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').
