Week of October 1 - October 7, 2012
The latest Rails performance brainstorm is turbolinks, which makes reloading just the page body the default for intra-application links. I’m skeptical, but it’ll probably work out fine except for annoying and hard to track down edge-case breakage.
- e35d8b18 turns turbolinks on by default for all new applications.
- There’s a new ActiveSupport::KeyGenerator that wraps PBKDF2 for use in making more secure keys. The merge is in 0a507925.
- Action and Page caching have been extracted to separate gems; see c82cf81f for details.
- rack-cache is no longer installed by default, though as ab4c0795 shows you can turn it on easily.
