Celebrating Rails 5
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 World™.
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.
