0.8.4 Released

published 01 Jan 2005

  • 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.
