Oh, hello there! I'm Tim, and if you're reading this that means you've got Rails fever! It's time for your weekly dose of This Week in Rails....
This week 21 people contributed to Rails, including 4 for the first time! If you'd like to join them and perhaps get a slot in next week's edition, why not check out the list of open issues?
The gem method can now support multiple version constraints, just like in rubygems!
This week we got a whole load of updates to the docs. More in fact than I can even link in one sentence. Documentation is one of the most overlooked areas of contributing to open source, yet one of the most valued. It also provides a great way into the code base if you're looking to get started.
Bug Fixes
This method used to get the tmp directory relative to Rails.root, which in an engine points to the dummy application, where no such directory exists. This was fixed by using the path relative to the current directory instead.
This fixed a race condition in class_attribute, which in redefining an attribute had to remove it first and then redefine it. If another thread was trying to access that attribute in the middle of that, it would raise a NameError. Thankfully no more!
Wrapping Up
....and that's a wrap! As always, there is never enough time or space to cover every change this week, but we value each and every one. If you'd like to know more you can check out the full list of changes yourself. See you next time!
