Noting that a new version or Ruby has been released, v1.8.6, as a Rails developer what is the normal upgrade timeframe? That is:
- upgrade to Ruby now?
- wait for Rails to be “certified” on Ruby v1.8.6?
- wait for a new release of Rails that has been developed against Ruby v1.8.6?
Plus it seems on shared hosting platforms Rails is easy to update via the “freeze” approach, however I’m not sure if this same approach is possible with Ruby itself, and whether one would have to wait for the provided to update Ruby? ( e.g. Dreamhost?)
