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.

What's New in Edge Rails #41

Week of October 1 - October 7, 2012

The latest Rails performance brainstorm is turbolinks, which makes reloading just the page body the default for intra-application links. I'm skeptical, but it'll probably work out fine except for annoying and hard to track down edge-case breakage.

  • e35d8b18 turns turbolinks on by default for all new applications.
  • There's a new ActiveSupport::KeyGenerator that wraps PBKDF2 for use in making more secure keys. The merge is in 0a507925.
  • Action and Page caching have been extracted to separate gems; see c82cf81f for details.
  • rack-cache is no longer installed by default, though as ab4c0795 shows you can turn it on easily.
