ok, sorry for being so cryptic
when you download the "full" version of Gem (without sources, for
windows) you will get a Gem.dll and some folders with reference-patches
and other documentation (example patches)
up till now, Gem is only an external library, it has no abstractions
(this will most probably change in the future)
so to run gem-0.90.1 it is sufficient to have the correct Gem.dll
if you want the documentation too (while the functionality has not
changed, almost all of the reference-patches have been rewritten for
0.90) you will need to download it.
so in short:
1.) you need the Gem.dll (if you are on windos) for 0.90.1
2.) you might want the optional documentation
there is no bundle that consists of both the 0.90.1-binary and the
so what to do:
install it by hand:
1. get the binary http://gem.iem.at/download/gem-bin-0.90.1.zip
2. get the documentation (without binary)
of course you are free to get the bin+doc-bundle
install as instructed
then replace the 0.90.0 Gem.dll with the 0.90.1 one
sounds complicated ?
probably it is......
prize question: what would be the free windows installer of choice ?
