When I add a method to a model spork already knows about (and reloads), the new method isn't recognized -- spork still sees that class as not having the method. However, spork picks up changes to existing methods.
This is with spork 0.9.0.rc9, rails 3 and ruby 1.9.2-p180.
Could not reproduce on 0.9.0.rc9, rails 3.1.1 ruby 1.9.2-p290. More info needed.
Spork is reloading models and new methods as it should.
I've added a bunch of spec_helpers examples here ajsharp:
Help me get one working for you to post there ;)
