Rails Erd v1.6.0 Release Notes

Release Date: 2019-05-14 // over 2 years ago
  • ๐Ÿ›  It took a couple years, but I think we finally tracked down and fixed the segfault issue that was causing so many graphs to break during generation, or simply be entirely blank! We had a ton of great contributions this past year, and I'm glad to finally get them bundled up and shipped.

    ๐Ÿ”’ One big change is dropping support for Rails 3.2 and Rubies < 2.2; they're unsupported, not even receiving major security patches, so it was time. v1.6.0 /may/ still work with some of these versions, but consider them unsupported going forward.

    ๐Ÿš€ I also added early support for Rails 6.0.0.rc1; its working in testing, but should be considered experimental. Patches welcome, and if needed updates will ship. I suspect we'll see additional bug reports as 6.0.0 reached final release, but if you have a Rails 6 project I encourage you to give it a try.
