Is there any ETA on when a precompiled ruby 2.5.3 will be available for macOS build environments?
Last week we pushed a change to our
.ruby-version file to use
2.5.3, and our macOS build stopped working.
(Specifically: the command
rvm use $(< .ruby-version) --install --binary --fuzzy fails, because the
--binary flag prevents compiling from source).
Initially we thought we may have needed to use the latest image, so we also pushed a
.travis.yml change that went from
osx_image: xcode9.3 to
xcode10, but that made no difference.
After investigating further, we came across
http://rubies.travis-ci.org/, and subsequently
https://github.com/travis-ci/travis-rubies, where we submitted a PR (based on the README instructions) for 2.5.3.
Unfortunately, the PR failed to build, and it is not immediately clear from the build logs why. (We’re guessing that this very same failure is the reason why a precompiled 2.5.3 was not already available prior to our PR).
Just wondering if you have an idea when we can expect support for this latest ruby version on macOS build environments?
For what it’s worth, 2.5.3 contains no additional features/fixes over 2.5.2 (which IS already on the list of precompiled rubies for macOS), it just fixes a packaging issue with 2.5.2.
