Hi all!

Just wanted to announce a big update we made to Rails Assets

For those who haven't used it before, Rails Assets takes Bower components and packages them up as Ruby gems, to ease some of the pain of getting bower components working on Rails projects. Previously, there was a lot of copy/pasting, no great way to update, etc. And it means much more exposure for bower components!

We revamped the user experience so that it should be MUCH easier to find the components you're looking for and get them working in a Rails app. Here's some release notes:
* Completely new search interface
* Each component now has its own page
* Very clear instructions on how to install a component
* Dramatically improved interface for choosing a version other than the latest
* Ability to link to component pages directly
* Ability to link to search results directly

As always, please hit us up with feedback!

PS: We're accepting donations at now as well. If you find this useful, even a few dollars helps us keep it running!
