Quit polluting your routes file with version namespaces or complicating your logic with separate controllers. Version Cake 1.2 is the unobtrusive way to version APIs in your Rails app. Works great with Jbuilder and RABL. Now with Rails 4 support.

Easy, unobtrusive API versioning for your Rails app. VersionCake was recently declared stable and bumped to version 1.0.
Easily version your Rails views with VersionCake (e.g. edit.v1.html.erb, edit.v2.html.erb, ..). If a view for the current version doesn't exist, VersionCake automatically degrades to the previous view version. A specific render version can be passed via the request header or query param. Perfect for API/jbuilder views. Can also be applied to any other view type (html erb/haml, etc).

Pull requests gladly considered. You can find the guidelines here.
