Deploy and migrate with a single Capistrano command

Note that this sounds good but is not good at all when hooking tasks on cap deploy (see this article). Make sure to hook your calls properly when using this.

To deploy an application and run all pending migrations before restarting it, you can use the following standard Capistrano task:

cap deploy:migrations

Little is known what happens when the deployment goes through, but a migration or a rake task afterwards fails. Please update this note when you find out.
