After attempting account creation, the last_name and first_name attributes remain null in the database. With near edge (rev 8239), the dev log shows this WARNING: Can't mass-assign these protected attributes: first_name, last_name

To address, add these attributes to line 18 of user.rb:

attr_accessible :login, :email, :password, :password_confirmation, :last_name, :first_name

Perhaps this needs mention prior to section 3.3.5 (Testing Account Create from HTML). The code zip file does include this edit to the 'vanilla' restful authentication user model.
