Bundler 1.6.3 now available - faster gem resolution

Bundler

We have updated all environments to Bundler 1.6.3.

What does this mean to you?

Faster deployments. As part of 1.6, they have rewritten the resolver to avoid recursion. The bundler team is reporting up to 10x performance improvements when resolving Gemfiles. This is in addition to our enhancements announced in March that enabled 4 concurrent jobs when fetching gems, which improved deployment times by 40-60%.

The release also adds several new features as well as bug fixes. For more details, feel free to checkout the full changelog.

A big thanks to the Bundler team for all their hard work.
