Posted by kaspth, July 2, 2016 @ 12:00 am in News

Hello open sourcerer!

Here’s Kasper rushing straight from the bullpen to the printers to report: Slow week, but we’ll get through it.

Just kidding! Rails 5 is here.

In fact, to really underline the magnitude of this achievement please play this music while you read.

Rails 5 is here!

After a period of betas Rails 5.0 has now been released. The headline features are Action Cable and a mode primed for API-only apps.

There are also loads of other goodies which we’re covered here before. Check out our archives or comb through the 9999 commits themselves.

Guides updated for Rails 5

If you’d like a more high level overview there’s also new guides ready.

You can find tips on upgrading, there’s a new version of the testing guide — and there are the full release notes, which has a lot of details.

Rails 5: made by you and me

Rails 5 wouldn’t be possible without the 948 people who put in free time to help make these releases happen. A roaring thank you goes out to every contributor big and small. ❤️

(Here’s what happened just this week.)

Wrapping Up

That’s it from This Week in Rails! There were many other great contributions, too numerous to list here, but feel free to check them out!

Until next week!
