Just a quick announcement for people interested in GemPlugin.  GemPlugin
is
the plugin system for Mongrel (http://mongrel.rubyforge.org) which
implements a dynamic plugin loading system without anything more than
RubyGems and dependencies.  The 0.2.1 release features:


NEW STUFF

* Works with edge rails by doing a better require on the init.rb file
for
your plugin.
* Has a way for you to package resources and config files and then load
them
into Ruby.  This was used to package erb templates for the Mongrel
configtool (a Camping app).
* Should work without getting in the way of your regular gems and also
doesn't use any deprecated stuff (thanks Austin).
* A little generator script called gpgen that will get you started with
a
plugin very quickly.
* Does not depend on *any* Mongrel code and is Ruby licensed rather than
LGPL so people are free to use it.


GETTING IT

You can check the docs for GemPlugin at:

http://mongrel.rubyforge.org/gem_plugin_rdoc/

And you can grab it with:

 $ gem install gem_plugin

Finally here's some documentation on writing a Mongrel plugin which I'm
sure
someone can take for their own uses:

http://mongrel.rubyforge.org/docs/gem_plugin.html

Enjoy!
