In the most recent round of updates, Larz Conwell has done a shit-ton of amazing work on templates: making the templating system play nicely with various formats: EJS, Mustache, and Jade. It can now happily figure out what sort of template from the file-extension, and you can even mix and match different formats together in layouts/partials.
He's also implemented Rails-like view-helpers like
linkTo, making your views simpler and more DRY.
Last but not least, he's vastly improved the generators to support full scaffold-generation, not just minimal resources.
What else is changing?
There's a lot of work happening on Geddy -- mostly breaking the project apart to make it more modular.
I built Postgres support first, but back-porting Geddy's existing support for MongoDB, and building a Riak adapter, are next in line. Model is also installable via NPM, but documentation hasn't moved over from the Geddy project, so it's still rather DIY.
When is this happening?
