Default Ruby is lost after .ruby-version #184

I set a default Ruby in my ~/.zshrc

source /usr/local/share/chruby/
source /usr/local/share/chruby/

chruby 2.0.0

The default Ruby is used as expected. When I change into a directory containing a .ruby-version file, the Ruby is changed to the version contained within, as expected.

When I change out of the directory, the system Ruby is now the default again.

Is there anyway to restore the original default without having to invoke chruby 2.0.0 again?

Yep, currently chruby has no way of retaining the default version. Will work on this in 0.4.0.

See #170. Probably the least disruptive approach would be to use ~/.ruby-version as the default version to fall back to.

Thanks, adding a ~/.ruby-version is a good workaround 👍
