Very nice book so far! I guess a future chapter will shed more light on the deployment process e.g. to the Mac App Store. I'm particularly interested in two questions, take it as a suggestion or maybe you've thought about those already and could add some brief comment as to what to expect:

How to implement a basic licensing logic (most likely easy to circumvent for users with some knowledge in scripting Ruby)?

How to detect whether MacRuby is already installed. (Okay, you can bundle it with every app, but wouldn't it be nice to skip this if a suitable version of MacRuby is already installed and thus used by several apps? Maybe Apple will take care of this if MacRuby gets rolled out as part of OS X some day.)

Looking forward to the next chapters!

Re: Deployment and MacRuby Inclusion
I'd be also interested in how to bundle Ruby gems.
