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 upstream patch release of Rails 4.0.
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 when creating a new
Rails application:

     $ 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 to this version of Rails:

     $ $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. :-)
