RubyInstaller versions 2.7.2-1, 2.6.6-2 and 2.5.8-2 are released. These are maintenance releases with bug and security fixes.

This release series fixes some recent issues with MSYS2 package installation and MSYS2 updates. It adds RI documentation as optional install component, which is well integrated into irb on Ruby-2.7 and it improves the ridk use command. Moreover there are some updates to bundled libraries and to the TLS CA list.

See ruby-2.7.2 release notes as well as the RubyInstaller CHANGELOG files for RubyInstaller-2.5.8-2, RubyInstaller-2.6.6-2 and RubyInstaller-2.7.2-1.

Unfortunately at the time of writing the primary MSYS2 package server is down. Alternative hosts are automatically selected by pacman, but only after a significant delay. To avoid this delay, you might comment that host out by using the following command and inspect the remaining hosts be the second command:

ridk exec sh -c "sed -e '/ s/Serv/#Serv/' -i /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist.*"
ridk exec sh -c "cat /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist.*"

As usual all binaries are available in the Download section!
