I am setting up two threads in the hopes that we can see names
attached to opinions about the decision to break backwards
compatibility between Ruby 1.8.6 and Ruby 1.8.7+
This one is for those who wish that Ruby 1.8 would go back to being
1.8.6 compatible in Ruby 1.8.8. If you agree with this, share your
thoughts or at least a simple ‘+1’. If you disagree, please find the
other thread titled ‘If you are happy with the direction of Ruby
1.8.7, respond’. If you are in the middle, I don’t know what you
should do… write two posts?
My goal is to survey ruby-talk so that the core Ruby team has a chance
to see what people really want. I’m curious to see if this is as
one-sided as I think it is.
