Updated Ruby gems

Hi all!

I decided today to sit down and finally learn FoundationDB. Since Ruby is a language I can easily prototype with, I decided to choose its bindings.

https://rubygems.org/gems/fdb has the latest gem version as 5.2.6 (supporting API version 520). However, the FoundationDB download page currently has a gem file for 6.2.7 supporting 620. While I can of course download and manually install the gem, it makes things slightly more shattered to update in one swoop compared to RubyGems and bundler. Is that method of obtaining fdb still okay, or is it only supported to to vendor the provided gem locally?

Oh wow. Apparently we’ve been failing to upload ruby bindings for quite some time. @alvin will hopefully be automating the uploads soon, and we should eventually backfill the most recent of 6.0, 6.1, and now 6.2 uploaded as well. In the meantime, you’re welcome to use the download page version of 6.2.7. It will be the same thing that we’ll upload to rubygems.
