To use Rails 6 or Not

General • Asked by Rob Thomas

Hey Go Rails Fam,

I'm starting a new project this weekend and I was wondering should I user Rails 5.2.3 or just start the project with Rails 6.0.0.rc1? Let me know what you think.


I would definitely use Rails 6. It's quite stable and since it mostly is adding some new features, you don't have much to worry about. Also all the gems I typically use are compatible with it so I haven't had much issue.

Perfect, thanks Chris!!!
