    Hi, folks.

    I am proud to announce the release of Ruby 1.9.1. This is the first
    stable release of Ruby 1.9 series.

    Ruby 1.9 is a new series of Ruby. It is modern, faster, with clearer
    syntax, multilingualized and much improved version of Ruby. Ruby 1.8
    series has been used since 2003 and many great products were born on it.
    Today Ruby 1.9 series starts its history as 1.8 series did.

    Notice that Ruby 1.8 still remains. 1.8.8 will be released this year.

    == Changes
    You can read about major chanes since 1.8.7 at at
    http://svn.ruby-lang.org/repos/ruby/tags/v1_9_1_0/NEWS .

    We have fixed 7 bugs since 1.9.1 RC2.

    Three cheers for the entire Ruby core team who has worked so hard to
    bring us this release! Please know that we appreciate your efforts.

    James Edward Gray II

    P.S. Does this mean we beat Perl 6? :D (This is a joke folks.
    Relax!)

  6. A huge thanks to all of ruby-core for this, and for your hard work on
    release management, Yugui.
    Now that Ruby 1.9 is released, it seems there is no need for 1.8.7.

    Is there a possibility that Ruby 1.8.8 will go back to being similar
    to 1.8.6 and remove the 1.9 compatibility shims?
    This would make maintaining old 1.8 code much easier.

    Capital job, all of you. Nobu, Tanaka Akira, usa, yugui. And
    especially koichi and matz. A big day for both of you. The new VM is
    a lot of fun and you've worked so hard.

    Also, many thanks to this list. I've often encountered Ruby 1.9
    "bugs" and confusions, but it was all easily dismissed by finding
    discussions about the internals which had already transpired here.

    Yeah, so hearty backslaps and many rigorous unending handshakes
    all around, this is great.

    hard to
    bring this off!

  14. Congratulations! Now that the stable release is out, we will pull 1.9.1
    stdlib into JRuby. We'll ship our 1.9.1-compatible (mostly? hopefully?)
    release of JRuby 1.2 in late February.
    Is 1.8.8 going to be based on 1.8.6 or 1.8.7? And is it planned to
    change as many features as 1.8.7 did?

    JRuby will remain at 1.8.6 compatibility (in 1.8 mode) until such time
    that users let us know that they want support for 1.8.7+ features.

    Congradulations guys!! I am a noob so this might be a silly question to the
    majority, but can someone give me the steps to install 1.9 in my vista
    environment? Need some help. I already saved the zip folder. Should I be
    looking for an executable, becauseI cannot find it

    Thanks

    Awesome all the way!


    PS: whats the status of RubySpec project w.r.t Ruby 1.9.1 ? Are specs
    that fail are being corrected and stuff?

  20. I suggest you wait for the Windows One Click installer for 1.9/2.0.

    Unless something has changed the Windows builds you can download at
    garbagecollect are somewhat not completely finished. They are missing
    parts, and not even documenting which ones. You could write a "hello
    world" program using the build and perhaps explore some of the
    features fof the new interpreter but you cannot even install gems.

    I am not completely sure if anybody uses that stuff and what do they
    use it for. It just shows Ruby *can* be built for WIndwows I guess.

    Thanks
