This release of Scrivito adds support for Rails 5.0 to the SDK. Rails 5.0 was released this summer and includes numerous speed improvements, refactorings and new features (see the Rails 5.0 overview for details).
Scrivito continues to support Rails 4.2, so in case you don't want to upgrade to Rails 5.0 yet, you can still update Scrivito to the latest version. A simple
bundle update scrivito does the trick. There is one small exception: We no longer support the
json gem in versions prior to 1.8.3. Previously,
json 1.7.7 or newer was supported.
We worked hard to support both Rails versions and to facilitate a smooth transition from Rails 4.2 to 5.0. If you want to upgrade your application to Rails 5.0, please first upgrade to Scrivito 1.7.0 or later, then update Rails itself. See the Guide for Upgrading Ruby on Rails for a detailed list of changes between Rails 4.2 and 5.0.
We continue to support Ruby 2.1. Rails 5.0, however, requires Ruby 2.2.2 or newer. Since Ruby 2.1 has already reached a state in which it only receives security fixes, it is highly advised to upgrade to a newer Ruby version (see the Support plans for Ruby 2.0.0 and 2.1 for details).
