Not really a major update on the main installer: just updated a couple of gems and included the command line shell for SQLite3.
The big update is the addition of a Ruby 1.8.7 installer. As mentioned in my previous post, RailsInstaller is a bit faster than RailsFTW because of 1.9.2’s slow performance. Because of this, I decided to put up a 1.8.7 option for RailsFTW.
At first I thought it was going to be an easy task. Unfortunately, mysql2 wasn’t cooperating when used it in combination with Rails and I had to ask for help. Fortunately, Luis Lavena pointed me to a recently discovered bug in the mysql2 gem and I was able to make it work. The downside is that the patch isn’t official yet so I’d have to mark the 1.8.7 version of RailsFTW as “experimental”.
Anyway, just head over to http://railsftw.bryanbibat.net to find the latest installers.
