Discussion on: Thoughts on Ruby 3?

First I was excited about optional typing in Ruby, but now that I see that they've split the type signature into separate .rbs files I'm rather sceptic. I've also taken a look at sorbet and their ruby syntax, but don't like it either. I guess the whole topic is just much more complex than I thought. Anyway, I'm currently installing steep and the VS Code extension to see if it helps me.

I guess Ractor is less controversial and most ruby developers appreciate this kind of parallelism with multiple GVL's/RVM's.
