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! ~~~~ JD http://blog.jredville.com

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 :( 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.
