The 'timeout' error leads me to believe that gem is having difficulty
connecting to the gem repository... Maybe because many people are trying
to hit
it simultaneously due to the new release?  That's just a guess, can
anyone else
confirm this?

It's slow here, but's working. Perhaps a firewall issue, should this
remain the case forever?
