RC2 or Edge?

I feel stupid asking this but I’ve been using Edge Rails to develop an
and I just wanted to make sure that I didn’t need to be switching back
the Rails 1.2 RCx. Edge is still okay, right?

Yours in idiot advocacy,

Hi, Edge is for development for the most part and it allows a
developer to code against the latest and greatest. If you’re
deploying client applications, I would recommend using the production
releases for this purpose. However, if you plan to use Edge within
your production environment, you’ll need to freeze edge before
uploading to the server.

Good luck,

1.2 is a stable and solid snapshot of edge from a little while back.
Edge is now going for a 2.0 release…

To install edge use: rake rails:freeze:edge
To install 1.2 RC use: rake rails:freeze:edge TAG=rel_1-2-0_RC2

Good luck,
