Rspec 2.7.0 is released!

We’re pleased to announce the release of rspec-2.7.0. Release notes for
each
gem are listed below, but here are a couple of highlights:

Just type rspec

With the the 2.7.0 release, if you keep all of your specs in the
conventional
spec directory, you don’t need to follow the rspec command with a
path.
Just type rspec.

If you keep your specs in a different directory, just set the
--default_path
option to that directory on the command line, or in a .rspec config
file.

The rake task now lets Bundler manage Bundler

The RSpec::Core::RakeTask invokes the rspec command in a subshell.
In
recent releases, it assumed that you wanted it prefixed with bundle exec if
it saw a Gemfile. We then added gemfile and skip_bundler options
to the
task, so you could manage this in different ways.

It turns out that Bundler manages this quite well without any help from
RSpec.
If you activate Bundler in the parent shell, via the command line or
Bundler.setup, it sets environment variables that activate Bundler in
the
subshell with the correct gemfile.

The gemfile and skip_bundler options are therefore deprecated and
have no
effect.

Release Notes

rspec-core-2.7.0

full
changelog

NOTE: RSpec’s release policy dictates that there should not be any
backward
incompatible changes in minor releases, but we’re making an exception to
release a change to how RSpec interacts with other command line tools.

As of 2.7.0, you must explicity require "rspec/autorun" unless you use
the
rspec command (which already does this for you).
