Rails celebrates more than 10,000 downloads

Across all versions and distributions forms, Rails have now rounded 10,000 downloads since the first version was released just five months ago. That’s an incredible achievement for a new framework to reach in such a short period of time, but if things go as they should, we should be celebrating 100,000 downloads in another five months (world domination doesn’t occur by modesty, now does it ;)).

Thanks to all the contributors who helped make Rails a desirable package. Thanks to all the companies that took a chance with a new kind of productivity. Thanks to all the many users who made it interesting to release new versions.

And of course thanks to the live community hanging out on #rubyonrails and rails@lists.rubyonrails.org. Keeping the energy at a staggering high day by day.
