Maintaining and synchronizing software translations is a hassle: Rails uses YAML files for texts, but translators do not. linguist changes that by connecting developers and translators. Translators do their work through linguist's intuitive web interface, while developers pull those changes from linguist's server with a simple Rake task. After all, developers shouldn't translate. Am I write? Register now for the upcoming Beta release.
Ruby on Rails 2.3.6 was officially released earlier this weekend. This update spans six months of effort by 87 contributors. With its support library version bumps, deprecations, and fixes, version 2.3.6 moves everything one step closer to Rails 3.
Rails 2.3.7 was officially released this Sunday and is now available on Rubygems.org. Covering about 10 hours of effort, this released features 12 new contributions by a staggering, three committers.

We have a strong affinity for content which is delivered in 5 minutes or less. And, over on vimcasts, Drew Neil just put together a really useful screencast making use of the interactive_editor gem. With it, you gain a new command in IRB called "vi" which launches an external Vim session in which you can create and edit your IRB code. It's worth a quick look, especially since it's only about 5 minutes long.
With the recent release of Rubinius 1.0 and JRuby 1.5, Mitko Kostov decided to run through Antonio Cangiano’s ruby-benchmark suite.

The Ruby Summer of Code site has just been updated with the twenty projects, their students, and mentors being run this summer.
