It’s the underlying language runtime that the marketplaces run on. For those that didn’t know we use the Ruby on Rails framework to run the marketplaces. Ruby is the programming language/runtime, and rails is the code you add on top to build web application in.

The version of Ruby and Rails we use is starting to get really out of date and so we need to upgrade to kind of “keep up” with feature upgrades and bug-fixes and the like.

There’s a big difference between Ruby 1.8 and 1.9, so it’s a fairly complicated upgrade with the risk of introducing subtle bugs. We’ve been testing a lot in the Melbourne office, but we just thought it was risky enough to give you guys some fair warning.

Nice info for hackers :p

@aaranmcguire, RoR is object oriented, just like PHP frameworks (at least some of them), you can count classes/modules for PHP frameworks in marketplace on fingers of one hand, not to mention Ruby.

@mudi, nothing that everyone already knows :)

I am ready… Thanks… :) But what is ruby 1.8.7 or ruby 1.9.2 exactly… ? Sounds like software or something…. ! :confused:
If you know js/java that not that hard to learn Ruby& Rails, fact is you can do it very easily online and get certified, upgrading to a new version is always a risky move. Any way interesting to learn Ruby& Rails which frankly companies always looking for good Ruby& Rails nerds’ you can start your way here. http://tryruby.org/levels/1/challenges/0 .

p.s.

John don’t worry your position at Envato is safe :P

Probably a stupid question but what does a programming language have to do with a network of websites?
