Rails 1.1


#1

It was said at one time that Rails 1.1 might be released in February. Is
that still likely?

Thanks,

Is there by any chance some document available summarizing all the
(major) beautiful new stuff in Rails 1.1?

Well, since tomorrow is the last day of February, I wouldn’t hold my
breath. However, there has been a flurry of activity on the core
mailing list this weekend. Rails 1.1 draweth neigh…

My question originally used the word “listing”, but I replaced it with
“summarizing” because I expected that kind of reply. Thanks for not
disappointing.

So I take it the answer is “no”?

Here is an approximately 75% less annoying answer for you.

The individual rails “components” have ChangeLogs that describe what has
changed since the last “official” release. You can have a look online
at:

http://dev.rubyonrails.com/svn/rails/trunk/actionmailer/CHANGELOG
http://dev.rubyonrails.com/svn/rails/trunk/actionpack/CHANGELOG
http://dev.rubyonrails.com/svn/rails/trunk/actionwebservice/CHANGELOG
http://dev.rubyonrails.com/svn/rails/trunk/activerecord/CHANGELOG
http://dev.rubyonrails.com/svn/rails/trunk/railties/CHANGELOG

It might be a fun project to write some code to parse these files
including
everything above a line that doesn’t have * (date of some kind) * and
merge
them into a single file for consumption, or maybe that is the kind of
fun
only a masochist programmer would enjoy :slight_smile:

similar.

Hendrik, you may count on a “New in 1.1” update along with its release.

I know. I was hoping for kind of a preview, since I know there are
people out there who’ve been working with HEAD and are somewhat
up-to-date on what awaits us in 1.1.

I know that no one knows the date, but does anyone know if we’re getting
close to a release?

I’m aware of the availability of full changelogs. I did actually use
the word “summary” on purpose.

Yes, we are… but you’re right, no man knows the day nor the hour …

Well, I’m not a guru by any stretch, but I know that at least as far
as active record is concerned two big things are polymorphic
associations and the :through option on associations. I’m pretty
sure that both of these features are explained in the wiki. You may
want to have a pre-release look :slight_smile:
