There won’t be a Living on the Edge this week, but you won’t be starved for info because the Rails community is keeping up.
Ryan Daigle has been keeping up with some of the changes on edge Rails and has done a few awesome explanatory posts on them:
- Easy memoization with ActiveSupport::Memoizable
- Nested model mass assignments
- Metaclass accessor (aka the eigenclass)
Perhaps even more noteworthy is the introduction of I18n (internationalization) support to Rails core. Sven Fuchs explains the technical details and API as well as the history of Rails and I18n. I18n support is scheduled to be fully stable in the Rails 2.2 release. Have an interest in internationalization in Rails? Lend a hand with your ideas, feedback, and patches at the Google Group.
