Whither Ruby DBI?

I see that Ruby DBI is still on version 0.10. Is development active?

Why does ActiveRecord, for instance, not use DBI? Not only would it
standardize adapters, it would solve a lot of performance issues - such
as http://www.yqcomputer.com/

Yes, development is active. I forget exactly who by, but if you look in
the archives, you can probably find out.

Consider ActiveRecord a peer and an alternative to DBI. Perhaps, though,
a more mature DBI could be used in the way you suggest.
