Behaviour Driven Development for Ruby on Rails.


### Version 1.2.0

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Due to changes in Rails-2.3, there are some changes in rspec-rails-1.2.0 that might break some specs in your existing apps. Be sure to see and for information about upgrading.

IMPORTANT: This release includes the following backwards-compatibility-breaking changes.

* rspec-rails supports rails 2.0.5, 2.1.2 and 2.2.2, and 2.3.1

  * We are no longer supporting 1.x versions of rails.

* expect_render and stub_render have been removed.

  * Both of these methods were deprecated in rspec-rails-1.1.5, released in Sept, 2008.

* { route_for(args).should == "/path" } now delegates to assert_generates (in rails)

  * see Upgrade.markdown for more information

Closes #654.   * Support query strings in params_from (Wilson Bilkovich). Closes #652.   * delegate route_for to assert_recognizes (less brittle)   * it { should be_valid } (Kakutani).

Closes #719.
