As Kasper Weibel already pointed out, we’re proud to announce the release of the acts_as_ferret Rails plugin, version 0.2.1.
I’ve already mentioned the major new feature, the ability to run More Like This queries, in an earlier post. With those you can query your index for objects having similar contents like a given object.
Besides that, the biggest change is the switch from Ferret 0.3.2 to the 0.9 series as the suggested Ferret version to use. Until now, 0.9.x support was somewhat rough, this should be better now. Version 0.2.1 is meant to be fully compatible with Ferret 0.9 (this is valid for both the Ruby-only and the super fast C-version).
The last release of acts_as_ferret supporting Ferret 0.3.2 has been tagged as 0.2.0 in the SVN repository. Feature-wise both versions, 0.2.0 and 0.2.1, are equal.

In an effort to bring on some more documentation for acts_as_ferret, I detailed the steps I took to integrate Ferret into my Typo installation.
