What happened this week on the mruby front?
A bug found by Joseph McCullough which raised a SEGV in mrbc was fixed.
An infinite loop in mrbtest raied in Visual Studion 9 was fixed.
Module and Time got #inspect and a SEGV of #inspect on classes was fixed. Kernel#inspect does not call #to_s anymore.
The toplevel object main was now introduced so that the behavior in the toplevel is now closer to the vanilla Ruby.
The other day I found a very interesting fork of mruby by the IIJ. Features added in this fork are:
I’m wondering if there is a plan that parts of these things are merged back to the master. Due to the reason that some authors of IIJ already commited to the master I would certainly expect so. Very interesting due to the reason that with these changes mruby can now interact with the world.
