Engines 1.1 Release
The Rails Engines plugin has been updated to work with the new Rails
1.1 release. Engines 1.1 is now available via script/plugin, and
through SVN at

Using SVN is *highly recommended*, and SVN externals are excellent for
keeping your plugins in sync (see
for more information about svn externals). If you prefer to use the
script/plugin command, please run the following commands to ensure
that you have are updating to the correct version

   $ script/plugin discover
   $ script/plugin install engines

Rails Engines are a way of dropping in whole chunks of functionality
into your existing application without affecting any of your existing
code. They could also be described as application aspects, or vertical
application slices ? top-to-bottom units which provide full MVC
coverage for a certain, specific application function. Engines can be
as lightweight as the simplest plugin, or as full-featured as your
your imagination can conceive.

Please see for more information.

What's New/Changed
* Updated to work with Rails 1.1
* Rake tasks now integrate with Rails' own namespaces, i.e.
      $ rake db:migrate:engines
* Many bug-fixes

are even better) at Alternatively, post
