Is Rails 3.0 obsolete?

I know you said you did not want me to try to help you, but this apparently tells you how to install a later version of Rails (and Ruby, since 1.8.7 is also out of support) on Dreamhost. http://wiki.dreamhost.com/RVM

I cannot personally see any reason to start a new application with anything other than the latest current version of Rails. I believe even 3.2.x will go out of support very shortly, though I cannot immediately find the announcement where I believe I saw that.

It is a consequence of the maintenance policy linked above.

Note the guide documents the general rules, and then to ease things says what the rules mean today in terms of specific version listings. But the rules are what matters.

3.2 is getting fixes for **severe** security fixes (not bug fixes, not regular security fixes for some value of regular), because it is the last major release series.

When Rails 5 is out, the last major release series is going to be Rails 4, so Rails 3.2 is not going get any update of any kind. Frozen.

Yes, you are right, thanks. I had not read it carefully enough.
