Posted in Updating Rails Applications across Rails versions?

Question, how do I go about handling the update process for my Rails apps?

Example: I setup many apps with Rails 4.0.0 and currently 4.2.0 is out. What's the update process look like? I tried to just update the Gemfile and bundle install but it seemed to mess things up.

Thank goodness for git backups. I had half a brain to do it in a new branch :) I think it'd be extremely handy if there was a resource new devs could look back on and use to help update apps.

(I found out I have to update my app because I need to use render plain: and I don't think that's in Rails 4.0.0)
