Rails 2 on DH - when?


just like in the subject: when can we expect Rails on DreamHost servers to go 2.0 (actually 2.0.1)?

Whoever should freeze their apps has already done so during 1.2.6 upgrade (or earlier), and Rails 2.0 simply kicks ass. Both feature-wise (lot of REST-goodness, AR improvements) and performance-wise (sometimes 4 times faster than Rails 1.2.x).

It’d be great if Rails on DH servers was upgraded to 2.0. Rolling one’s own frozen Rails isn’t exactly the same thing :wink:

I haven’t tried out Rails 2, but I guess you can download and install it in your home directory.

You could also request it or vote for it through the suggestion system at https://panel.dreamhost.com/index.cgi?tree=home.sugg&
