Last week, Evan Phoenix announced the official release of Rubinius 1.0. Ultimately, Rubinius is a translation software that converts normal Ruby syntax into efficient machine code and executes it. Many core classes are written in Ruby and the 1.0 release supports Rails 2 and 3, Sinatra, the mysql gem, nokogiri, and more.
About two weeks ago, now, MacRuby 0.6 was released. The library is now stable for Cocoa development, supports MRI C extensions, passes 85% of the RubySpecs, and more. Also, XCode can now pre-compile your Ruby scripts into machine code, alleviating the need for you to ship your Ruby source.
Following the MacRuby 0.6 release, O'Reilly has published an online draft of Matt Aimonetti's book, "MacRuby: The Definitive Guide." It's being released under the Creative Commons license and right now you can read it all online to learn more and give paragraph-by-paragraph feedback on this book-in-progress.
Carlos Brando just released an interesting extension to TextMate that he's calling pseudo-IntelliSense. It allows TextMate to intelligently code complete your Ruby source and ERB, providing you with a list of available attributes and method calls specific to the object you're on which you're focused. There's a quick intro video on his site if you're looking for more information.
The RailsBridge May 2010 BugMash is now complete and the results are in. There were 68 participants this weekend, producing 237 contributions, and 32 commits to Rails core. This was the most successful BugMash to date and even physically brought together rubyists from around the world to local area meet ups. Thanks to the RailsBridge and Rails core team for making this event possible and be sure to participate the next time a BugMash comes around. They're a lot of fun!
Running along side RailsConf 2010 in Baltimore, MD, BohConf is the RailsConf 2010 official unconference. It is at the convention center and it is free for anyone to attend. Ther ewill be community code drives, a code retreat, a code competition, BarCamp talks, and even experiments with Ruby and Art.
On Sunday, June 6, 2010, Ignite RailsConf will be going on at the Sheraton Inner Harbor hotel in Baltimore, MD - within walking distance from the convention center. In Ignite, each speaker must deliver 20 slides in 5 minutes, with a computer auto-rotating the slides every 15 seconds. There will be big names making presentations, like Chris Wanstrath, Jeff Casimir, Jeremy McAnally, Bryan Liles, Ilya Grigorik, Ben Scofield, and more. Come out and get to know your community. It'll be a great time for all.
The Baltimore Rails community has put together a "Stay with a local," program which you may want to check out if your favorite hotel is sold out, too expensive, or you just want to head to Baltimore on the cheap. There are still a few rooms available for the duration of the conference and you'll get to be up close and personal with Baltimore-area rubyists. Who can pass on that?
