I briefly looked into Ruby and Rails a bit back, but as I recall there only seemed to be active development and support for bindings for MySQL, PostgreSQL or ODBC connections.
For me, it is critical to have support for enterprise RDBMS systems, like Sybase ASE, Oracle 8/9/10, and MS SQL.
Are there any plans to support these types of databases, or am I missing something? I did see bindings for Oracle 7 once, but development seemed dead.
I certainly don't want to be forced to use an ODBC connection. I really prefer native support.
