We all enjoy the stability and quality of Ruby but I think it is important to test the latest code as well, to help improve future versions (and keep ourselves up to date as well). Many Windows users are probably put off by the idea of getting the latest code and having to compile and build it on Windows. I decided to include in the sidebar, Win32 builds of the latest stable and nightly snapshots for this very reason. This means that you can try the latest stable – or the unstable 1.9 – version of Ruby on your winbox without having to compile anything, just unzip and enjoy.
I don’t know how useful this is for the community in general, but if your feedback is positive, I can update the builds frequently.
