Test error - Testing Friendships

After creating the first test in the Testing Friendships video, I got this error and have no idea what's happening:

? ruby -I test test/unit/user_friendship_test.rb

*** Mocha deprecation warning: Change `require 'mocha'` to `require 'mocha/setup'`.

Rack::File headers parameter replaces cache_control after Rack 1.5.
