Ruby 1.9.2 is out!!

August 18th, 2010 Posted in News, Programming, Ruby, Ruby on Rails

Just got the news in Twitter today that Ruby 1.9.2 is out! This is the Ruby that we’ve been long-awaits which shouldn’t have any strange compatibility issue with the upcoming Rails 3, and wayyyy faster than 1.8.7.

The timing couldn’t be better, as we’re celebrating #whyday (@celebratewhyday) tomorrow (Aug 19.) On that day, you would get hacking on something great! It’s the best time to trying to test out your application, or hacking something, using Ruby 1.9.2.

So what’re you waiting for? Download it, install it, and running your application on it. Go grab it while it’s hot!

By the way, if you’re using the awesome RVM (And why shouldn’t you??) Just go ahead and do:

rvm update --head && rvm reload && rvm install 1.9.2 && rvm 1.9.2 --default

And have fun riding on this shiny Ruby! I warn you, it’s slippery. 😉
