Other improvements in Ruby 2.2 include better memory management, support for Unicode 7.0 and the addition of several new methods, including Enumerable#slice_after, Enumerable#slice_when, Float#next_float, Float#prev_float, File.birthtime, File#birthtime and String#unicode_normalize. The latest version of the language also ended support for the mathn library and updated six other libraries (Psych 2.0.8, Rake 10.4.2, RDoc 4.2.0, RubyGems 2.4.5, test-unit 3.0.8 and minitest 5.4.3).
