Well, my experience is that when my web host upgraded to Rails 1.1, typo
2.6 broke. When I tried to upgrade to trunk, rake migrate didn't work. I
spent most of an afternoon comparing database schemas and patching
things up by typing raw SQL commands and quick Ruby scripts.
Judging from the number of times I've seen people report problems with
migrate on this list since joining, I'm far from alone.
If I hadn't been forced to upgrade, I'd have waited for the next stable
release. Hopefully someone plans to test a full 2.6.0 to wha.te.ver
migration without going via trunk.
