Rails 2.1 Release Candidate 1 Released
Hours ago, David Heinemeier Hansson announced informally on Twitter:
Rails 2.1 RC1 has been tagged, the gems are on the beta server, official announcement shortly. But no need holding you back from trying it.
To get Rails 2.1 RC1 from the beta gems server, just use:
sudo gem install rails --source http://gems.rubyonrails.com/
If you prefer to go native, Ryan Bates of Railscasts has already produced a screencast showing how to install Rails 2.1 RC1 using Git.
