Funtoo Programming Languages Project
Ruby update: The efforts to modernize the Ruby Programming Language in Funtoo next have began. Development is underway and we are close to bringing the latest Ruby versions from the 3.0 and 3.1 releases with some updated RubyGems to Funtoo next. Check out this preview of Ruby 3.1.2 running on Funtoo next: Ruby 3.1.2 IRB on Funtoo next

The goal of this project is to enable developers to embrace Funtoo Linux as their preferred platform for programming.
We aim to do this by ensuring that each programming language is able to supply a reasonably stable version and a reasonably up to date version of each language, as appropriate. Where applicable we will make available the LTS versions of any given language. We will also ensure that all CVEs are addressed in a reasonable time frame, so that any developer using an to date Funtoo system should feel relatively assured of basic security measures taken by the distro.
If you have a passion for any language offered (or not yet) in the Funtoo tree, please get in touch with us via Discord, JIRA, or leave a comment below.
