Hello Rubists from the World.

This message is to announce the long waited update version of One-
Click Ruby Installer (OCI).

This version, built with VC6, updates some of the components,
including RubyGems and solve bugs found in the installer, sneaking
also some requested features.

As usual, you can download the latest version from the RubyForge page:
