Matt Tanase, the founder of Slicehost, recently released blueprint. Blueprint is software that reverse engineers your Ubuntu configuration and gives you bash, Chef, or Puppet scripts to be able to instantly recreate your system on a new machine. It catches package installs, source installs, file changes, and more.
The team at HarvestApp recently released RankedModel, an ARel-based acts_as_list replacement with an interesting position storage technique. Rather than just storing position 1, 2, 3.. it inserts into a range of 0 to 65000 and does a simple order query. That way, most inserts are just a simple insert and no position updates are required.
Also, the guys at Codegram released their own acts_as_list variant, based on a linked list. It means that inserts are quick, but pagination may be an issue.
If you need to grow out your database tier and are looking for slaves and failover support, then seamless_database_pool by William Harding may be worth a look. With it, you can easily add new slaves to your deployment and those slaves get automatic failover support.
