What happened this week on the mruby front?
The most dramatic change this week is from my perspective the type change of mrb_sym from an integer pointer to a short. It is claimed that this change reduces the memory consumption by 10KB.
Matz added an Integer#step implementation.
A bug was reported by Masaki Muranaka. This one shows a difference between mruby and MRI. The code ” 1 2 ” + 3 evaluates to nil instead of raising an exception. This was fixed.
A SEGV while using Exception.new.inspect was fixed by Tomoyuki Sahara.
A warning fix from Shannen Saez broke the build environment of mingw under Windows 7. Shannen Saez fixed that with a second commit.
Tomoyuki Sahara fixed an issue with NUL characters in a String.
