Ruby upgraded to 1.8.5

Ruby has been upgraded from version 1.8.2 to 1.8.5. A summary of changes can be found at


According to DreamHost Imagemagick is currently being upgraded to version 6.2.4 and Subversion is being upgraded to version 1.3.2.

While Ruby has been upgraded on some servers, they are deploying the new version on a slow rate, since the new version might break the breakpoint feature in Rails. Take a look a t the call_stack gem for a workaround.
