Ruby's latest and greatest was announced yesterday on the ruby-talk mailing list: 1.8.0

whyTHEluckySTIFF has written up a great, work in progress, summary of the changes involved here.

As an aside, this is a great community. After the release announcement the list was flooded with "thank you and congrats" messages for Matz, the author, and his helpers. You could see the smiles on the faces of the authors through the email.
