Is Ruby 1.8.2 going to be released on July 7?  I heard a rumor that it 
might but would like to hear from others.

I was going to launch a mod_ruby site based on Ruby 1.8.1 around July 7 
but would probably delay the launch so I can use 1.8.2.  The 
improvements to OpenSSL in Ruby 1.8.2 are the primary reasons--another 
is to avoid upgrading Ruby after the site is launched.
