RubyGems/RDoc 1.8.6 policy

Saw this earlier today, might be something to think about in the near
future for IronRuby and compatibility.

Looks like we’ll need an IronRuby 1.0.1 that brings us up to 1.8.7.
Unless
we can get to 1.9 faster…

Yup, thats what it appears. I’m willing to work on either, just depends
on what people’s needs are. I personally would be prefer just pushing
forward with 1.9 support but I don’t know the state of 1.9 vs 1.8.7
support.

-Zac

Are there any particular 1.8.7 features you know that don’t work in
IronRuby 1.0? Note that you can pass -1.8.7 command line argument to
ir.exe, which enabels some 1.8.7 features.

To be honest, no. I went straight from 1.8.6 to 1.9. I never actually
tried to use 1.8.7 so I’m not aware of its differences from 1.8.6 and
1.9.

-Zac

I don’t know how complete we are in respect to 1.8.7, but I don’t think
we should focus on it unless there is considerable requests for it.
Between this Rubygems announcement and Rails, I would expect we’ll start
seeing a stronger move to 1.9 in the next year.
