Version 0.2.0 Of Ruby-based Duby Language Released
Charles Nutter has released version 0.0.2 of the "Ruby with static types" experimental language, Duby. Duby is statically typed and compiled to fast Java Virtual Machine (JVM) bytecode. The platform-agnostic Duby currently supports a small set of language and JVM features in the JVM backend, and has no runtime dependency other than libraries accessed directly from Duby code. The compiler chain and plugins are written in Ruby.
Version 0.0.2 is available to download from github. Charles Nutter will be speaking about Duby and JRuby at JAX London later this month.
