After months of hard work and two successful beta releases, MacRuby
0.5 is now available. Get it here while it's still hot!

MacRuby is a version of Ruby 1.9, ported to run directly on top of Mac
OS X core technologies such as the Objective-C common runtime and
garbage collector, the CoreFoundation framework and the LLVM compiler
infrastructure. While still a work in progress, it is the goal of
MacRuby to enable the creation of full-fledged Mac OS X applications
which do not sacrifice performance in order to enjoy the benefits of
using Ruby.

You can learn more about MacRuby, and download a binary installer,
