What's New in Rails 2.0?

Ryan and David will cover the significant new features and changes from Ruby on Rails 2.0, which was released in December 2007 after almost a year of development.  We'll basically follow the outline in the announcement post, and we'll provide code examples and live demos illustrating the major changes.  We'll also discuss effective migration strategies for Rails applications developed under previous versions of Rails.
