Hello all,

This is a summary of ruby-dev mailing list.


[ruby-dev:20818] ThreadGroup#wait

 Nobu Nakada posted a patch to add 2 new functions; Thread#group
 that returns a ThreadGroup which the thread contains, and 
 ThreadGroup#wait that makes the current thread to wait waking up
 threads in the ThreadGroup.
 Matz accepted Thread#group to add, but for release engineering
 effort and bugs found in ThreadGroup#wait, the latter function 
 was rejected in 1.8.0. 


[ruby-dev:20868] ruby 1.8.0 preview4

 As you all know, Ruby 1.8.0 preview4 has been released.

   ftp://ftp.ruby-lang.org/pub/ruby/1.8/ruby-1.8.0-preview4.tar.gz

 There are already so many bug reports and patches from testers,
 and Matz is still running into the final 1.8.0 release at the end
 of July.  Let's try it out and report to make final release stable.


[ruby-dev:20932] move ChangeLog

 Tanaka Akira requested to move ChangeLog entries before 1.8.0 
 to another file such as doc/ChangeLog-1.8.0.  Akinori MUSHA 
 and Matz agreed with moving old entries, and the topic turned
 when, what and how to move it.
