Install Sass on Windows: Wrong description?

Appendix A, 1.1.3 says
To install the latest version of Sass:
$gem install sass
However for me that only results in
ERROR: Could not find a valid gem 'sass' (>= 0) in any repository
Installing compass with "gem install compass" works fine and automatically installs haml, too, which includes sass, if I read the docs here correctly:
http://sass-lang.com/download.html

At least "sass -v" works fine after installing just the compass gem.
Maybe the bundling of haml with sass is new?

Ok, so after searching on the sass web site some more:
haml and sass have become separate not so long ago. There isn't yet a separate final gem for sass. To install the prerelease use
gem install sass --pre

Any ETA for the release version?

Sorry for the confusion, but this is a just a temporal issue. I expect that sass will be released in the week or so and then the instructions will be correct.
