Rails 1.2.1 is here!

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
