= Announce: RubyGems Release 1.0.1

Release 1.0.1 fixes a few bugs.

Bugs Fixed:

* Installation on Ruby 1.8.3 through 1.8.5 fixed
* `gem build` on 1.8.3 fixed

Other Changes Include:

* Since RubyGems 0.9.5, RubyGems is no longer supported on Ruby 1.8.2  
or older,
   this is official in RubyGems 1.0.1.

== How can I get RubyGems?

NOTE:  If you have installed RubyGems using a package you may want to  
install a
new RubyGems through the same packaging system.

If you have a recent version of RubyGems (0.8.5 or later), then all
you need to do is:

   $ gem update --system   (you might need to be admin/root)

(Note: You may have to run the command twice if you have any previosly
installed rubygems-update gems).

If you have an older version of RubyGems installed, then you can still
do it in two steps:

   $ gem install rubygems-update  (again, might need to be admin/root)
   $ update_rubygems              (... here too)

If you don't have any gems install, there is still the pre-gem
approach to getting software ... doing it manually:

1. DOWNLOAD FROM: http://rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=126
3. INSTALL WITH:  ruby setup.rb  (you may need admin/root privilege)

== To File Bugs

The RubyGems bug tracker can be found on RubyForge at:

When filing a bug, `gem env` output will be helpful in diagnosing the  

If you find a bug where RubyGems crashes, please provide debug output.  
You can
do that with `gem --debug the_command`.

== Thanks

Keep those gems coming!
