rvm get master

Today while upgrading Rubies with RVM, I learned something— you have to go outside rvm get stable && rvm list known to see all the Ruby versions available.

When I ran these two commands on my machine, the newest Ruby listed was 2.3.0. I happen to know this is not correct; 2.3.1 was released last month.
