Rubinius Momentum

Evan Phoenix doesn’t update his blog very often, but when he does it’s worth reading. His most recent post is all about momentum, and it covers a cascade of big news in the Rubinius world.

It all started with the team finishing the new compiler. This led to an implementation of Kernel#eval, which led to a working irb, and so on …

Another indication of Brian Mitchell bringing up the idea of Io on Rubinius (which reminds me of my post Will rubinius Be An Acceptable Lisp from a year ago). While Brian hasn’t released working code yet, it’s certainly interesting that someone would even consider tryig to build an Io on top of a VM designed for Ruby.
