Rails 2.0.1 Released!

By Matthew Magain

While the SitePoint crew were busy sunning themselves by the pool on our annual Xmas trip, the Rails core team packaged up version 2.0 of the Ruby on Rails framework and released it on the world. I expect the team probably had a fairly stressful weekend putting out a few fires (understandable given this is a major release). The result of their hard work is that, after only a couple of days, version 2.0.1 is already upon us.

If you’re using Ruby Gems, update your Rails install by typing:

gem install rails --include-dependencies

Our resident Ruby guru Myles Eftos has covered what’s new in Rails 2 and how you can best prepare for upgrading, so be sure to read up before you take the plunge.

    If the standard gem install doesn’t work (gem not found), you might want to try using

    gem install rails -y –source

    that gets the rails gem directly from’s gem server. Worked for me!
