I have added a number of Ruby Documents to the NetBeans wiki.
You can now find a feature list, as well as instructions for both how to download and install the Ruby support as well as how to build it from scratch. And of course, the todo list!
Perhaps most important to those of you using the Ruby builds is the Recent Changes document, where I try to summarize important changes that are checked in.
As you can see, in the last week, the long startup indexing delays are gone, and code completion is smarter - it now tracks types of variables and fields in local scope - plus it better handles singleton classes.
If you haven't tried the Ruby support yet, the Installation document might be helpful.
