What's holding Castle back?
I've been asked this lots of times: why Castle hasn't reached 1.0? To be honest, nothing much, but as I'm a perfeccionist I decided to make some things better (and my my top priorities) before going 1.0. DynamicProxy rewrite DynamicProxy plays an important role on castle and several other projects outside castle umbrella. However it has some limitations to overcome. I'm working on it on my spare time and hopefully will have something to be tested this month. After completing it I'll have to work ......

MonoRail on ssdotnet
If you're around Olympia, WA, you should stop by and attend to Chris Bilson's presentation on MonoRail.

Interesting comment on MonoRail usage of NVelocity
Comment posted on Introducting Castle Part II: I have to agree with you on this, Hamilton - even when I first started looking at Rails (a few months ago) and went, "oh boy, Castle's like Rails but on .NET... but what's this NVelocity thing?"... I was never worried about it being hard to use. If anything, it seems too simple, too procedural after working with server controls for years and years.
