Try it out and report back? I haven't made the jump yet, but I'm sure someone will pipe up with recommendations at some point.

A Ruby 1.9 compatible version of mysql-ruby is available from its author's website: http://tmtm.org/mysql/ruby/. Fastthread isn't needed to run mongrel under Ruby 1.9, the mongrel gem still seems to require it though. Tell rubygems to ignore its dependencies like so: gem install mongrel --ignore-dependencies. If rubygems fails to build native extensions for mongrel try changing all occurences of RSTRING("FOOBAR")->ptr with RSTRING_PTR("FOOBAR") and similarly RSTRING("FOOBAR")->len with RSTRING_LEN("FOOBAR") in http11.c. Then try building again like so: ruby extconf.rb. Compile with make and install with make install. This might have already been fixed upstream though so try ignoring dependencies during installation first! Best, Niels

I created the following tutorial in regards to using both Ruby 1.9.1 and Rails 2.3.0: "Using MacPorts To Install Ruby 1.9.1 and Rails 2.3.0 RC1" Good luck, -Conrad
