The Internet Communications Engine (Ice) is a modern, object-oriented 
distributed computing platform. We have just released a preview version 
of Ice for Ruby, which allows Ruby applications to interact seamlessly 
with Ice applications written in C++, Java, C#, Visual Basic, and Python.

Ice is free software, available with full source, and released under the 
terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL).
