I ran into two 1.8.6 incompatibilities with Rails:

1. Time#to_date is a private method in date.rb
    Workaround in

2. was deprecated and is now removed
    This affected the bundled mysql.rb and is fixed in

These fixes will be released with Rails 1.2.3 so those who wish to
to Ruby 1.8.6 should move to the 1-2-stable branch or upgrade Rails to
1.2.3when it's available.

Otherwise, my Rails apps run well with Ruby 1.8.6. Thanks for the stable
