Set Ruby 3 Free
So, 2020 is coming to a close. Rather than dwell on it, let us instead look forward to the consant gift of the season for Rubyists: a new Ruby version. Since we talked about Truffle Ruby last month, we figured it was reasonable to turn the spotlight back onto CRuby. This release should be a big one: version 3 is planned to be released on or around Christmas day. It’s been almost 8 years since Ruby 2.0.0-p0 was released, bringing with it refinements and a change in the default encoding of Ruby scripts to UTF-8. So, what does Ruby 3 promise us?
We have no speaker this week, instead we’ll wander through the release together and discuss what it turns up.
