Hello folks, I've released cerise 0.2 at http://rubyforge.org/projects/cerise/

cerise is a web application server that follows a design somewhat similar to
J2EE servers but is much more lightweight and flexible since it is written
in Ruby. cerise is currently based on WEBrick, with Amrita templates, and
includes Ruby/DBI 0.0.20.

version 0.2 has the following features:

  * flexible request handler framework
  * amrita templates
  * user sessions
  * easy form input validation
  * DBI connection pools
  * user and role based access controls
  * Ruby based configuration files

Regards,
Will
