Updated: Ruby 2.0.0-p481
Fri Aug 29 16:00:00 GMT 2014
The following packages have been updated in or added to the Cygwin
Ruby is the interpreted scripting language for quick and easy
object-oriented programming. It has many features to process text files
and to do system management tasks (as in Perl). It is simple,
straight-forward, and extensible.
This is a major update to the latest release in the 2.0 series. The
packaging scheme of gems has been changed considerably, based on Fedora.
Gems are now installed under /usr/share/gems (except for compiled C
extensions) for better FHS compliance and to avoid having to rebuild
noarch gems for each future major Ruby release. Each gem also comes
with a separate -doc package with the generated documentation, which can
be either viewed in a web browser (served with 'gem server') or from the
command-line (with 'ri').
