Over a month since I've posted a list, I've been busy with a project kickoff cycle - which I imagine would be a good post topic!

nesquena/sheet_mapper - map spreadsheet rows to ruby objects

RubyMoney/money-rails - handle money objects including exchange rates

mhfs/devise-async - send Devise's emails in background jobs

MemSQL - in-memory database 30x faster than conventional disk-spaced databases, commercial though but interesting
