Rails 3.2.0.rc2 has been released!

Hi everyone,

Rails 3.2.0.rc2 has been released!

What to update in your apps

  • Update your Gemfile to depend on rails ~> 3.2.0.rc2
  • Update your Gemfile to depend on sass-rails ~> 3.2.3
  • Start moving any remaining Rails 2.3-style vendor/plugins/*. These are finally deprecated!

Extract your vendor/plugins to their own gems and bundle them in your Gemfile. If they’re tiny, not worthy of the own gem, fold it into your app as lib/myplugin/* and config/initializers/myplugin.rb.
