Instant Rails 1.4 final released (with RadRails support!)

This is the final release for Instant Rails 1.4. It corrects the two
known problems with the preview1 release (two help menu items
caused Instant Rails to crash). Instant Rails 1.4 contains the following
major changes:

  • Upgrades Rails to version 1.1.6
    (other components upgraded to current release, also)

  • SCGI has been replaced by Mongrel (using Apache’s
    mod_proxy for forward requests).

  • For the development server, WEBrick has also been
    replaced by Mongrel.

  • Automatic RadRails configuration: if your choose
    your Instant Rails “rails_apps” subdirectory as
    your workspace, then all of the RadRails paths
    (to ruby, rake, ri, rdoc, etc.) will be automatically
    set.

Known Problems

There are two known problems: If you select the menu items
“Help > Getting Started” or “Help > Release Notes”, Instant
Rails will crash. For the time being, you can read these two
topics from the web site:

How does the mysql update work, I don’t want to lose what’s in there

Is that in the documentation ?
