Hi all,

If I was to start developing an application using Edge Rails with the
view to deploying on Rails 1.1, would I fall foul of lots of bugs, or is
it relatively stable?

I'd really like has_many :through relationships, to save me dealing with
HABTM + associations.

Thanks,

Tom

I develop all of my applications on Edge, and when ready to move to
production I freeze the edge version it was last tested on.

Overall though, I have found it to be quite stable. There have been a
couple
occurrences, such as the loading issue which spun the Engines into a
cyclical recursive loop. James has fixed this in the edge branch, but
other
instances may come into effect.

The trunk is a development version, so you can expect it to be a very
rapidly changing environment. Which is stable if you are living in the
moment :)

Edge is reasonably stable, but we do change the API at a whim and
without warning. So if you want to play with the latest, I encourage
you to have a good test suite that'll catch any bugs or API changes as
you go along.
