New version of open source Ruby on Rails virtual software appliance

Hi everyone,

We just released a new version of our Ruby on Rails appliance:

In a nutshell, this is an extremely easy way to get a Rails stack up and
running in your VM (VMware, VirtualBox, Xen, KVM) of choice in just a
couple of minutes.

Changes in the last version:

  • The appliance was rebuilt on top of TurnKey Core, the new common base
    for all our software appliances, which is assembled from Ubuntu 8.04.2
    LTS packages.

  • A bug in the daily auto-updates mechanism was fixed.

  • Significant usability and security enhancements were made, including
    confconsole support for systems with multiple NICs, password-free
    login in demo mode.

  • Security enhancements: SSL support, database password setting during
    installation, the inclusion of many generically useful Webmin modules,
    and improved embedded documentation.

Full details and documentation on the web site.
