The FFI library has been officially taken over for maintenance by the
JRuby team.

The project remains on github at with issue
tracker and wiki intact.

The ruby-ffi google group was deleted without saving an archive. I
have restored the list
(!forum/ruby-ffi) and you will have
to re-join. I also rebuilt an archive of the messages from my own
email store. See and

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

Please feel safe in using FFI going foward, and help us with
maintenance going forward.

I just wanted to take the chance of saying a huge thank you for that

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 :-)

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.
