is a private method on Object
Update rubygems on Travis before running tests

Ensure FG runs against Rails 3.2.0
2.4.2 (January 18, 2012)
Fix inline traits' interaction with defaults on the factory
2.4.1 (January 17, 2012)
Deprecate build_stubbed and attributes_for
Fix inline traits
2.4.0 (January 13, 2012)

get defined
Explicitly require Ruby 1.8.7 or higher in gemspec
Fix documentation
Add Gemnasium status to documentation

2.3.2 (November 26, 2011)
Move logic of where! is set to Definition
Fix method name from aliases_for? to alias_for?
Refactor internal attribute handling to use an anonymous class instead of
faking Ruby's variable resolution. This allows for more sane usage of
attributes without having to manage sorting priority because attributes
can turn themselves into procs, which are used with define_method on a
class so attributes work correctly all the time.

Move around requiring of files
Consolidate errors into factory_girl.rb

Clean up RSpec suite to not use 'should'
Use create_list in step definitions
Syntax methods that deal with ORM interaction (attributes_for, build, build_stubbed,
and create) now accept a block that yields the result. This results in a
more convenient way to interact with the result than using Object.tap.
Standardize deprecation warnings
Update transient attribute syntax to use blocks instead of calling ignore on
each attribute declaration
Parents can be defined after children because factories are evaluated when
they're used; this means breaking up factories across multiple files will
behave as expected

handful of methods for a more clearly defined API

(fixes some issues with dependencies being loaded too early) (thanks to
