Afaik, debian and its derivative will use 1.8 for several years.
However, they provide 1.9 as well. the naming might be confusing
though. The "nosuffix" ruby is 1.8, and the "1.9.1" suffix is for
1.9.x . And it's unlikely they will change this as this would break
running system without any benefit.
If I'm not mistaken :
* With 1.9 :
Debian (Ubuntu/Mint) (package ruby1.9.1)
* Without 1.9
RHEL 4,5,6 (CentOS, Scientific)
I dont use other distributions.
So yes, just require 1.9, it's the present. Imo, there is no reason to
begin a new big project with 1.8 in mind.
