Trunk or 1.1?

If you were launching a site in late September, would you be
developing with Rails 1.1 or on edge rails?

1.1.3 is a safe bet, but edge isn’t that big of a risk. Edge tends to
stay pretty stable, since there is reasonably good test coverage.
Probably you should find a revision of edge that seems stable for you
and stick with that. If you have good functional tests for your app,
seeing if you can run on a new revision of Rails shouldn’t be that hard.

I do have fairly decent tests, but I’m worried about stuff like memory
leaks, security issues, and so forth.

You mean 1.1.2? Didn’t know about 1.1.3.

routes are about 20% broken for me in edge. stuff using *prefix and
regex constraints. since i lke pretty urls and am too busy to dive into
the code and figure out whats up, it was reason enough to go back to the
‘gem’ version. YMMV
