Active Job Backport


Any plans to backport Active Job to earlier versions of Rails? This would be super useful for external gems that do asynchronous tasks (exception reporting, geocoding, etc). If not, I’ll take a stab at it.

We don’t have plans to backport it. We worked to make upgrading to Rails 4.2 an easy task so it would not require to us maintain old Rails versions. That said I don’t see a good reason to us maintain a backported feature.
