This release is unchanged from release candidate 1 other than to update
version number in the Help>>About dialog.
Instant Rails is a one-stop Rails runtime solution containing Ruby,
Apache, and MySQL, all preconfigured and ready to run. No installer, you
simply drop it into the directory of your choice and run it. It does not
modify your system environment. This release of Instant Rails is for
Windows, but there are plans for ports to Linux, BSD, and OSX.
The Instant Rails home page has links for downloading and getting
with Instant Rails:

Upgraded to SCGI Rails Runer 0.4.3
Added “fxri” to the help menu.
Fixed a problem where console windows were being opened in the
wrong current directory. This meant that ruby\bin wasn’t being
put on the path which, in turn, meant you couldn’t execute the
“gem” or “rails” commands.
Fixed several minor problems.
Created this change log! Also, added a ToDo.txt file.
