3rd Party Repository: Brightbox Ruby NG Experimental

This repository is available for: Precise  Trusty  Vivid  Wily  Xenial  Yakkety 

Title: Ruby with experimental performance enhancements


We’ve been providing optimized Ruby 1.8 and Rubygems 1.3.7 packages for Ubuntu for years now but some technical issues prevented us from providing 1.9.3 packages alongside them. So we started out afresh from the very latest Debian 1.8.7 and 1.9.3 packages, and added:

Ruby Enterprise Edition patches for 1.8.7-358 (2012.02)
Built Ruby 1.9.3 with Google’s high performance memory allocator, tcmalloc
Added Sokolov Yura‘s performance patches for 1.9.3
Added Narihiro Nakamura’s Bitmap Marking garbage collector (backported by Sakolov Yura)
Patched Ruby 1.9.3 to export the right symbols to work with ruby-debug

So this gives you Ruby 1.8.7, Ruby 1.9.3 and Rubygems 1.8.21 on Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid through to the upcoming Ubuntu 12.04 Precise. You can install both Ruby 1.8.7 and 1.9.3 alongside each other and switch between them effortlessly. We’ve also updated our Passenger packages to work with both versions of Ruby (and our NGINX Passenger packages too).
