Spree 1.1.0 Release Candidate

Posted on April 09, 2012 by Sean Schofield

Spree 1.1.0 is now available as a release candidate (rc1.) This means that the official release is imminent and we request your assistance in testing the code before we do so. As part of this process we have created a new 1-1-stable branch in Github. As the branch name implies, the code in this branch should stay fairly stable over time as we move towards and beyond the 1.1 release.

What’s in the Upcoming Release?

  • Support for Rails 3.2.x
  • Product groups are now a stand alone extension
  • Major overhaul to the API
  • Replaced meta_search with ransack
  • Several other minor changes

Please see the edge version of the release notes for more details

Using the RC in your project

Since the spree_cmd gem defaults to the latest official releases for Spree (and the associated payment gateway gems), it is recommended that you use the following approach to install the RC in a new project:

<p>spree install mystore —git=git://github.com/spree/spree.git<br />

For existing stores you can follow the standard process of updating your Gemfile

<p>gem ‘spree’, ‘1.1.0.rc1’</p>

and then install and run the migrations

<p>bundle exec rake spree:install:migrations<br />
bundle exec rake db:migrate</p>
