Yesterday while I was on the plane to RubyConf, ONLamp.com published my latest Rails article. Basically, its a roadmap to the upcoming Rails 1.0 feature-set.
I actually wrote this back in August because that was the original target date for the release of Rails 1.0, and I wanted to publish this at the same time that Rails 1.0 was released. But after the release got pushed back several times, we decided to publish it before RubyConf started (which is today!).
Good news! DHH and the core Rails commit team are all here at RubyConf, and DHH tells me that they are trying very hard to get a Rails 1.0 release candidate out by this Sunday!
