First general availability release for 8.0.0. Major versions of 8.x will support Elasticsearch version 8.x changing the elasticsearch dependency's major version: gem 'elasticsearch', '~> 8'.
All references to type should have been removed. Document types were deprecated and do not exist in 8.x.

The dependency from elasticsearch on elasticsearch-transport was updated to elastic-transport. All 8.x Elasticsearch APIs supported by elasticsearch should now be supported on the Rails library. See Release notes for the Elasticsearch client 8.0 and the 8.x release notes for more information.


The gem is currently testing with Ruby 3.1, 3.2 and 3.3 and JRuby 9.4. Testing for Ruby 2.x versions has been dropped as they're no longer updated or supported. Currently testing with Rails 6.1, 7.0 and 7.1.
