Ruby 1.8.4 for Microsoft Windows (Win32):

 * File: ruby-1.8.4-i386-mswin32.zip (6,950KB)
 * Version: ruby 1.8.4 (2005-12-24) [i386-mswin32]
 * Md5sum: d0ecd0984988c9740ed96b92d43d76b8
 * Download URL:
ftp://ftp.ruby-lang.org/pub/ruby/binaries/mswin32/ruby-1.8.4-i386-mswin32.zip

Other versions can be found at:

 * http://www.garbagecollect.jp/ruby/mswin32/en/downl...

These binaries are not the same as the One-Click RubyInstaller project
which is at http://rubyinstaller.rubyforge.org/wiki/wiki.pl

But it is easy enough to install extra packages using RubyGems 0.8.11.
And you can download Notepad++ 3.5 which supports Ruby syntax
highlighting at:

 * http://notepad-plus.sourceforge.net/uk/site.htm

Notepad++ uses Scintilla so it has all the features of Scite and more.

This used to be true, but start with 1.8.4, the one-click installer
*does* start with the same binary, and then layers on additional
extensions (including Rubygems).

Speaking of Ruby/Rails and Windows, what are the chances of getting a
unified Ruby/Rails One-Click Installer that has everything in both
Instant Rails and the Ruby One-Click installer rolled into one package?
It seems totally counterintuitive to me to have to install both of them
to get, for example, FreeRide and Scite and Rails. And the last time I
looked, the Ruby versions were different in the two packages.

By the way, I'm not all that much interested in a Linux version of
either of these. My preference is to have things integrated with the
native Linux package management system for any given distribution
whenever possible, and my distro -- Gentoo -- does a pretty good job
with Ruby and Rails. I think Debian is also pretty good with them,
although it's been a while since I did anything with Debian. I can't
comment on Fedora/Red Hat or SUsE -- haven't touched them recently.

That's (pretty much) what Instant Rails is, (http://instant
Rails.rubyforge.org) however, there are two caveats.

First, since Instant Rails doesn't touch you system, you don't get the
menu shortcuts and filetype associations, and you'd have to add the
...\ruby\bin directory to your system path. We've talked about
including a separate executable that you could manually invoke that
would set all these things, but we don't currently have such a thing.

Second (and this is temporary). The current release of Instant Rails
has ruby-mswin32 and *not* the one-click installer. This as done for
expediency to get IR 1.0 out the does with Ruby 1.8.4 because the
one-click installer for 1.8.4 wasn't yet ready. After Rails 1.1 is
released, we will release Instant Rails 1.1with both the new Rails
*and* the one-click installer.

Can I use these to upgrade my 1.8.4?

if I run the 'gem upgrade ruby' command it does not upgrade it to the
1.8.4 - ruby -v shows it is still 1.8.2.

I don't believe ruby itself is available as a gem. (Although that
could be pretty cool, and um odd). To upgrade ruby you will to use an
appropriate method for your OS and preferences (e.g. source, distro
packages, one click installer)
