ANN: Rev 0.2.4, a libev-based event framework, now with Ruby 1.8.7 and 1.9.1 support


#1

Rev is a high performance event library for Ruby, based around the libev
C
library. It’s similar to EventMachine, but builds on the Ruby core
types
including IO, Socket/TCPSocket and the Ruby OpenSSL library, and exposes
an
object-oriented interface to event reception.

Rev also forms the basis of the Revactor actor-based concurrency library
for
Ruby 1.9 (see http://revactor.org). This release of Rev includes
support
for Ruby 1.9.1 and will allow you to continue using Revactor on Ruby
1.9.1.
Also included is support for Ruby 1.8.7. Support for 1.8.6 is still
included as well.

This release also brings with it initial support for Windows,
contributed by
Roger P… There isn’t presently a gem available for Windows but we
hope
to have one soon.

Also included is an upgrade to the latest version of libev, version
3.52.

You can grab this release from:

http://rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=5080

Or “gem install rev” as soon as the gem has propagated to all of the
mirrors.

Additional information about Rev is available at:

As a note, AFAIK this compiles out of the box with ruby mingw + devkit

Enjoy.
