Security fix for YAML library. New Ruby stacks updated.

A new version of YAML library that fixes a security vulnerability has been recently released. This library is widely used for Ruby. The vulnerability is patched in libyaml version 0.1.5.

In case you are not familiar with the Bitnami Ruby stack, it provides a complete development environment for Ruby on Rails that can be deployed in one click. In addition to the base Ruby runtime and libraries, the stack includes most popular gems for building Rails applications: NGinx, Passenger, Redis, Nokogiri, Rake, RMagick, Thin, MySQL, PostgreSQL and more.

We released a new version of Ruby Stack installers for all platforms, virtual machines and Amazon EC2 and Azure cloud images for all supported versions:

  • Ruby Stack 1.9.3, with Ruby 1.9.3-p484 and Rails 3.2.16
  • Ruby Stack 2.0.0, with Ruby 2.0.0-p353 and Rails 4.0.2
  • Ruby Stack 2.1.0, with Ruby 2.1.0 and Rails 4.0.2
