This is a fairly major update. Ruby-visible changes include:
- A brand new MutableString implementation that supports byte, char,
and immutable char strings.
- Some wrappers for Regexp to support binding to the new MutableString
- Bug fixes for module_function, singleton_methods, subclassing of
This is the first of several changes that will be coming. I have a
shelveset that will go out for code review after this mail goes out. It
contains a large number of bug fixes for Rubyforge bugs. It passes all
local tests, but the troll is getting his batteries replaced this
weekend, so it won’t go through until Monday.
Next, we’re waiting on John M.'s DLR fix for the Tuple bug that is
causing us to blow up on large, complex files. This will unblock Jim
Deville’s work on running the latest Rubinius spec suite. He has it
running locally on his machine today.
Oh yeah, this release can run erb too …
