Debian Jessie is about to become the new Debian Stable. I have released my new Debian Jessie Vagrant box at https://github.com/jhsu802701/vagrant-debian-jessie-rvm as a replacement for the old Debian Wheezy Vagrant box. The old Debian Wheezy Vagrant box is still available, but I will not be making any more releases. The scripts I use for making the new Jessie-based Vagrant box are at https://github.com/jhsu802701/packer-debian-jessie .
The biggest improvements in my Vagrant box are:
- Ansible comes pre-installed.
- The latest versions of Ruby 2.2, 2.1, and 2.0.0 are included. For each of these versions of Ruby, Rails 4.2.1, 4.2.0, 4.0.8, and 3.2.16 are pre-installed. (4.2.0 is the version of Rails used by the current Rails Tutorial Sample App. Rails 4.0.8 and 3.2.16 are used by past versions of the Rails Tutorial Sample App.)
