[ANN] RubyInstaller 1.9.3-p286 released Luis Lavena 10/21/12 7:44 AM
In combination with the rest of the RubyInstaller team, I'm very
pleased to announce the release of RubyInstaller packages for Ruby
1.9.3-p286

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

http://rubyinstaller.org/downloads
http://rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=167&release_id=46999

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
