Looks like a good release to me. Still love me some Ruby.

Now we have to wait a bit so the Gemholders will update their gemspecs to support 2.5. Reverse backtrace printing, pp autoload and performance improvements are enough for me to switch to 2.5.0

The guys from plataformatec pushed some commits to the devise repo yesterday with "prepare for 4.4.0 release" as comment, which will be the 2.5.0 compatible release. However I would have loved to see their release on the same day as ruby 2.5.0, but never mind.

About to start up a small project using 2.5.0. My code uses only the freshest Ruby.
