List of new features between 1.8.1 and 1.8.2?

Typical newby question - is there a list of new features between 1.8.1
and 1.8.2?

Just to add I started rubying last year, have stuck with it, love the
language (my favourite), just bought (and am reading) the pickaxe2
book.  Love it.  Well done those involved, keep up the great work.

As Matz announced (on Christmas): this is mainly a bug fix release and a 
list of changes will come soon. Meanwhile if you really wish, you could look 
in to the ChangeLog file in your source dir.

Cheers,
Antonio

math changes from 1.8.1 to 1.8.2?
I've got some code that does simulated fixed-point math and things like exp(-x). I find that my simulations work fine on a Windows XP box, Pentium IV, Ruby 1.8.2. However, when I run the same exact Ruby code on my Powerbook G4 running Ruby 1.8.1 I get lots of errors from my unit tests. I suspect that what I'm doing is really stressing the floating point operations so it could just be a difference between the G4 and Pentium FPUs, but I'm also wondering if there were changes between Ruby 1.8.1 and Ruby 1.8.2 that might account for this (even changes to the way Bignum works...

Ruby extension (C++) on OS X [ruby 1.8.2] and Google-Sketchup [ruby 1.8.5]
Hi, I have written a ruby extension in C++ and it works fine on OS X Tiger which ships ruby-1.8.2. With the succesful test of the extension (bundle), I then proceed to try to use it within Google-Sketchup [which I think embeds ruby-1.8.5].

ruby 1.8.4 gives warnings where ruby 1.8.2 doesn't
Hi, How do I disable warning output in Ruby? The servers at work use ruby 1.8.2, which gives no warning when running some rake / rails scripts. If I rsync / copy those scripts to my ruby 1.8.4 machine and run them there, I get loads of warnings. I don't want to downgrade my beloved Ruby, can anyone tell me how I can simply disable those warnings at run-time? Thanks -- To reply, take of all ZIGs !!

GCC 3.3.3 and Ruby 1.8.0 and 1.8.1
We recently upgraded to GCC 3.3.3 and now we can no longer compile ruby due to its use of some obsoleted constructs.

Why is Ruby 1.8.6 RC1 more recent than Ruby 1.8.6 Final?
Getting to the Ruby One-click installer for Windows, we may go to http://www.ruby-lang.org/en/downloads/ and then http://rubyinstaller.org/download.html however over there, it seems that Ruby 1.8.6 RC1 (patchlevel 383) is actually more recent than Ruby 1.8.6 RC2 (patchlevel 27) or Ruby 1.8.6 Final (patchlevel 26) If I install them on different machines, the RC1 actually shows a more recent date than RC2 or Final, by using ruby -v What's the rule? Does it go strictly by patchlevel? That is, the patchlevel decides how update it is, instead of whether it is R...

Best way to upgrade from 1.8.2 to 1.8.4 on Linux? #2
I have installed from source Ruby in the folder /usr/lib/ruby-1.8.2/. (I use Linux) If I do "which ruby" I get /usr/local/bin/ruby. It seems that Ruby has created the folder /usr/local/bin and filled it with ruby, irb, etc... I don't mind, this is all fine. Now my question is: when at XMAS Metz dressed like Santa will bring me Ruby 1.8.4, how should I upgrade? I was thinking do to the following: 1) Remove the folder /usr/lib/ruuby-1.8.2/ 2) Install Ruby 1.8.4 from source in /usr/lib/ruby-1.8.4/ 3) During the Installation of Ruby 1.8.4, it will overwrite automatically the folder...

Should I upgrade Ruby from 1.8.5 to 1.8.7?
I just upgraded to Rails 2.3.2 but my Ruby is still 1.8.5. Rails 2.3.2 doc says it work fine with 1.8.5 but it recommends 1.8.7.

(Based on MS OS Windows XP SP2 with all patches ...)

There is no problem with LV 7.1.1. ( If the VI-Server Configuration of the .exe will be done within the .ini -File...) The differences between LV 7.1.1 are in the .ini-File of the application regarding the the access-List property. Error 66 occures if ther is no entry in the access-List property.-&gt; OK.
