Important: Ruby 1.8.7 out of support

Added by Jan Niggemann ( team member) over 2 years ago

The maintainers of the ruby language retired ruby 1.8.7 on June 30 2013.

What does that mean for me as a redmine administrator?

If you're using ruby 1.8.7 in your stack, please update to a more recent version. The current versions of redmine will continue to funtion (2.3.1 and 2.2.4 at the time of writing) but future versions may drop support for ruby 1.8.7 (#14371).

Some distributions will nevertheless provide security fixes backported from upstream.
