At RubyNation, Gregg spoke with Joe Damato and Ruby Hero Aman Gupta who recently released the Memprof web service. Memprof allows you to collect memory usage information from a Ruby process and immediately upload it to their service. Then, you can delve into the memory heap to isolate and solve any memory leak problems.
Magnus Holm has recently released an update to _why's Camping framework. Release 2.0 adds heavy Rack support, which brings Rack::Session and Rack middleware among other benefits. And yet, the entire framework is still below 4kB.
At RubyNation last week, Nick Gauthier introduced his new testing library, called Hydra. Hydra is a distributed testing framework which allows you to not only run them locally, on a remote worker, or even a cluster of workers. It actively balances your tests and allows you to run them in parallel for more efficient testing.
Michael Edgar recently took the time to port the peer-reviewed, open source C++ Boost.Regexp library to Ruby. The hope was that the Ruby Boost::Regexp, while staying API-compatible, might out-perform the conventional implementations in Ruby 1.8 and/or 1.9. And, with his recent benchmarks, it appears as though it has.
The tickets are slowly piling up over in the Ruby on Rails Lighthouse and so, now is your chance to contribute something back to the community. Remember the libraries and frameworks that you use, by and large, are free and open source and they are built and maintained by people just like you. So, if you have the time, please give back; find a ticket and fix it up! The more people that contribute, then the closer we will all get to Rails 3.
Stephen Eley recently released Candy, a simple object persistence layer for MongoDB. It avoids the ActiveRecord-style interface (skipping save and find) in favor of immediate writes and employs a method chaining-syntax for finders. It's licensed under the DBAD license, but you'll have to check it out to find out more.
