Ruby/Tk on 1.8.2-preview3 has many changes from 1.8.1 (keeps backward 
compatibility), is fixed some cases of SEGV from 1.8.2-preview2, 
and supports the following Tcl/Tk extensions. 

  * Tcllib      http://sf.net/projects/tcllib
  * IWidgets    http://sf.net/projects/incrTcl
  * BWidgets    http://sf.net/projects/tcllib
  * TkTable     http://sf.net/projects/tktable
  * vu          http://tktable.sourceforge.net
  * TkHTML      http://www.hwaci.com/sw/tkhtml/index.html
  * ICONS       http://www.satisoft.com/tcltk/icons/ 
  * IncrTcl     http://sf.net/projects/incrTcl
  * TclX        http://sf.net/projects/tclx
  * TkImg       http://sf.net/projects/tkimg
  * TkTreeCtrl  http://tktreectrl.sourceforge.net/
  * Tile        http://tktable.sourceforge.net/tile/ 
  * winico      http://tktable.sourceforge.net
  * TkTrans     http://www2.cmp.uea.ac.uk/~fuzz/tktrans/default.html
  * TkDND       http://sourceforge.net/projects/tkdnd 

Some of them have sample scripts, and another some of them are 
alpha quality. ;-)
If you use ActiveTcl (http://www.activestate.com/Products/ActiveTcl/) 
package and compile Ruby's tcltklib with it, you will be able to try 
many of them. 
I want better quality for them on 1.8.2 release. 
Bug reports are welcome.
