It's not a very important issue but the just updated list is not showing my gem even if I update it like 1 second it normal (like yu have other criteria in forming the list) or it's actually a bug?

    There's definitely a long standing bug there, not sure why it does just sort versions by created_at desc.

    I see..........after some experiment, I think it's due to the time zone. I am in the central time of United States and when I publish my gem, the time is recorded as updated at 7 or 8 hours ago. And if there is no one publishing any new version within 7 or 8 hours, my gem will show up in the recent updated list. But it won't if there are more than 5 people updating their gem within this time period.

    I think that's why this just updated thing only "sometimes" work.

    But as I have said this is really a minor bug. I guess I would like to see rubygem 1.4 working for ruby 1.9 sooner 100 times more than this bug fixing. =P

    Anyway, rubygem is GREAT! and Thanks for you guys' work.

    Yeah, definitely a bug though. Entered:

    And yeah, I'd love to see a 1.9 fix too :(
