Migration file name

Hi everybody, I was just wondering if the migration files name changed with rails 2.1.0. I use to learn rails with the famous book Agile Development with Rails and for this I had rails 1.2.3. The migration files were like 001_create_pages.rb. I installed rails 2.1.0 yesterday and now I've got weird filename including the date 20080608231851_create_pages.rb. Does anyone know what's happening? Thanks in advance for your help... V.

That's just how migrations are named in 2.1. see also http://ryandaigle.com/articles/2008/4/2/what-s-new-in-edge-rails-utc-based-migration-versioning


The leading numbers are UTC timestamps. See http://ryandaigle.com/articles/2008/4/2/what-s-new-in-edge-rails-utc-based-migration-versioning .
