Updated Ruby version?
TechFounder (4)

Why is Rep.it still using Ruby version 2.5.5? Is there a way to update our environment to 2.7, the current version? This shouldn't be difficult for them to do?

I am still on 2.5.1: 2.5.8-compliant syntax, but you are running 2.5.1. how can I upgrade to the latest?

It'd be nice, but after looking here, it appears that it's not available for most of Ubuntu at the moment. Once it is, then it'll probably be updated :)

@theangryepicbanana so... 2021 here, but still 2.5.5

@ArtemShadovskiy yep it's coming soon. the issue we've had is that ubuntu bionic (which is what repls run on) doesn't provide anything newer than 2.5.x. we've figured out a solution that should be out sometime in the near future
