Hi, folks.

I am proud to announce the release of Ruby 1.9.1. This is the first
stable release of Ruby 1.9 series.

Ruby 1.9 is a new series of Ruby. It is modern, faster, with clearer
syntax, multilingualized and much improved version of Ruby. Ruby 1.8
series has been used since 2003 and many great products were born on it.
Today Ruby 1.9 series starts its history as 1.8 series did.

Notice that Ruby 1.8 still remains. 1.8.8 will be released this year.

== Changes
You can read about major chanes since 1.8.7 at at
http://svn.ruby-lang.org/repos/ruby/tags/v1_9_1_0/NEWS .

We have fixed 7 bugs since 1.9.1 RC2.
http://redmine.ruby-lang.org/projects/ruby-19/issues?query_id=11

If you encounter any bugs or any problems, please let us know it via the
official issue tracking system (http://redmine.ruby-lang.org ).

Three cheers for the entire Ruby core team who has worked so hard to
bring us this release! Please know that we appreciate your efforts.

P.S. Does this mean we beat Perl 6? :smiley: (This is a joke folks.
Relax!)

Nah, we’ll need to wait for Ruby 2 for that :slight_smile:

We may still have time to get that out too. :wink:

Hi, folks.

A huge thanks to all of ruby-core for this, and for your hard work on
release management, Yugui.

Notice that Ruby 1.8 still remains. 1.8.8 will be released this year.

Now that Ruby 1.9 is released, it seems there is no need for 1.8.7.

Is there a possibility that Ruby 1.8.8 will go back to being similar
to 1.8.6 and remove the 1.9 compatibility shims?
This would make maintaining old 1.8 code much easier.

I think that as long as the language changes faster than COBOL we are
doing good.

Con grat u lations to Matz, Koichi, Yugui, and everybody who worked so
hard to
bring this off!

Pan Galactic Gargleblaster’s all around!

Congratulations to everyone involved. Fine work!


#12

Capital job, all of you. Nobu, Tanaka A., usa, yugui. And
especially koichi and matz. A big day for both of you. The new VM is
a lot of fun and you’ve worked so hard.

Also, many thanks to this list. I’ve often encountered Ruby 1.9
“bugs” and confusions, but it was all easily dismissed by finding
discussions about the internals which had already transpired here.

Yeah, so hearty backslaps and many rigorous unending handshakes
all around, this is great.

Thanks a lot.

Now we can wait for Pickaxe 3. :slight_smile:

#15

Congradulations guys!! I am a noob so this might be a silly question to
the
majority, but can someone give me the steps to install 1.9 in my vista
environment? Need some help. I already saved the zip folder. Should I be
looking for an executable, becauseI cannot find it

Thanks

Hi, folks.

I am proud to announce the release of Ruby 1.9.1. This is the first

Congratulations! Now that the stable release is out, we will pull 1.9.1
stdlib into JRuby. We’ll ship our 1.9.1-compatible (mostly? hopefully?)
release of JRuby 1.2 in late February.

Notice that Ruby 1.8 still remains. 1.8.8 will be released this year.

Is 1.8.8 going to be based on 1.8.6 or 1.8.7? And is it planned to
change as many features as 1.8.7 did?

JRuby will remain at 1.8.6 compatibility (in 1.8 mode) until such time
that users let us know that they want support for 1.8.7+ features.

Awesome all the way!

PS: whats the status of RubySpec project w.r.t Ruby 1.9.1 ? Are specs
that fail are being corrected and stuff?
