Hi everyone,

The Win32Utils Team is happy to announce release 0.6.0 of win32-file.

= What is it?

A version of the File class that includes extra and redefined methods
for use on
MS Windows.

= What's new?

For Windows Vista and later there are now working implementations of the
File.symlink, File.symlink? and File.readlink methods.

There's also better wide character handling.

= Where can I get it?

gem install win32-file

Or, grab the file from the RubyForge project page at
