Rails is a web application development framework written in the Ruby language. It is designed to make programming web applications easier by making assumptions about what every developer needs to get started. It allows you to write less code while accomplishing more than many other languages and frameworks.

These releases represent the latest revisions of Rails 4.0, its dependencies, and some optional components. Installing the 'ruby-rails' package and its dependencies should provide the gems required for an application in the default configuration; optional dependencies also available (as listed above) need to be selected separately for installation.

Because of how gem dependencies work, in order to assure that you use these versions, the following steps must be followed:

    $ rails new testapp1 --skip-bundle
    (files are installed)
    $ cd testapp1
    $ bundle install --local
    (this will show that existing gems are being used)
    $ rails server
(then point browser to http://localhost:3000/, or install rails-unicorn and...)
    $ unicorn_rails
    (then point browser to http://localhost:8080/)

And to upgrade existing apps upon future ruby-rails releases:

    $ $EDITOR Gemfile
    (and update the gem 'rails' version number)
    $ bundle update rails --local
    (Existing gems should be found and used.)
    $ rake rails:update
    (and follow the prompts to update files)

If you do not use the --local flags as indicated above, then other versions of these gems may end up being installed, which may break things either then or down the road. As always, you get to keep both pieces. :-)

Per the new rubygem packaging scheme, each gem also comes with a separate -doc package with the generated documentation, which can be either viewed in a web browser (served with 'gem server') or from the command-line (with 'ri').
