View Why you should upgrade Celluloid ASAP to 0.17.2 (or downgrade to 0.16.0).md

Long story short, Celluloid versions 0.17+ have a memory leak.

The Reason behind this is that completed Celluloid threads are never cleaned up.

We have discovered that our Sidekiq process is leaking memory when we have a lot of tasks that were failed because of exceptions. Unfortunately, having a lot of failed tasks is specific for our application — we do have a lot of small queued jobs to work with social network APIs and other external services.

You can reproduce the problem with this:

RubySpec is dead, long live RubySpec!
View gist:11dbcf0ee7f2c08450ea

Last night, Brian Shirai unilaterally "ended" the RubySpec project, a sub-project of Rubinius (the alternative Ruby implementation which Brian was paid to work on full-time from 2007 to 2013). The blog post describing his reasons for "ending" the project led to a big discussion on Hacker News.

When a single, competing Ruby implementation tells that you its test suite is the One True Way, you should be skeptical. Charles Nutter, Ruby core committer and JRuby head honcho, spent a lot of time last night on Twitter talking to people about what this decision means. He's probably too busy and certainly too nice of a guy to write about what is a political issue in the Ruby community, so I'm going to do it on behalf of all the new or intermediate Rubyists out there that are confused by Brian's decision and what it me

Are you using PostgreSQL and don't want to make your app run as PostgreSQL super user, then add this custom rake task to your `lib/tasks` folder and be happy.
