Hi,

There have been updates to rubygems and rake recently.

I'm just wondering if it is safe to update my ruby-1.9.1-p129
installation with these updates ?

Thanks for any clarification on this topic.

Chauk-Mean.

Unless the release notes state otherwise, I would assume it is safe.

I've tried to install 1.3.3 over 1.9.1-p129 without success, so I
think better instructions on this subject (RubyGems on top of 1.9.1)
will be awesome.

:-D

I am kicking the tires on ruby-1.9.1-p129-i386-mingw32 and I am quite
happy with it. I have also install the devkit.

I have successfully upgrade gem-1.3.1 to  the1.3.3 version using the
standard instructions.

gem19 update --system

I have also download gems that require c-extensions, the native
extensions are complle with the devkit.

Currently I have 4 different ruby versions co-existing in Windows XP
SP3.

ruby 1.8.6 (2008-08-11 patchlevel 287) [i386-mswin32]

Weird, I couldn't do it the last time, maybe now updates?

Yup, there is no workaround that ;-)
