Ruby 1.9.3-p545 is released

Happy birthday, Ruby! Today, Feb. 24th, is the 21st anniversary of Ruby. In commemoration of it, Ruby 1.9.3-p545 is released.

This is the last ordinal release of Ruby 1.9.3. It means that Ruby 1.9.3 goes into the state of the security maintenance phase, and will never be released unless any critical regressions or security issues are found. This phase is planned to be maintained for 1 year. Then, maintenance of Ruby 1.9.3 will be ended at Feb. 24th, 2015.

This release includes many bugfixes. See tickets and ChangeLog for details.
