@Mastodon as a note the page says the Ruby versions is "2.5 up to 3.1" in the dependencies list, but the actual git checkout (.ruby-version) and install instructions below specify Ruby 3.0.3 instead. I assume the first is a typo, but who knows it could be the second :)

@morix @Mastodon you can run Mastodon with any version of ruby from 2.5 to 3.1 if you're using distro-provided Ruby for instance. Using rbenv (which is not mandatory), it'll try to use 3.0.3 by default

@Claire @Mastodon ah, yeah okay I get it now, first ones a range seconds the default for rbenv, okay nevermind I was just misreading the docs then.

@morix @Mastodon
Yes, I stumbled across that too. Does anyone know what applies?

@morix @Mastodon Nevermind. The update went smoothly (with Ruby 3.0.3). 😅

@beedaddy @Mastodon yeah its because I was upgrading while sleepy so I misread "2.5 up to 3.1" as meaning "the base level moves from 2.5 to 3.1" and not its actual meaning "you can use any version from 2.5 to 3.1"

@morix I guess, 3.1 is the highest supported version and 3.0.3 is the recommended version. Many admins might prefer an older, more tested and proven to be stable release.
