Padrino 0.10.2 - ActiveSupport 3.1, TravisCI Support, Routing and Misc Bug

Just about 1 month ago, we released 0.10.1 which had several important bug fixes after our major 0.10.0 release. Today we are releasing 0.10.2 which continues in this tradition and provides a bunch more fixes that were reported since the last release. We sincerely appreciate everyone opening issues and sending us pull requests on Github. Our framework wouldn’t be half as solid without your contributions.

This release of 0.10.2 marks the beginning of our usage of TravisCI, major route reloading fixes, and a slew of bug fixes for the mailer, renderer, helpers, generators and more. We have also upgraded and locked to ActiveSupport 3.1. If you are using 0.10.1 and having trouble with the reloader, please upgrade to 0.10.2! Details for this release are below.

Upgrade to ActiveSupport 3.1

ActiveSupport 3.1 has been officially released and we have upgraded Padrino accordingly! Padrino 0.10.2 and on will require the latest and greatest ActiveSupport. Upgrading should be painless because there are not many backwards incompatibilities.


This release marks the beginning of our use of Travis CI for Padrino. TravisCI is a great tool for the open source community and improves our continuous integration testing for all versions of Ruby. commit


This release is largely pushed out to fix a major route reloading bug recently introduced. Reloading has continuously been the most error-prone and hardest to test aspect of our system. This has become frustrating for us as well as for our users. However, thanks to Hollin Wilkins & Dave Willett @ TrueCar in San Francisco, this route issue has been resolved for now. Please let us know if you are still experiencing issues when on 0.10.2! Check out the commit which fixed the issue.

We also fixed an issue with routes that contain the word ‘index’. Check out the commit.
