Rails 3.2 RC1 released, now with Active Record Store
The Rails team has released a release candidate for Rails 3.2, the last major version supporting Ruby 1.8.7:
Rails 3.2.x is planned to be the last 3.x release branch. rails/master is now 4.0.0.beta and will only support Ruby 1.9.3+. Farewell 1.8.7!— DHH (@dhh) December 20, 2011
Among the list of changes, the Active Record Store caught my eye:
class User < ActiveRecord::Base store :settings, accessors: [ :color, :homepage ] end u = User.new(color: 'black', homepage: '37signals.com') u.color # Accessor stored attribute u.settings[:country] = 'Denmark' # Any attribute, even if not specified with an accessor
I’ve long used Rails Settings in many projects. It’ll be nice to have this baked in.
