Ruby & Rails Version Matrix

“I’m stuck with upgrading a Rails app from 3.x to something – anything! – newer. Just #$&! kill me now.”

Chances are you will be given a limping Rails application written years ago by someone else that never made the upgrade to more recent versions. It’s a pain in the ass to figure out which version of Ruby to use for the version of Rails you are upgrading to.

This is a summary of several sources for which versions of Ruby are required and recommended for different Rails releases.

Rails version Ruby version Ruby end-of-life Rails end-of-life
6.0.0.beta1 >= 2.5.0
5.0.0beta1 to 5.2.2 >= 2.2.2
4.2.1 to 4.2.11 >= 1.9.3, 2.2 recommended
4.1 to 4.2.0 >= 1.9.3, 2.1 recommended
4.0.5 to 4.1.0.rc2 >= 1.9.3 February 23, 2015 4.1.x December 18. 2015
4.0.0.beta1 to 4.0.4 >= 1.8.7 June 2013 4.x March 20, 2017
3.2.22 to 1.8.7, 2.2 recommended
3.2.13 to 1.8.7, 2.0 recommended
0.8.0 to 3.2.13.rc2 1.8.7 June 2013 3.2.22 June 16, 2015

Upgrading your Rails application is a complex process that can significantly benefit from structured project management and thorough software testing. The right tools in these categories not only make the upgrade smoother but also ensure that your application maintains its functionality and reliability throughout the transition.

Project Management Tools: Organizing and tracking the progress of your Rails upgrade is crucial. Effective project management tools help you outline each step of the upgrade process, from initial planning to final deployment, ensuring that no detail is overlooked. These tools enable teams to stay on schedule, manage resources efficiently, and maintain clear communication. For an in-depth look at how project management tools can transform your Rails upgrade project, read more about project management tools here.

Software Test Management Tools: With the myriad of changes that come with a Rails upgrade, having a robust test management strategy is indispensable. Software test management tools facilitate the creation, execution, and monitoring of test cases, making it easier to identify and address potential issues early in the upgrade process. These tools help ensure that your upgraded application performs as expected, without introducing new bugs or regressions.

Leveraging these tools effectively can significantly reduce the challenges associated with upgrading Rails applications, leading to a more efficient, reliable, and successful upgrade project.
