…::Client:: CHARSET MAP[' latin1'] = Encoding:: UTF 8

This will solve your problems in Ruby but will not solve your problems in the database: MySQL will still sort and compare strings thinking they are latin1 and thus do so incorrectly. Here's an example:

CREATE TABLE names_latin1 ( name varchar ( 32 ) character SET latin1 ) ; INSERT INTO names_latin1 VALUES ( 'Martin Strauße' ) ; INSERT INTO names_latin1 VALUES ( 'Martin Straure' ) ; INSERT …

Fixed some issues with printing UTF-8 log files on Heroku.

Added a new flag --ignore-app-not-running to passenger-config restart-app . When this flag is given, passenger-config restart-app will exit successfully when the specified application is not running, instead of exiting with an error.

Installing or upgrading to 4.0.41 OS X Debian Ubuntu Heroku Ruby gem Tarball

…passenger-install-nginx-module only works on terminals that support UTF-8 and that have a UTF-8 capable font. To cater to users who cannot meet these requirements (e.g. PuTTY users using any of the default Windows fonts), it is now possible to switch the menu to a plain text mode by pressing ‘!'. Fixes issue # 1066 .

Fixed printing UTF-8 characters in log files in Phusion Passenger Standalone.

It is now possible to dump live backtraces of Python apps through the …

The first two bugs are important. Those using pt-archiver -bulk-insert with UTF-8 data should definitely upgrade. Those using pt-heartbeat -utc should also definitely upgrade.

Users may note the revival of the -show-all option in pt-query-digest. This had been removed in 2.2.1, but resulted in too much output in certain cases.

A new -recursion-method was added to pt-table-checksum: cluster. This method attempts to auto-discover cluster nodes, alleviating the need to specify cluster node DSNs…

The default output encoding for RDoc is now UTF-8. Previously RDoc used the default external encoding which was determined from your locale. Issue #106 by Justin Baker.

RDoc:: RI::Store is now RDoc::Store so ri data generated by RDoc 4 cannot be read by earlier versions of RDoc. RDoc:: RI::Store exists as an alias of RDoc::Store so ri data from older versions can still be read. RDoc:: RI::Store will be removed in RDoc 5.

Tests that create RDoc:: CodeObjects on …

The default encoding for ruby scripts is now UTF-8 [#6679]. Some people report that it affects existing programs, such as some benchmark programs becoming very slow [ ruby-dev:46547].

Iconv was removed, which had already been deprecated when M17N was introduced in ruby 1.9. Use String#encode, etc. instead.

There is ABI breakage [ruby-core:48984]. We think that normal users can/should just reinstall extension libraries. You should be aware: DO NOT COPY .so OR .bundle FILES …
