Brian Underwood wrote in to let us know about job_boss, a new library for processing jobs, asynchronously. It's built on ActiveRecord, it runs a single daemon with multiple workers, and each worker is killed and replaced once its job is complete.
Relatively recently, Antek Piechnik and Michał Bugno released BigTuna, a Rails 3-based continuous integration server.

Timetrap is a command line time tracker written in Ruby, recently released by Sam Goldstein. It allows you to maintain multiple time sheets, easily log and edit your recorded time, and unlike many of the hosted solutions out there, it's free.
We're passionate about testing. We're [not always so] passionate about writing documentation. What if we could mix the two, and test our documented code examples? Well, Stephen Celis is working on RDoctest, which does just that. It's inspired by Python's Doctest, but it's written in Ruby and supports testing single line, multi-line, and IRB code examples.

Engine Yard recently released a Vagrant-built virtual machine image that it uses when training Ruby and Rails to new developers. Since it's a virtual machine, the host operating system can be ignored and the image provides a clean, stable environment with several editors, packages, and gems pre-installed. It's a simple way to get someone into Ruby and Rails who may be hesitant to take the plunge.
