Towards Ruby 2.0: Progress of VM Internals
Currently, we are working on Ruby 2.0, which will be released next February. In particular, we are enjoying rewriting the virtual machine (VM) of Ruby 2.0 as a member of Matz's team in Heroku, Inc. - to make it more useful, high performance, low resource consuming and more sophisticated. In this presentation, we will talk about the progress of VM implementation including (1) new features related to VM internals such as profiling/debugging support and (2) progress with improving the performance of the Ruby 2.0 interpreter. We will also show plans for the release of Ruby 2.0.
