The "Ruby Standardization Working Group" has been established in Japan to define the one, official, internationally recognized Ruby specification. Based on Ruby 1.8.7, a first draft has already come together and they're looking for comments and review. Ultimately, the standard will be presented to the International Standardization Organization to become an International Standard, allowing - among other things - Ruby to be officially used by the Japanese government. As an added bonus, it will most likely become much easier for developers to create their own Ruby interpreters, as well, as they will no longer be chasing a moving target.
A while back, the team at InfoEther put together an incredibly thorough white paper on Ruby and Rails. At about 40 pages, it includes a history of Ruby and Rails, the community, licensing information, frameworks, support, and much more. It's an indispensable resource if your clients, team, or organization may be questioning using Ruby in their next application and is something that should probably be read by every developer who calls themselves a Ruby or Rails programmer.

The source is available for the application on GitHub and a running demo can be found at Flickr4Twitter.com.
