"Ruby 1.9.3 p0 source code is made available under a 2-clause BSD Licence and the Ruby Licence; previous versions of Ruby were released under the GPLv2 and Ruby Licence. Other changes include improved locking in multi-threaded programs, regular expression support for Unicode 6.0 and a new library io/console for simple portable access to the console. Also among the modifications are changes to Random.rand and extra String methods such as prepend and byteslice, though generally, the developers say you should be able to safely switch to Ruby 1.93 from 1.9.2."
