Ruby and Lighttpd updates in OpenSolaris
By MandyWaite on Dec 22, 2009
As of build 129 of OpenSolaris Ruby, Lighttpd and RubyGems have been updated to the following versions:
- Ruby 1.8.7 patch level 174
- RubyGems 1.3.5
- Lighttpd 1.4.23
Lighttpd is a couple of revs behind, when we started the update 1.4.24 had just been released and had a couple of issues which we would have needed to patch. At that time darix and stbeuhler weren't sure if they would release a 1.4.25 to fix theses issues so we took an executive decision to go with 1.4.23 and update to a later version via the OpenSolaris /dev repository after the release of OpenSolaris 2010.03. 1.4.25 made it out before we integrated but given the processes we have to ensure component and build quality it's not a good idea to change versions at the 11th hour. We'll probably push Lighttpd 1.4.25 out via the /webstack repo.
These same version updates are going into WebStack 1.6 which will be available around the same time as OpenSolaris 2010.03
