Rails 1.2.4 came out today. The big thing here in my opinion is that it helps you get ready for Rails 2.0, since it includes more deprecations.
I had to fix a deprecation for pagination, which will be optional in 2.0. To fix it, I piston installed the classic_pagination plugin from the guys at errtheblog:
piston import svn://errtheblog.com/svn/plugins/classic_pagination vendor/plugins/classic_pagination
By the way, this also affects Streamlined, which uses pagination.
Another thing in 1.2.4 is that REST URLs don’t use the semicolon “;” anymore, instead they just use the regular slash “/”. So instead of doing /comment/1;edit which always seemed a little weird, we’ll now use /comment/1/edit.
Also in 1.2.4 are security updates and “minor performance enhancements.”
I usually freeze Rails and I dug up my rails:refreeze rake task to do it, which does it all automatically. I’ll blog that soon. I wonder – is there a place where you share rake tasks? Is there a Rake-forge?
