Rails 1.2: What next for Rails?

By Peter Cooper / June 27, 2006

Chris Williams looks at David Heinemeier Hansson's keynote speech at last weekend's RailsConf in Chicago and examines what David has to say about Rails 1.2 (scroll down half a page when you get there).

Other than toys like clever find conditions in Rails without SQL and specifying response types in the URL, you'll be able to look forward to some extreme REST goodies where Rails can route certain HTTP verbs directly to controller actions (e.g. a DELETE HTTP request would route to 'destroy', POST would route to 'create', etc) and the ability to pull data from other applications natively with ActiveResource (I've hacked my own dirty version of this into apps I've developed, and this will be a life saver).
