Several hours ago I pushed the 2.0.0 version of the minilab gem, but when I search for "minilab", 1.1.0 still shows up on the search. When I click the link, "minilab 1.1.0-x86-mswin32-60" shows in the header. However, version 2.0.0 does show up at the bottom in the list of available versions.

Have I screwed something up? The native platform for the gem changed, so I'm wondering if there's something going on there.

    Yeah, I think this is a bug with version sorting with different platforms. Seeing the same issue here: https://github.com/rubygems/gemcutter/issues#issue/249

    Usually we suggest that when using platform gems, you push version numbers for all platforms at the same time. Not sure if that's feasible here but it helps :) We've had issues with Nokogiri doing this in the past.

    The old platforms aren't supported anymore - I'm only targeting the latest RubyInstaller on Windows (x86-mingw32) now.

    What do you recommend for this case?

    Just leave it as is until I can fix the bug (or provide a patch yourself! :) )

    The version ordering is only wrong on the rubygems.org home page, getting the gem via gem list, gem install, gem fetch, etc will work fine.

    Ok. I was concerned that rubydoc.info's automatic linking into the newest version of the gem wasn't working either, but that appears to have resolved itself. Between that and what you've said, I'm no longer concerned.

    Thanks for the assistance.
