Ruby 1.8.6-p368 released


#1

Hello all. It’s time for a new release.

This time we’ve fixed dozens of bugs, including workarounds for
CVE-2007-1558 and CVE-2008-1447. Many segfaults are also fixed. For
a complete list of what has been fixed, please read the ChangeLogs.

I’m afraid to inform you that we are not ready for a 1.8.7 counterpart
of it. That’s almost done, but a few test cases are still not green.
I’ll finish them up and re-inform you in a matter of days. Please be
patient.

Released tarballs are available at:

I’m glad I’ve finally put a 1.8.7 release on our FTP server. It’s a
counterpart of 1.8.6-p368, so many bugs are fixed since the latest
1.8.7.
Check the ChangeLog for more details.

Would it be possible for release notifications like this to be posted to
the news page on ruby-lang.org in future?

It’s quite easy to miss notifications on the Ruby-Talk list, so having
them on the news page (and in the associated RSS feed) would be useful.

Regards,

Phil

I agree with you, but I don’t have a write privilege on

Perhaps you could add [ANN] to the subject of this email, so it is
readily recognized as being an announcement?
