I ran into two 1.8.6 incompatibilities with Rails:

  1. Time#to_date is a private method in date.rb
    Workaround in http://dev.rubyonrails.org/changeset/6281

  2. MD5.new(…).to_s was deprecated and is now removed
    This affected the bundled mysql.rb and is fixed in
    http://dev.rubyonrails.org/changeset/6328

These fixes will be released with Rails 1.2.3 so those who wish to
upgrade
to Ruby 1.8.6 should move to the 1-2-stable branch or upgrade Rails to
1.2.3when it’s available.

Otherwise, my Rails apps run well with Ruby 1.8.6. Thanks for the stable
release!
