Rubygems-update 1.3.6 Released

rubygems-update version 1.3.6 has been released!

RubyGems is a package management framework for Ruby.

This gem is an update for the RubyGems software. You must have an
installation of RubyGems before this update can be applied.

See Gem for information on RubyGems (or ri Gem)

To upgrade to the latest RubyGems, run:

$ gem update --system # you might need to be an administrator or root

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

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 RubyGems 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

For more details and other options, see:

ruby setup.rb --help

Changes:

1.3.6 / 2010-02-17

NOTE:

http://rubygems.org is now the default source for downloading gems.

You may have sources set via ~/.gemrc, so you should replace
http://gems.rubyforge.org with http://rubygems.org

http://gems.rubyforge.org will continue to work for the forseeable
future.

New features:

  • gem commands
    • Added gem push and gem owner for interacting with
      modern/Gemcutter
      sources

    • gem fetch now supports --prerelease.
    • gem server now supports --bind. Patch #27357 by Bruno M…

      force rebuilding. Patch #25982 by Akinori MUSHA.
  • Captial letters are now allowed in prerelease versions.

Bug fixes:

  • Development deps are no longer added to rubygems-update gem so older
    versions can update sucessfully.
  • Installer bugs:
    • Prerelease gems can now depend on non-prerelease gems.
    • Development dependencies are ignored unless explicitly needed. Bug
      #27608
      by Roger P…
  • gem commands
    • gem which now fails if no paths were found. Adapted patch #27681
      by
      Caio C…
    • gem server no longer has invalid markup. Bug #27045 by Eric
      Young.
    • gem list and friends show both prerelease and regular gems when
      –prerelease --all is given
  • Gem::Format no longer crashes on empty files. Bug #27292 by Ian
    Ragsdale.
  • Gem::GemPathSearcher handles nil require_paths. Patch #27334 by Roger
    Pack.
  • Gem::RemoteFetcher no longer copies the file if it is where we want
    it.
    Patch #27409 by Jakub Šťastný.

Deprecation Notices:

  • lib/rubygems/timer.rb has been removed.
  • Gem::Dependency#version_requirements is deprecated and will be removed
    on or
    after August 2010.
  • Bulk index update is no longer supported.
  • Gem::manage_gems was removed in 1.3.3.
  • Time::today was removed in 1.3.3.

Hm, I just upgraded but it seems that RubyGems still thinks it’s 1.3.5.
Here’s the full installation output, followed by gem env and gem

I just updated RubyGems again, and now it shows the correct version. I’m
not sure what happened, but it works.

Interesting, ok. I didn’t try to reproduce it, but I’ll ignore it
unless somebody else has the same problem.
