I've done a bit of googling and trac searching already for this,
so apologies if this is already discussed or documented...
I found a change that blew up a bunch of code for me. NOt sure if I
was doing the wrong thing, so here it is. Basically, in 2.0.0 PR the
generate method in actionpack/lib/action_controller/routing.rb no
longer converts symbols passed in through options[:controller] to
strings before running this code (1335 of routing.rb):
if !named_route && expire_on[:controller] && options[:controller] &&
options[:controller] != ?/
The last condition causes problems if the controller is passed in as a
I've fixed my code, but I was curious if this is an intentional change
and if someone could point me to why? I realize internally it makes
strings anyway, so it doesn't save anything in terms of memory, so
maybe that's a good enough reason.
