The long-awaited release of Rails 3 has finally arrived and with it a new one-click installer on the control panel.
Rails 3 is the culmination of two years of effort and a merge of the Rails and Merb projects. This major release sports numerous improvements, such as:
railscommand replaces the individual commands in the
scriptsdirectory. For example,
- Improved security: cross-site scripting (XSS) protection is included by default with Rails 3.
- Easier email: Action Mailer has been redone with improved syntax and new options.
But that’s merely a small taste of what’s changed in the latest version of Rails. Check out the complete release notes for details on everything that’s changed since Rails 2.
