Ephemeral brings ORM-like functionality to non-persisted objects. The anticipated use case is for an application that consumes an API and materializes one or more collections of objects from a JSON response or XML response. This release brings one-to-many relationships and chainable scopes for your in-memory objects.
Synack is a client/server wrapper for Terminal Notifier that allows messages to be sent from Ruby programs to Mac OS X Mountain Lion's Notification Center. Check the README at https://github.com/Bantik/synack for prerequisites, then install using gem install synack. Great for piping Rspec results to OS X, and it even works across the network. Enjoy!
