We are very pleased to help our customers as they migrate their applications to the latest version of the platform. Rails 2.2 offers many improvements in the framework that will make Ruby on Rails even more capable and more cost-effective."

"Ruby on Rails is always evolving and has over the past five years gone through some fifty-plus public releases," said David Heinemeier Hansson, creator of Rails and member of the Rails Core Team. "Rails developers need the supporting ecosystem to keep up with that evolution. New Relic is proving that they're willing to do just that by being quick to ensure compatibility with Rails 2.2."

Rails version 2.2 was released on November 21st, 2008.
