Ruby is Becoming an ISO International Standard Jump to Story

The "Ruby Standardization Working Group" has been established in Japan to define the one, official, internationally recognized Ruby specification. Based on Ruby 1.8.7, a first draft has already come together and they're looking for comments and review. Ultimately, the standard will be presented to the International Standardization Organization to become an International Standard, allowing - among other things - Ruby to be officially used by the Japanese government. As an added bonus, it will most likely become much easier for developers to create their own Ruby interpreters, as well, as they will no longer be chasing a moving target.
