[ANN] RubyInstaller 1.9.3-p286 released Luis Lavena 10/21/12 7:43 AM
In combination with the rest of the RubyInstaller team, I'm very
pleased to announce the release of RubyInstaller packages for Ruby

As usual, installer and 7z packages are available at RubyInstaller
website and RubyForge for download:


For verification, MD5 signatures of each file released are provided:

c44504cd9ba6c21da981803579c60f9f *ruby-1.9.3-p286-doc-chm.7z
8ba0d2203590dbf8e9d59d9d731c05d0 *ruby-1.9.3-p286-i386-mingw32.7z
256140c747422009ea04b10c8d638716 *rubyinstaller-1.9.3-p286.exe

Installer is also digitally signed to avoid alterations and UAC warnings.

= What's new?

Beyond what is covered by Ruby itself, we have our own set of improvements:

* Enhancements:
  * Upgraded Ruby 1.9.3 to patchlevel 286
  * Convert gdbm recipe to use Knapsack binaries
  * Convert pdcurses recipe to use Knapsack binaries
  * Convert tcl and tk recipes to use Knapsack binaries

* Bugfixes:
  * Decreased file descriptors for 1.9.x to 2K. Closes #104 (again)
    Ruby associates a file descriptor to a socket, so can't use more than
    2048 FDs
