Ruby on Rails 1.2 Released

Ruby on Rails 1.2 has been released! This is the latest version of the popular framework for building web applications. Coinciding with this release of Rails 1.2 is the release of Prototype 1.5. Prototype is the JavaScript framework that powers the rich functionality of many web applications.

Ruby on Rails dramatically altered the way people build web applications. With the 1.2 release, it continues to influence thought patterns by bringing REST to the forefront. REST provides a set of principles for the design of network-based software. By presenting these patterns to a mainstream audience, Rails is having a profound impact on the future of software development.

The release also has numerous other improvements, including Unicode support, a new URL routing implementation, and better module loading.
