2.0.3 Released

RubyGems 2.0.3 is a bug-fix release. To update to the latest RubyGems you can run:

gem update --system

To install RubyGems by hand see the Download RubyGems page.

If you installed 2.0.1 and are unable to upgrade please follow the how to upgrade/downgrade RubyGems instructions.

Bug fixes:

  • Reverted automatic upgrade to HTTPS as it breaks RubyGems APIs. Fixes #506 by André Arko
  • Use File.realpath to remove extra / while checking if files are installable. Issue #508 by Jacob Evans.
  • When installing RubyGems on JRuby, the standard library is no longer deleted. Fixes #504 by Juan Sanchez, #507 by Charles Oliver Nutter.
  • When building extconf.rb extensions use the intermediate destination directory. This addresses further issues with C extension building.
  • Use the absolute path to the generated siteconf in case the extension changes directories to run extconf.rb (like memcached). Fixes #498 by Chris Morris.
  • Fixed default gem key and cert locations. Pull request #511 by Samuel Cochran.
