Testing tools and an important note for Ruby 1.9 users

Dec 30, 2009 • posted by Michael Hartl

I've just deployed a rewrite of Section 2.2.1, which deals with the testing tools used in the Rails Tutorial book. In addition to general clarification, I added a critically important step for any readers using Ruby 1.9. I'm grateful for the reader feedback that identified an interaction issue between Ruby 1.9 and the most recent version of RSpec: if you're using Ruby 1.9 or plan to upgrade soon, be sure to see the note on Test::Unit in the section on Installing RSpec. And let me know if you have any comments or run into any problems in the rewritten section.
