From: Yugui (Yuki Sonoda) on

I have just released Ruby 1.9.2-preview3. This is a preview release of
Ruby 1.9.2. Ruby 1.9.2 will be mostly compatible with 1.9.1, except the
following changes:
* Many new methods
* New socket API (IPv6 support)
* New encodings
* Random class that supports various random number generators
* Time is reimplemented. There is no longer the year 2038 problem.
* some regexp enhancements
* $: no longer includes the current directory.
* dl is reimplemented on top of libffi.
* new psych library that wraps libyaml. You can use the library instead
of syck.

See [*1][*2] for more detail.


== Request for comments
There remain some bugs[*3], however, it works mostly fine and passes >=
99% of RubySpec. Please try it out with your ruby program.

This preview release is the last chance to oppose a compatibility issue.
If you have a serious compatibility problem with Ruby 1.9.2, let us know
before Ruby 1.9.2-rc1 will be released on 30, Jun.
