I noticed that DreamHost was going to roll out Rails 1.1 on all the servers, but then they had problems and reverted everyone back to Rails 1.0. Indeed, when I go to my site and run “gem list”, I still see “rails (1.0.0, 0.14.3)”. Also, the installed Ruby is version 1.8.2, but I believe Rails 1.1 requires Ruby 1.8.4.
Now, I don’t actually need Rails 1.1 at the moment, but I would like to upgrade eventually. Assuming that my app is fully compatible with Rails 1.1, does that mean I can simply wait a little longer until DreamHost decides it is safe to upgrade everyone? Will the upgrade then happen automatically, or do I need to do something special? The DreamHost blog has gotten me all confused about this.
