I’ve helped port a number of popular packages, including Builder, Html5lib, libxml2, ruby-openid, rexml, and xmpp4r to Ruby 1.9, and by the time of this talk there undoubtedly will be more. This talk will cover the issues that were found and how they were addressed, focusing on pragmatic solutions to real problems.
If all turns out to be well worth it, this talk will also cover the benefits that come with Ruby 1.9, including performance, character encoding support, and true multitasking.
