July 2018 Bundler Update

by Stephanie Morillo on

Welcome to the July Bundler update!

We released Bundler 1.16.3 on July 17. The new release includes support for the upcoming Ruby 2.6, and fixes several bugs including symlink handling, temporary file handling, and improving error messages around filesystem access and installation errors.

Since we announced the new RFC process last month, we’ve seen new comments and new proposals in the Bundler RFC repo. If you’re interested in ideas for the future of Bundler, definitely take a look. Keep the comments and suggestions coming!

In other exciting news, we added a new contributor to the core team. Welcome David Rodríguez to Bundler! Probably best known for his work on the byebug debugger gem, David was the driver behind updating gem templates to check in lockfiles, as well as work around ensuring that Bundler 2 will work on existing applications when it is released.

This month, Bundler gained 63 new commits, contributed by 8 authors. There were 1,442 additions and 72 deletions across 33 files.
