Hi Eric,

Great news! And there's the hope that the new RubyGems will be more memory
efficient. I'm going to integrate the latest bits into JRuby proper
soon, and we'll see.
(we've been getting the constant questions from JRuby users about very high
memory consumption when running rubygems).

A couple of question though:

I'd like to double-check that the main/standard rubygems repository is already
updated to take advantage of this new feature?

I think that you meant RUBY_ENGINE, not RBX_ENGINGE, right?
