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 #9

Week of February 12-February 18, 2012

Things are still moving along in the usual Rails fashion of incremental improvement.

  • There was a bunch of work on the internals of inflections, including d3071db1 which, if I'm reading it right, is a serious bit of optimization.
  • d6b26a6 adds date_field and date_field_tag helpers to create HTML5 date inputs.
  • 951b5820 makes it easy to run a class other that IRB as your Rails console - a boon for Pry users.
