Celebrating Rails 5

πŸŽ‰πŸŽ‚πŸ»

In case you haven't heard about it yet, Rails 5.0 has just been released! Just like a lot of you, we are very excited about this release. If you are curious, David wrote a blog post summarizing the key features and I encourage you to check it out!

You are probably wondering – what does it mean for me as a Skylight customer? Good news! You don't need to do anything. As long as you're on the latest version of the Skylight agent, it already works with Rails 5 (since the first beta!).

As Rails users ourselves, we understand how frustrating it is when a dependency is the only thing standing in between your app and the Brave New Worldβ„’.

At Skylight, we are committed to supporting the latest versions of Rails as soon as they are ready. In fact, we include edge-rails and maintenance branches in our CI runs. That way, whenever you feel ready to upgrade (or if you are planning to give Action Cable a test drive this weekend), you can feel confident that we will not be in your way.
