No.  We are still working for checking.  For now, confirmed versions are 
only official releases of 1.6.8 and 1.8.1.

Stable-snapshots released at ruby-lang.org have a version string "1.8.2" 
since 2004-05-14T21:26:15+00:00.  In ruby, once matz decided to prepare 
an official release, he incremented version.h.  And preparing the 
official release generally takes a few weeks/months.
