Sunspot (and Sunspot::Rails) version 1.0 has been released. This comes after several release candidates and community support and contributions. Sunspot 1.0 brings support for Solr 1.4, which adds several new built-in features like multiselect facets, named field facets, and assumed inconsistency.
With the release of Git 1.6.6, git has added smart HTTP transport, giving git much a more sophisticated HTTP interface. So, if you've had issues with git being blocked by firewalls or wanted to access your repository via HTTPS, then this may be just what you've been waiting for. On top of that, Scott Chacon of GitHub released Grack, a Rack-application built to serve your git repositories.
Just recently, Heroku added deployment stacks as a public beta. It can be accessed via the heroku gem, with heroku stack and heroku stack:migrate.
