Ruby 2.0 is no longer a work in progress! Ruby 2.0 Release Candidate 1 was released today! Here's how to get it:
ruby -e "$(curl -fsSkL raw.github.com/mxcl/homebrew/go)"
Make sure brew is up to date:
Install rbenv, ruby-build, and openssl:
brew install rbenv ruby-build openssl
Or, if you already have rbenv:
brew upgrade rbenv
Use rbenv to install Ruby 2.0 RC1
rbenv install 2.0.0-rc1
You may need to specify the location for the ssl directory:
CONFIGURE_OPTS=--with-openssl-dir=`brew --prefix openssl` rbenv install 2.0.0-rc1
You may also need to specify a different
CONFIGURE_OPTS=--with-gcc=clang rbenv install 2.0.0-rc1
I highly suggest you install Ruby 2.0. There are some significant speed improvements and optimizations in the language.
