rails_4_session_flash_backport Jump to Story

How do you take a 7 year old rails codebase, and upgrade it from v2.2 without any downtime? Well, if you can have a load balancer with several app instances, and roll out your upgraded app on just one of them, you can introduce it piecemeal...

Oh... except You can't run Rails versions side by side like that because of session incompatibilities.

This gem helps with that.
