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 #52

Weeks of December 24 - December 30, 2012

After anticipating Rails 4 for a year, it feels close to me. I'd be amazed if we weren't playing with it by RailsConf.

  • 61b91c4c removes the /bin directory from the default .gitignore. Seldom has a one-line change generated so much heated discussion. My point of view? I never use the default .gitignore unchanged and neither should you. If you don't want to check in /bin, ignore it yourself.
  • f75addd0 introduces assert_not foo to replace assert !foo.
