install the latest version of 3.4.0 and sass --watch stopped work for me. Anyone know if this is a bug in the upgrade?

Hi Luis,

I can confirm that it is indeed not working and for some odd reason doesn't fail with an error, I've created an issue on the GitHub repo. For the minute run the following commands.

gem uninstall sass
gem install sass -v 3.3.14

Ahhh, thank you! I have been wondering what I've been doing wrong as I have just recently started working with Sass. I was going crazy thinking it was me haha.

Have you got the listen gem installed? If not run

gem install listen

If you do uninstall Sass and reinstall it again.
