Hello,

This is a summary of ruby-dev ML in these days.

---- ruby-dev #18541-18612 ----

[ruby-dev:18582] embedded ruby interpreter friendly patch

  Tietew posted a patch which would realize ruby_stop() without calling
  exit(). This functionality is sometimes needed to embed Ruby interpreter
  into an application. It will be added with another name in the future.

[ruby-dev:18606] private_method_defined?

  Shin-ichiro HARA requested Module#private_method_defined? and so on.
  Matz added following methods.

    - public_method_defined?
    - private_method_defined?
    - protected_method_defined?

    - Module#public_instance_methods
    - Module#private_instance_methods
    - Module#protected_instance_methods

    - Object#public_methods
    - Object#private_methods
    - Object#protected_methods

  Each of Object#methods and Module#instance_methods returns both of
  public methods and protected methods.
