Hi, I am developing on Win XP at the moment for an NGO that seems stuck on the idea that Win2003 Server is the future. Much as I have tried to convert them to a unix environment, they're having none of it. I am using the prebuilt Win32 release of ferret 0.10.9 and would like to upgrade to the latest version for the latest features etc but more importantly to solve an issue with bug reporting in Rail 1.2.1 which seems to be braking when ferret is required and included (well this is at least the case when using ferret from /script/runner). When I require and include ferret any bugs (even those unrelated to ferret) fail to be reported correctly with messages that start: ...active_support/dependencies.rb:423:in `remove_const': cannot remove Object::<VARIOUS> (NameError) Where <VARIOUS> are things like QueryParser, Field etc. I have tried compiling ferret myself but I only have mingw installed and the ferret rails task seems to want to use nmake (MVC?). Thanks, Chad.
