Important: Ruby 1.8.7 out of support
The maintainers of the ruby language retired ruby 1.8.7 on June 30 2013. http://www.ruby-lang.org/en/news/2013/06/30/we-retire-1-8-7/
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).
Overview of ruby-packages in some distributions¶
Some distributions will nevertheless provide security fixes backported from upstream.
Please check if this applies to your distribution.
