General Development Ruby on Rails 2.0 has been released. "Rails 2.0 is finally finished after about a year in the making. This is a fantastic release that's absolutely stuffed with great new features, loads of fixes, and an incredible amount of polish. We've even taken a fair bit of cruft out to make the whole package more coherent and lean." On Zenbits, they give tips on how to install 2.0.

I don't think you can use the words "C++" and "painlessly" in the same sentence. ;)

Trust me, coding in Qt is nothing like coding in regular C++. It's like a whole different language.

I find these comments interesting. It suggests to me that coding the interface can be such a pain that it overrides considerations as to what language is best for solving that actual problems. In general, I prefer a dynamically typed, interpreted or byte code language for... well... most everything. It is a pity that with web apps, the pain and general suckiness of coding the user interface itself overshadows the actual problem to be solved.
