Hello Nikolai,

The only version of Ruby that supports compilation for x64 is 1.9.x

Yes, there are plans, which I'm partially working as a side
playground, but no official or timeline planned. Lot of things needs
to be fixed so don't expect that happen before 1.9.2 get released on

I'm using mingw-w64 project for it, but still lot of things to be
ironed out in Ruby itself to be production quality.

I've CC'ed the Google Group, which I recommend you join instead of old
RF mailing list:
