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.
