IronRuby 1.0 Alpha 2


#1

Announcing the release of IronRuby 1.0 Alpha 2. You can download it on
RubyForge (http://rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=4359), I will have a tag
in SVN soon. Notable features: the inclusion of iirb.bat, igem.bat,
irails.bat, irake.bat! This is our first standalone release. Two
caveats: If you want caller to work correctly, use -X:Interpret. If you
want Rubygems to work, ensure that all of your sources end with a /. You
can check in ~/.gemrc.

Enjoy!

Excellent work guys!! Congratulations! I know this is a big step for
you.

However, I extracted IronRuby onto my desktop (E:\Users\Ben
Hall\Desktop\ironruby1a2\ironruby). Installed a gem and it ended up
outside of my ironruby directory :frowning:

E:\Users\Ben
Hall\Desktop\External\languages\ruby\ruby-1.8.6\lib\ironruby\gems\1.8\gems

That sounds like you’re getting our internal version of TOPDIR (defined
in rbconfig.rb). There’s supposed to be a transform to this file when
we export it; it sounds like that transform didn’t work. You should be
able to edit rbconfig.rb manually.
