An administrative Snafu combined with travel to hurricane-tormented North Carolina combined to create the late publication of this podcast. Undeterred, we bring you the news of Steve's resignation, a few JRuby stories, a Guard howto, a new content management system, a few useful tools for dealing with ActiveRecord performance and reporting, and a great resource for Sass beginners and experts alike.

JavaFX + Ruby? Jump to Story

Oracle published an article showing a demonstration of using JavaFX from within JRuby. Seriously. But since the Ruby core libraries don't really have an opinion about a standard desktop gui, JRuby can give us several good options - including Swing, SWT, and JavaFX. Ruby has always been an opportunistic language, 'gluing' stuff together for a better solution - if you have the need, this might be an interesting option.
