Ruby creator floats new concurrency model
Developers using the open source Ruby dynamic language are in for some big changes. The language is set to feature a new concurrency and parallelism model, called Guild, in the Ruby 3 upgrade tentatively slated to arrive before 2020.
Plans detailed at a technical conference in Kyoto, Japan this week cite intentions to equip Ruby for a programming landscape that increasingly has moved to multi-core processing. Currently, Ruby supports concurrency via threads, but making thread-safe programs is hard because of a need to manage object mutations. Guild overcomes this issue via a concurrency model enabling parallel execution.
