YARV Merged Matz
(Koichi Sasada has requested I print the following. He is the scribe.)
In an article entitled RubySpaMeeting2006, daigo wrote that “YARV will merge Ruby 1.9 on Valentine’s Day.” In fact, at that time, YARV will only merge into a CVS branch, not to 1.9 HEAD (matz’ plan).
However, the result is YARV merged matz! matz has an acount for the YARV subversion repository. This is because YARV has some problem with CVS. Most of it is filenames. There are some “yarv…” files. YARV is only a code name and it should vanish with the Ruby 2.0 release. So, I and matz and other YARV developers will rename the files and the API calls (which has same problem: vanish yarv_… API) and so on.
I hope that Ruby development VCS will be Subversion when YARV is finally merged.
YARV (on subversion repository) works fine (... but there are some errors on make test, test-all). Please check your Ruby applications on YARV. Bug reports are very welcome.
