Since yesterday, the active_support branch can generate and run a
minimal full-stack application without merb-auth (that needs to be
migrated to AS separately). I'd love to get some feedback about how
things work out for small applications, so if you have some time, try
The gems from the branch build as version 1.2.0.pre1; You will need a
modified version of Templater available from https://github.com/ngollan/templater
(generates gems versioned as 1.1.0).
Information about the state of 1.2.0 can be found at
Report breaking changes and plain old bugs at the Lighthouse tracker.
