Things I wish ActiveRecord had after using Ecto

Great list, and I agree with many of Vladimir's points. However, I have to admit that Ecto's take on preloading still bugs me after years of use. I find myself doing the preload dance all over the place even when I'm well aware of the performance issues around N+1 queries. I thought I'd get used to it over time, but it still irks me every time I see an Ecto.Association.NotLoaded exception.

It's not without drawbacks, but you can definitely sleep better knowing that even a database breach can't compromise your users' passwords. Because there aren't any.

CanCanCan picks up where CanCan left off

Ryan Bates' unfortunate burnout-induced hiatus from open source left his projects unmaintaned. CanCan — the much beloved authorization gem for Ruby on Rails — was no exception. CanCan may be dead, but long live CanCanCan! This repo is a continuation of the dead CanCan project. Our mission is to keep CanCan alive and moving forward, with maintenance fixes and new features. Pull Requests are welcome! This is what I love about open source. Great ideas aren't bound to their creators. All it takes is one person who cares enough to pick up the torch and run with it.

Rails 4.1 to get a Spring in its step

A lot of focus lately has been put on improving Rails' speed in dev mode. John Leighton's Spring gem is a result of some of that focus. It preloads your Rails application and keeps it running in the background so you don't need to boot it every time you run a test, rake task, or migration. As of this commit Spring will be installed by default on newly generated Rails 4.1 apps.
