Good news!  My box is back up, so putting the beta gem in the normal place
won't be a problem.  Eric, if you wish to create the beta, that is not a
problem.  The biggest issue with betas is to make sure the 4 digit version
number is properly incremented between different betas.

Make sure the change log is up to date ... we don't need it for the beta,
but I use that to glean diffs from previous versions for the release notes
on a full release.

Thanks for all your hard work.
