Enable partial updates by default
This kind of makes this commit (http://github.com/rails/rails/commit/888d5059bdb71e6d034d0c09d7e3b3e235fd8507) useless..
Yeah, I’m not sure how to read this either. Are partial updates on by default now?
Its likely that partial updates are not enabled by default for Rails 2.1, but if you stay on edge then they are enabled by default as per the commit message.
I think it needs stronger “opinion”. I like it on by default.
It’s on by default, if you have contention-heavy data and you’re not using optimistic locking at present you’re already breaking stuff.
The discussions which resulted in this happened face to face, sorry for the confusion :)
Thanks for the clarification. I think this is a good default, personally.
