MacRuby 0.5

Hi,

After months of hard work and two successful beta releases, MacRuby
0.5 is now available. Get it here while it’s still hot!

MacRuby is a version of Ruby 1.9, ported to run directly on top of Mac
OS X core technologies such as the Objective-C common runtime and
garbage collector, the CoreFoundation framework and the LLVM compiler
infrastructure. While still a work in progress, it is the goal of
MacRuby to enable the creation of full-fledged Mac OS X applications
which do not sacrifice performance in order to enjoy the benefits of
using Ruby.

You can learn more about MacRuby, and download a binary installer,
from the website:

http://macruby.org

Or about this release more specifically, on our blog:

Enjoy,

Laurent

Anything you can say about MacRuby on the iPad? I’d love to be able to
develop full-fledged iPad apps using Ruby.

Great!
Does it mean that we could build a native Mac application which
use a non Apple (i.e. multi platform) library such Qt (cocoa version)
or next Tk release with MacRuby?

As QtRuby seams not so easy to use (install) on snow leopard,
this could be the way to use Ruby with Qt4 or any native
installed mac library without hard hacking fot making the
binding?

But I guess that the call of these libraries will not be
multi platform, …

I just downloaded the new version, and tried the script on the main
page(the
HotCocoa “Hello world”).

It works, but it output this before the 'World!":

2010-02-01 14:22:17.364 macruby[1922:903] *** -[NSLock unlock]: lock
(<NSLock: 0x200327960> ‘(null)’) unlocked when not locked
2010-02-01 14:22:17.366 macruby[1922:903] *** Break on _NSLockError() to
debug.

Do you have any idea why?

Linux support?

benchmarks running sinatra versus 1.9?

(sorry I can’t do these myself–no mac here–maybe somebody with a mac
can help me out).

That’s been possible for iPhone apps for a while with RubyCocoa and
various other tools. I don’t know whether MacRuby would be any
advantage here – it might.
