It includes a patch for Ruby. I have already installed 1.8.4 from
source, and updated my PATH to look in /usr/local first, so I don't
imagine that anything Apple does to "their" copy of Ruby will have any
impact on me, but I'm wondering if the changes to their Ruby is
something that needs to be done to 1.8.4 as well.

Thoughts?

You should go read the Ruby's home page to find out.

I updated. I had previously installed ruby in /usr/local/bin and had put
in
a softlink from /usr/bin (where OSX has ruby) to /usr/local/bin/ruby.
The
update blew this away, stopped stuff working (like rubygems). So, I had
to
go in and restore the link. After that, all OK. So far...

And where on the front page does it mention anything about Apple's
recent
OSX Security Update?

It says that 1.8.2 and previous have the problem, and that there is a
fix in 1.8.3 and later.

Thanks all!

Looks like Apple fixed it in-place: (after running system update)

/usr/bin/ruby -v
ruby 1.8.2 (2004-12-25) [powerpc-darwin8.0]

(vs:

/usr/local/bin/ruby -v
ruby 1.8.4 (2005-12-24) [powerpc-darwin8.6.0]
)

So that means we can use rails without installing local ruby copies?
I like that.

I did the update and Locomotive won't run launch apps anymore. It
freezes the entire machine on an intel MacBook Pro.

soho:~/Sites/tracks jathayde$ ruby -v
ruby 1.8.4 (2005-12-24) [i686-darwin8.6.1]

Anyone else seen this behavior?

Rails doesn't make use of $SAFE.  It will work exactly the same after
the update as it did before.
