RubyEncoder for FreeBSD updated
Posted on: April 06th 2022 on 10:56pm
Loaders for macOS arm64 (M1)
We have added loaders for Apple Silicone Macs. Ruby 2.6, 2.7 only. Please note that loaders for x86_64 and arm64 differ and loader bundles are NOT built as universal bundles. So, please choose appropriate loaders for your system and Ruby installation.
Note, that the new arm64 loaders work with custom build Rubies compiled on Apple Silicone from source or similar installations. You may check the ruby executable architecture with 'file' tool on your Mac. Standard Ruby which may be preinstalled by Apple is arm64e architecture and while the new loaders may work with it, it's not recemmended that you use this combination.
Please download from our loaders page:

Version 2.7.1 GUI improvements
• Source Path column added to the project window.
• File masks in Preferences if they contain a slash are applied to absolute source paths instead of file names. This lets use masks to filter source folders or select appropriate encoding modes depending on source folders rather than file names.
• Option to show hidden files in Preferences/Interface. If enabled hidden (dot) files are shown in the Add Files popup and may be added to the project.
• New shortcuts for Lock (C+L) and Advanced (C+K).
• Locking options compatibility check for "encrypt-to" options which cannot be used with locking to a license file.
• Options compatibility check in Advanced options.
• Desktop, Documents and Volumes(macOS) shortcuts in Add Files popup.
Version 2.7 GUI encoder may be automatically updated. If you use an older version, please download the update from your user profile. You may need to update your support subscription in order to update. If you get any problems with automatic update, please download the recent version from your user profile and install over the current copy.
Note for Windows version users. Please re-run RubyEncoder 2.7 GUI with administrative permissions in order to perform automatic update.

RubyEncoder 2.7 launched! Includes Ruby 2.7 encoding
This major new release includes support for Ruby 2.7.
Please note, the files encoded with this version will require updated loaders. RubyEncoder 2.7 is available for Linux, MacOS and Windows as well as new loaders for these platforms. We are working on the new release for FreeBSD and also updating loaders for all the other supported platforms.
We tested encoding for Ruby 2.7 as much as possible using standard tests and encoding of some real working projects. Tested new Ruby 2.7 features. But if you find any problems with Ruby 2.7 encoding, please don't hesitate to contact us and we will work on fixing the issues asap. Thank you.
We updated a built-in starter code which you can see at the beginning of every RubyEncoder encoded file. The starter code is looking for an appropriate binary loader when the encoded Ruby code runs. Now it also checks a version number of the loader required for running the current encoded code and the loader which may be already loaded by another encoded file probably encoded with an older version of RubyEncoder. In the previous versions of RubyEncoder this may cause a problem when the newer encoder file can't run because of decoding by an already loaded older loader. Now the new starter code can re-load the newer version of the loader which is required by the current code. Newer loaders are always compatible with older encoded files and can run both old and new encoded files.
· Minor update for directories recursive search on Windows for the CLI version. Directories might appear in the log with an error which did not cause any issues though, we have fixed it in the new version.
· For the CLI version --ruby X.Y option was updated when used for excluding a range of target Ruby versions. This works as follows:
--ruby x.y adds x.y version only (no changes)
--ruby x.y+ (plus sign) adds x.y and higher versions (no changes)
--ruby x.y- (minus sign) skips x.y version only (new)
--ruby x.y-- (double minus sign) skips x.y and lower versions (previously worked with a single minus)
Note, the order --ruby options appear in the command line does matter.
· RGLoader::rg_get_const() API function returns an array of all the constants if no arguments are given
· MacOS Catalina support
· Optimized support for Ruby 2.6 and 2.7 global variables.
SUPPORTED RUBY VERSIONS
· Encoding for Ruby 1.8.7 to 2.7 are fully supported
