my personal best new feature is:

"The UTF-8 default encoding, which make many magic comments omissible"

because i'm from Germany and we had to add: # coding: utf-8

in every freaking controller to get our german stupid letters (öäüß) to run without problems.

so i'm looking forward to my next project where i can use 2.0 from the scratch.

thank u!

Agree. Everytime I do locales in Vietnamese I have to do the "magic encoding". Not anymore. Fsh.

Why are you writing special characters in your controllers?

We are Danish, and are writing comments in English, and all locale strings is placed in i18n-files.

Anyone know if it is made default for regexps as well, or will we still have to do add /u to every regexp?
