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.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
