=3D=3D=3D 1.8.0 / 2011-04-34

This release focused on properly encapsulating functionality.  Most of =
this
work focused on moving functionality out of Gem::SourceIndex and
Gem::GemPathSearcher into Gem::Specification where it belongs.

After installing RubyGems 1.8.0 you will see deprecations when loading =
your
exsting gems.  Run `gem pristine --all --no-extensions` to regenerate =
your
gem specifications safely.

Currently RubyGems does not save the build arguments used to build gems =
with
extensions.  You will need to run `gem pristine gem_with_extension --
--build-arg` to regenerate a gem with an extension where it requires =
special
build arguments.
