Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 706332
Update Ruby to the latest point release
Last modified: 2011-12-06 07:07:56 EST
There are Ruby 1.8.7-p334 available. This version should not introduce any API/ABI breakage and fixes several security issues.
It seems that even newer point release might be available: http://blade.nagaokaut.ac.jp/cgi-bin/vframe.rb/ruby/ruby-core/36406?36237-36829+split-mode-vertical
Vit, are any new features expected to be introduced with this patch release?
