61 * Module#qualified_const_(defined?|get|set) are analogous to the corresponding methods
62 in the standard API, but accept qualified constant names. *fxn*
63
64 * Added inflection #deconstantize which complements #demodulize. This inflection
65 removes the righmost segment in a qualified constant name. *fxn*

72 Logger.tagged("BCX") { Logger.tagged("Jason") { Logger.info "Stuff" } } # Logs "[BCX] [Jason] Stuff"
73

75
76 * ActiveSupport::OrderedHash is now marked as extractable when using Array#extract_options! *Prem Sichanugrist*
77
78 * Added Array#prepend as an alias for Array#unshift and Array#append as an alias for Array#<< *DHH*
79
80 * The definition of blank string for Ruby 1.9 has been extended to Unicode whitespace.
81 Also, in 1.8 the ideographic space U+3000 is considered to be whitespace. *Akira Matsuda, Damien Mathieu*
82
83 * The inflector understands acronyms. *dlee*

96 * ActiveSupport::BufferedLogger#silence is deprecated. If you want to squelch
97 logs for a certain block, change the log level for that block.
98
99 * ActiveSupport::BufferedLogger#open_log is deprecated. This method should
100 not have been public in the first place.
101
102 * ActiveSupport::BufferedLogger's behavior of automatically creating the
103 directory for your log file is deprecated. Please make sure to create the
104 directory for your log file before instantiating.
105
106 * ActiveSupport::BufferedLogger#auto_flushing is deprecated. Either set the
107 sync level on the underlying file handle like this:
108
109 f = File.open('foo.log', 'w')
110 f.sync = true
111 ActiveSupport::BufferedLogger.new f

159
160 * ActiveSupport::BufferedLogger set log encoding to BINARY, but still use text
161 mode to output portable newlines. *fxn*
162
163 * ActiveSupport::Dependencies now raises NameError if it finds an existing constant in load_missing_constant. This better reflects the nature of the error which is usually caused by calling constantize on a nested constant. *Andrew White*
164
165 * Deprecated ActiveSupport::SecureRandom in favour of SecureRandom from the standard library *Jon Leighton*
166
167 * New reporting method Kernel#quietly. *fxn*

174 posing for pictures.
175
176 * ActiveSupport::Dependencies::ClassCache class has been introduced for
177 holding references to reloadable classes.
178
179 * ActiveSupport::Dependencies::Reference has been refactored to take direct
180 advantage of the new ClassCache.
181
182 * Backports Range#cover? as an alias for Range#include? in Ruby 1.8 *Diego Carrion, fxn*

185
186 * Added before_remove_const callback to ActiveSupport::Dependencies.remove_unloadable_constants! *Andrew White*
187
188 * JSON decoding now uses the multi_json gem which also vendors a json engine called OkJson. The yaml backend has been removed in favor of OkJson as a default engine for 1.8.x, while the built in 1.9.x json implementation will be used by default. *Josh Kalderimis*

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

464 * TimeWithZone#freeze: preload instance variables so that we can actually freeze *Geoff Buesing*
465
466 * Fix Brasilia timezone #1180 *Marcus Derencius, Kane*
467
468 * Time#advance recognizes fractional days and weeks. Deprecate Durations of fractional months and years #970 *Tom Lea*

473
474 This helps with 1.8.7 compatibility and also improves performance for some operations by reducing indirection.
475
476 * TimeWithZone #wday, #yday and #to_date avoid trip through #method_missing *Geoff Buesing*

487
488 * Add Array#in_groups which splits or iterates over the array in specified number of groups. #579. [Adrian Mugnolo] Example:
489
490 a = (1..10).to_a
491 a.in_groups(3) # => [[1, 2, 3, 4], [5, 6, 7, nil], [8, 9, 10, nil]]
492 a.in_groups(3, false) # => [[1, 2, 3, 4], [5, 6, 7], [8, 9, 10]]
493
494 * Fix TimeWithZone unmarshaling: coerce unmarshaled Time instances to utc, because Ruby's marshaling of Time instances doesn't respect the zone *Geoff Buesing*
495
496 * Added Memoizable mixin for caching simple lazy loaded attributes *Josh Peek*
497
498 * Move the test related core_ext stuff out of core_ext so it's only loaded by the test helpers. *Michael Koziarski*

504 end
505
506 'jargon_cnt'.humanize # => 'Jargon count'
507
508 * TimeWithZone: when crossing DST boundary, treat Durations of days, months or years as variable-length, and all other values as absolute length. A time + 24.hours will advance exactly 24 hours, but a time + 1.day will advance 23-25 hours, depending on the day. Ensure consistent behavior across all advancing methods *Geoff Buesing*
509
510 * Added TimeZone #=~, to support matching zones by regex in time_zone_select. #195 *Ernie Miller*
511
512 * Added Array#second through Array#fifth as aliases for Array#[1] through Array#[4] + Array#forty_two as alias for Array[41] *David Heinemeier Hansson*
513

525
526 * Fixed Date#end_of_quarter to not blow up on May 31st [#289 state:resolved] (Danger)
527
528
529 ## 2.1.0 (May 31st, 2008) ##
530
531 * TimeZone#to_s shows offset as GMT instead of UTC, because GMT will be more familiar to end users (see time zone selects used by Windows OS, google.com and yahoo.com.) Reverts [8370] *Geoff Buesing*
532
533 * Hash.from_xml: datetime xml types overflow to Ruby DateTime class when out of range of Time. Adding tests for utc offsets *Geoff Buesing*
534
535 * TimeWithZone #+ and #- : ensure overflow to DateTime with Numeric arg *Geoff Buesing*
536

539 * Remove unused JSON::RESERVED_WORDS, JSON.valid_identifier? and JSON.reserved_word? methods. Resolves #164. *Cheah Chu Yeow*
540
541 * Adding Date.current, which returns Time.zone.today if config.time_zone is set; otherwise returns Date.today *Geoff Buesing*
542
543 * TimeWithZone: date part getter methods (#year #mon #day etc) are defined on class; no longer relying on method_missing *Geoff Buesing*
544
545 * Time.zone.parse return nil for strings with no date information *Geoff Buesing*
546
547 * Time.zone.parse respects offset information in string. Resolves #105. *Scott Fleckenstein, Geoff Buesing*

549 * Added Ruby 1.8 implementation of Process.daemon
550
551 * Duration #since and #ago with no argument (e.g., 5.days.ago) return TimeWithZone when config.time_zone is set. Introducing Time.current, which returns Time.zone.now if config.time_zone is set, otherwise just returns Time.now *Geoff Buesing*
552
553 * Time#since behaves correctly when passed a Duration. Closes #11527 *kemiller*
554
555 * Add #getutc alias for DateTime#utc *Geoff Buesing*
556
557 * Refactor TimeWithZone: don't send #since, #ago, #+, #-, #advance through method_missing *Geoff Buesing*
558
559 * TimeWithZone respects config.active_support.use_standard_json_time_format *Geoff Buesing*
560

572
573 * Add config.active_support.use_standard_json_time_format setting so that Times and Dates export to ISO 8601 dates. *Rick Olson*
574
575 * TZInfo: Removing unneeded TimezoneProxy class *Geoff Buesing*
576
577 * TZInfo: Removing unneeded TimezoneIndexDefinition, since we're not including Indexes::Timezones *Geoff Buesing*
578
579 * Removing unnecessary uses_tzinfo helper from tests, given that TZInfo is now bundled *Geoff Buesing*
580
581 * Bundling abbreviated version of TZInfo gem 0.3.8: only the classes and zone definitions required to support Rails time zone features are included. If a recent version of the full TZInfo gem is installed, this will take precedence over the bundled version *Geoff Buesing*
582
583 * TimeWithZone#marshal_load does zone lookup via Time.get_zone, so that tzinfo/Olson identifiers are handled *Geoff Buesing*
584
585 * Time.zone= accepts TZInfo::Timezone instances and Olson identifiers; wraps result in TimeZone instance *Geoff Buesing*
586
587 * TimeWithZone time conversions don't need to be wrapped in TimeOrDateTime, because TZInfo does this internally *Geoff Buesing*
588
589 * TimeWithZone#usec returns 0 instead of error when DateTime is wrapped *Geoff Buesing*
590
591 * Improve documentation. *Ryan Bigg, Jan De Poorter, Cheah Chu Yeow, Xavier Shay, Jack Danger Canty, Emilio Tagua, Xavier Noria, Sunny Ripert*
592

594
595 * Ensure correct TimeWithZone#to_date *Geoff Buesing*
596
597 * Make TimeWithZone work with tzinfo 0.2.x: use TZInfo::Timezone#zone_identifier alias for #abbreviation, silence warnings on tests. Raise LoadError when TZInfo version is < 0.2 by sniffing for TZInfo::TimeOrDateTime constant. Move all tzinfo-dependent TimeZone tests into uses_tzinfo block *Geoff Buesing*
598
599 * Time, DateTime and TimeWithZone #in_time_zone defaults to Time.zone. Removing now unneeded #in_current_time_zone *Geoff Buesing*
600
601 * TZInfo caches Timezone instances in its own internal hash cache, so TimeZone::MAPPING doesn't need to cache them as well *Geoff Buesing*
602
603 * Adding TimeZone#parse *Geoff Buesing*
604
605 * Adding TimeZone#at and DateTime#to_f *Geoff Buesing*
606
607 * TimeWithZone responds to Ruby 1.9 weekday-named query methods *Geoff Buesing*
608
609 * TimeWithZone caches TZInfo::TimezonePeriod used for time conversion so that it can be reused, and enforces DST rules correctly when instance is created from a local time *Geoff Buesing*
610
611 * Fixed that BufferedLogger should create its own directory if one doesn't already exist #11285 *lotswholetime*
612
613 * Fix Numeric time tests broken by DST change by anchoring them to fixed times instead of Time.now. Anchor TimeZone#now DST test to time specified with Time.at instead of Time.local to work around platform differences with Time.local and DST representation *Geoff Buesing*
614
615 * Removing unneeded #change_time_zone method from Time, DateTime and TimeWithZone *Geoff Buesing*
616
617 * TimeZone #local and #now correctly enforce DST rules *Geoff Buesing*

620
621 * test_time_with_datetime_fallback expects DateTime.local_offset instead of DateTime.now.offset *Geoff Buesing*
622
623 * Adding TimeWithZone #marshal_dump and #marshal_load *Geoff Buesing*
624
625 * Add OrderedHash#to_hash *Josh Peek*

630
631 * Time.=== returns true for TimeWithZone instances *Geoff Buesing*
632
633 * TimeWithZone #+ and #- behave consistently with numeric arguments regardless of whether wrapped time is a Time or DateTime; consistenty answers false to #acts_like?(:date) *Geoff Buesing*
634
635 * Add String#squish and String#squish! to remove consecutive chunks of whitespace. #11123 *Jordi Bunster, Henrik N*
636
637 * Serialize BigDecimals as Floats when using to_yaml. #8746 *Ernesto Jimenez*

639 * Adding TimeWithZone #to_yaml, #to_datetime, #eql? and method aliases for duck-typing compatibility with Time *Geoff Buesing*
640
641 * TimeWithZone #in_time_zone returns +self+ if zone argument is the same as #time_zone *Geoff Buesing*
642
643 * Adding TimeWithZone #to_a, #to_f, #to_i, #httpdate, #rfc2822 *Geoff Buesing*
644
645 * Pruning unneeded TimeWithZone#change_time_zone_to_current *Geoff Buesing*
646
647 * Time#zone=, #in_time_zone and #change_time_zone accept a Duration *Geoff Buesing*
648
649 * Time#in_time_zone handles Time.local instances correctly *Geoff Buesing*

651 * Pruning unneeded Time#change_time_zone_to_current. Enhanced docs to #change_time_zone to explain the difference between this method and #in_time_zone *Geoff Buesing*
652
653 * TimeZone#new method renamed #local; when used with Time.zone, constructor now reads: Time.zone.local() *Geoff Buesing*
654
655 * Added Base64.encode64s to encode values in base64 without the newlines. This makes the values immediately usable as URL parameters or memcache keys without further processing *David Heinemeier Hansson*

657 * Remove :nodoc: entries around the ActiveSupport test/unit assertions. #10946 *dancroak, jamesh*
658
659 * Add Time.zone_default accessor for setting the default time zone. Rails::Configuration.time_zone sets this. #10982 *Geoff Buesing*

664
665 * TimeWithZone#- added, so that #- can handle a Time or TimeWithZone argument correctly *Geoff Buesing*
666
667 * with_timezone test helper renamed with_env_tz, to distinguish between setting ENV['TZ'] and setting Time.zone in tests *Geoff Buesing*
668
669 * Time#- coerces TimeWithZone argument to a Time instance so that difference in seconds can be calculated. Closes #10914 *Geoff Buesing, yyyc514*
670
671 * Adding UTC zone to TimeZone; TimeWithZone no longer has to fake UTC zone with nil *Geoff Buesing*
672
673 * Time.get_zone refactored to private method, given that the encapsulated logic is only useful internally *Geoff Buesing*
674
675 * Time.zone uses thread-local variable for thread safety. Adding Time.use_zone, for overriding Time.zone locally inside a block. Removing unneeded Time.zone_reset! *Geoff Buesing*
676
677 * TimeZone#to_s uses UTC rather than GMT; reapplying change that was undone in [8679]. #1689 *Cheah Chu Yeow*
678
679 * Time.days_in_month defaults to current year if no year is supplied as argument #10799 [Radar], uses Date.gregorian_leap? to determine leap year, and uses constant lookup to determine days in month *Geoff Buesing*
680
681 * Adding Time and DateTime #compare_with_coercion, which layers behavior on #<=> so that any combination of Time, DateTime and ActiveSupport::TimeWithZone instances can be chronologically compared *Geoff Buesing*
682

688
689 * Refactor Time and DateTime #to_formatted_s: use ternary instead of nested if/else *Geoff Buesing*
690

693 * Adding alternate_utc_string option to TimeZone#formatted_offset. Removing unneeded TimeZone#offset. *Geoff Buesing*
694
695 * Introduce ActiveSupport::TimeWithZone, for wrapping Time instances with a TimeZone. Introduce instance methods to Time for creating TimeWithZone instances, and class methods for managing a global time zone. *Geoff Buesing*
696
697 * Replace non-dst-aware TimeZone class with dst-aware class from tzinfo_timezone plugin. TimeZone#adjust and #unadjust are no longer available; tzinfo gem must now be present in order to perform time zone calculations, via #local_to_utc and #utc_to_local methods. *Geoff Buesing*
698
699 * Extract ActiveSupport::Callbacks from Active Record, test case setup and teardown, and ActionController::Dispatcher. #10727 *Josh Peek*
700
701 * Introducing DateTime #utc, #utc? and #utc_offset, for duck-typing compatibility with Time. Closes #10002 *Geoff Buesing*
702
703 * Time#to_json uses Numeric#to_utc_offset_s to output a cross-platform-consistent representation without having to convert to DateTime. References #9750 *Geoff Buesing*
704
705 * Refactor number-to-HH:MM-string conversion logic from TimeZone#formatted_offset to a reusable Numeric#to_utc_offset_s method. *Geoff Buesing*
706
707 * Continue evolution toward ActiveSupport::TestCase. #10679 *Josh Peek*
708
709 * TestCase: introduce declared setup and teardown callbacks. Pass a list of methods and an optional block to call before setup or after teardown. Setup callbacks are run in the order declared; teardown callbacks are run in reverse. *Jeremy Kemper*
710
711 * Added ActiveSupport::Gzip.decompress/compress(source) as an easy wrapper for Zlib *Tobias Lütke*
712
713 * Included MemCache-Client to make the improved ActiveSupport::Cache::MemCacheStore work out of the box *Bob Cottrell, Eric Hodel*

785 * String#to_xs uses Eric Wong's fast_xs extension, if available, for Builder speedup. http://bogomips.org/fast_xs/ *Jeremy Kemper*
786
787 * Introduce BasicObject as Builder::BlankSlate for Ruby 1.9 forward compatibility. *Jeremy Kemper*
788
789 * Unbundle Builder in favor of a gem dependency. *Jeremy Kemper*
790
791 * Disambiguate Time, Date, and DateTime#to_json formatting. #9750 *Geoff Buesing, Cheah Chu Yeow*
792
793 * Hash#to_json takes :only or :except options to specific or omit certain hash keys. Enumerable#to_json passes through its options to each element. #9751 *Cheah Chu Yeow*
794
795 * BufferedLogger#auto_flushing = N flushes the log every N messages. Buffers with an array instead of string. Disabling auto_flushing still flushes when the buffer hits a maximum size, as a failsafe against memory-gobbling. *Jeremy Kemper*
796
797 * Fixed Date#xmlschema for dates outside the range of what can be created with Time #9744 *Geoff Buesing*
798
799 * Fixed that La Paz was included in -25200 and -14400 offsets when it should only be in -14400 #9735 *bermi*

806
807 * BufferedLogger#add converts the message to a string. #9702, #9724 *eigentone, DrMark, Tom Ward*
808
809 * Added ActiveSupport::BufferedLogger as a duck-typing alternative (albeit with no formatter) to the Ruby Logger, which provides a very nice speed bump (inspired by Ezra's buffered logger) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
810
811 * Object#instance_exec produces fewer garbage methods. *Mauricio Fernandez*
812
813 * Decode json strings as Dates/Times if they're using a YAML-compatible format. Closes #9614 *Rick Olson*
814
815 * Fixed cache_page to use the request url instead of the routing options when picking a save path. #8614 *Josh Peek*
816
817 * Object.subclasses_of includes anonymous subclasses. *Jeremy Kemper*
818
819 * Fixed that pluralizing an empty string should return the same empty string, not "s". #7720 *Josh Peek*
820
821 * Added call to inspect on non-string classes for the logger #8533 *Coda Hale*
822
823 * Deprecation: remove deprecated :mday option from Time, Date, and DateTime#change. *Jeremy Kemper*
824
825 * Fix JSON decoder with nested quotes and commas. #9579 *Zach Dennis*
826
827 * Hash#to_xml doesn't double-unescape. #8806 *Ezran*
828
829 * Added Array#rand #9170 [Norbert Crombach]. Examples:
830
831 [].rand # => nil
832 ['a'].rand # => 'a'
833 [1,2,3].rand # => 1 or 2 or 3
834
835 * Deprecation: removed Reloadable. *Jeremy Kemper*
836
837 * Make the utf-handler return the correct value for non-matching regular expressions. Closes #9049 *Manfred Stienstra*
838
839 * Add ljust, rjust and center to utf8-handler. Closes #9165 *Manfred Stienstra*
840
841 * Fix Time#advance bug when trying to advance a year from leap day. Closes #8655 *Geoff Buesing*
842
843 * Add support for []= on ActiveSupport::Multibyte::Chars. Closes #9142. *ewan, Manfred Stienstra*
844
845 * Added Array#extract_options! to encapsulate the pattern of getting an options hash out of a variable number of parameters. #8759 *Norbert Crombach*
846
847 * Let alias_attribute work with attributes with initial capital letters (legacy columns etc). Closes #8596 *mpalmer*
848
849 * Added Hash#except which is the inverse of Hash#slice -- return the hash except the keys that are specified *David Heinemeier Hansson*
850
851 * Added support for pluralization with a different starting letter than the singular version (cow/kine) #4929 *norri_b/Josh Susser*
852
853 * Demote Hash#to_xml to use XmlSimple#xml_in_string so it can't read files or stdin. #8453 *candlerb, Jeremy Kemper*
854
855 * Backport clean_logger changes to support ruby 1.8.2 *Mislav Marohnić*
856
857 * Added proper handling of arrays #8537 *Josh Susser*
858
859 Before:
860 Hash.from_xml '<images></images>'
861 # => {:images => nil}
862
863 Hash.from_xml '<images><image>foo.jpg</image></images>'
864 # => {:images => {:image => "foo.jpg"}}
865
866 Hash.from_xml '<images><image>foo.jpg</image><image>bar.jpg</image></images>'
867 # => {:images => {:image => ["foo.jpg", "bar.jpg"]}}
868
869 After:
870 Hash.from_xml '<images type="array"></images>'
871 # => {:images => []}
872
873 Hash.from_xml '<images type="array"><image>foo.jpg</image></images>'
874 # => {:images => ["foo.jpg"]}
875
876 Hash.from_xml '<images type="array"><image>foo.jpg</image><image>bar.jpg</image></images>'
877 # => {:images => ["foo.jpg", "bar.jpg"]}
878
879 * Improve Time and Date test coverage. #8646 *Josh Peek*
880
881 * Add Date#since, ago, beginning_of_day, and end_of_day. Date + seconds works now. #8575 *Geoff Buesing*
882
883 * String#to_time overflows to DateTime. Add String#to_datetime. #8572 *Geoff Buesing*
884
885 * Date.yesterday and .tomorrow. #8571 *Geoff Buesing*
886
887 * Readable Date and DateTime#inspect. #8570 *Geoff Buesing*
888
889 * Move common DateTime calculations to Date. #8536 *Geoff Buesing*
890
891 * Added Date#change (like Time#change) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
892
893 * DateTime#to_time converts to Time unless out of range. #8512 *Geoff Buesing*
894
895 * Date#to_datetime, #to_s(:rfc822). #8512 *Geoff Buesing*
896
897 * Time durations use since instead of + for accuracy. #8513 *Geoff Buesing*
898
899 * escape <'s and >'s in JSON strings. #8371 *Rick Olson*
900
901 * Inflections: MatrixTest -> MatrixTests instead of MatricesTest. #8496 *jbwiv*
902
903 * Multibyte strings respond_to the String methods they proxy so they can be duck-typed. #6549 *Tuxie*
904
905 * Array#to_xml yields the builder just like Hash and ActiveRecord::Base. #8472 *seth*
906
907 * Date, Time, and DateTime support formatting blocks in addition to strftime strings. Introduce :long_ordinal format, e.g. "February 21st, 2005". #8191 *Coda Hale*
908
909 * Document Object#blank?. #6491 *Chris Mear*
910
911 * Date, Time, and DateTime#to_json. #8399 *wycats*
912
913 * Simplify API of assert_difference by passing in an expression that is evaluated before and after the passed in block. See documenation for examples of new API. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
914
915 * Added assert_difference and assert_no_difference to test/unit assertions *Tobias Lütke*
916
917 * Removed breakpointer and Binding.of_caller in favor of relying on ruby-debug by Kent Sibilev since the breakpointer has been broken since Ruby 1.8.4 and will not be coming back *David Heinemeier Hansson*
918
919 * Added parsing of file type in Hash.xml_in so you can easily do file uploads with base64 from an API *David Heinemeier Hansson*
920
921 <person>
922 <name>David</name>
923 <avatar type="file" name="me.jpg" content_type="image/jpg">R0lGODlhkACZAPUAAM5lcfjrtMQCG=\n</avatar>
924 </person>
925
926 ...becomes:
927
928 attributes = { :person => { :name => "David", :avatar => #<StringIO> } }
929 attributes[:person][:avatar].content_type # => "image/jpg"
930 attributes[:person][:avatar].original_filename # => "me.jpg"
931 attributes[:person][:avatar].read # => binary data of the file
932
933 Which is duck-type compatible with the files that you get when doing multipart uploads through HTML.
934
935 * Improved multibyte performance by relying less on exception raising #8159 *Blaine*
936
937 * Use XSD-compatible type names for Hash#to_xml and make the converters extendable #8047 *Tim Pope*
938
939 * Added yielding of builder in Hash#to_xml *David Heinemeier Hansson*
940
941 * Hash#with_indifferent_access now also converts hashes kept in arrays to indifferent access (makes it easier to treat HTML and XML parameters the same) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
942
943 * Hash#to_xml supports YAML attributes. #7502 *jonathan*
944
945 * Refactor ActiveSupport::JSON to be less obtuse. Add support for JSON decoding by way of Syck with ActiveSupport::JSON.decode(json_string). Prevent hash keys that are JavaScript reserved words from being unquoted during encoding. *Sam Stephenson*
946
947 * alias_method_chain preserves the original method's visibility. #7854 *Jonathan Viney*
948
949 * Update Dependencies to ignore constants inherited from ancestors. Closes #6951. *Nicholas Seckar*
950
951 * Array#to_query preserves its ordering. #7756 *Greg Spurrier*
952

954
955 * DateTime calculations analogous to the Date and Time extensions. #7693 *Geoff Buesing*
956
957 * Give DateTime correct .to_s implementations, lets it play nice with ActiveRecord quoting. #7649 *Geoff Buesing*
958
959 * Add File.atomic_write, allows you to write large files in an atomic manner, preventing users from seeing half written files. *Michael Koziarski*
960
961 * Allow users to provide custom formatters to Logger. *Anthony Eden*
962
963 * Hash#to_query CGI-escapes its keys. *Jeremy Kemper*
964

966
967 * :db format for Date#to_s *Jeremy Kemper*
968 Date.new(2007, 1, 27).to_s(:db) # => '2007-01-27'
969

971
972 * Added Hash#to_query to turn a hash of values into a form-encoded query string *Nicholas Seckar*
973
974 * Increase test coverage for subclasses_of. Closes #7335. *Roman2K, Nicholas Seckar*

981
982 * A couple extra tests for #classify. Closes #7273. *Josh Susser*
983
984 * Better docs for Object extensions *zackchandler, Jamis Buck*
985
986 * Fix that Dates couldn't be subtracted from Dates after [5940]. *Sam Stephenson*
987
988 * Add Object#acts_like? and Time#acts_like_time? and Date#acts_like_date? to facilitate duck-typing. *Jamis Buck*
989
990 * Make 1.months and friends accurate by introducing a Duration class. #6835 *eventualbuddha*
991
992
993 ## 1.4.2 (March 12th, 2007) ##
994
995 * Ruby 1.8.6 and 1.9 define private Time#to_date and #to_datetime; make them
996 public for compatibility. *Jeremy Kemper*
997

1019
1020 * Deprecation: silence warnings when reporting test errors. *Jeremy Kemper*

1073
1074 * alias_method_chain works with accessor= methods also. #6153 *Caio Chassot*
1075
1076 * Fix loadable_constants_for_path to handle load paths that do not end with a slash. *Nicholas Seckar*

1087
1088 <written-on type="date"></written-on> # => { :type => 'date' } # WRONG
1089 <written-on type="date"></written-on> # => nil # RIGHT
1090
1091 * Tighten rescue clauses. #5985 *james@grayproductions.net*
1092
1093 * Inflections: don't singularize -ies plurals. *foamdino@gmail.com, Mark Van Holstyn*
1094
1095 * Update Initializer to use load_once_paths to avoid plugin reloading. References #5852. *Nicholas Seckar*
1096
1097 * Use Array#assoc in ActiveSupport::OrderedHash. *Mauricio Fernandez*
1098
1099 * Greatly increased performance of String.to_json, which speeds up RJS considerably on large pages, fixes #3473 *Shugo Maeda*
1100
1101 * Detect missing_constants calls from removed modules and fail accordingly. *Nicholas Seckar*
1102
1103 * Stop using defined? in Dependencies.qualified_const_defined? since defined? may invoke const_missing. *Nicholas Seckar*
1104
1105 * Dependencies can autoload directories of nested classes. *Jeremy Kemper*
1106 Example:
1107 invoice.rb class Invoice
1108 invoice/lineitem.rb class Invoice::Lineitem
1109
1110 * Add Deprecation.silence so that Reloadable does not scold itself. *Nicholas Seckar*
1111
1112 * Add debugging logging to Dependencies. Currently can be enabled with Dependencies.log_activity = true; adding to Initializer and documenting is forthcoming. *Nicholas Seckar*
1113
1114 * Replace Reloadable with improvements to the Dependencies mechanism. *Nicholas Seckar*
1115
1116 * DateTime#to_time gives hour/minute/second resolution. #5747 *jon.evans@pobox.com*
1117
1118 * attr_internal to support namespacing and deprecation. Like attr_* except backed by internally-named instance variable. Set attr_internal_naming_format to change the format from the default '@_%s'. *Jeremy Kemper*
1119 # def foo() @foo__rofl end
1120 # def foo=(v) @foo__rofl = v end
1121 self.attr_internal_naming_format = '@%s__rofl'
1122 attr_internal :foo
1123
1124 * Raise fully qualified names upon name errors. #5533 *Lars Pind, Nicholas Seckar*
1125
1126 * Add extention to obtain the missing constant from NameError instances. *Nicholas Seckar*
1127
1128 * Thoroughly document inflections. #5700 *petermichaux@gmail.com*
1129
1130 * Added Module#alias_attribute [Jamis/David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1131
1132 class Content < ActiveRecord::Base
1133 # has a title attribute
1134 end
1135
1136 class Email < ActiveRecord::Base
1137 alias_attribute :subject, :title
1138 end
1139
1140 e = Email.find(1)
1141 e.title # => "Superstars"
1142 e.subject # => "Superstars"
1143 e.subject? # => true
1144 e.subject = "Megastars"
1145 e.title # => "Megastars"
1146
1147 * Deprecation: easier to work with warning behavior as procs; default behaviors for each environment so users needn't update env.rb; and testing pleasure with assert_deprecated, assert_not_deprecated. *Jeremy Kemper*
1148 By default, test prints to $stderr, dev logs, production ignores.
1149 Provide your own per-environment in e.g. config/environments/development.rb:
1150 ActiveSupport::Deprecation.behavior = Proc.new { |message| raise message }
1151
1152 * First cut of the Rails Deprecation system. *Michael Koziarski*
1153
1154 * Strip boolean XML content before checking for 'true' *Rick Olson*
1155
1156 * Customize default BigDecimal formatting. References #5672 *Dave Thomas*
1157
1158 * Correctly convert <foo nil="true"> to nil when using Hash.create_from_xml. *Rick Olson*
1159
1160 * Optional identity for Enumerable#sum defaults to zero. #5657 *gensym@mac.com*
1161
1162 * HashWithIndifferentAccess shouldn't confuse false and nil. #5601 *Shugo Maeda*
1163
1164 * Fixed HashWithIndifferentAccess#default #5586 *chris@seagul.co.uk*
1165
1166 * More compatible Hash.create_from_xml. #5523 *nunemaker@gmail.com*
1167
1168 * Added Enumerable#sum for calculating a sum from the elements [David Heinemeier Hansson, jonathan@daikini.com]. Examples:
1169
1170 [1, 2, 3].sum
1171 payments.sum { |p| p.price * p.tax_rate }
1172 payments.sum(&:price)
1173
1174 This is instead of payments.inject(0) { |sum, p| sum + p.price }
1175
1176 * Correct and clarify Array#to_sentence docs. #5458 *brad@madriska.com*
1177
1178 * alias_method_chain preserves method punctuation so foo, foo?, and foo! may be chained with the same feature. *Jeremy Kemper*
1179 Example:
1180 alias_method_chain :save!, :validation
1181 is equivalent to
1182 alias_method :save_without_validation!, :save!
1183 alias_method :save!, :save_with_validation!
1184
1185 * Enhance Symbol#to_proc so it works with list objects, such as multi-dimensional arrays. Closes #5295 [nov@yo.rim.or.jp]. Example:
1186
1187 {1 => "one", 2 => "two", 3 => "three"}.sort_by(&:first).map(&:last)
1188 # => ["one", "two", "three"]
1189
1190 * Added Hash.create_from_xml(string) which will create a hash from a XML string and even typecast if possible [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1191
1192 Hash.create_from_xml <<-EOT
1193 <note>
1194 <title>This is a note</title>
1195 <created-at type="date">2004-10-10</created-at>
1196 </note>
1197 EOT
1198
1199 ...would return:
1200
1201 { :note => { :title => "This is a note", :created_at => Date.new(2004, 10, 10) } }
1202
1203 * Added Jim Weirich's excellent FlexMock class to vendor (Copyright 2003, 2004 by Jim Weirich (jim@weriichhouse.org)) -- it's not automatically required, though, so require 'flexmock' is still necessary *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1204
1205 * Fixed that Module#alias_method_chain should work with both foo? foo! and foo at the same time #4954 *anna@wota.jp*
1206
1207 * to_xml fixes, features, and speedup: introduce :dasherize option that converts updated_at to updated-at if true (the existing default); binary columns get encoding="base64" attribute; nil values get nil="true" attribute to distinguish empty values; add type information for float columns; allow arbitrarily deep :include; include SQL type information as the type attribute. #4989 *Blair Zajac <blair@orcaware.com>*
1208
1209 * Add OrderedHash#values. *Sam Stephenson*
1210
1211 * Added Array#to_s(:db) that'll produce a comma-separated list of ids [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1212
1213 Purchase.find(:all, :conditions => "product_id IN (#{shops.products.to_s(:db)})"
1214
1215 * Normalize classify's argument to a String so that it plays nice with Symbols. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
1216
1217 * Strip out leading schema name in classify. References #5139. *Michael Schoen*
1218
1219 * Remove Enumerable#first_match since break(value) handles the use case well enough. *Nicholas Seckar*
1220
1221 Enumerable#first_match was like detect, but instead of returning the matching element, the yielded value returned. For example:
1222
1223 user_xml = adapters(:from => User, :to => Xml).first_match do |adapter|
1224 adapter.adapt @user
1225 end
1226
1227 But this is just as easily done with:
1228
1229 user_xml = adapters(:from => User, :to => Xml).each do
1230 break adapter.adapt(@user)
1231 end
1232
1233 * Make Array#in_groups_of just return the grouped collection if a block isn't given. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
1234
1235 * Don't destroy a HashWithIndifferentAccess if symbolize_keys! or stringify_keys! is called on it. Closes #5076. *Marcel Molina Jr., guy.naor@famundo.com*
1236
1237 * Document Module::delegate. #5002 *pergesu@gmail.com*
1238
1239 * Replace alias method chaining with Module#alias_method_chain. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
1240
1241 * Strip out punctuation on predicates or bang methods being aliased with alias_method_chain since target?_without_feature is not a valid method name. Add tests for Module#alias_method_chain. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
1242
1243 * Replace Ruby's deprecated append_features in favor of included. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
1244
1245 * Allow default options in with_options to be overridden. Closes #4480. *murphy@cYcnus.de*
1246
1247 * Added Module#alias_method_chain *Jamis Buck*
1248
1249 * Updated to Builder 2.0 *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1250
1251 * Add Array#split for dividing arrays into one or more subarrays by value or block. *Sam Stephenson*
1252
1253 ## 1.3.1 (April 6th, 2006) ##
1254
1255 * Clean paths inside of exception messages and traces. *Nicholas Seckar*
1256
1257 * Add Pathname.clean_within for cleaning all the paths inside of a string. *Nicholas Seckar*
1258
1259 * provide an empty Dependencies::LoadingModule.load which prints deprecation warnings. Lets 1.0 applications function with .13-style environment.rb.
1260
1261
1262 ## 1.3.0 (March 27th, 2006) ##
1263
1264 * When possible, avoid incorrectly obtaining constants from parent modules. Fixes #4221. *Nicholas Seckar*
1265
1266 * Add more tests for dependencies; refactor existing cases. *Nicholas Seckar*
1267
1268 * Move Module#parent and Module#as_load_path into core_ext. Add Module#parent. *Nicholas Seckar*
1269
1270 * Add CachingTools::HashCaching to simplify the creation of nested, autofilling hashes. *Nicholas Seckar*
1271
1272 * Remove a hack intended to avoid unloading the same class twice, but which would not work anyways. *Nicholas Seckar*
1273
1274 * Update Object.subclasses_of to locate nested classes. This affects Object.remove_subclasses_of in that nested classes will now be unloaded. *Nicholas Seckar*
1275
1276 * Update Object.remove_subclasses_of to use Class.remove_class, reducing duplication. *Nicholas Seckar*
1277
1278 * Added Fixnum#seconds for consistency, so you can say 5.minutes + 30.seconds instead of 5.minutes + 30 #4389 *François Beausoleil*
1279
1280 * Added option to String#camelize to generate lower-cased camel case by passing in :lower, like "super_man".camelize(:lower) # => "superMan" *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1281
1282 * Added Hash#diff to show the difference between two hashes *Chris McGrath*
1283
1284 * Added Time#advance to do precise time time calculations for cases where a month being approximated to 30 days won't do #1860 *Rick Olson*
1285
1286 * Enhance Inflector.underscore to convert '-' into '_' (as the inverse of Inflector.dasherize) *Jamis Buck*
1287
1288 * Switched to_xml to use the xml schema format for datetimes. This allows the encoding of time zones and should improve operability. *Michael Koziarski*
1289
1290 * Added a note to the documentation for the Date related Numeric extensions to indicate that they're
1291 approximations and shouldn't be used for critical calculations. *Michael Koziarski*
1292
1293 * Added Hash#to_xml and Array#to_xml that makes it much easier to produce XML from basic structures [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:
1294
1295 { :name => "David", :street_name => "Paulina", :age => 26, :moved_on => Date.new(2005, 11, 15) }.to_xml
1296
1297 ...returns:
1298
1299 <person>
1300 <street-name>Paulina</street-name>
1301 <name>David</name>
1302 <age type="integer">26</age>
1303 <moved-on type="date">2005-11-15</moved-on>
1304 </person>
1305
1306 * Moved Jim Weirich's wonderful Builder from Action Pack to Active Support (it's simply too useful to be stuck in AP) *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1307
1308 * Fixed that Array#to_sentence will return "" on an empty array instead of ", and" #3842, #4031 *rubyonrails@beautifulpixel.com*
1309
1310 * Add Enumerable#group_by for grouping collections based on the result of some
1311 block. Useful, for example, for grouping records by date.
1312
1313 ex.
1314
1315 latest_transcripts.group_by(&:day).each do |day, transcripts|
1316 p "#{day} -> #{transcripts.map(&:class) * ', '}"
1317 end
1318 "2006-03-01 -> Transcript"
1319 "2006-02-28 -> Transcript"
1320 "2006-02-27 -> Transcript, Transcript"
1321 "2006-02-26 -> Transcript, Transcript"
1322
1323 Add Array#in_groups_of, for iterating over an array in groups of a certain
1324 size.
1325
1326 ex.
1327
1328 %w(1 2 3 4 5 6 7).in_groups_of(3) {|g| p g}
1329 ["1", "2", "3"]
1330 ["4", "5", "6"]
1331 ["7", nil, nil]
1332
1333 *Marcel Molina Jr., Sam Stephenson*
1334
1335 * Added Kernel#daemonize to turn the current process into a daemon that can be killed with a TERM signal *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1336
1337 * Add 'around' methods to Logger, to make it easy to log before and after messages for a given block as requested in #3809. [Michael Koziarski] Example:
1338
1339 logger.around_info("Start rendering component (#{options.inspect}): ",
1340 "\n\nEnd of component rendering") { yield }
1341
1342 * Added Time#beginning_of_quarter #3607 *cohen.jeff@gmail.com*
1343
1344 * Fix Object.subclasses_of to only return currently defined objects *Jonathan Viney <jonathan@bluewire.net.nz>*
1345
1346 * Fix constantize to properly handle names beginning with '::'. *Nicholas Seckar*
1347
1348 * Make String#last return the string instead of nil when it is shorter than the limit [Scott Barron].
1349
1350 * Added delegation support to Module that allows multiple delegations at once (unlike Forwardable in the stdlib) [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Example:
1351
1352 class Account < ActiveRecord::Base
1353 has_one :subscription
1354 delegate :free?, :paying?, :to => :subscription
1355 delegate :overdue?, :to => "subscription.last_payment"
1356 end
1357
1358 account.free? # => account.subscription.free?
1359 account.overdue? # => account.subscription.last_payment.overdue?
1360
1361 * Fix Reloadable to handle the case where a class that has been 'removed' has not yet been garbage collected. *Nicholas Seckar*
1362
1363 * Don't allow Reloadable to be included into Modules.
1364
1365 * Remove LoadingModule. *Nicholas Seckar*
1366
1367 * Add documentation for Reloadable::Subclasses. *Nicholas Seckar*
1368
1369 * Add Reloadable::Subclasses which handles the common case where a base class should not be reloaded, but its subclasses should be. *Nicholas Seckar*
1370
1371 * Further improvements to reloading code *Nicholas Seckar, Trevor Squires*
1372
1373 - All classes/modules which include Reloadable can define reloadable? for fine grained control of reloading
1374 - Class.remove_class uses Module#parent to access the parent module
1375 - Class.remove_class expanded to handle multiple classes in a single call
1376 - LoadingModule.clear! has been removed as it is no longer required
1377 - Module#remove_classes_including has been removed in favor of Reloadable.reloadable_classes
1378
1379 * Added reusable reloading support through the inclusion of the Relodable module that all subclasses of ActiveRecord::Base, ActiveRecord::Observer, ActiveController::Base, and ActionMailer::Base automatically gets. This means that these classes will be reloaded by the dispatcher when Dependencies.mechanism = :load. You can make your own models reloadable easily:
1380
1381 class Setting
1382 include Reloadable
1383 end
1384
1385 Reloading a class is done by removing its constant which will cause it to be loaded again on the next reference. *David Heinemeier Hansson*
1386
1387 * Added auto-loading support for classes in modules, so Conductor::Migration will look for conductor/migration.rb and Conductor::Database::Settings will look for conductor/database/settings.rb *Nicholas Seckar*
1388
1389 * Add Object#instance_exec, like instance_eval but passes its arguments to the block. (Active Support will not override the Ruby 1.9 implementation of this method.) *Sam Stephenson*
1390
1391 * Add Proc#bind(object) for changing a proc or block's self by returning a Method bound to the given object. Based on why the lucky stiff's "cloaker" method. *Sam Stephenson*
1392
1393 * Fix merge and dup for hashes with indifferent access #3404 *Ken Miller*
1394
1395 * Fix the requires in option_merger_test to unbreak AS tests. *Sam Stephenson*
1396
1397 * Make HashWithIndifferentAccess#update behave like Hash#update by returning the hash. #3419, #3425 *asnem@student.ethz.ch, JanPrill@blauton.de, Marcel Molina Jr.*
1398
1399 * Add ActiveSupport::JSON and Object#to_json for converting Ruby objects to JSON strings. *Sam Stephenson*
1400
1401 * Add Object#with_options for DRYing up multiple calls to methods having shared options. [Sam Stephenson] Example:
1402
1403 ActionController::Routing::Routes.draw do |map|
1404 # Account routes
1405 map.with_options(:controller => 'account') do |account|
1406 account.home '', :action => 'dashboard'
1407 account.signup 'signup', :action => 'new'
1408 account.logout 'logout', :action => 'logout'
1409 end
1410 end
1411
1412 * Introduce Dependencies.warnings_on_first_load setting. If true, enables warnings on first load of a require_dependency. Otherwise, loads without warnings. Disabled (set to false) by default. *Jeremy Kemper*
1413
1414 * Active Support is warnings-safe. #1792 *Eric Hodel*
1415
1416 * Introduce enable_warnings counterpart to silence_warnings. Turn warnings on when loading a file for the first time if Dependencies.mechanism == :load. Common mistakes such as redefined methods will print warnings to stderr. *Jeremy Kemper*
1417
1418 * Add Symbol#to_proc, which allows for, e.g. [:foo, :bar].map(&:to_s). *Marcel Molina Jr.*
1419
1420 * Added the following methods [Marcel Molina Jr., Sam Stephenson]:
1421 * Object#copy_instance_variables_from(object) to copy instance variables from one object to another
1422 * Object#extended_by to get an instance's included/extended modules
1423 * Object#extend_with_included_modules_from(object) to extend an instance with the modules from another instance
1424
1425 ## 1.2.5 (December 13th, 2005) ##
1426
1427 * Become part of Rails 1.0
1428
1429 * Rename Version constant to VERSION. #2802 *Marcel Molina Jr.*
1430
1431 ## 1.2.3 (November 7th, 2005) ##
1432
1433 * Change Inflector#constantize to use eval instead of const_get. *Nicholas Seckar*
1434
1435 * Fix const_missing handler to ignore the trailing '.rb' on files when comparing paths. *Nicholas Seckar*
1436
1437 * Define kernel.rb methods in "class Object" instead of "module Kernel" to work around a Windows peculiarity *Sam Stephenson*
1438
1439 * Fix broken tests caused by incomplete loading of active support. *Nicholas Seckar*
1440
1441 * Fix status pluralization bug so status_codes doesn't get pluralized as statuses_code. #2758 *keithm@infused.org*
1442
1443 * Added Kernel#silence_stderr to silence stderr for the duration of the given block *Sam Stephenson*
1444
1445 * Changed Kernel#` to print a message to stderr (like Unix) instead of raising Errno::ENOENT on Win32 *Sam Stephenson*
1446
1447 * Changed 0.blank? to false rather than true since it violates everyone's expectation of blankness. #2518, #2705 *rails@jeffcole.net*
1448
1449 * When loading classes using const_missing, raise a NameError if and only if the file we tried to load was not present. *Nicholas Seckar*
1450
1451 * Added petabytes and exebytes to numeric extensions #2397 *timct@mac.com*
1452
1453 * Added Time#end_of_month to accompany Time#beginning_of_month #2514 *Jens-Christian Fischer*
1454
1455
1456 ## 1.2.2 (October 26th, 2005) ##
1457
1458 * Set Logger.silencer = false to disable Logger#silence. Useful for debugging fixtures.
1459
1460 * Add title case method to String to do, e.g., 'action_web_service'.titlecase # => 'Action Web Service'. *Marcel Molina Jr.*
1461
1462
1463 ## 1.2.1 (October 19th, 2005) ##
1464
1465 * Classify generated routing code as framework code to avoid appearing in application traces. *Nicholas Seckar*
1466
1467 * Show all framework frames in the framework trace. *Nicholas Seckar*
1468
1469
1470 ## 1.2.0 (October 16th, 2005) ##
1471
1472 * Update Exception extension to show the first few framework frames in an application trace. *Nicholas Seckar*
1473
1474 * Added Exception extension to provide support for clean backtraces. *Nicholas Seckar*
1475
1476 * Updated whiny nil to be more concise and useful. *Nicholas Seckar*
1477
1478 * Added Enumerable#first_match *Nicholas Seckar*
1479
1480 * Fixed that Time#change should also reset usec when also resetting minutes #2459 *ikeda@dream.big.or.jp*
1481
1482 * Fix Logger compatibility for distributions that don't keep Ruby and its standard library in sync.
1483
1484 * Replace '%e' from long and short time formats as Windows does not support it. #2344. *Tom Ward <tom@popdog.net>*
1485
1486 * Added to_s(:db) to Range, so you can get "BETWEEN '2005-12-10' AND '2005-12-12'" from Date.new(2005, 12, 10)..Date.new(2005, 12, 12) (and likewise with Times)
1487
1488 * Moved require_library_or_gem into Kernel. #1992 *Michael Schuerig <michael@schuerig.de>*
1489
1490 * Add :rfc822 as an option for Time#to_s (to get rfc822-formatted times)
1491
1492 * Chain the const_missing hook to any previously existing hook so rails can play nicely with rake
1493
1494 * Clean logger is compatible with both 1.8.2 and 1.8.3 Logger. #2263 *Michael Schuerig <michael@schuerig.de>*
1495
1496 * Added native, faster implementations of .blank? for the core types #2286 *skae*
1497
1498 * Fixed clean logger to work with Ruby 1.8.3 Logger class #2245
1499
1500 * Fixed memory leak with Active Record classes when Dependencies.mechanism = :load #1704 *Chris McGrath*
1501
1502 * Fixed Inflector.underscore for use with acronyms, so HTML becomes html instead of htm_l #2173 *k@v2studio.com*
1503
1504 * Fixed dependencies related infinite recursion bug when a controller file does not contain a controller class. Closes #1760. *rcolli2@tampabay.rr.com*
1505
1506 * Fixed inflections for status, quiz, move #2056 *deirdre@deirdre.net*
1507
1508 * Added Hash#reverse_merge, Hash#reverse_merge!, and Hash#reverse_update to ease the use of default options
1509
1510 * Added Array#to_sentence that'll turn ['one', 'two', 'three'] into "one, two, and three" #2157 *Manfred Stienstra*
1511
1512 * Added Kernel#silence_warnings to turn off warnings temporarily for the passed block
1513
1514 * Added String#starts_with? and String#ends_with? #2118 *Thijs van der Vossen*
1515
1516 * Added easy extendability to the inflector through Inflector.inflections (using the Inflector::Inflections singleton class). Examples:
1517
1518 Inflector.inflections do |inflect|
1519 inflect.plural /^(ox)$/i, '\1\2en'
1520 inflect.singular /^(ox)en/i, '\1'
1521
1522 inflect.irregular 'octopus', 'octopi'
1523
1524 inflect.uncountable "equipment"
1525 end
1526
1527 * Added String#at, String#from, String#to, String#first, String#last in ActiveSupport::CoreExtensions::String::Access to ease access to individual characters and substrings in a string serving basically as human names for range access.
1528
1529 * Make Time#last_month work when invoked on the 31st of a month.
1530
1531 * Add Time.days_in_month, and make Time#next_month work when invoked on the 31st of a month
1532
1533 * Fixed that Time#midnight would have a non-zero usec on some platforms #1836
1534
1535 * Fixed inflections of "index/indices" #1766 *damn_pepe@gmail.com*
1536
1537 * Added stripping of _id to String#humanize, so "employee_id" becomes "Employee" #1574 *Justin French*
1538
1539 * Factor Fixnum and Bignum extensions into Integer extensions *Nicholas Seckar*
1540
1541 * Hooked #ordinalize into Fixnum and Bignum classes. *Nicholas Seckar, danp*
1542
1543 * Added Fixnum#ordinalize to turn 1.ordinalize to "1st", 3.ordinalize to "3rd", and 10.ordinalize to "10th" and so on #1724 *paul@cnt.org*
1544
1545
1546 ## 1.1.1 (11 July, 2005) ##
1547
1548 * Added more efficient implementation of the development mode reset of classes #1638 *Chris McGrath*
1549
1550
1551 ## 1.1.0 (6 July, 2005) ##
1552
1553 * Fixed conflict with Glue gem #1606 *Rick Olson*
1554
1555 * Added new rules to the Inflector to deal with more unusual plurals mouse/louse => mice/lice, information => information, ox => oxen, virus => viri, archive => archives #1571, #1583, #1490, #1599, #1608 *foamdino@gmail.com/others*
1556
1557 * Fixed memory leak with Object#remove_subclasses_of, which inflicted a Rails application running in development mode with a ~20KB leak per request #1289 *Chris McGrath*
1558
1559 * Made 1.year == 365.25.days to account for leap years. This allows you to do User.find(:all, :conditions => ['birthday > ?', 50.years.ago]) without losing a lot of days. #1488 *tuxie@dekadance.se*
1560
1561 * Added an exception if calling id on nil to WhinyNil #584 *kevin-temp@writesoon.com*
1562
1563 * Added Fix/Bignum#multiple_of? which returns true on 14.multiple_of?(7) and false on 16.multiple_of?(7) #1464 *Thomas Fuchs*
1564
1565 * Added even? and odd? to work with Bignums in addition to Fixnums #1464 *Thomas Fuchs*
1566
1567 * Fixed Time#at_beginning_of_week returned the next Monday instead of the previous one when called on a Sunday #1403 *jean.helou@gmail.com*
1568
1569 * Increased the speed of indifferent hash access by using Hash#default. #1436 *Nicholas Seckar*
1570
1571 * Added that " " is now also blank? (using strip if available)
1572
1573 * Fixed Dependencies so all modules are able to load missing constants #1173 *Nicholas Seckar*
1574
1575 * Fixed the Inflector to underscore strings containing numbers, so Area51Controller becomes area51_controller #1176 *Nicholas Seckar*
1576
1577 * Fixed that HashWithIndifferentAccess stringified all keys including symbols, ints, objects, and arrays #1162 *Nicholas Seckar*
1578
1579 * Fixed Time#last_year to go back in time, not forward #1278 *fabien@odilat.com*
1580
1581 * Fixed the pluralization of analysis to analyses #1295 *seattle@rootimage.msu.edu*
1582
1583 * Fixed that Time.local(2005,12).months_since(1) would raise "ArgumentError: argument out of range" #1311 *jhahn@niveon.com*
1584
1585 * Added silencing to the default Logger class
1586
1587
1588 ## 1.0.4 (19th April, 2005) ##
1589
1590 * Fixed that in some circumstances controllers outside of modules may have hidden ones inside modules. For example, admin/content might have been hidden by /content. #1075 *Nicholas Seckar*
1591
1592 * Fixed inflection of perspectives and similar words #1045 *Thijs van der Vossen*
1593
1594 * Added Fixnum#even? and Fixnum#odd?
1595
1596 * Fixed problem with classes being required twice. Object#const_missing now uses require_dependency to load files. It used to use require_or_load which would cause models to be loaded twice, which was not good for validations and other class methods #971 *Nicholas Seckar*
1597
1598
1599 ## 1.0.3 (27th March, 2005) ##
1600
1601 * Fixed Inflector.pluralize to handle capitalized words #932 *Jeremy Kemper*
1602
1603 * Added Object#suppress which allows you to make a saner choice around with exceptions to swallow #980. Example:
1604
1605 suppress(ZeroDivisionError) { 1/0 }
1606
1607 ...instead of:
1608
1609 1/0 rescue nil # BAD, EVIL, DIRTY.
1610
1611
1612 ## 1.0.2 (22th March, 2005) ##
1613
1614 * Added Kernel#returning -- a Ruby-ized realization of the K combinator, courtesy of Mikael Brockman.
1615
1616 def foo
1617 returning values = [] do
1618 values << 'bar'
1619 values << 'baz'
1620 end
1621 end
1622
1623 foo # => ['bar', 'baz']

1626 ## 1.0.1 (7th March, 2005) ##
1627
1628 * Fixed Hash#indifferent_access to also deal with include? and fetch and nested hashes #726 *Nicholas Seckar*

1632 * Added inflection rules for "sh" words, like "wish" and "fish" #755 *phillip@pjbsoftware.com*
1633
1634 * Fixed an exception when using Ajax based requests from Safari because Safari appends a \000 to the post body. Symbols can't have \000 in them so indifferent access would throw an exception in the constructor. Indifferent hashes now use strings internally instead. #746 *Tobias Lütke*
1635
1636 * Added String#to_time and String#to_date for wrapping ParseDate
1637

1677
1678 * Added Inflector.humanize to turn attribute names like employee_salary into "Employee salary". Used by automated error reporting in AR.
1679
1680 * Added availability of class inheritable attributes to the masses #477 *Jeremy Kemper*
1681
1682 class Foo
1683 class_inheritable_reader :read_me
1684 class_inheritable_writer :write_me
1685 class_inheritable_accessor :read_and_write_me
1686 class_inheritable_array :read_and_concat_me
1687 class_inheritable_hash :read_and_update_me
1688 end
1689
1690 # Bar gets a clone of (not a reference to) Foo's attributes.
1691 class Bar < Foo
1692 end
1693
1694 Bar.read_and_write_me == Foo.read_and_write_me

1696 Bar.read_and_write_me != Foo.read_and_write_me
1697
