Ruby 1.9 eta? continuations in std lib?

Hi - two related questions, is there a reasonable ballpark timeframe
to expect Ruby 1.9 to become official/stable/production-ready? And am
I right in thinking that all I have to do to port continuation-based
code to 1.9 is require continuations from the standard lib?

(Q1) timeframe for 1.9 to be production ready

We don’t know. We REALLY hope it comes soon. But there are so many
variables involved. Only good news is 1.9 spec is almost fixed at
the last Christmas.

(Q2) porting continuation based code to 1.9

You have to explicitly require ‘continuation’ library which is bundled
in the standard distribution. Besides that, all code should work
fine. If not, report it as a bug.

And, from my own experience testing stuff for PickAxe3, work now with
the maintainers of the Gems you use to make sure they will be
compatible. As it stands now, about 30-50% of the Gems I’ve been using
are not. The changes are mostly trivial, but they’ll need to get made.

That’s one of the great things about Matz releasing 1.9 as a
development release: we all get a lot of time to handle the migration.

fine. If not, report it as a bug.

                                                    matz.

Thanks Matz! :slight_smile:

Hopefully I can give an updated number in about 4 weeks.
