RSpec-2.0.0 has been released!
This marks the end of a year-long effort that improves RSpec in a number
of ways, including modularity, cleaner code, and much better integration
with Rails-3 than was possible before (see
Docs, with a little bit of relish
In addition to the documentation available at all the places (see
also got all of the Cucumber features posted to Justin Ko’s new Cucumber
presentation app, relish.
We’ll also have the RDoc up on http://rdoc.info in a day or so.

Extra special thanks go to:
- Chad H. for contributing his Micronaut gem which is the basis
- Yehuda K., Carl L., and José Valim, for their assistance with
getting rspec-rails-2 to take advantage of new APIs in Rails-3, and for
shepherding patches to Rails that made it far simpler for testing
extensions like rspec-rails to hook into Rails’ testing infrastructure.
Their work here has significantly reduced the risk that Rails
point-releases will break rspec-rails.
- Myron M. for a wealth of thoughtful contributions including
Cucumber features that we can all learn from
- Justin Ko for his direct contributions to rspec, and for relish
(http://relishapp.com/), which makes executable documentation act more
rspec-rails-2 for rails-2
There are a couple of projects floating around that support rspec-2 and
rails-2. I haven’t had the chance to review any of these myself, but my
hope is that we’ll have be an official rspec-2 for rails-2 gem in the
rspec-1 will continue to get maintenance releases, but these will be
restricted, primarily, to bug fixes. Any new features will go into
rspec-2, and will likely not be back-ported.
