"expect errors"

"expect errors" when compiling Ruby with clang

Compiled Ruby with clang and the compile output contained a warning to "expect errors". Has anyone experienced these alleged errors?

One member or our audience said that they had compiled the same way and not experienced any problems.


Update your rack gem

Nasty remote execution vulnerability.


parallel_tests prepare task does not drop tables

If you're using parallel_tests, be aware that, unlike rake db:test:prepare, the rake parallel:prepare task does not purge the databases before it loads the schema. You'll only notice this if you're dropping tables – the dropped tables will stay forever in the parallel databases.

We have a fork that works properly. (Pull request coming soon.)
