This is just a quick heads up that I’m going to be making the 1.2
branch of the engines plugin the official release in the very near
future. If you’re planning on using the engines plugin with Rails 1.2,
I’d really appreciate it if you could test the current branch with
your 1.2 application:
rm -fr vendor/plugins/engines
svn co http://svn.rails-engines.org/engines/branches/rb_1.2
Check out the UPGRADING notes for what to be wary for, and post any
bugs back to the Collaboa site, http://dev.rails-engines.org (login:
anon, password: engines).
IMPORTANT NOTE for those not using Rails 1.2
If you’re stuck on Rails 1.1.6 or lower (and I’m sure there are many
who are), don’t try to install this release. It won’t work. It should
actually complain gracefully, but there are no guarantees.
Furthermore, if you’re linking to the
http://svn.rails-engines.org/plugins/engines tag via SVN externals,
you MUST update your link to either freeze at the current revision, or
switch to a specific tag. Alternatively, look at the Piston tool for
locking down your version of the engines plugin to a known-working
This is unbelievably important - ignore at your PERIL.
