An overview of Ruby on Rails 5: Ruby on Rails 5 New Features

Learn about Ruby on Rails 5, the first major release in three years. Rails 5 is faster, uses less memory, and spends less time performing garbage collection (GC). Rails 5 requires Ruby 2.2.2, optimizes common operations, has fewer library dependencies, and has fewer object allocations. The development environment is faster because it uses the Puma web server and has a file system monitor to know when code needs to be reloaded instead of having to check every file’s last modified time.
