+Ruby on Rails 4.1 Release Notes
+===============================
+
+Highlights in Rails 4.1:
+
+* ...
+* ...
+
+These release notes cover only the major changes. To know about various bug
+fixes and changes, please refer to the change logs or check out the
+[list of commits](https://github.com/rails/rails/commits/master) in the main
+Rails repository on GitHub.
+
+--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
+
+Upgrading to Rails 4.1
+----------------------
+
+If you're upgrading an existing application, it's a great idea to have good test
+coverage before going in. You should also first upgrade to Rails 4.0 in case you
+haven't and make sure your application still runs as expected before attempting
+an update to Rails 4.1. A list of things to watch out for when upgrading is
+available in the
+[Upgrading to Rails](upgrading_ruby_on_rails.html#upgrading-from-rails-4-0-to-rails-4-1)
+guide.
+
+Creating a Rails 4.1 application
+--------------------------------
+
+```
+You should have the 'rails' RubyGem installed
+$ rails new myapp
+$ cd myapp
+```
+
+### Vendoring Gems
+
+Rails uses a `Gemfile` in the application root to determine the gems you require
+for your application to start. This `Gemfile` is processed by the
+[Bundler](https://github.com/carlhuda/bundler) gem, which then installs all your
+dependencies. It can even install all the dependencies locally to your
+application so that it doesn't depend on the system gems.
+
+More information: [Bundler homepage](http://gembundler.com)
+
+### Living on the Edge
+
+`Bundler` and `Gemfile` makes freezing your Rails application easy as pie with
+the new dedicated `bundle` command. If you want to bundle straight from the Git
+repository, you can pass the `--edge` flag:
+
+```
+$ rails new myapp --edge
+```
+
+If you have a local checkout of the Rails repository and want to generate an
+application using that, you can pass the `--dev` flag:
+
+```
+$ ruby /path/to/rails/railties/bin/rails new myapp --dev
+```

TIP: Ruby 1.8.7 p248 and p249 have marshaling bugs that crash Rails. Ruby Enterprise Edition has these fixed since the release of 1.8.7-2010.02. On the 1.9 front, Ruby 1.9.1 is not usable because it outright segfaults, so if you want to use 1.9.x, jump straight to 1.9.3 for smooth sailing.
