Issue #5542 has been updated by Joshua Ballanco.


This was introduced in r29638:


    * object.c: Make BasicObject.new accept no parameter.
      Revert of r26135 [ruby-core:27080], as per [ruby-core:32952].

Was this change in BasicObject.new intentional? If so, is it intentional that this behavior should be different than 1.9.2? If not can we have this back-ported?

Bug #5542: Ruby 1.9.3-p0 changed arity on default initialization method

Target version: 
ruby -v: ruby 1.9.3p0 (2011-10-30 revision 33570) [x86_64-darwin11.2.0]


The following code worked under 1.9.2-p290 but breaks with an Argument Error (1 for 0) under 1.9.3-p0:

    class Foo; end
    Foo.new(nil)

Furthermore, the reported arity for Object's initialize method has changed:

    ruby-1.9.2-p290 :001 > Object.instance_method(:initialize).arity
     => -1 

    ruby-1.9.3-p0 :001 > Object.instance_method(:initialize).arity
     => 0
