Yes, there’s nothing like the smell of freshly released software. Rails 1.2.1 was just released earlier today! Congrats to the Rails Core team and all the contributors! What a great start to 2007 for the Rails community.
Get it while its hot! I prefer freezing my Rails apps myself, because then I absolutely know what version of Rails each one is running. To get the official 1.2.1 release (1.2.0, we hardly knew ya), I prefer using “freezing” each app to it, because:
1. you know exactly what that app is running (and if you forget you can type in “script/about”)
2. you can still support apps that require 1.1.6 with the rails out of the gem
Now here’s the command to freeze your Rails app to the official 1.2.1 release:
rake rails:freeze:edge TAG=rel_1-2-1
