It's true.

Upgrading only makes sense if you gain something you need, or are forced to in order to maintain. We use a variety of tools designed to keep you at an older version until that time comes. In my opinion, upgrade when you have to, never earlier!

Basically, explain why.

@steveklabnik

Disregarding neat features in 3.2.x, no bugs are getting fixed in the 3.1 series. How much that matters is up for debate.

@steveklabnik Are there any bugs in 3.1 that are actually affecting us?

I'd rather see current bugs fixed in our existing code than worrying about upgrading to a new version of rails when it really doesn't matter at this point.

@steveklabnik

I haven't actually used rstat.us in any way in a really long time, so I have no idea. If Carol hadn't @replied me on the ticket, I probably wouldn't even be in here.

Faster dev mode has been a really nice feature in other apps.

@carols10cents

It's the security fixes I'm most concerned about.

@LindseyB

But 3.1 is still getting those security fixes.

@steveklabnik

Right, but since we're still on 3.1.6, we have like 6 gaping security holes due to old rails... so at least we should upgrade to the newest 3.1.x.

@carols10cents

And I just upgraded that too, for values of just==10 days ago :( 401fc95

@carols10cents

hmmm it looks like 3.1.6 is the latest 3.1.x??? https://rubygems.org/gems/rails/versions

@steveklabnik

Yeah, I'm dumb. It's 3.0.15.

@carols10cents

Ok I found another reason to upgrade... draper only supports rails 3.2 as of 0.13.0 and i want the minitest integration in draper 0.15.0 :(

@steveklabnik

I can backport you a fix to the 0.12.x branch for the short term.

Meh. I think I have us upgraded to rails 3.2.8; it wasn't too bad. Got us off of a github version of omniauth in the process. I think it's time.
