List of rails deprecations?


#1

Is there a comprehensive list of deprecated methods and arguments for
rails? I know there have been some shifts over the past year (the render
methods, find methods, etc.) but thought I might have missed some. I
looked in the usual places (wiki, docs) but didn’t see much.

Maybe there’s some way I can generate this information from the
documentation or the changelogs?

Here’s a start:
% ls
actionmailer/ actionpack/ actionwebservice/ activerecord/
activesupport/ railties/
% grep -r deprecated *|grep -v svn|grep -v CHANGELOG
(85 lines snipped)

Thanks, this pointed me in the right direction. Here’s what I found most
useful.

All mentions of deprecation in the various CHANGELOG files:

% grep -ir deprecat .|grep -v svn|grep CHANGELOG
(18 lines)

All mentions of deprecation in the source code:

% grep -ir deprecat .|grep -v svn|grep -v CHANGELOG
(125 lines)

I added the -i flag for case insensitivity, and shortened the string to
search for to “deprecat” to find related words. I ran these on the
latest revision pulled down from the svn repository at
dev.rubyonrails.org/svn/rails/trunk.
