The final build of 1.1 is now out in the wild – go team! With over 500 changes, you’ll want to take this bad boy home to Mother. No, really. What’s new? See the official weblog for the whole skinny:
Rails Weblog: Rails 1.1
Upgrading is a fairly simple, two-step approach (the first updates Rails itself, and the second updates your JS files).
gem install rails --include-dependencies
Please note:Some plugins may need an update for the new version, and you’ll want at least Ruby 1.8.4, so YMMV.
