RubyGems 1.3.4


#1

NOTE: RubyGems 1.1 and 1.2 have problems upgrading when there is no
rubygems-update installed. You will need to follow the second set of
update

Release 1.3.4 fixes some bugs and adds some features.

Bug Fixes:

  • Fixed various warnings
  • Gem::ruby_version works correctly for 1.8 branch and trunk
  • Prerelease gems now show up in gem list and can be used
  • Fixed option name for gem setup --format-executable
  • RubyGems now matches Ruby > 1.9.1 gem paths
  • Gem::RemoteFetcher#download now works for explicit Windows paths
    across
    drives. Bug #25882 by Lars C.
  • Fix typo in Gem::Requirement#parse. Bug #26000 by Mike G…

Deprecation Notices:

  • Bulk index update is no longer supported (the code currently
    remains, but not
    the tests)
  • Gem::manage_gems was removed in 1.3.3.
  • Time::today was removed in 1.3.3.

== How can I get RubyGems?

NOTE: If you have installed RubyGems using a package system you may
want to
install a new RubyGems through the same packaging system.

If you have a recent version of RubyGems (0.8.5 or later), then all
you need to do is:

$ gem update --system (you might need to be admin/root)

NOTE: RubyGems 1.1 and 1.2 have problems upgrading when there is no
rubygems-update installed. You will need to follow the second set of
update
instructions if you see “Nothing to update”.

NOTE: You may have to run the command twice if you have any previosly
installed rubygems-update gems.

If you have an older version of RubyGems installed, then you can still
do it in two steps:

$ gem install rubygems-update (again, might need to be admin/root)
$ update_rubygems (… here too)

If you don’t have any gems install, there is still the pre-gem
approach to getting software … doing it manually:

  1. DOWNLOAD FROM: http://rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=126
  2. UNPACK INTO A DIRECTORY AND CD THERE
  3. INSTALL WITH: ruby setup.rb (you may need admin/root privilege)

== To File Bugs

The RubyGems bug tracker can be found on RubyForge at:
http://rubyforge.org/tracker/?func=add&group_id=126&atid=575

When filing a bug, gem env output will be helpful in diagnosing the
issue.

If you find a bug where RubyGems crashes, please provide debug output.
You can
do that with gem --debug the_command.

== Thanks

Keep those gems coming!
