Updates: They happen.
Rails is happy to release for your testing delight: Rails 3.1 Beta 1.
We’ve taken our first release step towards the final version of Rails 3.1 today with the unveiling of beta 1. This is a release mostly for people who’ve already been following along with the development of Rails 3.1 and want to try a version that’s close to feature complete.

Let us know if you develop anything cool as a result!
This is pretty cool! If you watch the screencast you will see how easy this rack server is to setup!
This is got to be a must have for anyone developing multiple apps, and especially for those who are running a business with multiple developers.

I like! I think you will too! Get it here.
