Rails 2.3.9 extends bridge to Rails 3
The release of Rails 2.3.9 by the Ruby on Rails developers will allow Rails coders an easier transition to the recently released Rails 3. The deprecation and renaming of a number of functions now means that, if a Rails application runs on Rail 2.3.9 with no deprecation warnings, then "you're looking good for an upgrade to Rails 3" according to the developers.
No issues appear to have been brought to the developers' attention yet unlike last May's release of Rails 2.3.6 which was rapidly followed by a "fixed" 2.3.7. This was followed even more rapidly by 2.3.8 in which the problems caused by the "fix" were undone.
The Ruby on Rails 2.3.9 release also contains a number of bug fixes which are detailed in the full commit log. Rails 2.3.9 is available as a Ruby gem or directly from the rails github repository. Rails is released under the MIT licence.
