RubyGems for Ruby 1.9


#1

Good day all!
I have problems installing and running RubyGems with Ruby 1.9.
Most of all they arise because of File.exists? method was changed to
File.exist?, but there may be other inconsistencies as well.
Has anyone successfully installed RubyGems for 1.9?
Maybe it is possible to get RubyGems from subversion repository?

I also have another question — maybe anyone knows what was the purpose
of changing the name of the aforementioned method, because at first
sight it seems to contradict Ruby english-like syntax and the Principle
of Least Surprise.

Yours sincerely,
Damian/Three-eyed Fish

Do you have a patch? Please file it in the RubyGems bug tracker.
(If you post it here, I’m sure it will get lost.)

Not recently, no. 1.9 is too much of a moving target to say any
particular piece of software is guaranteed to work with it.

Unlikely. I don’t believe any such changes have been made.

It was deprecated in 1.8.
