ANN: Sequel 0.5 Released

Sequel version 0.5 has just been released. Sequel is a lightweight
database access and ORM library for Ruby. Sequel provides thread
safety, connection pooling and a simple and expressive API for
constructing database queries and table schemas.

This release separates the Sequel::Model class from the rest of Sequel
and into its own separate gem, called sequel_model. The simplest way
to install or upgrade sequel is to install the sequel_model gem:

sudo gem install sequel_model

This will also update your sequel core installation to version 0.5.

Does this mean sequel is faster then AR? Does it work better with
legacy databases? Is it more compatible with stored procedures and
views?

Thanks.

Sequel cannot really be compared to AR. It is a much better tool for
working with large data sets and legacy databases. It does support
selecting records from views and stored procedures. You can make up
your own mind by giving it a spin.
