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.
