Iron Ruby Gets Stable, Silverlight Makes Circles With Ruby and I Get a New Job!

Good day readers I know I’ve been missing in action for the past month but I’ve had quite a bit going on. I started a new job and needed the time to get myself up to speed with everything going on at the company. But enough about me let’s get into what’s been happening in the ruby and ruby on rails world since I’ve been gone.

First off, IronRuby gets stable after 3 years of development by Microsoft with the release of version 1.0. IronRuby is Microsoft’s attempt at bringing Ruby to.NET making it run natively to the DLR.

You can get IronRuby 1.0 in two formats – .NET 4.0 Windows installer or ZIP file, and a .NET 2.0 SP1 Windows installer or ZIP file. You can find out everything you need to know about the sexy new version at IronRuby.net. This in my opinion just goes to show that the Ruby programming language is here to stay with other implementations such as MacRuby available as well.

Next up is more IronRuby News, a video below showing Silverlight in conjunction with IronRuby to get Ruby in the web browser. IronRuby shows its stuff with some interactive circles for you viewing pleasure and amusement.

That’s it for today but I will be posting regularly again with all the latest developments in the world of Ruby and Ruby on Rails. Please Stay Tuned and Thanks for Your Patience!
