Yet another RC release (Merb 1.0 RC4)

Yesterday, Yehuda Katz annouced Merb 1.0 RC3 released and today we re released the same version with a hotfix (some dependencies got broken).

Here is a quick sum up:

  • improved the testing framework with full webrat integration.
  • merb-action-args works with ParseTree 2.x and 3.x.
  • improved merb-auth
  • dependency “parse_tree”, :require_as => “ParseTree” { # do stuff after the gem is loaded }. You can also pass :immediate => true   (great to use gems from GitHub)
  • improved Windows and JRuby support

1.0 final is expected to be released during Ruby Conf.

On a different note, the MerbCamp videos were released today. Check out the videos there.

A big thank to Patrick Crowley and Rob Kaufman for taking care of the encoding videos.

Merb 1.0 RC should be released tomorrow with a new option to get started with a Merb stack including Merb Core, Merb More, DataMapper Core with sqlite3 adapter and few plugins from DM more.

You will still be able to only use the modules you want, add/remove components, build a Sinatra like app etc.. The only difference is that if you wish to do so, we offer a packaged version of Merb that we guarantee working together. The exciting thing about the stack is that we included stuff most people will need such as builtin very flexible authentication, notification exceptions etc…

Watch the conf to learn more about the goodies in Merb 1.0

Go Merb!

UPDATE: FiveRuns MerbCamp sponsor, just released TuneUp for Merb! Awesome!
