I’m so thankful for the recent release of Ruby 2.6.0, which has allowed me to move on from 2.5.0.
When trying to start a new app on a system with Ruby 2.5.0 and 2.5.3, I’d get messages like “Your Ruby version is 2.5.3, but your Gemfile specified 2.5.0” and “Your Ruby version is 2.5.0, but
your Gemfile specified 2.5.3”. I’d check the Gemfile, my Ruby version, the .rbenv-version file, etc. But no matter how correct these configurations were, I couldn’t get things to work. I also had similar problems when trying to upgrade an existing app from Ruby 2.5.0 to 2.5.3.
In contrast, I have no such problems with upgrading to Ruby 2.6.0. I just hope that rest of the Ruby 2.6.x series doesn’t give me the same problems and force me to wait for Ruby 2.7.0.
