rubygems & bundler news

This month, we released new versions for RubyGems 3.2.31, and 3.2.32, and Bundler 2.2.31, and 2.2.32.

Here are a few of the more interesting changes from those versions of RubyGems and Bundler. As always, see the changelogs for complete details.

  • fixed a gem fetch vs. gem install inconsistency about platform-specific gems - #5037.
  • fixed issues with --destdir and --prefix options to RubyGems installer to help OS packagers.
  • improved an error message about git being missing - #5036, and fixed an issue where Bundler hid the system man pages - #5039.
  • adapted both clients to a recent gemification of some libraries (optparse, pathname).
  • improved bundle install usability by automatically unlocking dependencies if a lock file got expired by Gemfile changes, instead of logging an error message - #5068.
  • fixed a bundle update issue related to not being able to downgrade Gemfile dependencies properly, and worked on some promising refactorings of Bundler internals in the context of ensuring we never generate corrupted lock files - #5078.
  • started doing work on version locking for Bundler.

In November, RubyGems gained 134 new commits, contributed by 12 authors. There were 3,815 additions and 743 deletions across 137 files.
