Release Name: 0.9.0

Notes: MiniGems is a lightweight drop-in replacement for rubygems to facilitate faster loading of gems as well as reducing memory consumption considerably. Depending on the amount of gems you have installed about 10-20 MB less RAM will be used, compared to the full rubygems library version, which keeps a cache of all gems and files referenced by them. Minigems handles loading of required gems from your scripts. If however, other functionality is needed, the full rubygems library will be loaded automatically to continue normal operation. Therefor, it's completely backwards compatible with RubyGems. There's currently a pending patch on RubyForge that integrates minigems into the standard RubyGems system. You can find more information at the tracker page; if you like minigems, please post a vote/followup there:
