I haven't been following the RoR community for a while as my work
caught up to me, but now things have slowed down a little and I'm
looking at getting back to learning Rails for my web app idea (a
customized CRM type app for services like lawn care, carpet cleaning
and pool cleaning).
As I see, the current version of Ruby 1.9 is 1.9.1-p129. Is Rails
compatible with this version? I know from a little reading before
that there were issues and upgrading was NOT recommended; has this
changed? Any common gems that don't work, or have most of the bugs
been ironed out? I already started writing some of my code in Ruby
1.8.7 (Rails 2.3.2) so I'm considering upgrading now to 1.9.1 but I
don't want to start an upgrade only to find that a lot of basic things
Right now I have both Ruby 1.8.7 and 1.9.1 installed side-by-side on
my MacBook just to be on the safe side.
