Keeping track of changes to Rails

Hi all,

I know that it's supposed to be good practice as a Rails developer to
keep track of changes in Edge Rails in case there are bug fixes or new
pieces functionality that can help you out. I'm wondering how folks
generally do this. Various blogs do a good job of posting on key
changes and how nifty they are, but this only captures bits and
pieces. For the moment I'm just watching Subversion commits (as
described in my post http://edgenic.com/2007/10/19/tracking-edge-rails-changes),
but is there a better way?

You can get changesets as an rss feed from trac. Or, you could sit
back and let Ryan gather the info for you: http://ryandaigle.com/

Seems to be the link most people reference when this comes up...

There's a booklet recently published as well:

Thanks. I agree that Ryan does a stellar job of distilling out the
most important changes in rails, and presents them quite well.
