RubyInstaller-2.7.7-1 - 2022-11-27

Added

  • Restrict write permissions to the installing user. For several reasons we use C:/RubyXXX direcory by default but not C:/Program Files (see: oneclick/rubyinstaller#135 ). Using an install path under C:/ previously inherited write permissions for everyone, which compromised security in a multi user environment.
  • ridk use Add options to store the change permanently in the user or system environment variables. #314

Changed

  • Update to ruby-3.0.5, see release notes.
  • Update of the SSL CA certificate list.
  • Update the bundled MSYS2 keyring package.
  • Fix start menu entry for rubygems-server.
  • Run the ruby command prompt in the start menu with ridk enable.
  • Update the start menu entry with the newly installed ruby version. They kept the old ruby version previously.
  • Fix possible crash in ridk use. #291

Removed

  • No longer create registry keys under Software\RubyInstaller\MRI\<RubyVersion>. #242 They weren't used any longer and didn't distinguish between 32 and 64-bit versions.
  • No longer install the 32 bit but only the 64 bit version of MSYS2 as part of ridk install. It is still possible to get a pure 32-bit MSYS2 and Ruby installation by using the 32-bit RubyInstaller+Devkit package.
  • The file <ruby>\bin\ruby_builtin_dlls\libssp-0.dll is no longer shipped as part of RubyInstaller. It is no longer needed with the latest gcc, but previously installed gems with extensions link to this DLL. The dependency to libssp-0.dll is currently still fulfilled by the bundled MSYS2 distribution. To re-compile the gem without this DLL gem pristine --extensions can be used.

RubyInstaller-2.7.6-1 - 2022-04-19

Changed

  • Update to ruby-2.7.6, see release notes.
  • Update of the SSL CA certificate list.
  • No longer require fiddle before booting Rubygems, but use the new C-extension "win32/dll_directory". Fixes #251

Removed

  • No longer respond to MSYSTEM environment variable for setting a cross build environment. #269

Added

  • Add migration of new MSYS2 signature keys to "ridk install". #184, #182
  • Add RDoc based RI documentation as an install option. It can be used per tab completion in irb.
  • Add automake-1.16 package.
  • Run autorebase.bat at installation on 32 bit x86 systems. This is required with more recent versions of msys32.

    • removes itself from PATH when returning to original ruby.

  • Update to InnoSetup-6 which enables a larger and resizable installer window.
  • Skip gemspec based package install if dependency is already satisfied. #67 This avoids unwanted/unnecessary up- or downgrades of MSYS2/MINGW packages on "gem install" when a package is already installed and the version meets optional version constraints.
  • Update of the SSL CA certificate list.
  • Fix a memory leak in DllDirectory.
  • Fix vendoring issue of recent MSYS2 system.

RubyInstaller-2.7.0-1 - 2020-01-05

This is the first release based on ruby-2.7.0: https://www.ruby-lang.org/en/news/2019/12/25/ruby-2-7-0-released/

Changes compared to RubyInstaller-2.6.5-1

  • Replace rb-readline by new reline implementation. It has multiline editing, better support for UTF-8 encoding and many fixes.
  • UTF-8 encoding is now enabled by default in the installer. This is done by setting RUBYOPT=-Eutf-8 and affects Encoding.default_encoding which is then "UTF-8" instead of the console encoding. See core API for more details. Using UTF-8 default encoding avoids inconsistencies between reading and writing files and to other operating systems.
  • IRB history is rewritten to UTF-8 if UTF-8 encoding is enabled.
