[ANN] Sinatra 1.1 released!

We are happy to announce that Sinatra 1.1 has just been released! This
release introduces a small number of new features and fixes for all
known bugs that came up since the 1.0. This release is expected to run
1.0 apps without changes and to work seamlessly with the latest releases
of Ruby, Rails and Rack.

To upgrade your version via rubygems, simply run:

gem install sinatra

And thanks of course to everyone who has reported bugs, suggested
features, wrote extensions or simply uses Sinatra.

It would not have been possible without you!

Everything that happened since 1.0, from the CHANGES:

  • Before and after filters now support pattern matching, including the
    ability to use captures: “before(’/user/:name’) { |name| … }”. This
    avoids manual path checking. No performance loss if patterns are
    avoided. (Konstantin Haase)

  • It is now possible to render SCSS files with the scss method, which
    behaves exactly like sass except for the different file extension and
    assuming the SCSS syntax. (Pedro Menezes, Konstantin Haase)

  • Added liquid, markdown, nokogiri, textile, rdoc, radius,
    markaby, and coffee rendering methods for rendering Liquid,
    Markdown, Nokogiri, Textile, RDoc, Radius, Markaby and CoffeeScript
    templates. (Konstantin Haase)

  • Now supports byte-range requests (the HTTP_RANGE header) for static
    files. Multi-range requests are not supported, however. (Jens A.)

  • You can now use #settings method from class and top level for
    convenience. (Konstantin Haase)

  • Setting multiple values now no longer relies on #to_hash and therefore
    accepts any Enumerable as parameter. (Simon R.)

  • Nested templates default the layout option to false rather than
    true. This eases the use of partials. If you wanted to render one haml
    template embedded in another, you had to call haml :partial, {}, :layout => false. As you almost never want the partial to be wrapped in
    the standard layout in this situation, you now only have to call haml :partial. Passing in layout explicitly is still possible. (Konstantin

  • If a the return value of one of the render functions is used as a
    response body and the content type has not been set explicitly, Sinatra
    chooses a content type corresponding to the rendering engine rather than
    just using “text/html”. (Konstantin Haase)

  • README is now available in Chinese (Wu Jiang), French (Mickael Riga),
    German (Bernhard Essl, Konstantin Haase, burningTyger), Hungarian (Janos
    Hardi) and Spanish (Gabriel Andretta). The extremely outdated Japanese
    README has been updated (Kouhei Y.).

  • It is now possible to access Sinatra’s template_cache from the
    outside. (Nick S.)

  • The last_modified method now also accepts DateTime instances and
    makes sure the header will always be set to a string. (Konstantin Haase)

  • 599 now is a legal status code. (Steve Shreeve)

  • This release is compatible with Ruby 1.9.2. Sinatra was trying to read
    non existent files Ruby added to the call stack. (Shota F.,
    Konstantin Haase)

  • Prevents a memory leak on 1.8.6 in production mode. Note, however,
    that this is due to a bug in 1.8.6 and request will have the additional
    overhead of parsing templates again on that version. It is recommended
    to use at least Ruby 1.8.7. (Konstantin Haase)

  • Compares last modified date correctly. last_modified was halting
    only when the ‘If-Modified-Since’ header date was equal to the time
    specified. Now, it halts when is equal or later than the time specified
    (Gabriel Andretta).

  • Sinatra is now usable in combination with Rails 3. When mounting a
    Sinatra application under a subpath in Rails 3, the PATH_INFO is not
    prefixed with a slash and no routes did match. (José Valim)

  • Better handling of encodings in 1.9, defaults params encoding to
    UTF-8. (Konstantin Haase)

  • show_exeptions handling is now triggered after custom error
    handlers, if it is set to :after_handlers, thus not disabling those
    handler in development mode. (pangel, Konstantin Haase)

  • Added ability to handle weighted HTTP_ACCEPT headers. (Davide

  • send_file now always respects the :type option if set. Previously
    it was discarded if no matching mime type was found, which made it
    impossible to directly pass a mime type. (Konstantin Haase)

  • redirect always redirects to an absolute URI, even if a relative URI
    was passed. Ensures compatibility with RFC 2616 section 14.30.
    (Jean-Philippe Garcia Ballester, Anthony Williams)

  • Broken examples for using Erubis, Haml and Test::Unit in README have
    been fixed. (Nick S., Doug Ireton, Jason S., Eric Marden)

  • Sinatra now handles SIGTERM correctly. (Patrick Collison)

  • Fixes an issue with inline templates in modular applications that
    manually call run!. (Konstantin Haase)

  • Spaces after inline template names are now ignored (Konstantin Haase)

  • It’s now possible to use Sinatra with different package management
    systems defining a custom require. (Konstantin Haase)

  • Lighthouse has been dropped in favor of GitHub issues.

  • Tilt is now a dependency and therefore no longer ships bundled with
    Sinatra. (Ryan T., Konstantin Haase)

  • Sinatra now depends on Rack 1.1 or higher. Rack 1.0 is no longer
    supported. (Konstantin Haase)
