Rails 3.1.6 (Jun 12, 2012)

  • No changes.

Rails 3.1.5 (May 31, 2012)

  • No changes.

Rails 3.1.4 (unreleased)

  • Setting config.force_ssl also marks the session cookie as secure.

    José Valim

  • Add therubyrhino to Gemfile in new applications when running under JRuby.

    Guillermo Iguaran

Rails 3.1.3 (November 20, 2011)

  • New apps should be generated with a sass-rails dependency of 3.1.5, not 3.1.5.rc.2

Rails 3.1.2 (November 18, 2011)

  • Engines: don't blow up if db/seeds.rb is missing.

    Jeremy Kemper

  • rails new foo --skip-test-unit should not add the :test task to the rake default task. GH 2564

    José Valim

Rails 3.1.1 (October 7, 2011)

  • Add jquery-rails to Gemfile of plugins, test/dummy app needs it. Closes #3091. Santiago Pastorino

  • Add config.assets.initialize_on_precompile which, when set to false, forces rake assets:precompile to load the application but does not initialize it.

    To the app developer, this means configuration add in config/initializers/* will not be executed.

    Plugins developers need to special case their initializers that are meant to be run in the assets group by adding :group => :assets.

    José Valim

Rails 3.1.0 (August 30, 2011)

  • The default database schema file is written as UTF-8. Aaron Patterson

  • Generated apps with --dev or --edge flags depend on git versions of sass-rails and coffee-rails. Santiago Pastorino

  • Rack::Sendfile middleware is used only if x_sendfile_header is present. Santiago Pastorino

  • Add JavaScript Runtime name to the Rails Info properties. DHH

  • Make pp enabled by default in Rails console. Akira Matsuda

  • Add alias r for rails runner. Jordi Romero

  • Make sprockets/railtie require explicit and add --skip-sprockets to app generator José Valim

  • Added Rails.groups that automatically handles Rails.env and ENV["RAILS_GROUPS"] José Valim

  • The new rake task assets:clean removes precompiled assets. fxn

  • Application and plugin generation run bundle install unless --skip-gemfile or --skip-bundle. fxn

  • Fixed database tasks for jdbc* adapters #jruby Rashmi Yadav

  • Template generation for jdbcpostgresql #jruby Vishnu Atrai

  • Template generation for jdbcmysql and jdbcsqlite3 #jruby Arun Agrawal

  • The -j option of the application generator accepts an arbitrary string. If passed "foo", the gem "foo-rails" is added to the Gemfile, and the application JavaScript manifest requires "foo" and "foo_ujs". As of this writing "prototype-rails" and "jquery-rails" exist and provide those files via the asset pipeline. Default is "jquery". fxn

  • jQuery is no longer vendored, it is provided from now on by the jquery-rails gem. fxn

  • Prototype and Scriptaculous are no longer vendored, they are provided from now on by the prototype-rails gem. fxn

  • The scaffold controller will now produce SCSS file if Sass is available Prem Sichanugrist

  • The controller and resource generators will now automatically produce asset stubs (this can be turned off with --skip-assets). These stubs will use Coffee and Sass, if those libraries are available. DHH

  • jQuery is the new default JavaScript library. fxn

  • Changed scaffold, application, and mailer generator to create Ruby 1.9 style hash when running on Ruby 1.9 Prem Sichanugrist

    So instead of creating something like:

    redirect_to users_path, :notice => "User has been created"
    

    it will now be like this:

    redirect_to users_path, notice: "User has been created"
    

    You can also passing --old-style-hash to make Rails generate old style hash even you're on Ruby 1.9

  • Changed scaffold_controller generator to create format block for JSON instead of XML Prem Sichanugrist

  • Add using Turn with natural language test case names for test_help.rb when running with minitest (Ruby 1.9.2+) DHH

  • Direct logging of Active Record to STDOUT so it's shown inline with the results in the console DHH

  • Added config.force_ssl configuration which loads Rack::SSL middleware and force all requests to be under HTTPS protocol DHH, Prem Sichanugrist, and Josh Peek

  • Added rails plugin new command which generates rails plugin with gemspec, tests and dummy application for testing Piotr Sarnacki

  • Added -j parameter with jquery/prototype as options. Now you can create your apps with jQuery using rails new myapp -j jquery. The default is still Prototype. siong1987

  • Added Rack::Etag and Rack::ConditionalGet to the default middleware stack José Valim

  • Added Rack::Cache to the default middleware stack Yehuda Katz and Carl Lerche

  • Engine is now rack application Piotr Sarnacki

  • Added middleware stack to Engine Piotr Sarnacki

  • Added isolate_namespace() method to Engine, which sets Engine as isolated Piotr Sarnacki

  • Include all helpers from plugins and shared engines in application Piotr Sarnacki

Rails 3.0.0 (August 29, 2010)

  • Application generation: --skip-testunit and --skip-activerecord become --skip-test-unit and --skip-active-record respectively. fxn

  • Added console to Rails::Railtie as a hook called just after console starts. José Valim

  • Rails no longer autoload code in lib for application. You need to explicitly require it. José Valim

  • Rails::LogSubscriber was renamed to ActiveSupport::LogSubscriber José Valim

    config.session_store :cookie_store, {:key => "..."}
    config.cookie_secret = "fdsfhisdghfidugnfdlg"
    
  • railtie_name and engine_name are deprecated. You can now add any object to the configuration object: config.your_plugin = {} José Valim

  • Added config.generators.templates to provide alternative paths for the generators to look for templates José Valim

  • Added "rake about" as a replacement for script/about DHH

  • Removed all the default commands in script/* and replaced them with script/rails and a rails command that'll act the same when run from within the app [DHH]. Example:

    ./script/generate scaffold post title:string can now be called as rails g scaffold post title:string

    Run rails --help inside an app for more help.

  • Removed config/initializers/new_rails_defaults.rb as all frameworks now follow the settings from it DHH

  • Set config.time_zone to UTC by default DHH

  • Added default .gitignore (this is just recognizing Git market share, don't throw a hissy if you use another SCM) DHH

  • Added cookies.permanent, cookies.signed, and cookies.permanent.signed accessor for common cookie actions [DHH]. Examples:

    cookies.permanent[:prefers_open_id] = true
    # => Set-Cookie: prefers_open_id=true; path=/; expires=Sun, 16-Dec-2029 03:24:16 GMT
    
    cookies.signed[:discount] = 45
    # => Set-Cookie: discount=BAhpMg==--2c1c6906c90a3bc4fd54a51ffb41dffa4bf6b5f7; path=/
    
    cookies.signed[:discount]
    # => 45 (if the cookie was changed, you'll get a InvalidSignature exception)
    
    cookies.permanent.signed[:remember_me] = current_user.id
    # => Set-Cookie: discount=BAhU--848956038e692d7046deab32b7131856ab20e14e; path=/; expires=Sun, 16-Dec-2029 03:24:16 GMT
    

    ...to use the signed cookies, you need to set a secret to ActionController::Base.cookie_verifier_secret (automatically done in config/initializers/cookie_verification_secret.rb for new Rails applications).

  • Added config/initializers/cookie_verification_secret.rb with an auto-generated secret for using ActionController::Base#cookies.signed DHH

  • Fixed that the debugger wouldn't go into IRB mode because of left-over ARGVs DHH

  • I18n support for plugins. #2325 Antonio Tapiador, Sven Fuchs

  • Added db/seeds.rb as a default file for storing seed data for the database. Can be loaded with rake db:seed (or created alongside the db with db:setup). (This is also known as the "Stop Putting Gawd Damn Seed Data In Your Migrations" feature) DHH

2.3.2 Final (March 15, 2009)

  • Remove outdated script/plugin options Pratik Naik

  • Allow metal to live in plugins #2045 Matthew Rudy

  • Add a rake task to apply a template to an existing application : rake rails:template LOCATION=~/template.rb Pratik Naik

  • Add "-m/--template" option to Rails generator to apply a template to the generated application. Jeremy McAnally

    This has been extracted from rg - http://github.com/jeremymcanally/rg
    
    Example:
    
        # template.rb
    
        # Install plugins from git or svn
        plugin "will-paginate", :git => "git://github.com/mislav/will_paginate.git"
        plugin "old-restful-auth", :svn => "http://svn.techno-weenie.net/projects/plugins/restful_authentication/"
    
        # Add gems to environment.rb
        gem "jeremymcanally-context"
        gem "bluecloth"
    
        # Vendor file. Data in a string or...
        vendor("borrowed.rb", <<CODE
          def helpful_method
            do_something_helpful_here
          end
        CODE
    
        # ...file data from block return value.
        # #initializer creates a new initializer file
        initializer("crypto.rb") do
          salt = "--#{Time.now}--#{rand}--#{srand(Time.now.to_i)}"
    
          "SPECIAL_SALT = '#{salt}'"
        end
    
    Usage:
    
      To use a template, provide a file path or URL:
    
      1. Using a local file :
    
        rails <application name> -m /path/to/my/template.rb
    
      2. Or directly from a URL :
    
        rails <application name> --template=http://gist.github.com/31208.txt

  • Generators use .html.erb view template naming. #8278 *Tim Pope

  • Updated resource_scaffold and model generators to use short-hand style migrations David Heinemeier Hansson

  • Updated initializer to only load #{RAILS_ENV}.rb once. Added deprecation warning for config.breakpoint_server. Nicholas Seckar

  • 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

    To use the new debugger, start your server with script/server --debugger and insert a call to 'debugger' (instead of 'breakpoint') where you want to jump into the debugger.

    BACKWARDS INCOMPATIBILITY NOTE: You must remove the default line 12 from config/environments/development.rb:

    config.breakpoint_server = true
    

    This configuration option is no longer available. Rails will fail to start in development mode as long as that's still present.

  • Resource scaffolding responds to new.xml. #8185 Eric Mill

  • Include Active Resource in rails:freeze:edge rake task. Thomas Fuchs

    config.load_paths += %W( #{RAILS_ROOT}/vendor/rails/actionwebservice/lib )
    

    ...or just gem 'actionwebservice'

  • Give generate scaffold a more descriptive database message. Closes #7316 Jeremy McAnally

  • Canonicalize RAILS_ROOT by using File.expand_path on Windows, which doesn't have to worry about symlinks, and Pathname#realpath elsewhere, which respects symlinks in relative paths but is incompatible with Windows. #6755 Jeremy Kemper, trevor

  • Deprecation: remove components from controller paths. Jeremy Kemper

  • Windows: include MinGW in RUBY_PLATFORM check. #2982 okkez000@gmail.com, Kaspar Schiess

  • Split out the basic plugin locator functionality into an abstract super class. Add a FileSystemLocator to do the job of checking the plugin_paths for plugins. Add plugin_locators configuration option which will iterate over the set of plugin locators and load each of the plugin loaders they return. Rename locater everywhere to locator. Marcel Molina Jr.

  • Split plugin location and loading out of the initializer and into a new Plugin namespace, which includes Plugin::Locater and Plugin::Loader. The loader class that is used can be customized using the config.plugin_loader option. Those monkey patching the plugin loading subsystem take note, the internals changing here will likely break your modifications. The good news is that it should be substantially easier to hook into the plugin locating and loading process now. Marcel Molina Jr.

  • Added assumption that all plugin creators desire to be sharing individuals and release their work under the MIT license David Heinemeier Hansson

  • Added source-annotations extractor tasks to rake [Jamis Buck]. This allows you to add FIXME, OPTIMIZE, and TODO comments to your source code that can then be extracted in concert with rake notes (shows all), rake notes:fixme, rake notes:optimize and rake notes:todo.

  • Added fixtures :all to test_helper.rb to assume that most people just want all their fixtures loaded all the time David Heinemeier Hansson

  • Fixed that script/server running against Mongrel should tail the proper log regardless of the environment David Heinemeier Hansson

  • Update initializer to load Rails::VERSION as soon as possible. Closes #6698. Nicholas Seckar

  • Added ActiveRecord::Base.clear_active_connections! in development mode so the database connection is not carried over from request to request. Some databases won't reread the schema if that doesn't happen (I'm looking at you SQLite), so you have to restart the server after each migration (= no fun) David Heinemeier Hansson

  • Made RAILS_GEM_VERSION work for beta gems too, so specifying 1.1.6 will give you 1.1.6.4520 if available David Heinemeier Hansson

  • Update to Prototype and script.aculo.us [5579]. Thomas Fuchs

  • Added Mongrel-spawning capabilities to script/process/spawner. Mongrel will be the default choice if installed, otherwise FCGI is tried [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:

    spawner               # starts instances on 8000, 8001, and 8002 using Mongrel if available
    spawner fcgi          # starts instances on 8000, 8001, and 8002 using FCGI
    spawner mongrel -i 5  # starts instances on 8000, 8001, 8002, 8003, and 8004 using Mongrel
    spawner -p 9100 -i 10 # starts 10 instances counting from 9100 to 9109 using Mongrel if available
    spawner -p 9100 -r 5  # starts 3 instances counting from 9100 to 9102 and attempts start them every 5 seconds
    

    Also note that script/process/reaper is Mongrel capable. So the combination of spawner and reaper is a built-in alternative to something like mongrel_cluster.

  • Fix Dispatcher.reset_application! so that AR subclasses are removed and Observers re-initialized after Reloadable classes are removed. Closes #5743. Rick Olson

  • Clarify usage of script/plugin source. Closes #5344. James Adam

  • Add Dispatcher.to_prepare and config.to_prepare to provide a pre-request hook. Nicholas Seckar

  • Tweak the Rails load order so observers are loaded after plugins, and reloaded in development mode. Closed #5279. Rick Olson

  • Added that you can change the web server port in config/lighttpd.conf from script/server --port/-p #5465 mats@imediatec.co.uk

  • script/performance/profiler compatibility with the new ruby-prof, including an option to choose the results printer. #5679 Shugo Maeda

  • Fixed the failsafe response so it uses either the current recognized controller or ApplicationController. Rick Olson

  • Make sure script/reaper only reaps dispatcher pids by default, and not the spawner's pid. Jamis Buck

  • Fix script/plugin about so it uses about.yml and not meta.yml. James Adam

  • Dispatcher processes rescued actions with the same controller that processed the request. #4625 sd@notso.net

  • rails -d frontbase to create a new project with a frontbase database.yml. #4945 mlaster@metavillage.com

  • Ensure the logger is initialized. #5629 mike@clarkware.com

  • Added Mongrel-spawning capabilities to script/process/spawner. Mongrel will be the default choice if installed, otherwise FCGI is tried [David Heinemeier Hansson]. Examples:

    spawner               # starts instances on 8000, 8001, and 8002 using Mongrel if available
    spawner fcgi          # starts instances on 8000, 8001, and 8002 using FCGI
    spawner mongrel -i 5  # starts instances on 8000, 8001, 8002, 8003, and 8004 using Mongrel
    spawner -p 9100 -i 10 # starts 10 instances counting from 9100 to 9109 using Mongrel if available
    spawner -p 9100 -r 5  # starts 3 instances counting from 9100 to 9102 and attempts start them every 5 seconds
    

    Also note that script/process/reaper is Mongrel capable. So the combination of spawner and reaper is a built-in alternative to something like mongrel_cluster.

    0001  class TopController < ApplicationController
    0002    def show
    0003->    breakpoint
    0004    end
    0005
    0006    def index
    0007    end
    0008
    => "/path/to/rails/root/app/controllers/top_controller.rb"
    
    irb(#<TopController:0x40822a68>):004:0> show_call_stack 3
    vendor/rails/railties/lib/breakpoint.rb:536:in `breakpoint'

    app/controllers/top_controller.rb:3:in `show'
    => "/path/to/rails/root/app/controllers/top_controller.rb:3"

  • Added tracking of database and framework versions in script/about #4088 charles.gerungan@gmail.com/Rick Olson

  • Added public/javascripts/application.js as a sample since it'll automatically be included in javascript_include_tag :defaults David Heinemeier Hansson

  • Added socket cleanup for lighttpd, both before and after David Heinemeier Hansson

  • Added automatic creation of tmp/ when running script/server David Heinemeier Hansson

  • Added silence_stream that'll work on both STDERR or STDOUT or any other stream and deprecated silence_stderr in the process David Heinemeier Hansson

  • Added reload! method to script/console to reload all models and others that include Reloadable without quitting the console #4056 esad@esse.at

  • Remove the extraneous AR::Base.threaded_connections setting from the webrick server. Jeremy Kemper

  • Add integration test support to app generation and testing Jamis Buck

  • CHANGED DEFAULT: ActiveRecord::Base.schema_format is now :ruby by default instead of :sql. This means that we'll assume you want to live in the world of db/schema.rb where the grass is green and the girls are pretty. If your schema contains un-dumpable elements, such as constraints or database-specific column types, you just got an invitation to either 1) patch the dumper to include foreign key support, 2) stop being db specific, or 3) just change the default in config/environment.rb to config.active_record.schema_format = :sql -- we even include an example for that on new Rails skeletons now. Brought to you by the federation of opinionated framework builders! David Heinemeier Hansson

  • Added -r/--repeat option to script/process/spawner that offers the same loop protection as the spinner did. This deprecates the script/process/spinner, so it's no longer included in the default Rails skeleton, but still available for backwards compatibility #3461 ror@andreas-s.net

  • Added collision option to template generation in generators #3329 [anna@wota.jp]. Examples:

    m.template "stuff.config" , "config/stuff.config" , :collision => :skip
    m.template "auto-stamping", "config/generator.log", :collision => :force
    
  • Added more information to script/plugin's doings to ease debugging #3755 Rick Olson

  • Changed the default configuration for lighttpd to use tmp/sockets instead of log/ for the FastCGI sockets David Heinemeier Hansson

  • Added a default configuration of the FileStore for fragment caching if tmp/cache is available, which makes action/fragment caching ready to use out of the box with no additional configuration David Heinemeier Hansson

  • Changed the default session configuration to place sessions in tmp/sessions, if that directory is available, instead of /tmp (this essentially means a goodbye to 9/10 White Screen of Death errors and should have web hosting firms around the world cheering) David Heinemeier Hansson

  • Added tmp/sessions, tmp/cache, and tmp/sockets as default directories in the Rails skeleton David Heinemeier Hansson

  • Added that script/generate model will now automatically create a migration file for the model created. This can be turned off by calling the generator with --skip-migration David Heinemeier Hansson

  • Added -d/--database option to the rails command, so you can do "rails --database=sqlite2 myapp" to start a new application preconfigured to use SQLite2 as the database. Removed the configuration examples from SQLite and PostgreSQL from the default MySQL configuration David Heinemeier Hansson

  • Allow script/server -c /path/to/lighttpd.conf Jeremy Kemper

  • Remove hardcoded path to reaper script in script/server Jeremy Kemper

  • Update script.aculo.us to V1.5.3 Thomas Fuchs

  • Added SIGTRAP signal handler to RailsFCGIHandler that'll force the process into a breakpoint after the next request. This breakpoint can then be caught with script/breakpointer and give you access to the Ruby image inside that process. Useful for debugging memory leaks among other things David Heinemeier Hansson

  • Changed default lighttpd.conf to use CWD from lighttpd 1.4.10 that allows the same configuration to be used for both detach and not. Also ensured that auto-repeaping of FCGIs only happens when lighttpd is not detached. David Heinemeier Hansson

  • Added Configuration#after_initialize for registering a block which gets called after the framework is fully initialized. Useful for things like per-environment configuration of plugins. Michael Koziarski

  • Added check for RAILS_FRAMEWORK_ROOT constant that allows the Rails framework to be found in a different place than vendor/rails. Should be set in boot.rb. David Heinemeier Hansson

  • Fixed that static requests could unlock the mutex guarding dynamic requests in the WEBrick servlet #3433 tom@craz8.com

  • Fixed documentation tasks to work with Rake 0.7.0 #3563 kazuhiko@fdiary.net

  • Add plugin library directories to the load path after the lib directory so that libraries in the lib directory get precedence. #2910. James Adam

  • Make help for the console command more explicit about how to specify the desired environment in which to run the console. #2911. anonymous

  • PostgreSQL: the purge_test_database Rake task shouldn't explicitly specify the template0 template when creating a fresh test database. #2964 Dreamer3

  • Introducing the session_migration generator. Creates an add_session_table migration. Allows generator to specify migrations directory. #2958, #2960 Rick Olson

  • Don't detach or fork for script/server tailing Nicholas Seckar

  • Changed all script/* to use #!/usr/bin/env ruby instead of hard-coded Ruby path. public/dispatcher.* still uses the hard-coded path for compatibility with web servers that don't have Ruby in path David Heinemeier Hansson

  • Force RAILS_ENV to be "test" when running tests, so that ENV["RAILS_ENV"] = "production" in config/environment.rb doesn't wreck havok [David Heinemeier Hansson] #2660

  • Correct versioning in :freeze_gems Rake task. #2778 Jakob Skjerning, Jeremy Kemper

  • Added an omnipresent RailsInfoController with a properties action that delivers an HTML rendering of Rails::Info (but only when local_request? is true). Added a new default index.html which fetches this with Ajax. Sam Stephenson

  • Added prevention of duplicate migrations from the generator #2240 François Beausoleil

  • Add db_schema_dump and db_schema_import rake tasks to work with the new ActiveRecord::SchemaDumper (for dumping a schema to and reading a schema from a ruby file).

  • Reformed all the config/environments/* files to conform to the new Rails::Configuration approach. Fully backwards compatible.

  • Added create_sessions_table, drop_sessions_table, and purge_sessions_table as rake tasks for databases that supports migrations (MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite) to get a table for use with CGI::Session::ActiveRecordStore

  • Added dump of schema version to the db_structure_dump task for databases that support migrations #1835 Rick Olson

  • Fixed script/profiler for Ruby 1.8.2 #1863 Rick Olson

  • Fixed clone_structure_to_test task for SQLite #1864 jon@burningbush.us

  • Added -m/--mime-types option to the WEBrick server, so you can specify a Apache-style mime.types file to load #2059 ask@develooper.com

  • Added -c/--svn option to the generator that'll add new files and remove destroyed files using svn add/revert/remove as appropriate #2064 Kevin Clark

  • Added -c/--charset option to WEBrick server, so you can specify a default charset (which without changes is UTF-8) #2084 wejn@box.cz

  • Make the default stats task extendable by modifying the STATS_DIRECTORIES constant

  • Allow the selected environment to define RAILS_DEFAULT_LOGGER, and have Rails::Initializer use it if it exists.

  • Moved all the shared tasks from Rakefile into Rails, so that the Rakefile is empty and doesn't require updating.

  • Added Rails::Initializer and Rails::Configuration to abstract all of the common setup out of config/environment.rb (uses config/boot.rb to bootstrap the initializer and paths)

  • Fixed the scaffold generator to fail right away if the database isn't accessible instead of in mid-air #1169 Chad Fowler

  • Corrected project-local generator location in scripts.rb #2010 Michael Schuerig

  • Don't require the environment just to clear the logs #2093 Scott Barron

  • Make the default rakefile read *.rake files from config/tasks (for easy extension of the rakefile by e.g. generators)

  • Only load breakpoint in development mode and when BREAKPOINT_SERVER_PORT is defined.

  • Allow the --toggle-spin switch on process/reaper to be negated

  • Replace render_partial with render :partial in scaffold generator Nicholas Seckar

  • Added -w flag to ps in process/reaper #1934 Scott Barron

  • Allow ERb in the database.yml file (just like with fixtures), so you can pull out the database configuration in environment variables #1822 Duane Johnson

  • Added convenience controls for FCGI processes (especially when managed remotely): spinner, spawner, and reaper. They reside in script/process. More details can be had by calling them with -h/--help.

  • Added load_fixtures task to the Rakefile, which will load all the fixtures into the database for the current environment #1791 Marcel Molina Jr.

  • Added an empty robots.txt to public/, so that web servers asking for it won't trigger a dynamic call, like favicon.ico #1738 Michael Schubert

  • Dropped the 'immediate close-down' of FCGI processes since it didn't work consistently and produced bad responses when it didn't. So now a TERM ensures exit after the next request (just as if the process is handling a request when it receives the signal). This means that you'll have to 'nudge' all FCGI processes with a request in order to ensure that they have all reloaded. This can be done by something like ./script/process/repear --nudge 'http://www.myapp.com' --instances 10, which will load the myapp site 10 times (and thus hit all of the 10 FCGI processes once, enough to shut down).

0.13.1 (11 July, 2005)

  • Look for app-specific generators in RAILS_ROOT/generators rather than the clunky old RAILS_ROOT/script/generators. Nobody really uses this feature except for the unit tests, so it's a negligible-impact change. If you want to work with third-party generators, drop them in ~/.rails/generators or simply install gems.

  • Fixed that each request with the WEBrick adapter would open a new database connection #1685 Sam Stephenson

  • Added support for SQL Server in the database rake tasks #1652 [Ken Barker] Note: osql and scptxfr may need to be installed on your development environment. This involves getting the .exes and a .rll (scptxfr) from a production SQL Server (not developer level SQL Server). Add their location to your Environment PATH and you are all set.

  • Added a VERSION parameter to the migrate task that allows you to do "rake migrate VERSION=34" to migrate to the 34th version traveling up or down depending on the current version

  • Extend Ruby version check to include RUBY_RELEASE_DATE >= '2005-12-25', the final Ruby 1.8.2 release #1674 court3nay

  • Improved documentation for environment config files #1625 court3nay

0.13.0 (6 July, 2005)

  • Changed the default logging level in config/environment.rb to INFO for production (so SQL statements won't be logged)

  • Added migration generator: ./script/generate migration add_system_settings

  • Added "migrate" as rake task to execute all the pending migrations from db/migrate

  • Fixed that model generator would make fixtures plural, even if ActiveRecord::Base.pluralize_table_names was false #1185 Marcel Molina Jr.

  • Added a DOCTYPE of HTML transitional to the HTML files generated by Rails #1124 Michael Koziarski

  • SIGTERM also gracefully exits dispatch.fcgi. Ignore SIGUSR1 on Windows.

  • Add the option to manually manage garbage collection in the FastCGI dispatcher. Set the number of requests between GC runs in your public/dispatch.fcgi Stefan Kaes

  • Allow dynamic application reloading for dispatch.fcgi processes by sending a SIGHUP. If the process is currently handling a request, the request will be allowed to complete first. This allows production fcgi's to be reloaded without having to restart them.

  • RailsFCGIHandler (dispatch.fcgi) no longer tries to explicitly flush $stdout (CgiProcess#out always calls flush)

  • Fixed rakefile actions against PostgreSQL when the password is all numeric #1462 Michael Schubert

  • ActionMailer::Base subclasses are reloaded with the other rails components #1262

  • Made the WEBrick adapter not use a mutex around action performance if ActionController::Base.allow_concurrency is true (default is false)

  • Fixed that mailer generator generated fixtures/plural while units expected fixtures/singular #1457 Scott Barron

  • Added a 'whiny nil' that's aim to ensure that when users pass nil to methods where that isn't appropriate, instead of NoMethodError? and the name of some method used by the framework users will see a message explaining what type of object was expected. Only active in test and development environments by default #1209 Michael Koziarski

  • Fixed the test_helper.rb to be safe for requiring controllers from multiple spots, like app/controllers/article_controller.rb and app/controllers/admin/article_controller.rb, without reloading the environment twice #1390 Nicholas Seckar

  • Fixed Webrick to escape + characters in URL's the same way that lighttpd and apache do #1397 Nicholas Seckar

  • Added -e/--environment option to script/runner #1408 François Beausoleil

  • Modernize the scaffold generator to use the simplified render and test methods and to change style from @params["id"] to params[:id]. #1367

  • Added graceful exit from pressing CTRL-C during the run of the rails command #1150 Caleb Tennis

  • Allow graceful exits for dispatch.fcgi processes by sending a SIGUSR1. If the process is currently handling a request, the request will be allowed to complete and then will terminate itself. If a request is not being handled, the process is terminated immediately (via #exit). This basically works like restart graceful on Apache. Jamis Buck

  • Made dispatch.fcgi more robust by catching fluke errors and retrying unless its a permanent condition. Jamis Buck

  • Added console --profile for profiling an IRB session #1154 Jeremy Kemper

  • Changed console_sandbox into console --sandbox #1154 Jeremy Kemper

0.12.1 (20th April, 2005)

  • Upgraded to Active Record 1.10.1, Action Pack 1.8.1, Action Mailer 0.9.1, Action Web Service 0.7.1

0.12.0 (19th April, 2005)

  • Fixed that purge_test_database would use database settings from the development environment when recreating the test database #1122 rails@cogentdude.com

  • Added script/benchmarker to easily benchmark one or more statement a number of times from within the environment. Examples:

    # runs the one statement 10 times
    script/benchmarker 10 'Person.expensive_method(10)'
    
    # pits the two statements against each other with 50 runs each
    script/benchmarker 50 'Person.expensive_method(10)' 'Person.cheap_method(10)'
    
  • Added script/profiler to easily profile a single statement from within the environment. Examples:

    script/profiler 'Person.expensive_method(10)'
    script/profiler 'Person.expensive_method(10)' 10 # runs the statement 10 times
    
  • Added Rake target clear_logs that'll truncate all the .log files in log/ to zero #1079 *Lucas Carlson

  • Added lazy typing for generate, such that ./script/generate cn == ./script/generate controller and the likes #1051 k@v2studio.com

  • Fixed that ownership is brought over in pg_dump during tests for PostgreSQL #1060 pburleson

  • Upgraded to Active Record 1.10.0, Action Pack 1.8.0, Action Mailer 0.9.0, Action Web Service 0.7.0, Active Support 1.0.4

0.11.1 (27th March, 2005)

  • Fixed the dispatch.fcgi use of a logger

  • Upgraded to Active Record 1.9.1, Action Pack 1.7.0, Action Mailer 0.8.1, Action Web Service 0.6.2, Active Support 1.0.3

0.11.0 (22th March, 2005)

  • Removed SCRIPT_NAME from the WEBrick environment to prevent conflicts with PATH_INFO #896 Nicholas Seckar

  • Removed ?$1 from the dispatch.f/cgi redirect line to get rid of 'complete/path/from/request.html' => nil being in the @params now that the ENV["REQUEST_URI"] is used to determine the path #895 dblack/Nicholas Seckar

  • Added additional error handling to the FastCGI dispatcher to catch even errors taking down the entire process

  • Improved the generated scaffold code a lot to take advantage of recent Rails developments #882 Tobias Lütke

  • Combined the script/environment.rb used for gems and regular files version. If vendor/rails/* has all the frameworks, then files version is used, otherwise gems #878 Nicholas Seckar

  • Changed .htaccess to allow dispatch.* to be called from a sub-directory as part of the push with Action Pack to make Rails work on non-vhost setups #826 Nicholas Seckar/Tobias Lütke

  • Added script/runner which can be used to run code inside the environment by eval'ing the first parameter. Examples:

    ./script/runner 'ReminderService.deliver'
    ./script/runner 'Mailer.receive(STDIN.read)'
    

    This makes it easier to do CRON and postfix scripts without actually making a script just to trigger 1 line of code.

  • Fixed webrick_server cookie handling to allow multiple cookes to be set at once #800, #813 dave@cherryville.org

  • Fixed the Rakefile's interaction with postgresql to:

    1. Use PGPASSWORD and PGHOST in the environment to fix prompting for
       passwords when connecting to a remote db and local socket connections.
    2. Add a '-x' flag to pg_dump which stops it dumping privileges #807 [rasputnik]
    3. Quote the user name and use template0 when dumping so the functions doesn't get dumped too #855 [pburleson]
    4. Use the port if available #875 [madrobby]
    
  • Upgraded to Active Record 1.9.0, Action Pack 1.6.0, Action Mailer 0.8.0, Action Web Service 0.6.1, Active Support 1.0.2

0.10.1 (7th March, 2005)

  • Fixed rake stats to ignore editor backup files like model.rb~ #791 Sebastian Kanthak

  • Added exception shallowing if the DRb server can't be started (not worth making a fuss about to distract new users) #779 Tobias Lütke

  • Added an empty favicon.ico file to the public directory of new applications (so the logs are not spammed by its absence)

  • Fixed that scaffold generator new template should use local variable instead of instance variable #778 Dan Peterson

  • Allow unit tests to run on a remote server for PostgreSQL #781 adamm@galacticasoftware.com

  • Added web_service generator (run ./script/generate web_service for help) #776 Leon Bredt

  • Added app/apis and components to code statistics report #729 Scott Barron

  • Fixed WEBrick server to use ABSOLUTE_RAILS_ROOT instead of working_directory #687 Nicholas Seckar

  • Fixed rails_generator to be usable without RubyGems #686 Cristi BALAN

  • Fixed -h/--help for generate and destroy generators #331

  • Added begin/rescue around the FCGI dispatcher so no uncaught exceptions can bubble up to kill the process (logs to log/fastcgi.crash.log)

  • Fixed that association#count would produce invalid sql when called sequentialy #659 kanis@comcard.de

  • Fixed test/mocks/testing to the correct test/mocks/test #740

  • Added early failure if the Ruby version isn't 1.8.2 or above #735

  • Removed the obsolete -i/--index option from the WEBrick servlet #743

  • Upgraded to Active Record 1.8.0, Action Pack 1.5.1, Action Mailer 0.7.1, Action Web Service 0.6.0, Active Support 1.0.1

0.10.0 (24th February, 2005)

  • Changed default IP binding for WEBrick from 127.0.0.1 to 0.0.0.0 so that the server is accessible both locally and remotely #696 Marcel Molina Jr.

  • Fixed that script/server -d was broken so daemon mode couldn't be used #687 Nicholas Seckar

  • 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
    
  • Added support for independent components residing in /components. Example:

    Controller: components/list/items_controller.rb
    (holds a List::ItemsController class with uses_component_template_root called)
    
    Model     : components/list/item.rb
    (namespace is still shared, so an Item model in app/models will take precedence)
    
    Views     : components/list/items/show.rhtml
    
  • Added --sandbox option to script/console that'll roll back all changes made to the database when you quit #672 Jeremy Kemper

  • Added 'recent' as a rake target that'll run tests for files that changed in the last 10 minutes #612 Jeremy Kemper

  • Changed script/console to default to development environment and drop --no-inspect #650 Jeremy Kemper

  • Added that the 'fixture :posts' syntax can be used for has_and_belongs_to_many fixtures where a model doesn't exist #572 Jeremy Kemper

  • Added that running test_units and test_functional now performs the clone_structure_to_test as well #566 rasputnik

  • Added new generator framework that informs about its doings on generation and enables updating and destruction of generated artifacts. See the new script/destroy and script/update for more details #487 Jeremy Kemper

  • Added Action Web Service as a new add-on framework for Action Pack Leon Bredt

  • Added Active Support as an independent utility and standard library extension bundle

  • Upgraded to Active Record 1.7.0, Action Pack 1.5.0, Action Mailer 0.7.0

0.9.5 (January 25th, 2005)

  • Fixed dependency reloading by switching to a remove_const approach where all Active Records, Active Record Observers, and Action Controllers are reloading by undefining their classes. This enables you to remove methods in all three types and see the change reflected immediately and it fixes #539. This also means that only those three types of classes will benefit from the const_missing and reloading approach. If you want other classes (like some in lib/) to reload, you must use require_dependency to do it.

  • Added Florian Gross' latest version of Breakpointer and friends that fixes a variaty of bugs #441 Florian Gross

  • Fixed skeleton Rakefile to work with sqlite3 out of the box #521 rasputnik

  • Fixed that script/breakpointer didn't get the Ruby path rewritten as the other scripts #523 brandt@kurowski.net

  • Fixed handling of syntax errors in models that had already been succesfully required once in the current interpreter

  • Fixed that models that weren't referenced in associations weren't being reloaded in the development mode by reinstating the reload

  • Fixed that generate scaffold would produce bad functional tests

  • Fixed that FCGI can also display SyntaxErrors

  • Upgraded to Active Record 1.6.0, Action Pack 1.4.0

0.9.4.1 (January 18th, 2005)

  • Added 5-second timeout to WordNet alternatives on creating reserved-word models #501 Marcel Molina Jr.

  • Fixed binding of caller #496 Alexey

  • Upgraded to Active Record 1.5.1, Action Pack 1.3.1, Action Mailer 0.6.1

0.9.4 (January 17th, 2005)

  • Added that ApplicationController will catch a ControllerNotFound exception if someone attempts to access a url pointing to an unexisting controller Tobias Lütke

  • Flipped code-to-test ratio around to be more readable #468 Scott Baron

  • Fixed log file permissions to be 666 instead of 777 (so they're not executable) #471 Lucas Carlson

  • Fixed that auto reloading would some times not work or would reload the models twice #475 Tobias Lütke

  • Added rewrite rules to deal with caching to public/.htaccess

  • Added the option to specify a controller name to "generate scaffold" and made the default controller name the plural form of the model.

  • Added that rake clone_structure_to_test, db_structure_dump, and purge_test_database tasks now pick up the source database to use from RAILS_ENV instead of just forcing development #424 Tobias Lütke

  • Fixed script/console to work with Windows (that requires the use of irb.bat) #418 Chris McGrath

  • Fixed WEBrick servlet slowdown over time by restricting the load path reloading to mod_ruby

  • Removed Fancy Indexing as a default option on the WEBrick servlet as it made it harder to use various caching schemes

  • Upgraded to Active Record 1.5, Action Pack 1.3, Action Mailer 0.6

0.9.3 (January 4th, 2005)

  • Added support for SQLite in the auto-dumping/importing of schemas for development -> test #416

  • Added automated rewriting of the shebang lines on installs through the gem rails command #379 Manfred Stienstra

  • Added ActionMailer::Base.deliver_method = :test to the test environment so that mail objects are available in ActionMailer::Base.deliveries for functional testing.

  • Added protection for creating a model through the generators with a name of an existing class, like Thread or Date. It'll even offer you a synonym using wordnet.princeton.edu as a look-up. No, I'm not kidding :) Florian Gross

  • Fixed dependency management to happen in a unified fashion for Active Record and Action Pack using the new Dependencies module. This means that the environment options needs to change from:

    Before in development.rb:
      ActionController::Base.reload_dependencies = true  
      ActiveRecord::Base.reload_associations     = true
    
    Now in development.rb:
      Dependencies.mechanism = :load
    
    Before in production.rb and test.rb:
      ActionController::Base.reload_dependencies = false
      ActiveRecord::Base.reload_associations     = false
    
    Now in production.rb and test.rb:
      Dependencies.mechanism = :require
    
  • Fixed problems with dependency caching and controller hierarchies on Ruby 1.8.2 in development mode #351

  • Fixed that generated action_mailers doesnt need to require the action_mailer since thats already done in the environment #382 Lucas Carlson

  • Upgraded to Action Pack 1.2.0 and Active Record 1.4.0

0.9.2

  • Fixed CTRL-C exists from the Breakpointer to be a clean affair without error dumping Kent Sibilev

  • Fixed "rake stats" to work with sub-directories in models and controllers and to report the code to test ration Scott Baron

  • Added that Active Record associations are now reloaded instead of cleared to work with the new const_missing hook in Active Record.

  • Added graceful handling of an inaccessible log file by redirecting output to STDERR with a warning #330 rainmkr

  • Added support for a -h/--help parameter in the generator #331 Ulysses

  • Fixed that File.expand_path in config/environment.rb would fail when dealing with symlinked public directories mjobin

  • Upgraded to Action Pack 1.1.0 and Active Record 1.3.0

0.9.1

  • Upgraded to Action Pack 1.0.1 for important bug fix

  • Updated gem dependencies

0.9.0

  • Renamed public/dispatch.servlet to script/server -- it wasn't really dispatching anyway as its delegating calls to public/dispatch.rb

  • Renamed AbstractApplicationController and abstract_application.rb to ApplicationController and application.rb, so that it will be possible for the framework to automatically pick up on app/views/layouts/application.rhtml and app/helpers/application.rb

  • Added script/console that makes it even easier to start an IRB session for interacting with the domain model. Run with no-args to see help.

  • Added breakpoint support through the script/breakpointer client. This means that you can break out of execution at any point in the code, investigate and change the model, AND then resume execution! Example:

    class WeblogController < ActionController::Base
      def index
        @posts = Post.find_all
        breakpoint "Breaking out from the list"
      end
    end
    

    So the controller will accept the action, run the first line, then present you with a IRB prompt in the breakpointer window. Here you can do things like:

    Executing breakpoint "Breaking out from the list" at .../webrick_server.rb:16 in 'breakpoint'

    >> @posts.inspect
    => "[#<Post:0x14a6be8 @attributes={\"title\"=>nil, \"body\"=>nil, \"id\"=>\"1\"}>,
         #<Post:0x14a6620 @attributes={\"title\"=>\"Rails you know!\", \"body\"=>\"Only ten..\", \"id\"=>\"2\"}>]"
    >> @posts.first.title = "hello from a breakpoint"
    => "hello from a breakpoint"
    

    ...and even better is that you can examine how your runtime objects actually work:

    >> f = @posts.first
    => #<Post:0x13630c4 @attributes={"title"=>nil, "body"=>nil, "id"=>"1"}>
    >> f.
    Display all 152 possibilities? (y or n)
    

    Finally, when you're ready to resume execution, you press CTRL-D

  • Changed environments to be configurable through an environment variable. By default, the environment is "development", but you can change that and set your own by configuring the Apache vhost with a string like (mod_env must be available on the server):

    SetEnv RAILS_ENV production
    

    ...if you're using WEBrick, you can pick the environment to use with the command-line parameters -e/--environment, like this:

    ruby public/dispatcher.servlet -e production
    
  • Added a new default environment called "development", which leaves the production environment to be tuned exclusively for that.

  • Added a start_server in the root of the Rails application to make it even easier to get started

  • Fixed public/.htaccess to use RewriteBase and share the same rewrite rules for all the dispatch methods

  • Fixed webrick_server to handle requests in a serialized manner (the Rails reloading infrastructure is not thread-safe)

  • Added support for controllers in directories. So you can have:

    app/controllers/account_controller.rb        # URL: /account/
    app/controllers/admin/account_controller.rb  # URL: /admin/account/
    

    NOTE: You need to update your public/.htaccess with the new rules to pick it up

  • Added reloading for associations and dependencies under cached environments like FastCGI and mod_ruby. This makes it possible to use those environments for development. This is turned on by default, but can be turned off with ActiveRecord::Base.reload_associations = false and ActionController::Base.reload_dependencies = false in production environments.

  • Added support for sub-directories in app/models. So now you can have something like Basecamp with:

    app/models/accounting
    app/models/project
    app/models/participants
    app/models/settings
    

    It's poor man's namespacing, but only for file-system organization. You still require files just like before. Nothing changes inside the files themselves.

  • Fixed a few references in the tests generated by new_mailer Jeremy Kemper

  • Added support for mocks in testing with test/mocks

  • Cleaned up the environments a bit and added global constant RAILS_ROOT

0.8.5 (9)

  • Made dev-util available to all tests, so you can insert breakpoints in any test case to get an IRB prompt at that point [Jeremy Kemper]:

    def test_complex_stuff
      @david.projects << @new_project
      breakpoint "Let's have a closer look at @david"
    end
    

    You need to install dev-utils yourself for this to work ("gem install dev-util").

  • Added shared generator behavior so future upgrades should be possible without manually copying over files Jeremy Kemper

  • Added the new helper style to both controller and helper templates Jeremy Kemper

  • Added new_crud generator for creating a model and controller at the same time with explicit scaffolding Jeremy Kemper

  • Added configuration of Test::Unit::TestCase.fixture_path to test_helper to concide with the new AR fixtures style

  • Fixed that new_model was generating singular table/fixture names

  • Upgraded to Action Mailer 0.4.0

  • Upgraded to Action Pack 0.9.5

  • Upgraded to Active Record 1.1.0

0.8.0 (15)

  • Removed custom_table_name option for new_model now that the Inflector is as powerful as it is

  • Changed the default rake action to just do testing and separate API generation and coding statistics into a "doc" task.

  • Fixed WEBrick dispatcher to handle missing slashes in the URLs gracefully alexey

  • Added user option for all postgresql tool calls in the rakefile elvstone

  • Fixed problem with running "ruby public/dispatch.servlet" instead of "cd public; ruby dispatch.servlet" alexey

  • Fixed WEBrick server so that it no longer hardcodes the ruby interpreter used to "ruby" but will get the one used based on the Ruby runtime configuration. Marcel Molina Jr.

  • Fixed Dispatcher so it'll route requests to magic_beans to MagicBeansController/magic_beans_controller.rb Caio Chassot

  • "new_controller MagicBeans" and "new_model SubscriptionPayments" will now both behave properly as they use the new Inflector.

  • Fixed problem with MySQL foreign key constraint checks in Rake :clone_production_structure_to_test target Andreas Schwarz

  • Changed WEBrick server to by default be auto-reloading, which is slower but makes source changes instant. Class compilation cache can be turned on with "-c" or "--cache-classes".

  • Added "-b/--binding" option to WEBrick dispatcher to bind the server to a specific IP address (default: 127.0.0.1) Kevin Temp

  • dispatch.fcgi now DOESN'T set FCGI_PURE_RUBY as it was slowing things down for now reason Andreas Schwarz

  • Added new_mailer generator to work with Action Mailer

  • Included new framework: Action Mailer 0.3

  • Upgraded to Action Pack 0.9.0

  • Upgraded to Active Record 1.0.0

0.7.0

  • Added an optional second argument to the new_model script that allows the programmer to specify the table name, which will used to generate a custom table_name method in the model and will also be used in the creation of fixtures. Kevin Radloff

  • script/new_model now turns AccountHolder into account_holder instead of accountholder Kevin Radloff

  • Fixed the faulty handleing of static files with WEBrick Andreas Schwarz

  • Unified function_test_helper and unit_test_helper into test_helper

  • Fixed bug with the automated production => test database dropping on PostgreSQL dhawkins

  • create_fixtures in both the functional and unit test helper now turns off the log during fixture generation and can generate more than one fixture at a time. Which makes it possible for assignments like:

    @people, @projects, @project_access, @companies, @accounts =
      create_fixtures "people", "projects", "project_access", "companies", "accounts"
    
  • Upgraded to Action Pack 0.8.5 (locally-scoped variables, partials, advanced send_file)

  • Upgraded to Active Record 0.9.5 (better table_name guessing, cloning, find_all_in_collection)

0.6.5

  • No longer specifies a template for rdoc, so it'll use whatever is default (you can change it in the rakefile)

  • The new_model generator will now use the same rules for plural wordings as Active Record (so Category will give categories, not categorys) Kevin Radloff

  • dispatch.fcgi now sets FCGI_PURE_RUBY to true to ensure that it's the Ruby version that's loaded danp

  • Made the GEM work with Windows

  • Fixed bug where mod_ruby would "forget" the load paths added when switching between controllers

  • PostgreSQL are now supported for the automated production => test database dropping Kevin Radloff

  • Errors thrown by the dispatcher are now properly handled in FCGI.

  • Upgraded to Action Pack 0.8.0 (lots and lots and lots of fixes)

  • Upgraded to Active Record 0.9.4 (a bunch of fixes)

0.6.0

  • Added AbstractionApplicationController as a superclass for all controllers generated. This class can be used to carry filters and methods that are to be shared by all. It has an accompanying ApplicationHelper that all controllers will also automatically have available.

  • Added environments that can be included from any script to get the full Active Record and Action Controller context running. This can be used by maintenance scripts or to interact with the model through IRB. Example:

    require 'config/environments/production'
    
    for account in Account.find_all
      account.recalculate_interests
    end
    

    A short migration script for an account model that had it's interest calculation strategy changed.

  • Accessing the index of a controller with "/weblog" will now redirect to "/weblog/" (only on Apache, not WEBrick)

  • Simplified the default Apache config so even remote requests are served off CGI as a default. You'll now have to do something specific to activate mod_ruby and FCGI (like using the force urls). This should make it easier for new comers that start on an external server.

  • Added more of the necessary Apache options to .htaccess to make it easier to setup

  • Upgraded to Action Pack 0.7.9 (lots of fixes)

  • Upgraded to Active Record 0.9.3 (lots of fixes)

0.5.7

  • Fixed bug in the WEBrick dispatcher that prevented it from getting parameters from the URL (through GET requests or otherwise)

  • Added lib in root as a place to store app specific libraries

  • Added lib and vendor to load_path, so anything store within can be loaded directly. Hence lib/redcloth.rb can be loaded with require "redcloth"

  • Upgraded to Action Pack 0.7.8 (lots of fixes)

  • Upgraded to Active Record 0.9.2 (minor upgrade)

0.5.6

  • Upgraded to Action Pack 0.7.7 (multipart form fix)

  • Updated the generated template stubs to valid XHTML files

  • Ensure that controllers generated are capitalized, so "new_controller TodoLists" gives the same as "new_controller Todolists" and "new_controller todolists".

0.5.5

  • Works on Windows out of the box! (Dropped symlinks)

  • Added webrick dispatcher: Try "ruby public/dispatch.servlet --help" Florian Gross
