Changes to Ruby since pick-axe book came out


#1

Hi,

I’d be interested in knowing a list of changes made to Ruby since the
pick-axe book came out. You know, to staple to the inside back cover
so that I know these things when I need them…

Spank you smelly much in advance


Entry in RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 readme.txt file:
RollerCoaster Tycoon2 must be played on a video card capable of
640x480 screen resolution at a bit depth setting of 256 bits.

And the proof that playing too many strategy games causes loss of
humour:

1.8.3 broke something in YAML that caused RubyForge to not accept your
gems properly. 1.8.4 fixed this. Not something that really matters
if you’re up to date or out of date, but might be worthwhile to keep
in mind if you’re running on a machine that has 1.8.3 on it.

Other than that, you might want to google for the Changelogs

Which Pickaxe are you talking about?
