Inf-ruby and 1.9

Is there a newer version of inf-ruby that works properly with Ruby 1.9?
The problem is that inf-ruby uses eval to send snippets to the buffer,
and you can’t dynamically create variables with eval in 1.9 any more
(Eval and dynamic local variable creation in Ruby 1.8 vs 1.9 - Ruby - Ruby-Forum). So the code works, but then
any variables aren’t available from the irb command line any more.
