Merb 1.0 Released

After two years of development, the first serious contender to challenge Ruby on Rails in the area of Ruby web application frameworks has reached 1.0 status: Merb. Created by Ezra Zugmuntowicz, Merb is built to be lightweight, less monolithic than Rails--i.e., you have your own choice of ORM, JavaScript, and templating frameworks--as well as thread-safe (which Rails, prior to the upcoming version 2.2 at least, was not).

You can get the gem from RubyForge with (something like) the following :

$ sudo gem install merb --include-dependencies

(Alternative site: —source http://edge.merbivore.com)

You can then generate your first Merb project and run it with the following:

$ merb-gen app my_application
$ cd my_application
$ merb

Then, of course, you'll want to read the documentation.
