Update pre released gems

Usually I update gems with gem update command, but this ignores gems with pre released versions. Trying with gem update --prerelease I got same results. In conclusion I always check first if a new version exists gem search -r --pre gemname and after I install it with gem install --pre gemname.

Question: Better solution for lazy people :) ?

    Definitely a RubyGems bug. I tend to use gem install all the time but this seems like a valid issue....now that the source is on GItHub you could look into it if you have time before we get to it! :)
