Earlier this week we released a patch that adds DTrace capability to Ruby 1.8.5. We chose 1.8.5 because it’s what we’ve been using in production, though 1.8.6 is the latest stable release.
It now brings me tremendous pleasure to release a patch against Ruby 1.8.6. You’ll find it in the same repository as the other patch:
- The full Ruby 1.8.6 source with DTrace probes (http://svn.joyent.com/ruby-dtrace/ruby-1.8.6)
- Diffs (http://svn.joyent.com/ruby-dtrace/patches)
The probes are the same for the 1.8.5 patch. We will be building 1.8.6 binaries shortly and you’ll find them in the same place as the 1.8.5 binaries.
The patches for 1.8.5 and 1.8.6 are released under the same license as Ruby.
