I've finally decided to do a bug fix release for ruby-breakpoint.

In the near future you can expect more news from this project as I'll be
working on it for this year's Summer of Code. See the TODO for what is
planned:

   http://ruby-breakpoint.rubyforge.org/doc/files/TODO.html

If there is anything else I can do to make ruby-breakpoint more useful
or easier to use please tell me. Now is the best time to suggest new
features!


= What is ruby-breakpoint?

ruby-breakpoint lets you inspect and modify state at run time. This
allows you to diagnose bugs, patch applications and more all via IRB by
simply doing a method call at the place you want to investigate.

ruby-breakpoint is integrated into the popular RubyOnRails and Nitro web
development frameworks. In the past it has also been a part of the Ruby
dev-utils Project.

ruby-breakpoint is available from http://ruby-breakpoint.rubyforge.org/
The web site also is a good place for discussing new features, filing
bug reports and so on.


= Where can I get it?

ruby-breakpoint is available via RubyGems. Using it installing is as
easy as typing the following into a shell:

   gem install ruby-breakpoint

If you don't have RubyGems or prefer downloading this via the web that's
no problem either. All files are also available directly from RubyForge
via http://rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=559


= What's new in ruby-breakpoint 0.5.1?

* Moved functionality of bin/breakpoint_client to
   lib/breakpoint_client.rb and changed it so that it will respect
   previously set Options. (Should make it easier for other libraries to
   integrate ruby-breakpoint with custom options.)
* Fixed trouble with .irbrc on remote breakpoint server when calling
   DRb.activate_drb (see http://dev.rubyonrails.com/ticket/803)
* Fixed client.y not working (Need to undef DRbObject#to_yaml)
* Fixed client << 5 and similar not working
* Fixed client.require not working with some RubyGems versions
* WorkSpace#evaluate no longer extends strings and numerics with
   DRbUndumped (Works around "DRb::DRbObject#to_str should return
String"
   style bugs)
* Documented bug in Binding.of_caller() that causes
   Breakpoint.breakpoint() to have a wrong object context. breakpoint()
   works correctly.
