This article only applies to apps on the Bamboo stack. New Bamboo apps can no longer be created. The most recent stack is Cedar-14.

Bamboo is a deployment stack on Heroku. It has been succeeded by Cedar. It runs on Debian 5.0 (lenny) and offers two Ruby VMs: Ruby Enterprise Edition 2011.03 1.8.7-p334, and MRI 1.9.2-p180.

They both use rubygems 1.3.7. Apps running on the Bamboo stack must explicitly declare their gem dependencies.


Existing Bamboo applications can migrate to the Cedar stack using these instructions.
