Ruby 1.9.2 RC1 has just been released. This is a release candidate of
Ruby 1.9.2.

Ruby 1.9.2 will be mostly compatible with 1.9.1, except the
following changes:
* Many new methods
* New socket API (IPv6 support)
* New encodings
* Random class that supports various random number generators
* Time is reimplemented. There is no longer the year 2038 problem.
* some regexp enhancements
* $: no longer includes the current directory.
* dl is reimplemented on top of libffi.
* new psych library that wraps libyaml. You can use the library instead
of syck.

Due to our schedule, Ruby 1.9.2 will be released in early August.
The schedule of Ruby 1.9.2 was once canceled in order to ensure that the
1.9.2 passes to RubySpec. Now the 1.9.2 passes > 99% of RubySpecs. Try
out the new Ruby and let us know if you have any trouble in the 1.9.2.
