The Ruby on Rails 3.0.3 Web development framework was released this week, restoring performance lost when the open source framework was upgraded to Rails 3.x.

The upgrade bolsters the Active Record technology in Rails, which provides the basis for models in Rails applications along with such capabilities as data validation and database independence. "How about some free speed? Well, here you go. Rails 3.0.3 includes a much faster version of Active Record that reclaims the performance lost when we went from Rails 2.3.x to 3.x and then some," Rails founder David Heinemeier Hansson in a blog post.

[ Hansson had some unkind words for Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer earlier this year. | Stay on top of the latest developer news with InfoWorld's Developer World newsletter. ]

Version 3.0.3 also features minor fixes, Hansson said. "So everything just works better and faster. What more can you ask for? Oh, that it's a drop-in replacement for Rails 3.0 -- there are no API changes. You got it." Rails 3.0 was released in late-August, offering boosted performance capabilities as a result of a merger with the Merb framework. Cross-site scripting protection by default also was included.

LIFEBOOK UH574

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

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.

STYLISTIC Q702

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.
