Putting the Can in CanCan Jump to Story

When you need an authorization solution for a Rails app, you might think of CanCan by Ryan Bates. Since Ryan has been taking a break recently, Bryan Rite from MojoLingo forked the gem into a new one called CanCanCan. The gem doesn’t change the CanCan namespace at all so it’s a drop-in replacement except for the Gemfile change. Version 1.7.0 was released recently with strong_parameters support, multiple abilities with associations, and a bunch of overdue bug fixes.
