*2.1.0 (May 31st, 2008)*

* 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]

* Hash.from_xml: datetime xml types overflow to Ruby DateTime class when out of range of Time. Adding tests for utc offsets [Geoff Buesing]

* TimeWithZone #+ and #- : ensure overflow to DateTime with Numeric arg [Geoff Buesing]

* Remove unused JSON::RESERVED_WORDS, JSON.valid_identifier? and JSON.reserved_word? methods. Resolves #164. [Cheah Chu Yeow]

* Adding Date.current, which returns Time.zone.today if config.time_zone is set; otherwise returns Date.today [Geoff Buesing]

* Time.zone.parse return nil for strings with no date information [Geoff Buesing]

* Time.zone.parse respects offset information in string. Resolves #105. [Scott Fleckenstein, Geoff Buesing]

* Added Ruby 1.8 implementation of Process.daemon

* 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]

* Time#since behaves correctly when passed a Duration. Closes #11527 [kemiller]

* Add #getutc alias for DateTime#utc [Geoff Buesing]

* Refactor TimeWithZone: don't send #since, #ago, #+, #-, #advance through method_missing [Geoff Buesing]

* Time, DateTime and TimeWithZone #in_time_zone defaults to Time.zone. Removing now unneeded #in_current_time_zone [Geoff Buesing]

* TZInfo caches Timezone instances in its own internal hash cache, so TimeZone::MAPPING doesn't need to cache them as well [Geoff Buesing]

* Adding TimeZone#parse [Geoff Buesing]

* Adding TimeZone#at and DateTime#to_f [Geoff Buesing]

* TimeWithZone responds to Ruby 1.9 weekday-named query methods [Geoff Buesing]

* Fixed that BufferedLogger should create its own directory if one doesn't already exist #11285 [lotswholetime]

* 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]

* Removing unneeded #change_time_zone method from Time, DateTime and TimeWithZone [Geoff Buesing]

* TimeZone #local and #now correctly enforce DST rules [Geoff Buesing]

* TimeWithZone instances correctly enforce DST rules. Adding TimeZone#period_for_utc [Geoff Buesing]

* test_time_with_datetime_fallback expects DateTime.local_offset instead of DateTime.now.offset [Geoff Buesing]

* Adding TimeWithZone #marshal_dump and #marshal_load [Geoff Buesing]

* Add OrderedHash#to_hash [josh]

* Adding Time#end_of_day, _quarter, _week, and _year. #9312 [Juanjo Bazan, Tarmo Tänav, BigTitus]

* Adding TimeWithZone#between? [Geoff Buesing]

* Time.=== returns true for TimeWithZone instances [Geoff Buesing]

* 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]

* Add String#squish and String#squish! to remove consecutive chunks of whitespace. #11123 [jordi, Henrik N]

* Serialize BigDecimals as Floats when using to_yaml. #8746 [ernesto.jimenez]

* Adding TimeWithZone #to_yaml, #to_datetime, #eql? and method aliases for duck-typing compatibility with Time [Geoff Buesing]

* TimeWithZone #in_time_zone returns +self+ if zone argument is the same as #time_zone [Geoff Buesing]

* Adding TimeWithZone #to_a, #to_f, #to_i, #httpdate, #rfc2822 [Geoff Buesing]

* Pruning unneeded TimeWithZone#change_time_zone_to_current [Geoff Buesing]

* Time#zone=, #in_time_zone and #change_time_zone accept a Duration [Geoff Buesing]

* Time#in_time_zone handles Time.local instances correctly [Geoff Buesing]

* 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]

* TimeZone#new method renamed #local; when used with Time.zone, constructor now reads: Time.zone.local() [Geoff Buesing]

* 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 [DHH]

* Remove :nodoc: entries around the ActiveSupport test/unit assertions. #10946 [dancroak, jamesh]

* Add Time.zone_default accessor for setting the default time zone. Rails::Configuration.time_zone sets this. #10982 [Geoff Buesing]

* cache.fetch(key, :force => true) to force a cache miss. [Jeremy Kemper]

* Support retrieving TimeZones with a Duration. TimeZone[-28800] == TimeZone[-480.minutes]. [rick]

* TimeWithZone#- added, so that #- can handle a Time or TimeWithZone argument correctly [Geoff Buesing]

* with_timezone test helper renamed with_env_tz, to distinguish between setting ENV['TZ'] and setting Time.zone in tests [Geoff Buesing]

* Time#- coerces TimeWithZone argument to a Time instance so that difference in seconds can be calculated. Closes #10914 [Geoff Buesing, yyyc514]

* Adding UTC zone to TimeZone; TimeWithZone no longer has to fake UTC zone with nil [Geoff Buesing]

* Time.get_zone refactored to private method, given that the encapsulated logic is only useful internally [Geoff Buesing]

* 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]

* TimeZone#to_s uses UTC rather than GMT; reapplying change that was undone in [8679]. #1689 [Cheah Chu Yeow]

* 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]

* 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]

* TimeZone#now returns an ActiveSupport::TimeWithZone [Geoff Buesing]

* Time #in_current_time_zone and #change_time_zone_to_current return self when Time.zone is nil [Geoff Buesing]

* Remove unneeded #to_datetime_default_s alias for DateTime#to_s, given that we inherit a #to_default_s from Date that does exactly the same thing [Geoff Buesing]

* 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]

* Extract ActiveSupport::Callbacks from Active Record, test case setup and teardown, and ActionController::Dispatcher. #10727 [Josh Peek]

* Introducing DateTime #utc, #utc? and #utc_offset, for duck-typing compatibility with Time. Closes #10002 [Geoff Buesing]

* Hash#to_xml handles symbol values. #9954 [Assaf]

* Hash#symbolize_keys behaves well with integer keys. #9890 [PotatoSalad]

* 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]

* Fixed Date#xmlschema for dates outside the range of what can be created with Time #9744 [Geoff Buesing]

* Fixed that La Paz was included in -25200 and -14400 offsets when it should only be in -14400 #9735 [bermi]

* Demote Hash#to_xml to use XmlSimple#xml_in_string so it can't read files or stdin. #8453 [candlerb, Jeremy Kemper]

* Backport clean_logger changes to support ruby 1.8.2 [mislav]

* Added proper handling of arrays #8537 [hasmanyjosh]

  Before:
    Hash.from_xml '<images></images>'
    # => {:images => nil}

    Hash.from_xml '<images><image>foo.jpg</image></images>'
    # => {:images => {:image => "foo.jpg"}}

    Hash.from_xml '<images><image>foo.jpg</image><image>bar.jpg</image></images>'
    # => {:images => {:image => ["foo.jpg", "bar.jpg"]}}

  After:
    Hash.from_xml '<images type="array"></images>'
    # => {:images => []}

    Hash.from_xml '<images type="array"><image>foo.jpg</image></images>'
    # => {:images => ["foo.jpg"]}

    Hash.from_xml '<images type="array"><image>foo.jpg</image><image>bar.jpg</image></images>'
    # => {:images => ["foo.jpg", "bar.jpg"]}

* Added assert_difference and assert_no_difference to test/unit assertions [Tobias Luetke]

* 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 [DHH]

* Added parsing of file type in Hash.xml_in so you can easily do file uploads with base64 from an API [DHH]

    <person>
      <name>David</name>
      <avatar type="file" name="me.jpg" content_type="image/jpg">R0lGODlhkACZAPUAAM5lcfjrtMQCG=\n</avatar>
    </person>
  
  ...becomes:
  
    attributes = { :person => { :name => "David", :avatar => #<StringIO> } }
    attributes[:person][:avatar].content_type # => "image/jpg"
    attributes[:person][:avatar].original_filename # => "me.jpg"
    attributes[:person][:avatar].read # => binary data of the file
  
  Which is duck-type compatible with the files that you get when doing multipart uploads through HTML.

* Use XSD-compatible type names for Hash#to_xml and make the converters extendable #8047 [Tim Pope]

* Added yielding of builder in Hash#to_xml [DHH]

* Added Time#to_s(:time) which will just return H:M, like 17:44 [DHH]

* Add Module#attr_accessor_with_default to initialize value of attribute before setting it. Closes #6538. [Stuart Halloway, Marcel Molina Jr.]

* Fix cases where empty xml nodes weren't being translated to nil in Hash.create_from_xml [Rick Olso n]

  <written-on type="date"></written-on> # => { :type => 'date' } # WRONG
  <written-on type="date"></written-on> # => nil # RIGHT

* Tighten rescue clauses. #5985 [james@grayproductions.net]

* Detect missing_constants calls from removed modules and fail accordingly. [Nicholas Seckar]

* Stop using defined? in Dependencies.qualified_const_defined? since defined? may invoke const_missing. [Nicholas Seckar]

* Dependencies can autoload directories of nested classes. [Jeremy Kemper]
    Example:
      invoice.rb class Invoice
      invoice/lineitem.rb class Invoice::Lineitem

* Add Deprecation.silence so that Reloadable does not scold itself. [Nicholas Seckar]

* Add debugging logging to Dependencies. Currently can be enabled with Dependencies.log_activity = true; adding to Initializer and documenting is forthcoming. [Nicholas Seckar]

* Replace Reloadable with improvements to the Dependencies mechanism. [Nicholas Seckar]

* DateTime#to_time gives hour/minute/second resolution. #5747 [jon.evans@pobox.com]

* 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]
    # def foo() @foo__rofl end
    # def foo=(v) @foo__rofl = v end
    self.attr_internal_naming_format = '@%s__rofl'
    attr_internal :foo

* Add extention to obtain the missing constant from NameError instances. [Nicholas Seckar]

* Thoroughly document inflections. #5700 [petermichaux@gmail.com]

    class Content < ActiveRecord::Base
      # has a title attribute
    end
 
    class Email < ActiveRecord::Base
      alias_attribute :subject, :title
    end
 
    e = Email.find(1)
    e.title # => "Superstars"
    e.subject # => "Superstars"
    e.subject? # => true
    e.subject = "Megastars"
    e.title # => "Megastars"

* 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]
  By default, test prints to $stderr, dev logs, production ignores.
  Provide your own per-environment in e.g. config/environments/development.rb:
    ActiveSupport::Deprecation.behavior = Proc.new { |message| raise message }

* First cut of the Rails Deprecation system. [Koz]

* Strip boolean XML content before checking for 'true' [Rick Olson]

    [1, 2, 3].sum
    payments.sum { |p| p.price * p.tax_rate }
    payments.sum(&:price)

  This is instead of payments.inject(0) { |sum, p| sum + p.price }

* Correct and clarify Array#to_sentence docs. #5458 [brad@madriska.com]

* alias_method_chain preserves method punctuation so foo, foo?, and foo! may be chained with the same feature. [Jeremy Kemper]
    Example:
      alias_method_chain :save!, :validation
    is equivalent to
      alias_method :save_without_validation!, :save!
      alias_method :save!, :save_with_validation!

* Enhance Symbol#to_proc so it works with list objects, such as multi-dimensional arrays. Closes #5295 [nov@yo.rim.or.jp]. Example:

    {1 => "one", 2 => "two", 3 => "three"}.sort_by(&:first).map(&:last)
    #=> ["one", "two", "three"]

* Added Hash.create_from_xml(string) which will create a hash from a XML string and even typecast if possible [DHH]. Example:

    Hash.create_from_xml <<-EOT
      <note>
        <title>This is a note</title>
        <created-at type="date">2004-10-10</created-at>
      </note>
    EOT
  
  ...would return:
  
    { :note => { :title => "This is a note", :created_at => Date.new(2004, 10, 10) } }

* 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 [DHH]

* Fixed that Module#alias_method_chain should work with both foo? foo! and foo at the same time #4954 [anna@wota.jp]

* 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>]

* Add OrderedHash#values. [Sam Stephenson]

* Added Array#to_s(:db) that'll produce a comma-separated list of ids [DHH]. Example:
    
    Purchase.find(:all, :conditions => "product_id IN (#{shops.products.to_s(:db)})"

* Normalize classify's argument to a String so that it plays nice with Symbols. [Marcel Molina Jr.]

* Strip out leading schema name in classify. References #5139. [schoenm@earthlink.net]

* Remove Enumerable#first_match since break(value) handles the use case well enough. [Nicholas Seckar]

  Enumerable#first_match was like detect, but instead of returning the matching element, the yielded value returned. For example:
  
    user_xml = adapters(:from => User, :to => Xml).first_match do |adapter|
      adapter.adapt @user
    end
  
  But this is just as easily done with:
  
    user_xml = adapters(:from => User, :to => Xml).each do
      break adapter.adapt(@user)
    end
  
* Make Array#in_groups_of just return the grouped collection if a block isn't given. [Marcel Molina Jr.]

* Don't destroy a HashWithIndifferentAccess if symbolize_keys! or stringify_keys! is called on it. Closes #5076. [Marcel Molina Jr., guy.naor@famundo.com]

* Document Module::delegate. #5002 [pergesu@gmail.com]

* Replace alias method chaining with Module#alias_method_chain. [Marcel Molina Jr.]

* 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.]

* Replace Ruby's deprecated append_features in favor of included. [Marcel Molina Jr.]

* Allow default options in with_options to be overridden. Closes #4480. [murphy@cYcnus.de]

* Added Module#alias_method_chain [Jamis Buck]

* Updated to Builder 2.0 [DHH]

*1.3.0* (March 27th, 2006)

* When possible, avoid incorrectly obtaining constants from parent modules. Fixes #4221. [Nicholas Seckar]

* Add more tests for dependencies; refactor existing cases. [Nicholas Seckar]

* Move Module#parent and Module#as_load_path into core_ext. Add Module#parent. [Nicholas Seckar]

* Add CachingTools::HashCaching to simplify the creation of nested, autofilling hashes. [Nicholas Seckar]

* Remove a hack intended to avoid unloading the same class twice, but which would not work anyways. [Nicholas Seckar]

* Update Object.subclasses_of to locate nested classes. This affects Object.remove_subclasses_of in that nested classes will now be unloaded. [Nicholas Seckar]

* Update Object.remove_subclasses_of to use Class.remove_class, reducing duplication. [Nicholas Seckar]

* Added Fixnum#seconds for consistency, so you can say 5.minutes + 30.seconds instead of 5.minutes + 30 #4389 [François Beausoleil]

* Added option to String#camelize to generate lower-cased camel case by passing in :lower, like "super_man".camelize(:lower) # => "superMan" [DHH]

* Added Hash#diff to show the difference between two hashes [Chris McGrath]

* 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]

* Enhance Inflector.underscore to convert '-' into '_' (as the inverse of Inflector.dasherize) [Jamis Buck]

* Switched to_xml to use the xml schema format for datetimes. This allows the encoding of time zones and should improve operability. [Koz]

* Added a note to the documentation for the Date related Numeric extensions to indicate that they're
approximations and shouldn't be used for critical calculations. [Koz]

* Added Hash#to_xml and Array#to_xml that makes it much easier to produce XML from basic structures [DHH]. Examples:

    { :name => "David", :street_name => "Paulina", :age => 26, :moved_on => Date.new(2005, 11, 15) }.to_xml
    
  ...returns:

      <person>
        <street-name>Paulina</street-name>
        <name>David</name>
        <age type="integer">26</age>
        <moved-on type="date">2005-11-15</moved-on>
      </person>

* Moved Jim Weirich's wonderful Builder from Action Pack to Active Support (it's simply too useful to be stuck in AP) [DHH]

* Fixed that Array#to_sentence will return "" on an empty array instead of ", and" #3842, #4031 [rubyonrails@beautifulpixel.com]

* Add Enumerable#group_by for grouping collections based on the result of some
  block. Useful, for example, for grouping records by date.

  ex.

     latest_transcripts.group_by(&:day).each do |day, transcripts|
       p "#{day} -> #{transcripts.map(&:class) * ', '}"
     end
     "2006-03-01 -> Transcript"
     "2006-02-28 -> Transcript"
     "2006-02-27 -> Transcript, Transcript"
     "2006-02-26 -> Transcript, Transcript"

  Add Array#in_groups_of, for iterating over an array in groups of a certain
  size.

  ex.

     %w(1 2 3 4 5 6 7).in_groups_of(3) {|g| p g}
     ["1", "2", "3"]
     ["4", "5", "6"]
     ["7", nil, nil]

  [Marcel Molina Jr., Sam Stephenson]

* Added Kernel#daemonize to turn the current process into a daemon that can be killed with a TERM signal [DHH]

* 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:

  logger.around_info("Start rendering component (#{options.inspect}): ",
                     "\n\nEnd of component rendering") { yield }

* Added Time#beginning_of_quarter #3607 [cohen.jeff@gmail.com]

* Fix Object.subclasses_of to only return currently defined objects [Jonathan Viney <jonathan@bluewire.net.nz>]

* Fix constantize to properly handle names beginning with '::'. [Nicholas Seckar]

* Make String#last return the string instead of nil when it is shorter than the limit [Scott Barron].

* Added delegation support to Module that allows multiple delegations at once (unlike Forwardable in the stdlib) [DHH]. Example:

    class Account < ActiveRecord::Base
      has_one :subscription
      delegate :free?, :paying?, :to => :subscription
      delegate :overdue?, :to => "subscription.last_payment"
    end
    
    account.free? # => account.subscription.free?
    account.overdue? # => account.subscription.last_payment.overdue?

* Fix Reloadable to handle the case where a class that has been 'removed' has not yet been garbage collected. [Nicholas Seckar]

* Don't allow Reloadable to be included into Modules.

* Remove LoadingModule. [Nicholas Seckar]

* Add documentation for Reloadable::Subclasses. [Nicholas Seckar]

* Add Reloadable::Subclasses which handles the common case where a base class should not be reloaded, but its subclasses should be. [Nicholas Seckar]

* Further improvements to reloading code [Nicholas Seckar, Trevor Squires]
  
  - All classes/modules which include Reloadable can define reloadable? for fine grained control of reloading
  - Class.remove_class uses Module#parent to access the parent module
  - Class.remove_class expanded to handle multiple classes in a single call
  - LoadingModule.clear! has been removed as it is no longer required
  - Module#remove_classes_including has been removed in favor of Reloadable.reloadable_classes

* 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:

    class Setting
      include Reloadable
    end
  
  Reloading a class is done by removing its constant which will cause it to be loaded again on the next reference. [DHH]

* 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]

* 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]

* 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]

* Fix merge and dup for hashes with indifferent access #3404 [kenneth.miller@bitfield.net]

* Fix the requires in option_merger_test to unbreak AS tests. [Sam Stephenson]

* Make HashWithIndifferentAccess#update behave like Hash#update by returning the hash. #3419, #3425 [asnem@student.ethz.ch, JanPrill@blauton.de, Marcel Molina Jr.]

* Add ActiveSupport::JSON and Object#to_json for converting Ruby objects to JSON strings. [Sam Stephenson]

* Add Object#with_options for DRYing up multiple calls to methods having shared options. [Sam Stephenson] Example:

  ActionController::Routing::Routes.draw do |map|
    # Account routes
    map.with_options(:controller => 'account') do |account|
      account.home '', :action => 'dashboard'
      account.signup 'signup', :action => 'new'
      account.logout 'logout', :action => 'logout'
    end
  end

* 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]

* Active Support is warnings-safe. #1792 [Eric Hodel]

* 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]

* Add Symbol#to_proc, which allows for, e.g. [:foo, :bar].map(&:to_s). [Marcel Molina Jr.]

* Added the following methods [Marcel Molina Jr., Sam Stephenson]:
  * Object#copy_instance_variables_from(object) to copy instance variables from one object to another
  * Object#extended_by to get an instance's included/extended modules
  * Object#extend_with_included_modules_from(object) to extend an instance with the modules from another instance

*1.2.5* (December 13th, 2005)

* Become part of Rails 1.0

* Define kernel.rb methods in "class Object" instead of "module Kernel" to work around a Windows peculiarity [Sam Stephenson]

* Fix broken tests caused by incomplete loading of active support. [Nicholas Seckar]

* Fix status pluralization bug so status_codes doesn't get pluralized as statuses_code. #2758 [keithm@infused.org]

* Added Kernel#silence_stderr to silence stderr for the duration of the given block [Sam Stephenson]

* Changed Kernel#` to print a message to stderr (like Unix) instead of raising Errno::ENOENT on Win32 [Sam Stephenson]

* Changed 0.blank? to false rather than true since it violates everyone's expectation of blankness. #2518, #2705 [rails@jeffcole.net]

* When loading classes using const_missing, raise a NameError if and only if the file we tried to load was not present. [Nicholas Seckar]

* Added petabytes and exebytes to numeric extensions #2397 [timct@mac.com]

* Added Time#end_of_month to accompany Time#beginning_of_month #2514 [Jens-Christian Fischer]


*1.2.2* (October 26th, 2005)

* Set Logger.silencer = false to disable Logger#silence. Useful for debugging fixtures.

* Add title case method to String to do, e.g., 'action_web_service'.titlecase # => 'Action Web Service'. [Marcel Molina Jr.]


*1.2.1* (October 19th, 2005)

* Classify generated routing code as framework code to avoid appearing in application traces. [Nicholas Seckar]

* Show all framework frames in the framework trace. [Nicholas Seckar]


*1.2.0* (October 16th, 2005)

* Update Exception extension to show the first few framework frames in an application trace. [Nicholas Seckar]

* Fixed that Time#change should also reset usec when also resetting minutes #2459 [ikeda@dream.big.or.jp]

* Fix Logger compatibility for distributions that don't keep Ruby and its standard library in sync.

* Replace '%e' from long and short time formats as Windows does not support it. #2344. [Tom Ward <tom@popdog.net>]

* 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)

* Moved require_library_or_gem into Kernel. #1992 [Michael Schuerig <michael@schuerig.de>]

* Add :rfc822 as an option for Time#to_s (to get rfc822-formatted times)

* Chain the const_missing hook to any previously existing hook so rails can play nicely with rake

* Clean logger is compatible with both 1.8.2 and 1.8.3 Logger. #2263 [Michael Schuerig <michael@schuerig.de>]

* Added native, faster implementations of .blank? for the core types #2286 [skae]

* Fixed clean logger to work with Ruby 1.8.3 Logger class #2245

* Fixed memory leak with Active Record classes when Dependencies.mechanism = :load #1704 [c.r.mcgrath@gmail.com]

* Fixed Inflector.underscore for use with acronyms, so HTML becomes html instead of htm_l #2173 [k@v2studio.com]

* Fixed inflections for status, quiz, move #2056 [deirdre@deirdre.net]

* Added Hash#reverse_merge, Hash#reverse_merge!, and Hash#reverse_update to ease the use of default options

* Added Array#to_sentence that'll turn ['one', 'two', 'three'] into "one, two, and three" #2157 [m.stienstra@fngtps.com]

* Added Kernel#silence_warnings to turn off warnings temporarily for the passed block

* Added String#starts_with? and String#ends_with? #2118 [thijs@vandervossen.net]

* Added easy extendability to the inflector through Inflector.inflections (using the Inflector::Inflections singleton class). Examples:

    Inflector.inflections do |inflect|
      inflect.plural /^(ox)$/i, '\1\2en'
      inflect.singular /^(ox)en/i, '\1'
    
      inflect.irregular 'octopus', 'octopi'
    
      inflect.uncountable "equipment"
    end

* 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.

* Make Time#last_month work when invoked on the 31st of a month.

* Add Time.days_in_month, and make Time#next_month work when invoked on the 31st of a month

* Fixed that Time#midnight would have a non-zero usec on some platforms #1836

* Fixed inflections of "index/indices" #1766 [damn_pepe@gmail.com]

* Factor Fixnum and Bignum extensions into Integer extensions [Nicholas Seckar]

* Hooked #ordinalize into Fixnum and Bignum classes. [Nicholas Seckar, danp]

* 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]


*1.1.1* (11 July, 2005)

* Added more efficient implementation of the development mode reset of classes #1638 [Chris McGrath]


*1.1.0* (6 July, 2005)

* Fixed conflict with Glue gem #1606 [Rick Olson]

* 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]

* Fixed memory leak with Object#remove_subclasses_of, which inflicted a Rails application running in development mode with a ~20KB leak per request #1289 [c.r.mcgrath@gmail.com]

* 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]

* Added an exception if calling id on nil to WhinyNil #584 [kevin-temp@writesoon.com]

* Added Fix/Bignum#multiple_of? which returns true on 14.multiple_of?(7) and false on 16.multiple_of?(7) #1464 [Thomas Fuchs]

* Added even? and odd? to work with Bignums in addition to Fixnums #1464 [Thomas Fuchs]

* 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]

* Increased the speed of indifferent hash access by using Hash#default. #1436 [Nicholas Seckar]

* Added that " " is now also blank? (using strip if available)

* Fixed Dependencies so all modules are able to load missing constants #1173 [Nicholas Seckar]

* Fixed the Inflector to underscore strings containing numbers, so Area51Controller becomes area51_controller #1176 [Nicholas Seckar]

* Fixed that HashWithIndifferentAccess stringified all keys including symbols, ints, objects, and arrays #1162 [Nicholas Seckar]

* Fixed Time#last_year to go back in time, not forward #1278 [fabien@odilat.com]

* Fixed the pluralization of analysis to analyses #1295 [seattle@rootimage.msu.edu]

* Fixed that Time.local(2005,12).months_since(1) would raise "ArgumentError: argument out of range" #1311 [jhahn@niveon.com]

* Added silencing to the default Logger class


*1.0.4* (19th April, 2005)

* 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]

* Fixed inflection of perspectives and similar words #1045 [thijs@vandervossen.net]

* Added Fixnum#even? and Fixnum#odd?

* 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]


*1.0.3* (27th March, 2005)

* Fixed Inflector.pluralize to handle capitalized words #932 [Jeremy Kemper]

* Added Object#suppress which allows you to make a saner choice around with exceptions to swallow #980. Example:

    suppress(ZeroDivisionError) { 1/0 }
  
  ...instead of:
  
    1/0 rescue nil # BAD, EVIL, DIRTY.


*1.0.2* (22th March, 2005)

* Added Kernel#returning -- a Ruby-ized realization of the K combinator, courtesy of Mikael Brockman.

    def foo
      returning values = [] do
        values << 'bar'
        values << 'baz'
      end
    end
    
    foo # => ['bar', 'baz']


*1.0.1* (7th March, 2005)

* Fixed Hash#indifferent_access to also deal with include? and fetch and nested hashes #726 [Nicholas Seckar]

* Added Object#blank? -- see http://redhanded.hobix.com/inspect/objectBlank.html #783 [_why the lucky stiff]

* Added inflection rules for "sh" words, like "wish" and "fish" #755 [phillip@pjbsoftware.com]

* 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 Luetke]

* Added String#to_time and String#to_date for wrapping ParseDate


*1.0.0* (24th February, 2005)

* Added TimeZone as the first of a number of value objects that among others Active Record can use rich value objects using composed_of #688 [Jamis Buck]

* Added Date::Conversions for getting dates in different convenient string representations and other objects

* Added Time::Conversions for getting times in different convenient string representations and other objects

* Added Time::Calculations to ask for things like Time.now.tomorrow, Time.now.yesterday, Time.now.months_ago(4) #580 [DP|Flurin]. Examples:

    "Later today" => now.in(3.hours),
    "Tomorrow morning" => now.tomorrow.change(:hour => 9),
    "Tomorrow afternoon" => now.tomorrow.change(:hour => 14),
    "In a couple of days" => now.tomorrow.tomorrow.change(:hour => 9),
    "Next monday" => now.next_week.change(:hour => 9),
    "In a month" => now.next_month.change(:hour => 9),
    "In 6 months" => now.months_since(6).change(:hour => 9),
    "In a year" => now.in(1.year).change(:hour => 9)

* Upgraded to breakpoint 92 which fixes:

    * overload IRB.parse_opts(), fixes #443
      => breakpoints in tests work even when running them via rake
    * untaint handlers, might fix an issue discussed on the Rails ML
    * added verbose mode to breakpoint_client
    * less noise caused by breakpoint_client by default
    * ignored TerminateLineInput exception in signal handler
      => quiet exit on Ctrl-C

* Fixed Inflector for words like "news" and "series" that are the same in plural and singular #603 [echion], #615 [marcenuc]

* Added Hash#stringify_keys and Hash#stringify_keys!

* Added IndifferentAccess as a way to wrap a hash by a symbol-based store that also can be accessed by string keys

* Added Inflector.constantize to turn "Admin::User" into a reference for the constant Admin::User

* Added that Inflector.camelize and Inflector.underscore can deal with modules like turning "Admin::User" into "admin/user" and back

* Added Inflector.humanize to turn attribute names like employee_salary into "Employee salary". Used by automated error reporting in AR.

* Added availability of class inheritable attributes to the masses #477 [Jeremy Kemper]

    class Foo
      class_inheritable_reader :read_me
      class_inheritable_writer :write_me
      class_inheritable_accessor :read_and_write_me
      class_inheritable_array :read_and_concat_me
      class_inheritable_hash :read_and_update_me
    end

    # Bar gets a clone of (not a reference to) Foo's attributes.
    class Bar < Foo
    end

    Bar.read_and_write_me == Foo.read_and_write_me
    Bar.read_and_write_me = 'bar'
    Bar.read_and_write_me != Foo.read_and_write_me

* Added Inflections as an extension on String, so Inflector.pluralize(Inflector.classify(name)) becomes name.classify.pluralize #476 [Jeremy Kemper]

* Added Byte operations to Numeric, so 5.5.megabytes + 200.kilobytes #461 [Marcel Molina]

* Fixed that Dependencies.reload can't load the same file twice #420 [Kent Sibilev]

* Added Fixnum#ago/until, Fixnum#since/from_now #450 [Jeremy Kemper]

* Added that Inflector now accepts Symbols and Classes by calling .to_s on the word supplied

* Added time unit extensions to Fixnum that'll return the period in seconds, like 2.days + 4.hours.
