If the Mayans had known about NewRelic, they might not have been so concerned about 2012. You too can sleep at night knowing your servers are being monitored 24x7. NewRelic now offers three kinds of monitoring in one tool - Real User Monitoring, Application Monitoring, and Server monitoring. If there is a piece of data to collect someplace between the seek time of the hard drive and your user's chair, NewRelic can get it for you.
Rails 3.2 release candidate 2 is out. Biggest change: Plugins are now deprecated and will be removed for Rails 4. Time to gemify that code!
Ruby 1.8.6 support is a thing of the past, bugs have been eradicated, mime types have been added, and some lower level cleanup on verbs and response codes.

Take a look at Middleman, the static site generation tool.
You've built an awesome website using the latest in css3 goodness, when someone asks "How does it look in IE?" You knew that question was coming, but you couldn't bring yourself to look. With deCSS3, you can bring that check closer into your development workflow. Put it in your browsers menu bar as a bookmarklet, and you can toggle some css3 rules on and off to see how well your site degrades.
xray is a bookmarklet that lets you inspect page elements for their dimensions and styles. Dimensions display right in the browser as rulers.
Ever need to figure out the best selector to pick a page element out of the DOM? with MRI, you can click on a page element, and it'll give you a list of selectors that can target it.
