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.

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.
