Hi, folks.

I am proud to announce the release of Ruby 1.9.1. This is the first
stable release of Ruby 1.9 series.

Ruby 1.9 is a new series of Ruby. It is modern, faster, with clearer
syntax, multilingualized and much improved version of Ruby. Ruby 1.8
series has been used since 2003 and many great products were born on it.
Today Ruby 1.9 series starts its history as 1.8 series did.

Notice that Ruby 1.8 still remains. 1.8.8 will be released this year.

== Changes
You can read about major chanes since 1.8.7 at at
http://svn.ruby-lang.org/repos/ruby/tags/v1_9_1_0/NEWS .

We have fixed 7 bugs since 1.9.1 RC2.
 http://redmine.ruby-lang.org/projects/ruby-19/issu...

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

I think that as long as the language changes faster than COBOL we are
doing good.

A huge thanks to all of ruby-core for this, and for your hard work on
release management, Yugui.

> Notice that Ruby 1.8 still remains. 1.8.8 will be released this year.

Now that Ruby 1.9 is released, it seems there is no need for 1.8.7.

Is there a possibility that Ruby 1.8.8 will go back to being similar
to 1.8.6 and remove the 1.9 compatibility shims?
This would make maintaining old 1.8 code much easier.

Capital job, all of you. Nobu, Tanaka A., usa, yugui. And
especially koichi and matz. A big day for both of you. The new VM is
a lot of fun and you've worked so hard.

Also, many thanks to this list. I've often encountered Ruby 1.9
"bugs" and confusions, but it was all easily dismissed by finding
discussions about the internals which had already transpired here.

Yeah, so hearty backslaps and many rigorous unending handshakes
all around, this is great.

Congratulations! Now that the stable release is out, we will pull 1.9.1
stdlib into JRuby. We'll ship our 1.9.1-compatible (mostly? hopefully?)
release of JRuby 1.2 in late February.

> Notice that Ruby 1.8 still remains. 1.8.8 will be released this year.

Is 1.8.8 going to be based on 1.8.6 or 1.8.7? And is it planned to
change as many features as 1.8.7 did?

JRuby will remain at 1.8.6 compatibility (in 1.8 mode) until such time
that users let us know that they want support for 1.8.7+ features.

I suggest you wait for the Windows One Click installer for 1.9/2.0.

Unless something has changed the Windows builds you can download at
garbagecollect are somewhat not completely finished. They are missing
parts, and not even documenting which ones. You could write a "hello
world" program using the build and perhaps explore some of the
features fof the new interpreter but you cannot even install gems.

I am not completely sure if anybody uses that stuff and what do they
use it for. It just shows Ruby *can* be built for WIndwows I guess.

Thanks

The problem is not with Ruby itself but with the libraries it uses
(zlib for gems, readline for irb, openssl for encryption and https
networking, sqlite, ...)

Most of these use unique build systems and have binaries built for
windows with different compilers.

To link this all together with Ruby is a recipe for disaster.

For that reason Luis is working on a new One Click installer which
builds all the libraries and ruby from source using the MinGW
compiler.

Unfortunately not all of the libraries build well in the MinGW
environment out of the box (or on Windows at all) so the project
requires lots of tedious work. There are only development and testing
releases of this installer. As far as I know no final release that
includes at least all the basic parts is available.

Thanks

Yeah, I'm having some problems installing too... I can do the compiling,
I'll figure it out, but I can't figure out how I get the tools needed to
do
it, the win32 readme said I needed these:

    Note: building ruby requires following commands.
     * nmake
     * cl
     * lib
     * dumpbin

I have nmake, but how do I acquire the others? Google isn't helping me.

Thanks for this awesome release!

I was particularly interested in C-derrived languages due to my
experience with a scripting and config language based on C.

However, after some days of Ruby, I quickly got the gripe of the
dynamic, simple, yet powerful language and started to discover the
wonders this higher level language has to offer.
Pulled some friends into it, and have been able to learn from more
advanced programmers.

Since then i've been developing Ruby and Rails applications with a lot
of fun;
anything is basically easy to do.

Anyway, enough fan-talk!
Got a MinGW build ready and roling; Don't know if it's acustomed to
share, or self compile / wait for one click?

After downloaded the package from the ftp instead of checking out from

before exec ./configure,I had executed 'autoconf' and make someting goes

This is great - nice work by the ruby team!

In updating one of my gems for 1.9 compatability, I came across this
behaviour (which I don't believe I've seen noted in the other changes
lists), and just wanted to find out if it is expected:

$ irb
>> a = *[1]; p a
=> 1
>>
$ irb1.9
>> a = *[1]; p a
=> [1]
>>

Regards,

Charles

You can get binaries of PDCurses, GDBM, OpenSSL, readline and Zlib at
Porting Libraries to Win32.

http://jarp.does.notwork.org/win32/ is the link it gives for that, but
my
browsers won't connect. Is anyone else having that problem?

I also cannot reach this. Trying to "ping" (61.197.191.146) leads to
lost packages.

For the time being, you can download the required dll files at

hi list,
we are currently preparing Ruby 1.9.1-p0 and 1.8.7-p72 binary packages
for Mac OSX (Leopard, Tiger, Panther and below also supported). I'll
keep you all posted when the final packages are ready.
Project page: http://rubyosx.com

Kudos to the team!

I second that.

Hi,
I'm a kind of confused. It seem as this is the first production
release (p0) and therefore it would be the latest Ruby stable
distribution; but the download page at www.ruby-lang.org still shows
1.8.7-p72 as the stable and recommended one.
Do I need to wait for a final production release (somethin new for me)
or it is www.ruby-lang.org update issue.

Thanks,
Ubaldo
