    I'm pleased to announce the release of final RubyInstaller packages.

    For those not already familiar with RubyInstaller, these versions
    continue the great work started with the original One-Click Installer
    by providing both 1.8 and 1.9 versions of MRI Ruby for Windows.

    RubyInstaller is powered by GCC compiler, we provide as
    convenience an optional Development Kit, which now makes possible
    to install RubyGems that, until today, were not readily or easily
    available to Windows users.

    This release also focuses on improving the installation process and
    ensuring a much more pleasant experience for existing and new users of
    Ruby on Windows.

    =3D Before installing

    If you're upgrading from previous RubyInstaller packages, please
    uninstall these versions before proceeding. Don't worry, any gems
    that you installed or compiled since installed will not be removed.

    Since the new RubyInstaller uses a different compiler, we highly advise
    that you avoid attempting to install over any previous One-Click Installer
    installation, or any other variant versions (InstantRails, BitNami, etc.)

    We recommend that you backup your previous installation, take note of the
    details, your installed gem list, etc and proceed to completely uninstall
    any legacy installations.

    =3D Verify the downloaded files

    The following are the MD5 signatures of each component:

    Hello, due an error in the packaging, the folder and the MD5 for 1.8.6
    was incorrectly uploaded.

    I've corrected the files at RubyForge:

    http://rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=3D167&release_id=3D43805

    MD5:

    1e95a8010ca5d06ade9eec889fd0fc65 *ruby-1.8.6-p398-doc-chm-2.7z
    c41f68ee04b982b4a5be3cc630d98916 *ruby-1.8.6-p398-i386-mingw32-2.7z

    Apologize for any inconvenience.
