It looks like doesn't currently process prerelease gems. It would be useful to have documentation to link to for beta versions of gems. It's also worth noting that already links to documentation for these versions, even though they don't exist.

    We get our gem list using Gem::SpecFetcher.fetcher.list(true), which retrieves a master list from (see our updater script ). Unfortunately this list doesn't include pre-releases, and I don't know any other way to get a complete list that includes such versions, so it's a little out of our control. You could ask Nick and the people to expose pre-releases in their master list, and see what they say.
