Does this mean that previously routes with a trailing slash were not recognized properly?

It means that it worked up to and including 2.2.2, was broken in 2.3.0 RC1, and is now fixed again.

Does this mean 2 different urls for the same resource?… I mean, It’s a bot going to index those urls as duplicated content?

@Wincent: that’s what I meant ;-) But thanks for clarifying. This explains some weirdness I’ve been experiencing with a Rails Edge project.

@Yizzreel: Depends entirely on the bot. Technically the URLs point to one and identical resource, so the URLs should be treated as the same, yes.

I’ve been reading a bit about this concern in Google’s webmaster tools. There’s an article in the help section about duplicated content
I’ll put an important note in this article

Be consistent: Try to keep your internal linking consistent. For example, don’t link to and and

This mean that and are not the same url, therefore are not the same resource, therefore are duplicated content.

However, this problem would be important only if you include both url formats in your application, and link helpers will always generate ‘/’-less urls

In my previous comment, the paragrapth “Be consistent: …” is extracted from google help section (I tried to use textile ‘bq. ’ but it doesn’t work)

If you’re concerned about two URLs pointing to the same resource, consider using the new canonical URL meta tag:
