Copies of these files are now in the directory: ...\installer\local\irb-readline-4.3.2 However, tab completion only works for english keyboards. * Eliminated the installer dialog message that warned you might need to reboot your system. This was only true on older versions of Windows 98, and prevented an unattended install. For the record, an unattended install can be performed using the following command line arguments to the installer: /S /D=<install dir> 2004-07-21 12:48 curt * Changed the layout of the Windows registry entries. * Minor fixes in preparation for 182-14 * Built from Ruby 1.8.2 stable snapshot date 2004-06-29 * Fixed Bug #643 - fixed a typo in a registry entry. * Upgraded Expat to version 1.95.7 * Upgraded Ruby-odbc to version 0.993 * Upgraded DBI to 0.23 * Upgraded FXRuby to version 1.0.29 2004-05-04 22:17 curt * Log4R, as distributed in Ruby 1.8.1 had a known error that prevented it from being used in even simple cases (reported as bug #552). A fix had been posted to ruby-talk: http://blade.nagaokaut.ac.jp/cgi-bin/scat.rb/ruby/... I applied this fix and added it to our 181 patch. 2004-04-30 23:55 curt * Created a Patch-181 directory that contains the ri database and win32ole patches for this release. These patch files must be manually copied to the "stable" directory *after* the build, and *before* running NSIS. 2004-04-30 23:50 curt * Pulled the win32ole out of 181-10 as a tempoary workaround to win32ole being broken in the official 1.8.1 release. 2004-04-25 23:35 curt * Hand generated the ri database from a post 1.8.1 Ruby snapshot (because ri in the Ruby 1.8.1 release tarball was broken). * Fixed the bad paths in the *.bat files in ruby\bin. 2004-04-01 22:52 curt * I had to back out my 2004-03-30 change where I removed the installer directory. It containsn ruby_env.exe which must be executed to set enviroment vars (some day I want to get rid of this program because we should be able to do this from the NSIS script). 2004-03-31 23:00 curt * Upgraded SciTE to the latest version (1.59), which includes support for YAML highlighting and Tools menu commands for Ruby syntax checking, code profiling, and irb. 2004-03-30 23:00 curt * The Ruby Installer included and installed a copy of the ruby installer NSIS script and some (but not all) of the resources needed to build the installer. I removed this because it didn't server any purpose (it was incomplete and people can get the ruby installer off of rubyforge if they ant it). * Fix the problem where "irb.bat", "erb.bat" and "rdoc.bat" had the wrong path in them. 2004-03-29 22:34 curt * I created the file ...\installer\ChangeLog.txt (this file) to log all changes made to the Ruby Installer. Many of these changes are relevant only to those of us who are working on the installer. Changes the are relevant to the end-user of the Ruby Installer should be copied to ...\installer\stable\ReleaseNotes notice that there is *no* ".txt" extension). The content of this file is copied to ReleaseNotes.txt during the build. * You can now specify a proxy server to be used for the downloads by setting the environment variable "http_proxy", like this: set http_proxy=http://myproxy:8080/ * You skip building the RI Database by setting this environment variable: set build_ri=false Buiding the RI Database is very time consuming, and temporarily disabling this can be used to speed up the edit-build-debug cycle. * I renamed the README file to ReadMe.txt for make it easier to edit this file on windows (this *is* a windows installer, you know! :-) 2004-03-28 18:50 curt * The build process is now completely free of cygwin ans the NSIS install script has been updated to work properly with NSIS 2.0 final.

The only foolproof way to move over to the new version is to reinstall any of your extensions. You cannot reliably install on top of an existing installation. This is pretty easy if all of your extensions are RubyGems, and less so if they are not. If this is a big pain for you, then I'd wait for the final release. Curt

I've had some problems with 0.9.1 but haven't had time to verify if it's just on my machine or not ("gem unpack " fails with an "absolute path" error, also rendering rails:freeze to fail for people using Rails), but you might want to just test 0.9.1 on your Windows box first if you're intending to ship it with the installer, just in case the problem isn't specific to my environment. Thanks again, Jeff softiesonrails.com

If you need any help testing something on Windows, feel free to let me know (though I'm sure between you and Curt you've got it covered). Thanks Jeff
