New Features

  • The swift adapter now supports an SQLite subadapter. Use the :db_type => 'sqlite' option when connecting. You can use an in memory database with the following connection string:

    swift:///?database=:memory:&db_type=sqlite
  • Arbitrary JDBC properties can now be set in the JDBC adapter using the :jdbc_properties option when connecting. The value of this option should be a hash where keys and values are JDBC property keys and values.

  • Basic Microsoft Access support was added to the ado adapter. The creation of autoincrementing primary key integers now works, and identifiers are now quoted with [].

  • The Database#indexes method now supports a :partial option when connecting to MySQL, which makes it include partial indexes (which are usually excluded).

Other Improvements

  • The class_table_inheritance plugin now handles subclass associations better. Previously, the implicit eager loading code had issues when you called an association method that only existed in the subclass.

  • The error message used when a validates_max_length validation is applied to a nil column value has been improved. You can override the message yourself using the :nil_message option.

  • The read_timeout and connect_timeout options now work correctly in the mysql adapter.

  • Another MySQL disconnect error message is now recognized.

Backwards Compatibility

  • The swift adapter was upgraded to support swift 0.8.1. Older versions of swift are no longer supported.
