If you have been using Rails opens a new window for a while, you know that big version jumps are hard. If you have a big Rails monolith opens a new window with 100+ dependencies, you know that upgrading Rails opens a new window is not a trivial project.

You know you need to keep your Rails app up to date, but it’s usually not a priority. So you postpone upgrading until your version of Rails is no longer supported. Then you upgrade.

More often than not, you start a Rails upgrade opens a new window branch, start bumping versions, find problems, troubleshoot them, and eventually get sidetracked by your business. Then you switch to another branch and the Rails upgrade opens a new window branch grows stale.
