In combination with the rest of the RubyInstaller team, I'm very
pleased to announce the release of RubyInstaller packages for
As usual, installer and 7z packages are available at RubyInstaller

= RubyInstaller and version of GCC
It is important to mention that this version (along with all 1.9.2 and
recent 1.8.7 releases) uses and requires GCC 4.5.2, which is the
current version of our Development Kit.
Attempts to use previous versions of GCC (3.4.5) will not work and
generate random errors.
Also, users not using RubyInstaller DevKit but instead mingw.org GCC
4.6.1, be warned that usage of -fno-omit-frame-pointer option is
required due some changes on how GCC deal with _setjmp.
Bug reports filled for those issues will be immediately closed.
Perfection in design is achieved not when there is nothing more to add,
but rather when there is nothing more to take away.
