When Ruby on Rails and Merb merged at the end of 2008 -- a boon for Ruby on Rails development, the plan was to unify development of Ruby on Rails (RoR) 3 and have it out by the end of 2009. Fast forward 18 months and RoR 3 is still in development, but a release candidate is set for this week.

With the RoR 3 release, the open source development framework is being overhauled. Most notably, the Merb framework -- and its dependency management capabilities -- are being merged into Rails. So, Rails developers can look forward more modularity and scalability, and greater power compared to the current RoR 2 framework.

For his DevX article, InternetNews.com's Sean Michael Kerner spoke with Yehuda Katz, a member of the Ruby on Rails core team and Rails framework architect at Engine Yard, to get the inside story about what's in store for the new release and what's taking so long. Katz indicates that the release candidate (RC) for Rails 3 is coming soon.
