Rails 3 and Ruby 1.8

According to http://guides.rails.info/getting_started.html Rails 3
requires either Ruby 1.8.7 < p248 or Ruby 1.9.2dev because everything
in between has bugs. That's quite unfortunate seeing that the MRI core
developers haven't released any fixes for the bugs yet, yet Linux
distributions are eager to package the latest version (p249).

We've backported the bug fixes that affect Rails 3 to p249 and
included these in the latest REE release, 2010.02. I think the
documentation should be updated with this fact.

The docrails project has public write access now. Please feel free to update it. Thanks!

Never mind, the awesome Xavier, already did it: http://github.com/lifo/docrails/commit/9ff61917a3a1b80a003272c63496a1bdde440bd4

Great Hongli. I updated the getting started guide, thank you very much!

PS: rails.info is no longer used for edge docs, although it still
serves them. Nowadays the official pointers for edge docs are
http://edgeguides.rubyonrails.org and http://edgeapi.rubyonrails.org.

Can someone with some clout (maybe DHH as he’s most recognisable) send emails to the owners of these other domains and ask them to serve a 301 header to the official docs. There are so many domains and Google indexes them all, it can be hard to know which one is the right one.

Yes that would be the right thing to do indeed. rails.info and the
machine that serves edge docs are Pratik's, I'll check it out with
him.
