The FFI library has been officially taken over for maintenance by the JRuby team. The project remains on github at https://github.com/ffi/ffi with issue tracker and wiki intact. The ruby-ffi google group was deleted without saving an archive. I have restored the list (https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/ruby-ffi) and you will have to re-join. I also rebuilt an archive of the messages from my own email store. See https://github.com/ffi/ruby-ffi-archive and http://ffi.github.io/ruby-ffi-archive. Licensing-wise, we got permission from everyone who contributed after the ill-fated LGPL change to officially change the license back to BSD (3-clause). The FFI library is now BSD-licensed (libffi is MIT) and there are no plans to change it in the future. See https://github.com/ffi/ffi/issues/288 Please feel safe in using FFI going foward, and help us with maintenance going forward. - Charlie

I just wanted to take the chance of saying a huge thank you for that effort! The google group can only be viewed by members, is that intentional?

Not intentional...I'll fix that. Too many default knobs to twist on a new group :-) - Charlie On Wed, Oct 30, 2013 at 11:24 AM, Florian Gilcher

I also wanted to give a huge thanks. I've been getting more into native development the last year and built some Ruby FFI-based projects. It's great to know I can count on this project being there in the future. I hope FFI might even become part of Ruby core one day.
