Rails 5.0.0.beta4 was released only a few days ago and they’re now down to just 4 open issues before we have a stable release candidate(RC1). Meaning, Rails 5 is around the corner, yay!
For most of the past two years we’ve been working on a few Rails 4.2.x apps on production, with unicorn*, but now it is just about time to consider an upgrade.
To start, since locally, we use homebrew, the first thing to do was:
$ brew update
$ brew upgrade rbenv ruby-build
This went smoothly:
<br />$ rbenv -v #rbenv 1.0.0
and it was nice to see a list of new ruby builds that are available now.
$ rbenv install --list
For rails5 it is recommended to use ruby 2.3.0 or higher, so we’re upgraded straight to ruby 2.3.1 from ruby 2.2.2 that we were on earlier.
$ rbenv install 2.3.1
