I wanted to draw some attention to a couple of very small multibyte-related patches I believe should be included before Rails 3.0 RC1:
- Use String#bytesize rather than String#length in exception templates:
This is a simple case where string length is checked, but bytes is needed, so it breaks with string with multibyte chars.
- Add AS::Multibyte::Chars#titleize
This makes “café”.mb_chars.titleize “do the right thing,” in the sprit of a few other patches I recently submitted.
I realize Railsconf is going on (I’m here!) but I thought it might be good to point these two out before it’s too late.
