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 #25

Week of June 11 -June 17, 2012

This week saw the first commits designed to handle Ruby 2.0 compatability - a rather scary thought.

  • 02b2335 modifies the connection pool to make sure that the thread that has been waiting the longest gets the next available connection.
  • a7f4b0a1 is one of those changes that's going to affect every application I've ever written: it removes update_attribute in favor of update_column.
  • PostgreSQL's native uuid data type is supported with 12e9a75f.
  • 75714082 merges a bunch of changes to get logic out of the various rake db tasks, and encapsulated into classes and objects.
