One-Click Ruby Installer 184-18 Release Candidate 3 is avail

Originally, this was planned to be the final 1.8.4 release of the
One-Click
Ruby Installer for Windows. However, there were enough package upgrades
in
this release to warrant one more release candidate to make sure there
aren’t
any show stoppers. If none are found, then you can expect the final
release
this coming weekend. You can download this release (and its MD5
checksum)
here:

http://rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=167

The two biggest changes in this release are:

  1. The core Ruby interpreter was built from the source of CVS HEAD as of
    2006-04-14. This contains many bug fixes since 1.8.4’s original release
    on
    2005-12-25. In particular, many of the YAML bugs were fixed.

  2. RubyGems has been updated to the recently released 0.9.0.

Other changes in this release include:

  • Included all Win32-Util packages that are available as RubyGems.
  • All sample programs now reside under the “samples” directory.
  • Updated FreeRIDE to 0.9.6
  • Upgrade FXRuby to 1.6.0
  • Added option for European keyboard to properly map certain input
    characters in IRB.
  • Uninstaller now informs you that the entire installation dir will be
    deleted and gives you the option to abort.
  • Log4r is now installed via RubyGems

Not sure that this is a good idea, as FXRuby 1.6 is a fairly new
release. Has FreeRIDE been updated to use FXRuby 1.6 yet?

Why 2006-04-14? Was it the last snapshot tagged as 1.8.4 (as opposed to
1.8.5)?

It was an official build/release of ruby-mswin32 (although they pulled
it
from their downloads once the put up 1.8.5 preview1).

Through the magic of RubyGems, the installer includes both 1.2.6 and
1.6.0.
FreeRIDE still uses 1.2.6.

I’m not really happy with using tagged CVS HEADS in important official releases
like the one click installer.

Right. But if there are significant YAML bugs that are fixed (and
there are), it’s worthwhile. I would like to see some of these things
labeled as, say, 1.8.4.1 or something like that, but the release
process is pretty significant, so I can understand why it isn’t done.

All packages in the stdlib should be gemified and released separately as
needed. That would solve this problem nicely, don’t you think?

Can’t you give a glance at [ruby-core:07922]?

Well it would also help if matz give up his stupid idea that 2.0 is
rite and no version numbers should be two-digit ones. Then we could do
what everybody else is doing. At the moment the major.minor.patch
version is simply completely missused.

Having a 1.9 in development for more then 5 years now, which is
blocking a correct version numbering is … well i stop i think i
made my point clear enough.

I mentioned this already a few times on the core list.
But matz does not even answer to these problem.
