Release types

We provide different releases and apply security updates on a regular basis. Currently available versions are listed below.

Standard version

If you don't select a certain version, our default will be used. We decided to default to version 3.1, which is considered to be stable by the developers.

Show available versions

Use uberspace tools version list ruby to show all selectable versions:

[isabell@stardust ~]$ uberspace tools version list ruby
- 2.7
- 3.0
- 3.1
[isabell@stardust ~]$

Change version

You can select the Ruby version with uberspace tools version use ruby <version>. You can choose between release branches:

[isabell@stardust ~]$ uberspace tools version use ruby 3.0
Selected ruby version 3.0
The new configuration is adapted immediately. Patch updates will be applied automatically.
[isabell@stardust ~]$

Selected version

You can check the selected version by executing uberspace tools version show ruby on the command line:

[isabell@stardust ~]$ uberspace tools version show ruby
Using 'ruby' version: 3.1
[isabell@stardust ~]$

Update policy

We update all versions on a regular basis. Once the support reaches its end of life (eol), the branch is no longer supported and will be removed from our servers.
