Another announcement on behalf of our Japanese friends at Rubyist Magazine.

(English translations for these articles will appear... uh... sometime in the
near future.  Translations for the previous three volumes are scheduled to
appear in the upcoming Ruby zine, which I was told would launch this month.)
