This is an update on the progress of the Ruby on Rails Tutorial, 2nd Edition. A draft of Chapter 6, "Modeling users", is now available. It covers the creation of a full User model, including secure passwords via the awesome has_secure_password method (new as of Rails 3.1). Various bugs in the first five chapters have also been fixed; thanks to all the readers who submitted reports. As before, please send any feedback to [email protected], and leave comments at Hacker News. To learn more about the Ruby on Rails Tutorial, 2nd Edition, see the original announcement.
