This feature is scheduled for: Rails v3.0
Wow, from the bombshell department comes the news that Rails and Merb will be merging to form Rails 3. It seems the Rails and Merb teams have acknowledged that there is good in both frameworks and that they can be combined into a singular web framework.
To be honest I don’t love the idea of having less choice in Ruby web-framework world. However, I do think this bodes well for Rails. We can only hope innovation stays alive within the combined team (and that their perspectives only enhance each other and don’t outright conflict).
Little ‘ole Rails is definitely growing up – lots of big stuff coming in Rails 3…
