Rails 1.1 is out!

So Rails 1.1 is out. I’ve spent the morning upgrading my development environment (Mac OS X still – the dual boot is coming real soon now) to Rails 1.1, and installed Lighty and the FastCGI bindings for Ruby so I can run a better development environment.
What a royal pain!
Seriously, I don’t know how any Unix-like operating system can function without apt – apt is the part of Debian and Ubuntu that sets it years ahead of anything else. Other distributions have similar things, and OS X has DarwinPorts and Fink, but they’re not part of the core distribution. Apple is talking about Rails, maybe they will sort out packaging in 10.5 – by then, I’ll be on Ubuntu anyway.
