Also some announcements of progress on ruby-talk would raise the
awareness of non-involved people about this project, what it is doing,
and how far it got already. There are people asking about windows
installers from time to time.
The lack of any official release makes it look like there is nothing
going on. People tend to overlook projects that do not deliver
immediate and continuous noise.
It is true that the new installer is not a drop-in replacement for the
old all-in-one ruby one click installer. However, people using various
subsets of the original one click installer functionality might be
able to test and use an installer with fewer libraries but newer ruby.
