This is a tracking bug for Change: Ruby 2.1

Ruby 2.1 is the latest stable version of Ruby, with major increases in speed, memory efficiency and reliability. With this major update from Ruby 2.0.0 in Fedora 20 to Ruby 2.1 in Fedora 21, alongside JRuby, Fedora becomes the superior Ruby development platform.

Hello Vit,

I wrote a draft of the Ruby 2.1 release note for Fedora 21 Alpha. Please take a look at https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Documentation_Development_Beat#Ruby_2.1 and let me know if it's fine, or if you'd like to add or change anything.

(In reply to Petr Bokoc from comment #1)
Thanks for doing that and yes, the release notes seems reasonable.

Comment 3 Jaroslav Reznik 2014-10-07 12:23:56 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 21 Change Checkpoint: 100% Code Complete Deadline (Former Accepted Changes 100% Complete) is on 2014-10-14 [1].

All Accepted Changes has to be code complete and ready to be validated in the Beta release (optionally by Fedora QA). Required bug state at this point is ON_QA.

As for several System Wide Changes, Beta Change Deadline is a point of contingency plan. All incompleted Changes will be reported to FESCo on 2014-10-15 meeting. In case of any questions, don't hesitate to ask Wrangler (jreznik).
