||Clean01 #01 WeekBits||Foreword I'm starting the project to serve you the WeekBits as a podcast, so I' starting to renumber, and starting now with the number 01. Transcription Welcome to the first issue of the WeekBits podcast. Maybe you know that I used to write the weekbits weekly on my blog chrisdo.org, so I thought it would be interesting to serve you the weekbits in audible format as a podcast, but also with a transcription. I'm going to tell you some inetersting news about the last week, it should be published every sunday or monday morning mid european time, so have fun! The todays subjects are the two new versions of the web framework Ruby on Rails, Tom S. Webers first year blogging on tomsw.org and the Apples WWDC (world wide developer conference). Two new versions of the web framework Ruby on Rails Last Wednesday, August 9th, David Heinemeier Hansson, the creator of Ruby on Rails, released a new version, called "Rails 1.1.5 - Mandatory security patch (and more)". The developers don't wanted to tell the specific reasons, the security bugs. But after many people had problems updating rails to the new version, for example on Windows with a zlib buffer overflow while installing it, they decided to release a new version 1.1.6 with all the bugfixes of the installation from version 1.1.5. 1 year on tomsw.org Swiss blogger, Tom S. Weber celebrates the first birthday of his blog. He wrote one year about webdesign, css, xhtml and usability. He improved his design Bijoux for his first birthday, so take a look at the new fresh site at www.tomsw.org Apples WWDC One of the biggest announcements was the new Mac Pro, Apples new Quad Xeon 64-bit workstation, if you want further information browse to www.apple.com/macpro. Steve Jobs discloses not every new feature of the new Operating System version 10.5, called Leopard, so that Microsoft could not steal anything for Vista, but he made some side blows to Windows, specially with the slogan "Hasta la Vista". Another nice feature of Leopard is that Boot Camp should be integrated, same as the web framework Ruby on Rails, including Mongrel and the SQLite bindings. Furthermore there will be new, improved, versions of front row, spotlight and Apple Mail. And of course some completely new applications called Spaces and Time Machine.
