As Laurent noted we are now passing most language specs. The ones that  
we don't pass yet are either because we simply fail, or these examples  
(tests) are simply not updated for Ruby 1.9 yet. Which as you all know  
is what MacRuby is based on. This is an area where all of you Ruby  
devs can help out if you feel the need to get MacRuby up and running  
asap but don't want to work on the C(++) code.

If there are people who would like to work on getting examples up-to- 
date, please respond and I will try to give you an outline on a  

If you just want to run the specs use the spec:ci task.

One last question I have for everyone on the list. If there's someone  
with a 32 bit intel machine, could you please please run the spec:ci  
task and see if you get any failures?
It seems that, at least, because of a 32/64 bit issue some IO specs  
are now failing on my machines and those of Laurent. Thanks in advance!
