Septemeber 2022 RubyGems Updates

Welcome to the RubyGems monthly update! As part of our efforts at Ruby Central, 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 September.

RubyGems News

This month in RubyGems, we released RubyGems v3.3.22 and Bundler v2.3.22.

The following improvements and fixes are also included in these releases (see the changelog for more information):

  • added bundle-console command in Bundler’s documentation - #5901.
  • updated the Bundler metadata source code URI for accuracy in gemspec - #5896.
  • removed warning for old TLS version connections - #5928.
  • removed no longer needed fiddle hacks since RubyInstaller released patch versions to not load fiddle on boot - #5902.

In addition, this month we’ve been working on migrating Bundler’s internal resolver engine to use PubGrub, which should result in much better error messages and resolution performance. We hope to release this work soon.

We have also removed the feature of auto-sudo’ing when there are not enough permissions to perform certain operations, because it was considered harmful and hardly useful. This removal will be released with Bundler 2.4.0
