[ANN] AssetPackager released! Compress, merge, cache and ver

Hello all,

I’m announcing a new version of my plugin AssetPackager (formerly
known as MergeJS). Biggest new feature? It now merges and compresses
CSS files as well!

New Features:
* support for css files
* versioning of individual packages
* use of more meaningful subversion revision numbers (if
available) (thanks Chris Van Pelt!)
* namespaced rake tasks
* no more revision numbers in the yaml file
* lotsa refactoring
* unit tests
* more intuitive names for everything!

The rest of the info:

== AssetPackager

Easily merge, compress, cache, and version your javascript
and CSS with Ruby on Rails!

== Description:

When running in production, instead of sending down a dozen
javascript and css files full of formatting and comments,
this plugin allows you to merge and compress javascript down
into one or more files, thus saving download time for your users.

But when in development, it would be nice to use the formatted,
commented and logically separated versions for ease of
development and debugging.

This plugin makes it easy to do both.

Because not all browsers will dependably cache javascript
and css files with query string parameters, we write a timestamp
or subversion revision stamp into the merged file names. Therefore
files are correctly cached by the browser AND your users always
get the latest version when you re-deploy!

  • Formerly known as MergeJS.
