We have no plans to port the REE patches to Ruby 1.9. It's too much of
an undertaking. Instead of fragmenting our man power, we want to focus
on our core products such as Phusion Passenger. One of the features
that's going to be in Passenger 4 is the ability to run multiple Ruby
versions from a single Phusion Passenger instance so that you can have
your Ruby 1.8 and Ruby 1.9 web apps side-by-side. REE will continue to
be maintained for the forseeable future, but only bug fixes and
security updates will be applied.
