Rails 3 Beta is for Open Source Contributors Jump to Story

The beta release, while up and available to everyone, is a true beta and primarily targeted for open source contributors (gem and plugin developers, specifically). This release is intended to let them get their hands on the new framework well before it's intended that you'll be using for your everyday production applications. In fact, Rails 3 - while quite complete and functional - is *not* yet ready for your app, unless you write all of your source and support libraries yourself and are willing to take the leap. However, if you've got the skills and the time, please help test, report, and patch your favorite Rails gems and plugins, now!
