Ruby is the interpreted scripting language for quick and easy object-oriented programming. It has many features to process text files and to do system management tasks (as in Perl). It is simple, straight-forward, and extensible.

This is a major update to the latest release in the 2.0 series. The packaging scheme of gems has been changed considerably, based on Fedora. Gems are now installed under /usr/share/gems (except for compiled C extensions) for better FHS compliance and to avoid having to rebuild noarch gems for each future major Ruby release. Each gem also comes with a separate -doc package with the generated documentation, which can be either viewed in a web browser (served with 'gem server') or from the command-line (with 'ri').
