State of the project

1.0.0

We're currently working on 1.0.0, which as far as dependencies, moves us from meta_search to Ransack and adds Rails 4 support. You can get Rails 4 and 4.1 support by tracking master:

gem 'activeadmin', github: 'activeadmin/active_admin'

0.6.x

The plan is to follow semantic versioning as of 1.0.0. The 0.6.x line will still be maintained, and we will backport bug fixes into future 0.6.x releases. If you don't want to have to wait for a release, you can track the branch instead:

gem 'activeadmin', github: 'activeadmin/active_admin', branch: '0-6-stable'
