As Ruby 3.3 is around the corner, I suggest a list of recommended articles or videos to watch to get up to date with Ruby's evaluation as a language.
This is a partial list of some of the things happening in Ruby. Still, I think it is an excellent start to glimpse how Ruby's programming language is evolving and how much effort the community puts into keeping Ruby a joy to use.
First, I recommend you watch this video where Matz is talking about how he chooses to include in Ruby and about Ruby future:

I would recommend you browse https://rubyreferences.github.io/rubychanges/
It contains a more detailed (with examples) list of changes per each Ruby version.
