Consider a bunch of desperate passengers eagerly waiting for their new train on its brand new track. The older train was though able to run properly but its condition was not-so-good. Some seats were ripped off and it made screeching voices as it slid over its old track.
Now, what do you get when you refer the desperate passengers as developers, the new train as Ruby and the track - Rails? Without a doubt - Ruby on Rails 3. A brand new pack of feature-packed libraries, modules, and whatnot to run smoothly on its new track.
A couple of days ago, Ruby on Rails 3 was released for the realm of developers or anyone who wants to become one. As soon as the upgraded framework was launched, an upheaval started to be formed inside the world of top Ruby on Rails development companies, as anticipated. Every firm and the individual developer wanted to master it as soon as possible.
Check out what’s new in the latest version of Ruby on Rails:
1. Security Improvements
XSS (Cross-site Scripting) attacks have grown pretty common nowadays. Quite a lot of website owners are losing their precious data due to loopholes left untouched. Rails 3 framework comes with an inbuilt and auto-enabled XSS protection.
2. Emails? As Easy as Eating a Pie
With the introduction of ‘ActionMailer’, setting up and sending emails in Rails 3 is not anymore a task full of hurdles and oodles of codes. In Rails 2, you would need to set parameters in each method separately. However, now a Mailer class can have a great many numbers of methods which finally makes the emailing easy.
There are a lot more features that the Rails 3 framework has bundled within that a developer like you should know about and learn asap. Stay tuned, we might start a full-scale tutorial on Rails 3 pretty soon. In the meantime, check out the cost of developing a food delivery application.
