= RubyInstaller and version of GCC
It is important to mention that this version (along with all 1.9.2 and
recent 1.8.7 releases) uses
and requires GCC 4.5.2, which is the current version of our Development
Attempts to use previous versions of GCC (3.4.5) will not work and
generate random errors.
Also, users not using RubyInstaller DevKit but instead mingw.org GCC
4.6.1, bewarned that usage of -fno-omit-frame-pointer option is
required due somechanges
on how GCC deal with _setjmp.
Bug reports filled for those issues will be immediately closed.
