After 15 beta releases, Sprockets has finally released the big 2.0.

Why’s this a big deal? Well, Sprockets is the gem that’s powering the new asset pipeline in Rails 3.1. It can automatically process, minify, combine, and serve all of your assets in a variety of formats.

If you’re using Rails, I’d recommend upgrading your application to Rails 3.1. Even though it’s still just an RC release, the final is about to come very soon. Then, sprockets is all set up for you. If you’re not on Rails, then you should check out this awesome blog post by Envy Labs. It’ll get you going. Of course, you don’t need to use the Git URL now that version 2 is out.

Check out the source on GitHub and the readme for more details.
