Deprecated Ruby Sass, now what?

Hello! Ruby sass gem is now deprecated, as is stated on official sass website and in notification when I generate new rails project. However, I have hard time figuring out (and googling it) what exactly should I do about it. I have tried to update Rails, but the gem is still installed.

Does it mean Sass will not work anymore?

Do I have to replace the gem every time I create new project? (because this one is default).

If so, how can I modify the rails generator, so I dont have to deal with this every time? (specifying SQLite 3 to version 1.3.6. is already a bit of nuisance, now this would be another)

Thank you for helping me out.
