Will Ruby 1.8.2 include tcl/tk 8.4.x instead of 8.3?

Will Ruby 1.8.2 release come with tcl/tk 8.4.7 libraries?

Thanks.

Is that a binary package of Ruby 1.8.2 ?
If you say about source files, Ruby/Tk can work with Tcl/Tk8.4.7. 
I already tested that Ruby/Tk works with Tcl/Tk8.4.7 and 8.5a1 
(and ActiveTcl-8.4.6.1 binary package).
Unless Tcl/Tk's API has incompatible changes, you'll be able to 
use the latest Tcl/Tk libraries under current Ruby/Tk source codes
(Maybe you need to call Tk.tk_call() to control new features of 
the Tcl/Tk libraries). The only thing you must do is to remake 
ext/tcltklib/tcltklib.so which links to the latest Tcl/Tk libraries 
(Please see ext/tcltklib/README.1st).

Correct.  I saw that tcl/tck 8.3 binaries are included when I install 
Ruby using RubyInstaller.

My ruby --version is "ruby 1.8.2 (2004-06-29) [i386-mswin32]".

Since ruby has been tested with tcl/tk 8.4, I'm hoping ruby 1.8.2 will 
included the newer version.
