I am pleased to announce the release of EMDRb version 0.1.0, a rudimentary implementation of a distributed Ruby server based on EventMachine. It's available on Rubyforge at http://rubyforge.org/projects/emdrb but I must admit that it has thus far only been lightly tested and still a bit feature incomplete. The server implementation can already do all of the basic stuff one expects DRb to do, and presumably this implementation should be slightly more scalable than the standard distributed Ruby implementation in the standard library. This is alpha software, and is bound to have many bugs, but I think it might be best to release it to the public already and see how well it floats. I'll try to add a DRb client implementation for the next release within a few weeks.
