Ruby version release history

#1

I was trying to find a list of ruby versions and when they were
released.

All my google tricks seemed to fail me.

I tried to suss it out from the Ruby svn repository but there seems to
be a block hole event horizon at 3 years back, every old tag seems to
just say it was three years ago.

Is there a list somewhere on the inter webs that anyone knows of?

One little trick is to see the FTP site, where you can see the creation
time of
each tar.gz files. Anyway here you are an exhaustive list of Ruby’s
