Dear devs,

new versions of Nitro and Og where just released

homepage: http://www.nitrohq.com
install: gem install nitro
download: http://rubyforge.org/projects/nitro/
irc: irc.freenode.net #nitro
mailing list: http://rubyforge.org/pipermail/nitro-general/

Whats new:

Once again we have a great mix of cool new features, along
with bugfixes and a myriad of smaller improvements. Go and
download the most advanced Ruby Web/ORM Framework you can find.

Most notable changes:

* Added groundbreaking client side action/scripting support:

  class FlickrDemo < Nitro::Controller
    helper :javascript

    class Client
      # Actions defined here are executed as javescript in the
      # browser.
      def clear_me
        hide :hide_me
      end

      def grab
        ajax_upadate ...
      end
    end
  end

  in the template:

  <div id="hide_me">...</div>
  <a client="clear_me">clear</a>

  the client element is converted to a javascript call that
  executes the code in the client action. A domain specific
  language is provided for the client action to implement stuff
  like ajax async updates, scriptaculous visual fx and more.

* A collection of morphers to work along with client actions.
  Here are some examples:

  <!-- make a div draggable -->
  <div id="hello" draggable="true">Drag me</div>

  <!-- autocomplete a text field -->
  <input type="text" name="tags" auto_complete="true" />

  in the controller:

  def tags_auto_complete
    %{
    <ul>
      <li>navel</li>
      <li>nitro</li>
      <li>sexy</li>
    </ul>
    }
  end

  More stuff is coming in future versions.

* Greatly imporoved the Elements system. The ElementMixin module
  is auto-injected if missing. Nitro automatically transforms
  xhtml template files in the Element.template_root into
  Element classes for even better separation of code and design.
  A simple Rails style layout helper is implememnted on top of
  the general and powerful Elements mechanism for people familiar
  with Rails.

* New WebFile system. Uploading files and handling photos was
  never easier:

  class Photo
    is Timestamped
    is Taggable
    property :title, String
    property :file, WebFile, :magick => { :small => '64x64', :medium
=> '128x128' }
  end

  # the upload action

  def upload
    photo = Photo.assign(request)
    photo.save
  end

  This saves the photo, and creates 2 thumbnails. You can easily
  access the photo and thumbnails like this:

  <img src="#{photo.file_medium_thumbnail}" />
  <img src="#{photo.file_small_thumbnail}" />

  ie obj.{propertyname}_#{thumbname}_thumbnail

* Og live collections support accumulation. Here is an example:

  class Category
    has_many :projects
  end

  class Project
    has_many :clients
  end

  class Client
  end

  clients = category.projects.clients

  # => returns all clients for this category!

* Improved TableHelper, better configurability, more skinnable,
  sorting support and more.

* Added some intelligent auto-discovery features to minimize the
  setup code. For example helpers are automatically loaded, and
  the template_root is auto-discovered.

* Optimized the autoreloading system to only reload the dirty
  files. In fact the new autoreloading system is so efficient
  that it is enables by default even in live/production mode.

* Added Flickr, a great new example that shows off the new
  javascript integration and AJAX features of Nitro.

* Added Gallery example to demonstrate the new WebFile
  functionality.

* Improved the generated RDOC comments.

* Fixes in CGI adapter.

* Added evolution support to the KirbyBase adapter.

* Updated to scriptaculous 1.5.1

* Scaffolding - auto admin interface improvements.

* Added setup.rb for non-gem installation (experimental).

* Added ACGI adapter (experimental).

Ehm, I don't deserve all the credit.
The latest Nitro/Og releases are a real community effort ;-)

Hi George,

  I am following the progress of Nitro/Og with great interest and plan
to use it on my next project. Mean while, is there any eStore kind of
app out there somewhere? Are there plans to interface payment gateways
in near future?

  Thanks,

Hello, I know that www.motionpath.co.uk have released a number of
e-store applications powered by Nitro/Og. Moreover, you can use some
Ruby bindings for payment gateways with Nitro. Have a look at
rubyforge.org for more details.
