Write-up of the IronRuby RailsConf 2009 talk:
http://blog.jimmy.schementi.com/2009/05/ironruby-a...
Hightlights:

-          IronRuby runs real Rails applications:

o   Along with other Ruby web frameworks:

-          Using ActiveRecord outside of Rails is useful for simple
database interaction (migrations, for example), and in WinForms
databinding with ActiveRecord.

-          New project to enable deploying Rack-based applications on
IIS with IronRuby:
http://github.com/jschementi/ironruby/tree/master/...

-          Direct integration with ASP.NET through ironruby-mvc:

-          Special thanks to contributors and starting projects based on
IronRuby: http://github.com/ironruby/ironruby-contrib

o   More information on contributing to IronRuby:
http://wiki.github.com/ironruby/ironruby/contributing

-          Project statics on http://ironruby.info: 84% RubySpec
pass-rate.

-          Startup performance has also been a focus of improvement as
of late, and by building an adaptive interpreter/compiler (like
IronPython now has) Rails startup time decreased from about 85 to 30
seconds (2.8x improvement), without sacrifice for throughput
performance!
