Download page(http://rubyonrails.org/download) tells as follows "We recommend Ruby 1.8.7 for use with Rails." Which version of RoR is stable(or available) on ruby-1.8.7? I want to use rails-2.1.2. but I dont know that is appropriate. # Im going to run redMine 0.8.0 on Ubuntu 8.10.

Thanks for answering! and please :), one more question. I looked for '1.8.7' all the time. I read '1.8.7' is as pre-release(or experimental-release) for '1.9'. and I found this, in CHANGELOG of rails-2.1.2. * Ruby 1.9 compatibility. #1689, #10546 [Cheah Chu Yeow, frederico] Is this the point of the answer?

the current stable version (for 1.8) is 1.8.7. that's all you have to know. but to answer your question: of course development is focussing on compatibility with the next generation of ruby. 1.8.8 is still to come out later this year (even though 1.9.1 has been released). but it's not experimental or anything. 1.8.7 is working fine. with 1.9.1 there are still problems with some gems.

A lot of people still run 1.8.6 - not so long ago 1.8.7 was a bit quirky. Earlier versions of rails wouldn't quite work with 1.8.7 (I can remember exactly when 1.8.7 compatibility came in, I suspect 2.1). The note in the changelog about ruby 1.9 is a bit misleading. Ruby 1.9 was a rapidly moving target at the time. At many points in the past year people have contributed patches that fixed one aspect of compatibility with 1.9 only for a subsequent change in 1.9 to unveil other problems. Fred
