Hi everyone,

Rails 3.1.1.rc1 has been released. Please give it a try, it’s our chance to fix regressions you might find and make a beautiful 3.1.1 stable release. If there are no regressions I will be releasing 3.1.1 final next September 16th during GoGaRuCo.



  • No changes


  • Allow asset tag helper methods to accept :digest => false option in order to completely avoid the digest generation.
    Useful for linking assets from static html files or from emails when the user
    could probably look at an older html email with an older asset. [Santiago Pastorino]

  • Don’t mount Sprockets server at config.assets.prefix if config.assets.compile is false. [Mark J. Titorenko]

  • Fix basic auth credential generation to not make newlines. GH #2882

  • Fixed the behavior of asset pipeline when config.assets.digest and config.assets.compile are false and requested asset isn’t precompiled.
    Before the requested asset were compiled anyway ignoring that the config.assets.compile flag is false. [Guillermo Iguaran]

  • CookieJar is now Enumerable. Fixes #2795

  • Fixed AssetNotPrecompiled error raised when rake assets:precompile is compiling certain .erb files. See GH #2763 #2765 #2805 [Guillermo Iguaran]

  • Fix ActiveRecord#exists? when passsed a nil value

  • Fix assertselectemail to work on multipart and non-multipart emails as the method stopped working correctly in Rails 3.x due to changes in the new mail gem.


  • Remove hard dependency on bcrypt-ruby to avoid make ActiveModel dependent on a binary library.
    You must add the gem explicitly to your Gemfile if you want use ActiveModel::SecurePassword:

    gem ‘bcrypt-ruby’, ‘~> 3.0.0’

    See GH #2687. [Guillermo Iguaran]


  • LRU cache in mysql and sqlite are now per-process caches.

    • lib/activerecord/connectionadapters/mysql_adapter.rb: LRU cache
      keys are per process id.
    • lib/activerecord/connectionadapters/sqlite_adapter.rb: ditto
  • Database adapters use a statement pool for limiting the number of open
    prepared statments on the database. The limit defaults to 1000, but can
    be adjusted in your database config by changing ‘statement_limit’.

  • Fix clash between using ‘preload’, ‘joins’ or ‘eager_load’ in a default scope and including the
    default scoped model in a nested through association. (GH #2834.) [Jon Leighton]

  • Ensure we are not comparing a string with a symbol in HasManyAssociation#inverseupdatescounter_cache?.
    Fixes GH #2755, where a counter cache could be decremented twice as far as it was supposed to be.

    [Jon Leighton]
