Hello all,

This is a summary for last week on the ruby-dev mailing list.


  [ruby-dev:20127] protected_instance_methods(true)

Hara suggested that klass::protected_instance_methods(true)
return an array of protected methods which are usable in
klass, not defined in klass. Matz replied he thought it's
a good behavior but difficult to implement.


  [ruby-dev:20129] Re: Array#map

Matz posted the reasons why the development of rite
is slow:

 * it's hard to maintain 1.6.
 * specification of 1.8 is not freezed.
 * it's easy to change 1.8.
 * there's concern about 1.9

And there are still some problems of 1.8:

 * Proc#yield  (Proc vs Block)
 * assinment to $stdin/$stdout/$stderr
