Apple includes Rails with Leopard 07 Aug 2006

Rails turns 2 and Apple sends over a little birthday gift: Ruby on Rails will be included with Leopard (both server and client). It’s been quite an amazing ride for a little web application framework we extracted from Basecamp (Basecamp was the first Rails app and the reason Rails exists today).
Copied from the Rails Blog:
We’ve been working with Apple for quite a while to make this happen and its great to finally be able to share it with the world. The love for Ruby has definitely spread inside Apple and we’ve been thrilled to see the level of interest they’ve taken to get OS X to be a premiere development and deployment platform for Rails… It’s been no secret that Apple is held in very high regard by the Rails community. Every single Rails Core contributer is running on Apple and the vast majority of Rails developers are too. To see Apple acknowledge this and return the favor is very rewarding… Thanks so much to Ernest Prabhakar, Jordan Hubbard, and Dave Morin for making this happen.
Happy birthday Rails and thanks Apple.
