Rubinius 2.0-rc1

Rubinius, the Ruby virtual machine created by Evan Phoenix got inches closer to a major 2.0 release last week at RubyConf as well. Rubinius is implemented with as much Ruby code as possible — as opposed to native C code for MRI or Java for JRuby. Like JRuby and unlike MRI, Rubinius is thread-safe, which means that it is able to embed more than one interpreter in a single application. The released 2.0 will comes with an eagerly awaited Ruby 1.9 mode. Up until now, Rubinius was only compatible with Ruby 1.8.
