I just had a flick through this presentation: http://
media.rubyonrails.org/presentations/pursuitofbeauty.pdf

I presume that a lot of this is David having a think about the future
of Rails? I scoured the docs for some of the features demonstrated,
but they certainly don't all seem to exist just yet.

A big +1 from me for:

The :through option to has_many relationships - habtm still feels a
bit kludgy, especially when dealing with additional attributes on
associations.

The form_for and fields_for helpers - this is an area of rails in
which the principle of DRY doesn't work well at the moment.

The page.replace_html stuff - complex AJAX made easy. I think I read
somewhere that this is already being worked on in edge Rails?

Cheers,

Pete Yandell

All of those features are already in edge rails.
