Week of July 30 - August 5, 2012
The most sweeping change this week was actually on the 3.2 branch, where a bunch of deprecations were undone, in line with a new policy of not deprecating APIs in point releases.
- The column updating saga continues. 4ac81de5 removes the deprecation of update_column, so both it and update_columns will be supported in 4.0.
- 92641ef reverses the behavior of multiple calls to
.order("first_name ASC").order("last_name ASC")will generate
ORDER BY last_name ASC, first_name ASC.
- 7db0b073 makes the inflector locale-aware and multilingual. Now you can define separate pluralization rules for separate locales.
- 437851e adds
Relation#loadto force eager loading of records.
- Documentation for the new association API is available in 6fe11965.
