I'm holding off an 'official' release of Rubyx (ruby based linux distro) 
because it hits some bugs in 1.8.1 which have been fixed in cvs

I was wondering whether anyone knows when 1.8.2 will be released?

Otherwise, is there a way of detecting a version of ruby, which also covers 
dated stable snapshots?

Eg Rubyx needs stable-snapshot-2004-01-14.rar or newer. How can I test for it?
