... Rails vs Merb, Securing WebApps, Fast Deployments, Compass 2.1, Localizing WebSynergy, IM and Cisco and CDN and Amazon

A compilation of today's news of interest:
At MindBucket Paul provides a comparison of the (single-client) performance of Rails vs Merb. Rails is the incumbent in Ruby frameworks; Merb is a very interesting newcomer. Merb is thread-safe, and so will be Rails 2.0, but the comparison does not consider concurrency so that should be a key issue. The comparison includes numbers on GlassFish Server (and stay tuned for more fine-tuning for that case).
Shay reports that Compass 2.1 M3 is now available with improved GlassFish support.
From Mahipalsinh an explanation of how to Localize WebSynergy, so you can do it for your favorite language.
And, on the section of important Industry News, Cisco buys Jabber, which should provide integrated IM in their offerings, and Amazon launches CDN service, a la Akamai, LimeLight and others. One of the nice things of working in this industry, it is never boring!
