    Maybe byebug (deivid-rodriguez/byebug: Debugging in Ruby 2) is most famous Ruby's debugger in recent years. byebug has enough features, however it doesn't utilize recent added TracePoint features for debuggers, so it is slow when some breakpoint is set.

    byebug supports threading. However Ruby 3.0 introduced Ractor (ruby/ at master · ruby/ruby). Ractor enables to make parallel program in Ruby, but the parallel programming is difficult and it needs support for debugging. However, it is hard to support ractors by existing debuggers.
