Which is more robust/bug-free? Rails 1.0 or 1.1-RC1?

I know that Rails 1.1-RC1 has many new features but it also seems to fix
numerous bugs found in Rails 1.1.

So for new projects–say a small (<=10 product) ecommerce website set to
launch “any day now”, should we use Rails 1.0 or 1.1-RC1?

Which is more bug-free? I heard 1.1-RC1 gets rid of the ‘white screen
of death’ but I’m wondering if any new bugs introduced would be worse.

System:
Debian 3.1
Apache 2.0.54 + debian_patches
mod_fcgid-1.08 + custom_patches
PostgreSQL 7.4.x
Ruby-1.8.2 + debian_patches
Rails-1.0 or 1.1-RC1…

I’d use 1.0, unless you need 1.1 features.

Not sure what the white screen of death is though.

I would expect this to happen:

  • the 1.0 - features are eventually more robust in 1.1
  • the 1.1 - features introduce a new, potential level of instability

So if you install 1.1 but only use the 1.0 features there’s
some hope (however, no guarantee) the platform is more reliable.

Quality comes from hard work, not version number roundedness.
