This announcement is to let you know that the sqlite3-ruby gem is being
renamed to (drum roll please) “sqlite3”.
We will maintain backwards compatibility by releasing an empty
“sqlite3-ruby” gem that depends on “sqlite3”. The empty sqlite3-ruby
gem will contain a post installation message that will inform people to
make the switch.
Require statements, etc will remain exactly the same. The only thing
changing is the gem name.
I will release beta gems today, and the final release some time this
A special thanks to Jakub Kuźma (http://twitter.com/qoobaa) for making
this possible. We wouldn’t be able to make this switch if it weren’t
