Rails 3.0.8.rc2

Hey folks! I've pushed 3.0.8.rc2.

I want to give a big thanks to Philip Arndt and Robert Pankowecki for
reporting regressions in 3.0.8.rc1! We've fixed the regressions, so
I pushed an rc2.

To see the diffs for this rc, check out [the commit list on

Since we've released a new release candidate, I'll target the final
release for June 1. If you find regressions between v3.0.7 and
v3.0.8.rc2, please let me know and we'll do another rc!

Thanks everyone!

Another regression: https://github.com/rails/rails/pull/1362 ( broke
with https://github.com/rails/rails/commit/9f5ab9a9ff3c9efe4126cf00dc69e777160f554b
- was partially fixed for rc2 in
). Happens for hb:t with :source/:as set.

Another regression (hb:t with :as/:source): https://github.com/rails/rails/pull/1362#issuecomment-1251822

A similar case was fixed for rc2 in https://github.com/rails/rails/commit/179a8a46f91f71c2b0a7d306abbfc4259b61e717

P.S. I hope this message wasn’t posted twice. Google Groups upgraded itself after posting…

This https://github.com/rails/rails/issues/1322 is not fixed in 3.0.8.rc2 :frowning:
I'm still getting the same error.

Robert Pankowecki

Crap. Any way you can get a sample application to me that will
reproduce the error? I can't seem to reproduce it, so I'm flying blind.

Thanks. I've merged this in to 3-0-8. I'll release another RC once we
get the other bug fixed up.

Reproducing the exception

  1. create a new Rails app

  2. Gemfile:

gem ‘rake’, ‘~> 0.9.0’

gem ‘rails’, ‘3.0.8.rc2’

gem ‘sqlite3’

gem ‘calendar_date_select’, :git => “git://github.com/paneq/calendar_date_select.git”

  1. bundle install

  2. bundle exec rake -T

The fix

https://github.com/rails/rails/commit/57958cb7b924c00ce6761bd0fc75aae304e7380b was close to fixing it. Slight modification in https://github.com/rails/rails/pull/1397 (the 11 characters aren’t even worth the merge). Runs smoothly now.

Current 3-0-8 branch works fine for me now :slight_smile:

Does this yaml syntax work with newest rails and ruby 1.9.2-p180

  <<: *development
  database: gavdihrpif_test
  min_messages: warning


It seems to me that attributes are not overwritten.

Robert Pankowecki

I found out that although the bug for this was submitted 4 months ago
it was fixed only 6 days ago in ruby 1.9.2 .
