You called render with invalid options : {:text=>"howdy"}, nil

I just "upgraded" to Rails 2.2.2.

In environment, I've set:
RAILS_GEM_VERSION = '2.2.2' unless defined? RAILS_GEM_VERSION

In development.rb and production.rb I've commented out:
#config.action_view.cache_template_extensions = false

I now get an error:
You called render with invalid options : {:text=>"howdy"}, nil

The data within the curlies will be appropriate to the page. It's
usually something like:
{:layout=>true, :file=>"page/list"}, nil

In the :text example, I'm trying to isolate the controller and the
views out of the picture and render some simple text to the screen
  def mypage

It doesn't matter whether I'm running Apache/mod_rails or Mongrel, I
get the same error. Must be something basic, but there isn't much on
the web about it. Any ideas will be appreciated.

Random guess: you've got a plugin that was overriding some action
controller internals and those internals have changed.


As Fred said, what plugins/gems are you using?

Thanks everyone for responding. I thought I had posted the answer
somewhere, but I don't see it here. The problem is with the Textmate
Footnotes plugin as described here:

which will take you here:
script/plugin install git://
