TextMate Ruby error with Mac OS X Mavericks

Are you getting a TextMate error like this after upgrading your Mac to Mavericks

/Applications/TextMate.app/Contents/SharedSupport/Support/lib/ui.rb:129: warning: assigned but unused variable - pid
/Applications/TextMate.app/Contents/SharedSupport/Support/lib/progress.rb:57: warning: shadowing outer local variable - params

from -:3:in `<main>'

To fix. Simply downgrade the version of Ruby from 2.0 to 1.8. Both versions are installed. So it is as simple as changing a symbolic link.

Open Terminal which can be found in /Applications/Utilities then run the following commands:

cd /System/Library/Frameworks/Ruby.framework/Versions
sudo rm Current
sudo ln -s 1.8 Current
