As it stands right now there is no 1.1.7; 1.2 is “it”. But we should
probably try to figure out what we want to have “done” for 1.2 and what
level of “done” it should be at. 1.9 support was a big bite, but I think
we’re getting pretty close.
- Marcin: what’s your status on the 1.9 API work you’ve been doing? How much
longer do you think it will take? Where do you need help?
- Tom: What remaining 1.9 parser changes do you think we need in 1.2? For
example, do we need to get the encoding pragma stuff in before release?
Additional list of things for 1.2 (not just 1.9 stuff):
- M17n is not hooked up in parser at all (not sure how much this will
- I am not sure if this is so important or not (Unless there is a
strong outcry for this then this is lower priority to me than
improving Rails perf for 1.2). Without it we will be 1.9 with the
limitation of reading source code/strings like 1.8 does. Except for
people with multibyte strings (literals), I am not sure anyone would
notice. Reading 1.9 data using File/String libs will work as expected
in 1.9 if Marcin is far enough along.
- If people really want this then I may consider it as my JRuby
- No 1.9 standard library imported yet [JRUBY-3314]
- Make sure we are passing a majority of rubyspec run (or at least
know what we are not going support by running against rubyspec).
- Windows has not been able to run Rails since 1.1.4/5. We need to
add a windows flag or at least correct the drive-letter issue people
are having (submitted patch is not right since it modifies
standard-library in one place…this is more invasive) [JRUBY-1401].
- Conclusion to leak issues we have been trying to figure out with GF.
- Others: Are there specific bugs you’re hoping to see in 1.2? Do you have
time to help on bugs?
For me I hope to get remaining 1.9 compiler work done. I think stabby lambda
is in pretty good shape, but I need a bit more work on method/block
arguments and multiple assignment. I also need to pull in 1.9 tests/specs so
we know how close we’re getting.
