I haven't been calling out every version, but I've been making several 
bug fixes and minor enhancements over the past few days.  If you picked 
up a beta version earlier, you might want to grab the latest version. 
Recent fixes include adding a --[no]-ri option to install/update/rdoc 
commands (e.g. if you don't want RI docs, add a --no-ri option to the 
command line).  Also several fixes to native extension building.  The 
'gem' method replacement for 'require_gem' is now enabled.  Also, I 
reintroduced optional arguements to the SourceIndex.from_installed_gems 
command so that the Mongrel GemPlugin would continue to work. (the 
arguments were removed in a code cleanup refactoring a while back).

As always, let me know if anyone has any problems.
