Buesing*
636
637 * Added Base64.encode64s to encode values in base64 without the newlines. This makes the values immediately usable as URL parameters or memcache keys without further processing *David Heinemeier Hansson*
638
639 * Remove :nodoc: entries around the ActiveSupport test/unit assertions. #10946 *dancroak, jamesh*
640
641 * Add Time.zone_default accessor for setting the default time zone. Rails::Configuration.time_zone sets this. #10982 *Geoff Buesing*
642
643 * cache.fetch(key, :force => true) to force a cache miss. *Jeremy Kemper*
644
645 * Support retrieving TimeZones with a Duration. TimeZone[-28800] == TimeZone[-480.minutes]. *Rick Olson*
646
647 * TimeWithZone#- added, so that #- can handle a Time or TimeWithZone argument correctly *Geoff Buesing*
648
649 * with_timezone test helper renamed with_env_tz, to distinguish between setting ENV['TZ'] and setting Time.zone in tests *Geoff Buesing*
650
651 * Time#- coerces TimeWithZone argument to a Time instance so that difference in seconds can be calculated. Closes #10914 *Geoff Buesing, yyyc514*
652
653 * Adding UTC zone to TimeZone; TimeWithZone no longer has to fake UTC zone with nil *Geoff Buesing*
654
655 * Time.get_zone refactored to private method, given that the encapsulated logic is only useful internally *Geoff Buesing*
656
657 * Time.zone uses thread-local variable for thread safety. Adding Time.use_zone, for overriding Time.zone locally inside a block. Removing unneeded Time.zone_reset! *Geoff Buesing*
658
659 * TimeZone#to_s uses UTC rather than GMT; reapplying change that was undone in [8679]. #1689 *Cheah Chu Yeow*
660
661 * Time.days_in_month defaults to current year if no year is supplied as argument #10799 [Radar], uses Date.gregorian_leap? to determine leap year, and uses constant lookup to determine days in month *Geoff Buesing*
662
663 * Adding Time and DateTime #compare_with_coercion, which layers behavior on #<=> so that any combination of Time, DateTime and ActiveSupport::TimeWithZone instances can be chronologically compared *Geoff Buesing*
664
665 * TimeZone#now returns an ActiveSupport::TimeWithZone *Geoff Buesing*
666
667 * Time #in_current_time_zone and #change_time_zone_to_current return self when Time.zone is nil *Geoff Buesing*
668
669 * Remove unneeded #to_datetime_default_s alias for DateTime#to_s, given that we inherit a #to_default_s from Date that does exactly the same thing *Geoff Buesing*
670
671 * Refactor Time and DateTime #to_formatted_s: use ternary instead of nested if/else *Geoff Buesing*
672
673 * Adding Time and DateTime #formatted_offset, for outputting +HH:MM utc offset strings with cross-platform consistency *Geoff Buesing*
674
675 * Adding alternate_utc_string option to TimeZone#formatted_offset. Removing unneeded TimeZone#offset. *Geoff Buesing*
676
677 * Introduce ActiveSupport::TimeWithZone, for wrapping Time instances with a TimeZone. Introduce instance methods to Time for creating TimeWithZone instances, and class methods for managing a global time zone. *Geoff Buesing*
678
679 * Replace non-dst-aware TimeZone class with dst-aware class from tzinfo_timezone plugin. TimeZone#adjust and #unadjust are no longer available; tzinfo gem must now be present in order to perform time zone calculations, via #local_to_utc and #utc_to_local methods. *Geoff Buesing*
680
681 * Extract ActiveSupport::Callbacks from Active Record, test case setup and teardown, and ActionController::Dispatcher. #10727 *Josh Peek*
682
683 * Introducing DateTime #utc, #utc? and #utc_offset, for duck-typing compatibility with Time. Closes #10002 *Geoff Buesing*
684
685 * Time#to_json uses Numeric#to_utc_offset_s to output a cross-platform-consistent representation without having to convert to DateTime. References #9750 *Geoff Buesing*
686
687 * Refactor number-to-HH:MM-string conversion logic from TimeZone#formatted_offset to a reusable Numeric#to_utc_offset_s method. *Geoff Buesing*
688
689 * Continue evolution toward ActiveSupport::TestCase. #10679 *Josh Peek*
690
691 * TestCase: introduce declared setup and teardown callbacks. Pass a list of methods and an optional block to call before setup or after teardown. Setup callbacks are run in the order declared; teardown callbacks are run in reverse. *Jeremy Kemper*
692
693 * Added ActiveSupport::Gzip.decompress/compress(source) as an easy wrapper for Zlib *Tobias Lütke*
694
695 * Included MemCache-Client to make the improved ActiveSupport::Cache::MemCacheStore work out of the box *Bob Cottrell, Eric Hodel*
696
697 ## Added ActiveSupport::Cache:: framework as an extraction from ActionController::Caching::Fragments:: David Heinemeier Hansson ##

702
703 * remove multiple enumerations from ActiveSupport::JSON#convert_json_to_yaml when dealing with date/time values. *Rick Olson*
704
705 * Hash#symbolize_keys skips keys that can't be symbolized. #10500 *Brad Greenlee*
706
707 * Ruby 1.9 compatibility. #1689, #10466, #10468, #10554, #10594, #10632 *Cheah Chu Yeow, Pratik Naik, Jeremy Kemper, Dirkjan Bussink, Xavier Noria*
708
709 * TimeZone#to_s uses UTC rather than GMT. #1689 *Cheah Chu Yeow*
710
711 * Refactor of Hash#symbolize_keys! to use Hash#replace. Closes #10420 *ReinH*
712
713 * Fix HashWithIndifferentAccess#to_options! so it doesn't clear the options hash. Closes #10419 *ReinH*
714
715

725
726 * Speedup String#blank? *Jeremy Kemper, Michael Koziarski*
727
728 * Add documentation for Hash#diff. Closes #9306 *Tarmo Tänav*

733
734 * Fix JSON encoding/decoding bugs dealing with /'s. Closes #9990 *Rick Olson, theamazingrando*
735
736 * Introduce a base class for all test cases used by rails applications. ActiveSupport::TestCase *Michael Koziarski*
737
738 The intention is to use this to reduce the amount of monkeypatching / overriding that
739 is done to test/unit's classes.
740
741 * Document Enumerable and Hash #to_json. #9970 *Cheah Chu Yeow*
742
743 * Hash#to_xml handles symbol values. #9954 *Assaf*
744
745 * Hash#symbolize_keys behaves well with integer keys. #9890 *PotatoSalad*
746
747 * Multibyte: String#slice supports regexp argument. #9646 *yob*
748
749 * object.duplicable? returns true if object.dup is safe. False for nil, true, false, symbols, and numbers; true otherwise. #9333 *sur*
750
751 * Time, Date and DateTime #advance accept :weeks option. #9866 *Geoff Buesing*
752
753 * Fix Time#years_ago and #years_since from leap days. #9865 *Geoff Buesing*

760
761 * Rebundle Builder 2.1.2 but prefer a newer RubyGem if available. *Jeremy Kemper*
762
763 * Add Range#overlaps?(range), Range#include?(range), and Range#step without a block. *brandon*
764
765 * Correct BufferedLogger#level? checks. #9806 *wildchild, Johan Sorensen*

768
769 * Introduce BasicObject as Builder::BlankSlate for Ruby 1.9 forward compatibility. *Jeremy Kemper*
770
771 * Unbundle Builder in favor of a gem dependency. *Jeremy Kemper*
772
773 * Disambiguate Time, Date, and DateTime#to_json formatting. #9750 *Geoff Buesing, Cheah Chu Yeow*
774
775 * Hash#to_json takes :only or :except options to specific or omit certain hash keys. Enumerable#to_json passes through its options to each element. #9751 *Cheah Chu Yeow*
776
777 * BufferedLogger#auto_flushing = N flushes the log every N messages. Buffers with an array instead of string. Disabling auto_flushing still flushes when the buffer hits a maximum size, as a failsafe against memory-gobbling. *Jeremy Kemper*
778
779 * Fixed Date#xmlschema for dates outside the range of what can be created with Time #9744 *Geoff Buesing*
780
781 * Fixed that La Paz was included in -25200 and -14400 offsets when it should only be in -14400 #9735 *bermi*

791 * Added ActiveSupport::BufferedLogger as a duck-typing alternative (albeit with no formatter) to the Ruby Logger, which provides a very nice speed bump (inspired by Ezra's buffered logger) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
792
793 * Object#instance_exec produces fewer garbage methods. *Mauricio Fernandez*
794
795 * Decode json strings as Dates/Times if they're using a YAML-compatible format. Closes #9614 *Rick Olson*

838
839 * Added proper handling of arrays #8537 *Josh Susser*
840
841 Before:
842 Hash.from_xml '<images></images>'
843 # => {:images => nil}
844
845 Hash.from_xml '<images><image>foo.jpg</image></images>'
846 # => {:images => {:image => "foo.jpg"}}
847
848 Hash.from_xml '<images><image>foo.jpg</image><image>bar.jpg</image></images>'
849 # => {:images => {:image => ["foo.jpg", "bar.jpg"]}}
850
851 After:
852 Hash.from_xml '<images type="array"></images>'
853 # => {:images => []}
854
855 Hash.from_xml '<images type="array"><image>foo.jpg</image></images>'
856 # => {:images => ["foo.jpg"]}
857
858 Hash.from_xml '<images type="array"><image>foo.jpg</image><image>bar.jpg</image></images>'
859 # => {:images => ["foo.jpg", "bar.jpg"]}
860
861 * Improve Time and Date test coverage. #8646 *Josh Peek*
862
863 * Add Date#since, ago, beginning_of_day, and end_of_day. Date + seconds works now. #8575 *Geoff Buesing*
864
865 * String#to_time overflows to DateTime. Add String#to_datetime. #8572 *Geoff Buesing*
866
867 * Date.yesterday and .tomorrow. #8571 *Geoff Buesing*
868
869 * Readable Date and DateTime#inspect. #8570 *Geoff Buesing*
870
871 * Move common DateTime calculations to Date. #8536 *Geoff Buesing*
872
873 * Added Date#change (like Time#change) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
874
875 * DateTime#to_time converts to Time unless out of range. #8512 *Geoff Buesing*
876
877 * Date#to_datetime, #to_s(:rfc822). #8512 *Geoff Buesing*
878
879 * Time durations use since instead of + for accuracy. #8513 *Geoff Buesing*
880
881 * escape <'s and >'s in JSON strings. #8371 *Rick Olson*
882
883 * Inflections: MatrixTest -> MatrixTests instead of MatricesTest. #8496 *jbwiv*
884
885 * Multibyte strings respond_to the String methods they proxy so they can be duck-typed. #6549 *Tuxie*
886
887 * Array#to_xml yields the builder just like Hash and ActiveRecord::Base. #8472 *seth*
888
889 * Date, Time, and DateTime support formatting blocks in addition to strftime strings. Introduce :long_ordinal format, e.g. "February 21st, 2005". #8191 *Coda Hale*
890
891 * Document Object#blank?. #6491 *Chris Mear*
892
893 * Date, Time, and DateTime#to_json. #8399 *wycats*
894
895 * Simplify API of assert_difference by passing in an expression that is evaluated before and after the passed in block. See documenation for examples of new API. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
896
897 * Added assert_difference and assert_no_difference to test/unit assertions *Tobias Lütke*
898
899 * Removed breakpointer and Binding.of_caller in favor of relying on ruby-debug by Kent Sibilev since the breakpointer has been broken since Ruby 1.8.4 and will not be coming back *David Heinemeier Hansson*
900
901 * Added parsing of file type in Hash.xml_in so you can easily do file uploads with base64 from an API *David Heinemeier Hansson*
902
903 <person>
904 <name>David</name>
905 <avatar type="file" name="me.jpg" content_type="image/jpg">R0lGODlhkACZAPUAAM5lcfjrtMQCG=\n</avatar>
906 </person>
907
908 ...becomes:
909
910 attributes = { :person => { :name => "David", :avatar => #<StringIO> } }
911 attributes[:person][:avatar].content_type # => "image/jpg"
912 attributes[:person][:avatar].original_filename # => "me.jpg"
913 attributes[:person][:avatar].read # => binary data of the file
914
915 Which is duck-type compatible with the files that you get when doing multipart uploads through HTML.
916
917 * Improved multibyte performance by relying less on exception raising #8159 *Blaine*
918
919 * Use XSD-compatible type names for Hash#to_xml and make the converters extendable #8047 *Tim Pope*
920
921 * Added yielding of builder in Hash#to_xml *David Heinemeier Hansson*
922
923 * Hash#with_indifferent_access now also converts hashes kept in arrays to indifferent access (makes it easier to treat HTML and XML parameters the same) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
924
925 * Hash#to_xml supports YAML attributes. #7502 *jonathan*
926
927 * Refactor ActiveSupport::JSON to be less obtuse. Add support for JSON decoding by way of Syck with ActiveSupport::JSON.decode(json_string). Prevent hash keys that are JavaScript reserved words from being unquoted during encoding. *Sam Stephenson*
928
929 * alias_method_chain preserves the original method's visibility. #7854 *Jonathan Viney*
930
931 * Update Dependencies to ignore constants inherited from ancestors. Closes #6951. *Nicholas Seckar*
932
933 * Array#to_query preserves its ordering. #7756 *Greg Spurrier*
934
935 * Out-of-range Time calculations transparently overflow to DateTime. Introduce Time#to_datetime. #7706, #7715 *Geoff Buesing*
936
937 * DateTime calculations analogous to the Date and Time extensions. #7693 *Geoff Buesing*
938
939 * Give DateTime correct .to_s implementations, lets it play nice with ActiveRecord quoting. #7649 *Geoff Buesing*
940
941 * Add File.atomic_write, allows you to write large files in an atomic manner, preventing users from seeing half written files. *Michael Koziarski*
942
943 * Allow users to provide custom formatters to Logger. *Anthony Eden*
944
945 * Hash#to_query CGI-escapes its keys. *Jeremy Kemper*
946
947 * Optimize Class Inheritable Attributes so that unnecessary hashes are not created. Closes #7472 *Bruce Perens*
948
949 * :db format for Date#to_s *Jeremy Kemper*
950 Date.new(2007, 1, 27).to_s(:db) # => '2007-01-27'
951
952 * Added :instance_writer option to #mattr_writer/accessor, #cattr_writer/accessor, and #class_inheritable_writer to skip the creation of the instance writer. *Rick Olson*
953
954 * Added Hash#to_query to turn a hash of values into a form-encoded query string *Nicholas Seckar*
955
956 * Increase test coverage for subclasses_of. Closes #7335. *Roman2K, Nicholas Seckar*

961
962 * ActiveSupport::Multibyte::Handlers::UTF8Handler should raise when a range and an integer are passed in (just like the native implementation). Closes #7176 *Rich Collins*
963
964 * A couple extra tests for #classify. Closes #7273. *Josh Susser*
965
966 * Better docs for Object extensions *zackchandler, Jamis Buck*
967
968 * Fix that Dates couldn't be subtracted from Dates after [5940]. *Sam Stephenson*
969
970 * Add Object#acts_like? and Time#acts_like_time? and Date#acts_like_date? to facilitate duck-typing. *Jamis Buck*
971
972 * Make 1.months and friends accurate by introducing a Duration class. #6835 *eventualbuddha*
973
974
975 ## 1.4.2 (March 12th, 2007) ##
976
977 * Ruby 1.8.6 and 1.9 define private Time#to_date and #to_datetime; make them
978 public for compatibility. *Jeremy Kemper*
979
980 * Deprecation: warn on stderr if RAILS_DEFAULT_LOGGER isn't set yet. *Jeremy Kemper*
981
982
983 ## 1.4.1 (February 5th, 2007) ##
984

1000 * Update load once paths to prevent nested once constants from being detected and claimed by an external non-once load. *Nicholas Seckar*
1001
1002 * Deprecation: silence warnings when reporting test errors. *Jeremy Kemper*
1003
1004 * Hash#slice(*keys) returns a new hash with only the given keys. #slice! replaces the hash with only the given keys. Works with HashWithIndifferentAccess also. *Jeremy Kemper*
1005
1006 * HashWithIndifferentAccess#to_hash converts to a Hash with String keys and the same default value. *Jeremy Kemper*
1007
1008 * Fix remove_constant to correctly handle constant names of the form "::A::...". References #6720. *Nicholas Seckar*
1009
1010 * Fixed Array#to_xml when it contains a series of hashes (each piece would get its own XML declaration) #6610 *thkarcher/cyu*
1011
1012 * Added Time#to_s(:time) which will just return H:M, like 17:44 *David Heinemeier Hansson*

1015
1016 * Hash#to_xml handles keys with the same name as Kernel methods. #6613 *Jonathan del Strother*
1017
1018 * Added Time#end_of_day to get 23:59:59 of that day *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1019
1020 * Don't quote hash keys in Hash#to_json if they're valid JavaScript identifiers. Disable this with ActiveSupport::JSON.unquote_hash_key_identifiers = false if you need strict JSON compliance. *Sam Stephenson*
1021
1022 * Lazily load the Unicode Database in the UTF-8 Handler *Rick Olson*
1023

1029
1030 * Update dependencies to allow constants to be defined alongside their siblings. A common case for this is AR model classes with STI; user.rb might define User, Administrator and Guest for example. *Nicholas Seckar*
1031
1032 * next_week respects DST changes. #6483, #5617, #2353, #2509, #4551 *marclove, Rob Biedenharn, rails@roetzel.de, jsolson@damogran.org, drbrain@segment7.net*

1043
1044 * Pull in latest multibyte patch. Closes #6346 *Manfred Stienstra*
1045
1046 * Add ActiveSupport::Multibyte. Provides String#chars which lets you deal with strings as a sequence of chars, not of bytes. Closes #6242 *Julian Tarkhanov, Manfred Stienstra, Thijs van der Vossen & Jan Behrens*
1047
1048 * Fix issue with #class_inheritable_accessor saving updates to the parent class when initialized with an Array or Hash *mojombo*
1049

1053
1054 * Hash.create_from_xml has been renamed to Hash.from_xml, alias will exist until Rails 2.0 *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1055
1056 * alias_method_chain works with accessor= methods also. #6153 *Caio Chassot*
1057
1058 * Fix loadable_constants_for_path to handle load paths that do not end with a slash. *Nicholas Seckar*
1059
1060 * Fix logic error in determining what was loaded by a given file. Closes #6039. *Nicholas Seckar*

1067
1068 * Fix cases where empty xml nodes weren't being translated to nil in Hash.create_from_xml *Rick Olso n*
1069
1070 <written-on type="date"></written-on> # => { :type => 'date' } # WRONG
1071 <written-on type="date"></written-on> # => nil # RIGHT
1072
1073 * Tighten rescue clauses. #5985 *james@grayproductions.net*
1074
1075 * Inflections: don't singularize -ies plurals. *foamdino@gmail.com, Mark Van Holstyn*
1076
1077 * Update Initializer to use load_once_paths to avoid plugin reloading. References #5852. *Nicholas Seckar*
1078
1079 * Use Array#assoc in ActiveSupport::OrderedHash. *Mauricio Fernandez*
1080
1081 * Greatly increased performance of String.to_json, which speeds up RJS considerably on large pages, fixes #3473 *Shugo Maeda*
1082
1083 * Detect missing_constants calls from removed modules and fail accordingly. *Nicholas Seckar*
1084
1085 * Stop using defined? in Dependencies.qualified_const_defined? since defined? may invoke const_missing. *Nicholas Seckar*
1086
1087 * Dependencies can autoload directories of nested classes. *Jeremy Kemper*
1088 Example:
1089 invoice.rb class Invoice
1090 invoice/lineitem.rb class Invoice::Lineitem
1091
1092 * Add Deprecation.silence so that Reloadable does not scold itself. *Nicholas Seckar*
1093
1094 * Add debugging logging to Dependencies. Currently can be enabled with Dependencies.log_activity = true; adding to Initializer and documenting is forthcoming. *Nicholas Seckar*
1095
1096 * Replace Reloadable with improvements to the Dependencies mechanism. *Nicholas Seckar*
1097
1098 * DateTime#to_time gives hour/minute/second resolution. #5747 *jon.evans@pobox.com*
1099
1100 * attr_internal to support namespacing and deprecation. Like attr_* except backed by internally-named instance variable. Set attr_internal_naming_format to change the format from the default '@_%s'. *Jeremy Kemper*
1101 # def foo() @foo__rofl end
1102 # def foo=(v) @foo__rofl = v end
1103 self.attr_internal_naming_format = '@%s__rofl'
1104 attr_internal :foo
1105
1106 * Raise fully qualified names upon name errors. #5533 *Lars Pind, Nicholas Seckar*
1107
1108 * Add extention to obtain the missing constant from NameError instances. *Nicholas Seckar*
1109
1110 * Thoroughly document inflections. #5700 *petermichaux@gmail.com*
1111
1112 * Added Module#alias_attribute [Jamis/David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1113
1114 class Content < ActiveRecord::Base
1115 # has a title attribute
1116 end
1117
1118 class Email < ActiveRecord::Base
1119 alias_attribute :subject, :title
1120 end
1121
1122 e = Email.find(1)
1123 e.title # => "Superstars"
1124 e.subject # => "Superstars"
1125 e.subject? # => true
1126 e.subject = "Megastars"
1127 e.title # => "Megastars"
1128
1129 * Deprecation: easier to work with warning behavior as procs; default behaviors for each environment so users needn't update env.rb; and testing pleasure with assert_deprecated, assert_not_deprecated. *Jeremy Kemper*
1130 By default, test prints to $stderr, dev logs, production ignores.
1131 Provide your own per-environment in e.g. config/environments/development.rb:
1132 ActiveSupport::Deprecation.behavior = Proc.new { |message| raise message }
1133
1134 * First cut of the Rails Deprecation system. *Michael Koziarski*
1135
1136 * Strip boolean XML content before checking for 'true' *Rick Olson*
1137
1138 * Customize default BigDecimal formatting. References #5672 *Dave Thomas*
1139
1140 * Correctly convert <foo nil="true"> to nil when using Hash.create_from_xml. *Rick Olson*
1141
1142 * Optional identity for Enumerable#sum defaults to zero. #5657 *gensym@mac.com*
1143
1144 * HashWithIndifferentAccess shouldn't confuse false and nil. #5601 *Shugo Maeda*
1145
1146 * Fixed HashWithIndifferentAccess#default #5586 *chris@seagul.co.uk*
1147
1148 * More compatible Hash.create_from_xml. #5523 *nunemaker@gmail.com*
1149
1150 * Added Enumerable#sum for calculating a sum from the elements [David Heinemeier Hansson, jonathan@daikini.com]. Examples:
1151
1152 [1, 2, 3].sum
1153 payments.sum { |p| p.price * p.tax_rate }
1154 payments.sum(&:price)
1155
1156 This is instead of payments.inject(0) { |sum, p| sum + p.price }
1157
1158 * Correct and clarify Array#to_sentence docs. #5458 *brad@madriska.com*
1159
1160 * alias_method_chain preserves method punctuation so foo, foo?, and foo! may be chained with the same feature. *Jeremy Kemper*
1161 Example:
1162 alias_method_chain :save!, :validation
1163 is equivalent to
1164 alias_method :save_without_validation!, :save!
1165 alias_method :save!, :save_with_validation!
1166
1167 * Enhance Symbol#to_proc so it works with list objects, such as multi-dimensional arrays. Closes #5295 [nov@yo.rim.or.jp]. Example:
1168
1169 {1 => "one", 2 => "two", 3 => "three"}.sort_by(&:first).map(&:last)
1170 # => ["one", "two", "three"]
1171
1172 * Added Hash.create_from_xml(string) which will create a hash from a XML string and even typecast if possible [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1173
1174 Hash.create_from_xml <<-EOT
1175 <note>
1176 <title>This is a note</title>
1177 <created-at type="date">2004-10-10</created-at>
1178 </note>
1179 EOT
1180
1181 ...would return:
1182
1183 { :note => { :title => "This is a note", :created_at => Date.new(2004, 10, 10) } }
1184
1185 * Added Jim Weirich's excellent FlexMock class to vendor (Copyright 2003, 2004 by Jim Weirich (jim@weriichhouse.org)) -- it's not automatically required, though, so require 'flexmock' is still necessary *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1186
1187 * Fixed that Module#alias_method_chain should work with both foo? foo! and foo at the same time #4954 *anna@wota.jp*
1188
1189 * to_xml fixes, features, and speedup: introduce :dasherize option that converts updated_at to updated-at if true (the existing default); binary columns get encoding="base64" attribute; nil values get nil="true" attribute to distinguish empty values; add type information for float columns; allow arbitrarily deep :include; include SQL type information as the type attribute. #4989 *Blair Zajac <blair@orcaware.com>*
1190
1191 * Add OrderedHash#values. *Sam Stephenson*
1192
1193 * Added Array#to_s(:db) that'll produce a comma-separated list of ids [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1194
1195 Purchase.find(:all, :conditions => "product_id IN (#{shops.products.to_s(:db)})"
1196
1197 * Normalize classify's argument to a String so that it plays nice with Symbols. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
1198
1199 * Strip out leading schema name in classify. References #5139. *Michael Schoen*
1200
1201 * Remove Enumerable#first_match since break(value) handles the use case well enough. *Nicholas Seckar*
1202
1203 Enumerable#first_match was like detect, but instead of returning the matching element, the yielded value returned. For example:
1204
1205 user_xml = adapters(:from => User, :to => Xml).first_match do |adapter|
1206 adapter.adapt @user
1207 end
1208
1209 But this is just as easily done with:
1210
1211 user_xml = adapters(:from => User, :to => Xml).each do
1212 break adapter.adapt(@user)
1213 end
1214
1215 * Make Array#in_groups_of just return the grouped collection if a block isn't given. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
1216
1217 * Don't destroy a HashWithIndifferentAccess if symbolize_keys! or stringify_keys! is called on it. Closes #5076. *Marcel Molina Jr., guy.naor@famundo.com*
1218
1219 * Document Module::delegate. #5002 *pergesu@gmail.com*
1220
1221 * Replace alias method chaining with Module#alias_method_chain. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
1222
1223 * Strip out punctuation on predicates or bang methods being aliased with alias_method_chain since target?_without_feature is not a valid method name. Add tests for Module#alias_method_chain. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
1224
1225 * Replace Ruby's deprecated append_features in favor of included. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
1226
1227 * Allow default options in with_options to be overridden. Closes #4480. *murphy@cYcnus.de*
1228
1229 * Added Module#alias_method_chain *Jamis Buck*
1230
1231 * Updated to Builder 2.0 *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1232
1233 * Add Array#split for dividing arrays into one or more subarrays by value or block. *Sam Stephenson*
1234
1235 ## 1.3.1 (April 6th, 2006) ##
1236
1237 * Clean paths inside of exception messages and traces. *Nicholas Seckar*
1238
1239 * Add Pathname.clean_within for cleaning all the paths inside of a string. *Nicholas Seckar*
1240
1241 * provide an empty Dependencies::LoadingModule.load which prints deprecation warnings. Lets 1.0 applications function with .13-style environment.rb.
1242
1243
1244 ## 1.3.0 (March 27th, 2006) ##
1245
1246 * When possible, avoid incorrectly obtaining constants from parent modules. Fixes #4221. *Nicholas Seckar*
1247
1248 * Add more tests for dependencies; refactor existing cases. *Nicholas Seckar*
1249
1250 * Move Module#parent and Module#as_load_path into core_ext. Add Module#parent. *Nicholas Seckar*
1251
1252 * Add CachingTools::HashCaching to simplify the creation of nested, autofilling hashes. *Nicholas Seckar*
1253
1254 * Remove a hack intended to avoid unloading the same class twice, but which would not work anyways. *Nicholas Seckar*
1255
1256 * Update Object.subclasses_of to locate nested classes. This affects Object.remove_subclasses_of in that nested classes will now be unloaded. *Nicholas Seckar*
1257
1258 * Update Object.remove_subclasses_of to use Class.remove_class, reducing duplication. *Nicholas Seckar*
1259
1260 * Added Fixnum#seconds for consistency, so you can say 5.minutes + 30.seconds instead of 5.minutes + 30 #4389 *François Beausoleil*
1261
1262 * Added option to String#camelize to generate lower-cased camel case by passing in :lower, like "super_man".camelize(:lower) # => "superMan" *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1263
1264 * Added Hash#diff to show the difference between two hashes *Chris McGrath*
1265
1266 * Added Time#advance to do precise time time calculations for cases where a month being approximated to 30 days won't do #1860 *Rick Olson*
1267
1268 * Enhance Inflector.underscore to convert '-' into '_' (as the inverse of Inflector.dasherize) *Jamis Buck*
1269
1270 * Switched to_xml to use the xml schema format for datetimes. This allows the encoding of time zones and should improve operability. *Michael Koziarski*
1271
1272 * Added a note to the documentation for the Date related Numeric extensions to indicate that they're
1273 approximations and shouldn't be used for critical calculations. *Michael Koziarski*
1274
1275 * Added Hash#to_xml and Array#to_xml that makes it much easier to produce XML from basic structures [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
1276
1277 { :name => "David", :street_name => "Paulina", :age => 26, :moved_on => Date.new(2005, 11, 15) }.to_xml
1278
1279 ...returns:
1280
1281 <person>
1282 <street-name>Paulina</street-name>
1283 <name>David</name>
1284 <age type="integer">26</age>
1285 <moved-on type="date">2005-11-15</moved-on>
1286 </person>
1287
1288 * Moved Jim Weirich's wonderful Builder from Action Pack to Active Support (it's simply too useful to be stuck in AP) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1289
1290 * Fixed that Array#to_sentence will return "" on an empty array instead of ", and" #3842, #4031 *rubyonrails@beautifulpixel.com*
1291
1292 * Add Enumerable#group_by for grouping collections based on the result of some
1293 block. Useful, for example, for grouping records by date.
1294
1295 ex.
1296
1297 latest_transcripts.group_by(&:day).each do |day, transcripts|
1298 p "#{day} -> #{transcripts.map(&:class) * ', '}"
1299 end
1300 "2006-03-01 -> Transcript"
1301 "2006-02-28 -> Transcript"
1302 "2006-02-27 -> Transcript, Transcript"
1303 "2006-02-26 -> Transcript, Transcript"
1304
1305 Add Array#in_groups_of, for iterating over an array in groups of a certain
1306 size.
1307
1308 ex.
1309
1310 %w(1 2 3 4 5 6 7).in_groups_of(3) {|g| p g}
1311 ["1", "2", "3"]
1312 ["4", "5", "6"]
1313 ["7", nil, nil]
1314
1315 *Marcel Molina Jr., Sam Stephenson*
1316
1317 * Added Kernel#daemonize to turn the current process into a daemon that can be killed with a TERM signal *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1318
1319 * Add 'around' methods to Logger, to make it easy to log before and after messages for a given block as requested in #3809. [Michael Koziarski] Example:
1320
1321 logger.around_info("Start rendering component (#{options.inspect}): ",
1322 "\n\nEnd of component rendering") { yield }
1323
1324 * Added Time#beginning_of_quarter #3607 *cohen.jeff@gmail.com*
1325
1326 * Fix Object.subclasses_of to only return currently defined objects *Jonathan Viney <jonathan@bluewire.net.nz>*
1327
1328 * Fix constantize to properly handle names beginning with '::'. *Nicholas Seckar*
1329
1330 * Make String#last return the string instead of nil when it is shorter than the limit [Scott Barron].
1331
1332 * Added delegation support to Module that allows multiple delegations at once (unlike Forwardable in the stdlib) [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1333
1334 class Account < ActiveRecord::Base
1335 has_one :subscription
1336 delegate :free?, :paying?, :to => :subscription
1337 delegate :overdue?, :to => "subscription.last_payment"
1338 end
1339
1340 account.free? # => account.subscription.free?
1341 account.overdue? # => account.subscription.last_payment.overdue?
1342
1343 * Fix Reloadable to handle the case where a class that has been 'removed' has not yet been garbage collected. *Nicholas Seckar*
1344
1345 * Don't allow Reloadable to be included into Modules.
1346
1347 * Remove LoadingModule. *Nicholas Seckar*
1348
1349 * Add documentation for Reloadable::Subclasses. *Nicholas Seckar*
1350
1351 * Add Reloadable::Subclasses which handles the common case where a base class should not be reloaded, but its subclasses should be. *Nicholas Seckar*
1352
1353 * Further improvements to reloading code *Nicholas Seckar, Trevor Squires*
1354
1355 - All classes/modules which include Reloadable can define reloadable? for fine grained control of reloading
1356 - Class.remove_class uses Module#parent to access the parent module
1357 - Class.remove_class expanded to handle multiple classes in a single call
1358 - LoadingModule.clear! has been removed as it is no longer required
1359 - Module#remove_classes_including has been removed in favor of Reloadable.reloadable_classes
1360
1361 * Added reusable reloading support through the inclusion of the Relodable module that all subclasses of ActiveRecord::Base, ActiveRecord::Observer, ActiveController::Base, and ActionMailer::Base automatically gets. This means that these classes will be reloaded by the dispatcher when Dependencies.mechanism = :load. You can make your own models reloadable easily:
1362
1363 class Setting
1364 include Reloadable
1365 end
1366
1367 Reloading a class is done by removing its constant which will cause it to be loaded again on the next reference. *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1368
1369 * Added auto-loading support for classes in modules, so Conductor::Migration will look for conductor/migration.rb and Conductor::Database::Settings will look for conductor/database/settings.rb *Nicholas Seckar*
1370
1371 * Add Object#instance_exec, like instance_eval but passes its arguments to the block. (Active Support will not override the Ruby 1.9 implementation of this method.) *Sam Stephenson*
1372
1373 * Add Proc#bind(object) for changing a proc or block's self by returning a Method bound to the given object. Based on why the lucky stiff's "cloaker" method. *Sam Stephenson*
1374
1375 * Fix merge and dup for hashes with indifferent access #3404 *Ken Miller*
1376
1377 * Fix the requires in option_merger_test to unbreak AS tests. *Sam Stephenson*
1378
1379 * Make HashWithIndifferentAccess#update behave like Hash#update by returning the hash. #3419, #3425 *asnem@student.ethz.ch, JanPrill@blauton.de, Marcel Molina Jr.*
1380
1381 * Add ActiveSupport::JSON and Object#to_json for converting Ruby objects to JSON strings. *Sam Stephenson*
1382
1383 * Add Object#with_options for DRYing up multiple calls to methods having shared options. [Sam Stephenson] Example:
1384
1385 ActionController::Routing::Routes.draw do |map|
1386 # Account routes
1387 map.with_options(:controller => 'account') do |account|
1388 account.home '', :action => 'dashboard'
1389 account.signup 'signup', :action => 'new'
1390 account.logout 'logout', :action => 'logout'
1391 end
1392 end
1393
1394 * Introduce Dependencies.warnings_on_first_load setting. If true, enables warnings on first load of a require_dependency. Otherwise, loads without warnings. Disabled (set to false) by default. *Jeremy Kemper*
1395
1396 * Active Support is warnings-safe. #1792 *Eric Hodel*
1397
1398 * Introduce enable_warnings counterpart to silence_warnings. Turn warnings on when loading a file for the first time if Dependencies.mechanism == :load. Common mistakes such as redefined methods will print warnings to stderr. *Jeremy Kemper*
1399
1400 * Add Symbol#to_proc, which allows for, e.g. [:foo, :bar].map(&:to_s). *Marcel Molina Jr.*
1401
1402 * Added the following methods [Marcel Molina Jr., Sam Stephenson]:
1403 * Object#copy_instance_variables_from(object) to copy instance variables from one object to another
1404 * Object#extended_by to get an instance's included/extended modules
1405 * Object#extend_with_included_modules_from(object) to extend an instance with the modules from another instance
1406
1407 ## 1.2.5 (December 13th, 2005) ##
1408
1409 * Become part of Rails 1.0
1410
1411 * Rename Version constant to VERSION. #2802 *Marcel Molina Jr.*
1412
1413 ## 1.2.3 (November 7th, 2005) ##
1414
1415 * Change Inflector#constantize to use eval instead of const_get. *Nicholas Seckar*
1416
1417 * Fix const_missing handler to ignore the trailing '.rb' on files when comparing paths. *Nicholas Seckar*
1418
1419 * Define kernel.rb methods in "class Object" instead of "module Kernel" to work around a Windows peculiarity *Sam Stephenson*
1420
1421 * Fix broken tests caused by incomplete loading of active support. *Nicholas Seckar*
1422
1423 * Fix status pluralization bug so status_codes doesn't get pluralized as statuses_code. #2758 *keithm@infused.org*
1424
1425 * Added Kernel#silence_stderr to silence stderr for the duration of the given block *Sam Stephenson*
1426
1427 * Changed Kernel#` to print a message to stderr (like Unix) instead of raising Errno::ENOENT on Win32 *Sam Stephenson*
1428
1429 * Changed 0.blank? to false rather than true since it violates everyone's expectation of blankness. #2518, #2705 *rails@jeffcole.net*
1430
1431 * When loading classes using const_missing, raise a NameError if and only if the file we tried to load was not present. *Nicholas Seckar*
1432
1433 * Added petabytes and exebytes to numeric extensions #2397 *timct@mac.com*
1434
1435 * Added Time#end_of_month to accompany Time#beginning_of_month #2514 *Jens-Christian Fischer*
1436
1437
1438 ## 1.2.2 (October 26th, 2005) ##
1439
1440 * Set Logger.silencer = false to disable Logger#silence. Useful for debugging fixtures.
1441
1442 * Add title case method to String to do, e.g., 'action_web_service'.titlecase # => 'Action Web Service'. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
1443
1444
1445 ## 1.2.1 (October 19th, 2005) ##
1446
1447 * Classify generated routing code as framework code to avoid appearing in application traces. *Nicholas Seckar*
1448
1449 * Show all framework frames in the framework trace. *Nicholas Seckar*
1450
1451
1452 ## 1.2.0 (October 16th, 2005) ##
1453
1454 * Update Exception extension to show the first few framework frames in an application trace. *Nicholas Seckar*
1455
1456 * Added Exception extension to provide support for clean backtraces. *Nicholas Seckar*
1457
1458 * Updated whiny nil to be more concise and useful. *Nicholas Seckar*
1459
1460 * Added Enumerable#first_match *Nicholas Seckar*
1461
1462 * Fixed that Time#change should also reset usec when also resetting minutes #2459 *ikeda@dream.big.or.jp*
1463
1464 * Fix Logger compatibility for distributions that don't keep Ruby and its standard library in sync.
1465
1466 * Replace '%e' from long and short time formats as Windows does not support it. #2344. *Tom Ward <tom@popdog.net>*
1467
1468 * Added to_s(:db) to Range, so you can get "BETWEEN '2005-12-10' AND '2005-12-12'" from Date.new(2005, 12, 10)..Date.new(2005, 12, 12) (and likewise with Times)
1469
1470 * Moved require_library_or_gem into Kernel. #1992 *Michael Schuerig <michael@schuerig.de>*
1471
1472 * Add :rfc822 as an option for Time#to_s (to get rfc822-formatted times)
1473
1474 * Chain the const_missing hook to any previously existing hook so rails can play nicely with rake
1475
1476 * Clean logger is compatible with both 1.8.2 and 1.8.3 Logger. #2263 *Michael Schuerig <michael@schuerig.de>*
1477
1478 * Added native, faster implementations of .blank? for the core types #2286 *skae*
1479
1480 * Fixed clean logger to work with Ruby 1.8.3 Logger class #2245
1481
1482 * Fixed memory leak with Active Record classes when Dependencies.mechanism = :load #1704 *Chris McGrath*
1483
1484 * Fixed Inflector.underscore for use with acronyms, so HTML becomes html instead of htm_l #2173 *k@v2studio.com*
1485
1486 * Fixed dependencies related infinite recursion bug when a controller file does not contain a controller class. Closes #1760. *rcolli2@tampabay.rr.com*
1487
1488 * Fixed inflections for status, quiz, move #2056 *deirdre@deirdre.net*
1489
1490 * Added Hash#reverse_merge, Hash#reverse_merge!, and Hash#reverse_update to ease the use of default options
1491
1492 * Added Array#to_sentence that'll turn ['one', 'two', 'three'] into "one, two, and three" #2157 *Manfred Stienstra*
1493
1494 * Added Kernel#silence_warnings to turn off warnings temporarily for the passed block
1495
1496 * Added String#starts_with? and String#ends_with? #2118 *Thijs van der Vossen*
1497
1498 * Added easy extendability to the inflector through Inflector.inflections (using the Inflector::Inflections singleton class). Examples:
1499
1500 Inflector.inflections do |inflect|
1501 inflect.plural /^(ox)$/i, '\1\2en'
1502 inflect.singular /^(ox)en/i, '\1'
1503
1504 inflect.irregular 'octopus', 'octopi'
1505
1506 inflect.uncountable "equipment"
1507 end
1508
1509 * Added String#at, String#from, String#to, String#first, String#last in ActiveSupport::CoreExtensions::String::Access to ease access to individual characters and substrings in a string serving basically as human names for range access.
1510
1511 * Make Time#last_month work when invoked on the 31st of a month.
1512
1513 * Add Time.days_in_month, and make Time#next_month work when invoked on the 31st of a month
1514
1515 * Fixed that Time#midnight would have a non-zero usec on some platforms #1836
1516
1517 * Fixed inflections of "index/indices" #1766 *damn_pepe@gmail.com*
1518
1519 * Added stripping of _id to String#humanize, so "employee_id" becomes "Employee" #1574 *Justin French*
1520
1521 * Factor Fixnum and Bignum extensions into Integer extensions *Nicholas Seckar*
1522
1523 * Hooked #ordinalize into Fixnum and Bignum classes. *Nicholas Seckar, danp*

1526
1527
1528 ## 1.1.1 (11 July, 2005) ##

1531
1532
1533 ## 1.1.0 (6 July, 2005) ##
1534
1535 * Fixed conflict with Glue gem #1606 *Rick Olson*
1536
1537 * Added new rules to the Inflector to deal with more unusual plurals mouse/louse => mice/lice, information => information, ox => oxen, virus => viri, archive => archives #1571, #1583, #1490, #1599, #1608 *foamdino@gmail.com/others*
1538
1539 * Fixed memory leak with Object#remove_subclasses_of, which inflicted a Rails application running in development mode with a ~20KB leak per request #1289 *Chris McGrath*
1540
1541 * Made 1.year == 365.25.days to account for leap years. This allows you to do User.find(:all, :conditions => ['birthday > ?', 50.years.ago]) without losing a lot of days. #1488 *tuxie@dekadance.se*
1542
1543 * Added an exception if calling id on nil to WhinyNil #584 *kevin-temp@writesoon.com*
1544
1545 * Added Fix/Bignum#multiple_of? which returns true on 14.multiple_of?(7) and false on 16.multiple_of?(7) #1464 *Thomas Fuchs*
1546
1547 * Added even? and odd? to work with Bignums in addition to Fixnums #1464 *Thomas Fuchs*
1548
1549 * Fixed Time#at_beginning_of_week returned the next Monday instead of the previous one when called on a Sunday #1403 *jean.helou@gmail.com*
1550
1551 * Increased the speed of indifferent hash access by using Hash#default. #1436 *Nicholas Seckar*
1552
1553 * Added that " " is now also blank? (using strip if available)
1554
1555 * Fixed Dependencies so all modules are able to load missing constants #1173 *Nicholas Seckar*
1556
1557 * Fixed the Inflector to underscore strings containing numbers, so Area51Controller becomes area51_controller #1176 *Nicholas Seckar*
1558
1559 * Fixed that HashWithIndifferentAccess stringified all keys including symbols, ints, objects, and arrays #1162 *Nicholas Seckar*
1560
1561 * Fixed Time#last_year to go back in time, not forward #1278 *fabien@odilat.com*
1562
1563 * Fixed the pluralization of analysis to analyses #1295 *seattle@rootimage.msu.edu*
1564
1565 * Fixed that Time.local(2005,12).months_since(1) would raise "ArgumentError: argument out of range" #1311 *jhahn@niveon.com*
1566
1567 * Added silencing to the default Logger class
1568
1569
1570 ## 1.0.4 (19th April, 2005) ##
1571
1572 * Fixed that in some circumstances controllers outside of modules may have hidden ones inside modules. For example, admin/content might have been hidden by /content. #1075 *Nicholas Seckar*
1573
1574 * Fixed inflection of perspectives and similar words #1045 *Thijs van der Vossen*
1575
1576 * Added Fixnum#even? and Fixnum#odd?
1577
1578 * Fixed problem with classes being required twice. Object#const_missing now uses require_dependency to load files. It used to use require_or_load which would cause models to be loaded twice, which was not good for validations and other class methods #971 *Nicholas Seckar*
1579
1580
1581 ## 1.0.3 (27th March, 2005) ##
1582
1583 * Fixed Inflector.pluralize to handle capitalized words #932 *Jeremy Kemper*
1584
1585 * Added Object#suppress which allows you to make a saner choice around with exceptions to swallow #980. Example:
1586
1587 suppress(ZeroDivisionError) { 1/0 }
1588
1589 ...instead of:
1590
1591 1/0 rescue nil # BAD, EVIL, DIRTY.
1592
1593
1594 ## 1.0.2 (22th March, 2005) ##
1595
1596 * Added Kernel#returning -- a Ruby-ized realization of the K combinator, courtesy of Mikael Brockman.
1597
1598 def foo
1599 returning values = [] do
1600 values << 'bar'
1601 values << 'baz'
1602 end
1603 end
1604
1605 foo # => ['bar', 'baz']
1606
1607
1608 ## 1.0.1 (7th March, 2005) ##
1609
1610 * Fixed Hash#indifferent_access to also deal with include? and fetch and nested hashes #726 *Nicholas Seckar*
1611
1612 * Added Object#blank? -- see http://redhanded.hobix.com/inspect/objectBlank.html #783 *_why the lucky stiff*
1613
1614 * Added inflection rules for "sh" words, like "wish" and "fish" #755 *phillip@pjbsoftware.com*
1615
1616 * Fixed an exception when using Ajax based requests from Safari because Safari appends a \000 to the post body. Symbols can't have \000 in them so indifferent access would throw an exception in the constructor. Indifferent hashes now use strings internally instead. #746 *Tobias Lütke*
1617
1618 * Added String#to_time and String#to_date for wrapping ParseDate
1619
1620
1621 ## 1.0.0 (24th February, 2005) ##
1622
1623 * Added TimeZone as the first of a number of value objects that among others Active Record can use rich value objects using composed_of #688 *Jamis Buck*
1624
1625 * Added Date::Conversions for getting dates in different convenient string representations and other objects
1626
1627 * Added Time::Conversions for getting times in different convenient string representations and other objects
1628
1629 * Added Time::Calculations to ask for things like Time.now.tomorrow, Time.now.yesterday, Time.now.months_ago(4) #580 [DP|Flurin]. Examples:
1630
1631 "Later today" => now.in(3.hours),
1632 "Tomorrow morning" => now.tomorrow.change(:hour => 9),
1633 "Tomorrow afternoon" => now.tomorrow.change(:hour => 14),
1634 "In a couple of days" => now.tomorrow.tomorrow.change(:hour => 9),
1635 "Next monday" => now.next_week.change(:hour => 9),
1636 "In a month" => now.next_month.change(:hour => 9),
1637 "In 6 months" => now.months_since(6).change(:hour => 9),
1638 "In a year" => now.in(1.year).change(:hour => 9)
1639
1640 * Upgraded to breakpoint 92 which fixes:
1641
1642 * overload IRB.parse_opts(), fixes #443
1643 => breakpoints in tests work even when running them via rake
1644 * untaint handlers, might fix an issue discussed on the Rails ML
1645 * added verbose mode to breakpoint_client
1646 * less noise caused by breakpoint_client by default
1647 * ignored TerminateLineInput exception in signal handler
1648 => quiet exit on Ctrl-C
1649
1650 * Fixed Inflector for words like "news" and "series" that are the same in plural and singular #603 [echion], #615 *marcenuc*
1651
