Week of January 8-14, 2012
A fairly quiet week on the Edge Rails front. Still lots of general cleanup and refactoring going on, plus a few new features.
- Support for the old
schema_infotable was finally dropped in f82e244a. This will require a 2-step migration for very very old applications but in practice I doubt it will bother anyone.
- f194ff9d adds a “What to update in your apps” section to the release notes. It’d be excellent if this were up to date on release day.
- 16c4cb04 adds ‘on’ and ‘off’ to the values that ActiveRecord will properly typecast into Boolean columns.
- Migration internals were heavily refactored starting at bc276fbc, but it looks like there’s no effect on the external API.
