SVN Revision 71

Whoops - sent to wrong list :slight_smile:

The major Ruby-visible change is the addition of super thanks to John
Messerly.

The constant generation bug that Peter reported is now fixed in this
revision.

You’ll also see some of the beginnings of our hosting API work on
console streams.

The rake test runner is broken on a StringScanner test issue. On
examining the test that fails, I really don’t understand what the test
is trying to do after looking at the sources. I’ve inverted the test in
a shelveset that I have here which does a bunch of other test-related
fixes (the goal is to drive all spec failures to zero using the exclude
functionality and use zero failures as a baseline for regression
testing).

Tomas is now working on fixing the scanner (yay). One of the outcomes I
want to see out of that work is zero failures out of the parser. Right
now we still blow up on some specs due to parser exceptions. This will
help drive the zero spec failure baseline from above.

Thanks,
-John

Does that include “turning on” Bignum?

Yes. I was hacking on turning on Bignum in another shelveset earlier,
but I think we can do it as part of that change.

Thanks,
