Timecop 0.3.0 Released

Timecop 0.3.0 has just been released. To install simply run: gem install timecop.

Timecop is a RubyGem providing "time travel" and "time freezing" capabilities, making it dead simple to test time-dependent code. It provides a unified method to mock,, and in a single call.

Documentation is on RubyForge. The source code is hosted at GitHub.

Updates include:


  • Completely remove Timecop#unset_all (deprecated by Timecop#return in 0.2.0)
  • Return from #freeze, #travel and #return -- code contributed by Keith Bennett (keithrbennett)


  • Fix bug that left Time#mock_time set in some instances
  • Upped build dependency to jeweler ~> 1.2.1
  • Don't pollute top-level namespace with classes/constants


  • Clearer examples in the README, better description in the gemspec
  • Improve RDoc
