2.2.2 / 2014-02-05

Bug fixes:

  • Fixed ruby tests when BASERUBY is not set. Patch for #778 by Nobuyoshi Nakada.
  • Removed double requests in RemoteFetcher#cache_update_path to improve remote install speed. Pull request #772 by Charlie Somerville.
  • The mkmf.log is now placed next to gem_make.out when building extensions.
  • gem install -g --local no longer accesses the network. Bug #776 by Jeremy Evans.
  • RubyGems now correctly handles URL passwords with encoded characters. Pull request #781 by Brian Fletcher.
  • RubyGems now correctly escapes URL characters. Pull request #788 by Brian Fletcher.

2.2.1 / 2014-01-06

Bug fixes:

  • Platforms in the Gemfile.lock GEM section are now handled correctly. Bug #767 by Diego Viola.
  • RubyGems now displays which gem couldn’t be uninstalled from the home directory. Pull request #757 by Michal Papis.
  • Removed unused method Gem::Resolver#find_conflict_state. Pull request #759 by Smit Shah.
  • Fixed installing gems from local files without dependencies. Issue #760 by Arash Mousavi, pull request #764 by Tim Moore.
  • Removed TODO about syntax that works in Ruby 1.8.7. Pull request #765 by Benjamin Fleischer.
  • Switched Gem.ruby_api_version to use RbConfig::CONFIG[‘ruby_version’] which has the same value but is overridable by packagers through –with-ruby-version= when configuring ruby. Bug #770 by Jeremy Evans.
  • RubyGems now prefers the bundler API for gem install to reduce HTTP requests. (This change was intended for RubyGems 2.2.0 but was missed.) This should address bug #762 by Dan Peterson and bug #766 by mipearson.
  • Added Gem::BasicSpecification#source_paths so documentation or analysis tools can work properly as require_paths no longer returns extension source directories. Bug #758 Vít Ondruch.

2.2.0 / 2013-12-26

Special thanks to Vít Ondruch and Michal Papis for testing and finding bugs in RubyGems as it was prepared for the 2.2.0 release.

Enhancements:

  • RubyGems can check for gem dependencies files (gem.deps.rb or Gemfile) when rubygems executables are started and uses the found dependencies. This means rake will work similar to bundle exec rake. To enable this set the RUBYGEMS_GEMDEPS environment variable to the location of your dependencies file.

    See Gem::use_gemdeps for further details.

  • A RubyGems directory may now be shared amongst multiple ruby versions. Upon activation RubyGems will automatically compile missing extensions for the current platform when the built objects are missing. Issue #596 by Michal Papis

    By default different platforms do not share gem install locations so this must be configured by setting GEM_HOME to a common directory. Some gems use fixed paths for requiring extensions and are not compatible with sharing gem directories.

    The default sharing location may be configured by RubyGems packagers through Gem.default_ext_dir_for. Pull Request #744 by Vít Ondruch.

  • RubyGems checks the ‘allowed_push_host’ metadata value when pushing a gem to prevent an accidental push to a public repository (such as rubygems.org). If you have private gems you should set this value in your gem specification metadata. Pull request #603 by Seamus Abshere.
  • gem list now shows results for multiple arguments. Pull request #604 by Zach Rabinovich.
  • gem pristine --extensions will restore only gems with extensions. Issue #619 by Postmodern.
  • Gem::Specification#files is now sorted. Pull request #612 by Justin George.
  • For gem list and friends, “LOCAL” and “REMOTE” headers are omitted if only local or remote gem information is requested with –quiet. Pull request #615 by Michal Papis.
  • Added Gem::Specification#full_require_paths which is like require_paths, but returns a fully-qualified results. Pull request #632 by Vít Ondruch.
  • RubyGems now looks for the https_proxy environment variable for https:// sources. RubyGems will fall back to http_proxy if there is no https_proxy. Issue #610 by mkristian.
  • RubyGems now creates directories in .gem files. Issue #631 by marksolaris.
  • RubyGems raises an exception when a specification includes its gem. Issue #623 by notEthan.
  • RubyGems now displays relevant release note information when updating RubyGems. Issue #647 by Trevor Wennblom.
  • Deprecated Gem::Installer::ExtensionBuildError in favor of Gem::Ext::BuildError. The old constant is an alias for the new constant.
  • When extensions are built the gem_make.out file is always written now, even on success. This will help with debugging bad builds that report success.
  • If a specification fails to validate RubyGems shows a link to the specification reference guide. Issue #656 by Markus Heiler.
  • When using gem install -g, RubyGems now detects the presence of an Isolate, Gemfile or gem.deps.rb file.
  • Added Gem::StubSpecification#stubbed? to help determine if a user should run gem pristine to speed up gem loading. Pull request #694 and #701 by Jon Leighton.
  • RubyGems now warns when a gem has a pessimistic version dependency that may be too strict.
  • RubyGems now warns when a gem has an open-ended dependency.
  • RubyGems now raises an exception when a dependency for a gem is defined twice.
  • Marked the license specification attribute as recommended. Pull request #713 by Benjamin Fleischer.
  • RubyGems uses io/console instead of stty when available. Pull request #740 by Nobuyoshi Nakada
  • Relaxed Gem.ruby tests for platforms that override where ruby lives. Pull Request #755 by strzibny.

  • RubyGems now returns an error status when any file given to gem which cannot be found. Ruby bug #9004 by Eugene Vilensky.
  • Fixed command escaping when building rake extensions. Pull request #721 by Dmitry Ratnikov.
  • Fixed uninstallation of gems when GEM_HOME is a relative directory. Issue #708 by Ryan Davis.
  • Default gems are now ignored by Gem::Validator#alien. Issue #717 by David Bahar.
  • Fixed typos in RubyGems. Pull requests #723, #725, #731 by Akira Matsuda, pull request #736 by Leo Gallucci, pull request #746 by DV Suresh.
  • RubyGems now holds exclusive locks on cached gem files to prevent incorrect updates. Pull Request #737 by Smit Shah
  • Improved speed of gem install --ignore-dependencies. Patch by Terence Lee.

2.1.11 / 2013-11-12

Bug fixes:

  • Gem::Specification::remove_spec no longer checks for existence of the spec to be removed. Issue #698 by Tiago Macedo.
  • Restored wildcard handling when installing gems. Issue #697 by Chuck Remes.

Enhancements:

  • RubyGems uses a new dependency resolver for gem installation which works similar to the bundler resolver. The new resolver can resolve conflicts the previous resolver could not and offers improved diagnostics when conflicts are discovered.

  • RubyGems now has improved platform matching for the ARM architecture. Gems built with a CPU of “arm” will match any specific ARM CPU. See gem help platform for further details. Fixes #532 by Kim Burgestrand.
  • The –version option now accepts compound requirements the same as in a gem dependency. The following invocation will install rails between 4.0.0.beta and 4.2:

    gem install rails -v ‘>= 4.0.0.beta, < 4.2’

    Fixes #531 by Gary S. Weaver

2.0.0 / 2013-02-24

RubyGems 2.0 includes several new features and many breaking changes. Some of these changes will cause existing software to break. These changes are a result of improvements to the internals of RubyGems that make it more maintainable and improve APIs for RubyGems users.

If you are using bundler be sure to install a 1.3.0.prerelease version or newer. Older versions of bundler will not work with RubyGems 2.0.

Changes since RubyGems 1.8.25 (including past pre-releases):

Breaking changes:

  • Deprecated Gem.unresolved_deps in favor of Gem::Specification.unresolved_deps
  • Merged Gem::Builder into Gem::Package. Use Gem::Package.build(spec) instead of Gem::Builder.new(spec).build
  • Merged Gem::Format into Gem::Package. Use Gem::Package.new instead of Gem::Format.from_file_by_path
  • Moved Gem::OldFormat to Gem::Package::Old. Gem::Package will automatically detect old gems for you, so there is no need to refer to it.
  • Removed Gem::DocManager, replaced by Gem::RDoc and done_installing hook
  • Removed Gem::Package::TarInput in favor of Gem::Package
  • Removed Gem::Package::TarOutput in favor of Gem::Package
  • Removed Gem::RemoteFetcher#open_uri_or_path. (steveklabnik)
  • Removed Gem::SSL in favor of using OpenSSL directly
  • Removed Gem.loaded_path
  • Removed RSS generation from the gem indexer
  • Removed benchmark option from .gemrc
  • Removed broken YAML gemspec support in gem build
  • Removed support for Ruby 1.9.1
  • Removed many deprecated methods

Enhancements:

  • Improved support for default gems shipping with ruby 2.0.0+
  • A gem can have arbitrary metadata through Gem::Specification#metadata
  • gem search now defaults to –remote and is anchored like gem list. Fixes #166
  • Added –document to replace –rdoc and –ri. Use –no-document to disable documentation, –document=rdoc to only generate rdoc.
  • Only ri-format documentation is generated by default.
  • gem server uses RDoc::Servlet from RDoc 4.0 to generate HTML documentation.
  • Add ability to install gems directly from a compatible gemdep file (Gemfile, Isolate, gem.deps.rb) gem install --file path
  • Add ability to load gem activation information from a gemdeps file (Gemfile, Isolate, gem.deps.rb). Set RUBYGEMS_GEMDEPS=path to have it loaded. Use - as the path to autodetect (current and parent directories are searched).
  • Added gem check --doctor to clean up after failed uninstallation. Bug #419 by Erik Hollensbe
  • RubyGems no longer defaults to uninstalling gems if a dependency would be broken. Now you must manually say “yes”. Pull Request #406 by Shannon Skipper.
  • Gem::DependencyInstaller now passes build_args down to the installer. Pull Request #412 by Sam Rawlins.
  • Added a cmake builder. Pull request #265 by Allan Espinosa.
  • Removed rubyforge page from gem list output
  • Added –only-executables option to gem pristine. Fixes #326
  • Added -I flag for ‘gem query’ to exclude installed items

1.8.23 / 2012-04-19

This release increases the security used when RubyGems is talking to an https server. If you use a custom RubyGems server over SSL, this release will cause RubyGems to no longer connect unless your SSL cert is globally valid.

You can configure SSL certificate usage in RubyGems through the :ssl_ca_cert and :ssl_verify_mode options in ~/.gemrc and /etc/gemrc. The recommended way is to set :ssl_ca_cert to the CA certificate for your server or a certificate bundle containing your CA certification.

You may also set :ssl_verify_mode to 0 to completely disable SSL certificate checks, but this is not recommended.

Security fixes: * Disallow redirects from https to http * Turn on verification of server SSL certs

1.8.0 / 2011-04-34

This release focused on properly encapsulating functionality. Most of this work focused on moving functionality out of Gem::SourceIndex and Gem::GemPathSearcher into Gem::Specification where it belongs.

After installing RubyGems 1.8.0 you will see deprecations when loading your existing gems. Run gem pristine --all --no-extensions to regenerate your gem specifications safely.

Currently RubyGems does not save the build arguments used to build gems with extensions. You will need to run gem pristine gem_with_extension -- --build-arg to regenerate a gem with an extension where it requires special build arguments.

Deprecations:

  • DependencyList.from_source_index deprecated the source_index argument.
  • Deprecated Dependency.new(/regex/).
  • Deprecated Gem.searcher.
  • Deprecated Gem.source_index and Gem.available?
  • Deprecated Gem: activate_dep, activate_spec, activate, report_activate_error, and required_location.
  • Deprecated Gem::all_partials
  • Deprecated Gem::cache_dir
  • Deprecated Gem::cache_gem
  • Deprecated Gem::default_system_source_cache_dir

  • Deprecated Specification.cache_gem
  • Deprecated Specification.installation_path
  • Deprecated Specification.loaded, loaded?, and loaded=
  • Deprecated all of Gem::SourceIndex.
  • Deprecated all of Gem::GemPathSearcher.
  • Deprecated Gem::Specification#default_executable.

Enhancements:

  • Gem::SourceIndex functionality has been moved to Gem::Specification. Gem::SourceIndex is completely disconnected from Gem::Specification
  • Refactored GemPathSearcher entirely out. RIPMF
  • Added CommandManager#unregister_command
  • Added Dependency#matching_specs + to_specs.
  • Added Dependency#to_spec

  • Added GemCommand.reset to reinitialize the singleton
  • Added Specification#activate.
  • Added Specification#activated, activated=, and activated?

  • Specification#validate now ensures that authors is not empty.
  • TestCase.util_setup_spec_fetcher no longer returns a SourceIndex.

1.4.0 / 2010-12-30

NOTE: In order to better maintain rubygems and to get it in sync with the world (eg, 1.9’s 1.3.7 is different from our 1.3.7), rubygems is switching to a 4-6 week release schedule. This release is the precursor to that process and as such may be a bit on the wild side! You have been warned!

1.2.0 / 2008-06-21

Features:

  • RubyGems no longer performs bulk updates and instead only fetches the gemspec files it needs.

0.9.4 / 2007-05-23

If you are experiencing problems with the source index (e.g. strange “No Method” errors), or problems with zlib (e.g. “Buffer Error” message), we recommend upgrading to RubyGems 0.9.4.

Bug fixes:

  • Several people have been experiencing problems with no method errors on the source index cache. The source index cache is now a bit more self healing. Furthermore, if the source index cache is irreparable, then it is automatically dropped and reloaded.
  • The source cache files may now be dropped with the “gem sources –clear-all” command. (This command may require root is the system source cache is in a root protected area).
  • Several sub-commands were accidentally dropped from the “gem” command. These commands have been restored.

0.9.3 / 2007-05-10

Bug fixes:

The ZLib library on Windows will occasionally complains about a buffer error when unpacking gems. The Gems software has a workaround for that problem, but the workaround was only enabled for versions of ZLib 1.2.1 or earlier. We have received several reports of the error occurring with ZLib 1.2.3, so we have permanently enabled the work around on all versions.

0.9.2 / 2007-02-05

Bug fixes:

  • The “unpack” command now works properly.
  • User name and password are now passed properly to the authenticating proxy when downloading gems.

0.9.1 / 2007-01-16

See git log

0.9.0 / 2006-06-28

Finally, the much anticipated RubyGems version 0.9.0 is now available. This release includes a number of new features and bug fixes. The number one change is that we can now download the gem index incrementally. This will greatly speed up the gem command when only a few gems are out of date.

Enhancements:

  • The gem index is now downloaded incrementally, only updating entries that are out of date. If more than 50 entries are out of date, we revert back to a bulk download.
  • Several patches related to allowing RubyGems to work with authenticating proxies (from Danie Roux and Anatol Pomozov). Just put the user and password in the proxy URL (e.g. -p http://user:password@proxy.address.com:8080) or use the HTTP_PROXY_USER and HTTP_PROXY_PASS environment variables.
  • The gem unpack command can now accept a file path rather than just a install gem name.
  • Both RI and RDOC documents are now generated by default.
  • A gemri command is included to read gem RI docs (only needed for Ruby 1.8.4 or earlier).
  • Version 0.0.0 is now a valid gem version.
  • Better detection of missing SSL functionality.
  • SSL is not required if the security policy does not require signature checking.
  • Rake built extensions are now supported (Tilman Sauerbeck).
  • Several autorequire bug fixes.
  • –traceback is now an alias for –backtrace (I can never remember which one it is).
  • SAFE=1 compatibility fixes.
  • .rbw is now a supported suffix for RubyGem’s custom require.
  • Several Ruby 1.9 compatibility fixes (Eric Hodel).

Bug fixes:

  • Added dashes to gemspecs generated in Ruby 1.8.3. This solves some cross-Ruby version compatibility issues.
  • Fixed bug where the wrong executables could be uninstalled (Eric Hodel).
  • Fixed bug where gem unpack occasionally unpacked the wrong gem.
  • Fixed bug where a fatal error occurred when permissions on .gemrc were too restrictive (reported by Luca Pireddu).
  • Fixed prefix handling for native expressions (patch by Aaron Patterson).
  • Fixed several Upgrade => Update typos.

0.8.11 / 2005-07-13

  • -y is a synonym for –include-dependencies.
  • Better handling of errors in the top level rescue clause.
  • Package list command (e.g. gem inspect GEM).
  • .gemrc now allows cvsrc-like options to set defaults per subcommand.
  • The autorequire gem spec field will now accept a list.
  • Substituted Time for Date in specs, increasing performance dramatically.
  • Fixed reported bug of gem directories ending in “-“ (reported by Erik Hatcher).
  • Fixed but in installer that caused dependency installation to not work.
  • Added Paul Duncan’s gem signing patch.
  • Added Mark Hubbart’s Framework patch (for better integration with OS X).
  • Added David Glasser’s install-from-mirror patch.
  • Additional internal structural cleanup and test reorganization.

0.8.10 / 2005-03-27

  • In multi-user environments, it is common to supply multiple versions of gems (for example Rails), allowing individual users to select the version of the gem they desire. This allows a user to be insulated from updates to that gem. RubyGems 0.8.10 fixes a problem where gems could occasionally become confused about the current versions of libraries selected by the user.
  • The other annoying bug is that if there are any existing rubygems-update gems installed, then the “gem update –system” command will download a new update, but install the latest update prior to the download.

0.8.9

Never released

0.8.8 / 2005-03-14

  • Moved the master definition of class Requirement back under version. Kept the body of Requirement under Gem.

0.8.7 / 2005-03-14

Even though it has only been a few weeks since that last release, there are quite a number of new features in 0.8.7. A complete list of new features will be given below, but here is a summary of the hot items.

  • The bug that prevented some users from installing rails has been squashed. A big thanks to Bill Guindon (aGorilla) for helping track that one down.

There are several new commands available on the gem command:

  • gem cleanup GEMNAME – Cleanup (uninstall) all the old versions of gem. If the gem name is omitted, the entire repository is cleaned.
  • gem dependency GEMNAME – Show the dependencies for the named gems. This is really helpful when trying to figure out what gem needs what other gem.

There changes to the existing commands as well.

  • gem uninstall is much smarter about removing gems from the repository. Lists of gems are now uninstalled in proper dependency order (ie. if A depends on B, A is uninstalled first). Also, warnings about broken dependencies occur only when removing the last gem that supports a dependency is removed.

Both gem install and gem uninstall support some new command line options that can reduce the amount of yes/no queries given the user. For install we have:

  • –ignore-dependencies – Only install requests gems, no dependendecies are automatically installed.
  • –include-dependencies – Automatically install dependencies, without confirmation.

For gem uninstall, the new options are:

  • –all – Uninstall all matching gems without confirmation.
  • –ignore-dependencies – Uninstall, even if dependencies are broken.
  • –executables – Remove executables without confirmation

Under general cleanup, gems will not, by default, run RDoc on packages that do not have the RDoc flag set.

And finally there is a new library file ‘gemconfigure’ to aid in writing version sensitive applications (without undue dependencies on RubyGems); and ‘gemwhich’, a short script to locate libraries in the file system. You can read more about them here:

  • gemconfigure: http://docs.rubygems.org/read/chapter/4#page73
  • gemwhich: http://docs.rubygems.org/read/chapter/17

0.8.6 / 2005-02-27

  • Fixed a small bug with shebang construction

0.8.5 / 2005-02-26

Do you know how you used to dread getting the following message while installing gems?

Updating Gem source index for: http://gems.rubyforge.org

It could take up to 30 seconds (on my machine, even worse on others) for that crazy source index to update.

This latest release of RubyGems speeds that wait time up considerably. The following table gives the following times for installing RedCloth with a required source index update on three system we had available to us. No RDoc generation was included in the following times.

RubyGems Linux Mac OSX Windows 0.8.4 33 secs 73 secs 58 secs 0.8.5 8 secs 14 secs 21 secs

The new caching code is at least 3x faster than previous versions. Woo Hoo!

0.8.4 / 2005-01-01

  • Rubygems 0.8.3’s installer was broken unless you already had an older version of RubyGems installed. That’s fixed.
  • Change in the way Gem::Specification internally deals with lazy attributes and defaults, bringing (with some loadpath_manager changes) a fairly significant increase in speed.
  • Support for lower-cased Gem file names (for you, Paul Duncan :)
  • Erik Veenstra’s patch for making Gem versions sortable.

0.8.3 / 2004-12-07

No real earth shattering news here, but there were a number of really annoying issues involving other libraries that RubyGems depends upon. 0.8.3 contains some workarounds for these issues. In particular:

  • Added workaround for the null byte in Dir string issue. (see https://blade.ruby-lang.org/ruby-talk/121702). (Thanks to Mauricio Fernández for the quick response on this one).
  • Added workaround for old version of Zlib on windows that caused Ruwiki to fail to install. (see https://blade.ruby-lang.org/ruby-talk/121770)
  • Added workaround for large YAML file issues. (We dynamically cut down the size of the source index YAML file and seem to have worked around immediate issues.

There has been some minor usability enhancements and changes …

  • A user specific source index cache can be used when the site-wide cache is unwritable (i.e. because you are running as a non-admin). This greatly speeds up gem commands run in non-admin mode when the site-wide cache is out of date.
  • The gem command now used an HTTP HEAD command to detect if the server’s source index needs to be downloaed.
  • gem check gemname –test will run unit tests on installed gems that have unit tests.
  • Multiple gem names are allowed on the gem install command line. This means you can do:

    gem install rake rails needle postgres-pr pimki

    (Ok, you get the idea)

  • Multiple authors my be specified in a Gem spec.
  • Switched to using setup.rb (rather than a custom install script) for the installation of RubyGems itself. If you have installed RubyGems before, double check the installation instructions and make sure you use setup.rb instead of install.rb.
  • Ryan Davis has provided a patch so you can use an env variable (GEM_SKIP), to tell loadpath_manager not to load gems of those names. This was useful for him while testing libs that he had in development.

0.8.1 / 2004-09-17

  • Quick release to capture some bug fixes.

0.8.0 / 2004-09-15

  • Remove need for library stubs. Set the RUBYOPT environment variable to include “rrubygems”, and a normal require will find gem files. Continue to use ‘require_gem gem_name, version’ to specify gem versions.
  • Deprecated “test_suite_file” gemspec attribute in favor of “test_files” array.
  • Generates rdoc by default on installs.
  • Adopted tar/gzip file format, thanks to Mauricio Fernandez.
  • “gem rdoc” allows generation of rdoc after gem installation (will add a “gem test”
  • Application stubs can now accept an optional parameter of VERSION that will run an arbitrary version of the application requested.
  • Various bug fixes
  • Various platform-independency improvements
  • “gem spec –all” displays spec info for all installed version of a given gem.
  • Dynamic caching of sources
  • Support for user-definable sources on the command line (thanks Assaph Mehr)
  • More intelligent support for platform-dependent gems. Use Platform::CURRENT when building a gem to set its platform to the one you’re building on. Installation displays a choice of platform-dependent gems, allowing the user to pick.
  • Added “gem unpack” for “unpacking” a gem to the current directory

0.7.0 / 2004-07-09

See git log

0.6.1 / 2004-06-08

See git log

0.6.0 / 2004-06-08

  • Collapse output of –search and –list (and gem_server) operations so that each gem is listed only once, with each of its versions listed on the same line.
  • bin/gem: new –upgrade-all option allows one to upgrade every installed gem
  • new #required_ruby_version attribute added to gem specification for specifying a dependency on which version of ruby the gem needs. Format it accepts is the same as the Gem::Version::Requirement format:

    spec.required_ruby_version = “> 1.8.0”

  • –install-stub defaults to true, so library stubs are created

0.5.0 / 2004-06-06

  • Jim added the ability to specify version constraints to avoid API incompatibilities. This has been the subject of much debate for the past couple of months, with many ideas and code contributed by Eivind Eklund and Mauricio Fernandez. The following set of assertions shows how it works:

    assert_inadequate(“1.3”, “~> 1.4”) assert_adequate( “1.4”, “~> 1.4”) assert_adequate( “1.5”, “~> 1.4”) assert_inadequate(“2.0”, “~> 1.4”) # This one is key–the new operator # disallows major version number # differences.

  • Group gem search output when multiple versions exist for a given gem:

    activerecord (0.7.8, 0.7.7, 0.7.6, 0.7.5) Implements the ActiveRecord pattern for ORM.

  • Add arbitrary RDoc-able files via gemspec (not just Ruby source files) for people who have, for example, README.rdoc in their distributions. Add to gemspec via: spec.extra_rdoc_files = [“list”, “of”, “files”]. Ruby files are automatically included.
  • Some small bug fixes

0.4.0 / 2004-05-30

  • Minor bug fixes including Windows compatibility issues

0.3.0 / 2004-04-30

  • Cleanup of command-line arguments and handling. Most commands accept a –local or –remote modifier.
  • Creation of Application Gems (packages that include executable programs). See http://rubygems.rubyforge.org/wiki/wiki.pl?DeveloperGuide for information on how to use it.
  • Basic functionality for installing binary gems from source (:extensions property of gem specification holds an array of paths to extconf.rb files to be used for compilation)
  • Install library “stub” allowing a normal ‘require’ to work (which then does the rubygems require and ‘require_gem’
  • –run-tests runs the test suite specified by the “test_suite_file” property of a gem specification
  • HTTP Proxy support works. Rewrite of HTTP code.
  • Unit and functional tests added (see Rakefile).
  • Prompt before remote-installing dependencies during gem installation.
  • Config file for storing preferences for ‘gem’ command usage.
  • Generally improved error messages (still more work to do)
  • Rearranged gem directory structure for cleanliness.

0.2.0 / 2004-03-14

  • Initial public release
