@metaskills so I see that https://github.com/oneclick/rubyinstaller2 is getting some serious work done on it. Have you checked it out yet? Apparently it requires some extra work for gem compatibility. Maybe once we're done with the miniportile stuff I'll take a look at getting ready for rubyinstaller2
Oh wow, I didn't realize it hit official release...

It has some pretty nice features which may make it unnecessary to distribute openssl and libiconv once it has enough adoption:

Now we just wait to see if it gets adopted. I'm hoping adoption will be accelerated since rubyinstaller1 still lacks a maintainer.

Re: RubyInstaller2, I have not.
WOW! Reading up on that now. All this is foreign to me, but MSYS2 seems hot.
