Welcome to the RubyEncoder news. We'll keep you up to date with our latest developments and we have some exciting plans in the pipeline

Loaders for Ruby 2.1

We have compiled loaders for Ruby 2.1 for Mac OS X, Linux and Windows (VC10 mswin). These loaders are compatible with Ruby 2.0 encoding, and there is no new release of RubyEncoder yet. You may run files encoded in Ruby 2.0 mode under Ruby 2.1 with new loaders.

Please download from our loaders page http://rubyencoder.com/loaders.html 

There is no version for MinGW at the moment as there is no official build of Ruby 2.1 from RubyInstaller. MSWIN version is experimental. If you need Ruby 2.1 loaders for any other platform that we support, please contact us in support.

Also we packed 32 and 64 bit loaders for MSWIN VC9 and VC10 into 2 packages instead of 4. 64-bit loaders can be automatically loaded as they have x64 suffix in their file names. 

Current Ruby 2.1 loaders are partly compatible with new Ruby 2.1 language options.

Ruby 2.1 language options that work:

  • Refinements 
  • def is returning a value
  • String#scrub

Ruby 2.1 language options that do not work with new loaders:

  • Rational and Complex literals
  • Named arguments without a default value

Full support of all the new language features will be added in the new release of RubyEncoder 2.1 However, this will require re-encoding of the files in the new Ruby 2.1 mode.
