caching database result

Hi guys,
Has ActiveRecord 3 a more complex cache mechanism than version released
with Ruby on Rails 2.0 ?

And has ActiveRecord the concept of "scope of object identity?"

obj1 = MyModel.find(1)
obj2 = MyModel.find(1)

results in two selects and two different object in memory, why?

Where I could find clear and detailed info about these topics?

Because it's not trying to do anything different (the select itself
will be cached). The subject comes up every now and again, but
activerecord does not yet have an identity map

The objects are the results of selects. Some other program may have changed
the value in between. So the values may be different. Rails does know what
other programs are accessing the database. Only the database server knows.
And it can cache the result. So two calls to the DB, possibly two different
results.
