Aaron Patterson checked in a replacement to OpenURI that uses  
persistent connections, which significantly speeds up metadata updates.

Please test this out, especially if you are behind a proxy server.

I'm going through the tracker, and have determined the following bugs  
should also be fixed for a 1.1 release.

Any other nominations?

`gem install` doesn't have proper exit code
http://rubyforge.org/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=17438&group_id=126&atid=575

`gem update --system --version` always updates to latest
http://rubyforge.org/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=16842&group_id=126&atid=575

rubygems 0.9.5 does not prefer local files over remote files when  
installing dependencies
http://rubyforge.org/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=15759&group_id=126&atid=575

`gem update` re-installs the same version of a gem if there is a newer  
version for a different platform
http://rubyforge.org/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=14780&group_id=126&atid=575

'gem update' does not properly install dependencies
http://rubyforge.org/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=17488&group_id=126&atid=575

Rubygems 0.9.5 doesn't take care of already installed gems for local  
installation
http://rubyforge.org/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=15790&group_id=126&atid=575

If these are easy, I will also look at:

require_path order is unpredictable
http://rubyforge.org/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=14533&group_id=126&atid=575

Gem::SourceIndex does not honor GEM_PATH ordering
http://rubyforge.org/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=14816&group_id=126&atid=575
