David spoke to me yesterday about this. We're going to be folding a
lot (but possibly/probably not all) of the functionality into Rails :)

AWESOME news!  Any idea what won't make the cut?  Asset management
stuff, perhaps?

After everything that's come before, that is great news! I guess they
were looking for a 'big new feature' for the next release! ;0

Asset management will be in, probably migrations too, although in a
simplified form. The only thing we haven't discussed so far is the
code mixing.

The code mixing is incredibly useful for allowing Engines to be
used/shared effectively in a DRY way.  But if it's not in Rails distro,
it can always still be in a very small separate Engines package. This is
good stuff, thanks Rails core.

I'm happy to see this but I am curious.  Why did the rails team change
their
minds?

I believe David has discovered that he has a personal usecase for
them, essentially. As with most things that make it into Rails, one of
the contributors needs to personally need it for it to really be
considered :)

Ain't that the truth!

I don't know what made him change his mind today, but after his
keynote at railsconf eu I've mentioned to him that people today are
using Engines for something pretty similar to what he suggested in his
talk ("concern'izing" stuff to modules), just one level up in the
architecture (i.e. using plugins). He was amazed and said he liked
that idea.

I'm just happy that finally I can stop dealing with fud in
#rubyonrails and elsewhere about "david says engines are deprecated".

Oh, btw ... James, thank you for Engines ;)

Think we will get model mixins out of this?

Fuck yes!

I'm sending a big FU to everyone who said putting Substruct on Engines
2+ years ago was a bad move.

Glad to see people are finally waking up and realizing Engines kick ass.
