I figured out I should drop a note about the recent changes in trunk.

MacRuby will now build 64-bit by default on Intel machines, 2-way fat  
(for both i386 and x86_64). It means that if you are fortunate to run  
an Intel 64-bit machine, macruby will run in 64-bit by default. On  
PPC, MacRuby will only build for 32-bit, regardless if you run ppc or  

In the case of MacRuby Xcode apps, you will have to modify the  
application's Xcode project to build for 64-bit.

The templates and the samples have been modified to always build 64- 
bit by default.

In the case of a HotCocoa app, in theory a new "macrake" should  
rebuild the .app bundle for 64-bit.

If you update from an old trunk revision, you might want to clean all  
objects first, or even better, start with a fresh clean repository copy.

Let me know if have troubles building/using trunk.

On a separate note, there is now a CoreData application template that  
has graciously been contributed by Johannes Fahrenkrug!
