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.

Cheers
