[ruby-dev:28681] Block parameter and multiple values

  Takaaki Tateishi asked about the current status of new block parameter behavior
  in Ruby 2.0.  He also made a summary[1] of the new specification from Rite page
  on RubyGarden[2] and Matz' weblog[3]. 
  
    [1] Takaaki's summary: http://pub.cozmixng.org/~the-rwiki/?cmd=view;name=Ruby2.0BlockParameterAndMultipleValueAssignment
    [2] Rite: http://wiki.rubygarden.org/Ruby/page/show/Rite
    [3] Matz' weblog: http://www.rubyist.net/~matz/20060323.html#p01
  
  Matz added his idea to the summary page.  Some of the ideas are being added
  to the CVS HEAD.


[ruby-dev:28689] digest.rb

  Tanaka Akira posted digest.rb to make requiring Digest library simple.
  We can use any digest algorithm by this script:
  
      module Digest
        autoload "MD5", "digest/md5"
        autoload "RMD160", "digest/rmd160"
        autoload "SHA1", "digest/sha1"
        autoload "SHA256", "digest/sha2"
        autoload "SHA384", "digest/sha2"
        autoload "SHA512", "digest/sha2"
      end
  
  He added that the script might be a good place to hold common Digest methods, 
  such as hexdigest_file.


[ruby-dev:28708] 1.8.5 release schedule?

  Matz talked about the 1.8.5 release in RubyKaigi2006(the 1st Ruby Conference
  in Japan).  mput asked about the the release schedule and he replied that the
  release date will be the middle of August.
