hello,

first of all I have to say...
Ruby is a nice and powerful, good designed script `language?.

But the interpreter itself has some oddities
(not thread-safe, global vars; there are some bugs in
basic code-parts; some extensions like tk
are `ugly? implemented (i.e. for win32 there is a thread
with priority highest,...).

But its nice and easy to write an extension in c/c++ ;-)

okay,...
-> on www.ruby-lang.org there is a project for the
    ruby-interpreter (owner mats).
-> on sourceforge.net there is a project with three developers
    (without mats).

are this diff. projects?
who is working on ruby 2.0 (I known, mats is working on version
1.6.8)?


greeting,
daniel
