Ruby 1.8.5 is Real Close, Here's Preview 4.
Today Matz announced 1.8.5-preview 4.
I’ve been running 1.8.5 for the last few weeks and, let me tell you, you’re in store for a ton of warnings. I was totally wrong about Frosted MiniColons. Matz is deprecating the lovely where-colon, which has really gained momentum out there, notably ActiveRecord is replete. Matz gives the fix: swap the plain colon with a semi.
ri is everywhere in this one. Every gem gets shaken for its
ri docs. It seems like
make install-doc takes a lot longer this time around. The SOAP4R scan nearly halts my 550MHz. But, hey extra docs, right?
