Support for Rails 2.3.x can be found by installing Devise 1.0.x from the v1.0 branch.
+== Starting with Rails?

+* Michael Hartl's online book: http://railstutorial.org/chapters/modeling-and-viewing-users-two#top
+* Ryan Bates' Railscast: http://railscasts.com/episodes/250-authentication-from-scratch
