#8 Rails Upgrade News #008: Ruby on Rails Podcast; RubyGems Stats; Paperclip is back; and more.

Happy Wednesday!

Here is issue #008 of our newsletter, where we collect news and tools that we find interesting for your Rails project.

1. Ruby on Rails Podcast episode: Ernesto Tagwerker (founder of FastRuby) was invited to the Ruby on Rails Podcast, a podcast run by Brittany Martin. He and Brittany enthusiastically discuss blockers in upgrading Rails, tech debt and Ernesto's future plans for his code scoring library, Skunk 🎧.
2. Announcing RubyGems.org Stats: Now it's possible to see useful data (like Ruby versions, RubyGems versions, OS) that developers use.
3. Paperclip comes back to life: The popular file upload library for Ruby on Rails has a new fork (kt-paperclip) with new maintainers 🙌.
4. Using Actual Story Points to Become Better Estimators: Here is the process that we follow at OmbuLabs to become better estimators.

5. Bundler merged into RubyGems: The Bundler repository is now in https://github.com/rubygems/rubygems. This is part of a series of improvements to the RubyGems ecosystem 💎.

We hope you find these links useful. Feel free to forward it to your friends! ;)
