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 #23

Week of May 28 -June 3, 2012

It was a fairly quiet week on the Rails front. Well, if you don't count multiple non-edge dot releases for security fixes.

  • f9cb645d lets you use a block with Active Record counts: Person.where("age > 26").count { |person| gender == 'female' }.
  • 5db367a7 changes the default Gemfile template to use 1.9 hash syntax, which I think is ugly as sin in this case. gem 'capistrano', group: :development. I hate the stuttering colons.
  • rake stats reports on code lines in Javascript and CoffeeScript files with a48b3f1a.
  • 806d023b adds Rails 4.0 release notes to the tree - a sign that things are moving along, I suspect.
