New RubyCocoa Release & BridgeSupport

More interesting for MacResearch members may be the new BridgeSupport project, which appears designed to provide better support for scripting bridges to Objective-C, like RubyCocoa and PyObjC, although the project is independent of any scripting language.

BridgeSupport files are XML files that describe the API symbols of frameworks or libraries that cannot be introspected at runtime. These are generally ANSI C symbols that is, non-object-oriented items such as constants, enumerations, structures, and functions but can also include some additional information about Objective-C classes, methods, and informal protocols.
