The ruby down load page has…
* Ruby 1.9.1-p129 (md5: c71f413514ee6341c627be2957023a5c) Stable Version (recommended)
Which suggests that the 1.9.1 branch is the stable branch
* Stable Snapshot This is tarâ€™ed and gzipâ€™ed file of the latest stable SVN. It should be better than the last stable release.
However this file corresponds to the
code. And shows up as version 1.8.8
ie. Very far from the 1.9.1 “stable version recommended”.
* Nightly Snapshot This is tarâ€™ed and gzipâ€™ed file of the latest SVN. It may contain unfixed problems.
What does this correspond to?
Is there a “Stable Snapshot” of the 1.9.1 branch?
The ruby issue tracker lists…
* Ruby 1.9 - Edge version of Ruby o Ruby 1.9.1 - The latest stable release of Ruby 1.9 series. * Ruby 1.8 - Stable development version of Ruby o Ruby 1.8.6 - An ancient stable release of Ruby that Rails
o Ruby 1.8.7 - A stable release of Ruby for bridging a gap between the 1.8 and 1.9.
Which doesn’t even mention 1.8.8
