The State of Ruby VMs with Ilya Grigorik Jump to Story

Ilya Grigorik put together a great talk (and supporting blog posts) about the current state of Ruby Virtual Machines (VMs). He's gone around to all of the major developers and contributors and compiled a summary of where things are at for each platform and what's to be expected in the near future. You should take a look as there are a lot of major updates to come, with MacRuby, Maglev, IronRuby, and Rubinious all slated to hit 1.0 in the coming year.
