Hi there. I've noticed the traffic on this list has diminished in terms of issues in Nitro and Og, which I'm taking as a sign of stability and therefore a Good Thing. So the sixty-four thousand dollar question is, when are we going to get a 0.50 release? George blogged the "finishing touches" for 0.50 back in August last year according to http://www.nitroproject.org/blog. (On a side note, the permalink for that entry throws a 500 error.) It would be great to see 0.50 appear in my gem update. I really would love to see a realistic alternative to rails that I could use in anger with client projects. Consider this a gentle nudge from an enthusiastic supporter :) Thanks, Dan

Nice to hear that people are still interested in Nitro ;-) As far as I am concerned, the version in the repository is ready for release as 0.50. I use it on a production web site with no problems. I though Tom (trans) would help me with packaging the gems, but I 've lost track of him lately. So I will try to package the gems and release 0.50 this week. so, stay tunned ;-) -g.

Hooray! And even if something goes badly wrong, you can always put out a 0.51 the following day :)

I'm not sure; but it seemed migrations or schema evolutions are easier with Og than with DM. I'll have to research more to figure it out. It seems there is no good online resource of the difference between them. Off Topic Idea: One idea I'm thinking about is to create an "intersection wiki" that would contain articles on the intersections between two concepts, to compare and contrast them and such. Therefore you could have an article such as "DataMapper+Og" which would be the intersection article of the keywords DataMapper and Og. This Intersection wiki then could be used to document things like this.

I was thinking about writing a very similar email. I might have mentioned the comment link problem too. But mostly, I am anxious to have the latest versions of Nitro and Og as gems. :) -Greg
