Squeel 0.6.0 released

Posted by Ernie on May 4, 2011 at 11:39 am

I’ve been hard at work trying to finish up Squeel before RailsConf (if you’re going, and you’d like to meet up, feel free to stalk me). Here’s what’s new since my last post:

  • Most importantly, a reasonably-complete README.
  • More documentation sprinkled throughout the code.
  • includes, eager_load, preload, reorder, and group can take Squeel DSL blocks now.
  • Backported compatibility to Rails 3.0, no longer edge-only!
  • Greater consistency in stub/keypath behaviors.
  • Added a “my” method to Squeel DSL, for getting access to instance variables and methods from instance_eval’s clobbered closure.
  • Handling AR::Base objects in a backward-compatible way with stock ActiveRecord (convert to ids)

I feel that Squeel is a huge improvement over MetaWhere. I hope you’ll agree, and I hope you’ll help by letting me know if there are still any rough edges to iron out, as you migrate your apps!
