does the Simply_resful plugin still work ?

To be honest, I don't actually know the answer. I am wondering why
you can't use edge rails though? I'm guessing it's because you are
trying to get REST support into an existing project? If, on the off
chance, you are creating a new project to play around with I'd
probably go to edge.

Generally use what works. If your tests fail w/ latest edge or you have
other problems step back a few revs and re-try (most of the time you can
easily guess where it broke by reading the change history).
