Rails 2.3 preview eyed for Monday

Multiple improvements planned for Web framework upgrade, including Rack integration and more efficient routing.

A release candidate for version 2.3 of the popular Ruby on Rails Web application development framework is being targeted for release today, the founder of the project, David Heinemeier Hansson, said on Friday.

General release of the platform probably will follow a few weeks later, he said.

Rails 2.3 features Rack integration, enabling Rails to work together more easily with other Ruby frameworks; refreshed support for Rails Engines, which are Rails applications that can be embedded within other applications; and nested transactions for Active Record and unified rendering, for easier rendering. More efficient routing also is featured as is Rails Metal, for authoring parts of an application directly in Ruby to boost performance.

A release candidate for the ambitious Rails 3 release, which merges Rails with the Merb Web framework, has been expected this May.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
