Ruby on Rails heeft een upgrade naar versie 2.0.1 gekregen. Het web application framework kan vanaf deze pagina gedownload worden en wordt onder de MIT-licentie beschikbaar gesteld. Ruby on Rails stelt je in staat om websites en webapplicaties te ontwikkelen. Daarbij richt het framework zich voornamelijk op de ontwikkeling van sites en applicaties die gebruikmaken van database. Hieronder zijn de release notes van versie 2.0.1 gepost:
Rails 2.0 is finally finished after about a year in the making. This is a fantastic release that’s absolutely stuffed with great new features, loads of fixes, and an incredible amount of polish. We’ve even taken a fair bit of cruft out to make the whole package more coherent and lean.
What a milestone for Ruby on Rails as well. I’ve personally been working on this framework for about four and a half years and we have contributors who’ve been around for almost as long as well. It’s really satisfying to see how far we’ve come in that period of time. That we’ve proven the initial hype worthy, that we’ve been able to stick with it and continue to push the envelope.
Before jumping into the breakdown of features, I’d just like to extend my deep gratitude towards everyone who helped make this release possible. From the stable of merry men in the Rails core to the hundreds of contributors who got a patch applied to everyone who participated in the community over the year. This release is a triumph for large-scale open source development and you can all be mighty proud of the role you played. Cheers!
