The Welcome to Rails image is more inclusive

When playing with the new beta of Rails I noticed a more inclusive image

I was just starting to play with the new beta of Rails and I noticed the new welcome to Rails image is way more inclusive than what I remembered from before.

I pulled up a version from Rails 5.2.2 to compare and I was right!

The latest version of Rails (6.0.0.beta at the time of writing) includes a person in a wheelchair and a person wearing a turban.

Representation matters, and this is great to see from such a popular framework.

Kudos and love to the Rails team!

Here is the image from the latest version of Rails.

And here is the image from 5.2.2.

Also interesting to note the image has moved from being a .jpeg to a .png.

If you want to play with a new beta but don’t know how to install it, I’ve written a guide.
