Is there any place that summarizes the major differences between Ruby 1.8.2 and Ruby 1.8.4? I've got Ruby 1.8.2 installed in a bunch of places and am wondering if it's worth it to upgrade. Thanks, Joe

Short answer: I don't think there have been any major changes, but many, many small changes, most notably to security. right now 1.8.4 feels as stable as 1.8.3, so if security is a main concern for you and you are still running 1.8.2 then switching right now to "stable_snapshot" at http://www.ruby-lang.org/en/20020102.html will probably work for you. But it requires compiling. On the other hand, if you can wait till Christmas the official stable version will be available, probably with a few precompiled binaries. Changelog can be found here, http://www.ruby-lang.org/cgi-bin/cvsweb.cgi/ruby/C...
