Should I continue using Rails 5 or should i use Rails 6?

Joan Gabun asked in Rails

As we all know the Rails is currently on version 6.0.3 as of May 06, 2020 (6.5 KB)

Some developers say that it is still not stable and must need to wait for a little while before migrating to the new version. While some say that should use it immediately since it's new.

Any ideas on this? Would want to know the opinions of every Rails developers.


It's definitely stable. GitHub and Shopify are often running these versions (or even newer) in production. Rails 6 has been out for many months and 6.0.3 is just a bugfix release to fix some minor issues.


Nice. Thanks so much Chris!
