Don't use PDFKit v0.5.4 – it breaks on dead urls

When I upgraded from 0.5.4 PDFKit deadlocked or crashed when an ApplicationController::RouteError occured. If this error happens only because of a broken image link you probably still wan't the page to render and get a PDF with a "missing image placeholder" instead.

I don't know yet in which version (0.5.2, 0.5.3 or 0.5.4) the bug was built in. At the moment I'm doing fine with 0.5.1 and I didn't evaluate any other versions yet.

I will update this card as soon as I know further information (State 4th Nov. 2013).

Does your version of Ruby on Rails still receive security updates?
Rails LTS provides security patches for unsupported versions of Ruby on Rails (2.3, 3.2, 4.2 and 5.2).
