start_form / start_end

I upgraded a project to a more recent version of edge today and in my testing the log started throwing these warnings:

DEPRECATION WARNING: start_form_tag is deprecated and will be removed from Rails 2.0 See
http://www.rubyonrails.org/deprecation
for details.

The url shows no useful information. I’m a little suprised these would just ‘disappear’ from 2.0 as they are scaffold generated calls that worked a week ago with no warnings, but I’m more curious if there is a different list/group I should be reading to find out about this stuff?

So what is the correct, new and improved syntax/construct for forms?

The deprecation page will be fleshed out for the release of 1.2. You
can keep up with edge rails via the changesets and changelogs:

http://dev.rubyonrails.org/browser/trunk/actionpack/CHANGELOG

I’m much less excited now …

I was confusing (in my mind) 2.0 with 1.2 –

I can manage to hit all my forms by 2.0 …

What did you replace start_form_tag and end_form_tag with?
