SQLite3-Ruby 1.2.3

Posted by Jamis on August 27, 2008 @ 09:11 AM

SQLite3-Ruby version 1.2.3 is now available. It is a maintenance release, fixing just a few things:

  • The permissions on the database.rb and translator.rb files in 1.2.2 were incorrect, resulting in broken sqlite3-ruby installations for many *nix users. This is now fixed.
  • A few more Ruby 1.9 compatibility issues were patched.
  • Some optimizations were applied to speed up iterating over result sets.

To install or upgrade:

  gem install sqlite3-ruby

Hi Jamis,

I’ve built a mingw32 version of the gem, for those of us using Luis Lavena’s new One-Click Installer. it can be had here:


Thanks for the great work!

Thanks Mike! I’ve added that gem to the rubyforge project (with your permission), so it should be accessible via “gem install” now.

Any chance of a 1.2.4 mswin32 gem being available? Trying to do a ‘gem update’ on WinXP generates an error when it gets to the Sqlite3-ruby gem:

Building native extensions. This could take a while… ERROR: While executing gem … (Gem::Installer::ExtensionBuildError) ERROR: Failed to build gem native extension.

and kills the rest of the update.

for some reason with mingw I do gem install sqlite3-ruby and it still tries to compile it from source :) -=R

Looks like some windows users could benefit from a pre-compiled mswin32 version of 1.2.4 http://www.ruby-forum.com/topic/168927#new Thanks!
