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.
