isitruby19.com helps Ruby developers go 1.9
isitruby19.com is a new site, which, now that the recently released Ruby 1.9.1 has been declared ready for general use, aims to help Ruby developers make the transition to Ruby 1.9. Ruby 1.9 makes a wide range of changes to the Ruby language, which will mean that most code in gems will need checking and updating to work with it.
The "Is it Ruby 1.9" site allows developers to track the compatibility of Ruby Gems with the new version of the Ruby language and exchange feedback on progress of resolving issues with those gems. The site, created by Leeds based Rails hosting company Brightbox, should provide a useful tool to the Ruby community and may well help speed up the adoption of Ruby 1.9, by reducing confusion over which gems work.
