We're still in active development. Most of our recent efforst are
around two areas: alternative debugger support (for the ruby-debug
library in Ruby) and solidifying/integrating GSoC work on type
inferrencing and also refactoring work done by Mirko Stocker and his
crew. We have nightly builds available on a separate update site (the
url is posted on our Sourceforge download page) - they should build
fine on Eclipse 3.2.

You might also want to subscribe to our developer's mailing list. It
gives a little better insight into what's going on.

As for being busy - I am very much so right now - so I haven't been
able to do much recently. I just got married and returned from my
honeymoon yesterday. So I should have a little more time to devote
closer to Christmas time - but we are pushing for a 0.9.0 release as
soon as we can get a solid looking candidate.
