fc42998 @josevalim Update CHANGELOGs.
josevalim authored
15 * Add :gzip option to `caches_page`. The default option can be configured globally using `page_cache_compression` *Andrey Sitnik*
16
6481bc5 @josevalim Update CHANGELOGs and guides.
josevalim authored
17 * The ShowExceptions middleware now accepts a exceptions application that is responsible to render an exception when the application fails. The application is invoked with a copy of the exception in `env["action_dispatch.exception"]` and with the PATH_INFO rewritten to the status code. *José Valim*
18
3f65e7f @wfarr Add button_tag support to ActionView::Helpers::FormBuilder.
wfarr authored
19 * Add `button_tag` support to ActionView::Helpers::FormBuilder.
20
21 This support mimics the default behavior of `submit_tag`.
22
23 Example:
24
25 <%= form_for @post do |f| %>
26 <%= f.button %>
27 <% end %>
28
dc43e40 @DevL Added :use_two_digit_numbers option [Lennart Fridén & Kim Persson]
DevL authored
29 * Date helpers accept a new option, `:use_two_digit_numbers = true`, that renders select boxes for months and days with a leading zero without changing the respective values.
30 For example, this is useful for displaying ISO8601-style dates such as '2011-08-01'. *Lennart Fridén and Kim Persson*

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

josevalim authored
34 * Deprecated implied layout lookup in controllers whose parent had a explicit layout set:
35
36 class ApplicationController
37 layout "application"
38 end
39
40 class PostsController < ApplicationController
41 end
42
43 In the example above, Posts controller will no longer automatically look up for a posts layout.
44
45 If you need this functionality you could either remove `layout "application"` from ApplicationController or explicitly set it to nil in PostsController. *José Valim*
46
18ceed2 @sikachu Allow layout fallback when using `layout` method
sikachu authored
47 * Rails will now use your default layout (such as "layouts/application") when you specify a layout with `:only` and `:except` condition, and those conditions fail. *Prem Sichanugrist*
48
49 For example, consider this snippet:
50
51 class CarsController
52 layout 'single_car', :only => :show
53 end
54
55 Rails will use 'layouts/single_car' when a request comes in `:show` action, and use 'layouts/application' (or 'layouts/cars', if exists) when a request comes in for any other actions.
56
e29773f @nashby form_for with +:as+ option uses "action_as" as css class and id

57 * form_for with +:as+ option uses "#{action}_#{as}" as css class and id:
58
59 Before:
60
61 form_for(@user, :as => 'client') # => "<form class="client_new">..."
62
63 Now:
64
65 form_for(@user, :as => 'client') # => "<form class="new_client">..."

77 * You can provide a namespace for your form to ensure uniqueness of id attributes on form elements.
78 The namespace attribute will be prefixed with underscore on the generate HTML id. *Vasiliy Ermolovich*
79
80 Example:
81
82 <%= form_for(@offer, :namespace => 'namespace') do |f| %>
83 <%= f.label :version, 'Version' %>:
84 <%= f.text_field :version %>
85 <% end %>

josevalim authored
89 It's possible to override `show_detailed_exceptions?` in controllers to specify which requests should provide debugging information on errors. The default value is now false, meaning local requests in production will no longer show the detailed exceptions page unless `show_detailed_exceptions?` is overridden and set to `request.local?`.
3a1d519 @lest deprecation warning, changelog entry
lest authored

281272a @jonleighton Convert CHANGELOGs to Markdown format.
jonleighton authored
91 * Responders now return 204 No Content for API requests without a response body (as in the new scaffold) *José Valim*
92
93 * Added ActionDispatch::RequestId middleware that'll make a unique X-Request-Id header available to the response and enables the ActionDispatch::Request#uuid method. This makes it easy to trace requests from end-to-end in the stack and to identify individual requests in mixed logs like Syslog *DHH*
94
95 * Limit the number of options for select_year to 1000.
96
97 Pass the :max_years_allowed option to set your own limit.
98
99 *Libo Cannici*
100
101 * Passing formats or handlers to render :template and friends is deprecated. For example: *Nick Sutterer & José Valim*
102
103 render :template => "foo.html.erb"
104
105 Instead, you can provide :handlers and :formats directly as option:
106 render :template => "foo", :formats => [:html, :js], :handlers => :erb
107
108 * Changed log level of warning for missing CSRF token from :debug to :warn. *Mike Dillon*
109
110 * content_tag_for and div_for can now take the collection of records. It will also yield the record as the first argument if you set a receiving argument in your block *Prem Sichanugrist*
111
112 So instead of having to do this:
113
114 @items.each do |item|
115 content_tag_for(:li, item) do
116 Title: <%= item.title %>
117 end
118 end
119
120 You can now do this:
121
122 content_tag_for(:li, @items) do |item|
123 Title: <%= item.title %>
124 end
125
126 * send_file now guess the mime type *Esad Hajdarevic*
127
128 * Mime type entries for PDF, ZIP and other formats were added *Esad Hajdarevic*
129
130 * Generate hidden input before select with :multiple option set to true.
131 This is useful when you rely on the fact that when no options is set,
132 the state of select will be sent to rails application. Without hidden field
133 nothing is sent according to HTML spec *Bogdan Gusiev*
134
135 * Refactor ActionController::TestCase cookies *Andrew White*
136
137 Assigning cookies for test cases should now use cookies[], e.g:
138
139 cookies[:email] = 'user@example.com'
140 get :index
141 assert_equal 'user@example.com', cookies[:email]
142
143 To clear the cookies, use clear, e.g:
144
145 cookies.clear
146 get :index
147 assert_nil cookies[:email]
148
149 We now no longer write out HTTP_COOKIE and the cookie jar is
150 persistent between requests so if you need to manipulate the environment
151 for your test you need to do it before the cookie jar is created.
152

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

175 * Fix XSS security vulnerability in the `translate` helper method. When using interpolation
176 in combination with HTML-safe translations, the interpolated input would not get HTML
177 escaped. *GH 3664*

jonleighton authored
200 * Implement a workaround for a bug in ruby-1.9.3p0 where an error would be raised
201 while attempting to convert a template from one encoding to another.
202
203 Please see http://redmine.ruby-lang.org/issues/5564 for details of the bug.
204
205 The workaround is to load all conversions into memory ahead of time, and will
206 only happen if the ruby version is *exactly* 1.9.3p0. The hope is obviously that
207 the underlying problem will be resolved in the next patchlevel release of
208 1.9.3.

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

441 ## Rails 3.0.7 (April 18, 2011) ##
442
443 * No changes.
444
445
446 * Rails 3.0.6 (April 5, 2011)
447
448 * Fixed XSS vulnerability in `auto_link`. `auto_link` no longer marks input as
449 html safe. Please make sure that calls to auto_link() are wrapped in a
450 sanitize(), or a raw() depending on the type of input passed to auto_link().
451 For example:
452
453 <%= sanitize(auto_link(some_user_input)) %>
454
455 Thanks to Torben Schulz for reporting this. The fix can be found here:
456 61ee3449674c591747db95f9b3472c5c3bd9e84d
457
458 * 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*
459
460 * Fixes an issue with number_to_human when converting values which are less than 1 but greater than -1 *Josh Kalderimis*
461
462 * 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*
463
464 * URL parameters which return nil for to_param are now removed from the query string *Andrew White*
465
466 * Don't allow i18n to change the minor version, version now set to ~> 0.5.0 *Santiago Pastorino*
467
468 * Make TranslationHelper#translate use the :rescue_format option in I18n 0.5.0 *Sven Fuchs*
469
470 * Fix regression: javascript_include_tag shouldn't raise if you register an expansion key with nil or [] value *Santiago Pastorino*
471
472 * 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*
473
474
475 ## Rails 3.0.5 (February 26, 2011) ##
476
477 * No changes.
478

480 ## Rails 3.0.4 (February 8, 2011) ##
481
482 * No changes.
483
484
485 ## Rails 3.0.3 (November 16, 2010) ##
486
487 * When ActiveRecord::Base objects are sent to predicate methods, the id of the object should be sent to ARel, not the ActiveRecord::Base object.
488
489 * :constraints routing should only do sanity checks against regular expressions. String arguments are OK.
490
491
492 ## Rails 3.0.2 (November 15, 2010) ##
493
494 * The helper number_to_currency accepts a new :negative_format option to be able to configure how to render negative amounts. *Don Wilson*
495
496
497 ## Rails 3.0.1 (October 15, 2010) ##
498

500
501
502 ## Rails 3.0.0 (August 29, 2010) ##
503
504 * 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*
505
506 * 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*
507
508 * 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*
509
510 * Support routing constraints in functional tests. *Andrew White*
511
512 * Add a header that tells Internet Explorer (all versions) to use the best available standards support. *Yehuda Katz*
513
514 * Allow stylesheet/javascript extensions to be changed through railties. *Josh Kalderimis*
515
516 * link_to, button_to, and tag/tag_options now rely on html_escape instead of escape_once. *fxn*
517
518 * url_for returns always unescaped strings, and the :escape option is gone. *fxn*
519
520 * Added accept-charset parameter and _snowman hidden field to force the contents
521 of Rails POSTed forms to be in UTF-8 *Yehuda Katz*
522
523 * Upgrade to Rack 1.2.1 *Jeremy Kemper*
524
525 * Allow :path to be given to match/get/post/put/delete instead of :path_names in the new router *Carlos Antônio da Silva*
526
527 * Added resources_path_names to the new router DSL *José Valim*
528
529 * Allow options to be given to the namespace method in the new router *Carlos Antônio da Silva*
530
531 * Deprecate :name_prefix in the new router DSL *José Valim*
532
533 * Add shallow routes back to the new router *Diego Carrion, Andrew White*
534
535 resources :posts do
536 shallow do
537 resources :comments
538 end
539 end
540
541 You can now use comment_path for /comments/1 instead of post_comment_path for /posts/1/comments/1.
542
543 * 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*
544
545 * Removed textilize, textilize_without_paragraph and markdown helpers. *Santiago Pastorino*
546
547 * Remove middleware laziness *José Valim*
548
549 * Make session stores rely on request.cookie_jar and change set_session semantics to return the cookie value instead of a boolean. *José Valim*
550
551 * OAuth 2: HTTP Token Authorization support to complement Basic and Digest Authorization. *Rick Olson*
552
553 * Fixed inconsistencies in form builder and view helpers #4432 *Neeraj Singh*
554
555 * 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*
556
557 * Renamed the field error CSS class from fieldWithErrors to field_with_errors for consistency. *Jeremy Kemper*
558
559 * Add support for shorthand routes like /projects/status(.:format) #4423 *Diego Carrion*
560
561 * 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*
562
563 * 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*
564
565 * Removed verify method in controllers. *JV*
566 It's now available as a plugin at http://github.com/rails/verification
567
568 * Removed input, form, error_messages_for and error_message_on from views. *JV*
569 It's now available as a plugin at http://github.com/rails/dynamic_form
570
571 * Routes can be scoped by controller module. *Jeremy Kemper*
572
573 # /session => Auth::SessionsController
574 scope :module => 'auth' do
575 resource :session
576 end
577
578 * Added #favicon_link_tag, it uses #image_path so in particular the favicon gets an asset ID *fxn*
579
580 * Fixed that default locale templates should be used if the current locale template is missing *DHH*
581
582 * Added all the new HTML5 form types as individual form tag methods (search, url, number, etc) #3646 *Stephen Celis*
583
584 * Changed the object used in routing constraints to be an instance of
585 ActionDispatch::Request rather than Rack::Request *YK*
586
587 * Changed ActionDispatch::Request#method to return a String, to be compatible
588 with Rack::Request. Added ActionDispatch::Request#method_symbol to
589 return a symbol form of the request method. *YK*
590
591 * Changed ActionDispatch::Request#method to return the original
592 method and #request_method to return the overridden method in the
593 case of methodoverride being used (this means that #method returns
594 "HEAD" and #request_method returns "GET" in HEAD requests). This
595 is for compatibility with Rack::Request *YK*
596
597 * #concat is now deprecated in favor of using <%= %> helpers *YK*
598
599 * Block helpers now return Strings, so you can use <%= form_for @foo do |f| %>.
600 <% form_for do |f| %> still works with deprecation notices *YK*
601
602 * Add a new #mount method on the router that does not anchor the PATH_INFO
603 at the end *YK & CL*
604
605 * Create a new LookupContext object that is responsible for performantly
606 finding a template for a given pattern *JV*
607
608 * Removed relative_url_for in favor of respecting SCRIPT_NAME *YK & CL*
609
610 * Changed file streaming to use Rack::Sendfile middleware *YK*
611
612 * ActionDispatch::Request#content_type returns a String to be compatible with
613 Rack::Request. Use #content_mime_type for the Mime::Type instance *YK*
614
615 * Updated Prototype to 1.6.1 and Scriptaculous to 1.8.3 *ML*
616
617 * Change the preferred way that URL helpers are included into a class*YK & CL*
618
619 # for all helpers including named routes
620 include Rails.application.router.url_helpers
621
622 # for just url_for
623 include Rails.application.router.url_for
624
625 * Fixed that PrototypeHelper#update_page should return html_safe *DHH*
626
627 * Fixed that much of DateHelper wouldn't return html_safe? strings *DHH*
628
629 * Fixed that fragment caching should return a cache hit as html_safe (or it would all just get escaped) *DHH*
630
631 * Added that ActionController::Base now does helper :all instead of relying on the default ApplicationController in Rails to do it *DHH*
632
633 * Added ActionDispatch::Request#authorization to access the http authentication header regardless of its proxy hiding *DHH*
634
635 * Added :alert, :notice, and :flash as options to ActionController::Base#redirect_to that'll automatically set the proper flash before the redirection [DHH]. Examples:
636
637 flash[:notice] = 'Post was created'
638 redirect_to(@post)
639
640 ...becomes:
641
642 redirect_to(@post, :notice => 'Post was created')
643
644 * 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*
645
646
647 * Introduce grouped_collection_select helper. #1249 *Dan Codeape, Erik Ostrom*
648
649 * Make sure javascript_include_tag/stylesheet_link_tag does not append ".js" or ".css" onto external urls. #1664 *Matthew Rudy Jacobs*
650
651 * Ruby 1.9: fix Content-Length for multibyte send_data streaming. #2661 *Sava Chankov*
652
653 * Ruby 1.9: ERB template encoding using a magic comment at the top of the file. *Jeremy Kemper*
654 <%# encoding: utf-8 %>
655
656 * Change integration test helpers to accept Rack environment instead of just HTTP Headers *Pratik Naik*
657
658 Before : get '/path', {}, 'Accept' => 'text/javascript'
659 After : get '/path', {}, 'HTTP_ACCEPT' => 'text/javascript'
660
661 * Instead of checking Rails.env.test? in Failsafe middleware, check env["rails.raise_exceptions"] *Bryan Helmkamp*
662
663 * Fixed that TestResponse.cookies was returning cookies unescaped #1867 *Doug McInnes*
664
665
666 ## 2.3.2 Final (March 15, 2009) ##
667
668 * Fixed that redirection would just log the options, not the final url (which lead to "Redirected to #<Post:0x23150b8>") *DHH*
669
670 * Don't check authenticity tokens for any AJAX requests *Ross Kaffenberger/Bryan Helmkamp*
671
672 * Added ability to pass in :public => true to fresh_when, stale?, and expires_in to make the request proxy cachable #2095 *Gregg Pollack*
673
674 * Fixed that passing a custom form builder would be forwarded to nested fields_for calls #2023 *Eloy Duran/Nate Wiger*
675
676 * Form option helpers now support disabled option tags and the use of lambdas for selecting/disabling option tags from collections #837 *Tekin*
677
678 * 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*
679
680 * Fix a syntax error in current_page?() that was prevent matches against URL's with multiple query parameters #1385, #1868 *chris finne/Andrew White*
681
682 * Added localized rescue template when I18n.locale is set (ex: public/404.da.html) #1835 *José Valim*
683
684 * Make the form_for and fields_for helpers support the new Active Record nested update options. #1202 *Eloy Duran*
685
686 <% form_for @person do |person_form| %>
687 ...
688 <% person_form.fields_for :projects do |project_fields| %>
689 <% if project_fields.object.active? %>
690 Name: <%= project_fields.text_field :name %>
691 <% end %>
692 <% end %>
693 <% end %>
694
695
696 * Added grouped_options_for_select helper method for wrapping option tags in optgroups. #977 *Jon Crawford*
697
698 * Implement HTTP Digest authentication. #1230 [Gregg Kellogg, Pratik Naik] Example :
699
700 class DummyDigestController < ActionController::Base
701 USERS = { "lifo" => 'world' }
702
703 before_filter :authenticate
704
705 def index
706 render :text => "Hello Secret"
707 end
708
709 private
710
711 def authenticate
712 authenticate_or_request_with_http_digest("Super Secret") do |username|
713 # Return the user's password
714 USERS[username]
715 end
716 end
717 end
718
719 * Improved i18n support for the number_to_human_size helper. Changes the storage_units translation data; update your translations accordingly. #1634 *Yaroslav Markin*
720 storage_units:
721 # %u is the storage unit, %n is the number (default: 2 MB)
722 format: "%n %u"
723 units:
724 byte:
725 one: "Byte"
726 other: "Bytes"
727 kb: "KB"
728 mb: "MB"
729 gb: "GB"
730 tb: "TB"
731
732 * Added :silence option to BenchmarkHelper#benchmark and turned log_level into a hash parameter and deprecated the old use *DHH*
733
734 * 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*
735
736 * Make ActionController#render(string) work as a shortcut for render :file/:template/:action => string. [#1435] [Pratik Naik] Examples:
737
738 \# Instead of render(:action => 'other_action')
739 render('other_action') # argument has no '/'
740 render(:other_action)
741
742 \# Instead of render(:template => 'controller/action')
743 render('controller/action') # argument must not begin with a '/', but contain a '/'
744
745 \# Instead of render(:file => '/Users/lifo/home.html.erb')
746 render('/Users/lifo/home.html.erb') # argument must begin with a '/'
747
748 * Add :prompt option to date/time select helpers. #561 *Sam Oliver*
749
750 * Fixed that send_file shouldn't set an etag #1578 *Hongli Lai*
751
752 * Allow users to opt out of the spoofing checks in Request#remote_ip. Useful for sites whose traffic regularly triggers false positives. *Darren Boyd*
753
754 * Deprecated formatted_polymorphic_url. *Jeremy Kemper*
755
756 * 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*
757
758 * 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*
759
760 * Dropped formatted_* routes in favor of just passing in :format as an option. This cuts resource routes generation in half #1359 *aaronbatalion*
761
762 * 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*
763
764 * Allow helpers directory to be overridden via ActionController::Base.helpers_dir #1424 *Sam Pohlenz*
765
766 * Remove deprecated ActionController::Base#assign_default_content_type_and_charset
767
768 * Changed the default of ActionView#render to assume partials instead of files when not given an options hash [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
769
770 # Instead of <%= render :partial => "account" %>
771 <%= render "account" %>
772
773 # Instead of <%= render :partial => "account", :locals => { :account => @buyer } %>
774 <%= render "account", :account => @buyer %>
775
776 # @account is an Account instance, so it uses the RecordIdentifier to replace
777 # <%= render :partial => "accounts/account", :locals => { :account => @account } %>
778 <%= render(@account) %>
779
780 # @posts is an array of Post instances, so it uses the RecordIdentifier to replace
781 # <%= render :partial => "posts/post", :collection => @posts %>
782 <%= render(@posts) %>
783
784 * Remove deprecated render_component. Please use the plugin from http://github.com/rails/render_component/tree/master *Pratik Naik*
785
786 * 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*
787
788
789 ## 2.2.2 (November 21st, 2008) ##
790
791 * I18n: translate number_to_human_size. Add storage_units: [Bytes, KB, MB, GB, TB] to your translations. #1448 *Yaroslav Markin*
792
793 * Restore backwards compatible functionality for setting relative_url_root. Include deprecation
794
795 * Switched the CSRF module to use the request content type to decide if the request is forgeable. #1145 *Jeff Cohen*
796
797 * 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*
798
799 map.resources :products, :only => :show do |product|
800 product.resources :images, :except => :destroy
801 end
802
803 * Added render :js for people who want to render inline JavaScript replies without using RJS *David Heinemeier Hansson*
804
805 * Fixed that polymorphic_url should compact given array #1317 *hiroshi*
806
807 * Fixed the sanitize helper to avoid double escaping already properly escaped entities #683 *antonmos/Ryan McGeary*
808
809 * Fixed that FormTagHelper generated illegal html if name contained square brackets #1238 *Vladimir Dobriakov*
810
811 * 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*
812
813 * Simplified the logging format for parameters (don't include controller, action, and format as duplicates) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
814
815 * Remove the logging of the Session ID when the session store is CookieStore *David Heinemeier Hansson*
816
817 * Fixed regex in redirect_to to fully support URI schemes #1247 *Seth Fitzsimmons*
818
819 * Fixed bug with asset timestamping when using relative_url_root #1265 *Joe Goldwasser*
820
821
822 ## 2.2.0 RC1 (October 24th, 2008) ##
823
824 * Fix incorrect closing CDATA delimiter and that HTML::Node.parse would blow up on unclosed CDATA sections *packagethief*
825
826 * Added stale? and fresh_when methods to provide a layer of abstraction above request.fresh? and friends [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
827
828 class ArticlesController < ApplicationController
829 def show_with_respond_to_block
830 @article = Article.find(params[:id])
831
832
833 # If the request sends headers that differs from the options provided to stale?, then
834 # the request is indeed stale and the respond_to block is triggered (and the options
835 # to the stale? call is set on the response).
836 #
837 # If the request headers match, then the request is fresh and the respond_to block is
838 # not triggered. Instead the default render will occur, which will check the last-modified
839 # and etag headers and conclude that it only needs to send a "304 Not Modified" instead
840 # of rendering the template.
841 if stale?(:last_modified => @article.published_at.utc, :etag => @article)
842 respond_to do |wants|
843 # normal response processing
844 end
845 end
846 end
847
848 def show_with_implied_render
849 @article = Article.find(params[:id])
850
851 # Sets the response headers and checks them against the request, if the request is stale
852 # (i.e. no match of either etag or last-modified), then the default render of the template happens.
853 # If the request is fresh, then the default render will return a "304 Not Modified"
854 # instead of rendering the template.
855 fresh_when(:last_modified => @article.published_at.utc, :etag => @article)
856 end
857 end
858
859
860 * Added inline builder yield to atom_feed_helper tags where appropriate [Sam Ruby]. Example:
861
862 entry.summary :type => 'xhtml' do |xhtml|
863 xhtml.p pluralize(order.line_items.count, "line item")
864 xhtml.p "Shipped to #{order.address}"
865 xhtml.p "Paid by #{order.pay_type}"
866 end
867
868 * Make PrototypeHelper#submit_to_remote a wrapper around PrototypeHelper#button_to_remote. *Tarmo Tänav*
869
870 * Set HttpOnly for the cookie session store's cookie. #1046
871
872 * Added FormTagHelper#image_submit_tag confirm option #784 *Alastair Brunton*
873
874 * Fixed FormTagHelper#submit_tag with :disable_with option wouldn't submit the button's value when was clicked #633 *Jose Fernandez*
875
876 * Stopped logging template compiles as it only clogs up the log *David Heinemeier Hansson*
877
878 * Changed the X-Runtime header to report in milliseconds *David Heinemeier Hansson*
879
880 * Changed BenchmarkHelper#benchmark to report in milliseconds *David Heinemeier Hansson*
881
882 * Changed logging format to be millisecond based and skip misleading stats [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Went from:
883
884 Completed in 0.10000 (4 reqs/sec) | Rendering: 0.04000 (40%) | DB: 0.00400 (4%) | 200 OK [http://example.com]
885
886 ...to:
887
888 Completed in 100ms (View: 40, DB: 4) | 200 OK [http://example.com]
889
890 * Add support for shallow nesting of routes. #838 *S. Brent Faulkner*
891
892 Example :
893
894 map.resources :users, :shallow => true do |user|
895 user.resources :posts
896 end
897
898 - GET /users/1/posts (maps to PostsController#index action as usual)
899 named route "user_posts" is added as usual.
900
901 - GET /posts/2 (maps to PostsController#show action as if it were not nested)
902 Additionally, named route "post" is added too.
903
904 * Added button_to_remote helper. #3641 *Donald Piret, Tarmo Tänav*
905
906 * Deprecate render_component. Please use render_component plugin from http://github.com/rails/render_component/tree/master *Pratik Naik*
907
908 * Routes may be restricted to lists of HTTP methods instead of a single method or :any. #407 *Brennan Dunn, Gaius Centus Novus*
909 map.resource :posts, :collection => { :search => [:get, :post] }
910 map.session 'session', :requirements => { :method => [:get, :post, :delete] }
911
912 * Deprecated implicit local assignments when rendering partials *Josh Peek*
913
914 * Introduce current_cycle helper method to return the current value without bumping the cycle. #417 *Ken Collins*
915
916 * Allow polymorphic_url helper to take url options. #880 *Tarmo Tänav*
917
918 * Switched integration test runner to use Rack processor instead of CGI *Josh Peek*
919
920 * Made AbstractRequest.if_modified_sense return nil if the header could not be parsed *Jamis Buck*
921
922 * Added back ActionController::Base.allow_concurrency flag *Josh Peek*
923
924 * 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*
925
926 * Update Prototype to 1.6.0.2 #599 *Patrick Joyce*
927
928 * Conditional GET utility methods. *Jeremy Kemper*
929 response.last_modified = @post.updated_at
930 response.etag = [:admin, @post, current_user]
931
932 if request.fresh?(response)
933 head :not_modified
934 else
935 # render ...
936 end
937
938 * All 2xx requests are considered successful *Josh Peek*
939
940 * 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*
941
942 * Removed config.action_view.cache_template_loading, use config.cache_classes instead *Josh Peek*
943
944 * Get buffer for fragment cache from template's @output_buffer *Josh Peek*
945
946 * 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*
947
948 * Refactor template preloading. New abstractions include Renderable mixins and a refactored Template class *Josh Peek*
949
950 * Changed ActionView::TemplateHandler#render API method signature to render(template, local_assigns = {}) *Josh Peek*
951
952 * 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*
953
954 * Add :recursive option to javascript_include_tag and stylesheet_link_tag to be used along with :all. #480 *Damian Janowski*
955
956 * Allow users to disable the use of the Accept header *Michael Koziarski*
957
958 The accept header is poorly implemented by browsers and causes strange
959 errors when used on public sites where crawlers make requests too. You can use formatted urls (e.g. /people/1.xml) to support API clients in a much simpler way.
960 To disable the header you need to set:
961 config.action_controller.use_accept_header = false
962 * 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*
963
964 * Deprecated TemplateHandler line offset *Josh Peek*
965
966 * Allow caches_action to accept cache store options. #416. [José Valim]. Example:
967
968 caches_action :index, :redirected, :if => Proc.new { |c| !c.request.format.json? }, :expires_in => 1.hour
969
970 * Remove define_javascript_functions, javascript_include_tag and friends are far superior. *Michael Koziarski*
971
972 * Deprecate :use_full_path render option. The supplying the option no longer has an effect *Josh Peek*
973
974 * Add :as option to render a collection of partials with a custom local variable name. #509 *Simon Jefford, Pratik Naik*
975
976 render :partial => 'other_people', :collection => @people, :as => :person
977
978 This will let you access objects of @people as 'person' local variable inside 'other_people' partial template.
979
980 * time_zone_select: support for regexp matching of priority zones. Resolves #195 *Ernie Miller*
981
982 * Made ActionView::Base#render_file private *Josh Peek*
983
984 * 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*
985
986 This could cause some erroneous test failures if you were redirecting between controllers
987 in different namespaces and wrote your assertions relative to the root of the application.
988
989 * Remove follow_redirect from controller functional tests.
990
991 If you want to follow redirects you can use integration tests. The functional test version was only useful if you were using redirect_to :id=>...
992 * Fix polymorphic_url with singleton resources. #461 *Tammer Saleh*
993
994 * Replaced TemplateFinder abstraction with ViewLoadPaths *Josh Peek*
995
996 * Added block-call style to link_to [Sam Stephenson/David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
997
998 <% link_to(@profile) do %>
999 <strong><%= @profile.name %></strong> -- <span>Check it out!!</span>
1000 <% end %>
1001
1002 * Performance: integration test benchmarking and profiling. *Jeremy Kemper*
1003
1004 * Make caching more aware of mime types. Ensure request format is not considered while expiring cache. *Jonathan del Strother*
1005
1006 * Drop ActionController::Base.allow_concurrency flag *Josh Peek*
1007
1008 * More efficient concat and capture helpers. Remove ActionView::Base.erb_variable. *Jeremy Kemper*
1009
1010 * Added page.reload functionality. Resolves #277. *Sean Huber*
1011
1012 * 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*
1013
1014 * Allow caches_action to accept a layout option *José Valim*
1015
1016 * Added Rack processor *Ezra Zygmuntowicz, Josh Peek*
1017
1018

1026
1027 * 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*
1028 * 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*

1033
1034 * 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*
1035
1036 * Reduce number of instance variables being copied from controller to view. *Pratik Naik*
1037
1038 * select_datetime and select_time default to Time.zone.now when config.time_zone is set *Geoff Buesing*

1056 @post = Post.create params[:post]
1057 # ...
1058 end
1059
1060 * add json_escape ERB util to escape html entities in json strings that are output in HTML pages. *Rick Olson*
1061
1062 * Provide a helper proxy to access helper methods from outside views. Closes #10839 *Josh Peek*
1063 e.g. ApplicationController.helpers.simple_format(text)
1064
1065 * Improve documentation. *Xavier Noria, leethal, jerome*
1066
1067 * Ensure RJS redirect_to doesn't html-escapes string argument. Closes #8546 *Josh Peek, eventualbuddha, Pratik Naik*

This makes it possible for JS requests to automatically render action.js.rjs files without an explicit respond_to block *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1124
1125 * Tests for distance_of_time_in_words with TimeWithZone instances. Closes #10914 *Ernesto Jimenez*

1171 * Fixed ActionView::Helpers::ActiveRecordHelper::form for when protect_from_forgery is used #10739 *Jeremy Evans*
1172
1173 * Provide nicer access to HTTP Headers. Instead of request.env["HTTP_REFERRER"] you can now use request.headers["Referrer"]. *Michael Koziarski*
1174
1175 * UrlWriter respects relative_url_root. #10748 *Cheah Chu Yeow*
1176
1177 * The asset_host block takes the controller request as an optional second argument. Example: use a single asset host for SSL requests. #10549 *Cheah Chu Yeow, Peter B, Tom Taylor*
1178
1179 * Support render :text => nil. #6684 *tjennings, PotatoSalad, Cheah Chu Yeow*

1183 * All fragment cache keys are now by default prefixed with the "views/" namespace *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1184
1185 * Moved the caching stores from ActionController::Caching::Fragments::* to ActiveSupport::Cache::*.

1361
1362 * Make sure that custom inflections are picked up by map.resources. #9815 *Mislav Marohnić*

1387
1388
1389 ## 2.0.0 Preview Release (September 29th, 2007) Includes duplicates of changes from 1.12.2 - 1.13.3 ##
1390
1391 * Fixed that render template did not honor exempt_from_layout #9698 *pezra*
1392
1393 * Better error messages if you leave out the :secret option for request forgery protection. Closes #9670 *Rick Olson*
1394
1395 * Allow ability to disable request forgery protection, disable it in test mode by default. Closes #9693 *Pratik Naik*
1396
1397 * Avoid calling is_missing on LoadErrors. Closes #7460. *ntalbott*
1398
1399 * Move Railties' Dispatcher to ActionController::Dispatcher, introduce before_ and after_dispatch callbacks, and warm up to non-CGI requests. *Jeremy Kemper*
1400
1401 * The tag helper may bypass escaping. *Jeremy Kemper*
1402
1403 * Cache asset ids. *Jeremy Kemper*
1404
1405 * Optimized named routes respect AbstractRequest.relative_url_root. #9612 *Daniel Morrison, Jeremy Kemper*
1406
1407 * Introduce ActionController::Base.rescue_from to declare exception-handling methods. Cleaner style than the case-heavy rescue_action_in_public. #9449 *Norbert Crombach*
1408
1409 * Rename some RequestForgeryProtection methods. The class method is now #protect_from_forgery, and the default parameter is now 'authenticity_token'. *Rick Olson*
1410
1411 * Merge csrf_killer plugin into rails. Adds RequestForgeryProtection model that verifies session-specific _tokens for non-GET requests. *Rick Olson*
1412
1413 * Secure #sanitize, #strip_tags, and #strip_links helpers against xss attacks. Closes #8877. *Rick Olson, Pratik Naik, Jacques Distler*
1414
1415 This merges and renames the popular white_list helper (along with some css sanitizing from Jacques Distler version of the same plugin).
1416 Also applied updated versions of #strip_tags and #strip_links from #8877.
1417
1418 * Remove use of & logic operator. Closes #8114. *watson*
1419
1420 * Fixed JavaScriptHelper#escape_javascript to also escape closing tags #8023 *Ruy Asan*
1421
1422 * Fixed TextHelper#word_wrap for multiline strings with extra carrier returns #8663 *seth*
1423
1424 * Fixed that setting the :host option in url_for would automatically turn off :only_path (since :host would otherwise not be shown) #9586 *Bounga*
1425
1426 * Added FormHelper#label. #8641, #9850 *jcoglan, Jarkko Laine*
1427
1428 * Added AtomFeedHelper (slightly improved from the atom_feed_helper plugin) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1429
1430 * Prevent errors when generating routes for uncountable resources, (i.e. sheep where plural == singluar). map.resources :sheep now creates sheep_index_url for the collection and sheep_url for the specific item. *Michael Koziarski*
1431
1432 * Added support for HTTP Only cookies (works in IE6+ and FF 2.0.5+) as an improvement for XSS attacks #8895 *Pratik Naik, Mark Somerville*
1433
1434 * Don't warn when a path segment precedes a required segment. Closes #9615. *Nicholas Seckar*
1435
1436 * Fixed CaptureHelper#content_for to work with the optional content parameter instead of just the block #9434 [sandofsky/wildchild].
1437
1438 * Added Mime::Type.register_alias for dealing with different formats using the same mime type [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1439
1440 class PostsController < ApplicationController
1441 before_filter :adjust_format_for_iphone
1442
1443 def index
1444 @posts = Post.find(:all)
1445
1446 respond_to do |format|
1447 format.html # => renders index.html.erb and uses "text/html" as the content type
1448 format.iphone # => renders index.iphone.erb and uses "text/html" as the content type
1449 end
1450 end
1451
1452
1453 private
1454 def adjust_format_for_iphone
1455 if request.env["HTTP_USER_AGENT"] && request.env["HTTP_USER_AGENT"][/iPhone/]
1456 request.format = :iphone
1457 end
1458 end
1459 end
1460
1461 * Added that render :json will automatically call .to_json unless it's being passed a string [David Heinemeier Hansson].
1462
1463 * Autolink behaves well with emails embedded in URLs. #7313 *Jeremy McAnally, Tarmo Tänav*
1464
1465 * Fixed that default layouts did not take the format into account #9564 *Pratik Naik*
1466
1467 * Fixed optimized route segment escaping. #9562 *wildchild, Jeremy Kemper*
1468
1469 * Added block acceptance to JavaScriptHelper#javascript_tag. #7527 *Bob Silva, Tarmo Tänav, rmm5t*
1470
1471 * root_path returns '/' not ''. #9563 *Pratik Naik*
1472
1473 * Fixed that setting request.format should also affect respond_to blocks *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1474
1475 * Add option to force binary mode on tempfile used for fixture_file_upload. #6380 *Jonathan Viney*
1476
1477 * Fixed that resource namespaces wouldn't stick to all nested resources #9399 *pixeltrix*
1478
1479 * Moved ActionController::Macros::AutoComplete into the auto_complete plugin on the official Rails svn. #9512 *Pratik Naik*
1480
1481 * Moved ActionController::Macros::InPlaceEditing into the in_place_editor plugin on the official Rails svn. #9513 *Pratik Naik*
1482
1483 * Removed deprecated form of calling xml_http_request/xhr without the first argument being the http verb *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1484
1485 * Removed deprecated methods [David Heinemeier Hansson]:
1486
1487 - ActionController::Base#keep_flash (use flash.keep instead)
1488 - ActionController::Base#expire_matched_fragments (just call expire_fragment with a regular expression)
1489 - ActionController::Base.template_root/= methods (use ActionController#Base.view_paths/= instead)
1490 - ActionController::Base.cookie (use ActionController#Base.cookies[]= instead)
1491
1492 * Removed the deprecated behavior of appending ".png" to image_tag/image_path calls without an existing extension *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1493
1494 * 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*
1495
1496 * Optimise named route generation when using positional arguments. *Michael Koziarski*
1497
1498 This change delivers significant performance benefits for the most
1499 common usage scenarios for modern rails applications by avoiding the
1500 costly trip through url_for. Initial benchmarks indicate this is
1501 between 6 and 20 times as fast.
1502
1503 * Explicitly require active_record/query_cache before using it. *Jeremy Kemper*
1504
1505 * Fix layout overriding response status. #9476 *lotswholetime*
1506
1507 * Add field_set_tag for generating field_sets, closes #9477. *Damian Janowski*
1508
1509 * Allow additional parameters to be passed to named route helpers when using positional arguments. Closes #8930 *Ian White*
1510
1511 * Make render :partial work with a :collection of Hashes, previously this wasn't possible due to backwards compatibility restrictions. *Pratik Naik*
1512
1513 * request.host works with IPv6 addresses. #9458 *yuya*
1514
1515 * Fix bug where action caching sets the content type to the ActionCachePath object. Closes #9282 *mindforge*
1516
1517 * Find layouts even if they're not in the first view_paths directory. Closes #9258 *caio*
1518
1519 * Major improvement to the documentation for the options / select form helpers. Closes #9038 *Chris Kampmeier, jardeon, wesg*
1520
1521 * Fix number_to_human_size when using different precisions. Closes #7536. *RichardStrand, mpalmer*
1522
1523 * Added partial layouts (see example in action_view/lib/partials.rb) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1524
1525 * Allow you to set custom :conditions on resource routes. *Rick Olson*
1526
1527 * Fixed that file.content_type for uploaded files would include a trailing \r #9053 *Brad Greenlee*
1528
1529 * url_for now accepts a series of symbols representing the namespace of the record *Josh Knowles*
1530
1531 * Make :trailing_slash work with query parameters for url_for. Closes #4004 *nov*
1532
1533 * Make sure missing template exceptions actually say which template they were looking for. Closes #8683 *dasil003*
1534
1535 * Fix errors with around_filters which do not yield, restore 1.1 behaviour with after filters. Closes #8891 *Stefan Kaes*
1536
1537 After filters will *no longer* be run if an around_filter fails to yield, users relying on
1538 this behaviour are advised to put the code in question after a yield statement in an around filter.
1539
1540
1541 * Allow you to delete cookies with options. Closes #3685 *Josh Peek, Chris Wanstrath*
1542
1543 * Allow you to render views with periods in the name. Closes #8076 *Norbert Crombach*
1544
1545 render :partial => 'show.html.erb'
1546
1547 * Improve capture helper documentation. #8796 *Chris Kampmeier*
1548
1549 * 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*
1550
1551 * Allow sweepers to be created solely for expiring after controller actions, not model changes *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1552
1553 * Added assigns method to ActionController::Caching::Sweeper to easily access instance variables on the controller *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1554
1555 * Give the legacy X-POST_DATA_FORMAT header greater precedence during params parsing for backward compatibility. *Jeremy Kemper*
1556
1557 * Fixed that link_to with an href of # when using :method will not allow for click-through without JavaScript #7037 *Steven Bristol, Josh Peek*
1558
1559 * Fixed that radio_button_tag should generate unique ids #3353 *Bob Silva, Rebecca, Josh Peek*
1560
1561 * Fixed that HTTP authentication should work if the header is called REDIRECT_X_HTTP_AUTHORIZATION as well #6754 *Mislav Marohnić*
1562
1563 * Don't mistakenly interpret the request uri as the query string. #8731 *Pratik Naik, Jeremy Kemper*
1564
1565 * 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*
1566
1567 * Tolerate missing content type on multipart file uploads. Fix for Safari 3. *Jeremy Kemper*
1568
1569 * Deprecation: remove pagination. Install the classic_pagination plugin for forward compatibility, or move to the superior will_paginate plugin. #8157 *Josh Peek*
1570
1571 * Action caching is limited to GET requests returning 200 OK status. #3335 *tom@craz8.com, halfbyte, Dan Kubb, Josh Peek*
1572
1573 * Improve Text Helper test coverage. #7274 *Rob Sanheim, Josh Peek*
1574
1575 * Improve helper test coverage. #7208, #7212, #7215, #7233, #7234, #7235, #7236, #7237, #7238, #7241, #7243, #7244 *Rich Collins, Josh Peek*
1576
1577 * Improve UrlRewriter tests. #7207 *Rich Collins*
1578
1579 * 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*
1580
1581 * Assume html format when rendering partials in RJS. #8076 *Rick Olson*
1582
1583 * Don't double-escape url_for in views. #8144 *Rich Collins, Josh Peek*
1584
1585 * Allow JSON-style values for the :with option of observe_field. Closes #8557 *kommen*
1586
1587 * Remove RAILS_ROOT from backtrace paths. #8540 *Tim Pope*
1588
1589 * Routing: map.resource :logo routes to LogosController so the controller may be reused for multiple nestings or namespaces. *Jeremy Kemper*
1590
1591 * render :partial recognizes Active Record associations as Arrays. #8538 *Kamal Fariz Mahyuddin*
1592
1593 * Routing: drop semicolon and comma as route separators. *Jeremy Kemper*
1594
1595 * request.remote_ip understands X-Forwarded-For addresses with nonstandard whitespace. #7386 *moses*
1596
1597 * Don't prepare response when rendering a component. #8493 *jsierles*
1598
1599 * Reduce file stat calls when checking for template changes. #7736 *alex*
1600
1601 * Added custom path cache_page/expire_page parameters in addition to the options hashes [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1602
1603 def index
1604 caches_page(response.body, "/index.html")
1605 end
1606

1616
1617 * Make assert_select's failure messages clearer about what failed. #7779 *dchelimsky*
1618
1619 * Introduce a default respond_to block for custom types. #8174 *Josh Peek*
1620
1621 * auto_complete_field takes a :method option so you can GET or POST. #8120 *zapnap*
1622
1623 * Added option to suppress :size when using :maxlength for FormTagHelper#text_field #3112 *Tim Pope*
1624
1625 * catch possible WSOD when trying to render a missing partial. Closes #8454 *Jonathan del Strother*
1626
1627 * Rewind request body after reading it, if possible. #8438 *s450r1*
1628
1629 * Resource namespaces are inherited by their has_many subresources. #8280 *marclove, Geoff Garside*
1630
1631 * Fix filtered parameter logging with nil parameter values. #8422 *choonkeat*
1632
1633 * 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*
1634
1635 * Document caches_action. #5419 *Jarkko Laine*
1636
1637 * Update to Prototype 1.5.1. *Sam Stephenson*
1638
1639 * Allow routes to be decalred under namespaces [Tobias Lütke]:
1640
1641 map.namespace :admin do |admin|
1642 admin.root :controller => "products"
1643 admin.feed 'feed.xml', :controller => 'products', :action => 'feed', :format => 'xml'
1644 end
1645
1646 * Update to script.aculo.us 1.7.1_beta3. *Thomas Fuchs*
1647
1648 * observe_form always sends the serialized form. #5271 *Manfred Stienstra, normelton@gmail.com*
1649
1650 * Parse url-encoded and multipart requests ourselves instead of delegating to CGI. *Jeremy Kemper*
1651
1652 * select :include_blank option can be set to a string instead of true, which just uses an empty string. #7664 *Wizard*
1653
1654 * Added url_for usage on render :location, which allows for record identification [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1655
1656 render :xml => person, :status => :created, :location => person
1657
1658 ...expands the location to person_url(person).
1659
1660 * 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*
1661
1662 * Add some performance enhancements to ActionView.
1663
1664 * Cache base_paths in @@cached_base_paths
1665 * Cache template extensions in @@cached_template_extension
1666 * Remove unnecessary rescues
1667
1668 * Assume that rendered partials go by the HTML format by default
1669
1670 def my_partial
1671 render :update do |page|
1672 # in this order
1673 # _foo.html.erb
1674 # _foo.erb
1675 # _foo.rhtml
1676 page.replace :foo, :partial => 'foo'
1677 end
1678 end
1679
1680 * Added record identifications to FormHelper#form_for and PrototypeHelper#remote_form_for [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
1681
1682 <% form_for(@post) do |f| %>
1683 ...
1684 <% end %>
1685
1686 This will expand to be the same as:
1687
1688 <% form_for :post, @post, :url => post_path(@post), :html => { :method => :put, :class => "edit_post", :id => "edit_post_45" } do |f| %>
1689 ...
1690 <% end %>
1691
1692 And for new records:
1693
1694 <% form_for(Post.new) do |f| %>
1695 ...
1696 <% end %>
1697
1698 This will expand to be the same as:
1699
1700 <% form_for :post, @post, :url => posts_path, :html => { :class => "new_post", :id => "new_post" } do |f| %>
1701 ...
1702 <% end %>
1703
1704 * Rationalize route path escaping according to RFC 2396 section 3.3. #7544, #8307. *Jeremy Kemper, Chris Roos, begemot, jugend*
1705
1706 * Added record identification with polymorphic routes for ActionController::Base#url_for and ActionView::Base#url_for [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
1707
1708 redirect_to(post) # => redirect_to(posts_url(post)) => Location: http://example.com/posts/1
1709 link_to(post.title, post) # => link_to(post.title, posts_url(post)) => <a href="/posts/1">Hello world</a>
1710
1711 Any method that calls url_for on its parameters will automatically benefit from this.
1712
1713 * Removed deprecated parameters_for_method_reference concept (legacy from before named routes) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1714
1715 * Add ActionController::Routing::Helpers, a module to contain common URL helpers such as polymorphic_url. *Nicholas Seckar*
1716
1717 * Included the HttpAuthentication plugin as part of core (ActionController::HttpAuthentication::Basic) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1718
1719 * Modernize documentation for form helpers. *Jeremy McAnally*
1720
1721 * Add brief introduction to REST to the resources documentation. *fearoffish*
1722
1723 * Fix various documentation typos throughout ActionPack. *Henrik N*
1724
1725 * Enhance documentation and add examples for url_for. *Jeremy McAnally*
1726
1727 * Fix documentation typo in routes. *Norbert Crombach, pam*
1728
1729 * Sweep flash when filter chain is halted. *Caio Chassot <lists@v2studio.com>*
1730
1731 * 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*
1732
1733 * Replace the current block/continuation filter chain handling by an implementation based on a simple loop. #8226 *Stefan Kaes*
1734
1735 * Update UrlWriter to accept :anchor parameter. Closes #6771. *Chris McGrath*
1736
1737 * Added RecordTagHelper for using RecordIdentifier conventions on divs and other container elements [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1738
1739 <% div_for(post) do %> <div id="post_45" class="post">
1740 <%= post.body %> What a wonderful world!
1741 <% end %> </div>
1742
1743 * Added page[record] accessor to JavaScriptGenerator that relies on RecordIdentifier to find the right dom id [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1744
1745 format.js do
1746 # Calls: new Effect.fade('post_45');
1747 render(:update) { |page| page[post].visual_effect(:fade) }
1748 end
1749
1750 * Added RecordIdentifier to enforce view conventions on records for dom ids, classes, and partial paths *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1751
1752 * Added map.namespace to deal with the common situation of admin sections and the like *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1753
1754 Before:
1755
1756 map.resources :products, :path_prefix => "admin", :controller => "admin/products", :collection => { :inventory => :get }, :member => { :duplicate => :post }
1757 map.resources :tags, :name_prefix => 'admin_product_', :path_prefix => "admin/products/:product_id", :controller => "admin/product_tags"
1758 map.resources :images, :name_prefix => 'admin_product_', :path_prefix => "admin/products/:product_id", :controller => "admin/product_images"
1759 map.resources :variants, :name_prefix => 'admin_product_', :path_prefix => "admin/products/:product_id", :controller => "admin/product_variants"
1760
1761 After:
1762
1763 map.namespace(:admin) do |admin|
1764 admin.resources :products,
1765 :collection => { :inventory => :get },
1766 :member => { :duplicate => :post },
1767 :has_many => [ :tags, :images, :variants ]
1768 end
1769
1770 * Added :name_prefix as standard for nested resources [David Heinemeier Hansson]. WARNING: May be backwards incompatible with your app
1771
1772 Before:
1773
1774 map.resources :emails do |emails|
1775 emails.resources :comments, :name_prefix => "email_"
1776 emails.resources :attachments, :name_prefix => "email_"
1777 end
1778
1779 After:
1780
1781 map.resources :emails do |emails|
1782 emails.resources :comments
1783 emails.resources :attachments
1784 end
1785
1786 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.
1787
1788 * Added :has_many and :has_one for declaring plural and singular resources beneath the current *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1789
1790 Before:
1791
1792 map.resources :notes do |notes|
1793 notes.resources :comments
1794 notes.resources :attachments
1795 notes.resource :author
1796 end
1797
1798 After:
1799
1800 map.resources :notes, :has_many => [ :comments, :attachments ], :has_one => :author
1801
1802 * Added that render :xml will try to call to_xml if it can [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Makes these work:
1803
1804 render :xml => post
1805 render :xml => comments
1806
1807 * 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*
1808
1809 render :xml => post.to_xml, :status => :created, :location => post_url(post)
1810
1811 * Ensure that render_text only adds string content to the body of the response *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1812
1813 * Return the string representation from an Xml Builder when rendering a partial. Closes #5044 *Tim Pope*
1814
1815 * Fixed that parameters from XML should also be presented in a hash with indifferent access *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1816
1817 * 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*
1818
1819 * 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*
1820
1821 * Allow layouts with extension of .html.erb. Closes #8032 *Josh Knowles*
1822
1823 * Change default respond_to templates for xml and rjs formats. *Rick Olson*
1824
1825 * Default xml template goes from #{action_name}.rxml => #{action_name}.xml.builder.
1826 * Default rjs template goes from #{action_name}.rjs => #{action_name}.js.rjs.
1827
1828 You can still specify your old templates:
1829
1830 respond_to do |format|
1831 format.xml do
1832 render :action => "#{action_name}.rxml"
1833 end
1834 end
1835
1836 * 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*
1837
1838 * Fix WSOD when template compilation fails *Rick Olson*
1839
1840 * 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*
1841
1842 * Highlight helper highlights one or many terms in a single pass. *Jeremy Kemper*
1843
1844 * 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*
1845
1846 * Added that FormTagHelper#submit_tag will return to its original state if the submit fails and you're using :disable_with *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1847
1848 * Cleaned up, corrected, and mildly expanded ActionPack documentation. Closes #7190 *Jeremy McAnally*
1849
1850 * Small collection of ActionController documentation cleanups. Closes #7319 *Jeremy McAnally*
1851
1852 * Make sure the route expiry hash is constructed by comparing the to_param-ized values of each hash. *Jamis Buck*
1853
1854 * Allow configuration of the default action cache path for #caches_action calls. *Rick Olson*
1855
1856 class ListsController < ApplicationController
1857 caches_action :index, :cache_path => Proc.new { |controller|
1858 controller.params[:user_id] ?
1859 controller.send(:user_lists_url, c.params[:user_id]) :
1860 controller.send(:lists_url) }
1861 end
1862
1863 * Performance: patch cgi/session/pstore to require digest/md5 once rather than per #initialize. #7583 *Stefan Kaes*
1864
1865 * Cookie session store: ensure that new sessions doesn't reuse data from a deleted session in the same request. *Jeremy Kemper*
1866
1867 * Deprecation: verification with :redirect_to => :named_route shouldn't be deprecated. #7525 *Justin French*
1868
1869 * Cookie session store: raise ArgumentError when :session_key is blank. *Jeremy Kemper*
1870
1871 * 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*
1872
1873 * Consistent public/protected/private visibility for chained methods. #7813 *Dan Manges*
1874
1875 * Prefer MIME constants to strings. #7707 *Dan Kubb*
1876
1877 * 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*
1878
1879 \# Add a #dbman attr_reader for CGI::Session and make CGI::Session::CookieStore#generate_digest public so it's easy to generate digests using the cookie store's secret. [Rick Olson]
1880 * Added Request#url that returns the complete URL used for the request *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1881
1882 * Extract dynamic scaffolding into a plugin. #7700 *Josh Peek*
1883
1884 * Added user/password options for url_for to add http authentication in a URL *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1885
1886 * Fixed that FormTagHelper#text_area_tag should disregard :size option if it's not a string *Brendon Davidson*
1887
1888 * 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*
1889
1890 * session_enabled? works with session :off. #6680 *Jonathan del Strother*
1891
1892 * Added :port and :host handling to UrlRewriter (which unified url_for usage, regardless of whether it's called in view or controller) #7616 *alancfrancis*
1893
1894 * Allow send_file/send_data to use a registered mime type as the :type parameter #7620 *jonathan*
1895
1896 * Allow routing requirements on map.resource(s) #7633 [quixoten]. Example:
1897
1898 map.resources :network_interfaces, :requirements => { :id => /^\d+\.\d+\.\d+\.\d+$/ }
1899
1900 * Cookie session store: empty and unchanged sessions don't write a cookie. *Jeremy Kemper*
1901
1902 * Added helper(:all) as a way to include all helpers from app/helpers/**/*.rb in ApplicationController *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1903
1904 * Integration tests: introduce methods for other HTTP methods. #6353 *caboose*
1905
1906 * Routing: better support for escaped values in route segments. #7544 [Chris
1907 Roos]
1908 * 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*
1909
1910 Example config/environment.rb:
1911 # Use an application-wide secret key and the default SHA1 message digest.
1912 config.action_controller.session = { :secret => "can't touch this" }
1913
1914 # Store a secret key per user and employ a stronger message digest.
1915 config.action_controller.session = {
1916 :digest => 'SHA512',
1917 :secret => Proc.new { User.current.secret_key }
1918 }
1919
1920 * 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.
1921
1922 * Added caching option to AssetTagHelper#stylesheet_link_tag and AssetTagHelper#javascript_include_tag [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
1923
1924 stylesheet_link_tag :all, :cache => true # when ActionController::Base.perform_caching is false =>
1925 <link href="/stylesheets/style1.css" media="screen" rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" />
1926 <link href="/stylesheets/styleB.css" media="screen" rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" />
1927 <link href="/stylesheets/styleX2.css" media="screen" rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" />
1928
1929 stylesheet_link_tag :all, :cache => true # when ActionController::Base.perform_caching is true =>
1930 <link href="/stylesheets/all.css" media="screen" rel="Stylesheet" type="text/css" />
1931
1932 ...when caching is on, all.css is the concatenation of style1.css, styleB.css, and styleX2.css.
1933 Same deal for JavaScripts.
1934
1935 * 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*
1936
1937 * Added default mime type for CSS (Mime::CSS) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1938
1939 * 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*
1940
1941 * Added X-Runtime to all responses with the request run time *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1942
1943 * Add Mime::Type convenience methods to check the current mime type. *Rick Olson*
1944
1945 request.format.html? # => true if Mime::HTML
1946 request.format.jpg? # => true if Mime::JPG
1947
1948 \# ActionController sample usage:
1949 \# the session will be disabled for non html/ajax requests
1950 session :off, :if => Proc.new { |req| !(req.format.html? || req.format.js?) }
1951
1952 * Performance: patch cgi/session to require digest/md5 once rather than per #create_new_id. *Stefan Kaes*
1953
1954 * Add a :url_based_filename => true option to ActionController::Streaming::send_file, which allows URL-based filenames. *Thomas Fuchs*
1955
1956 * Fix that FormTagHelper#submit_tag using :disable_with should trigger the onsubmit handler of its form if available *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1957
1958 * Fix #render_file so that TemplateError is called with the correct params and you don't get the WSOD. *Rick Olson*
1959
1960 * 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
1961 superclass' view_paths. [Rick Olson]
1962 * Allow Controllers to have multiple view_paths instead of a single template_root. Closes #2754 *John Long*
1963
1964 * Add much-needed html-scanner tests. Fixed CDATA parsing bug. *Rick Olson*
1965
1966 * improve error message for Routing for named routes. Closes #7346 *Rob Sanheim*
1967
1968 * Added enhanced docs to routing assertions. Closes #7359 *Rob Sanheim*
1969
1970 * fix form_for example in ActionController::Resources documentation. Closes #7362 *gnarg*
1971
1972 * 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*
1973
1974 * Added FormBuilder#submit as a delegate for FormTagHelper#submit_tag *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1975
1976 * 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*
1977
1978 * Change the query parser to map empty GET params to "" rather than nil. Closes #5694. *Nicholas Seckar*
1979
1980 * date_select and datetime_select take a :default option. #7052 *Nik Wakelin*
1981 date_select "post", "written_on", :default => 3.days.from_now
1982 date_select "credit_card", "bill_due", :default => { :day => 20 }
1983
1984 * select :multiple => true suffixes the attribute name with [] unless already suffixed. #6977 *nik.kakelin, ben, julik*
1985
1986 * Improve routes documentation. #7095 *zackchandler*
1987
1988 * 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*
1989
1990 * Resource member routes require :id, eliminating the ambiguous overlap with collection routes. #7229 *dkubb*
1991
1992 * Remove deprecated assertions. *Jeremy Kemper*
1993
1994 * Change session restoration to allow namespaced models to be autoloaded. Closes #6348. *Nicholas Seckar*
1995
1996 * Fix doubly appearing parameters due to string and symbol mixups. Closes #2551. *Anthony Eden*
1997
1998 * Fix overly greedy rescues when loading helpers. Fixes #6268. *Nicholas Seckar*
1999
2000 * Fixed NumberHelper#number_with_delimiter to use "." always for splitting the original number, not the delimiter parameter #7389 *ceefour*
2001
2002 * Autolinking recognizes trailing and embedded . , : ; #7354 *Jarkko Laine*
2003
2004 * Make TextHelper::auto_link recognize URLs with colons in path correctly, fixes #7268. *imajes*
2005
2006 * Update to script.aculo.us 1.7.0. *Thomas Fuchs*
2007
2008 * Modernize cookie testing code, and increase coverage (Heckle++) #7101 *Kevin Clark*
2009
2010 * Improve Test Coverage for ActionController::Routing::Route#matches_controller_and_action? (Heckle++) #7115 *Kevin Clark*
2011
2012 * Heckling ActionController::Resources::Resource revealed that set_prefixes didn't break when :name_prefix was munged. #7081 *Kevin Clark*

2014 * Fix #distance_of_time_in_words to report accurately against the Duration class. #7114 *eventualbuddha*
2015
2016 * Refactor #form_tag to allow easy extending. *Rick Olson*
2017
2018 * Update to Prototype 1.5.0. *Sam Stephenson*
2019
2020 * RecordInvalid, RecordNotSaved => 422 Unprocessable Entity, StaleObjectError => 409 Conflict. #7097 *dkubb*
2021
2022 * Allow fields_for to be nested inside form_for, so that the name and id get properly constructed *Jamis Buck*
2023
2024 * Allow inGroupsOf and eachSlice to be called through rjs. #7046 *Cody Fauser*
2025
2026 * Allow exempt_from_layout :rhtml. #6742, #7026 *Dan Manges, Squeegy*
2027
2028 * Recognize the .txt extension as Mime::TEXT *Rick Olson*
2029
2030 * Fix parsing of array[] CGI parameters so extra empty values aren't included. #6252 *Nicholas Seckar, aiwilliams, brentrowland*
2031
2032 * link_to_unless_current works with full URLs as well as paths. #6891 *Jarkko Laine, Manfred Stienstra, idrifter*
2033
2034 * Lookup the mime type for #auto_discovery_link_tag in the Mime::Type class. Closes #6941 *Josh Peek*

2036 * Fix bug where nested resources ignore a parent singleton parent's path prefix. Closes #6940 *Dan Kubb*
2037
2038 * Fix no method error with error_messages_on. Closes #6935 *nik.wakelin Koz*
2039
2040 * Slight doc tweak to the ActionView::Helpers::PrototypeHelper#replace docs. Closes #6922 *Steven Bristol*

2047
2048 * [DOCS] fix reference to ActionController::Macros::AutoComplete for #text_field_with_auto_complete. Closes #2578 *Jan Prill*
2049
2050 * Make sure html_document is reset between integration test requests. *ctm*
2051
2052 * 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*
2053
2054 * Routing uses URI escaping for path components and CGI escaping for query parameters. *darix, Jeremy Kemper*
2055
2056 * 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*
2057
2058 * Singleton resources: POST /singleton => create, GET /singleton/new => new. *Jeremy Kemper*
2059
2060 * Use 400 Bad Request status for unrescued ActiveRecord::RecordInvalid exceptions. *Jeremy Kemper*
2061
2062 * Silence log_error deprecation warnings from inspecting deprecated instance variables. *Nate Wiger*
2063
2064 * Only cache GET requests with a 200 OK response. #6514, #6743 *RSL, anamba*
2065
2066 * Add a 'referer' attribute to TestRequest. *Jamis Buck*
2067
2068 * Ensure render :json => ... skips the layout. Closes #6808 *Josh Peek*
2069
2070 * Fix HTML::Node to output double quotes instead of single quotes. Closes #6845 *mitreandy*
2071
2072 * Correctly report which filter halted the chain. #6699 *Martin Emde*
2073
2074 * Fix a bug in Routing where a parameter taken from the path of the current request could not be used as a query parameter for the next. Closes #6752. *Nicholas Seckar*
2075
2076 * Unrescued ActiveRecord::RecordNotFound responds with 404 instead of 500. *Jeremy Kemper*
2077
2078 * Improved auto_link to match more valid urls correctly *Tobias Lütke*
2079
2080 * Add singleton resources. *Rick Olson*
2081
2082 map.resource :account
2083
2084 GET /account
2085 GET /account;edit
2086 UPDATE /account
2087 DELETE /account
2088
2089 * 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*
2090 # application/json response with body 'Element.show({:name: "David"})'
2091 respond_to do |format|
2092 format.json { render :json => { :name => "David" }.to_json, :callback => 'Element.show' }
2093 end
2094
2095 * Makes :discard_year work without breaking multi-attribute parsing in AR. #1260, #3800 *sean@ardismg.com, jmartin@desertflood.com, stephen@touset.org, Bob Silva*
2096
2097 * Adds html id attribute to date helper elements. #1050, #1382 *mortonda@dgrmm.net, David North, Bob Silva*
2098
2099 * Add :index and @auto_index capability to model driven date/time selects. #847, #2655 *moriq, Doug Fales, Bob Silva*
2100
2101 * Add :order to datetime_select, select_datetime, and select_date. #1427 *Timothee Peignier, Patrick Lenz, Bob Silva*
2102
2103 * Added time_select to work with time values in models. Update scaffolding. #2489, #2833 *Justin Palmer, Andre Caum, Bob Silva*
2104
2105 * Added :include_seconds to select_datetime, datetime_select and time_select. #2998 *csn, Bob Silva*
2106
2107 * All date/datetime selects can now accept an array of month names with :use_month_names. Allows for localization. #363 *tomasj, Bob Silva*
2108
2109 * Adds :time_separator to select_time and :date_separator to select_datetime. Preserves BC. #3811 *Bob Silva*
2110
2111 * Added map.root as an alias for map.connect '' *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2112
2113 * 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:
2114
2115 GET /posts/5.xml | request.format => Mime::XML
2116 GET /posts/5.xhtml | request.format => Mime::HTML
2117 GET /posts/5 | request.format => request.accepts.first (usually Mime::HTML for browsers)
2118
2119 * Added the option for extension aliases to mime type registration [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example (already in the default routes):
2120
2121 Mime::Type.register "text/html", :html, %w( application/xhtml+xml ), %w( xhtml )
2122
2123 ...will respond on both .html and .xhtml.
2124
2125 * @response.redirect_url works with 201 Created responses: just return headers['Location'] rather than checking the response status. *Jeremy Kemper*
2126
2127 * Added CSV to Mime::SET so that respond_to csv will work *Cody Fauser*
2128
2129 * Fixed that HEAD should return the proper Content-Length header (that is, actually use @body.size, not just 0) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2130
2131 * 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*
2132
2133 * Update Routing to complain when :controller is not specified by a route. Closes #6669. *Nicholas Seckar*
2134
2135 * Ensure render_to_string cleans up after itself when an exception is raised. #6658 *Rob Sanheim*
2136
2137 * Extract template_changed_since? from compile_template? so plugins may override its behavior for non-file-based templates. #6651 *Jeff Barczewski*
2138
2139 * Update to Prototype and script.aculo.us [5579]. *Thomas Fuchs*
2140

2142
2143 * Update to Prototype 1.5.0_rc2 [5550] which makes it work in Opera again *Thomas Fuchs*
2144
2145 * 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*
2146
2147 * ActionView::Base.erb_variable accessor names the buffer variable used to render templates. Defaults to _erbout; use _buf for erubis. *Rick Olson*
2148

2158
2159 * 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*
2160
2161 * assert_response supports symbolic status codes. #6569 *Kevin Clark*
2162 assert_response :ok
2163 assert_response :not_found

2171
2172 * Fix invalid test fixture exposed by stricter Ruby 1.8.5 multipart parsing. #6524 *Bob Silva*
2173
2174 * Set ActionView::Base.default_form_builder once rather than passing the :builder option to every form or overriding the form helper methods. *Jeremy Kemper*
2175
2176 * Deprecate expire_matched_fragments. Use expire_fragment instead. #6535 *Bob Silva*
2177
2178 * 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*

2187
2188 <% content_tag :div, :class => "strong" %>
2189 Hello world!
2190 <% end %>
2191
2192 Will output:
2193 <div class="strong">Hello world!</div>
2194
2195 * Deprecated UrlHelper#link_to_image and UrlHelper#link_to :post => true #6409 *Bob Silva*
2196
2197 * 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*
2198
2199 * Fixed that setting RAILS_ASSET_ID to "" should not add a trailing slash after assets #6454 *Bob Silva/chrismear*
2200
2201 * Force *_url named routes to show the host in ActionView *Rick Olson*
2202

2205 <%= foo_url %> # host!
2206
2207 * Add support for converting blocks into function arguments to JavaScriptGenerator#call and JavaScriptProxy#call. *Sam Stephenson*

2218
2219 * Fix broken assert_generates when extra keys are being checked. *Jamis Buck*
2220
2221 * Replace KCODE checks with String#chars for truncate. Closes #6385 *Manfred Stienstra*
2222
2223 * 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.*
2224
2225 * Use String#chars in TextHelper::excerpt. Closes #6386 *Manfred Stienstra*
2226
2227 * Install named routes into ActionView::Base instead of proxying them to the view via helper_method. Closes #5932. *Nicholas Seckar*

2234
2235 * 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*
2236
2237 * Rename test assertion to prevent shadowing. Closes #6306. *psross*
2238
2239 * Fixed that NumberHelper#number_to_delimiter should respect precision of higher than two digits #6231 *Philip Hallstrom*

2244
2245 update_page_tag :defer => 'true' { |page| ... }
2246
2247 Gives:
2248
2249 <script defer="true" type="text/javascript">...</script>
2250
2251 Which is needed for dealing with the IE6 DOM when it's not yet fully loaded.
2252
2253 * Fixed that rescue template path shouldn't be hardcoded, then it's easier to hook in your own #6295 *Mike Naberezny*
2254
2255 * Fixed escaping of backslashes in JavaScriptHelper#escape_javascript #6302 *sven@c3d2.de*
2256
2257 * Fixed that some 500 rescues would cause 500's themselves because the response had not yet been generated #6329 *cmselmer*

2260
2261 * Fixed some deprecation warnings in ActionPack *Rick Olson*
2262
2263 * assert_select_rjs decodes escaped unicode chars since the Javascript generators encode them. #6240 *japgolly*
2264
2265 * Deprecation: @cookies, @headers, @request, @response will be removed after 1.2. Use the corresponding method instead. *Jeremy Kemper*
2266
2267 * 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:
2268
2269 head :status => 404 # expands to "404 Not Found"
2270 head :status => :not_found # expands to "404 Not Found"
2271 head :status => :created # expands to "201 Created"
2272
2273 * Add head(options = {}) for responses that have no body. [Jamis Buck]. Examples:
2274
2275 head :status => 404 # return an empty response with a 404 status
2276 head :location => person_path(@person), :status => 201
2277
2278 * Fix bug that kept any before_filter except the first one from being able to halt the before_filter chain. *Rick Olson*
2279
2280 * strip_links is case-insensitive. #6285 *tagoh, Bob Silva*
2281
2282 * Clear the cache of possible controllers whenever Routes are reloaded. *Nicholas Seckar*
2283
2284 * Filters overhaul including meantime filter support using around filters + blocks. #5949 *Martin Emde, Roman Le Negrate, Stefan Kaes, Jeremy Kemper*
2285

2287
2288 * Update CGI process to allow sessions to contain namespaced models. Closes #4638. *dfelstead@site5.com*
2289
2290 * Fix routing to respect user provided requirements and defaults when assigning default routing options (such as :action => 'index'). Closes #5950. *Nicholas Seckar*
2291
2292 * Rescue Errno::ECONNRESET to handle an unexpectedly closed socket connection. Improves SCGI reliability. #3368, #6226 *sdsykes, fhanshaw@vesaria.com*
2293
2294 * Added that respond_to blocks will automatically set the content type to be the same as is requested [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
2295
2296 respond_to do |format|
2297 format.html { render :text => "I'm being sent as text/html" }
2298 format.rss { render :text => "I'm being sent as application/rss+xml" }
2299 format.atom { render :text => "I'm being sent as application/xml", :content_type => Mime::XML }
2300 end
2301
2302 * Added utf-8 as the default charset for all renders. You can change this default using ActionController::Base.default_charset=(encoding) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2303
2304 * Added proper getters and setters for content type and charset [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example of what we used to do:
2305
2306 response.headers["Content-Type"] = "application/atom+xml; charset=utf-8"
2307
2308 ...now:
2309
2310 response.content_type = Mime::ATOM
2311 response.charset = "utf-8"
2312
2313 * Updated prototype.js to 1.5.0_rc1 with latest fixes. *Rick Olson*

2340
2341 * Fix assert_tag so that :content => "foo" does not match substrings, but only exact strings. Use :content => /foo/ to match substrings. #2799 *Eric Hodel*

2348
2349 * 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:
2350
2351 link_to("Hider", nil, :class => "hider_link") { |p| p[:something].hide }
2352
2353 ...can be written like this:

2355 link_to("Hider", :class => "hider_link") { |p| p[:something].hide }
2356

2381
2382 * Integration tests: thoroughly test ActionController::Integration::Session. #6022 *Kevin Clark*
2383 (tests skipped unless you `gem install mocha`)

2414
2415 * Fix send_data documentation typo. #5982 *brad@madriska.com*

2418
2419 * 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*

2444
2445 * Replace Reloadable with Reloadable::Deprecated. *Nicholas Seckar*

2450
2451 * 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*
2452
2453 * Make Routing noisy when an anchor regexp is assigned to a segment. #5674 *François Beausoleil*
2454
2455 * 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*
2456
2457 * Short documentation to mention use of Mime::Type.register. #5710 *choonkeat@gmail.com*

2462
2463 * 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.*
2464
2465 * Restrict Request Method hacking with ?_method to POST requests. *Rick Olson*
2466
2467 * Fix bug when passing multiple options to SimplyRestful, like :new => { :preview => :get, :draft => :get }. *Rick Olson, Josh Susser, Lars Pind*

2517
2518 * Add route_name_path method to generate only the path for a named routes. For example, map.person will add person_path. *Nicholas Seckar*
2519
2520 * Avoid naming collision among compiled view methods. *Jeremy Kemper*
2521
2522 * Fix CGI extensions when they expect string but get nil in Windows. Closes #5276 *Mislav Marohnić*

2534 * Make sure changing the controller from foo/bar to bing/bang does not change relative to foo. *Jamis Buck*
2535
2536 * Escape the path before routing recognition. #3671
2537
2538 * Make sure :id and friends are unescaped properly. #5275 *me@julik.nl*
2539
2540 * Fix documentation for with_routing to reflect new reality. #5281 *rramdas@gmail.com*
2541
2542 * 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*
2543
2544 * Added Mime::TEXT (text/plain) and Mime::ICS (text/calendar) as new default types *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2545
2546 * Added Mime::Type.register(string, symbol, synonyms = []) for adding new custom mime types [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example: Mime::Type.register("image/gif", :gif)
2547
2548 * Added support for Mime objects in render :content_type option [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example: render :text => some_atom, :content_type => Mime::ATOM
2549
2550 * Add :status option to send_data and send_file. Defaults to '200 OK'. #5243 *Manfred Stienstra <m.stienstra@fngtps.com>*
2551
2552 * 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*
2553
2554 map.connect '/foo/:id', :controller => '...', :action => '...'
2555 map.connect '/foo/:id.:format', :controller => '...', :action => '...'
2556 map.connect '/foo/:id', ..., :conditions => { :method => :get }
2557
2558 * Cope with missing content type and length headers. Parse parameters from multipart and urlencoded request bodies only. *Jeremy Kemper*
2559
2560 * Accept multipart PUT parameters. #5235 *guy.naor@famundo.com*
2561
2562 * 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:
2563
2564 class WeblogController < ActionController::Base
2565 def index
2566 @posts = Post.find :all
2567
2568 respond_to do |format|
2569 format.html
2570 format.xml { render :xml => @posts.to_xml }
2571 format.rss { render :action => "feed.rxml" }
2572 end
2573 end
2574 end
2575
2576 \# returns HTML when requested by a browser, since the browser
2577 \# has the HTML mimetype at the top of its priority list
2578 Accept: text/html
2579 GET /weblog
2580
2581 \# returns the XML
2582 Accept: application/xml
2583 GET /weblog
2584
2585 \# returns the HTML
2586 Accept: application/xml
2587 GET /weblog.html
2588
2589 \# returns the XML
2590 Accept: text/html
2591 GET /weblog.xml
2592
2593 All this relies on the fact that you have a route that includes .:format.
2594
2595 * 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*
2596
2597 * 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*
2598
2599 * follow_redirect doesn't complain about being redirected to the same controller. #5153 *dymo@mk.ukrtelecom.ua*
2600
2601 * Add layout attribute to response object with the name of the layout that was rendered, or nil if none rendered. *Kevin Clark*
2602
2603 * Fix NoMethodError when parsing params like &&. *Adam Greenfield*
2604
2605 * Fix flip flopped logic in docs for url_for's :only_path option. Closes #4998. *esad@esse.at*
2606
2607 * form.text_area handles the :size option just like the original text_area (:size => '60x10' becomes cols="60" rows="10"). *Jeremy Kemper*
2608
2609 * Excise ingrown code from FormOptionsHelper#options_for_select. #5008 *anonymous*
2610
2611 * Small fix in routing to allow dynamic routes (broken after [4242]) *Rick Olson*
2612
2613 map.connect '*path', :controller => 'files', :action => 'show'
2614
2615 * Replace alias method chaining with Module#alias_method_chain. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
2616
2617 * Replace Ruby's deprecated append_features in favor of included. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
2618
2619 * Use #flush between switching from #write to #syswrite. Closes #4907. *Blair Zajac <blair@orcaware.com>*
2620
2621 * Documentation fix: integration test scripts don't require integration_test. Closes #4914. *Frederick Ros <sl33p3r@free.fr>*
2622
2623 * ActionController::Base Summary documentation rewrite. Closes #4900. *Kevin Clark*
2624

2626
2627 * Fixes bad rendering of JavaScriptMacrosHelper rdoc (closes #4910) *Frederick Ros*
2628

2630
2631 error_messages_for :account, :user, :subscription, :object_name => :account
2632
2633 * Enhance documentation for setting headers in integration tests. Skip auto HTTP prepending when its already there. Closes #4079. *Rick Olson*
2634
2635 * Documentation for AbstractRequest. Closes #4895. *Kevin Clark*
2636
2637 * Refactor various InstanceTag instance method to class methods. Closes #4800. *Stefan Kaes*
2638
2639 * Remove all remaining references to @params in the documentation. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
2640
2641 * Add documentation for redirect_to :back's RedirectBackError exception. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
2642
2643 * Update layout and content_for documentation to use yield rather than magic @content_for instance variables. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
2644
2645 * Fix assert_redirected_to tests according to real-world usage. Also, don't fail if you add an extra :controller option: *Rick Olson*
2646
2647 redirect_to :action => 'new'
2648 assert_redirected_to :controller => 'monkeys', :action => 'new'
2649
2650 * Cache CgiRequest#request_parameters so that multiple calls don't re-parse multipart data. *Rick Olson*
2651
2652 * Diff compared routing options. Allow #assert_recognizes to take a second arg as a hash to specify optional request method *Rick Olson*
2653
2654 assert_recognizes({:controller => 'users', :action => 'index'}, 'users')
2655 assert_recognizes({:controller => 'users', :action => 'create'}, {:path => 'users', :method => :post})
2656
2657 * Diff compared options with #assert_redirected_to *Rick Olson*
2658
2659 * Add support in routes for semicolon delimited "subpaths", like /books/:id;:action *Jamis Buck*
2660
2661 * 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*
2662
2663 * 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*
2664
2665 * 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*
2666
2667 * 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*
2668 ex. verify :only => :speak, :method => :post,
2669 :render => { :status => 405, :text => "Must be post" },
2670 :add_headers => { "Allow" => "POST" }
2671
2672 * 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*
2673
2674
2675 ## 1.13.3 (March 12th, 2007) ##
2676
2677 * Apply [5709] to stable.
2678
2679 * session_enabled? works with session :off. #6680 *Jonathan del Strother*
2680
2681 * Performance: patch cgi/session to require digest/md5 once rather than per #create_new_id. *Stefan Kaes*
2682
2683
2684 ## 1.13.2 (February 5th, 2007) ##
2685
2686 * Add much-needed html-scanner tests. Fixed CDATA parsing bug. *Rick Olson*
2687
2688 * improve error message for Routing for named routes. *Rob Sanheim*
2689
2690 * Added enhanced docs to routing assertions. *Rob Sanheim*
2691
2692 * fix form_for example in ActionController::Resources documentation. *gnarg*
2693
2694 * Add singleton resources from trunk *Rick Olson*
2695
2696 * select :multiple => true suffixes the attribute name with [] unless already suffixed. #6977 *nik.kakelin, ben, julik*
2697
2698 * Improve routes documentation. #7095 *zackchandler*
2699
2700 * Resource member routes require :id, eliminating the ambiguous overlap with collection routes. #7229 *dkubb*
2701
2702 * Fixed NumberHelper#number_with_delimiter to use "." always for splitting the original number, not the delimiter parameter #7389 *ceefour*
2703
2704 * Autolinking recognizes trailing and embedded . , : ; #7354 *Jarkko Laine*
2705

2729
2730 * Fix HTML::Node to output double quotes instead of single quotes. Closes #6845 *mitreandy*
2731
2732 * Fix no method error with error_messages_on. Closes #6935 *nik.wakelin Koz*
2733
2734 * Slight doc tweak to the ActionView::Helpers::PrototypeHelper#replace docs. Closes #6922 *Steven Bristol*
2735
2736 * Slight doc tweak to #prepend_filter. Closes #6493 *Jeremy Voorhis*

2741
2742 * [DOCS] fix reference to ActionController::Macros::AutoComplete for #text_field_with_auto_complete. Closes #2578 *Jan Prill*
2743
2744 * Make sure html_document is reset between integration test requests. *ctm*
2745
2746 * 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*
2747
2748 * 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*
2749
2750 * Ensure render :json => ... skips the layout. #6808 *Josh Peek*
2751
2752 * Silence log_error deprecation warnings from inspecting deprecated instance variables. *Nate Wiger*
2753
2754 * Only cache GET requests with a 200 OK response. #6514, #6743 *RSL, anamba*
2755
2756 * Correctly report which filter halted the chain. #6699 *Martin Emde*
2757
2758 * 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*
2759 # application/json response with body 'Element.show({:name: "David"})'
2760 respond_to do |format|
2761 format.json { render :json => { :name => "David" }.to_json, :callback => 'Element.show' }
2762 end
2763
2764 * Makes :discard_year work without breaking multi-attribute parsing in AR. #1260, #3800 *sean@ardismg.com, jmartin@desertflood.com, stephen@touset.org, Bob Silva*
2765
2766 * Adds html id attribute to date helper elements. #1050, #1382 *mortonda@dgrmm.net, David North, Bob Silva*
2767
2768 * Add :index and @auto_index capability to model driven date/time selects. #847, #2655 *moriq, Doug Fales, Bob Silva*
2769
2770 * Add :order to datetime_select, select_datetime, and select_date. #1427 *Timothee Peignier, Patrick Lenz, Bob Silva*
2771
2772 * Added time_select to work with time values in models. Update scaffolding. #2489, #2833 *Justin Palmer, Andre Caum, Bob Silva*
2773
2774 * Added :include_seconds to select_datetime, datetime_select and time_select. #2998 *csn, Bob Silva*
2775
2776 * All date/datetime selects can now accept an array of month names with :use_month_names. Allows for localization. #363 *tomasj, Bob Silva*
2777
2778 * Adds :time_separator to select_time and :date_separator to select_datetime. Preserves BC. #3811 *Bob Silva*
2779
2780 * @response.redirect_url works with 201 Created responses: just return headers['Location'] rather than checking the response status. *Jeremy Kemper*
2781
2782 * Fixed that HEAD should return the proper Content-Length header (that is, actually use @body.size, not just 0) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2783
2784 * 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*
2785
2786
2787 ## 1.13.0 RC1 (r5619, November 22nd, 2006) ##
2788
2789 * Update Routing to complain when :controller is not specified by a route. Closes #6669. *Nicholas Seckar*
2790
2791 * Ensure render_to_string cleans up after itself when an exception is raised. #6658 *rsanheim*
2792
2793 * Update to Prototype and script.aculo.us [5579]. *Sam Stephenson, Thomas Fuchs*
2794
2795 * simple_format helper doesn't choke on nil. #6644 *jerry426*
2796
2797 * 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*
2798
2799 * Deprecate standalone components. *Jeremy Kemper*
2800
2801 * Always clear model associations from session. #4795 *sd@notso.net, andylien@gmail.com*
2802
2803 * Remove JavaScriptLiteral in favor of ActiveSupport::JSON::Variable. *Sam Stephenson*
2804
2805 * Sync ActionController::StatusCodes::STATUS_CODES with http://www.iana.org/assignments/http-status-codes. #6586 *dkubb*
2806
2807 * 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*
2808
2809 * assert_response supports symbolic status codes. #6569 *Kevin Clark*
2810 assert_response :ok
2811 assert_response :not_found
2812 assert_response :forbidden
2813
2814 * Cache parsed query parameters. #6559 *Stefan Kaes*
2815
2816 * Deprecate JavaScriptHelper#update_element_function, which is superseeded by RJS *Thomas Fuchs*
2817
2818 * Fix invalid test fixture exposed by stricter Ruby 1.8.5 multipart parsing. #6524 *Bob Silva*
2819
2820 * Set ActionView::Base.default_form_builder once rather than passing the :builder option to every form or overriding the form helper methods. *Jeremy Kemper*
2821
2822 * Deprecate expire_matched_fragments. Use expire_fragment instead. #6535 *Bob Silva*
2823
2824 * Deprecate start_form_tag and end_form_tag. Use form_tag / '</form>' from now on. *Rick Olson*
2825
2826 * Added block-usage to PrototypeHelper#form_remote_tag, document block-usage of FormTagHelper#form_tag *Rick Olson*
2827
2828 * Add a 0 margin/padding div around the hidden _method input tag that form_tag outputs. *Rick Olson*
2829
2830 * Added block-usage to TagHelper#content_tag [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
2831
2832 <% content_tag :div, :class => "strong" %>
2833 Hello world!
2834 <% end %>
2835
2836 Will output:
2837 <div class="strong">Hello world!</div>
2838
2839 * Deprecated UrlHelper#link_to_image and UrlHelper#link_to :post => true #6409 *Bob Silva*
2840
2841 * 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*
2842
2843 * Fixed that setting RAILS_ASSET_ID to "" should not add a trailing slash after assets #6454 *Bob Silva/chrismear*
2844
2845 * Force *_url named routes to show the host in ActionView *Rick Olson*
2846
2847 <%= url_for ... %> # no host
2848 <%= foo_path %> # no host
2849 <%= foo_url %> # host!
2850
2851 * Add support for converting blocks into function arguments to JavaScriptGenerator#call and JavaScriptProxy#call. *Sam Stephenson*
2852
2853 * Add JavaScriptGenerator#literal for wrapping a string in an object whose #to_json is the string itself. *Sam Stephenson*
2854
2855 * Add <%= escape_once html %> to escape html while leaving any currently escaped entities alone. Fix button_to double-escaping issue. *Rick Olson*
2856
2857 * Fix double-escaped entities, such as &amp;amp;, &amp;#123;, etc. *Rick Olson*
2858
2859 * Fix routing to correctly determine when generation fails. Closes #6300. [psross].
2860
2861 * Fix broken assert_generates when extra keys are being checked. *Jamis Buck*
2862
2863 * Replace KCODE checks with String#chars for truncate. Closes #6385 *Manfred Stienstra*
2864
2865 * 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.*
2866
2867 * Use String#chars in TextHelper::excerpt. Closes #6386 *Manfred Stienstra*
2868
2869 * Fix relative URL root matching problems. *Mark Imbriaco*
2870
2871 * Fix filter skipping in controller subclasses. #5949, #6297, #6299 *Martin Emde*
2872
2873 * 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*
2874
2875 * Rename test assertion to prevent shadowing. Closes #6306. *psross*
2876
2877 * Fixed that NumberHelper#number_to_delimiter should respect precision of higher than two digits #6231 *Philip Hallstrom*
2878
2879 * Fixed that FormHelper#radio_button didn't respect an :id being passed in #6266 *evansj*
2880
2881 * Added an html_options hash parameter to javascript_tag() and update_page_tag() helpers #6311 [tzaharia]. Example:
2882
2883 update_page_tag :defer => 'true' { |page| ... }
2884
2885 Gives:
2886
2887 <script defer="true" type="text/javascript">...</script>
2888
2889 Which is needed for dealing with the IE6 DOM when it's not yet fully loaded.
2890
2891 * Fixed that rescue template path shouldn't be hardcoded, then it's easier to hook in your own #6295 *Mike Naberezny*
2892
2893 * Fixed escaping of backslashes in JavaScriptHelper#escape_javascript #6302 *sven@c3d2.de*
2894
2895 * Fixed that some 500 rescues would cause 500's themselves because the response had not yet been generated #6329 *cmselmer*
2896
2897 * respond_to :html doesn't assume .rhtml. #6281 *Hampton Catlin*
2898
2899 * Fixed some deprecation warnings in ActionPack *Rick Olson*
2900
2901 * assert_select_rjs decodes escaped unicode chars since the Javascript generators encode them. #6240 *japgolly*
2902
2903 * Deprecation: @cookies, @headers, @request, @response will be removed after 1.2. Use the corresponding method instead. *Jeremy Kemper*
2904
2905 * 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:
2906
2907 head :status => 404 # expands to "404 Not Found"
2908 head :status => :not_found # expands to "404 Not Found"
2909 head :status => :created # expands to "201 Created"
2910
2911 * Add head(options = {}) for responses that have no body. [Jamis Buck]. Examples:
2912
2913 head :status => 404 # return an empty response with a 404 status
2914 head :location => person_path(@person), :status => 201
2915
2916 * Fix bug that kept any before_filter except the first one from being able to halt the before_filter chain. *Rick Olson*
2917
2918 * strip_links is case-insensitive. #6285 *tagoh, Bob Silva*
2919
2920 * Clear the cache of possible controllers whenever Routes are reloaded. *Nicholas Seckar*
2921
2922 * Filters overhaul including meantime filter support using around filters + blocks. #5949 *Martin Emde, Roman Le Negrate, Stefan Kaes, Jeremy Kemper*
2923
2924 * Update CGI process to allow sessions to contain namespaced models. Closes #4638. *dfelstead@site5.com*
2925
2926 * Fix routing to respect user provided requirements and defaults when assigning default routing options (such as :action => 'index'). Closes #5950. *Nicholas Seckar*
2927
2928 * Rescue Errno::ECONNRESET to handle an unexpectedly closed socket connection. Improves SCGI reliability. #3368, #6226 *sdsykes, fhanshaw@vesaria.com*
2929
2930 * Added that respond_to blocks will automatically set the content type to be the same as is requested [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
2931
2932 respond_to do |format|
2933 format.html { render :text => "I'm being sent as text/html" }
2934 format.rss { render :text => "I'm being sent as application/rss+xml" }
2935 format.atom { render :text => "I'm being sent as application/xml", :content_type => Mime::XML }
2936 end
2937
2938 * Added utf-8 as the default charset for all renders. You can change this default using ActionController::Base.default_charset=(encoding) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
2939
2940 * Added proper getters and setters for content type and charset [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example of what we used to do:
2941
2942 response.headers["Content-Type"] = "application/atom+xml; charset=utf-8"
2943
2944 ...now:
2945
2946 response.content_type = Mime::ATOM
2947 response.charset = "utf-8"
2948
2949 * Declare file extensions exempt from layouts. #6219 *brandon*
2950 Example: ActionController::Base.exempt_from_layout 'rpdf'
