Ruby newest release breaks Rails, no fix until RailsConf ends (github.com)

The new recommended Ruby version (Ruby 1.9.3p194 with the new RubyGems 1.8.23) introduces a security patch that now verifies SSL certificates. The rubygems.org server is wrongly configured for SSL connections. When someone tries to build a new Rails application, they will get an SSL_connect failure. There's a workaround available. A fix for the server should be forthcoming when the RailsConf ends; the RubyGems team is currently at the conference.

Hi folks! @evanphx, @drbrain, and myself are all at RailsConf. That doesn't mean we're ignoring things.

Evan's fixed the cert issue, if you're still seeing problems please let us know.

There's a twitter account that we keep updated for service issues like this, please follow it! http://twitter.com/rubygems_status

Excellent! Greatly appreciate your efforts to build a better Ruby. And congratulations to @drbrain on the Ruby Heroes award!
