It has been made official. The title of the first Rails book is going to be Agile Web Development with Rails
and its currently being written by Dave Thomas. A small group of
reviewers, including yours truly, have been reviewing the first
chapters as they come of Daves printing fingers already. And its
looking mighty good!
A few choice bits from the introduction to the book:
see how easy it is to install Rails using your web server of choice
(such as Apache or lighttpd) or using its own included web server.
Youll be writing applications that work with your favorite database
(MySQL, Oracle, Postgres, and more) in no time at all.
create a complete online store application in the extended tutorial
section, so youll see how a full Rails application is
developed-iteratively and rapidly.
Rails is the framework of choice for the new generation of Web 2.0 developers.
