The asset pipeline provides a framework to concatenate and minify or compress JavaScript and CSS assets. It also adds the ability to write these assets in other languages such as CoffeeScript, SCSS and ERB.

+Prior to Rails 3.1 these features were added through third-party Ruby libraries such as Jammit and Sprockets. Rails 3.1 is integrated with Sprockets through ActionPack which depends on the +sprockets+ gem, by default.
By having this as a core feature of Rails, all developers can benefit from the power of having their assets pre-processed, compressed and minified by one central library, Sprockets. This is part of Rails' "Fast by default" strategy as outlined by DHH in his 2011 keynote at Railsconf.

+h3. Upgrading from Old Versions of Rails
+
+There are two issues when upgrading. The first is moving the files to the new locations. See the section above for guidance on the correct locations for different file types.
+
+The second is updating the various environment files with the correct default options. The following changes reflect the defaults in version 3.1.0.
+
+In +application.rb+:
+
+<erb>
+# Enable the asset pipeline
+config.assets.enabled = true
+
+# Version of your assets, change this if you want to expire all your assets
+config.assets.version = '1.0'
+</erb>
+
+In +development.rb+:
+
+<erb>
+# Do not compress assets
+config.assets.compress = false
+
+# Expands the lines which load the assets
+config.assets.debug = true
+</erb>
+
+And in +production.rb+:
+
+<erb>
+# Compress JavaScripts and CSS
+config.assets.compress = true
+
+# Don't fallback to assets pipeline if a precompiled asset is missed
+config.assets.compile = false
+
+# Generate digests for assets URLs
+config.assets.digest = true
+
+# Defaults to Rails.root.join("public/assets")
+# config.assets.manifest = YOUR_PATH
+
+# Precompile additional assets (application.js, application.css, and all non-JS/CSS are already added)
+# config.assets.precompile += %w( search.js )
+</erb>
+
+There are no changes to +test.rb+.
