Hi all,

This is a summary of ruby-dev ML in these days.


  [ruby-dev:24638] Can't make ruby 1.9 on NetBSD

Since ruby 1.9, parse.y depends on bison.  naruse pointed out
that Ruby's README should notify it.
Matz decided to change the rule of Makefile to use bison,
not yacc.


  [ruby-dev:24651] Re: oniguruma: big regexp dumps core
  [ruby-dev:24709] imported Oni Guruma 3.4.0

Kazuo Saito, the maintainer of oniguruma, announced
changing policy of oniguruma in Ruby.

1) oniguruma's version to import into Ruby CVS became 3.*.

2) He applied patches to parse.y and re.c ([ruby-dev:23658]),
   so that the signature of mbclen(), ismbchar() and is_identchar()
   was changed (should use unsigned int).


  [ruby-dev:24661] MANIFEST
  [ruby-dev:24669] Re: MANIFEST

WATANABE Hirofumi deleted all MANIFEST files in Ruby 1.8/1.9,
according to a suggestion by himself.

Matz announced that ruby 1.8.2 preview 3 was available.
You can get at:
