This is a tiny post to let you know that IBM just released version 2.5.0 of the IBM_DB gem with support for the upcoming Rails 3. That’s what I call both proactive and a true testament of IBM’s commitment towards DB2 on Rails.
Aside from providing a working adapter and driver before the new framework release is even out, this release has a few improvements and fixes, such as getting rid of a minor bug related to prepared statements and has_many associations.
Finally, ibm_db 2.5 improves upon Unicode integration with support for any encoding format that’s permitted by Ruby 1.9.
