Justin Sheehy has just posted his video slideshow introduction to webmachine. The video contains the slides and most of the talk that Justin gave at the Bay Area Erlang Factory last month. If you've been thinking about checking out Webmachine, this half hour is well worth your time.
Webmachine has also gained several new features recently, including delayed body receive and a more independent request dispatcher. Partial receive and send is even available in tip.
Unfortunately, the trace utility required changes that broke compatiblity with old trace files. Support for those old traces could probably be hacked in without too much trouble if you need it (the cause was mainly just a change to a record structure). I assumed that trace files are somewhat ephemeral, though - really only needed for debugging, and then thrown away.
Finally, if you're looking for example resources and dispatch tables, I recommend checking out my wmexamples repo on github. It has a smattering of working resources that can hopefully give you a feel for how we normally write them.
