I finally got RVM working and now I would like RVM to install the latest stable ruby version.

In the tutorial I am using they installed ruby 1.9.3 with command :

rvm install 1.9.3

Now I want to know if there is a command to download the latest stable version, or do I have to check latest stable version and download it like that, or else, can I download any old version and run an upgrade?

Normally I would try out everything, but I am working on a new server and I am trying to set it up as clean as I can :)

you can install latest rvm and ruby by :

$ \curl -L https://get.rvm.io | bash -s stable --ruby

and check all the ruby version with stability

$ rvm list known

can also check details here : http://www.ruby-lang.org/en/downloads/

$ rvm install ruby 2.0.0-p247 

Use when you want to download specific version or know this is stable.
