Hello,

I'm very pleased to announce the release of RubyInstaller packages for
Ruby 1.9.2-p136

As usual, installer and 7z-packages are available at RubyInstaller
website and RubyForge for download:

http://rubyinstaller.org/downloads
http://rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=3D167&release_id=3D45314

For verification, MD5 signatures are provided:

9ce7db70da006994888171a0b1c2e809 *ruby-1.9.2-p136-doc-chm.7z

Installer is also digitally signed to avoid alterations and UAC warnings.

You can read Ruby 1.9.2-p136 announcement and release notes at ruby-talk:

Only difference with official release is the applied patch to correct a
Win32::Registry bug that didn't made it due timing.

=3D What is new?

Beyond what is covered by Ruby itself, we have our own set of improvements:

=3D=3D Updated compiler toolchain to GCC 4.5.1

This is in sync with latest DevKit release announced:

http://groups.google.com/group/rubyinstaller/browse_thread/thread/348cae999=
11975ba

=3D=3D Friendly gem installation error messages for gems that require compi=
lation.

Most of the times, people find confusing the massive error messages
they receive when installing gems that require compilation and no
compiler toolchain available.

We customized this release to provide a nicer error message and
helpful instructions to the user where to obtain a compiler and what
to do with it.

Example:

C:\Users\Luis>gem install RedCloth
ERROR: =A0Error installing RedCloth:
=A0 =A0 =A0 =A0The 'RedCloth' native gem requires installed build tools.

Please update your PATH to include build tools or download the DevKit
from 'http://rubyinstaller.org/downloads' and follow the instructions
at 'http://github.com/oneclick/rubyinstaller/wiki/Development-Kit'

We hope with this message will be make things more easy for Ruby users
to figure out what is going on.

Regards,
