    I just released the first verison of RubyShell, a UNIX shell written in Ruby (release announcement at my blog, which is my `home page' here). Releasing something is fun. 1+ month of work in my spare time out there for the world to see. Kind of nerve-wracking, too. Now I'm waiting for the reaction -- positive or negative.

    Anyway, any fun/cool release stories you guys have to share?

    (Before you ask, no, RubyShell currently doesn't really work on Windows. I might be able to improve that in the future, I don't know. It certainly isn't a priority, however.)

    Well, keep in mind, I release *something* every couple of months. The problem is that the `something' changes every time. I work on one project often for less time than it takes for most people to go through a tank of gas :-P On the one hand, that means most of my projects die in a very early stage; on the other, it means I learn a lot, because every one is typically aimed at learning something else.

    I still await part 3 of your blog tutorial, Mr Shadowfiend!

    Good work on the shell, I think I'll give it a try myself! It should work in OS X, right?

    Yep, no reason why it wouldn't work in OS X. It's Windows that makes it explode in a dazzling shower of sparks. And yeah, I was just thinking about the tutorial yesterday as I was writing up the blog post for RubyShell 0.2... I need to sit down and commit myself to writing the next part. It's because I'm currently excited about RubyShell, so all of my attention is going there.
