Thanks for the quick response, Dave.  I appreciate it -- it saved us
tons of time with some potential debugging/environment setups.  I'll let
anyone know if we run into any errors while testing the new win32 gem
upon its release as well.

Sorry, I didn't really fully answer your question. There are no major
API changes between the two versions you are using so if your app is
working with 0.10.9 then it should work with 0.11.2. There are however
differences in the index file format so you can't copy the index
across and 0.10.9 has a lot more bugs than 0.11.2. But for the short
term you should be fine.
