Ruby on Rails was extracted by David Heinemeier Hansson from his work on Basecamp, a project management tool by 37signals (now a web application company). Hansson first released Ruby on Rails as open source in July 2004, but did not share commit rights to the project until February 2005. In August 2006 the framework reached a milestone when Apple announced that it would ship Ruby on Rails with Mac OS X v10.5 “Leopard”, which was released in October 2007.
Ruby on Rails version 2.3 was released on March 15, 2009. Major new developments in Ruby on Rails include templates, engines, Rack and nested model forms. Templates enable the developer to generate a skeleton application with custom gems and configurations. Engines let one reuse application pieces complete with routes, view paths and models. The Rack web server interface and Metal allow one to write optimized pieces of code that route around ActionController.
On December 23, 2008, Merb, another web application framework was launched, and Ruby on Rails announced a commitment to work together. The Ruby on Rails team announced they would work with the Merb project to bring “the best ideas of Merb” into Ruby on Rails 3, ending the “unnecessary duplication” across both communities. Merb was merged with Rails as part of the Rails 3.0 release.

Why Rack should matter to .NET developers
Rack is a layer of abstraction which sits between servers and frameworks. What it brings as a result is greater interoperability between HTTP server implementations and web frameworks. As the author of a HTTP server if you get your server to speak Rack you can now host applications written in several Ruby frameworks, Sinatra and Rails being two of the most well known.
