Rubygems-update 1.5.2 Released

rubygems-update version 1.5.2 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)

NOTE: RubyGems 1.5.0 and 1.5.1 have a broken gem update --system.

To upgrade you’ll need to use the manual upgrade recipe. Using sudo/su

$ gem install rubygems-update
$ update_rubygems

If you are upgrading from versions of RubyGems earlier than 1.5.0 run:

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

See UPGRADING.rdoc for more details and alternative instructions.

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

For more details and other options, see:

ruby setup.rb --help


1.5.2 / 2011-02-10
