1b527d7 @lest _html translation should escape interpolated arguments
lest authored
17 * Fix XSS security vulnerability in the `translate` helper method. When using interpolation
18 in combination with HTML-safe translations, the interpolated input would not get HTML
19 escaped. *GH 3664*

21 Before:
22
23 translate('foo_html', :something => '<script>') # => "...<script>..."

jonleighton authored
42 * Implement a workaround for a bug in ruby-1.9.3p0 where an error would be raised
43 while attempting to convert a template from one encoding to another.
44
45 Please see http://redmine.ruby-lang.org/issues/5564 for details of the bug.
46
47 The workaround is to load all conversions into memory ahead of time, and will
48 only happen if the ruby version is *exactly* 1.9.3p0. The hope is obviously that
49 the underlying problem will be resolved in the next patchlevel release of
50 1.9.3.

54 * Ensure users upgrading from 3.0.x to 3.1.x will properly upgrade their flash object in session (issues #3298 and #2509)
55
56 ## Rails 3.1.1 (October 7, 2011) ##
57
58 * stylesheet_link_tag('/stylesheets/application') and similar helpers doesn't
59 throw Sprockets::FileOutsidePaths exception anymore *Santiago Pastorino*
60
61 * Ensure default_asset_host_protocol is respected, closes #2980. *José Valim*
62
63 Changing rake db:schema:dump to run :environment as well as :load_config,
64 as running :load_config alone will lead to the dumper being run without
65 including extensions such as those included in foreigner and
66 spatial_adapter.
67
68 This reverses a change made here:
69 https://github.com/rails/rails/commit/5df72a238e9fcb18daf6ab6e6dc9051c9106d7bb#L0L324
70
71 I'm assuming here that :load_config needs to be invoked
72 separately from :environment, as it is elsewhere in the
73 file for db operations, if not the alternative is to go
74 back to "task :dump => :environment do".
75
76 *Ben Woosley*
77
78 * Update to rack-cache 1.1.
79
80 Versions prior to 1.1 delete the If-Modified-Since and If-Not-Modified
81 headers when config.action_controller.perform_caching is true. This has two
82 problems:
83 * unexpected inconsistent behaviour between development &
84 production environments
85 * breaks applications that use of these headers
86
87 *Brendan Ribera*
88
89 * Ensure that enhancements to assets:precompile task are only run once *Sam Pohlenz*
90
91 * TestCase should respect the view_assigns API instead of pulling variables on
92 its own. *José Valim*
93
94 * javascript_path and stylesheet_path now refer to /assets if asset pipelining
95 is on. *Santiago Pastorino*
96
97 * button_to support form option. Now you're able to pass for example
98 'data-type' => 'json'. *ihower*
99
100 * image_path and image_tag should use /assets if asset pipelining is turned
101 on. Closes #3126 *Santiago Pastorino and christos*
102
103 * Avoid use of existing precompiled assets during rake assets:precompile run.
104 Closes #3119 *Guillermo Iguaran*
105
106 * Copy assets to nondigested filenames too *Santiago Pastorino*
107
108 * Give precedence to `config.digest = false` over the existence of
109 manifest.yml asset digests *christos*
110
111 * escape options for the stylesheet_link_tag method *Alexey Vakhov*
112
113 * Re-launch assets:precompile task using (Rake.)ruby instead of Kernel.exec so
114 it works on Windows *cablegram*
115
116 * env var passed to process shouldn't be modified in process method. [Santiago
117 Pastorino]
118
119 * `rake assets:precompile` loads the application but does not initialize
120 it.
121
122 To the app developer, this means configuration add in
123 config/initializers/* will not be executed.
124
125 Plugins developers need to special case their initializers that are
126 meant to be run in the assets group by adding :group => :assets. *José Valim*
127
128 * Sprockets uses config.assets.prefix for asset_path *asee*
129
130 * FileStore key_file_path properly limit filenames to 255 characters. *phuibonhoa*
131
132 * Fix Hash#to_query edge case with html_safe strings. *brainopia*
133
134 * Allow asset tag helper methods to accept :digest => false option in order to completely avoid the digest generation.
135 Useful for linking assets from static html files or from emails when the user
136 could probably look at an older html email with an older asset. *Santiago Pastorino*
137
138 * Don't mount Sprockets server at config.assets.prefix if config.assets.compile is false. *Mark J. Titorenko*
139
140 * Set relative url root in assets when controller isn't available for Sprockets (eg. Sass files using asset_path). Fixes #2435 *Guillermo Iguaran*
141
142 * Fix basic auth credential generation to not make newlines. GH #2882
143
144 * Fixed the behavior of asset pipeline when config.assets.digest and config.assets.compile are false and requested asset isn't precompiled.
145 Before the requested asset were compiled anyway ignoring that the config.assets.compile flag is false. *Guillermo Iguaran*
146
147 * CookieJar is now Enumerable. Fixes #2795
148
149 * Fixed AssetNotPrecompiled error raised when rake assets:precompile is compiling certain .erb files. See GH #2763 #2765 #2805 *Guillermo Iguaran*
150
151 * Manifest is correctly placed in assets path when default assets prefix is changed. Fixes #2776 *Guillermo Iguaran*
152
153 * Fixed stylesheet_link_tag and javascript_include_tag to respect additional options passed by the users when debug is on. *Guillermo Iguaran*
154
155 * Fix ActiveRecord#exists? when passsed a nil value
156
157 * Fix assert_select_email to work on multipart and non-multipart emails as the method stopped working correctly in Rails 3.x due to changes in the new mail gem.
158
159
160 ## Rails 3.1.0 (August 30, 2011) ##
161
162 * Param values are `paramified` in controller tests. *David Chelimsky*
163
164 * 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*
165
166 * The submit form helper does not generate an id "object_name_id" anymore. *fbrusatti*
167
168 * Make sure respond_with with :js tries to render a template in all cases *José Valim*
169
170 * json_escape will now return a SafeBuffer string if it receives SafeBuffer string *tenderlove*
171
172 * Make sure escape_js returns SafeBuffer string if it receives SafeBuffer string *Prem Sichanugrist*
173
174 * Fix escape_js to work correctly with the new SafeBuffer restriction *Paul Gallagher*
175
176 * Brought back alternative convention for namespaced models in i18n *thoefer*
177
178 Now the key can be either "namespace.model" or "namespace/model" until further deprecation.
179
180 * It is prohibited to perform a in-place SafeBuffer mutation *tenderlove*
181
182 The old behavior of SafeBuffer allowed you to mutate string in place via
183 method like `sub!`. These methods can add unsafe strings to a safe buffer,
184 and the safe buffer will continue to be marked as safe.
185
186 An example problem would be something like this:
187
188 <%= link_to('hello world', @user).sub!(/hello/, params[:xss]) %>
189
190 In the above example, an untrusted string (`params[:xss]`) is added to the
191 safe buffer returned by `link_to`, and the untrusted content is successfully
192 sent to the client without being escaped. To prevent this from happening
193 `sub!` and other similar methods will now raise an exception when they are called on a safe buffer.
194
195 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:
196
197 <%= link_to('hello world', @user).sub(/hello/, params[:xss]) %>
198
199 The new versions will now ensure that *all* strings returned by these methods on safe buffers are marked unsafe.
200
201 You can read more about this change in http://groups.google.com/group/rubyonrails-security/browse_thread/thread/2e516e7acc96c4fb
202
203 * Warn if we cannot verify CSRF token authenticity *José Valim*
204
205 * Allow AM/PM format in datetime selectors *Aditya Sanghi*
206
207 * Only show dump of regular env methods on exception screen (not all the rack crap) *DHH*
208
209 * auto_link has been removed with no replacement. If you still use auto_link
210 please install the rails_autolink gem:
211 http://github.com/tenderlove/rails_autolink
212
213 *tenderlove*
214
215 * Added streaming support, you can enable it with: *José Valim*
216
217 class PostsController < ActionController::Base
218 stream :only => :index
219 end
220
221 Please read the docs at `ActionController::Streaming` for more information.
222
223 * Added `ActionDispatch::Request.ignore_accept_header` to ignore accept headers and only consider the format given as parameter *José Valim*
224
225 * Created `ActionView::Renderer` and specified an API for `ActionView::Context`, check those objects for more information *José Valim*
226
227 * 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*
228
229 This can be customized by setting `ActionController::Base.wrap_parameters` in `config/initializer/wrap_parameters.rb`
230
231 * RJS has been extracted out to a gem. *fxn*
232
233 * Implicit actions named not_implemented can be rendered. *Santiago Pastorino*
234
235 * Wildcard route will always match the optional format segment by default. *Prem Sichanugrist*
236
237 For example if you have this route:
238
239 map '*pages' => 'pages#show'
240
241 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:
242
243 map '*pages' => 'pages#show', :format => false
244
245 * Added Base.http_basic_authenticate_with to do simple http basic authentication with a single class method call *DHH*
246
247 class PostsController < ApplicationController
248 USER_NAME, PASSWORD = "dhh", "secret"
249
250 before_filter :authenticate, :except => [ :index ]
251
252 def index
253 render :text => "Everyone can see me!"
254 end
255
256 def edit
257 render :text => "I'm only accessible if you know the password"
258 end
259
260 private
261 def authenticate
262 authenticate_or_request_with_http_basic do |user_name, password|
263 user_name == USER_NAME && password == PASSWORD
264 end
265 end
266 end
267
268 ..can now be written as
269
270 class PostsController < ApplicationController
271 http_basic_authenticate_with :name => "dhh", :password => "secret", :except => :index
272
273 def index
274 render :text => "Everyone can see me!"
275 end
276
277 def edit
278 render :text => "I'm only accessible if you know the password"
279 end
280 end
281
282 * 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*
283
284 * Allow FormHelper#form_for to specify the :method as a direct option instead of through the :html hash *DHH*
285
286 form_for(@post, remote: true, method: :delete) instead of form_for(@post, remote: true, html: { method: :delete })
287
288 * 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*
289
290 * 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*
291
292 * URL parameters which return false for to_param now appear in the query string (previously they were removed) *Andrew White*
293
294 * URL parameters which return nil for to_param are now removed from the query string *Andrew White*
295
296 * ActionDispatch::MiddlewareStack now uses composition over inheritance. It is
297 no longer an array which means there may be methods missing that were not
298 tested.
299
300 * Add an :authenticity_token option to form_tag for custom handling or to omit the token (pass :authenticity_token => false). *Jakub Kuźma, Igor Wiedler*
301
302 * HTML5 button_tag helper. *Rizwan Reza*
303
304 * Template lookup now searches further up in the inheritance chain. *Artemave*
305
306 * Brought back config.action_view.cache_template_loading, which allows to decide whether templates should be cached or not. *Piotr Sarnacki*
307
308 * url_for and named url helpers now accept :subdomain and :domain as options, *Josh Kalderimis*
309
310 * 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*
311
312 * 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*
313
314 * Added a convenience idiom to generate HTML5 data-* attributes in tag helpers from a :data hash of options:
315
316 tag("div", :data => {:name => 'Stephen', :city_state => %w(Chicago IL)})
317 # => <div data-name="Stephen" data-city-state="[&quot;Chicago&quot;,&quot;IL&quot;]" />
318
319 Keys are dasherized. Values are JSON-encoded, except for strings and symbols. *Stephen Celis*
320
321 * Deprecate old template handler API. The new API simply requires a template handler to respond to call. *José Valim*
322
323 * :rhtml and :rxml were finally removed as template handlers. *José Valim*
324
325 * Moved etag responsibility from ActionDispatch::Response to the middleware stack. *José Valim*
326
327 * 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*
328
329 * file_field automatically adds :multipart => true to the enclosing form. *Santiago Pastorino*
330
331 * Renames csrf_meta_tag -> csrf_meta_tags, and aliases csrf_meta_tag for backwards compatibility. *fxn*
332
333 * 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*
334
335
336 ## Rails 3.0.7 (April 18, 2011) ##
337
338 * No changes.
339
340
341 * Rails 3.0.6 (April 5, 2011)
342
343 * Fixed XSS vulnerability in `auto_link`. `auto_link` no longer marks input as
344 html safe. Please make sure that calls to auto_link() are wrapped in a
345 sanitize(), or a raw() depending on the type of input passed to auto_link().
346 For example:
347
348 <%= sanitize(auto_link(some_user_input)) %>
349
350 Thanks to Torben Schulz for reporting this. The fix can be found here:
351 61ee3449674c591747db95f9b3472c5c3bd9e84d
352
353 * 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*
354
355 * Fixes an issue with number_to_human when converting values which are less than 1 but greater than -1 *Josh Kalderimis*
356
357 * 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*
358
359 * URL parameters which return nil for to_param are now removed from the query string *Andrew White*
360
361 * Don't allow i18n to change the minor version, version now set to ~> 0.5.0 *Santiago Pastorino*
362
363 * Make TranslationHelper#translate use the :rescue_format option in I18n 0.5.0 *Sven Fuchs*
364
365 * Fix regression: javascript_include_tag shouldn't raise if you register an expansion key with nil or [] value *Santiago Pastorino*
366
367 * 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*
368
369
370 ## Rails 3.0.5 (February 26, 2011) ##
371
372 * No changes.
373
374
375 ## Rails 3.0.4 (February 8, 2011) ##
376
377 * No changes.
378
379
380 ## Rails 3.0.3 (November 16, 2010) ##
381
382 * When ActiveRecord::Base objects are sent to predicate methods, the id of the object should be sent to ARel, not the ActiveRecord::Base object.
383
384 * :constraints routing should only do sanity checks against regular expressions. String arguments are OK.
385
386
387 ## Rails 3.0.2 (November 15, 2010) ##
388
389 * The helper number_to_currency accepts a new :negative_format option to be able to configure how to render negative amounts. *Don Wilson*
390
391
392 ## Rails 3.0.1 (October 15, 2010) ##
393
394 * No Changes, just a version bump.
395
396
397 ## Rails 3.0.0 (August 29, 2010) ##
398
399 * 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*
400
401 * 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*
402
403 * 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*
404
405 * Support routing constraints in functional tests. *Andrew White*
406
407 * Add a header that tells Internet Explorer (all versions) to use the best available standards support. *Yehuda Katz*
408
409 * Allow stylesheet/javascript extensions to be changed through railties. *Josh Kalderimis*
410
411 * link_to, button_to, and tag/tag_options now rely on html_escape instead of escape_once. *fxn*
412
413 * url_for returns always unescaped strings, and the :escape option is gone. *fxn*
414
415 * Added accept-charset parameter and _snowman hidden field to force the contents
416 of Rails POSTed forms to be in UTF-8 *Yehuda Katz*
417
418 * Upgrade to Rack 1.2.1 *Jeremy Kemper*
419
420 * Allow :path to be given to match/get/post/put/delete instead of :path_names in the new router *Carlos Antônio da Silva*
421
422 * Added resources_path_names to the new router DSL *José Valim*
423
424 * Allow options to be given to the namespace method in the new router *Carlos Antônio da Silva*
425
426 * Deprecate :name_prefix in the new router DSL *José Valim*
427
428 * Add shallow routes back to the new router *Diego Carrion, Andrew White*
429
430 resources :posts do
431 shallow do
432 resources :comments
433 end
434 end
435
436 You can now use comment_path for /comments/1 instead of post_comment_path for /posts/1/comments/1.
437
438 * 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*
439
440 * Removed textilize, textilize_without_paragraph and markdown helpers. *Santiago Pastorino*
441
442 * Remove middleware laziness *José Valim*
443
444 * Make session stores rely on request.cookie_jar and change set_session semantics to return the cookie value instead of a boolean. *José Valim*
445
446 * OAuth 2: HTTP Token Authorization support to complement Basic and Digest Authorization. *Rick Olson*
447
448 * Fixed inconsistencies in form builder and view helpers #4432 *Neeraj Singh*
449
450 * 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*
451
452 * Renamed the field error CSS class from fieldWithErrors to field_with_errors for consistency. *Jeremy Kemper*
453
454 * Add support for shorthand routes like /projects/status(.:format) #4423 *Diego Carrion*
455
456 * 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*
457
458 * 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*
459
460 * Removed verify method in controllers. *JV*
461 It's now available as a plugin at http://github.com/rails/verification
462
463 * Removed input, form, error_messages_for and error_message_on from views. *JV*
464 It's now available as a plugin at http://github.com/rails/dynamic_form
465
466 * Routes can be scoped by controller module. *Jeremy Kemper*
467
468 # /session => Auth::SessionsController
469 scope :module => 'auth' do
470 resource :session
471 end

473 * Added #favicon_link_tag, it uses #image_path so in particular the favicon gets an asset ID *fxn*
474
475 * Fixed that default locale templates should be used if the current locale template is missing *DHH*
476
477 * Added all the new HTML5 form types as individual form tag methods (search, url, number, etc) #3646 *Stephen Celis*
478
479 * Changed the object used in routing constraints to be an instance of
480 ActionDispatch::Request rather than Rack::Request *YK*
481
482 * Changed ActionDispatch::Request#method to return a String, to be compatible
483 with Rack::Request. Added ActionDispatch::Request#method_symbol to
484 return a symbol form of the request method. *YK*
485
486 * Changed ActionDispatch::Request#method to return the original
487 method and #request_method to return the overridden method in the
488 case of methodoverride being used (this means that #method returns
489 "HEAD" and #request_method returns "GET" in HEAD requests). This
490 is for compatibility with Rack::Request *YK*
491
492 * #concat is now deprecated in favor of using <%= %> helpers *YK*
493
494 * Block helpers now return Strings, so you can use <%= form_for @foo do |f| %>.
495 <% form_for do |f| %> still works with deprecation notices *YK*
496
497 * Add a new #mount method on the router that does not anchor the PATH_INFO
498 at the end *YK & CL*
499
500 * Create a new LookupContext object that is responsible for performantly
501 finding a template for a given pattern *JV*
502
503 * Removed relative_url_for in favor of respecting SCRIPT_NAME *YK & CL*
504
505 * Changed file streaming to use Rack::Sendfile middleware *YK*
506
507 * ActionDispatch::Request#content_type returns a String to be compatible with
508 Rack::Request. Use #content_mime_type for the Mime::Type instance *YK*
509
510 * Updated Prototype to 1.6.1 and Scriptaculous to 1.8.3 *ML*
511
512 * Change the preferred way that URL helpers are included into a class*YK & CL*
513
514 # for all helpers including named routes
515 include Rails.application.router.url_helpers
516
517 # for just url_for
518 include Rails.application.router.url_for
519
520 * Fixed that PrototypeHelper#update_page should return html_safe *DHH*
521
522 * Fixed that much of DateHelper wouldn't return html_safe? strings *DHH*
523
524 * Fixed that fragment caching should return a cache hit as html_safe (or it would all just get escaped) *DHH*
525
526 * Added that ActionController::Base now does helper :all instead of relying on the default ApplicationController in Rails to do it *DHH*
527
528 * Added ActionDispatch::Request#authorization to access the http authentication header regardless of its proxy hiding *DHH*
529
530 * Added :alert, :notice, and :flash as options to ActionController::Base#redirect_to that'll automatically set the proper flash before the redirection [DHH]. Examples:
531
532 flash[:notice] = 'Post was created'
533 redirect_to(@post)
534
535 ...becomes:
536
537 redirect_to(@post, :notice => 'Post was created')
538
539 * 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*
540
541
542 * Introduce grouped_collection_select helper. #1249 *Dan Codeape, Erik Ostrom*
543
544 * Make sure javascript_include_tag/stylesheet_link_tag does not append ".js" or ".css" onto external urls. #1664 *Matthew Rudy Jacobs*
545
546 * Ruby 1.9: fix Content-Length for multibyte send_data streaming. #2661 *Sava Chankov*
547
548 * Ruby 1.9: ERB template encoding using a magic comment at the top of the file. *Jeremy Kemper*
549 <%# encoding: utf-8 %>
550
551 * Change integration test helpers to accept Rack environment instead of just HTTP Headers *Pratik Naik*
552
553 Before : get '/path', {}, 'Accept' => 'text/javascript'
554 After : get '/path', {}, 'HTTP_ACCEPT' => 'text/javascript'
555
556 * Instead of checking Rails.env.test? in Failsafe middleware, check env["rails.raise_exceptions"] *Bryan Helmkamp*
557
558 * Fixed that TestResponse.cookies was returning cookies unescaped #1867 *Doug McInnes*
559
560
561 ## 2.3.2 Final (March 15, 2009) ##
562
563 * Fixed that redirection would just log the options, not the final url (which lead to "Redirected to #<Post:0x23150b8>") *DHH*
564
565 * Don't check authenticity tokens for any AJAX requests *Ross Kaffenberger/Bryan Helmkamp*
566
567 * Added ability to pass in :public => true to fresh_when, stale?, and expires_in to make the request proxy cachable #2095 *Gregg Pollack*
568
569 * Fixed that passing a custom form builder would be forwarded to nested fields_for calls #2023 *Eloy Duran/Nate Wiger*
570
571 * Form option helpers now support disabled option tags and the use of lambdas for selecting/disabling option tags from collections #837 *Tekin*
572
573 * 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*
574
575 * Fix a syntax error in current_page?() that was prevent matches against URL's with multiple query parameters #1385, #1868 *chris finne/Andrew White*
576
577 * Added localized rescue template when I18n.locale is set (ex: public/404.da.html) #1835 *José Valim*
578
579 * Make the form_for and fields_for helpers support the new Active Record nested update options. #1202 *Eloy Duran*
580
581 <% form_for @person do |person_form| %>
582 ...
583 <% person_form.fields_for :projects do |project_fields| %>
584 <% if project_fields.object.active? %>
585 Name: <%= project_fields.text_field :name %>
586 <% end %>
587 <% end %>
588 <% end %>
589
590
591 * Added grouped_options_for_select helper method for wrapping option tags in optgroups. #977 *Jon Crawford*
592
593 * Implement HTTP Digest authentication. #1230 [Gregg Kellogg, Pratik Naik] Example :
594
595 class DummyDigestController < ActionController::Base
596 USERS = { "lifo" => 'world' }
597
598 before_filter :authenticate
599
600 def index
601 render :text => "Hello Secret"
602 end
603
604 private
605
606 def authenticate
607 authenticate_or_request_with_http_digest("Super Secret") do |username|
608 # Return the user's password
609 USERS[username]
610 end
611 end
612 end
613
614 * Improved i18n support for the number_to_human_size helper. Changes the storage_units translation data; update your translations accordingly. #1634 *Yaroslav Markin*
615 storage_units:
616 # %u is the storage unit, %n is the number (default: 2 MB)
617 format: "%n %u"
618 units:
619 byte:
620 one: "Byte"
621 other: "Bytes"
622 kb: "KB"
623 mb: "MB"
624 gb: "GB"
625 tb: "TB"
626
627 * Added :silence option to BenchmarkHelper#benchmark and turned log_level into a hash parameter and deprecated the old use *DHH*
628
629 * 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*
630
631 * Make ActionController#render(string) work as a shortcut for render :file/:template/:action => string. [#1435] [Pratik Naik] Examples:
632
633 \# Instead of render(:action => 'other_action')
634 render('other_action') # argument has no '/'
635 render(:other_action)
636
637 \# Instead of render(:template => 'controller/action')
638 render('controller/action') # argument must not begin with a '/', but contain a '/'
639
640 \# Instead of render(:file => '/Users/lifo/home.html.erb')
641 render('/Users/lifo/home.html.erb') # argument must begin with a '/'
642
643 * Add :prompt option to date/time select helpers. #561 *Sam Oliver*
644
645 * Fixed that send_file shouldn't set an etag #1578 *Hongli Lai*
646
647 * Allow users to opt out of the spoofing checks in Request#remote_ip. Useful for sites whose traffic regularly triggers false positives. *Darren Boyd*
648
649 * Deprecated formatted_polymorphic_url. *Jeremy Kemper*
650
651 * 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*
652
653 * 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*
654
655 * Dropped formatted_* routes in favor of just passing in :format as an option. This cuts resource routes generation in half #1359 *aaronbatalion*
656
657 * 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*
658
659 * Allow helpers directory to be overridden via ActionController::Base.helpers_dir #1424 *Sam Pohlenz*
660
661 * Remove deprecated ActionController::Base#assign_default_content_type_and_charset
662
663 * Changed the default of ActionView#render to assume partials instead of files when not given an options hash [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
664
665 # Instead of <%= render :partial => "account" %>
666 <%= render "account" %>
667
668 # Instead of <%= render :partial => "account", :locals => { :account => @buyer } %>
669 <%= render "account", :account => @buyer %>
670
671 # @account is an Account instance, so it uses the RecordIdentifier to replace
672 # <%= render :partial => "accounts/account", :locals => { :account => @account } %>
673 <%= render(@account) %>
674
675 # @posts is an array of Post instances, so it uses the RecordIdentifier to replace
676 # <%= render :partial => "posts/post", :collection => @posts %>
677 <%= render(@posts) %>
678
679 * Remove deprecated render_component. Please use the plugin from http://github.com/rails/render_component/tree/master *Pratik Naik*
680
681 * 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*
682
683
684 ## 2.2.2 (November 21st, 2008) ##
685
686 * I18n: translate number_to_human_size. Add storage_units: [Bytes, KB, MB, GB, TB] to your translations. #1448 *Yaroslav Markin*
687
688 * Restore backwards compatible functionality for setting relative_url_root. Include deprecation
689
690 * Switched the CSRF module to use the request content type to decide if the request is forgeable. #1145 *Jeff Cohen*
691
692 * 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*
693
694 map.resources :products, :only => :show do |product|
695 product.resources :images, :except => :destroy
696 end
697
698 * Added render :js for people who want to render inline JavaScript replies without using RJS *David Heinemeier Hansson*
699
700 * Fixed that polymorphic_url should compact given array #1317 *hiroshi*
701
702 * Fixed the sanitize helper to avoid double escaping already properly escaped entities #683 *antonmos/Ryan McGeary*
703
704 * Fixed that FormTagHelper generated illegal html if name contained square brackets #1238 *Vladimir Dobriakov*
705
706 * 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*
707
708 * Simplified the logging format for parameters (don't include controller, action, and format as duplicates) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
709
710 * Remove the logging of the Session ID when the session store is CookieStore *David Heinemeier Hansson*
711
712 * Fixed regex in redirect_to to fully support URI schemes #1247 *Seth Fitzsimmons*
713
714 * Fixed bug with asset timestamping when using relative_url_root #1265 *Joe Goldwasser*
715
716
717 ## 2.2.0 RC1 (October 24th, 2008) ##
718
719 * Fix incorrect closing CDATA delimiter and that HTML::Node.parse would blow up on unclosed CDATA sections *packagethief*
720
721 * Added stale? and fresh_when methods to provide a layer of abstraction above request.fresh? and friends [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
722
723 class ArticlesController < ApplicationController
724 def show_with_respond_to_block
725 @article = Article.find(params[:id])
726
727
728 # If the request sends headers that differs from the options provided to stale?, then
729 # the request is indeed stale and the respond_to block is triggered (and the options
730 # to the stale? call is set on the response).
731 #
732 # If the request headers match, then the request is fresh and the respond_to block is
733 # not triggered. Instead the default render will occur, which will check the last-modified
734 # and etag headers and conclude that it only needs to send a "304 Not Modified" instead
735 # of rendering the template.
736 if stale?(:last_modified => @article.published_at.utc, :etag => @article)
737 respond_to do |wants|
738 # normal response processing
739 end
740 end
741 end
742
743 def show_with_implied_render
744 @article = Article.find(params[:id])
745
746 # Sets the response headers and checks them against the request, if the request is stale
747 # (i.e. no match of either etag or last-modified), then the default render of the template happens.
748 # If the request is fresh, then the default render will return a "304 Not Modified"
749 # instead of rendering the template.
750 fresh_when(:last_modified => @article.published_at.utc, :etag => @article)
751 end
752 end
753
754
755 * Added inline builder yield to atom_feed_helper tags where appropriate [Sam Ruby]. Example:
756
757 entry.summary :type => 'xhtml' do |xhtml|
758 xhtml.p pluralize(order.line_items.count, "line item")
759 xhtml.p "Shipped to #{order.address}"
760 xhtml.p "Paid by #{order.pay_type}"
761 end
762
763 * Make PrototypeHelper#submit_to_remote a wrapper around PrototypeHelper#button_to_remote. *Tarmo Tänav*
764
765 * Set HttpOnly for the cookie session store's cookie. #1046
766
767 * Added FormTagHelper#image_submit_tag confirm option #784 *Alastair Brunton*
768
769 * Fixed FormTagHelper#submit_tag with :disable_with option wouldn't submit the button's value when was clicked #633 *Jose Fernandez*
770
771 * Stopped logging template compiles as it only clogs up the log *David Heinemeier Hansson*
772
773 * Changed the X-Runtime header to report in milliseconds *David Heinemeier Hansson*
774
775 * Changed BenchmarkHelper#benchmark to report in milliseconds *David Heinemeier Hansson*
776
777 * Changed logging format to be millisecond based and skip misleading stats [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Went from:
778
779 Completed in 0.10000 (4 reqs/sec) | Rendering: 0.04000 (40%) | DB: 0.00400 (4%) | 200 OK [http://example.com]
780
781 ...to:
782
783 Completed in 100ms (View: 40, DB: 4) | 200 OK [http://example.com]
784
785 * Add support for shallow nesting of routes. #838 *S. Brent Faulkner*
786
787 Example :
788
789 map.resources :users, :shallow => true do |user|
790 user.resources :posts
791 end
792
793 - GET /users/1/posts (maps to PostsController#index action as usual)
794 named route "user_posts" is added as usual.
795
796 - GET /posts/2 (maps to PostsController#show action as if it were not nested)
797 Additionally, named route "post" is added too.
798
799 * Added button_to_remote helper. #3641 *Donald Piret, Tarmo Tänav*
800
801 * Deprecate render_component. Please use render_component plugin from http://github.com/rails/render_component/tree/master *Pratik Naik*
802
803 * Routes may be restricted to lists of HTTP methods instead of a single method or :any. #407 *Brennan Dunn, Gaius Centus Novus*
804 map.resource :posts, :collection => { :search => [:get, :post] }
805 map.session 'session', :requirements => { :method => [:get, :post, :delete] }
806
807 * Deprecated implicit local assignments when rendering partials *Josh Peek*
808
809 * Introduce current_cycle helper method to return the current value without bumping the cycle. #417 *Ken Collins*
810
811 * Allow polymorphic_url helper to take url options. #880 *Tarmo Tänav*
812
813 * Switched integration test runner to use Rack processor instead of CGI *Josh Peek*
814
815 * Made AbstractRequest.if_modified_sense return nil if the header could not be parsed *Jamis Buck*
816
817 * Added back ActionController::Base.allow_concurrency flag *Josh Peek*
818
819 * 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*
820
821 * Update Prototype to 1.6.0.2 #599 *Patrick Joyce*
822
823 * Conditional GET utility methods. *Jeremy Kemper*
824 response.last_modified = @post.updated_at
825 response.etag = [:admin, @post, current_user]
826
827 if request.fresh?(response)
828 head :not_modified
829 else
830 # render ...
831 end
832
833 * All 2xx requests are considered successful *Josh Peek*
834
835 * 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*
836
837 * Removed config.action_view.cache_template_loading, use config.cache_classes instead *Josh Peek*
838
839 * Get buffer for fragment cache from template's @output_buffer *Josh Peek*
840
841 * 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*
842
843 * Refactor template preloading. New abstractions include Renderable mixins and a refactored Template class *Josh Peek*
844
845 * Changed ActionView::TemplateHandler#render API method signature to render(template, local_assigns = {}) *Josh Peek*
846
847 * 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*
848
849 * Add :recursive option to javascript_include_tag and stylesheet_link_tag to be used along with :all. #480 *Damian Janowski*
850
851 * Allow users to disable the use of the Accept header *Michael Koziarski*
852
853 The accept header is poorly implemented by browsers and causes strange
854 errors when used on public sites where crawlers make requests too. You
855 can use formatted urls (e.g. /people/1.xml) to support API clients in a
856 much simpler way.
857
858 To disable the header you need to set:
859
860 config.action_controller.use_accept_header = false
861
862 * 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*
863
864 * Deprecated TemplateHandler line offset *Josh Peek*
865
866 * Allow caches_action to accept cache store options. #416. [José Valim]. Example:
867
868 caches_action :index, :redirected, :if => Proc.new { |c| !c.request.format.json? }, :expires_in => 1.hour
869
870 * Remove define_javascript_functions, javascript_include_tag and friends are far superior. *Michael Koziarski*
871
872 * Deprecate :use_full_path render option. The supplying the option no longer has an effect *Josh Peek*
873
874 * Add :as option to render a collection of partials with a custom local variable name. #509 *Simon Jefford, Pratik Naik*
875
876 render :partial => 'other_people', :collection => @people, :as => :person
877
878 This will let you access objects of @people as 'person' local variable inside 'other_people' partial template.
879
880 * time_zone_select: support for regexp matching of priority zones. Resolves #195 *Ernie Miller*
881
882 * Made ActionView::Base#render_file private *Josh Peek*
883
884 * 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*
885
886 This could cause some erroneous test failures if you were redirecting between controllers
887 in different namespaces and wrote your assertions relative to the root of the application.
888
889 * Remove follow_redirect from controller functional tests.
890
891 If you want to follow redirects you can use integration tests. The functional test
892 version was only useful if you were using redirect_to :id=>...
893
894 * Fix polymorphic_url with singleton resources. #461 *Tammer Saleh*
895
896 * Replaced TemplateFinder abstraction with ViewLoadPaths *Josh Peek*
897
898 * Added block-call style to link_to [Sam Stephenson/David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
899
900 <% link_to(@profile) do %>
901 <strong><%= @profile.name %></strong> -- <span>Check it out!!</span>
902 <% end %>
903
904 * Performance: integration test benchmarking and profiling. *Jeremy Kemper*
905
906 * Make caching more aware of mime types. Ensure request format is not considered while expiring cache. *Jonathan del Strother*
907
908 * Drop ActionController::Base.allow_concurrency flag *Josh Peek*
909
910 * More efficient concat and capture helpers. Remove ActionView::Base.erb_variable. *Jeremy Kemper*
911
912 * Added page.reload functionality. Resolves #277. *Sean Huber*
913
914 * 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*
915
916 * Allow caches_action to accept a layout option *José Valim*
917
918 * Added Rack processor *Ezra Zygmuntowicz, Josh Peek*
919
920
921 ## 2.1.0 (May 31st, 2008) ##
922
923 * InstanceTag#default_time_from_options overflows to DateTime *Geoff Buesing*
924
925 * Fixed that forgery protection can be used without session tracking (Peter Jones) *#139*
926
927 * Added session(:on) to turn session management back on in a controller subclass if the superclass turned it off (Peter Jones) *#136*
928
929 * 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*
930 * 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*
931
932 * select_date defaults to Time.zone.today when config.time_zone is set *Geoff Buesing*
933
934 * Fixed that TextHelper#text_field would corrypt when raw HTML was used as the value (mchenryc, Kevin Glowacz) *#80*
935
936 * 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*
937
938 * Reduce number of instance variables being copied from controller to view. *Pratik Naik*
939
940 * select_datetime and select_time default to Time.zone.now when config.time_zone is set *Geoff Buesing*
941

1347

1362
1363 * Added that render :json will automatically call .to_json unless it's being passed a string [David Heinemeier Hansson].
1364
1365 * Autolink behaves well with emails embedded in URLs. #7313 *Jeremy McAnally, Tarmo Tänav*
1366
1367 * Fixed that default layouts did not take the format into account #9564 *Pratik Naik*
1368
1369 * Fixed optimized route segment escaping. #9562 *wildchild, Jeremy Kemper*
1370
1371 * Added block acceptance to JavaScriptHelper#javascript_tag. #7527 *Bob Silva, Tarmo Tänav, rmm5t*
1372
1373 * root_path returns '/' not ''. #9563 *Pratik Naik*
1374
1375 * Fixed that setting request.format should also affect respond_to blocks *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1376
1377 * Add option to force binary mode on tempfile used for fixture_file_upload. #6380 *Jonathan Viney*
1378
1379 * Fixed that resource namespaces wouldn't stick to all nested resources #9399 *pixeltrix*
1380
1381 * Moved ActionController::Macros::AutoComplete into the auto_complete plugin on the official Rails svn. #9512 *Pratik Naik*
1382
1383 * Moved ActionController::Macros::InPlaceEditing into the in_place_editor plugin on the official Rails svn. #9513 *Pratik Naik*
1384
1385 * Removed deprecated form of calling xml_http_request/xhr without the first argument being the http verb *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1386
1387 * Removed deprecated methods [David Heinemeier Hansson]:
1388
1389 - ActionController::Base#keep_flash (use flash.keep instead)
1390 - ActionController::Base#expire_matched_fragments (just call expire_fragment with a regular expression)
1391 - ActionController::Base.template_root/= methods (use ActionController#Base.view_paths/= instead)
1392 - ActionController::Base.cookie (use ActionController#Base.cookies[]= instead)
1393
1394 * Removed the deprecated behavior of appending ".png" to image_tag/image_path calls without an existing extension *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1395
1396 * 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*
1397
1398 * Optimise named route generation when using positional arguments. *Michael Koziarski*
1399
1400 This change delivers significant performance benefits for the most
1401 common usage scenarios for modern rails applications by avoiding the
1402 costly trip through url_for. Initial benchmarks indicate this is
1403 between 6 and 20 times as fast.
1404
1405 * Explicitly require active_record/query_cache before using it. *Jeremy Kemper*
1406
1407 * Fix layout overriding response status. #9476 *lotswholetime*
1408
1409 * Add field_set_tag for generating field_sets, closes #9477. *Damian Janowski*
1410
1411 * Allow additional parameters to be passed to named route helpers when using positional arguments. Closes #8930 *Ian White*
1412
1413 * Make render :partial work with a :collection of Hashes, previously this wasn't possible due to backwards compatibility restrictions. *Pratik Naik*
1414
1415 * request.host works with IPv6 addresses. #9458 *yuya*
1416
1417 * Fix bug where action caching sets the content type to the ActionCachePath object. Closes #9282 *mindforge*
1418
1419 * Find layouts even if they're not in the first view_paths directory. Closes #9258 *caio*
1420
1421 * Major improvement to the documentation for the options / select form helpers. Closes #9038 *Chris Kampmeier, jardeon, wesg*
1422
1423 * Fix number_to_human_size when using different precisions. Closes #7536. *RichardStrand, mpalmer*
1424
1425 * Added partial layouts (see example in action_view/lib/partials.rb) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1426
1427 * Allow you to set custom :conditions on resource routes. *Rick Olson*
1428
1429 * Fixed that file.content_type for uploaded files would include a trailing \r #9053 *Brad Greenlee*
1430
1431 * url_for now accepts a series of symbols representing the namespace of the record *Josh Knowles*
1432
1433 * Make :trailing_slash work with query parameters for url_for. Closes #4004 *nov*
1434
1435 * Make sure missing template exceptions actually say which template they were looking for. Closes #8683 *dasil003*
1436
1437 * Fix errors with around_filters which do not yield, restore 1.1 behaviour with after filters. Closes #8891 *Stefan Kaes*
1438
1439 After filters will *no longer* be run if an around_filter fails to yield, users relying on
1440 this behaviour are advised to put the code in question after a yield statement in an around filter.
1441
1442
1443 * Allow you to delete cookies with options. Closes #3685 *Josh Peek, Chris Wanstrath*
1444
1445 * Allow you to render views with periods in the name. Closes #8076 *Norbert Crombach*
1446
1447 render :partial => 'show.html.erb'
1448
1449 * Improve capture helper documentation. #8796 *Chris Kampmeier*
1450
1451 * 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*
1452
1453 * Allow sweepers to be created solely for expiring after controller actions, not model changes *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1454
1455 * Added assigns method to ActionController::Caching::Sweeper to easily access instance variables on the controller *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1456
1457 * Give the legacy X-POST_DATA_FORMAT header greater precedence during params parsing for backward compatibility. *Jeremy Kemper*
1458
1459 * Fixed that link_to with an href of # when using :method will not allow for click-through without JavaScript #7037 *Steven Bristol, Josh Peek*
1460
1461 * Fixed that radio_button_tag should generate unique ids #3353 *Bob Silva, Rebecca, Josh Peek*
1462
1463 * Fixed that HTTP authentication should work if the header is called REDIRECT_X_HTTP_AUTHORIZATION as well #6754 *Mislav Marohnić*
1464
1465 * Don't mistakenly interpret the request uri as the query string. #8731 *Pratik Naik, Jeremy Kemper*
1466
1467 * 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*
1468
1469 * Tolerate missing content type on multipart file uploads. Fix for Safari 3. *Jeremy Kemper*
1470
1471 * Deprecation: remove pagination. Install the classic_pagination plugin for forward compatibility, or move to the superior will_paginate plugin. #8157 *Josh Peek*
1472
1473 * Action caching is limited to GET requests returning 200 OK status. #3335 *tom@craz8.com, halfbyte, Dan Kubb, Josh Peek*
1474
1475 * Improve Text Helper test coverage. #7274 *Rob Sanheim, Josh Peek*
1476
1477 * Improve helper test coverage. #7208, #7212, #7215, #7233, #7234, #7235, #7236, #7237, #7238, #7241, #7243, #7244 *Rich Collins, Josh Peek*
1478
1479 * Improve UrlRewriter tests. #7207 *Rich Collins*
1480
1481 * 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*
1482
1483 * Assume html format when rendering partials in RJS. #8076 *Rick Olson*
1484
1485 * Don't double-escape url_for in views. #8144 *Rich Collins, Josh Peek*
1486
1487 * Allow JSON-style values for the :with option of observe_field. Closes #8557 *kommen*
1488
1489 * Remove RAILS_ROOT from backtrace paths. #8540 *Tim Pope*
1490
1491 * Routing: map.resource :logo routes to LogosController so the controller may be reused for multiple nestings or namespaces. *Jeremy Kemper*
1492
1493 * render :partial recognizes Active Record associations as Arrays. #8538 *Kamal Fariz Mahyuddin*
1494
1495 * Routing: drop semicolon and comma as route separators. *Jeremy Kemper*
1496
1497 * request.remote_ip understands X-Forwarded-For addresses with nonstandard whitespace. #7386 *moses*
1498
1499 * Don't prepare response when rendering a component. #8493 *jsierles*
1500
1501 * Reduce file stat calls when checking for template changes. #7736 *alex*
1502
1503 * Added custom path cache_page/expire_page parameters in addition to the options hashes [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1504
1505 def index
1506 caches_page(response.body, "/index.html")
1507 end
1508
1509 * Action Caching speedup. #8231 *Stefan Kaes*
1510
1511 * Wordsmith resources documentation. #8484 *marclove*
1512
1513 * Fix syntax error in code example for routing documentation. #8377. *Norbert Crombach*
1514
1515 * Routing: respond with 405 Method Not Allowed status when the route path matches but the HTTP method does not. #6953 *Josh Peek, defeated, Dan Kubb, Coda Hale*
1516
1517 * Add support for assert_select_rjs with :show and :hide. #7780 *dchelimsky*
1518
1519 * Make assert_select's failure messages clearer about what failed. #7779 *dchelimsky*
1520
1521 * Introduce a default respond_to block for custom types. #8174 *Josh Peek*
1522
1523 * auto_complete_field takes a :method option so you can GET or POST. #8120 *zapnap*
1524
1525 * Added option to suppress :size when using :maxlength for FormTagHelper#text_field #3112 *Tim Pope*
1526
1527 * catch possible WSOD when trying to render a missing partial. Closes #8454 *Jonathan del Strother*
1528
1529 * Rewind request body after reading it, if possible. #8438 *s450r1*
1530
1531 * Resource namespaces are inherited by their has_many subresources. #8280 *marclove, Geoff Garside*
1532
1533 * Fix filtered parameter logging with nil parameter values. #8422 *choonkeat*
1534
1535 * 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*
1536
1537 * Document caches_action. #5419 *Jarkko Laine*
1538
1539 * Update to Prototype 1.5.1. *Sam Stephenson*
1540
1541 * Allow routes to be decalred under namespaces [Tobias Lütke]:
1542
1543 map.namespace :admin do |admin|
1544 admin.root :controller => "products"
1545 admin.feed 'feed.xml', :controller => 'products', :action => 'feed', :format => 'xml'
1546 end
1547
1548 * Update to script.aculo.us 1.7.1_beta3. *Thomas Fuchs*
1549
1550 * observe_form always sends the serialized form. #5271 *Manfred Stienstra, normelton@gmail.com*
1551
1552 * Parse url-encoded and multipart requests ourselves instead of delegating to CGI. *Jeremy Kemper*
1553
1554 * select :include_blank option can be set to a string instead of true, which just uses an empty string. #7664 *Wizard*
1555
1556 * Added url_for usage on render :location, which allows for record identification [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1557
1558 render :xml => person, :status => :created, :location => person
1559
1560 ...expands the location to person_url(person).
1561
1562 * 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*
1563
1564 * Add some performance enhancements to ActionView.
1565
1566 * Cache base_paths in @@cached_base_paths
1567 * Cache template extensions in @@cached_template_extension
1568 * Remove unnecessary rescues
1569
1570 * Assume that rendered partials go by the HTML format by default
1571
1572 def my_partial
1573 render :update do |page|
1574 # in this order
1575 # _foo.html.erb
1576 # _foo.erb
1577 # _foo.rhtml
1578 page.replace :foo, :partial => 'foo'
1579 end
1580 end
1581
1582 * Added record identifications to FormHelper#form_for and PrototypeHelper#remote_form_for [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
1583
1584 <% form_for(@post) do |f| %>
1585 ...
1586 <% end %>
1587
1588 This will expand to be the same as:
1589
1590 <% form_for :post, @post, :url => post_path(@post), :html => { :method => :put, :class => "edit_post", :id => "edit_post_45" } do |f| %>
1591 ...
1592 <% end %>
1593
1594 And for new records:
1595
1596 <% form_for(Post.new) do |f| %>
1597 ...
1598 <% end %>
1599
1600 This will expand to be the same as:
1601
1602 <% form_for :post, @post, :url => posts_path, :html => { :class => "new_post", :id => "new_post" } do |f| %>
1603 ...
1604 <% end %>
1605
1606 * Rationalize route path escaping according to RFC 2396 section 3.3. #7544, #8307. *Jeremy Kemper, Chris Roos, begemot, jugend*
1607
1608 * Added record identification with polymorphic routes for ActionController::Base#url_for and ActionView::Base#url_for [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
1609
1610 redirect_to(post) # => redirect_to(posts_url(post)) => Location: http://example.com/posts/1
1611 link_to(post.title, post) # => link_to(post.title, posts_url(post)) => <a href="/posts/1">Hello world</a>
1612
1613 Any method that calls url_for on its parameters will automatically benefit from this.
1614
1615 * Removed deprecated parameters_for_method_reference concept (legacy from before named routes) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1616
1617 * Add ActionController::Routing::Helpers, a module to contain common URL helpers such as polymorphic_url. *Nicholas Seckar*
1618
1619 * Included the HttpAuthentication plugin as part of core (ActionController::HttpAuthentication::Basic) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1620
1621 * Modernize documentation for form helpers. *Jeremy McAnally*
1622
1623 * Add brief introduction to REST to the resources documentation. *fearoffish*
1624
1625 * Fix various documentation typos throughout ActionPack. *Henrik N*
1626
1627 * Enhance documentation and add examples for url_for. *Jeremy McAnally*
1628
1629 * Fix documentation typo in routes. *Norbert Crombach, pam*
1630
1631 * Sweep flash when filter chain is halted. *Caio Chassot <lists@v2studio.com>*
1632
1633 * 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*
1634
1635 * Replace the current block/continuation filter chain handling by an implementation based on a simple loop. #8226 *Stefan Kaes*
1636
1637 * Update UrlWriter to accept :anchor parameter. Closes #6771. *Chris McGrath*
1638
1639 * Added RecordTagHelper for using RecordIdentifier conventions on divs and other container elements [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1640
1641 <% div_for(post) do %> <div id="post_45" class="post">
1642 <%= post.body %> What a wonderful world!
1643 <% end %> </div>
1644
1645 * Added page[record] accessor to JavaScriptGenerator that relies on RecordIdentifier to find the right dom id [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1646
1647 format.js do
1648 # Calls: new Effect.fade('post_45');
1649 render(:update) { |page| page[post].visual_effect(:fade) }
1650 end
1651
1652 * Added RecordIdentifier to enforce view conventions on records for dom ids, classes, and partial paths *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1653
1654 * Added map.namespace to deal with the common situation of admin sections and the like *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1655
1656 Before:
1657
1658 map.resources :products, :path_prefix => "admin", :controller => "admin/products", :collection => { :inventory => :get }, :member => { :duplicate => :post }
1659 map.resources :tags, :name_prefix => 'admin_product_', :path_prefix => "admin/products/:product_id", :controller => "admin/product_tags"
1660 map.resources :images, :name_prefix => 'admin_product_', :path_prefix => "admin/products/:product_id", :controller => "admin/product_images"
1661 map.resources :variants, :name_prefix => 'admin_product_', :path_prefix => "admin/products/:product_id", :controller => "admin/product_variants"
1662
1663 After:
1664
1665 map.namespace(:admin) do |admin|
1666 admin.resources :products,
1667 :collection => { :inventory => :get },
1668 :member => { :duplicate => :post },
1669 :has_many => [ :tags, :images, :variants ]
1670 end
1671
1672 * Added :name_prefix as standard for nested resources [David Heinemeier Hansson]. WARNING: May be backwards incompatible with your app
1673
1674 Before:
1675
1676 map.resources :emails do |emails|
1677 emails.resources :comments, :name_prefix => "email_"
1678 emails.resources :attachments, :name_prefix => "email_"
1679 end
1680
1681 After:
1682
1683 map.resources :emails do |emails|
1684 emails.resources :comments
1685 emails.resources :attachments
1686 end
1687
1688 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.
1689
1690 * Added :has_many and :has_one for declaring plural and singular resources beneath the current *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1691
1692 Before:
1693
1694 map.resources :notes do |notes|
1695 notes.resources :comments
1696 notes.resources :attachments
1697 notes.resource :author
1698 end
1699
1700 After:
1701
1702 map.resources :notes, :has_many => [ :comments, :attachments ], :has_one => :author
1703
1704 * Added that render :xml will try to call to_xml if it can [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Makes these work:
1705
1706 render :xml => post
1707 render :xml => comments
1708
1709 * 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*
1710
1711 render :xml => post.to_xml, :status => :created, :location => post_url(post)
1712
1713 * Ensure that render_text only adds string content to the body of the response *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1714
1715 * Return the string representation from an Xml Builder when rendering a partial. Closes #5044 *Tim Pope*
1716
1717 * Fixed that parameters from XML should also be presented in a hash with indifferent access *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1718
1719 * 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*
1720
1721 * 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*
1722
1723 * Allow layouts with extension of .html.erb. Closes #8032 *Josh Knowles*
1724
1725 * Change default respond_to templates for xml and rjs formats. *Rick Olson*
1726
1727 * Default xml template goes from #{action_name}.rxml => #{action_name}.xml.builder.
1728 * Default rjs template goes from #{action_name}.rjs => #{action_name}.js.rjs.
1729
1730 You can still specify your old templates:
1731
1732 respond_to do |format|
1733 format.xml do
1734 render :action => "#{action_name}.rxml"
1735 end
1736 end
1737
1738 * 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*
1739
1740 * Fix WSOD when template compilation fails *Rick Olson*
1741
1742 * 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*
1743
1744 * Highlight helper highlights one or many terms in a single pass. *Jeremy Kemper*
1745
1746 * 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*
1747
1748 * Added that FormTagHelper#submit_tag will return to its original state if the submit fails and you're using :disable_with *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1749
1750 * Cleaned up, corrected, and mildly expanded ActionPack documentation. Closes #7190 *Jeremy McAnally*
1751
1752 * Small collection of ActionController documentation cleanups. Closes #7319 *Jeremy McAnally*
1753
1754 * Make sure the route expiry hash is constructed by comparing the to_param-ized values of each hash. *Jamis Buck*
1755
1756 * Allow configuration of the default action cache path for #caches_action calls. *Rick Olson*
1757
1758 class ListsController < ApplicationController
1759 caches_action :index, :cache_path => Proc.new { |controller|
1760 controller.params[:user_id] ?
1761 controller.send(:user_lists_url, c.params[:user_id]) :
1762 controller.send(:lists_url) }
1763 end
1764
1765 * Performance: patch cgi/session/pstore to require digest/md5 once rather than per #initialize. #7583 *Stefan Kaes*
1766
1767 * Cookie session store: ensure that new sessions doesn't reuse data from a deleted session in the same request. *Jeremy Kemper*
1768
1769 * Deprecation: verification with :redirect_to => :named_route shouldn't be deprecated. #7525 *Justin French*
1770
1771 * Cookie session store: raise ArgumentError when :session_key is blank. *Jeremy Kemper*
1772
1773 * 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*
1774
1775 * Consistent public/protected/private visibility for chained methods. #7813 *Dan Manges*
1776
1777 * Prefer MIME constants to strings. #7707 *Dan Kubb*
1778
1779 * 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*
1780
1781 \# Add a #dbman attr_reader for CGI::Session and make CGI::Session::CookieStore#generate_digest public so it's easy to generate digests
1782 using the cookie store's secret. *Rick Olson*
1783
1784 * Added Request#url that returns the complete URL used for the request *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1785
1786 * Extract dynamic scaffolding into a plugin. #7700 *Josh Peek*
1787
1788 * Added user/password options for url_for to add http authentication in a URL *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1789
1790 * Fixed that FormTagHelper#text_area_tag should disregard :size option if it's not a string *Brendon Davidson*
1791
1792 * 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*
1793
1794 * session_enabled? works with session :off. #6680 *Jonathan del Strother*
1795
1796 * Added :port and :host handling to UrlRewriter (which unified url_for usage, regardless of whether it's called in view or controller) #7616 *alancfrancis*
1797
1798 * Allow send_file/send_data to use a registered mime type as the :type parameter #7620 *jonathan*
1799
1800 * Allow routing requirements on map.resource(s) #7633 [quixoten]. Example:
1801
1802 map.resources :network_interfaces, :requirements => { :id => /^\d+\.\d+\.\d+\.\d+$/ }
1803
1804 * Cookie session store: empty and unchanged sessions don't write a cookie. *Jeremy Kemper*
1805
1806 * Added helper(:all) as a way to include all helpers from app/helpers/**/*.rb in ApplicationController *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1807
1808 * Integration tests: introduce methods for other HTTP methods. #6353 *caboose*
1809
1810 * Routing: better support for escaped values in route segments. #7544 [Chris
1811 Roos]
1812
1813 * 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*
1814
1815 Example config/environment.rb:
1816 # Use an application-wide secret key and the default SHA1 message digest.
1817 config.action_controller.session = { :secret => "can't touch this" }
1818
1819 # Store a secret key per user and employ a stronger message digest.
1820 config.action_controller.session = {
1821 :digest => 'SHA512',
1822 :secret => Proc.new { User.current.secret_key }
1823 }
1824
1825 * 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.
1826
1827 * Added caching option to AssetTagHelper#stylesheet_link_tag and AssetTagHelper#javascript_include_tag [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
1828
1829 stylesheet_link_tag :all, :cache => true # when ActionController::Base.perform_caching is false =>
1830 <link href="/stylesheets/style1.css" media="screen" rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" />
1831 <link href="/stylesheets/styleB.css" media="screen" rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" />
1832 <link href="/stylesheets/styleX2.css" media="screen" rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" />
1833
1834 stylesheet_link_tag :all, :cache => true # when ActionController::Base.perform_caching is true =>
1835 <link href="/stylesheets/all.css" media="screen" rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" />
1836
1837 ...when caching is on, all.css is the concatenation of style1.css, styleB.css, and styleX2.css.
1838 Same deal for JavaScripts.
1839
1840 * 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*
1841
1842 * Added default mime type for CSS (Mime::CSS) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1843
1844 * 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*
1845
1846 * Added X-Runtime to all responses with the request run time *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1847
1848 * Add Mime::Type convenience methods to check the current mime type. *Rick Olson*
1849
1850 request.format.html? # => true if Mime::HTML
1851 request.format.jpg? # => true if Mime::JPG
1852
1853 \# ActionController sample usage:
1854 \# the session will be disabled for non html/ajax requests
1855 session :off, :if => Proc.new { |req| !(req.format.html? || req.format.js?) }
1856
1857 * Performance: patch cgi/session to require digest/md5 once rather than per #create_new_id. *Stefan Kaes*
1858
1859 * Add a :url_based_filename => true option to ActionController::Streaming::send_file, which allows URL-based filenames. *Thomas Fuchs*
1860
1861 * Fix that FormTagHelper#submit_tag using :disable_with should trigger the onsubmit handler of its form if available *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1862
1863 * Fix #render_file so that TemplateError is called with the correct params and you don't get the WSOD. *Rick Olson*
1864
1865 * 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
1866 superclass' view_paths. *Rick Olson*
1867
1868 * Allow Controllers to have multiple view_paths instead of a single template_root. Closes #2754 *John Long*
1869
1870 * Add much-needed html-scanner tests. Fixed CDATA parsing bug. *Rick Olson*
1871
1872 * improve error message for Routing for named routes. Closes #7346 *Rob Sanheim*
1873
1874 * Added enhanced docs to routing assertions. Closes #7359 *Rob Sanheim*
1875
1876 * fix form_for example in ActionController::Resources documentation. Closes #7362 *gnarg*
1877
1878 * 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*
1879
1880 * Added FormBuilder#submit as a delegate for FormTagHelper#submit_tag *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1881
1882 * 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*
1883
1884 * Change the query parser to map empty GET params to "" rather than nil. Closes #5694. *Nicholas Seckar*
1885
1886 * date_select and datetime_select take a :default option. #7052 *Nik Wakelin*
1887 date_select "post", "written_on", :default => 3.days.from_now
1888 date_select "credit_card", "bill_due", :default => { :day => 20 }
1889
1890 * select :multiple => true suffixes the attribute name with [] unless already suffixed. #6977 *nik.kakelin, ben, julik*
1891
1892 * Improve routes documentation. #7095 *zackchandler*
1893
1894 * 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*
1895
1896 * Resource member routes require :id, eliminating the ambiguous overlap with collection routes. #7229 *dkubb*
1897
1898 * Remove deprecated assertions. *Jeremy Kemper*
1899
1900 * Change session restoration to allow namespaced models to be autoloaded. Closes #6348. *Nicholas Seckar*
1901
1902 * Fix doubly appearing parameters due to string and symbol mixups. Closes #2551. *Anthony Eden*
1903
1904 * Fix overly greedy rescues when loading helpers. Fixes #6268. *Nicholas Seckar*
1905
1906 * Fixed NumberHelper#number_with_delimiter to use "." always for splitting the original number, not the delimiter parameter #7389 *ceefour*
1907
1908 * Autolinking recognizes trailing and embedded . , : ; #7354 *Jarkko Laine*
1909
1910 * Make TextHelper::auto_link recognize URLs with colons in path correctly, fixes #7268. *imajes*
1911

1913
1914 * Modernize cookie testing code, and increase coverage (Heckle++) #7101 *Kevin Clark*
1915
1916 * Improve Test Coverage for ActionController::Routing::Route#matches_controller_and_action? (Heckle++) #7115 *Kevin Clark*
1917
1918 * Heckling ActionController::Resources::Resource revealed that set_prefixes didn't break when :name_prefix was munged. #7081 *Kevin Clark*

1920 * Fix #distance_of_time_in_words to report accurately against the Duration class. #7114 *eventualbuddha*
1921
1922 * Refactor #form_tag to allow easy extending. *Rick Olson*
1923
1924 * Update to Prototype 1.5.0. *Sam Stephenson*
1925
1926 * RecordInvalid, RecordNotSaved => 422 Unprocessable Entity, StaleObjectError => 409 Conflict. #7097 *dkubb*
1927
1928 * Allow fields_for to be nested inside form_for, so that the name and id get properly constructed *Jamis Buck*
1929
1930 * Allow inGroupsOf and eachSlice to be called through rjs. #7046 *Cody Fauser*
1931
1932 * Allow exempt_from_layout :rhtml. #6742, #7026 *Dan Manges, Squeegy*
1933
1934 * Recognize the .txt extension as Mime::TEXT *Rick Olson*
1935
1936 * Fix parsing of array[] CGI parameters so extra empty values aren't included. #6252 *Nicholas Seckar, aiwilliams, brentrowland*
1937
1938 * link_to_unless_current works with full URLs as well as paths. #6891 *Jarkko Laine, Manfred Stienstra, idrifter*
1939
1940 * Lookup the mime type for #auto_discovery_link_tag in the Mime::Type class. Closes #6941 *Josh Peek*

1944 * Fix no method error with error_messages_on. Closes #6935 *nik.wakelin Koz*
1945
1946 * Slight doc tweak to the ActionView::Helpers::PrototypeHelper#replace docs. Closes #6922 *Steven Bristol*

1955
1956 * Make sure html_document is reset between integration test requests. *ctm*
1957
1958 * 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*
1959
1960 * Routing uses URI escaping for path components and CGI escaping for query parameters. *darix, Jeremy Kemper*
1961
1962 * 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*
1963
1964 * Singleton resources: POST /singleton => create, GET /singleton/new => new. *Jeremy Kemper*
1965
1966 * Use 400 Bad Request status for unrescued ActiveRecord::RecordInvalid exceptions. *Jeremy Kemper*
1967
1968 * Silence log_error deprecation warnings from inspecting deprecated instance variables. *Nate Wiger*

1981
1982 * Unrescued ActiveRecord::RecordNotFound responds with 404 instead of 500. *Jeremy Kemper*
1983
1984 * Improved auto_link to match more valid urls correctly *Tobias Lütke*
1985
1986 * Add singleton resources. *Rick Olson*
1987
1988 map.resource :account
1989
1990 GET /account
1991 GET /account;edit
1992 UPDATE /account
1993 DELETE /account
1994
1995 * 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*
1996 # application/json response with body 'Element.show({:name: "David"})'
1997 respond_to do |format|
1998 format.json { render :json => { :name => "David" }.to_json, :callback => 'Element.show' }
1999 end
2000
2001 * Makes :discard_year work without breaking multi-attribute parsing in AR. #1260, #3800 *sean@ardismg.com, jmartin@desertflood.com, stephen@touset.org, Bob Silva*
2002
2003 * Adds html id attribute to date helper elements. #1050, #1382 *mortonda@dgrmm.net, David North, Bob Silva*
2004
2005 * Add :index and @auto_index capability to model driven date/time selects. #847, #2655 *moriq, Doug Fales, Bob Silva*
2006
2007 * Add :order to datetime_select, select_datetime, and select_date. #1427 *Timothee Peignier, Patrick Lenz, Bob Silva*
2008
2009 * Added time_select to work with time values in models. Update scaffolding. #2489, #2833 *Justin Palmer, Andre Caum, Bob Silva*
2010
2011 * Added :include_seconds to select_datetime, datetime_select and time_select. #2998 *csn, Bob Silva*
2012
2013 * All date/datetime selects can now accept an array of month names with :use_month_names. Allows for localization. #363 *tomasj, Bob Silva*
2014
2015 * Adds :time_separator to select_time and :date_separator to select_datetime. Preserves BC. #3811 *Bob Silva*
2016
2017 * Added map.root as an alias for map.connect '' *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2018
2019 * 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:
2020
2021 GET /posts/5.xml | request.format => Mime::XML
2022 GET /posts/5.xhtml | request.format => Mime::HTML
2023 GET /posts/5 | request.format => request.accepts.first (usually Mime::HTML for browsers)
2024
2025 * Added the option for extension aliases to mime type registration [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example (already in the default routes):
2026
2027 Mime::Type.register "text/html", :html, %w( application/xhtml+xml ), %w( xhtml )
2028
2029 ...will respond on both .html and .xhtml.
2030
2031 * @response.redirect_url works with 201 Created responses: just return headers['Location'] rather than checking the response status. *Jeremy Kemper*
2032
2033 * Added CSV to Mime::SET so that respond_to csv will work *Cody Fauser*
2034
2035 * Fixed that HEAD should return the proper Content-Length header (that is, actually use @body.size, not just 0) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2036
2037 * 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*
2038
2039 * Update Routing to complain when :controller is not specified by a route. Closes #6669. *Nicholas Seckar*
2040
2041 * Ensure render_to_string cleans up after itself when an exception is raised. #6658 *Rob Sanheim*
2042
2043 * Extract template_changed_since? from compile_template? so plugins may override its behavior for non-file-based templates. #6651 *Jeff Barczewski*
2044
2045 * Update to Prototype and script.aculo.us [5579]. *Thomas Fuchs*
2046
2047 * simple_format helper doesn't choke on nil. #6644 *jerry426*
2048
2049 * Update to Prototype 1.5.0_rc2 [5550] which makes it work in Opera again *Thomas Fuchs*
2050
2051 * 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*
2052
2053 * ActionView::Base.erb_variable accessor names the buffer variable used to render templates. Defaults to _erbout; use _buf for erubis. *Rick Olson*
2054
2055 * assert_select_rjs :remove. *Dylan Egan*
2056
2057 * Always clear model associations from session. #4795 *sd@notso.net, andylien@gmail.com*
2058
2059 * Update to Prototype 1.5.0_rc2. *Sam Stephenson*
2060
2061 * Remove JavaScriptLiteral in favor of ActiveSupport::JSON::Variable. *Sam Stephenson*
2062
2063 * Sync ActionController::StatusCodes::STATUS_CODES with http://www.iana.org/assignments/http-status-codes. #6586 *dkubb*
2064
2065 * 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*
2066
2067 * assert_response supports symbolic status codes. #6569 *Kevin Clark*
2068 assert_response :ok
2069 assert_response :not_found
2070 assert_response :forbidden
2071
2072 * Cache parsed query parameters. #6559 *Stefan Kaes*
2073
2074 * Deprecate JavaScriptHelper#update_element_function, which is superseeded by RJS *Thomas Fuchs*
2075
2076 * pluralize helper interprets nil as zero. #6474 *Tim Pope*
2077
2078 * Fix invalid test fixture exposed by stricter Ruby 1.8.5 multipart parsing. #6524 *Bob Silva*
2079
2080 * Set ActionView::Base.default_form_builder once rather than passing the :builder option to every form or overriding the form helper methods. *Jeremy Kemper*
2081
2082 * Deprecate expire_matched_fragments. Use expire_fragment instead. #6535 *Bob Silva*
2083
2084 * Update to latest Prototype, which doesn't serialize disabled form elements, adds clone() to arrays, empty/non-string Element.update() and adds a fixes excessive error reporting in WebKit beta versions *Thomas Fuchs*
2085
2086 * Deprecate start_form_tag and end_form_tag. Use form_tag / '</form>' from now on. *Rick Olson*
2087
2088 * Added block-usage to PrototypeHelper#form_remote_tag, document block-usage of FormTagHelper#form_tag *Rick Olson*
2089
2090 * Add a 0 margin/padding div around the hidden _method input tag that form_tag outputs. *Rick Olson*
2091
2092 * Added block-usage to TagHelper#content_tag [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
2093
2094 <% content_tag :div, :class => "strong" %>
2095 Hello world!
2096 <% end %>
2097
2098 Will output:
2099 <div class="strong">Hello world!</div>
2100
2101 * Deprecated UrlHelper#link_to_image and UrlHelper#link_to :post => true #6409 *Bob Silva*
2102
2103 * 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*
2104
2105 * Fixed that setting RAILS_ASSET_ID to "" should not add a trailing slash after assets #6454 *Bob Silva/chrismear*
2106
2107 * Force *_url named routes to show the host in ActionView *Rick Olson*
2108
2109 <%= url_for ... %> # no host
2110 <%= foo_path %> # no host
2111 <%= foo_url %> # host!
2112
2113 * Add support for converting blocks into function arguments to JavaScriptGenerator#call and JavaScriptProxy#call. *Sam Stephenson*
2114
2115 * Add JavaScriptGenerator#literal for wrapping a string in an object whose #to_json is the string itself. *Sam Stephenson*
2116
2117 * Add <%= escape_once html %> to escape html while leaving any currently escaped entities alone. Fix button_to double-escaping issue. *Rick Olson*
2118
2119 * Fix double-escaped entities, such as &amp;amp;, &amp;#123;, etc. *Rick Olson*
2120
2121 * Fix deprecation warnings when rendering the template error template. *Nicholas Seckar*
2122
2123 * Fix routing to correctly determine when generation fails. Closes #6300. [psross].
2124
2125 * Fix broken assert_generates when extra keys are being checked. *Jamis Buck*
2126
2127 * Replace KCODE checks with String#chars for truncate. Closes #6385 *Manfred Stienstra*
2128
2129 * 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.*
2130
2131 * Use String#chars in TextHelper::excerpt. Closes #6386 *Manfred Stienstra*
2132
2133 * Install named routes into ActionView::Base instead of proxying them to the view via helper_method. Closes #5932. *Nicholas Seckar*
2134
2135 * Update to latest Prototype and script.aculo.us trunk versions *Thomas Fuchs*
2136
2137 * Fix relative URL root matching problems. *Mark Imbriaco*
2138
2139 * Fix filter skipping in controller subclasses. #5949, #6297, #6299 *Martin Emde*
2140
2141 * 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*
2142
2143 * Rename test assertion to prevent shadowing. Closes #6306. *psross*
2144
2145 * Fixed that NumberHelper#number_to_delimiter should respect precision of higher than two digits #6231 *Philip Hallstrom*
2146
2147 * Fixed that FormHelper#radio_button didn't respect an :id being passed in #6266 *evansj*
2148
2149 * Added an html_options hash parameter to javascript_tag() and update_page_tag() helpers #6311 [tzaharia]. Example:
2150
2151 update_page_tag :defer => 'true' { |page| ... }
2152
2153 Gives:
2154
2155 <script defer="true" type="text/javascript">...</script>
2156
2157 Which is needed for dealing with the IE6 DOM when it's not yet fully loaded.
2158
2159 * Fixed that rescue template path shouldn't be hardcoded, then it's easier to hook in your own #6295 *Mike Naberezny*
2160
2161 * Fixed escaping of backslashes in JavaScriptHelper#escape_javascript #6302 *sven@c3d2.de*
2162
2163 * Fixed that some 500 rescues would cause 500's themselves because the response had not yet been generated #6329 *cmselmer*
2164
2165 * respond_to :html doesn't assume .rhtml. #6281 *Hampton Catlin*
2166
2167 * Fixed some deprecation warnings in ActionPack *Rick Olson*
2168
2169 * assert_select_rjs decodes escaped unicode chars since the Javascript generators encode them. #6240 *japgolly*
2170
2171 * Deprecation: @cookies, @headers, @request, @response will be removed after 1.2. Use the corresponding method instead. *Jeremy Kemper*
2172
2173 * 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:
2174
2175 head :status => 404 # expands to "404 Not Found"
2176 head :status => :not_found # expands to "404 Not Found"
2177 head :status => :created # expands to "201 Created"
2178
2179 * Add head(options = {}) for responses that have no body. [Jamis Buck]. Examples:
2180
2181 head :status => 404 # return an empty response with a 404 status
2182 head :location => person_path(@person), :status => 201
2183
2184 * Fix bug that kept any before_filter except the first one from being able to halt the before_filter chain. *Rick Olson*
2185
2186 * strip_links is case-insensitive. #6285 *tagoh, Bob Silva*
2187
2188 * Clear the cache of possible controllers whenever Routes are reloaded. *Nicholas Seckar*
2189
2190 * Filters overhaul including meantime filter support using around filters + blocks. #5949 *Martin Emde, Roman Le Negrate, Stefan Kaes, Jeremy Kemper*

2195
2196 * Fix routing to respect user provided requirements and defaults when assigning default routing options (such as :action => 'index'). Closes #5950. *Nicholas Seckar*
2197
2198 * Rescue Errno::ECONNRESET to handle an unexpectedly closed socket connection. Improves SCGI reliability. #3368, #6226 *sdsykes, fhanshaw@vesaria.com*
2199
2200 * Added that respond_to blocks will automatically set the content type to be the same as is requested [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
2201
2202 respond_to do |format|
2203 format.html { render :text => "I'm being sent as text/html" }
2204 format.rss { render :text => "I'm being sent as application/rss+xml" }
2205 format.atom { render :text => "I'm being sent as application/xml", :content_type => Mime::XML }
2206 end
2207
2208 * Added utf-8 as the default charset for all renders. You can change this default using ActionController::Base.default_charset=(encoding) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2209
2210 * Added proper getters and setters for content type and charset [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example of what we used to do:
2211
2212 response.headers["Content-Type"] = "application/atom+xml; charset=utf-8"
2213
2214 ...now:
2215
2216 response.content_type = Mime::ATOM
2217 response.charset = "utf-8"
2218
2219 * Updated prototype.js to 1.5.0_rc1 with latest fixes. *Rick Olson*

2226 Example: ActionController::Base.exempt_from_layout 'rpdf'
2227
2228 * Add chained replace/update support for assert_select_rjs *Rick Olson*
2229
2230 Given RJS like...
2231
2232 page['test1'].replace "<div id=\"1\">foo</div>"
2233 page['test2'].replace_html "<div id=\"2\">foo</div>"
2234
2235 Test it with...
2236
2237 assert_select_rjs :chained_replace
2238 assert_select_rjs :chained_replace, "test1"
2239
2240 assert_select_rjs :chained_replace_html
2241 assert_select_rjs :chained_replace_html, "test2"
2242

2244
2245 * Skip params with empty names, such as the &=Save query string from <input type="submit"/>. #2569 *Manfred Stienstra, raphinou@yahoo.com*
2246
2247 * Fix assert_tag so that :content => "foo" does not match substrings, but only exact strings. Use :content => /foo/ to match substrings. #2799 *Eric Hodel*

2249 * Add descriptive messages to the exceptions thrown by cgi_methods. #6091, #6103 *Nicholas Seckar, Bob Silva*
2250
2251 * Update JavaScriptGenerator#show/hide/toggle/remove to new Prototype syntax for multiple ids, #6068 *petermichaux@gmail.com*
2252
2253 * Update UrlWriter to support :only_path. *Nicholas Seckar, Dave Thomas*
2254
2255 * 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:
2256
2257 link_to("Hider", nil, :class => "hider_link") { |p| p[:something].hide }
2258
2259 ...can be written like this:
2260
2261 link_to("Hider", :class => "hider_link") { |p| p[:something].hide }
2262
2263 * Update to script.aculo.us 1.6.3 *Thomas Fuchs*
2264
2265 * Update to Prototype 1.5.0_rc1 *sam*
2266
2267 * Added access to nested attributes in RJS #4548 [richcollins@gmail.com]. Examples:
2268
2269 page['foo']['style'] # => $('foo').style;
2270 page['foo']['style']['color'] # => $('blank_slate').style.color;
2271 page['foo']['style']['color'] = 'red' # => $('blank_slate').style.color = 'red';
2272 page['foo']['style'].color = 'red' # => $('blank_slate').style.color = 'red';

2283
2284 * Improved resolution of DateHelper#distance_of_time_in_words for better precision #5994 *Bob Silva*
2285
2286 * Changed that uncaught exceptions raised any where in the application will cause RAILS_ROOT/public/500.html to be read and shown instead of just the static "Application error (Rails)" *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2287
2288 * Integration tests: thoroughly test ActionController::Integration::Session. #6022 *Kevin Clark*
2289 (tests skipped unless you `gem install mocha`)
2290
2291 * Added deprecation language for pagination which will become a plugin by Rails 2.0 *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2292
2293 * Added deprecation language for in_place_editor and auto_complete_field that both pieces will become plugins by Rails 2.0 *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2294
2295 * Deprecated all of ActionController::Dependencies. All dependency loading is now handled from Active Support *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2296
2297 * Added assert_select* for CSS selector-based testing (deprecates assert_tag) #5936 *assaf.arkin@gmail.com*
2298
2299 * radio_button_tag generates unique id attributes. #3353 *Bob Silva, somekool@gmail.com*

2304
2305 * button_to accepts :method so you can PUT and DELETE with it. #6005 *Dan Webb*
2306
2307 * Update sanitize text helper to strip plaintext tags, and <img src="javascript:bang">. *Rick Olson*
2308
2309 * Update routing documentation. Closes #6017 *Nathan Witmer*

2312
2313 * Deprecation: update docs. #5998 *Jakob Skjerning, Kevin Clark*
2314
2315 * Make auto_link parse a greater subset of valid url formats. *Jamis Buck*
2316
2317 * 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*
2318
2319 * Tighten rescue clauses. #5985 *james@grayproductions.net*
2320
2321 * Fix send_data documentation typo. #5982 *brad@madriska.com*
2322
2323 * Switch to using FormEncodedPairParser for parsing request parameters. *Nicholas Seckar, David Heinemeier Hansson*
2324
2325 * 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*
2326
2327 * Deprecation: test deprecated instance vars in partials. *Jeremy Kemper*
2328
2329 * Add UrlWriter to allow writing urls from Mailers and scripts. *Nicholas Seckar*
2330
2331 * Clean up and run the Active Record integration tests by default. #5854 *Kevin Clark, Jeremy Kemper*

2334
2335 * Updated to script.aculo.us 1.6.2 *Thomas Fuchs*
2336

2338
2339 * Add controller_paths variable to Routing. *Nicholas Seckar*
2340
2341 * Fix assert_redirected_to issue with named routes for module controllers. *Rick Olson*
2342

2344
2345 * Invoke method_missing directly on hidden actions. Closes #3030. *Nicholas Seckar*
2346
2347 * Require Tempfile explicitly for TestUploadedFile due to changes in class auto loading. *Rick Olson*
2348
2349 * Add RoutingError exception when RouteSet fails to generate a path from a Named Route. *Rick Olson*
2350
2351 * Replace Reloadable with Reloadable::Deprecated. *Nicholas Seckar*
2352

2355 * Add support for the param_name parameter to the auto_complete_field helper. #5026 *david.a.williams@gmail.com*
2356
2357 * 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*
2358
2359 * Make Routing noisy when an anchor regexp is assigned to a segment. #5674 *François Beausoleil*
2360
2361 * Added months and years to the resolution of DateHelper#distance_of_time_in_words, such that "60 days ago" becomes "2 months ago" #5611 *pjhyett@gmail.com*
2362
2363 * Short documentation to mention use of Mime::Type.register. #5710 *choonkeat@gmail.com*
2364
2365 * Make controller_path available as an instance method. #5724 *jmckible@gmail.com*
2366
2367 * Update query parser to support adjacent hashes. *Nicholas Seckar*
2368
2369 * 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.*
2370
2371 * Restrict Request Method hacking with ?_method to POST requests. *Rick Olson*
2372
2373 * Fix bug when passing multiple options to SimplyRestful, like :new => { :preview => :get, :draft => :get }. *Rick Olson, Josh Susser, Lars Pind*
2374
2375 * Dup the options passed to map.resources so that multiple resources get the same options. *Rick Olson*
2376
2377 * Fixed the new_#{resource}_url route and added named route tests for Simply Restful. *Rick Olson*
2378
2379 * Added map.resources from the Simply Restful plugin [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples (the API has changed to use plurals!):
2380
2381 map.resources :messages
2382 map.resources :messages, :comments
2383 map.resources :messages, :new => { :preview => :post }
2384
2385 * Fixed that integration simulation of XHRs should set Accept header as well *Edward Frederick*
2386
2387 * TestRequest#reset_session should restore a TestSession, not a hash *Michael Koziarski*
2388
2389 * Don't search a load-path of '.' for controller files *Jamis Buck*
2390
2391 * Update integration.rb to require test_process explicitly instead of via Dependencies. *Nicholas Seckar*
2392
2393 * Fixed that you can still access the flash after the flash has been reset in reset_session. Closes #5584 *lmarlow*
2394
2395 * Allow form_for and fields_for to work with indexed form inputs. *Jeremy Kemper, Matt Lyon*
2396
2397 <% form_for 'post[]', @post do |f| -%>
2398 <% end -%>
2399
2400 * Remove leak in development mode by replacing define_method with module_eval. *Nicholas Seckar*

2413
2414 * Added exception handling of missing layouts #5373 *chris@ozmm.org*
2415
2416 * Fixed that real files and symlinks should be treated the same when compiling templates #5438 *zachary@panandscan.com*
2417
2418 * Fixed that the flash should be reset when reset_session is called #5584 *Shugo Maeda*
2419
2420 * Added special case for "1 Byte" in NumberHelper#number_to_human_size #5593 *murpyh@rubychan.de*
2421
2422 * Fixed proper form-encoded parameter parsing for requests with "Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded; charset=utf-8" (note the presence of a charset directive) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2423
2424 * Add route_name_path method to generate only the path for a named routes. For example, map.person will add person_path. *Nicholas Seckar*
2425
2426 * Avoid naming collision among compiled view methods. *Jeremy Kemper*
2427
2428 * Fix CGI extensions when they expect string but get nil in Windows. Closes #5276 *Mislav Marohnić*
2429
2430 * Determine the correct template_root for deeply nested components. #2841 *s.brink@web.de*
2431

2434 * Fix strip_links so that it doesn't hang on multiline <acronym> tags *Jamis Buck*
2435
2436 * Remove problematic control chars in rescue template. #5316 *Stefan Kaes*

2438 * Make sure passed routing options are not mutated by routing code. #5314 *Blair Zajac*
2439
2440 * Make sure changing the controller from foo/bar to bing/bang does not change relative to foo. *Jamis Buck*
2441
2442 * Escape the path before routing recognition. #3671
2443
2444 * Make sure :id and friends are unescaped properly. #5275 *me@julik.nl*
2445
2446 * Fix documentation for with_routing to reflect new reality. #5281 *rramdas@gmail.com*
2447
2448 * 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*
2449
2450 * Added Mime::TEXT (text/plain) and Mime::ICS (text/calendar) as new default types *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2451
2452 * Added Mime::Type.register(string, symbol, synonyms = []) for adding new custom mime types [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example: Mime::Type.register("image/gif", :gif)
2453
2454 * Added support for Mime objects in render :content_type option [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example: render :text => some_atom, :content_type => Mime::ATOM
2455
2456 * Add :status option to send_data and send_file. Defaults to '200 OK'. #5243 *Manfred Stienstra <m.stienstra@fngtps.com>*
2457
2458 * 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*
2459
2460 map.connect '/foo/:id', :controller => '...', :action => '...'
2461 map.connect '/foo/:id.:format', :controller => '...', :action => '...'
2462 map.connect '/foo/:id', ..., :conditions => { :method => :get }
2463
2464 * Cope with missing content type and length headers. Parse parameters from multipart and urlencoded request bodies only. *Jeremy Kemper*
2465
2466 * Accept multipart PUT parameters. #5235 *guy.naor@famundo.com*
2467
2468 * 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:
2469
2470 class WeblogController < ActionController::Base
2471 def index
2472 @posts = Post.find :all
2473
2474 respond_to do |format|
2475 format.html
2476 format.xml { render :xml => @posts.to_xml }
2477 format.rss { render :action => "feed.rxml" }
2478 end
2479 end
2480 end
2481
2482 \# returns HTML when requested by a browser, since the browser
2483 \# has the HTML mimetype at the top of its priority list
2484 Accept: text/html
2485 GET /weblog
2486
2487 \# returns the XML
2488 Accept: application/xml
2489 GET /weblog
2490
2491 \# returns the HTML
2492 Accept: application/xml
2493 GET /weblog.html
2494
2495 \# returns the XML
2496 Accept: text/html
2497 GET /weblog.xml
2498
2499 All this relies on the fact that you have a route that includes .:format.
2500
2501 * 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*
2502
2503 * 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*
2504
2505 * follow_redirect doesn't complain about being redirected to the same controller. #5153 *dymo@mk.ukrtelecom.ua*
2506
2507 * Add layout attribute to response object with the name of the layout that was rendered, or nil if none rendered. *Kevin Clark*
2508
2509 * Fix NoMethodError when parsing params like &&. *Adam Greenfield*
2510
2511 * Fix flip flopped logic in docs for url_for's :only_path option. Closes #4998. *esad@esse.at*
2512
2513 * form.text_area handles the :size option just like the original text_area (:size => '60x10' becomes cols="60" rows="10"). *Jeremy Kemper*
2514
2515 * Excise ingrown code from FormOptionsHelper#options_for_select. #5008 *anonymous*
2516
2517 * Small fix in routing to allow dynamic routes (broken after [4242]) *Rick Olson*
2518
2519 map.connect '*path', :controller => 'files', :action => 'show'
2520
2521 * Replace alias method chaining with Module#alias_method_chain. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
2522
2523 * Replace Ruby's deprecated append_features in favor of included. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
2524
2525 * Use #flush between switching from #write to #syswrite. Closes #4907. *Blair Zajac <blair@orcaware.com>*
2526
2527 * Documentation fix: integration test scripts don't require integration_test. Closes #4914. *Frederick Ros <sl33p3r@free.fr>*
2528
2529 * ActionController::Base Summary documentation rewrite. Closes #4900. *Kevin Clark*
2530
2531 * Fix text_helper.rb documentation rendering. Closes #4725. *Frederick Ros*
2532

2536
2537 error_messages_for :account, :user, :subscription, :object_name => :account
2538
2539 * Enhance documentation for setting headers in integration tests. Skip auto HTTP prepending when its already there. Closes #4079. *Rick Olson*
2540
2541 * Documentation for AbstractRequest. Closes #4895. *Kevin Clark*
2542
2543 * Refactor various InstanceTag instance method to class methods. Closes #4800. *Stefan Kaes*
2544
2545 * Remove all remaining references to @params in the documentation. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
2546
2547 * Add documentation for redirect_to :back's RedirectBackError exception. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
2548
2549 * Update layout and content_for documentation to use yield rather than magic @content_for instance variables. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
2550
2551 * Fix assert_redirected_to tests according to real-world usage. Also, don't fail if you add an extra :controller option: *Rick Olson*
2552
2553 redirect_to :action => 'new'
2554 assert_redirected_to :controller => 'monkeys', :action => 'new'
2555
2556 * Cache CgiRequest#request_parameters so that multiple calls don't re-parse multipart data. *Rick Olson*
2557
2558 * Diff compared routing options. Allow #assert_recognizes to take a second arg as a hash to specify optional request method *Rick Olson*
2559
2560 assert_recognizes({:controller => 'users', :action => 'index'}, 'users')
2561 assert_recognizes({:controller => 'users', :action => 'create'}, {:path => 'users', :method => :post})
2562
2563 * Diff compared options with #assert_redirected_to *Rick Olson*
2564
2565 * Add support in routes for semicolon delimited "subpaths", like /books/:id;:action *Jamis Buck*
2566
2567 * 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*
2568
2569 * 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*
2570
2571 * 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*
2572
2573 * 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*
2574 ex. verify :only => :speak, :method => :post,
2575 :render => { :status => 405, :text => "Must be post" },
2576 :add_headers => { "Allow" => "POST" }
2577
2578 * 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*
2579
2580

2586
2587 * Performance: patch cgi/session to require digest/md5 once rather than per #create_new_id. *Stefan Kaes*
2588
2589
2590 ## 1.13.2 (February 5th, 2007) ##
2591

2595
2596 * Added enhanced docs to routing assertions. *Rob Sanheim*

2603
2604 * Improve routes documentation. #7095 *zackchandler*
2605
2606 * Resource member routes require :id, eliminating the ambiguous overlap with collection routes. #7229 *dkubb*

2635
2636 * Fix HTML::Node to output double quotes instead of single quotes. Closes #6845 *mitreandy*
2637
2638 * Fix no method error with error_messages_on. Closes #6935 *nik.wakelin Koz*
2639

2650 * Make sure html_document is reset between integration test requests. *ctm*
2651
2652 * 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*
2653
2654 * 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*
2655
2656 * Ensure render :json => ... skips the layout. #6808 *Josh Peek*
2657
2658 * Silence log_error deprecation warnings from inspecting deprecated instance variables. *Nate Wiger*
2659

2661
2662 * Correctly report which filter halted the chain. #6699 *Martin Emde*
2663
2664 * 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*
2665 # application/json response with body 'Element.show({:name: "David"})'
2666 respond_to do |format|
2667 format.json { render :json => { :name => "David" }.to_json, :callback => 'Element.show' }
2668 end
2669
2670 * Makes :discard_year work without breaking multi-attribute parsing in AR. #1260, #3800 *sean@ardismg.com, jmartin@desertflood.com, stephen@touset.org, Bob Silva*
2671
2672 * Adds html id attribute to date helper elements. #1050, #1382 *mortonda@dgrmm.net, David North, Bob Silva*
2673
2674 * Add :index and @auto_index capability to model driven date/time selects. #847, #2655 *moriq, Doug Fales, Bob Silva*
2675
2676 * Add :order to datetime_select, select_datetime, and select_date. #1427 *Timothee Peignier, Patrick Lenz, Bob Silva*
2677
2678 * Added time_select to work with time values in models. Update scaffolding. #2489, #2833 *Justin Palmer, Andre Caum, Bob Silva*
2679
2680 * Added :include_seconds to select_datetime, datetime_select and time_select. #2998 *csn, Bob Silva*
2681
2682 * All date/datetime selects can now accept an array of month names with :use_month_names. Allows for localization. #363 *tomasj, Bob Silva*
2683
2684 * Adds :time_separator to select_time and :date_separator to select_datetime. Preserves BC. #3811 *Bob Silva*
2685
2686 * @response.redirect_url works with 201 Created responses: just return headers['Location'] rather than checking the response status. *Jeremy Kemper*
2687
2688 * Fixed that HEAD should return the proper Content-Length header (that is, actually use @body.size, not just 0) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2689
2690 * 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*
2691
2692
2693 ## 1.13.0 RC1 (r5619, November 22nd, 2006) ##
2694
2695 * Update Routing to complain when :controller is not specified by a route. Closes #6669. *Nicholas Seckar*

2697 * Ensure render_to_string cleans up after itself when an exception is raised. #6658 *rsanheim*
2698
2699 * Update to Prototype and script.aculo.us [5579]. *Sam Stephenson, Thomas Fuchs*
2700
2701 * simple_format helper doesn't choke on nil. #6644 *jerry426*
2702
2703 * 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*
2704
2705 * Deprecate standalone components. *Jeremy Kemper*
2706
2707 * Always clear model associations from session. #4795 *sd@notso.net, andylien@gmail.com*
2708
2709 * Remove JavaScriptLiteral in favor of ActiveSupport::JSON::Variable. *Sam Stephenson*
2710
2711 * Sync ActionController::StatusCodes::STATUS_CODES with http://www.iana.org/assignments/http-status-codes. #6586 *dkubb*

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