New Features

  • Add Dataset#grouping_sets to support GROUP BY GROUPING SETS on PostgreSQL 9.5+, MSSQL 2008+, Oracle, DB2, and SQLAnywhere:

    DB[:test].group([:type_id, :b], :type_id, []).grouping_sets
    # SELECT * FROM test
    # GROUP BY GROUPING SETS((type_id, b), (type_id), ())
  • Sequel::NoMatchingRow exceptions raised by Sequel now give access to the dataset that raised the exception via the dataset method. This makes it easier to write generic error handling code.

  • Support :if_exists option to drop_column on PostgreSQL:

    DB.drop_column :t, :col, :if_exists=>true 
    ALTER TABLE t DROP COLUMN IF EXISTS col

Other Improvements

  • Make the class_table_inheritance plugin work correctly without an sti_key. This was broken in a recent refactoring to make class table inheritance support multiple classes for a single table.

  • Make Class.new(ModelClass){set_dataset :table} work correctly on ruby 1.8. This was broken in a refactoring to allow the singular_table_names plugin to work.

  • Make offset emulation via ROW_NUMBER better handle ambiguous column names for datasets without an ORDER BY clause, but with an explicit SELECT clause.

  • Make pg_range extension use PostgreSQL range function constructors instead of casting string literals to the appropriate range type, if the range type is known. This allows arbitrary expressions to be used inside ranges, such as CURRENT_TIMESTAMP in timestamp ranges.

  • Make Dataset#== not consider frozen status.

  • Allow Dataset#prepare on already prepared statements in situations where determining the SQL for a prepared statement requires it.

  • Detect additional disconnect errors when using the tinytds adapter.
