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 #49

Weeks of December 3 - December 9, 2012

  • The venerable schema_migrations table gets some new metadata in 0a5afa22, including a fingerprint and timestamp.
  • f02d2185 builds on this to add full migration history to schema.rb.
  • Active Record can use NOT in relation building as of de75af7ac, so you can say things like Customer.where.not(:name => 'Joe'). (The original commit also included LIKE support, but that was removed in 8d02afea5).
  • 9d62e048 renames all action callbacks from *_filter to *_action. Seems like pointless jerking around to me, but whatever.
