Hi,

Ruby 1.9.2 has been released. This is the newest release of Ruby 1.9
series.

== About Ruby 1.9.2
Ruby 1.9.2 is mostly compatible with 1.9.1, except the
following changes:

  • Many new methods
  • New socket API (IPv6 support)
  • New encodings
  • Random class that supports various random number generators
  • Time is reimplemented. There is no longer the year 2038 problem.
  • some regexp enhancements
  • $: no longer includes the current directory.
  • dl is reimplemented on top of libffi.
  • new psych library that wraps libyaml. You can use the library instead
    of syck.

See [*1][*2] for more detail.
*1: http://svn.ruby-lang.org/repos/ruby/tags/v1_9_2_0/NEWS
*2: http://svn.ruby-lang.org/repos/ruby/tags/v1_9_2_0/ChangeLog

Ruby 1.9.2 passes over 99% of RubySpec [*3].
*3: http://www.rubyspec.org

== Supported Platform
Ruby 1.9 has four support levels.

:Supported
We verified that Ruby 1.9.2 works fine on it. And we can keep the
1.9.2 maintained on it.

  • Debian GNU/Linux 5.0 on IA32.

:Best Effort
We verified that Ruby 1.9.2 works mostly fine on them. And I believe
we can keep the 1.9.2 maintained on it.

  • mswin32, x64-mswin64, mingw32
  • MacOS X 10.5 (Intel) and 10.6
  • FreeBSD 6 and later (amd64, IA32)
  • Solaris 10
  • Symbian OS

:Perhaps
I think Ruby 1.9.2 works fine on them with small modification,
however, it is not verified. Patch is welcome.

  • Other Linux distributions
  • Other versions of MacOS X.
  • cygwin
  • AIX 5
  • Other POSIX-compatible systems
  • BeOS (Haiku)

:Not supported
I do not think Ruby 1.9.2 works on them. Porting is welcome.

  • Any other systems

== FAQ
:The standard library is installed in /usr/local/lib/ruby/1.9.1
This version number is “library compatibility version”. Ruby 1.9.2 is
mostly compatible with the 1.9.2, so its library is installed in the
directory.

:It causes a LoadError
$: no longer includes the current directory. So some scripts need
modification to work correctly. Anyway, your script should not depend on
the current directory as well as possible.

Supported also on x86_64-linux, right?

Or is that platform in the “Best Effort” category?

Thanks to all the 1.9 developers for getting to this point.

Coincidentally, last night I finished 1.9 compatibility adaptations for
a C/ruby simulation engine that depended in ugly ways on 1.8 internal
details. I was pleased to see a 30-40% speedup using 1.9.2, even though
I thought most of the bottleneck was in my C extension code.

Sorry for continuous mail.

I forgot see the previous mail, and I think:

  • try get tarball in yourself and build&install it (like
    –prefix=pwd/local)
  • test gem command (local/bin/gem env)

RVM sometime makes unhappy.

hmm, you got me there. never thought of that. somehow, my rvm sets

Rather than just saying “your script should not depend on the current

why are you installing rubygems? 1.9.x ships with rubygems. 1.9.2-p0
ships with rubygems 1.3.7. I can appreciate your predicament, but I
don’t see why you’re in it.

Dear everyone having Gem.path issues:

I compile manually. Install to /usr/local. Pretty standard. I had 1.9.2
preview 3 installed.

I installed 1.9.2p0, got the Gem.path error.

Here’s the simple solution that worked for me: nuke the gems, make
install again.

sudo rm -rf /usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.9.1/ubygem
cd your-ruby-src-path
sudo make install # assuming you have it compiled from before

Oh, that’s interesting.

Turns out rubygems was trying to load from
/usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.9.1/rubygems, but the newly installed
rubygems are in /usr/local/lib/ruby/1.9.1/rubygems. So, that’s probably
what was wrong. I guess you don’t even need to make install again,
just nuke the unwanted gem installation in site_ruby.

Again, the paths:

  • /usr/local/lib/ruby/1.9.1/rubygems # <== good
  • /usr/local/lib/ruby/site_ruby/1.9.1/rubygems # <== bad

Fair warning: This may only apply to my system. Think twice before you
go rm -rf-happy on yours. :stuck_out_tongue:

Incredible, your post was right on time for me! I struggled to get
ruby-opengl compiled with 1.9.2 because of the “`bin_path’: can’t find
executable rake” issue which for the hell I couldn’t figure out what’s
wrong.

I’m using rvm so deleting
~/.rvm/rubies/ruby-1.9.2-p0/lib/ruby/gems/1.9.1/specifications/rake.gemspec
fixed this for me -> many thanks!

Same issue with 1.9.2-head too (not surprisingly) so
~/.rvm/rubies/ruby-1.9.2-head/lib/ruby/gems/1.9.1/specifications/rake.gemspec
went to Kansans too.
