I haven't taken the time to look at inherited resources yet, so I can't help
you with that issue. As José suggests, rspec does not monkey patch render if
integrate_views is set to true, so I'm not sure what the conflict would be.

In terms of rspec-rails for rails 3, we haven't started work on it yet, but
plans are being formulated as we speak, and I'll be posting about them soon.
Loosely, the plan is to do a preview release shortly after the initial
rails-3 preview release, and then a final release of rspec-rails-2.0 right
after the final release of rails-3.0. This will be a significant re-write of
the rspec-rails, and will rely primarily on APIs exposed by rspec and rails,
which should help to avoid conflicts like the one you are now experiencing.


Thank you very much.
