April 2021 RubyGems Updates

Welcome to the RubyGems monthly update! As part of our efforts at Ruby Together, we publish a recap of the work that we’ve done the previous month. Read on to find out what updates were made to RubyGems and in April.

RubyGems News

This month in RubyGems, we released new versions for RubyGems v3.2.16, v3.2.17 and corresponding versions for Bundler (v2.2.16 and v2.2.17).

As part of those releases, we made the following improvements and fixes:

  • fixed an issue affecting custom sidekiq-pro gem servers, which was preventing users from upgrading their sidekiq-pro version - #4563.
  • made Bundler more secure by preventing any credentials from being logged to the screen, thus potentially preventing users from unintentionally leaking them when pasting them to a Github issue or similar situations - #4564, #4566.
  • fixed a few resolution and materialization issues in Bundler - #4556, #4562, and also improved RubyGems handling of repositories including symlinks - #2836.

In April, Rubygems gained 101 new commits, contributed by 15 authors. There were 1,591 additions and 391 deletions across 134 files. News

In April, saw several bug fixes and updates, some of which include the following:

For this month, gained 45 new commits, contributed by 9 authors. There were 424 additions and 52 deletions across 34 files.

Ruby Toolbox and API News

In April, we focused on maintenance work that involved fixing random failures in the Ruby Toolbox visual regression CI tests, dependency upgrades, fixes on a webhook reception, and renaming default git branches to main across all Ruby Toolbox repositories.

On Ruby API, we worked on importing the core Ruby type signatures using the RBS gem where the current definitions are being maintained. Our aim is for the type signatures be parsed inside Ruby API so they can be presented to the user in an easy to understand and digestible fashion.

As always, we continue to fix bugs, review and merge PR’s and reply to support tickets.
