My apologies to all who downloaded preview6, it did not contain Rails
advertised – I screwed up!
Preview7 does, in fact, contain Rails 1.0 and as a bonus, also includes
2.6.0 as a preinstalled sample app. See the Getting Started page for
instructions on running Typo in Instant Rails:
Also, you can thank David M. for getting Typo into Instant Rails (he
just joined the Instant Rails development team!).
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 for
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:
If you already have Instant Rails installed, then be sure to read the

2005-10-27: Instant Rails 1.0 preview3
Upgraded Rails to Rails 1.0: The Release Candidate 3 (aka 0.14.2)
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.
