Ruby Version History


#1

Where can I find Ruby Version History? I need to check differences
between them.

The ChangeLog in the repository:

http://www.ruby-lang.org/en/community/ruby-core/

Or on the web:

I am for something like main differences/improvements between stable
versions like 0.95, 1.0, 1.8, 1.9 .

You can pull a truck and run something like git svn log in that dir
that you have pulled. the svn url is a good one.

I don’t believe those are stored anywhere. You’ll have to construct
them from the tags/ directory of the SVN repo.

Ruby’s source control system leaves much to be desired. If you try
to checkout tags you’ll get gigabytes of mostly redundant
information, which is silly. If you check out trunk you won’t get
the tags.

The ruby source code isn’t that large. The actual code in trunk
seems to be only about 15M. The compressed history, including tags
and branches, seems to be only about 13M. With a better source
control system you should be able to download and manage the entire
history without wasting much bandwidth or disk space. That could be
very beneficial.

Reflecting on this it seems surprisingly wasteful given the Ruby
community’s apparent concern for the environment.

Why bother checking out everything? Know your tools!

Eric, your post is hilarious. Check out the second to last line:

svn: ‘svn_diff_sucks_ass’ returned 2

If somebody converts this repository to something decent I’ll be the
first to buy them a beer.

I do. That’s why I avoid using that tool. Look at your example.
How am I supposed to know in advance to look in the directory tags/
v1_8_4/ChangeLog unless I get that information from somewhere else?
Also, If I need that version I’m going to have to download the whole
thing rather than just use a cheap local delta. A better tool would
give me all the information I need without external source, without
lots of disk space, and without lots of bandwidth.

Sadly, my access to unicorns is limited.

So I guess your magical tool doesn’t exist either.

I could name at least 3 of them.
