In this release, we believe that MacRuby is now stable enough to consider using it to develop Cocoa applications.

In MacRuby 0.6, we improved the existing native bindings with additional, higher-level abstractions and convenience APIs in the "dispatch" library. We believe these features will help reduce the learning curve for GCD.
