railsbench edge version available from github

Posted 16 Feb 2009

A while ago I moved my railsbench source repository to github. One of the benefits I hoped for was the possibility to have prerelease versions of the railsbench gem available for other people to try out, with minimal effort on my side. But github didn’t manage to build my gem automatically, as promised. I followed all instructions to the letter, but it just didn’t build. But recently the github gem builder received an update and now it does seem to work.

From now on you can install the bleeding edge version of railsbench from github. Do

gem sources -a

to add github as a remote gem repository and then do

sudo gem install skaes-railsbench

There a lots of changes in the upcoming release, as I haven’t released a new version for a long time. They are summarized in latest_changes.txt
