Seems things in the Rails world are moving faster and fast, but it could be just me. Congrats to the Rails dev team for their release this morning of Ruby on Rails 3.2!
So we didn’t quite make the December release date as we intended, but hey, why break a good tradition and start hitting release targets now! In any case, your patience has been worldly rewarded young grasshopper: Rails 3.2 is done, baked, tested, and ready to roll!
Biggest thing in here for Ruby Newbies I think is the explain queries, which will show exactly what’s going on and help with debugging and performance tuning. Other things of note is a faster dev mode, an active record key/value store (look out noSQL databases!) and much more.
