Introducing Ruby 2: A Powerful Leap Forward in the World of Programming

Introducing Ruby 2

Ruby 2, the successor to Ruby 1.9, was released in 2013, and it brought significant improvements over its predecessor. The core focus of Ruby 2 was to enhance performance, improve syntax, and offer new features to developers, making their coding experience smoother and more efficient.

Performance Boost

One of the key highlights of Ruby 2 is its performance boost. With the introduction of the Global VM Lock (GVL), Ruby 2 significantly improved concurrency, enabling developers to handle multiple tasks concurrently without compromising performance.

New Features and Compatibility

Ruby 2 introduced several new features, including keyword arguments, improved garbage collection, and refinements, allowing developers to write cleaner and more maintainable code. Furthermore, Ruby 2 ensured compatibility with Ruby 1.9, making the transition smoother for developers.

Enhanced Security and Bug Fixes

Ruby 2 also addressed security vulnerabilities and fixed numerous bugs from the previous version, making it a more secure and stable choice for building applications.

  1. The first-ever computer was the size of a room! It was called the ENIAC (Electronic Numerical Integrator and Computer) and was built in 1946.
  2. The average person spends nearly seven hours a day on digital devices, from smartphones to computers, showcasing the pervasive role of IT in our daily lives.
