Hi all,

This is a preview release of Ruby 1.9.1, which will be the first stable
version of Ruby 1.9 series. Try it early and have a experience of
modern, faster, with clearer syntax, multilingualized and much improved
Ruby world.

If you encounter a bug or a problem, please let us know it via the
official issue tracking system (http://redmine.ruby-lang.org ).

== New release schedule
The release schedule of Ruby 1.9.1 changed. The new schedule is,

 * 28 Oct, 2008: Ruby 1.9.1-preview1
    * Basically, the language features are frozen.
    * But most of standard libraries need more changes for
multilingualization.

 * 25 Nov, 2008: Ruby 1.9.1-preview2
    * shows improvements since the previous preview.

 * 25 Dec, 2008: Ruby 1.9.1 release candidate

     cool down phase ....

 * 25 Jan, 2009: Ruby 1.9.1

== Known error
"./configure && make && ./ruby -e 1" will fail and you need to "make
install" before running ruby at first.

This problem will be fixed by the preview 2.


Thanks

I assume this version passes all tests?  Are there any known outstanding
bugs?
Thanks!

Thanks a lot!

One question of mine is, is that the same as the newest svn trunk? Or
what the major difference between them?

I have code developed in 1.9.0-1 that ran a series of benchmarks fine
with it, but some of the benchmarks inexplicably produce SEG faults in
version 1.9.0-2 thru 1.9.0-5. My code and benchmarks can now run with
no problems in 1.9.1-preview1 but the benchmark times are reproducibly
slower (by 10-20%). So its great to see 1.9.1 can run my code cleanly,
but I hope future versions also become as fast, or faster than,
1.9.0-1.

gprof is your friend--I'd post to core with this sometime.

Re: what version is preview 1
I think it's an SVN trunk snashot.

No. There's a ruby_1_9_1 branch now. preview 1 comes from there.
