Hello,

According to our roadmap, this must be the last preview.

  ftp://ftp.ruby-lang.org/pub/ruby/1.8/ruby-1.8.0-preview7.tar.gz

  MD5: ca1df1f0c000b3392658ece0e5d64820

Important change of the preview:

  * Ruby/Tk has been debugged.  It must be much stable now.  Give a
    try, please.

  * Ruby finally compiles and runs on Linux-IA64.

  * Some portability report came for LinuxPPC (not fixed).  If you
    have any information, it'd be my pleasure.

Sorry for busy and noisy week.  I'm exhausted.
Happy weekend.
							matz.

p.s.

Thank you for all offered mirroring.  I ask everyone to mail me
directly again with your expecting URL, ending ruby-1.8.0.tar.gz
please.  Could you put the subject "downloading URL" to the mail?

www.ruby-lang.org will randomly choose the URL to download among
these.
