If you haven't already heard, the GemStone/S team is becoming an independent company after 3 years as part of VMware. The entire engineering team is moving to GemTalk Systems[1].

GemTalk Systems is completely focused on Smalltalk, GemStone/S and allied initiatives, including Maglev[2]. Here's the blurb from our Transition FAQ page[5]:

Our core technology will be Smalltalk-based products, but they can provide
infrastructure in other environments. We will continue to support GemBuilder
for Java, and we will be revisiting MagLev for Ruby and GLASS for Seaside.
New initiatives into other development areas are possible.

I've published a blog post[3] with my take on the acquisition (short answer is "excited!"), if you have any additional questions, feel free to contact me.

I think that maglev with a rest api in front of it could be huge, which would include server side stored procedures in ruby,  you should also allow for an eventually  consistent optional persistent model in order compete with the mongo and couchbase server etc nosqls, also some web tools for admin, this could be huge with the rails community,  secondarily revisitjng something like Borges I.e  rubys version of seaside could be interesting, is Gemconnect still around? Being able to dump to data warehousing , analytics like postgres based pentaho would be big

Finally dont just milk gemstone s customers, lets push , innovate and the ruby angle is your best bet

Good luck

Dale, it good to hear that the team is remaining as one and plans to take Gemstone/S to the next level.  BTW, I have always been wishing for a GUI for Gemstone/S. :-)  Good luck with everything moving forward and I look forward to playing with and using the things that the company builds.
