If you want to get involved, please drop by our mailing list or our IRC channel, #sciruby at
chat.freenode.net. Please note that SciRuby and NMatrix require Ruby 1.9.2 or higher. Individual components may work with Ruby 1.8, but we may not be able to help you if you have trouble.

SciRuby is an umbrella for various other projects. Most of the work is done in the underlying libraries:
Data Analysis and Manipulation
Miscellaneous Numerical Algorithms
Plotting, Visualization, and UI
Other projects that we should keep an eye on
We have two lists of projects that we should keep an eye on, because they can be ported to Ruby or they already implement some scientific functionality.
