This is just to say that I'm going to phase out Ruby, so, all the plans that I might have had to revive RubyX11 and/or MetaRuby one day, are just gone. I've made that decision a few months ago but I hadn't thought about those two old projects. Basically, if anyone wants to pick up development of any of those two, they're welcome, as long as license and attribution is kept, as usual. I'm not giving up my third large Ruby project called GridFlow, I'm just going to replace all of the Ruby code in it, by code written in other languages. PS: my MetaRuby has nothing to do with the other, later project of the same name. _ _ __ ___ _____ ________ _____________ _____________________ ... | Mathieu Bouchard - tÃ©l:+1.514.383.3801 - http://artengine.ca/matju | Freelance Digital Arts Engineer, MontrÃ©al QC Canada

Mathieu, just curious... could you please tell us which were the reasons that made you take those decisions ? You put a lot of effort behind your projects, and for what I see you are a pretty advanced Ruby programmer, so why should you dispose all that gained knowledge all of a sudden ? Besides, it sounds like you're not only abandoning your applications but also the Ruby language and the Ruby ecosystem at large ? Maybe in favor of another different language that better suits your *current* needs, but does that mean you should totally abandon a useful tool you might need later ? Sorry for the many questions, just curious because it doesn't make sense to me at all. best, UG

If so, what languages are you looking at? (hoping they are open-source Common Lisp for compatibility with big chunks of other AlgoCompSynth software) One of the reasons I started learning Ruby was to hack on GridFlow. :) -- M.

Have any links to more information about these projects? Thanks, T.
