I am happy as well as confused with this Rails 3.0 == Merb 2.0 scenario.
I understand within few months ( during RailsConf 2009, in May 2009 )
Rails 3.0 will be out to the public, and there would be no more
But…Still there are 100 days to go
My question is… should i follow the currently available Rails books
now or should i read the current Merb book and tutorials online.
I am keen to know… what will happen in future…
(1) Will Rails look more like Merb…? OR…
(2) Will Merb will look like Rails …?
(3) What features should i study now in Rails, which will be helpful in
(4) What features of Merb should i read now for future.
I understand that the Rails team is going to adopt the best of features
from Rails and Merb. But which features are going forward and which
would be canceled are still not clear, and that’s what creates puzzles
in my mind.
Today is exactly one month after the Merge was announced, and many
things are still hanging around.( Merger was announced on Dec 23rd, 2008
There are still 100 days to go for Rails 3.0, and i would like to use my
100 days in the best possible manner, so that i can be in tune with
Rails 3.0. I do not want to waste my efforts after deprecated features.
I am sure many would be puzzled like me here… What measures should we
take now… I hope few experts would come forward to guide us and make
next 100 days a rewarding experience.
