Beta version 0.9.0.9 is now available with: gem update --system --source http://onestepback.org/betagems This will be the last beta with major changes before the release of 0.9.1. = Upgrade note While require_gem was deprecated in 0.9.0, the bin stubs are still using it (oops!). To get rid of the warnings printed by rake or other bin stubs simply run 'gem pristine --all'. = What's new since 0.9.0? Lots! Many changes both big and small!

Use gem instead. * RubyGems now requires ruby 1.8.2 or greater. * gem command changes * new gem pristine command * new gem outdated command * new gem sources command * gem uninstall can uninstall multiple gems * gem install uses the cache instead of downloading * gem install returns non-zero exit code on failure * gem install can now set shebang on bin stubs (env or ruby) * gem help output now fits in 80 columns * now -w clean * many proxy installation improvements * gem cert improvements * RubyGems is now easier to use as a library * Easier programatic installs * Easier inspection of local and remote gems * extension building enhancements * error reporting enhancements (less odd exceptions) * many bugs fixed or closed (0 bugs in tracker!) * require now loads .jar files * select bug fixes: * installing from scratch fixed * gem install --force forces * installing from read-only location works * gem uninstall requires full name * gem install obeys GEM_HOME for bin scripts * RubyGems now installs on ruby 1.9 == New since beta 0.9.0.8 * fixed issue with Gem::Specification#hash for JRuby * RubyGems now installs RDoc and ri for itself * RubyGems is now tab-free * require_gem warning prints file and line information For full details, read the ChangeLog. -- Eric Hodel - firstname.lastname@example.org - http://blog.segment7.net I LIT YOUR GEM ON FIRE!

Here's an incomplete summary: Out of curiosity, what is the rationale behind your version numbering? (I've never seen a system where deprecations, changes the API, new features, and more warranted so tiny a numeric bump. Not a criticism, just a curiosity.)

(Currently, RubyGems API is so unfriendly to anybody other than RubyGems that people run the gem command in a subshell. When the library is that unfriendly, I think its OK to change APIs and have weird versions.) -- Eric Hodel - firstname.lastname@example.org - http://blog.segment7.net I LIT YOUR GEM ON FIRE!
