* Added Kernel#silence_warnings to turn off warnings temporarily for the passed block
* Added String#starts_with? and String#ends_with? #2118 []
* 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"
* 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 []
* Added stripping of _id to String#humanize, so "employee_id" becomes "Employee" #1574 [Justin French]
* 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 []
*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 []
* Fixed memory leak with Object#remove_subclasses_of, which inflicted a Rails application running in development mode with a ~20KB leak per request #1289 []
* 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 []
* Added an exception if calling id on nil to WhinyNil #584 []
* 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 []
* 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 []
* Fixed the pluralization of analysis to analyses #1295 []
* Fixed that Time.local(2005,12).months_since(1) would raise "ArgumentError: argument out of range" #1311 []
* 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 []
* 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'
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 #783 [_why the lucky stiff]
* Added inflection rules for "sh" words, like "wish" and "fish" #755 []
* 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,, #580 [DP|Flurin]. Examples:
"Later today" =>,
"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" => => 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
# Bar gets a clone of (not a reference to) Foo's attributes.
class Bar < Foo
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.
