Ruby on Rails 2.3 arrives

The latest version of the open source Web framework is 'out the door,' according to Rails site.

Ruby on Rails 2.3, the latest version of the popular open source Web development framework, is now available, according to the Rails Web site.

A posting earlier this month revealed the release.

"Rails 2.3 is finally done and out the door. This is one of the most substantial upgrades to Rails in a very long time," according to a blog post on the Rails site.

Key features of version 2.3 include: templates, allowing a new skeleton Rails application to built with a developer's own default stack of configurations; engines, to share reusable application pieces; Rack, for accessing middleware; Metal, for writing optimized logic, and nested forms, to make complex forms easier.

The Rails team in May is expected to offer up an early version of Rails 3, which will serve as a merger of the Rails and Merb frameworks.

Rails was the brainchild of developer David Heinemeier Hansson.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
