Hi all, I'm planning to release rspec-1.2 and rspec-rails-1.2 shortly after rails-2.3 goes final (rails-2.3.1 was just released as RC2). There are a couple of loose ends right now, and I need your help in two important areas. I've curtailed releasing github gems, so please clone, build and install the latest  if you wish to help out. == Testing the release As rails' internals have changed and rspec-rails has kept up with those changes, I've also been taking the opportunity to clean up much of rspec-rails' internals (along with those of rspec core). While the public API has remain *mostly* unchanged , the changes to the internals present some risk for any extension libraries or any of your own customizations that monkey patch internals. To this end, it would be very helpful if you would run your rails apps with the latest rspec/rspec-rails code, and let me know (via reports to http://rspec.lighthouseapp.com) if you run into any problems. == Ruby 1.9 RSpec core's specs are all running against ruby 1.9 now. Not so much with rspec-rails. With rails-2.3.1 (RC2), rspec/rspec-rails-18.104.22.168  and ruby-1.9.1, there is zero feedback. No failures. No errors. Just nothing. It would be most appreciated by many if the bold among you could help to resolve this issue and get rspec-rails working with ruby-1.9.1. Thanks in advance for your assistance. Cheers, David  rspec and rspec-rails > 22.214.171.124 require that you clone the github repo and build/install locally. Instructions: http://wiki.github.com/dchelimsky/rspec/releases-and-gems  There is some rspec-rails code that needlessly duplicates functionality already available in rails' testing framework. To reduce the maintenance burden, as changes to rails cause problems with rspec-rails, I've been looking for opportunities to access rails via public APIs rather than internals. In some cases, this resulted in changes to rspec-rails. I've documented what I know in Upgrade.markdown in the root of the rspec-rails source.
