Instant Rails is a one-stop Rails runtime solution containing Ruby, Rails,
Apache, and MySQL, all preconfigured and ready to run. No installer, you
simply drop it into the directory of your choice and run it. It does not
modify your system environment. This release of Instant Rails is for
Windows, but there are plans for ports to Linux, BSD, and OSX.

This release upgrades Rails to 1.1 and the included Ruby runtime to
the One-Click Ruby Installer 1.8.4-16 rc1.

Two sample Rails applications come preinstalled: cookbook (which runs
with Rails 1.1) and Typo (which is still using its own copy of Rails
1.0). We will make another release of Instant Rails when Typo has been
made to work with Rails 1.1.

For testing purposes (both for us and for you) this also includes the
Ruby based Mongrel web server. This is currently available from the
command line only. See the Mongrel site for more details:
