This is the second edition of Agile Web Development with Rails. It covers Rails 1.2.
The Rails team recently released Rails 2. Some of the changes they made break Rails 1.2 applications, so we’re busy working on a brand new edition of this book. You can find details over here.
(If you’re looking for code or errata for the first edition of this book, you’ll find them here.)

Comments and Reviews
As a direct result of reading Agile Web Development with Rails, we built our initial product prototype using RoR and are now building our product using the technology instead of with .NET as we had originally envisioned. We have not formally announced the product, but in general it is an “enterprise” level application targeted at municipal governments. Thanks to both Ruby and Rails, we have made tremendous progress in development with the smallest dev team I have ever had!
I’d just like to add that the Agile Development with Rails book is possibly one of the finest programming books I have read (you may get sick of hearing that…) and has consolidated and strengthened my rather fragmented Ruby/Rails knowledge, enabling me to confidently take on 2 small projects. You have my eternal thanks.
