Rails 1.2 Released

Manfred Stienstra

Today the Rails Core Team released Ruby on Rails 1.2. The long awaited new version is of course full of features and fixes. The thing we’re most excited about is the inclusion of ActiveSupport::Multibyte. But it doesn’t stop with multibyte support, Rails now ships with UTF-8 as a default in all parts of the framework, something we couldn’t have dreamed of a year ago.
