I've seen a variety of mumbled pre-announcements, second hand announcements, and outright rumours over the last couple of days. I thought I'd collect them here, and see if anyone wanted to confirm, deny, or add some more.
- There's more autotest functionality on the horizon, after a refactoring
- It looks like ZenTest will be supporting Behavior Driven Development (BDD) and rspec soon
- Wrox is looking into entering the Ruby on Rails book fray with at least a couple of titles
- Canada on Rails went well enough that there will probably be a European Country on Rails Conference this year
- A group of Michigan based groups are putting together a Michigan Ruby Conference for late this summer or early this fall.
I'm looking forward to seeing these come to pass. I thnk they'd all be good things for the Ruby community.
