The Ruby Installer 1.8.1-13 (final) for Windows has been released and 
is now available for download from:

  http://rubyinstaller.rubyforge.org/

This release fixes most of the problems with RI. One remaining RI
problem is that it still fails with all uppercase items (like 
"RI CGI" and "RI IO").

Win32ole is working much better than in the previous release, but
it still has problems.

All other reported problems have been fixed (I hope :-). You can
check for reported problems (or report new problems) at:

What is the Ruby Installer for Windows?
---------------------------------------

The Ruby Installer for Windows is a "one-click", self-contained Windows
installer that contains the Ruby language itself, dozens of popular
extensions and packages, a syntax-highlighting editor and execution
environment, and a Windows help file that contains the full text of the
book, "Programming Ruby: The Pragmatic Programmer's Guide".


Change Log for 1.8.1-13
-----------------------
- Included the win32ole from 1.8.1-10 because the win32ole as
  distributed in Ruby 1.8.1 is broken.
- Hand generated the ri database from a post 1.8.1 Ruby snapshot
  (because ri in the Ruby 1.8.1 release tarball was broken).
- Fixed the bad paths in the *.bat files in ruby\bin.
- Log4R was broken in the Ruby 1.8.1 distribution. This was fixed
  by applying this patch:
  http://blade.nagaokaut.ac.jp/cgi-bin/scat.rb/ruby/ruby-talk/80495
- Win32api is present in this distribution, but broken. It will not
  be fixed because Win32api has been deprecated and you should use
  Ruby/DL instead. See:
  http://blade.nagaokaut.ac.jp/cgi-bin/scat.rb/ruby/ruby-talk/94569

Enjoy!
