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 unemployed and starting to look around for my next opportunity as a senior manager, team lead, or lead developer. 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?
