New Features

  • Delayed evaluation blocks can now accept the dataset literalizing the delayed evaluation as an argument. This makes it so the delayed evaluation result can depend on the dataset doing the literalization:

    ds = DB[:a].where(Sequel.delay do |ds|
      {Sequel.qualify(ds.first_source, :col)=>1}
    end)
    ds.sql          # SELECT * FROM a WHERE (a.col = 1)
    ds.from(:b).sql # SELECT * FROM b WHERE (b.col = 1)
  • Database#create_trigger on PostgreSQL now supports a :when option to create a filter for the trigger, so that it is only triggered when the filter condition is true.

  • You can now override the cache key prefix in the caching plugin by overriding the cache_key_prefix class method. This can be useful when using a table inheritance plugin.

Other Improvements

  • You can now pass arbitrary types to Dataset#where and related methods. Previously, if a type was not explicitly handled, an exception would be raised. Now you can pass any object that can be literalized. The only exception is that you can't pass Numeric objects, since where and similar methods should only deal with boolean expressions.

  • association_join and related methods now work correctly if the dataset already has an explicit selection.

  • A regression has been fixed in the class_table_inheritance plugin when using a hierarchy of more than 2 levels, when using the superclass to load a subclass instance more than 2 levels below, and later attempting to load a column contained in one of the middle tables.

  • When using _delete or _remove keys in the nested_attributes plugin to remove existing associated objects, the associated objects are now deleted from the cached association array at time of call. This is for consistency when adding new associated objects, where the new associated objects are added to the cached association array at time of call.

  • The nested_attributes plugin now handles composite primary keys correctly when working around validation issues for one_to_one and one_to_many associations.

  • If exception A is raised during a transaction, and exception B is raised while attempting to rollback the transaction, the transaction code will now raise exception A instead of exception B.

  • An additional serialization failure is now detected on PostgreSQL.

  • An additional disconnect error is now recognized in the jdbc/jtds adapter.

  • The code examples in the RDoc are now syntax highlighted, and many minor fixes to the code examples in the RDoc were made. Additionally, many other improvements were made to the RDoc.

Backwards Compatibility

  • Dataset#delayed_evaluation_sql_append now accepts the delayed evaluation as an argument, instead of the callable contained by the delayed evaluation.
