    We've change the name of the project from "Ruby Installer for Windows" to
    the "One-Click Ruby Installer" because we are branching out more platforms
    that just Windows -- a version of the One-Click installer for OS X is under
    active development.

    In addition, we'd like to create One-Click installers for Gnome and KDE (if
    we can get someone to volunteer for the job).

    Curt, thanks to you and to Andy before you (and the others who have
    helped and will) for this wonderful growing project. It's a real
    service to the community.

  3. I can not believe it!!

    I _love_ this community!

    I'm trying to get Ruby to be used in Bioinformatics here at college,
    but I can't since they need 'cross-platform' (yeah, they've gone with
    Java), and the only thing 'stopping' me ( I haven't recommended it to
    them) is that it's too tricky for me to get everything setup for OS
    X!!

    Please tell me that FOX and FXRuby will be in the installer!!

    PLEASE!! :)

    -Rich

    Thanks for the kind words and encouragement.

    However, I have to give full credit for this new page in the story of the
    Ruby Installer to Steve Steiner. He is the one who volunteered to do the
    development work for the OS X version of the Ruby Installer.

  6. I used darwinports to install Fox, FXRuby, and Freeride on OS X. Worked
    like a charm. The only caveat is that the installer only works with the
    darwinport version of ruby, so I had to install that, even though I had
    installed ruby already. However, one nice thing about the darwinports
    ruby is that it configures readline for irb for you automatically
    (though I had gotten it setup for regular ruby already).

    Now I just need to get DBI and mysql-ruby setup. I think that's now a
    bit more complex since I installed mysql via fink.

    That said, I look forward to the OSX installer. I immensely appreciate
    the Windows one.

    Regards,
    Nick

    Thanks for the worsd of encouragement. We have a number of issues to work
    out still, but I too am looking forward to having the One-Click Ruby
    Installer available on multiple platforms!

    Now if we could just get someone to volunteer to do Gnome and KDE versions
    for us... ;-)
