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.

As of July 2016, I'm looking for my next job. I'm not able to relocate, so unless you're in the Evansville area, I'd need a completely remote gig. I have lots of experience working remote. Prefer full-time but I wouldn't be averse to an interesting contact gig. Drop me a comment if you've got something or email MikeG1 [at] larkfarm.com.

What's New in Edge Rails #58

Weeks of February 11 - February 25, 2013

  • 9d9b22f4 is another tweak to loading, reversing some earlier decisions. Autoload paths and eager load paths will be separate for Rails 4.0 after all.
  • c9909db9 drops XML parsing from ActionDispatch. If you need it, you can pick upt he new actionpack-xml_parser gem.
  • d3688e02 removes the auto-explain option for ActiveRecord. You can still call explicitly ActiveRecord::Relation#explain. I'll miss this, but I know most Rails folks prefer not to think about the database.
