Rails 1.2 release date question

I have the beta version of the pragmatic book, and it uses features of
Rails version 1.2 in its examples. It is frustrating not being able
follow the tutorials verbatim. Is there any update when v 1.2 will
come out?

Mr. Interweb,

in your terminal application, you can run:

rake rails:freeze:edge

from the root of your app's directory structure to get access to all the features the book is using.

hth!

Great thanks.

We're still preparing the 1.2 release, but its getting closer. And we
already have lots of people running on edge, which will become 1.2
eventually. If you're developing a new application, and don't mind
updating your edge and paying attention to the changes, I'd probably
recommend going with edge.

You could just install Edge Rails in your application. That's what I do while I'm writing the book.
