Rails and Merb Projects to Merge
Saw this on Dr. Dobb’s Code Talk today. Big news for the Ruby community and really makes a lot of horse sense. The Merb and Rails projects are planned to merge. Merb 2.0 and Rails 3.0 will be the same.
Check out the blog posts by Rails creator David Heinemeier Hansson and Merb project lead -- and now Rails core team member -- Yehuda Katz for more in-depth discussion of how this will work. And, these guys are taking a pragmatic approach to make sure it is done right.
Speaking of Jimmy, check out his blog post Jimmy hacking (at) Microsoft. A really good perspective on dynamic languages, Ruby, the DLR, Silverlight, Rails and Silverline.
