Joe Alba recently released gitswitch, a gem to manage your git "credentials" when you use multiple name and/or email address pairs. So, if you have personal vs work git settings, or maybe you pair program and want to record that in your commits, this may be worth a look.
Andrew McElroy wrote in to let us know about a new release of TryRuby.org. This update recodes the side using Rails and now works with Ruby 1.9.2. It's a great resource to send to a friend or to introduce your coworkers to the wonderful world of Ruby.
If you're just beginning with Ruby and find some of the conventions, calls, and patterns a bit cryptic, then ExplainRuby.net may be your new best friend. Mislav recently released it and using a copy/paste of a Ruby snippet or a URL of a Gist, Pastie, or more, you can find out exactly what's going on.

So now, you can ship entire portions of your application as modular components.
