[ANN] One-Click Ruby Installer 186-26 Release Candidate 1

This updates Ruby to 1.8.6 patch level 111 (lots
of bug fixes since 1.8.6 was released). It also
updates most of the included extensions to their
latest versions (see the change log).

The final release won’t happen until after
RubyGems 0.9.5 is released (which should be any
day now) because we want the latest RubyGems
version to be included. However, we’re putting out
this release candidate now to give you a chance to
try out everything else while we wait!

Great effort Curt, and highly valued!

Especially since I had to go without One-Click recently, as you know.
:slight_smile:
It was a reminder of the continual work put in by many to keep this
community moving forward. Thanks to all!

Hopefully it’s just me, but after installing this, my system path
variable was overwritten to just the ruby bin path.

Thanks,

Did you have a previous One-Click-Installation before?

Ruby Version 1.8.6

Thanks,

Gordon

Also, how long was your previous path (we’ve had problems with paths >
256 chars).

In my case, my path was totally wiped out!!!

And yes, my path was longer than 256.

I had no problem with previous releases of Ruby, including Ruby 186
patch level 000.

I had to uninstall and reinstall (for other reasons than installation
problems) and had no problems with the path until the 3rd
installation.

Hi Curt,

Hate to bug you, but do you have any timeline for making the same
changes to InstantRails? I need a couple of fixes to make Streamlined
work better w/MSSQL.

Thanks for your hard work

Yes, that will be next when this OCI release goes final. But you don’t
have to wait, you can drop this ruby release into IR’s ruby
subdirectory (you’d have to reinstall any gems).

Curt

While I can’t be certain, I’d say it’s very possible it was longer
than 256 chars.

Thanks,

Gordon

Concerning reinstalling the gems… I just had to do this. Why is this
necessary? Or more speficically: Why does the installer not allow
overwriting? This costs me like an hour to reinstall Ruby on Windows
every
time I do it. The only other app that needs over an over is the Adobe
suite.
