Some doc updates incoming on the C++ side. I will probably just marshall them through myself.

Also - need to add a link to the new Ruby client :-)

Sure sure ... if you want to just "do that stuff", @hughlang, then go for it! I've got plenty of other things to chase this morning. Thank you!

I did have ethereum-ruby incorrectly in that table a week or two back, and then reached out to tymat to ask if it was Homestead compatible, only to discover that ethereum-ruby was just a JSON-RPC wrapper, not a full EVM. ruby-ethereum is the full EVM.

We should really have a section for the JSON-RPC wrappers somewhere - web3.js, Nethereum and ethereum-ruby. I wonder if there are more? And I don't know what we should really call those either. They aren't clients but they are SOMETHING which is cohesive and worthy of a section.

What’s the difference between DigixGlobal’s ethereum-ruby and https://github.com/tymat/ethereum-ruby ?
Was tymat’s code moved to DigixGlobal’s repo?

Tymat's repo only 2 commits, and that was 2 years ago.
