Summary: One-Click Ruby Installer 186-27 Release Canditate 2
Project: Ruby Installer for Windows

Hello Ruby for Windows users!

At last second release candidate of 186-27 got released.

First I'll like to explain why this took so long:

When preparing this release (RC2), release 1.3.0 of RubyGems turned completely broken for Windows users.

After several weeks, version 1.3.1 was released, but new version of Rake (0.8.2 and 0.8.3) showed also problems.

While one of the issues where solved, the other is until now on hold, and that's one of the reasons we are sticking to Rake version 0.8.1.

At the same time, I'm focusing forces and time in tools that will ease the release of native gems for Windows and the work on the new installer based on GCC (MinGW).

Rest assured this project is far away from being dead.

The following are the list of things implemented and fixed in this RC and previous one:
