Bug #1336: Change in string representation of Floats
http://redmine.ruby-lang.org/issues/show/1336

Author: Brian Ford
Status: Open, Priority: Normal
Category: core, Target version: 1.9.x
ruby -v: ruby 1.9.2dev (2009-03-30 trunk 23098) [i386-darwin9.6.0]

Did the displayed formats of Floats change in 1.9?

There was a thread [ruby-core:22595] on the ML about the format of Floats and marshaling, but there does not appear to be any indication that the normal display format would change. Also, I did not see any mention of a change of format in the Changelog.
