Bullet 2.3.0 makes your queries faster

In late 2011, Rails 3.2 introduced automatic EXPLAIN statements for slow queries in development mode. The Bullet gem which reached version 2.3.0 this week end goes a bit further by notifying you when you should use eager loading, when it’s not really necessary, and when you might want to use counter_cache.

This new version introduces even more speed with 10% faster queries for Active Record 3.0, 48% faster than that for Active Record 3.1 and 40% for Active Record 3.2, according to Bullet's developer, Richard Huang.
