We’ve taken our first release step towards the final version of Rails 3.1 today with the unveiling of beta 1. This is a release mostly for people who’ve already been following along with the development of Rails 3.1 and want to try a version that’s close to feature complete.
We do not yet have all the documentation ready, so it’s still a bit of a detective job to figure out how it all fits together. Thus, this is not a general release and I wont hold it against you if you’re holding out for a release candidate (coming in the next few weeks).
The tag is 3.1.0.beta1 and you can install using
gem install rails --pre. Enjoy!
