>Hello everyone,
>
>New versions of Nitro (Web Application Framework) and Og (Object
>Relational Mapping) were released:
>
>Homepage: http://www.nitrohq.com
>Download: http://rubyforge.org/projects/ nitro
>Mailing List: http://rubyforge.org/mailman/listinfo/nitro-general
>
>A snapshot of the latest developments. Many requested features
>where implemented, and many reported bugs fixed.
>
>* The much requested Og 'reverse mode' is implemented. Og's
>domain specific language and API is extended to allow fine-grained
>customization of the schema-to-objects mapping. Og can now handle
>most of the legacy schemas you can throw at it. Here is an
>example:
>
>class User
>   property :name, String, :field => :thename, :uniq => true
>   property :password, String
>   property :age, Fixnum, :field => :age3
>   has_many Comment, :foreign_field => :user
>   set_table :my_users
>   set_primary_key :name, String
>end
>
>class Comment
>   property :cid, Fixnum
>   property :body, String
>   belongs_to User, :field => :user
>   set_table :my_comments
>   set_primary_key :cid
>end
>
>As you can see, even relation fields can be customized. For
>higher level customization you can overload methods like #table,
>#field_for_property etc.
>
>* Og now handles multiple connections to multiple stores even
>in thread safe mode. This means you can now have objects serialized
>in different RDBM systems in the same application. Or you can have
>some objects managed by an RDBMS store and others by a FAST
>in-memory store. You can still have relations between objects in
>different stores. An example:
>
>mysql = Og.setup(:store => :mysql, ..)
>psql = Og.setup(:store => :psql, ..)
>
>class User
>   has_many Comment
>end
>
>class Comment
>   belongs_to User
>end
>
>mysql.manage_class User
>psql.manage_class Comment
>
>user.comments << comment
>
>* Greatly improved support for testing and test-driven-development.
>A reworked testing infrastructure for controllers is in place.
>Moreover, support for Og fixtures and automatic test database
>setup is provided. Fixtures can be defined with yml or csv files.
>
>For an example of the testing infrastructure check out the
>Spark 0.4.0 sources. Spark is a Wiki powered by Nitro.
>
>* Reworked mailer implementation. The new mailer allows for
>incoming email handling. Here is an example:
>
>class Mailman < Glue::Mailer
>	def receive(mail)
>		article = Article.new(mail.subject, mail.body)
>		article.category = Category.find_by_name(mail.to.split('@').first)
>		article.save
>	end
>end
>
>* Added script/runner in proto as a convenience to running
>ruby code in your application environment.
>
>* Many fixes in the caching infrastructure.
>
>* Many fixes in the XMLRPC service infrastructure.
>
>* Many smaller changes and new features that make
>development with Nitro so much more pleasurable.
>
>
>Nitro provides everything you need to develop professional Web
>applications using Ruby and Javascript.
>
>Nitro redefines Rapid Application Development by providing a
>clean, yet efficient API, a layer of domain specific languages
>implemented on top of Ruby and the most powerful and elegant
>object relational mapping solution available everywhere.

>have fun,
