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 #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.
