a0fd9fb @spastorino Add CHANGELOG entry
spastorino authored
3 * Depends on rack ~> 1.4.0 *Santiago Pastorino*
4
fc42998 @josevalim Update CHANGELOGs.
josevalim authored
5 * Add :gzip option to `caches_page`. The default option can be configured globally using `page_cache_compression` *Andrey Sitnik*
6
6481bc5 @josevalim Update CHANGELOGs and guides.
josevalim authored
7 * The ShowExceptions middleware now accepts a exceptions application that is responsible to render an exception when the application fails. The application is invoked with a copy of the exception in `env["action_dispatch.exception"]` and with the PATH_INFO rewritten to the status code. *José Valim*
8
3f65e7f @wfarr Add button_tag support to ActionView::Helpers::FormBuilder.
wfarr authored
9 * Add `button_tag` support to ActionView::Helpers::FormBuilder.
10
11 This support mimics the default behavior of `submit_tag`.
12
13 Example:
14
15 <%= form_for @post do |f| %>
16 <%= f.button %>
17 <% end %>
18
dc43e40 @DevL Added :use_two_digit_numbers option [Lennart Fridén & Kim Persson]
DevL authored
19 * 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.
20 For example, this is useful for displaying ISO8601-style dates such as '2011-08-01'. *Lennart Fridén and Kim Persson*
21

dhh authored
22 * 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*

josevalim authored
24 * Deprecated implied layout lookup in controllers whose parent had a explicit layout set:
25
26 class ApplicationController
27 layout "application"
28 end
29
30 class PostsController < ApplicationController
31 end
32
33 In the example above, Posts controller will no longer automatically look up for a posts layout.
34
35 If you need this functionality you could either remove `layout "application"` from ApplicationController or explicitly set it to nil in PostsController. *José Valim*
36
18ceed2 @sikachu Allow layout fallback when using `layout` method
sikachu authored
37 * 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*
38
39 For example, consider this snippet:
40
41 class CarsController
42 layout 'single_car', :only => :show
43 end
44
45 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.
46
e29773f @nashby form_for with +:as+ option uses "action_as" as css class and id
nashby authored
47 * form_for with +:as+ option uses "#{action}_#{as}" as css class and id:
48
49 Before:
50
51 form_for(@user, :as => 'client') # => "<form class="client_new">..."
52
53 Now:
54
55 form_for(@user, :as => 'client') # => "<form class="new_client">..."
56

nashby authored
67 * You can provide a namespace for your form to ensure uniqueness of id attributes on form elements.
68 The namespace attribute will be prefixed with underscore on the generate HTML id. *Vasiliy Ermolovich*
69
70 Example:
71
72 <%= form_for(@offer, :namespace => 'namespace') do |f| %>
73 <%= f.label :version, 'Version' %>:
74 <%= f.text_field :version %>
75 <% end %>

654df86 @josevalim Show detailed exceptions no longer returns true if the request is local ...
josevalim authored
79 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

281272a @jonleighton Convert CHANGELOGs to Markdown format.
jonleighton authored
81 * Responders now return 204 No Content for API requests without a response body (as in the new scaffold) *José Valim*
82
83 * 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*
84
85 * Limit the number of options for select_year to 1000.
86
87 Pass the :max_years_allowed option to set your own limit.
88
89 *Libo Cannici*
90
91 * Passing formats or handlers to render :template and friends is deprecated. For example: *Nick Sutterer & José Valim*
92
93 render :template => "foo.html.erb"
94
95 Instead, you can provide :handlers and :formats directly as option:
96 render :template => "foo", :formats => [:html, :js], :handlers => :erb
97
98 * Changed log level of warning for missing CSRF token from :debug to :warn. *Mike Dillon*
99
100 * 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*
101
102 So instead of having to do this:
103
104 @items.each do |item|
105 content_tag_for(:li, item) do
106 Title: <%= item.title %>
107 end
108 end
109
110 You can now do this:
111
112 content_tag_for(:li, @items) do |item|
113 Title: <%= item.title %>
114 end
115
116 * send_file now guess the mime type *Esad Hajdarevic*
117
118 * Mime type entries for PDF, ZIP and other formats were added *Esad Hajdarevic*
119
120 * Generate hidden input before select with :multiple option set to true.
121 This is useful when you rely on the fact that when no options is set,
122 the state of select will be sent to rails application. Without hidden field
123 nothing is sent according to HTML spec *Bogdan Gusiev*
124
125 * Refactor ActionController::TestCase cookies *Andrew White*
126
127 Assigning cookies for test cases should now use cookies[], e.g:
128
129 cookies[:email] = 'user@example.com'
130 get :index
131 assert_equal 'user@example.com', cookies[:email]
132
133 To clear the cookies, use clear, e.g:
134
135 cookies.clear
136 get :index
137 assert_nil cookies[:email]
138
139 We now no longer write out HTTP_COOKIE and the cookie jar is
140 persistent between requests so if you need to manipulate the environment
141 for your test you need to do it before the cookie jar is created.
142

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

lest authored
165 * Fix XSS security vulnerability in the `translate` helper method. When using interpolation
166 in combination with HTML-safe translations, the interpolated input would not get HTML
167 escaped. *GH 3664*
168
169 Before:

jonleighton authored
190 * Implement a workaround for a bug in ruby-1.9.3p0 where an error would be raised
191 while attempting to convert a template from one encoding to another.
192
193 Please see http://redmine.ruby-lang.org/issues/5564 for details of the bug.
194
195 The workaround is to load all conversions into memory ahead of time, and will
196 only happen if the ruby version is *exactly* 1.9.3p0. The hope is obviously that
197 the underlying problem will be resolved in the next patchlevel release of
198 1.9.3.

204 ## Rails 3.1.1 (unreleased) ##
205
206 * javascript_path and stylesheet_path now refer to /assets if asset pipelining
207 is on. [Santiago Pastorino]
208 * button_to support form option. Now you're able to pass for example
209 'data-type' => 'json'. [ihower]
210 * image_path and image_tag should use /assets if asset pipelining is turned
211 on. Closes #3126 [Santiago Pastorino and christos]
212 * Avoid use of existing precompiled assets during rake assets:precompile run.
213 Closes #3119 [Guillermo Iguaran]
214 * Copy assets to nondigested filenames too *Santiago Pastorino*
215
216 * Give precedence to `config.digest = false` over the existence of
217 manifest.yml asset digests [christos]
218 * escape options for the stylesheet_link_tag method *Alexey Vakhov*
219
220 * Re-launch assets:precompile task using (Rake.)ruby instead of Kernel.exec so
221 it works on Windows [cablegram]
222 * env var passed to process shouldn't be modified in process method. [Santiago
223 Pastorino]
224 * `rake assets:precompile` loads the application but does not initialize
225 it.
226 To the app developer, this means configuration add in
227 config/initializers/* will not be executed.
228 Plugins developers need to special case their initializers that are
229 meant to be run in the assets group by adding :group => :assets. *José Valim*
230
231 * Sprockets uses config.assets.prefix for asset_path *asee*
232
233 * FileStore key_file_path properly limit filenames to 255 characters. *phuibonhoa*
234
235 * Fix Hash#to_query edge case with html_safe strings. *brainopia*
236
237 * Allow asset tag helper methods to accept :digest => false option in order to completely avoid the digest generation.
238 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]
239 * Don't mount Sprockets server at config.assets.prefix if config.assets.compile is false. *Mark J. Titorenko*
240
241 * Set relative url root in assets when controller isn't available for Sprockets (eg. Sass files using asset_path). Fixes #2435 *Guillermo Iguaran*
242
243 * Fix basic auth credential generation to not make newlines. GH #2882
244
245 * Fixed the behavior of asset pipeline when config.assets.digest and config.assets.compile are false and requested asset isn't precompiled.
246 Before the requested asset were compiled anyway ignoring that the config.assets.compile flag is false. *Guillermo Iguaran*
247
248 * CookieJar is now Enumerable. Fixes #2795
249
250 * Fixed AssetNotPrecompiled error raised when rake assets:precompile is compiling certain .erb files. See GH #2763 #2765 #2805 *Guillermo Iguaran*
251
252 * Manifest is correctly placed in assets path when default assets prefix is changed. Fixes #2776 *Guillermo Iguaran*
253
254 * Fixed stylesheet_link_tag and javascript_include_tag to respect additional options passed by the users when debug is on. *Guillermo Iguaran*
255
256
257 ## Rails 3.1.0 (August 30, 2011) ##
258
259 * Param values are `paramified` in controller tests. *David Chelimsky*
260
261 * 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*
262
263 * The submit form helper does not generate an id "object_name_id" anymore. *fbrusatti*
264
265 * Make sure respond_with with :js tries to render a template in all cases *José Valim*
266
267 * json_escape will now return a SafeBuffer string if it receives SafeBuffer string *tenderlove*
268
269 * Make sure escape_js returns SafeBuffer string if it receives SafeBuffer string *Prem Sichanugrist*
270
271 * Fix escape_js to work correctly with the new SafeBuffer restriction *Paul Gallagher*
272
273 * Brought back alternative convention for namespaced models in i18n *thoefer*
274
275 Now the key can be either "namespace.model" or "namespace/model" until further deprecation.
276
277 * It is prohibited to perform a in-place SafeBuffer mutation *tenderlove*
278
279 The old behavior of SafeBuffer allowed you to mutate string in place via
280 method like `sub!`. These methods can add unsafe strings to a safe buffer,
281 and the safe buffer will continue to be marked as safe.
282
283 An example problem would be something like this:
284
285 <%= link_to('hello world', @user).sub!(/hello/, params[:xss]) %>
286
287 In the above example, an untrusted string (`params[:xss]`) is added to the
288 safe buffer returned by `link_to`, and the untrusted content is successfully
289 sent to the client without being escaped. To prevent this from happening
290 `sub!` and other similar methods will now raise an exception when they are called on a safe buffer.
291
292 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:
293
294 <%= link_to('hello world', @user).sub(/hello/, params[:xss]) %>
295
296 The new versions will now ensure that *all* strings returned by these methods on safe buffers are marked unsafe.
297
298 You can read more about this change in http://groups.google.com/group/rubyonrails-security/browse_thread/thread/2e516e7acc96c4fb
299
300 * Warn if we cannot verify CSRF token authenticity *José Valim*
301
302 * Allow AM/PM format in datetime selectors *Aditya Sanghi*
303
304 * Only show dump of regular env methods on exception screen (not all the rack crap) *DHH*
305
306 * auto_link has been removed with no replacement. If you still use auto_link
307 please install the rails_autolink gem:
308 http://github.com/tenderlove/rails_autolink
309
310 *tenderlove*
311
312 * Added streaming support, you can enable it with: *José Valim*
313
314 class PostsController < ActionController::Base
315 stream :only => :index
316 end
317
318 Please read the docs at `ActionController::Streaming` for more information.
319
320 * Added `ActionDispatch::Request.ignore_accept_header` to ignore accept headers and only consider the format given as parameter *José Valim*
321
322 * Created `ActionView::Renderer` and specified an API for `ActionView::Context`, check those objects for more information *José Valim*
323
324 * 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*
325
326 This can be customized by setting `ActionController::Base.wrap_parameters` in `config/initializer/wrap_parameters.rb`
327
328 * RJS has been extracted out to a gem. *fxn*
329
330 * Implicit actions named not_implemented can be rendered. *Santiago Pastorino*
331
332 * Wildcard route will always match the optional format segment by default. *Prem Sichanugrist*
333
334 For example if you have this route:
335
336 match '*pages' => 'pages#show'
337
338 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:
339
340 match '*pages' => 'pages#show', :format => false
341
342 * Added Base.http_basic_authenticate_with to do simple http basic authentication with a single class method call *DHH*
343
344 class PostsController < ApplicationController
345 USER_NAME, PASSWORD = "dhh", "secret"
346
347 before_filter :authenticate, :except => [ :index ]
348
349 def index
350 render :text => "Everyone can see me!"
351 end
352
353 def edit
354 render :text => "I'm only accessible if you know the password"
355 end
356
357 private
358 def authenticate
359 authenticate_or_request_with_http_basic do |user_name, password|
360 user_name == USER_NAME && password == PASSWORD
361 end
362 end
363 end
364
365 ..can now be written as
366
367 class PostsController < ApplicationController
368 http_basic_authenticate_with :name => "dhh", :password => "secret", :except => :index
369
370 def index
371 render :text => "Everyone can see me!"
372 end
373
374 def edit
375 render :text => "I'm only accessible if you know the password"
376 end
377 end
378
379 * 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*
380
381 * Allow FormHelper#form_for to specify the :method as a direct option instead of through the :html hash *DHH*
382
383 form_for(@post, remote: true, method: :delete) instead of form_for(@post, remote: true, html: { method: :delete })
384
385 * 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*
386
387 * 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*
388
389 * URL parameters which return false for to_param now appear in the query string (previously they were removed) *Andrew White*
390
391 * URL parameters which return nil for to_param are now removed from the query string *Andrew White*
392
393 * ActionDispatch::MiddlewareStack now uses composition over inheritance. It is
394 no longer an array which means there may be methods missing that were not tested.
395 * Add an :authenticity_token option to form_tag for custom handling or to omit the token (pass :authenticity_token => false). *Jakub Kuźma, Igor Wiedler*
396
397 * HTML5 button_tag helper. *Rizwan Reza*
398
399 * Template lookup now searches further up in the inheritance chain. *Artemave*
400
401 * Brought back config.action_view.cache_template_loading, which allows to decide whether templates should be cached or not. *Piotr Sarnacki*
402
403 * url_for and named url helpers now accept :subdomain and :domain as options, *Josh Kalderimis*
404
405 * 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*
406
407 * 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*
408
409 * Added a convenience idiom to generate HTML5 data-* attributes in tag helpers from a :data hash of options:
410
411 tag("div", :data => {:name => 'Stephen', :city_state => %w(Chicago IL)})
412 # => <div data-name="Stephen" data-city-state="[&quot;Chicago&quot;,&quot;IL&quot;]" />
413
414 Keys are dasherized. Values are JSON-encoded, except for strings and symbols. *Stephen Celis*
415
416 * Deprecate old template handler API. The new API simply requires a template handler to respond to call. *José Valim*
417
418 * :rhtml and :rxml were finally removed as template handlers. *José Valim*
419
420 * Moved etag responsibility from ActionDispatch::Response to the middleware stack. *José Valim*
421
422 * 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*
423
424 * file_field automatically adds :multipart => true to the enclosing form. *Santiago Pastorino*
425
426 * Renames csrf_meta_tag -> csrf_meta_tags, and aliases csrf_meta_tag for backwards compatibility. *fxn*
427
428 * 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*
429
430
431 ## Rails 3.0.7 (April 18, 2011) ##
432
433 * No changes.
434
435
436 * Rails 3.0.6 (April 5, 2011)
437
438 * Fixed XSS vulnerability in `auto_link`. `auto_link` no longer marks input as
439 html safe. Please make sure that calls to auto_link() are wrapped in a
440 sanitize(), or a raw() depending on the type of input passed to auto_link().
441 For example:
442
443 <%= sanitize(auto_link(some_user_input)) %>
444
445 Thanks to Torben Schulz for reporting this. The fix can be found here:
446 61ee3449674c591747db95f9b3472c5c3bd9e84d
447
448 * 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*
449
450 * Fixes an issue with number_to_human when converting values which are less than 1 but greater than -1 *Josh Kalderimis*
451
452 * 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*
453
454 * URL parameters which return nil for to_param are now removed from the query string *Andrew White*
455
456 * Don't allow i18n to change the minor version, version now set to ~> 0.5.0 *Santiago Pastorino*
457
458 * Make TranslationHelper#translate use the :rescue_format option in I18n 0.5.0 *Sven Fuchs*
459
460 * Fix regression: javascript_include_tag shouldn't raise if you register an expansion key with nil or [] value *Santiago Pastorino*
461
462 * 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*
463
464
465 ## Rails 3.0.5 (February 26, 2011) ##
466
467 * No changes.
468
469
470 ## Rails 3.0.4 (February 8, 2011) ##
471
472 * No changes.
473
474
475 ## Rails 3.0.3 (November 16, 2010) ##
476
477 * When ActiveRecord::Base objects are sent to predicate methods, the id of the object should be sent to ARel, not the ActiveRecord::Base object.
478
479 * :constraints routing should only do sanity checks against regular expressions. String arguments are OK.
480
481
482 ## Rails 3.0.2 (November 15, 2010) ##
483
484 * The helper number_to_currency accepts a new :negative_format option to be able to configure how to render negative amounts. *Don Wilson*

490
491
492 ## Rails 3.0.0 (August 29, 2010) ##
493
494 * password_field renders with nil value by default making the use of passwords secure by default, if you want to render you should do for instance f.password_field(:password, :value => @user.password) *Santiago Pastorino*
495
496 * 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*
497
498 * 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*
499
500 * Support routing constraints in functional tests. *Andrew White*
501
502 * Add a header that tells Internet Explorer (all versions) to use the best available standards support. *Yehuda Katz*
503
504 * Allow stylesheet/javascript extensions to be changed through railties. *Josh Kalderimis*
505
506 * link_to, button_to, and tag/tag_options now rely on html_escape instead of escape_once. *fxn*
507
508 * url_for returns always unescaped strings, and the :escape option is gone. *fxn*
509
510 * Added accept-charset parameter and _snowman hidden field to force the contents
511 of Rails POSTed forms to be in UTF-8 *Yehuda Katz*
512
513 * Upgrade to Rack 1.2.1 *Jeremy Kemper*
514
515 * Allow :path to be given to match/get/post/put/delete instead of :path_names in the new router *Carlos Antônio da Silva*
516
517 * Added resources_path_names to the new router DSL *José Valim*
518
519 * Allow options to be given to the namespace method in the new router *Carlos Antônio da Silva*

522
523 * Add shallow routes back to the new router *Diego Carrion, Andrew White*
524
525 resources :posts do
526 shallow do
527 resources :comments
528 end
529 end
530
531 You can now use comment_path for /comments/1 instead of post_comment_path for /posts/1/comments/1.
532
533 * 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*
534
535 * Removed textilize, textilize_without_paragraph and markdown helpers. *Santiago Pastorino*
536
537 * Remove middleware laziness *José Valim*
538
539 * Make session stores rely on request.cookie_jar and change set_session semantics to return the cookie value instead of a boolean. *José Valim*
540
541 * OAuth 2: HTTP Token Authorization support to complement Basic and Digest Authorization. *Rick Olson*
542
543 * Fixed inconsistencies in form builder and view helpers #4432 *Neeraj Singh*
544
545 * 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*
546
547 * Renamed the field error CSS class from fieldWithErrors to field_with_errors for consistency. *Jeremy Kemper*
548
549 * Add support for shorthand routes like /projects/status(.:format) #4423 *Diego Carrion*
550
551 * 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*
552
553 * 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*
554
555 * Removed verify method in controllers. *JV*
556 It's now available as a plugin at http://github.com/rails/verification
557
558 * Removed input, form, error_messages_for and error_message_on from views. *JV*
559 It's now available as a plugin at http://github.com/rails/dynamic_form
560
561 * Routes can be scoped by controller module. *Jeremy Kemper*
562
563 # /session => Auth::SessionsController
564 scope :module => 'auth' do
565 resource :session
566 end
567
568 * Added #favicon_link_tag, it uses #image_path so in particular the favicon gets an asset ID *fxn*
569
570 * Fixed that default locale templates should be used if the current locale template is missing *DHH*
571
572 * Added all the new HTML5 form types as individual form tag methods (search, url, number, etc) #3646 *Stephen Celis*
573
574 * Changed the object used in routing constraints to be an instance of
575 ActionDispatch::Request rather than Rack::Request *YK*
576
577 * Changed ActionDispatch::Request#method to return a String, to be compatible
578 with Rack::Request. Added ActionDispatch::Request#method_symbol to
579 return a symbol form of the request method. *YK*
580
581 * Changed ActionDispatch::Request#method to return the original
582 method and #request_method to return the overridden method in the
583 case of methodoverride being used (this means that #method returns
584 "HEAD" and #request_method returns "GET" in HEAD requests). This
585 is for compatibility with Rack::Request *YK*
586
587 * #concat is now deprecated in favor of using <%= %> helpers *YK*
588
589 * Block helpers now return Strings, so you can use <%= form_for @foo do |f| %>.
590 <% form_for do |f| %> still works with deprecation notices *YK*
591
592 * Add a new #mount method on the router that does not anchor the PATH_INFO
593 at the end *YK & CL*
594
595 * Create a new LookupContext object that is responsible for performantly
596 finding a template for a given pattern *JV*
597
598 * Removed relative_url_for in favor of respecting SCRIPT_NAME *YK & CL*
599
600 * Changed file streaming to use Rack::Sendfile middleware *YK*
601
602 * ActionDispatch::Request#content_type returns a String to be compatible with
603 Rack::Request. Use #content_mime_type for the Mime::Type instance *YK*
604
605 * Updated Prototype to 1.6.1 and Scriptaculous to 1.8.3 *ML*
606
607 * Change the preferred way that URL helpers are included into a class*YK & CL*
608
609 # for all helpers including named routes
610 include Rails.application.router.url_helpers
611
612 # for just url_for
613 include Rails.application.router.url_for
614
615 * Fixed that PrototypeHelper#update_page should return html_safe *DHH*
616
617 * Fixed that much of DateHelper wouldn't return html_safe? strings *DHH*
618
619 * Fixed that fragment caching should return a cache hit as html_safe (or it would all just get escaped) *DHH*
620
621 * Added that ActionController::Base now does helper :all instead of relying on the default ApplicationController in Rails to do it *DHH*
622
623 * Added ActionDispatch::Request#authorization to access the http authentication header regardless of its proxy hiding *DHH*
624
625 * Added :alert, :notice, and :flash as options to ActionController::Base#redirect_to that'll automatically set the proper flash before the redirection [DHH]. Examples:
626
627 flash[:notice] = 'Post was created'
628 redirect_to(@post)
629
630 ...becomes:
631
632 redirect_to(@post, :notice => 'Post was created')
633
634 * 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*
635
636
637 * Introduce grouped_collection_select helper. #1249 *Dan Codeape, Erik Ostrom*
638
639 * Make sure javascript_include_tag/stylesheet_link_tag does not append ".js" or ".css" onto external urls. #1664 *Matthew Rudy Jacobs*
640
641 * Ruby 1.9: fix Content-Length for multibyte send_data streaming. #2661 *Sava Chankov*
642
643 * Ruby 1.9: ERB template encoding using a magic comment at the top of the file. *Jeremy Kemper*
644 <%# encoding: utf-8 %>
645
646 * Change integration test helpers to accept Rack environment instead of just HTTP Headers *Pratik Naik*
647
648 Before : get '/path', {}, 'Accept' => 'text/javascript'
649 After : get '/path', {}, 'HTTP_ACCEPT' => 'text/javascript'
650
651 * Instead of checking Rails.env.test? in Failsafe middleware, check env["rails.raise_exceptions"] *Bryan Helmkamp*
652
653 * Fixed that TestResponse.cookies was returning cookies unescaped #1867 *Doug McInnes*
654
655
656 ## 2.3.2 Final (March 15, 2009) ##
657
658 * Fixed that redirection would just log the options, not the final url (which lead to "Redirected to #<Post:0x23150b8>") *DHH*
659
660 * Don't check authenticity tokens for any AJAX requests *Ross Kaffenberger/Bryan Helmkamp*
661
662 * Added ability to pass in :public => true to fresh_when, stale?, and expires_in to make the request proxy cachable #2095 *Gregg Pollack*
663
664 * Fixed that passing a custom form builder would be forwarded to nested fields_for calls #2023 *Eloy Duran/Nate Wiger*
665
666 * Form option helpers now support disabled option tags and the use of lambdas for selecting/disabling option tags from collections #837 *Tekin*
667
668 * 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*
669
670 * Fix a syntax error in current_page?() that was prevent matches against URL's with multiple query parameters #1385, #1868 *chris finne/Andrew White*
671
672 * Added localized rescue template when I18n.locale is set (ex: public/404.da.html) #1835 *José Valim*
673
674 * Make the form_for and fields_for helpers support the new Active Record nested update options. #1202 *Eloy Duran*
675
676 <% form_for @person do |person_form| %>
677 ...
678 <% person_form.fields_for :projects do |project_fields| %>
679 <% if project_fields.object.active? %>
680 Name: <%= project_fields.text_field :name %>
681 <% end %>
682 <% end %>
683 <% end %>
684
685
686 * Added grouped_options_for_select helper method for wrapping option tags in optgroups. #977 *Jon Crawford*
687
688 * Implement HTTP Digest authentication. #1230 [Gregg Kellogg, Pratik Naik] Example :
689
690 class DummyDigestController < ActionController::Base
691 USERS = { "lifo" => 'world' }
692
693 before_filter :authenticate
694
695 def index
696 render :text => "Hello Secret"
697 end
698
699 private
700
701 def authenticate
702 authenticate_or_request_with_http_digest("Super Secret") do |username|
703 # Return the user's password
704 USERS[username]
705 end
706 end
707 end
708
709 * Improved i18n support for the number_to_human_size helper. Changes the storage_units translation data; update your translations accordingly. #1634 *Yaroslav Markin*
710 storage_units:
711 # %u is the storage unit, %n is the number (default: 2 MB)
712 format: "%n %u"
713 units:
714 byte:
715 one: "Byte"
716 other: "Bytes"
717 kb: "KB"
718 mb: "MB"
719 gb: "GB"
720 tb: "TB"
721
722 * Added :silence option to BenchmarkHelper#benchmark and turned log_level into a hash parameter and deprecated the old use *DHH*
723
724 * 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*
725
726 * Make ActionController#render(string) work as a shortcut for render :file/:template/:action => string. [#1435] [Pratik Naik] Examples:
727
728 \# Instead of render(:action => 'other_action')
729 render('other_action') # argument has no '/'
730 render(:other_action)
731
732 \# Instead of render(:template => 'controller/action')
733 render('controller/action') # argument must not begin with a '/', but contain a '/'
734
735 \# Instead of render(:file => '/Users/lifo/home.html.erb')
736 render('/Users/lifo/home.html.erb') # argument must begin with a '/'
737
738 * Add :prompt option to date/time select helpers. #561 *Sam Oliver*
739
740 * Fixed that send_file shouldn't set an etag #1578 *Hongli Lai*
741
742 * Allow users to opt out of the spoofing checks in Request#remote_ip. Useful for sites whose traffic regularly triggers false positives. *Darren Boyd*
743
744 * Deprecated formatted_polymorphic_url. *Jeremy Kemper*
745
746 * 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*
747
748 * 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*
749
750 * Dropped formatted_* routes in favor of just passing in :format as an option. This cuts resource routes generation in half #1359 *aaronbatalion*
751
752 * 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*
753
754 * Allow helpers directory to be overridden via ActionController::Base.helpers_dir #1424 *Sam Pohlenz*
755
756 * Remove deprecated ActionController::Base#assign_default_content_type_and_charset
757
758 * Changed the default of ActionView#render to assume partials instead of files when not given an options hash [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
759
760 # Instead of <%= render :partial => "account" %>
761 <%= render "account" %>
762
763 # Instead of <%= render :partial => "account", :locals => { :account => @buyer } %>
764 <%= render "account", :account => @buyer %>
765
766 # @account is an Account instance, so it uses the RecordIdentifier to replace
767 # <%= render :partial => "accounts/account", :locals => { :account => @account } %>
768 <%= render(@account) %>
769
770 # @posts is an array of Post instances, so it uses the RecordIdentifier to replace
771 # <%= render :partial => "posts/post", :collection => @posts %>
772 <%= render(@posts) %>
773
774 * Remove deprecated render_component. Please use the plugin from http://github.com/rails/render_component/tree/master *Pratik Naik*
775
776 * 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*
777
778
779 ## 2.2.2 (November 21st, 2008) ##
780
781 * I18n: translate number_to_human_size. Add storage_units: [Bytes, KB, MB, GB, TB] to your translations. #1448 *Yaroslav Markin*
782
783 * Restore backwards compatible functionality for setting relative_url_root. Include deprecation
784
785 * Switched the CSRF module to use the request content type to decide if the request is forgeable. #1145 *Jeff Cohen*
786
787 * 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*
788
789 map.resources :products, :only => :show do |product|
790 product.resources :images, :except => :destroy
791 end
792
793 * Added render :js for people who want to render inline JavaScript replies without using RJS *David Heinemeier Hansson*
794
795 * Fixed that polymorphic_url should compact given array #1317 *hiroshi*
796
797 * Fixed the sanitize helper to avoid double escaping already properly escaped entities #683 *antonmos/Ryan McGeary*
798
799 * Fixed that FormTagHelper generated illegal html if name contained square brackets #1238 *Vladimir Dobriakov*
800
801 * 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*
802
803 * Simplified the logging format for parameters (don't include controller, action, and format as duplicates) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
804
805 * Remove the logging of the Session ID when the session store is CookieStore *David Heinemeier Hansson*
806
807 * Fixed regex in redirect_to to fully support URI schemes #1247 *Seth Fitzsimmons*
808
809 * Fixed bug with asset timestamping when using relative_url_root #1265 *Joe Goldwasser*
810
811
812 ## 2.2.0 RC1 (October 24th, 2008) ##
813
814 * Fix incorrect closing CDATA delimiter and that HTML::Node.parse would blow up on unclosed CDATA sections *packagethief*
815
816 * Added stale? and fresh_when methods to provide a layer of abstraction above request.fresh? and friends [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
817
818 class ArticlesController < ApplicationController
819 def show_with_respond_to_block
820 @article = Article.find(params[:id])
821
822
823 # If the request sends headers that differs from the options provided to stale?, then
824 # the request is indeed stale and the respond_to block is triggered (and the options
825 # to the stale? call is set on the response).
826 #
827 # If the request headers match, then the request is fresh and the respond_to block is
828 # not triggered. Instead the default render will occur, which will check the last-modified
829 # and etag headers and conclude that it only needs to send a "304 Not Modified" instead
830 # of rendering the template.
831 if stale?(:last_modified => @article.published_at.utc, :etag => @article)
832 respond_to do |wants|
833 # normal response processing
834 end
835 end
836 end
837
838 def show_with_implied_render
839 @article = Article.find(params[:id])
840
841 # Sets the response headers and checks them against the request, if the request is stale
842 # (i.e. no match of either etag or last-modified), then the default render of the template happens.
843 # If the request is fresh, then the default render will return a "304 Not Modified"
844 # instead of rendering the template.
845 fresh_when(:last_modified => @article.published_at.utc, :etag => @article)
846 end
847 end
848
849
850 * Added inline builder yield to atom_feed_helper tags where appropriate [Sam Ruby]. Example:
851
852 entry.summary :type => 'xhtml' do |xhtml|
853 xhtml.p pluralize(order.line_items.count, "line item")
854 xhtml.p "Shipped to #{order.address}"
855 xhtml.p "Paid by #{order.pay_type}"
856 end
857
858 * Make PrototypeHelper#submit_to_remote a wrapper around PrototypeHelper#button_to_remote. *Tarmo Tänav*
859
860 * Set HttpOnly for the cookie session store's cookie. #1046
861
862 * Added FormTagHelper#image_submit_tag confirm option #784 *Alastair Brunton*
863
864 * Fixed FormTagHelper#submit_tag with :disable_with option wouldn't submit the button's value when was clicked #633 *Jose Fernandez*
865
866 * Stopped logging template compiles as it only clogs up the log *David Heinemeier Hansson*
867
868 * Changed the X-Runtime header to report in milliseconds *David Heinemeier Hansson*
869
870 * Changed BenchmarkHelper#benchmark to report in milliseconds *David Heinemeier Hansson*
871
872 * Changed logging format to be millisecond based and skip misleading stats [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Went from:
873
874 Completed in 0.10000 (4 reqs/sec) | Rendering: 0.04000 (40%) | DB: 0.00400 (4%) | 200 OK [http://example.com]
875
876 ...to:
877
878 Completed in 100ms (View: 40, DB: 4) | 200 OK [http://example.com]
879
880 * Add support for shallow nesting of routes. #838 *S. Brent Faulkner*
881
882 Example :
883
884 map.resources :users, :shallow => true do |user|
885 user.resources :posts
886 end
887
888 - GET /users/1/posts (maps to PostsController#index action as usual)
889 named route "user_posts" is added as usual.
890
891 - GET /posts/2 (maps to PostsController#show action as if it were not nested)
892 Additionally, named route "post" is added too.
893
894 * Added button_to_remote helper. #3641 *Donald Piret, Tarmo Tänav*
895
896 * Deprecate render_component. Please use render_component plugin from http://github.com/rails/render_component/tree/master *Pratik Naik*
897
898 * Routes may be restricted to lists of HTTP methods instead of a single method or :any. #407 *Brennan Dunn, Gaius Centus Novus*
899 map.resource :posts, :collection => { :search => [:get, :post] }
900 map.session 'session', :requirements => { :method => [:get, :post, :delete] }
901
902 * Deprecated implicit local assignments when rendering partials *Josh Peek*
903
904 * Introduce current_cycle helper method to return the current value without bumping the cycle. #417 *Ken Collins*
905
906 * Allow polymorphic_url helper to take url options. #880 *Tarmo Tänav*
907
908 * Switched integration test runner to use Rack processor instead of CGI *Josh Peek*
909
910 * Made AbstractRequest.if_modified_sense return nil if the header could not be parsed *Jamis Buck*
911
912 * Added back ActionController::Base.allow_concurrency flag *Josh Peek*
913
914 * 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*
915
916 * Update Prototype to 1.6.0.2 #599 *Patrick Joyce*
917
918 * Conditional GET utility methods. *Jeremy Kemper*
919 response.last_modified = @post.updated_at
920 response.etag = [:admin, @post, current_user]
921
922 if request.fresh?(response)
923 head :not_modified
924 else
925 # render ...
926 end
927
928 * All 2xx requests are considered successful *Josh Peek*
929
930 * 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*
931
932 * Removed config.action_view.cache_template_loading, use config.cache_classes instead *Josh Peek*
933
934 * Get buffer for fragment cache from template's @output_buffer *Josh Peek*
935
936 * 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*
937
938 * Refactor template preloading. New abstractions include Renderable mixins and a refactored Template class *Josh Peek*
939
940 * Changed ActionView::TemplateHandler#render API method signature to render(template, local_assigns = {}) *Josh Peek*
941
942 * 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*
943
944 * Add :recursive option to javascript_include_tag and stylesheet_link_tag to be used along with :all. #480 *Damian Janowski*
945
946 * Allow users to disable the use of the Accept header *Michael Koziarski*
947
948 The accept header is poorly implemented by browsers and causes strange
949 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.
950 To disable the header you need to set:
951 config.action_controller.use_accept_header = false
952 * 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*
953
954 * Deprecated TemplateHandler line offset *Josh Peek*
955
956 * Allow caches_action to accept cache store options. #416. [José Valim]. Example:
957
958 caches_action :index, :redirected, :if => Proc.new { |c| !c.request.format.json? }, :expires_in => 1.hour
959
960 * Remove define_javascript_functions, javascript_include_tag and friends are far superior. *Michael Koziarski*
961
962 * Deprecate :use_full_path render option. The supplying the option no longer has an effect *Josh Peek*
963
964 * Add :as option to render a collection of partials with a custom local variable name. #509 *Simon Jefford, Pratik Naik*
965
966 render :partial => 'other_people', :collection => @people, :as => :person
967
968 This will let you access objects of @people as 'person' local variable inside 'other_people' partial template.
969
970 * time_zone_select: support for regexp matching of priority zones. Resolves #195 *Ernie Miller*
971
972 * Made ActionView::Base#render_file private *Josh Peek*
973
974 * 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*
975
976 This could cause some erroneous test failures if you were redirecting between controllers
977 in different namespaces and wrote your assertions relative to the root of the application.
978
979 * Remove follow_redirect from controller functional tests.
980
981 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=>...
982 * Fix polymorphic_url with singleton resources. #461 *Tammer Saleh*
983
984 * Replaced TemplateFinder abstraction with ViewLoadPaths *Josh Peek*
985
986 * Added block-call style to link_to [Sam Stephenson/David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
987
988 <% link_to(@profile) do %>
989 <strong><%= @profile.name %></strong> -- <span>Check it out!!</span>
990 <% end %>
991
992 * Performance: integration test benchmarking and profiling. *Jeremy Kemper*
993
994 * Make caching more aware of mime types. Ensure request format is not considered while expiring cache. *Jonathan del Strother*
995
996 * Drop ActionController::Base.allow_concurrency flag *Josh Peek*
997
998 * More efficient concat and capture helpers. Remove ActionView::Base.erb_variable. *Jeremy Kemper*
999
1000 * Added page.reload functionality. Resolves #277. *Sean Huber*
1001
1002 * 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*
1003
1004 * Allow caches_action to accept a layout option *José Valim*
1005
1006 * Added Rack processor *Ezra Zygmuntowicz, Josh Peek*
1007
1008

1016
1017 * Change the request forgery protection to go by Content-Type instead of request.format so that you can't bypass it by POSTing to "#{request.uri}.xml" *Rick Olson*
1018 * InstanceTag#default_time_from_options with hash args uses Time.current as default; respects hash settings when time falls in system local spring DST gap *Geoff Buesing*
1019
1020 * select_date defaults to Time.zone.today when config.time_zone is set *Geoff Buesing*
1021

1023
1024 * Added ActionController::TestCase#rescue_action_in_public! to control whether the action under test should use the regular rescue_action path instead of simply raising the exception inline (great for error testing) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1025
1026 * Reduce number of instance variables being copied from controller to view. *Pratik Naik*
1027
1028 * select_datetime and select_time default to Time.zone.now when config.time_zone is set *Geoff Buesing*
1029

1048 end
1049
1050 * add json_escape ERB util to escape html entities in json strings that are output in HTML pages. *Rick Olson*
1051
1052 * Provide a helper proxy to access helper methods from outside views. Closes #10839 *Josh Peek*
1053 e.g. ApplicationController.helpers.simple_format(text)
1054
1055 * Improve documentation. *Xavier Noria, leethal, jerome*
1056
1057 * Ensure RJS redirect_to doesn't html-escapes string argument. Closes #8546 *Josh Peek, eventualbuddha, Pratik Naik*

1096
1097 * Fixed that sweepers defined by cache_sweeper will be added regardless of the perform_caching setting. Instead, control whether the sweeper should be run with the perform_caching setting. This makes testing easier when you want to turn perform_caching on/off *David Heinemeier Hansson*

1099 * Make MimeResponds::Responder#any work without explicit types. Closes #11140 *jaw6*
1100

This makes it possible for JS requests to automatically render action.js.rjs files without an explicit respond_to block *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1114
1115 * Tests for distance_of_time_in_words with TimeWithZone instances. Closes #10914 *Ernesto Jimenez*

1164
1165 * UrlWriter respects relative_url_root. #10748 *Cheah Chu Yeow*
1166

1168
1169 * Support render :text => nil. #6684 *tjennings, PotatoSalad, Cheah Chu Yeow*

1173 * All fragment cache keys are now by default prefixed with the "views/" namespace *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1174
1175 * Moved the caching stores from ActionController::Caching::Fragments::* to ActiveSupport::Cache::*.

1347
1348 * Memcached sessions: add session data on initialization; don't silently discard exceptions; add unit tests. #9823 *kamk*
1349
1350 * 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*
1351
1352 * Make sure that custom inflections are picked up by map.resources. #9815 *Mislav Marohnić*
1353
1354 * Changed SanitizeHelper#sanitize to only allow the custom attributes and tags when specified in the call *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1355
1356 * Extracted sanitization methods from TextHelper to SanitizeHelper *David Heinemeier Hansson*

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

1606
1607 * Make assert_select's failure messages clearer about what failed. #7779 *dchelimsky*
1608
1609 * Introduce a default respond_to block for custom types. #8174 *Josh Peek*
1610
1611 * auto_complete_field takes a :method option so you can GET or POST. #8120 *zapnap*
1612
1613 * Added option to suppress :size when using :maxlength for FormTagHelper#text_field #3112 *Tim Pope*
1614
1615 * catch possible WSOD when trying to render a missing partial. Closes #8454 *Jonathan del Strother*
1616
1617 * Rewind request body after reading it, if possible. #8438 *s450r1*
1618
1619 * Resource namespaces are inherited by their has_many subresources. #8280 *marclove, Geoff Garside*
1620
1621 * Fix filtered parameter logging with nil parameter values. #8422 *choonkeat*
1622
1623 * 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*
1624
1625 * Document caches_action. #5419 *Jarkko Laine*
1626
1627 * Update to Prototype 1.5.1. *Sam Stephenson*
1628
1629 * Allow routes to be decalred under namespaces [Tobias Lütke]:
1630
1631 map.namespace :admin do |admin|
1632 admin.root :controller => "products"
1633 admin.feed 'feed.xml', :controller => 'products', :action => 'feed', :format => 'xml'
1634 end
1635
1636 * Update to script.aculo.us 1.7.1_beta3. *Thomas Fuchs*
1637
1638 * observe_form always sends the serialized form. #5271 *Manfred Stienstra, normelton@gmail.com*
1639
1640 * Parse url-encoded and multipart requests ourselves instead of delegating to CGI. *Jeremy Kemper*
1641
1642 * select :include_blank option can be set to a string instead of true, which just uses an empty string. #7664 *Wizard*
1643
1644 * Added url_for usage on render :location, which allows for record identification [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1645
1646 render :xml => person, :status => :created, :location => person
1647
1648 ...expands the location to person_url(person).
1649
1650 * 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*
1651
1652 * Add some performance enhancements to ActionView.
1653
1654 * Cache base_paths in @@cached_base_paths
1655 * Cache template extensions in @@cached_template_extension
1656 * Remove unnecessary rescues
1657
1658 * Assume that rendered partials go by the HTML format by default
1659
1660 def my_partial
1661 render :update do |page|
1662 # in this order
1663 # _foo.html.erb
1664 # _foo.erb
1665 # _foo.rhtml
1666 page.replace :foo, :partial => 'foo'
1667 end
1668 end
1669
1670 * Added record identifications to FormHelper#form_for and PrototypeHelper#remote_form_for [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
1671
1672 <% form_for(@post) do |f| %>
1673 ...
1674 <% end %>
1675
1676 This will expand to be the same as:
1677
1678 <% form_for :post, @post, :url => post_path(@post), :html => { :method => :put, :class => "edit_post", :id => "edit_post_45" } do |f| %>
1679 ...
1680 <% end %>
1681
1682 And for new records:
1683
1684 <% form_for(Post.new) do |f| %>
1685 ...
1686 <% end %>
1687
1688 This will expand to be the same as:
1689
1690 <% form_for :post, @post, :url => posts_path, :html => { :class => "new_post", :id => "new_post" } do |f| %>
1691 ...
1692 <% end %>
1693
1694 * Rationalize route path escaping according to RFC 2396 section 3.3. #7544, #8307. *Jeremy Kemper, Chris Roos, begemot, jugend*
1695
1696 * Added record identification with polymorphic routes for ActionController::Base#url_for and ActionView::Base#url_for [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
1697
1698 redirect_to(post) # => redirect_to(posts_url(post)) => Location: http://example.com/posts/1
1699 link_to(post.title, post) # => link_to(post.title, posts_url(post)) => <a href="/posts/1">Hello world</a>
1700
1701 Any method that calls url_for on its parameters will automatically benefit from this.
1702
1703 * Removed deprecated parameters_for_method_reference concept (legacy from before named routes) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1704
1705 * Add ActionController::Routing::Helpers, a module to contain common URL helpers such as polymorphic_url. *Nicholas Seckar*
1706
1707 * Included the HttpAuthentication plugin as part of core (ActionController::HttpAuthentication::Basic) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1708
1709 * Modernize documentation for form helpers. *Jeremy McAnally*
1710
1711 * Add brief introduction to REST to the resources documentation. *fearoffish*
1712
1713 * Fix various documentation typos throughout ActionPack. *Henrik N*
1714
1715 * Enhance documentation and add examples for url_for. *Jeremy McAnally*
1716
1717 * Fix documentation typo in routes. *Norbert Crombach, pam*
1718
1719 * Sweep flash when filter chain is halted. *Caio Chassot <lists@v2studio.com>*
1720
1721 * 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*
1722
1723 * Replace the current block/continuation filter chain handling by an implementation based on a simple loop. #8226 *Stefan Kaes*
1724
1725 * Update UrlWriter to accept :anchor parameter. Closes #6771. *Chris McGrath*
1726
1727 * Added RecordTagHelper for using RecordIdentifier conventions on divs and other container elements [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1728
1729 <% div_for(post) do %> <div id="post_45" class="post">
1730 <%= post.body %> What a wonderful world!
1731 <% end %> </div>
1732
1733 * Added page[record] accessor to JavaScriptGenerator that relies on RecordIdentifier to find the right dom id [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1734
1735 format.js do
1736 # Calls: new Effect.fade('post_45');
1737 render(:update) { |page| page[post].visual_effect(:fade) }
1738 end
1739
1740 * Added RecordIdentifier to enforce view conventions on records for dom ids, classes, and partial paths *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1741
1742 * Added map.namespace to deal with the common situation of admin sections and the like *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1743
1744 Before:
1745

1747 map.resources :tags, :name_prefix => 'admin_product_', :path_prefix => "admin/products/:product_id", :controller => "admin/product_tags"
1748 map.resources :images, :name_prefix => 'admin_product_', :path_prefix => "admin/products/:product_id", :controller => "admin/product_images"
1749 map.resources :variants, :name_prefix => 'admin_product_', :path_prefix => "admin/products/:product_id", :controller => "admin/product_variants"
1750
1751 After:
1752
1753 map.namespace(:admin) do |admin|
1754 admin.resources :products,
1755 :collection => { :inventory => :get },
1756 :member => { :duplicate => :post },
1757 :has_many => [ :tags, :images, :variants ]
1758 end
1759
1760 * Added :name_prefix as standard for nested resources [David Heinemeier Hansson]. WARNING: May be backwards incompatible with your app
1761
1762 Before:
1763
1764 map.resources :emails do |emails|
1765 emails.resources :comments, :name_prefix => "email_"
1766 emails.resources :attachments, :name_prefix => "email_"
1767 end
1768
1769 After:
1770
1771 map.resources :emails do |emails|
1772 emails.resources :comments
1773 emails.resources :attachments
1774 end
1775
1776 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.
1777
1778 * Added :has_many and :has_one for declaring plural and singular resources beneath the current *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1779
1780 Before:
1781
1782 map.resources :notes do |notes|
1783 notes.resources :comments
1784 notes.resources :attachments
1785 notes.resource :author
1786 end
1787
1788 After:
1789
1790 map.resources :notes, :has_many => [ :comments, :attachments ], :has_one => :author
1791
1792 * Added that render :xml will try to call to_xml if it can [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Makes these work:
1793
1794 render :xml => post
1795 render :xml => comments
1796
1797 * 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*
1798
1799 render :xml => post.to_xml, :status => :created, :location => post_url(post)
1800
1801 * Ensure that render_text only adds string content to the body of the response *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1802
1803 * Return the string representation from an Xml Builder when rendering a partial. Closes #5044 *Tim Pope*
1804
1805 * Fixed that parameters from XML should also be presented in a hash with indifferent access *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1806
1807 * 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*
1808
1809 * 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*
1810
1811 * Allow layouts with extension of .html.erb. Closes #8032 *Josh Knowles*
1812
1813 * Change default respond_to templates for xml and rjs formats. *Rick Olson*
1814
1815 * Default xml template goes from #{action_name}.rxml => #{action_name}.xml.builder.
1816 * Default rjs template goes from #{action_name}.rjs => #{action_name}.js.rjs.
1817
1818 You can still specify your old templates:
1819
1820 respond_to do |format|
1821 format.xml do
1822 render :action => "#{action_name}.rxml"
1823 end
1824 end
1825
1826 * 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*
1827
1828 * Fix WSOD when template compilation fails *Rick Olson*
1829
1830 * 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*
1831
1832 * Highlight helper highlights one or many terms in a single pass. *Jeremy Kemper*
1833
1834 * 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*
1835
1836 * Added that FormTagHelper#submit_tag will return to its original state if the submit fails and you're using :disable_with *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1837
1838 * Cleaned up, corrected, and mildly expanded ActionPack documentation. Closes #7190 *Jeremy McAnally*
1839
1840 * Small collection of ActionController documentation cleanups. Closes #7319 *Jeremy McAnally*
1841
1842 * Make sure the route expiry hash is constructed by comparing the to_param-ized values of each hash. *Jamis Buck*
1843
1844 * Allow configuration of the default action cache path for #caches_action calls. *Rick Olson*
1845
1846 class ListsController < ApplicationController
1847 caches_action :index, :cache_path => Proc.new { |controller|
1848 controller.params[:user_id] ?
1849 controller.send(:user_lists_url, c.params[:user_id]) :
1850 controller.send(:lists_url) }
1851 end
1852
1853 * Performance: patch cgi/session/pstore to require digest/md5 once rather than per #initialize. #7583 *Stefan Kaes*
1854
1855 * Cookie session store: ensure that new sessions doesn't reuse data from a deleted session in the same request. *Jeremy Kemper*
1856
1857 * Deprecation: verification with :redirect_to => :named_route shouldn't be deprecated. #7525 *Justin French*
1858
1859 * Cookie session store: raise ArgumentError when :session_key is blank. *Jeremy Kemper*
1860
1861 * 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*
1862
1863 * Consistent public/protected/private visibility for chained methods. #7813 *Dan Manges*
1864
1865 * Prefer MIME constants to strings. #7707 *Dan Kubb*
1866
1867 * 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*
1868
1869 \# 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]
1870 * Added Request#url that returns the complete URL used for the request *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1871
1872 * Extract dynamic scaffolding into a plugin. #7700 *Josh Peek*
1873
1874 * Added user/password options for url_for to add http authentication in a URL *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1875
1876 * Fixed that FormTagHelper#text_area_tag should disregard :size option if it's not a string *Brendon Davidson*
1877
1878 * 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*
1879
1880 * session_enabled? works with session :off. #6680 *Jonathan del Strother*
1881
1882 * Added :port and :host handling to UrlRewriter (which unified url_for usage, regardless of whether it's called in view or controller) #7616 *alancfrancis*
1883
1884 * Allow send_file/send_data to use a registered mime type as the :type parameter #7620 *jonathan*
1885
1886 * Allow routing requirements on map.resource(s) #7633 [quixoten]. Example:
1887
1888 map.resources :network_interfaces, :requirements => { :id => /^\d+\.\d+\.\d+\.\d+$/ }
1889
1890 * Cookie session store: empty and unchanged sessions don't write a cookie. *Jeremy Kemper*
1891
1892 * Added helper(:all) as a way to include all helpers from app/helpers/**/*.rb in ApplicationController *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1893
1894 * Integration tests: introduce methods for other HTTP methods. #6353 *caboose*
1895
1896 * Routing: better support for escaped values in route segments. #7544 [Chris
1897 Roos]
1898 * 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*
1899
1900 Example config/environment.rb:
1901 # Use an application-wide secret key and the default SHA1 message digest.
1902 config.action_controller.session = { :secret => "can't touch this" }
1903
1904 # Store a secret key per user and employ a stronger message digest.
1905 config.action_controller.session = {
1906 :digest => 'SHA512',
1907 :secret => Proc.new { User.current.secret_key }
1908 }
1909
1910 * 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.
1911
1912 * Added caching option to AssetTagHelper#stylesheet_link_tag and AssetTagHelper#javascript_include_tag [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
1913
1914 stylesheet_link_tag :all, :cache => true # when ActionController::Base.perform_caching is false =>
1915 <link href="/stylesheets/style1.css" media="screen" rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" />
1916 <link href="/stylesheets/styleB.css" media="screen" rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" />
1917 <link href="/stylesheets/styleX2.css" media="screen" rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" />
1918
1919 stylesheet_link_tag :all, :cache => true # when ActionController::Base.perform_caching is true =>
1920 <link href="/stylesheets/all.css" media="screen" rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" />
1921
1922 ...when caching is on, all.css is the concatenation of style1.css, styleB.css, and styleX2.css.
1923 Same deal for JavaScripts.
1924
1925 * 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*
1926
1927 * Added default mime type for CSS (Mime::CSS) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1928
1929 * 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*
1930
1931 * Added X-Runtime to all responses with the request run time *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1932
1933 * Add Mime::Type convenience methods to check the current mime type. *Rick Olson*
1934
1935 request.format.html? # => true if Mime::HTML
1936 request.format.jpg? # => true if Mime::JPG
1937
1938 \# ActionController sample usage:
1939 \# the session will be disabled for non html/ajax requests
1940 session :off, :if => Proc.new { |req| !(req.format.html? || req.format.js?) }
1941
1942 * Performance: patch cgi/session to require digest/md5 once rather than per #create_new_id. *Stefan Kaes*
1943
1944 * Add a :url_based_filename => true option to ActionController::Streaming::send_file, which allows URL-based filenames. *Thomas Fuchs*
1945
1946 * Fix that FormTagHelper#submit_tag using :disable_with should trigger the onsubmit handler of its form if available *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1947
1948 * Fix #render_file so that TemplateError is called with the correct params and you don't get the WSOD. *Rick Olson*
1949
1950 * 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
1951 superclass' view_paths. [Rick Olson]
1952 * Allow Controllers to have multiple view_paths instead of a single template_root. Closes #2754 *John Long*
1953
1954 * Add much-needed html-scanner tests. Fixed CDATA parsing bug. *Rick Olson*
1955
1956 * improve error message for Routing for named routes. Closes #7346 *Rob Sanheim*
1957
1958 * Added enhanced docs to routing assertions. Closes #7359 *Rob Sanheim*
1959
1960 * fix form_for example in ActionController::Resources documentation. Closes #7362 *gnarg*
1961
1962 * 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*
1963
1964 * Added FormBuilder#submit as a delegate for FormTagHelper#submit_tag *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1965
1966 * 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*
1967
1968 * Change the query parser to map empty GET params to "" rather than nil. Closes #5694. *Nicholas Seckar*
1969
1970 * date_select and datetime_select take a :default option. #7052 *Nik Wakelin*
1971 date_select "post", "written_on", :default => 3.days.from_now
1972 date_select "credit_card", "bill_due", :default => { :day => 20 }
1973
1974 * select :multiple => true suffixes the attribute name with [] unless already suffixed. #6977 *nik.kakelin, ben, julik*
1975
1976 * Improve routes documentation. #7095 *zackchandler*
1977
1978 * 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*
1979
1980 * Resource member routes require :id, eliminating the ambiguous overlap with collection routes. #7229 *dkubb*
1981
1982 * Remove deprecated assertions. *Jeremy Kemper*
1983
1984 * Change session restoration to allow namespaced models to be autoloaded. Closes #6348. *Nicholas Seckar*
1985
1986 * Fix doubly appearing parameters due to string and symbol mixups. Closes #2551. *Anthony Eden*
1987
1988 * Fix overly greedy rescues when loading helpers. Fixes #6268. *Nicholas Seckar*
1989
1990 * Fixed NumberHelper#number_with_delimiter to use "." always for splitting the original number, not the delimiter parameter #7389 *ceefour*
1991
1992 * Autolinking recognizes trailing and embedded . , : ; #7354 *Jarkko Laine*
1993
1994 * Make TextHelper::auto_link recognize URLs with colons in path correctly, fixes #7268. *imajes*
1995
1996 * Update to script.aculo.us 1.7.0. *Thomas Fuchs*
1997
1998 * Modernize cookie testing code, and increase coverage (Heckle++) #7101 *Kevin Clark*
1999
2000 * Improve Test Coverage for ActionController::Routing::Route#matches_controller_and_action? (Heckle++) #7115 *Kevin Clark*
2001
2002 * Heckling ActionController::Resources::Resource revealed that set_prefixes didn't break when :name_prefix was munged. #7081 *Kevin Clark*
2003
2004 * Fix #distance_of_time_in_words to report accurately against the Duration class. #7114 *eventualbuddha*
2005
2006 * Refactor #form_tag to allow easy extending. *Rick Olson*
2007
2008 * Update to Prototype 1.5.0. *Sam Stephenson*
2009
2010 * RecordInvalid, RecordNotSaved => 422 Unprocessable Entity, StaleObjectError => 409 Conflict. #7097 *dkubb*
2011
2012 * Allow fields_for to be nested inside form_for, so that the name and id get properly constructed *Jamis Buck*
2013
2014 * Allow inGroupsOf and eachSlice to be called through rjs. #7046 *Cody Fauser*
2015
2016 * Allow exempt_from_layout :rhtml. #6742, #7026 *Dan Manges, Squeegy*
2017
2018 * Recognize the .txt extension as Mime::TEXT *Rick Olson*
2019
2020 * Fix parsing of array[] CGI parameters so extra empty values aren't included. #6252 *Nicholas Seckar, aiwilliams, brentrowland*
2021
2022 * link_to_unless_current works with full URLs as well as paths. #6891 *Jarkko Laine, Manfred Stienstra, idrifter*
2023
2024 * Lookup the mime type for #auto_discovery_link_tag in the Mime::Type class. Closes #6941 *Josh Peek*
2025
2026 * Fix bug where nested resources ignore a parent singleton parent's path prefix. Closes #6940 *Dan Kubb*
2027
2028 * Fix no method error with error_messages_on. Closes #6935 *nik.wakelin Koz*
2029
2030 * Slight doc tweak to the ActionView::Helpers::PrototypeHelper#replace docs. Closes #6922 *Steven Bristol*
2031
2032 * Slight doc tweak to #prepend_filter. Closes #6493 *Jeremy Voorhis*
2033
2034 * Add more extensive documentation to the AssetTagHelper. Closes #6452 *Bob Silva*
2035
2036 * Clean up multiple calls to #stringify_keys in TagHelper, add better documentation and testing for TagHelper. Closes #6394 *Bob Silva*
2037
2038 * [DOCS] fix reference to ActionController::Macros::AutoComplete for #text_field_with_auto_complete. Closes #2578 *Jan Prill*
2039
2040 * Make sure html_document is reset between integration test requests. *ctm*
2041
2042 * 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*
2043
2044 * Routing uses URI escaping for path components and CGI escaping for query parameters. *darix, Jeremy Kemper*
2045
2046 * 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*
2047
2048 * Singleton resources: POST /singleton => create, GET /singleton/new => new. *Jeremy Kemper*
2049
2050 * Use 400 Bad Request status for unrescued ActiveRecord::RecordInvalid exceptions. *Jeremy Kemper*
2051
2052 * Silence log_error deprecation warnings from inspecting deprecated instance variables. *Nate Wiger*
2053
2054 * Only cache GET requests with a 200 OK response. #6514, #6743 *RSL, anamba*
2055
2056 * Add a 'referer' attribute to TestRequest. *Jamis Buck*
2057
2058 * Ensure render :json => ... skips the layout. Closes #6808 *Josh Peek*
2059
2060 * Fix HTML::Node to output double quotes instead of single quotes. Closes #6845 *mitreandy*
2061
2062 * Correctly report which filter halted the chain. #6699 *Martin Emde*
2063
2064 * 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*
2065
2066 * Unrescued ActiveRecord::RecordNotFound responds with 404 instead of 500. *Jeremy Kemper*
2067
2068 * Improved auto_link to match more valid urls correctly *Tobias Lütke*
2069
2070 * Add singleton resources. *Rick Olson*
2071
2072 map.resource :account
2073
2074 GET /account
2075 GET /account;edit
2076 UPDATE /account
2077 DELETE /account
2078
2079 * 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*
2080 # application/json response with body 'Element.show({:name: "David"})'
2081 respond_to do |format|
2082 format.json { render :json => { :name => "David" }.to_json, :callback => 'Element.show' }
2083 end
2084
2085 * Makes :discard_year work without breaking multi-attribute parsing in AR. #1260, #3800 *sean@ardismg.com, jmartin@desertflood.com, stephen@touset.org, Bob Silva*
2086
2087 * Adds html id attribute to date helper elements. #1050, #1382 *mortonda@dgrmm.net, David North, Bob Silva*
2088
2089 * Add :index and @auto_index capability to model driven date/time selects. #847, #2655 *moriq, Doug Fales, Bob Silva*
2090
2091 * Add :order to datetime_select, select_datetime, and select_date. #1427 *Timothee Peignier, Patrick Lenz, Bob Silva*
2092
2093 * Added time_select to work with time values in models. Update scaffolding. #2489, #2833 *Justin Palmer, Andre Caum, Bob Silva*
2094
2095 * Added :include_seconds to select_datetime, datetime_select and time_select. #2998 *csn, Bob Silva*
2096
2097 * All date/datetime selects can now accept an array of month names with :use_month_names. Allows for localization. #363 *tomasj, Bob Silva*
2098
2099 * Adds :time_separator to select_time and :date_separator to select_datetime. Preserves BC. #3811 *Bob Silva*
2100
2101 * Added map.root as an alias for map.connect '' *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2102
2103 * 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:
2104
2105 GET /posts/5.xml | request.format => Mime::XML
2106 GET /posts/5.xhtml | request.format => Mime::HTML
2107 GET /posts/5 | request.format => request.accepts.first (usually Mime::HTML for browsers)
2108
2109 * Added the option for extension aliases to mime type registration [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example (already in the default routes):
2110
2111 Mime::Type.register "text/html", :html, %w( application/xhtml+xml ), %w( xhtml )
2112
2113 ...will respond on both .html and .xhtml.
2114
2115 * @response.redirect_url works with 201 Created responses: just return headers['Location'] rather than checking the response status. *Jeremy Kemper*
2116
2117 * Added CSV to Mime::SET so that respond_to csv will work *Cody Fauser*
2118
2119 * Fixed that HEAD should return the proper Content-Length header (that is, actually use @body.size, not just 0) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2120
2121 * 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*
2122

2133 * Update to Prototype 1.5.0_rc2 [5550] which makes it work in Opera again *Thomas Fuchs*
2134
2135 * 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*
2136
2137 * ActionView::Base.erb_variable accessor names the buffer variable used to render templates. Defaults to _erbout; use _buf for erubis. *Rick Olson*

2179 Hello world!
2180 <% end %>
2181
2182 Will output:

2208
2209 * Fix broken assert_generates when extra keys are being checked. *Jamis Buck*
2210

2212
2213 * 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.*
2214
2215 * Use String#chars in TextHelper::excerpt. Closes #6386 *Manfred Stienstra*
2216

2226
2227 * Rename test assertion to prevent shadowing. Closes #6306. *psross*
2228
2229 * Fixed that NumberHelper#number_to_delimiter should respect precision of higher than two digits #6231 *Philip Hallstrom*

2234
2235 update_page_tag :defer => 'true' { |page| ... }
2236
2237 Gives:
2238
2239 <script defer="true" type="text/javascript">...</script>
2240
2241 Which is needed for dealing with the IE6 DOM when it's not yet fully loaded.
2242
2243 * Fixed that rescue template path shouldn't be hardcoded, then it's easier to hook in your own #6295 *Mike Naberezny*
2244
2245 * Fixed escaping of backslashes in JavaScriptHelper#escape_javascript #6302 *sven@c3d2.de*
2246

2252
2253 * assert_select_rjs decodes escaped unicode chars since the Javascript generators encode them. #6240 *japgolly*
2254
2255 * Deprecation: @cookies, @headers, @request, @response will be removed after 1.2. Use the corresponding method instead. *Jeremy Kemper*
2256
2257 * 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:
2258
2259 head :status => 404 # expands to "404 Not Found"
2260 head :status => :not_found # expands to "404 Not Found"
2261 head :status => :created # expands to "201 Created"
2262
2263 * Add head(options = {}) for responses that have no body. [Jamis Buck]. Examples:
2264
2265 head :status => 404 # return an empty response with a 404 status
2266 head :location => person_path(@person), :status => 201
2267
2268 * Fix bug that kept any before_filter except the first one from being able to halt the before_filter chain. *Rick Olson*
2269
2270 * strip_links is case-insensitive. #6285 *tagoh, Bob Silva*
2271
2272 * Clear the cache of possible controllers whenever Routes are reloaded. *Nicholas Seckar*
2273
2274 * Filters overhaul including meantime filter support using around filters + blocks. #5949 *Martin Emde, Roman Le Negrate, Stefan Kaes, Jeremy Kemper*

2277
2278 * Update CGI process to allow sessions to contain namespaced models. Closes #4638. *dfelstead@site5.com*
2279
2280 * Fix routing to respect user provided requirements and defaults when assigning default routing options (such as :action => 'index'). Closes #5950. *Nicholas Seckar*
2281
2282 * Rescue Errno::ECONNRESET to handle an unexpectedly closed socket connection. Improves SCGI reliability. #3368, #6226 *sdsykes, fhanshaw@vesaria.com*
2283
2284 * Added that respond_to blocks will automatically set the content type to be the same as is requested [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
2285
2286 respond_to do |format|
2287 format.html { render :text => "I'm being sent as text/html" }
2288 format.rss { render :text => "I'm being sent as application/rss+xml" }
2289 format.atom { render :text => "I'm being sent as application/xml", :content_type => Mime::XML }
2290 end
2291
2292 * Added utf-8 as the default charset for all renders. You can change this default using ActionController::Base.default_charset=(encoding) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2293
2294 * Added proper getters and setters for content type and charset [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example of what we used to do:
2295
2296 response.headers["Content-Type"] = "application/atom+xml; charset=utf-8"
2297
2298 ...now:
2299
2300 response.content_type = Mime::ATOM
2301 response.charset = "utf-8"
2302
2303 * Updated prototype.js to 1.5.0_rc1 with latest fixes. *Rick Olson*

2317 page['test2'].replace_html "<div id=\"2\">foo</div>"
2318
2319 Test it with...

2330
2331 * Fix assert_tag so that :content => "foo" does not match substrings, but only exact strings. Use :content => /foo/ to match substrings. #2799 *Eric Hodel*

2338
2339 * 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:
2340
2341 link_to("Hider", nil, :class => "hider_link") { |p| p[:something].hide }
2342
2343 ...can be written like this:

2345 link_to("Hider", :class => "hider_link") { |p| p[:something].hide }
2346

2404
2405 * Fix send_data documentation typo. #5982 *brad@madriska.com*

2408
2409 * respond_to .html now always renders #{action_name}.rhtml so that registered custom template handlers do not override it in priority. Custom mime types require a block and throw proper error now. *Tobias Lütke*

2454
2455 * Restrict Request Method hacking with ?_method to POST requests. *Rick Olson*
2456

2531
2532 * Rewind readable CGI params so others may reread them (such as CGI::Session when passing the session id in a multipart form). #210 *mklame@atxeu.com, matthew@walker.wattle.id.au*
2533
2534 * Added Mime::TEXT (text/plain) and Mime::ICS (text/calendar) as new default types *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2535
2536 * Added Mime::Type.register(string, symbol, synonyms = []) for adding new custom mime types [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example: Mime::Type.register("image/gif", :gif)
2537
2538 * Added support for Mime objects in render :content_type option [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example: render :text => some_atom, :content_type => Mime::ATOM
2539
2540 * Add :status option to send_data and send_file. Defaults to '200 OK'. #5243 *Manfred Stienstra <m.stienstra@fngtps.com>*
2541
2542 * 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*
2543
2544 map.connect '/foo/:id', :controller => '...', :action => '...'
2545 map.connect '/foo/:id.:format', :controller => '...', :action => '...'
2546 map.connect '/foo/:id', ..., :conditions => { :method => :get }
2547
2548 * Cope with missing content type and length headers. Parse parameters from multipart and urlencoded request bodies only. *Jeremy Kemper*
2549
2550 * Accept multipart PUT parameters. #5235 *guy.naor@famundo.com*
2551
2552 * 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:
2553
2554 class WeblogController < ActionController::Base
2555 def index
2556 @posts = Post.find :all
2557
2558 respond_to do |format|
2559 format.html
2560 format.xml { render :xml => @posts.to_xml }
2561 format.rss { render :action => "feed.rxml" }
2562 end
2563 end
2564 end
2565
2566 \# returns HTML when requested by a browser, since the browser
2567 \# has the HTML mimetype at the top of its priority list
2568 Accept: text/html
2569 GET /weblog
2570
2571 \# returns the XML
2572 Accept: application/xml
2573 GET /weblog
2574
2575 \# returns the HTML
2576 Accept: application/xml
2577 GET /weblog.html
2578
2579 \# returns the XML
2580 Accept: text/html
2581 GET /weblog.xml
2582
2583 All this relies on the fact that you have a route that includes .:format.
2584
2585 * 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*
2586
2587 * 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*
2588
2589 * follow_redirect doesn't complain about being redirected to the same controller. #5153 *dymo@mk.ukrtelecom.ua*
2590
2591 * Add layout attribute to response object with the name of the layout that was rendered, or nil if none rendered. *Kevin Clark*
2592
2593 * Fix NoMethodError when parsing params like &&. *Adam Greenfield*
2594
2595 * Fix flip flopped logic in docs for url_for's :only_path option. Closes #4998. *esad@esse.at*
2596
2597 * form.text_area handles the :size option just like the original text_area (:size => '60x10' becomes cols="60" rows="10"). *Jeremy Kemper*
2598
2599 * Excise ingrown code from FormOptionsHelper#options_for_select. #5008 *anonymous*
2600
2601 * Small fix in routing to allow dynamic routes (broken after [4242]) *Rick Olson*
2602
2603 map.connect '*path', :controller => 'files', :action => 'show'
2604
2605 * Replace alias method chaining with Module#alias_method_chain. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
2606
2607 * Replace Ruby's deprecated append_features in favor of included. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
2608
2609 * Use #flush between switching from #write to #syswrite. Closes #4907. *Blair Zajac <blair@orcaware.com>*
2610
2611 * Documentation fix: integration test scripts don't require integration_test. Closes #4914. *Frederick Ros <sl33p3r@free.fr>*
2612
2613 * ActionController::Base Summary documentation rewrite. Closes #4900. *Kevin Clark*
2614

2616
2617 * Fixes bad rendering of JavaScriptMacrosHelper rdoc (closes #4910) *Frederick Ros*
2618

2620
2621 error_messages_for :account, :user, :subscription, :object_name => :account
2622
2623 * Enhance documentation for setting headers in integration tests. Skip auto HTTP prepending when its already there. Closes #4079. *Rick Olson*
2624
2625 * Documentation for AbstractRequest. Closes #4895. *Kevin Clark*
2626
2627 * Refactor various InstanceTag instance method to class methods. Closes #4800. *Stefan Kaes*
2628
2629 * Remove all remaining references to @params in the documentation. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
2630
2631 * Add documentation for redirect_to :back's RedirectBackError exception. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
2632
2633 * Update layout and content_for documentation to use yield rather than magic @content_for instance variables. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
2634
2635 * Fix assert_redirected_to tests according to real-world usage. Also, don't fail if you add an extra :controller option: *Rick Olson*
2636
2637 redirect_to :action => 'new'
2638 assert_redirected_to :controller => 'monkeys', :action => 'new'
2639
2640 * Cache CgiRequest#request_parameters so that multiple calls don't re-parse multipart data. *Rick Olson*
2641
2642 * Diff compared routing options. Allow #assert_recognizes to take a second arg as a hash to specify optional request method *Rick Olson*
2643
2644 assert_recognizes({:controller => 'users', :action => 'index'}, 'users')
2645 assert_recognizes({:controller => 'users', :action => 'create'}, {:path => 'users', :method => :post})
2646
2647 * Diff compared options with #assert_redirected_to *Rick Olson*
2648
2649 * Add support in routes for semicolon delimited "subpaths", like /books/:id;:action *Jamis Buck*
2650
2651 * 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*
2652
2653 * 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*
2654
2655 * 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*
2656
2657 * 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*
2658 ex. verify :only => :speak, :method => :post,
2659 :render => { :status => 405, :text => "Must be post" },
2660 :add_headers => { "Allow" => "POST" }
2661
2662 * 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*
2663
2664
2665 ## 1.13.3 (March 12th, 2007) ##
2666
2667 * Apply [5709] to stable.
2668
2669 * session_enabled? works with session :off. #6680 *Jonathan del Strother*
2670
2671 * Performance: patch cgi/session to require digest/md5 once rather than per #create_new_id. *Stefan Kaes*
2672
2673
2674 ## 1.13.2 (February 5th, 2007) ##
2675
2676 * Add much-needed html-scanner tests. Fixed CDATA parsing bug. *Rick Olson*
2677
2678 * improve error message for Routing for named routes. *Rob Sanheim*
2679
2680 * Added enhanced docs to routing assertions. *Rob Sanheim*
2681
2682 * fix form_for example in ActionController::Resources documentation. *gnarg*
2683
2684 * Add singleton resources from trunk *Rick Olson*
2685
2686 * select :multiple => true suffixes the attribute name with [] unless already suffixed. #6977 *nik.kakelin, ben, julik*
2687
2688 * Improve routes documentation. #7095 *zackchandler*
2689
2690 * Resource member routes require :id, eliminating the ambiguous overlap with collection routes. #7229 *dkubb*
2691
2692 * Fixed NumberHelper#number_with_delimiter to use "." always for splitting the original number, not the delimiter parameter #7389 *ceefour*
2693
2694 * Autolinking recognizes trailing and embedded . , : ; #7354 *Jarkko Laine*
2695

2719
2720 * Fix HTML::Node to output double quotes instead of single quotes. Closes #6845 *mitreandy*
2721
2722 * Fix no method error with error_messages_on. Closes #6935 *nik.wakelin Koz*
2723
2724 * Slight doc tweak to the ActionView::Helpers::PrototypeHelper#replace docs. Closes #6922 *Steven Bristol*
2725

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

2929
2930 * Added proper getters and setters for content type and charset [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example of what we used to do:
2931
2932 response.headers["Content-Type"] = "application/atom+xml; charset=utf-8"
2933
2934 ...now:
2935
2936 response.content_type = Mime::ATOM
2937 response.charset = "utf-8"
2938
2939 * Declare file extensions exempt from layouts. #6219 *brandon*
2940 Example: ActionController::Base.exempt_from_layout 'rpdf'
2941
2942 * Add chained replace/update support for assert_select_rjs *Rick Olson*

2945
2946 page['test1'].replace "<div id=\"1\">foo</div>"
2947 page['test2'].replace_html "<div id=\"2\">foo</div>"
2948
2949 Test it with...
2950
2951 assert_select_rjs :chained_replace
2952 assert_select_rjs :chained_replace, "test1"
2953
2954 assert_select_rjs :chained_replace_html
2955 assert_select_rjs :chained_replace_html, "test2"
2956
2957 * Load helpers in alphabetical order for consistency. Resolve cyclic javascript_helper dependency. #6132, #6178 *choonkeat@gmail.com*
2958

2960
2961 * Fix assert_tag so that :content => "foo" does not match substrings, but only exact strings. Use :content => /foo/ to match substrings. #2799 *Eric Hodel*

2966
2967 * 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:
2968
2969 link_to("Hider", nil, :class => "hider_link") { |p| p[:something].hide }
2970
2971 ...can be written like this:
2972
2973 link_to("Hider", :class => "hider_link") { |p| p[:something].hide }
2974
2975 * Added access to nested attributes in RJS #4548 [richcollins@gmail.com]. Examples:
2976
2977 page['foo']['style'] # => $('foo').style;
2978 page['foo']['style']['color'] # => $('blank_slate').style.color;
2979 page['foo']['style']['color'] = 'red' # => $('blank_slate').style.color = 'red';
2980 page['foo']['style'].color = 'red' # => $('blank_slate').style.color = 'red';

3015
3016 * Make auto_link parse a greater subset of valid url formats. *Jamis Buck*
3017
3018 * Integration tests: headers beginning with X aren't excluded from the HTTP_ prefix, so X-Requested-With becomes HTTP_X_REQUESTED_WITH as expected. *Mike Clark*
3019
3020 * Switch to using FormEncodedPairParser for parsing request parameters. *Nicholas Seckar, David Heinemeier Hansson*
3021
3022 * respond_to .html now always renders #{action_name}.rhtml so that registered custom template handlers do not override it in priority. Custom mime types require a block and throw proper error now. *Tobias Lütke*

3025
3026 * Add UrlWriter to allow writing urls from Mailers and scripts. *Nicholas Seckar*

3039
3040 * Replace Reloadable with Reloadable::Deprecated. *Nicholas Seckar*

3043
3044 * Add support for the param_name parameter to the auto_complete_field helper. #5026 *david.a.williams@gmail.com*
3045
3046 * 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*
3047
3048 * Make Routing noisy when an anchor regexp is assigned to a segment. #5674 *François Beausoleil*

3053
3054 * Update query parser to support adjacent hashes. *Nicholas Seckar*
3055
3056 * Make action caching aware of different formats for the same action so that, e.g. foo.xml is cached separately from foo.html. Implicitly set content type when reading in cached content with mime revealing extensions so the entire onous isn't on the webserver. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
3057

3065 map.resources :messages, :comments
3066 map.resources :messages, :new => { :preview => :post }
3067
3068 * Fixed that integration simulation of XHRs should set Accept header as well *Edward Frederick*
3069
3070 * TestRequest#reset_session should restore a TestSession, not a hash *Michael Koziarski*
3071
3072 * Don't search a load-path of '.' for controller files *Jamis Buck*
3073
3074 * Update integration.rb to require test_process explicitly instead of via Dependencies. *Nicholas Seckar*
3075

3077
3078 * Allow form_for and fields_for to work with indexed form inputs. *Jeremy Kemper, Matt Lyon*

3088
3089 * Reset @html_document between requests so assert_tag works. #4810 *Jarkko Laine, easleydp@gmail.com*
3090
3091 * Integration tests behave well with render_component. #4632 *edward.frederick@revolution.com, dev.rubyonrails@maxdunn.com*
3092
3093 * Added exception handling of missing layouts #5373 *chris@ozmm.org*
