If I’m remembering things correctly, I believe that means that will be
the first Ruby that Apple have shipped which works with Rails out of the
box. Hopefully.

I could be out of date, though…

Until we have to install it all again from source because it’s broken
as shipped?

Not to be negative, but the lessons of history and all that.

Having read some on DHH’s blog, and other places, I think the real news
here
is that it will ship with a current Ruby and more importantly Ruby Gems.
Having the machine loaded with Ruby, Gems, and Rails installed via Gem,
really adds to the potential of the platform! Congrats to all involved,
this is a big step forward for all!

Cheers,

Well, the core guys are working with Apple to make sure it doesn’t,
so, I believe this time around they will have learned from their
mistakes.

I’m particularly glad they are shipping it with Rails as a Gem instead
of some other magic. Hoorah for ‘gem update’!

I know I’m just adding two cents here, but this really is incredibly
good news, people. This is a big step toward mainstream acceptance for
Ruby, not just for Rails. Of course it’s easy enough to install both
yourself on any OSX box, but the fact that Ruby is being blessed by the
decision-makers at Apple is a serious credibility builder. For just one
example, now you can say “Apple” when someone asks “who else besides you
believes in this Ruby stuff?”

I don’t remember it that way. I think Ruby first showed up in Jaguar.

Yes, looks like you remember that better than I did. Jaguar does
seem correct.

Still that has Apple shipping Ruby in the last three major revisions
of the OS. We’re talking about years of support.

When I decided I’d outgrown AppleScript, I said to myself “Well, let’s
just stick with languages already installed on my Mac. Let’s see. PHP,
Python, Perl, and . . . Ruby?”

After only a modest amount of research, I picked Ruby. If it hadn’t
been pre-installed, I wouldn’t have considered it. (Fat lot of good
THAT turned out to be, sigh.)

[Yes, there’s the gcc compiler. I’d already eliminated any language
with a “C” in its name.]
