Hello,

I'm looking for some compatibility matrix between specific versions of
Ruby (like 1.8.5, 1.8.6...) and specific versions of Rails (like
1.1.6, 1.2.2 etc).

I'm in a position where I'll have to upgrade Ruby (to 1.8.6 or 1.8.7)
for old Rails app (typically 1.1.6 and 1.2.2), and that kind of
upgrade is likely to become more and more frequent.

Any hint ?

thanks!

Thibaut

Well, since I know that Rails 1.1.6 and 1.2.2 application will run
fine under Ruby 1.8.6 (and 1.8.5), I'll start you with that.  There's
plenty of evidence that Ruby 1.8.7 is more of a prequel to 1.9 than an
upgrade to 1.8.6 so you'll have to collect your own evidence about
older Rails running on Ruby 1.8.7.

Thanks for your feedback on 1.1.6 and 1.2.2.

I'll start by upgrading to 1.8.6, seems like a pretty good candidate.

thanks!

thanks for sharing this - I'm very sorry for your issues.

Maybe having some kind of community integration server to cross test the
various builds would be useful.

Did anyone do this already ?

cheers
