Can anyone recommend some good books on Ruby and how to program in her?  ;-)

Maybe its because people keep ripping the MSF code instead of contributing
code back to the framework ...

No, i believe the real reason is purely practical. Ruby has the flexibile
and extensible OO language features that Perl cant offer. And with the low
number of contributing users, the move from Perl to Ruby won't affect the
development progress much.

If you were in Vegas this week, you would have seen skape and spoonm demo
some of the new functionality in msf3. I suggest you check out the slides on
the msf website when they're posted.

someone tell me why this switch of language will be taken?

With kind regards,
