Double Shot #645

It's time to buckle down and deliver some code.

While getting Rails 3 running wasn't that hard (although it was a lot more messy than 1.2 to 2 was) I have to say that if you rely on third party dependencies, alot of them weren't ready for the beta. In some cases, this results in alot of hand wringing, like, "Gosh is that gem/plugin even maintained anymore ? Should I even be using it ?"

I've never been more aware of the tradeoffs of using someone else's code (and being captive to it) than right now.

Alex: Rails 3 BETA was JUST released. Is it really that far-fetched to think that most gems wouldn't be compatible JUST after the first beta being released? I wouldn't even begin to start migrating an application to Rails 3 until at least a few MAINTENANCE releases of Rails 3 have been pushed...that's just me though. What's the rush?
