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 #51

Weeks of December 17 - December 23, 2012

  • f6bbc3f5 adds app/models/concerns and app/controllers/concerns to the load path. This is the change that supports the officially blessed way to put fat models on a diet.
  • Rails supports the PostgreSQL int4range and int8range data types directly as of 9a4a095e.
  • Support for email obfuscation was removed from the mail_to helper in cf9d9450. There's a new actionview-encoded_mail_to gem if you still need it.
  • 86c5cea9 cleans up some of the documentation on controller-specific assets, a perennial source of confusion.
  • Built-in background jobs support was stripped out of master at f9da785d; it'll be worked on in a branch and won't ship with Rails 4.0.
