RC3 releases are out for ronin-support and ronin.
Ronin 1.0.0.rc3 is now upgraded to DataMapper 1.1.0.rc3. This latest RC
of DataMapper has finally dropped ActiveSupport/Extlib as dependencies,
and has cherry-picked any required support code into DataMapper::Ext.
The removal of AS/Extlib means faster load-times (require 'dm-core' now
takes ~2s). Note: all of the usual AS/Extlib convenience methods added
to String/Object/Kernel (String#blank?, String#underscore, etc) are no
longer loaded by default in Ronin.
Dan Kubb (dkubb) in #datamapper says that DataMapper 1.1.0 will probably
be released over the weekend; if no major bugs are found. This means I
should be able to release ronin-support 0.1.0, ronin 1.0.0 and ronin-gen
1.0.0 before Monday (14th).
I also tried to improve load-times of Ronin in RC3, and was able to
remove some unnecessary requires here and there.
