Google App Engine 0.0.19 gems released

We just released the 0.0.19 google-appengine gem. App Engine's infrastructure can now anticipate the need for more resources and warm up new application instances (in the background) before routing user traffic to them. You can also reserve three instances by purchasing "Always On" for $9 per month. See the 1.4.0 blog post for more information.
  • App Engine Tools updated to version 0.0.17
  • App Engine SDK updated to version 1.4.0
  • App Engine Rack updated to version 0.0.12
  • App Engine APIs updated to version 0.0.22
JRuby 1.5.6 - The JRuby team just shipped a new release that contains a the "object stream" fix we need for Mirah, thanks guys!
Nokogiri Java - We have a new 1.5.0.beta.3 gem for pure-Java Nokogiri. Thanks to @yokolet for her work continuing feature development on the pure-java version. We're in the home stretch
Mirah and Dubious - We now have gems for Mirah and Dubious, thanks @baroquebobcat, you're a hero. Even with background warming of Rails instances, Mirah and Dubious provide an simple way to cut server response time down to a fraction of what it takes to pass through the entire Rails stack.
