A Fresh Cup is Mike Gunderloy's software development weblog, covering Ruby on Rails and whatever else I find interesting in the universe of software. I'm a full-time software developer: most of my time in recent years has been spent writing Rails, though I've dabbled in many other things and like most people who have been writing code for decades I can learn new stuff as needed.

Currently I'm employed as the Vice President of Engineering at Faria Education Group. If you're interested in working with me, we're often hiring smart developers. Drop me a comment if you're interested or email MikeG1 [at] larkfarm.com.

Double Shot #320

Rails 2.2RC1 is out. Here's the official announcement. And here are the Ruby on Rails 2.2 Release Notes - of which I am rather fond, because I wrote the bulk of them.

Some other Rails 2.2 stuff:

  • Ruby on Rails 2.2 - The Rails Envy guys want to sell you PDF and videocast guides to the new features.

  • What's New in Edge Rails: Rails 2.2 Released - Summary of Features</a> and What's New in Edge Rails: Even Better Conditional GET Support - Coverage from Ryan Daigle.

  • And more general links:

  • "raise NoMethodError" raises NoMethodError. Raise it with
    NoMethodError.new instead.
    - My first commit to the core Rails code. Hopefully not the last.

  • Good Homes Wanted - A batch of Rails and Ruby projects looking for new maintainers, including some fairly prominent ones.

  • SIPr - SIP stack written in Ruby. If only I had time to play with VOIP stuff...

  • REST: Some tips and implementing "Forgot your password?" - Some ideas about RESTful design.

  • Thinking Sphinx - New PDF from PeepCode.

  • GitHub Rebase #1 - Nick Quaranto is starting a new series to look at activity over on GitHub.

  • How to Spot a Help Vampire - Wisdom from #rubyonrails.
  • Reader Comments (2)

    Any reason why Prototype has only been bumped to, when is already out?
