|Summary||0007201: Ruby 3.0: when is Kali making the leap?|
I manage ongoing Metasploit Framework development at Rapid7 and was curious if y'all have a date in mind for when Kali shifts to Ruby 3.0? We'd like to make sure Metasploit Framework is ready for that switch so that everything still works as-expected for MSF users in Kali.
Certainly feel free to reach out to me directly if this isn't a publicized item.
Thanks very much!
Kali depends on Debian Testing for the most common packages, including Ruby.
For ruby 3 I don't know when the update will be, it depends on the Debian ruby Team. As far as I know, nothing is planned for the moment. As soon as I have more precise information, I will give it to you.
FYI if metasploit is not totally ready for Ruby 3 when it arrives in Debian Testing, we can block for few weeks the new Ruby version so that the new version does not migrate in kali-rolling.
TYVM for your detailed response, @sbrun, very helpful! We'll continue to work on our shift to Ruby 3, would love to keep in contact on this to make sure it's a smooth path for Kali's Metasploit users.
Thanks again and have a great rest of your week!
The switch to Ruby 3 may happen in August or later. I'm sorry for not being able to be more precise.
Awesome, really appreciate this update, @sbrun. We'll continue plugging away on our shift to Ruby 3!
