I just finish migrating one of my projects and also discovered that in rails 3.1 they deprecated RAILS_ROOT in favour of Rails.root,RAILS_ENV in favour of Rails.env, and
RAILS_DEFAULT_LOGGER in favour of Rails.logge
I made the changes and the project seems to be working properly.
Thanks for the info Ryan.
