Ice 3.6b Ruby Gem

Starting with Ice 3.6 we will release our official Ice for Ruby distributions as a Ruby Gem.

To give you a chance to test this distribution format, and to provide feedback to us prior to the Ice 3.6 release I just uploaded the packages for Ice 3.6b onto rubygems.org. See https://rubygems.org/gems/zeroc-ice for details.

The install will also install the slice2rb translator. On a UNIX-like machine it will be installed into /usr/local/bin or /usr/bin. On Windows it is installed to the ruby bin directory.

Note when installing the gem you will need to use the --pre command line option as the release is tagged as a beta product.

For example, under OSX to install the gem
$ gem install zeroc-ice --pre

Currently we do not have pre-built Gems for Windows. They should be available shortly.

    I just pushed binary gems for 32 bit and 64 bit windows. They both were built against Ruby 2.1.5 and will not work with prior versions of Ruby. The 32 bit version of the gem was build with MinGW 4.7.3 due to bugs with the standard Ruby 2.1.5 devkit build of MinGW. The 64 bit version used the standard Ruby 2.1.5 MinGW.

    See the following links for details on the two gems.
