Finally about to make the move from 1.2.6 to 2.? and am curious about
I've looked at a bunch of postings across the web about upgrading, but
many of them seem to be written back when 2.0 was only a RC and it
seems like this has been a changing picture throughout the year (one
of the reasons I've waited).
Many of the postings in this group from earlier in the year seem to
point to lots of problems in making the move as well and, so, I ask
1) which version rails is the one to move to (most stable and ready)?
2) when I update does the process leave old gems in place so that if I
need to move back, it's "easy"?
3) if I want to try starting a new small app to learn the ropes vs.
updating my big app, can I leave all the rails 1.2.6-oriented pieces
in place and just set RAILS_GEM_VERSION to the 2.x version I'll be
using? or is it messier in some way?
I'm sure there's more I could be asking here and I'd be glad for this
to start a thread discussing/revealing any issues and gotchas to watch
out for. As you can see from my questions, I'm mostly trying to avoid
really messing things up before I start.
