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 #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.
