[ANN] Ruby-IXP 2.0.0


#1

= Version 2.0.0 (2007-03-06)

Ruby-IXP is an implementation of the 9P2000 protocol designed for
use with Window Manager Improved. It is written in pure Ruby to
avoid periodical calling of the wmiir command, thus improving
performance. There is another full-blown 9P2000 implementation
called Rstyx, but it’s rather complex and slow.

== Summary

This release removes obsolete code specific to wmii-3.1 and fixes some
bugs.

== Notice

  • The ‘lib/wmii.rb’ and ‘examples/wmiirc-astro’ files have been removed.

== Details

  • Fixed “tag in use” errors were occurring after 2^16 queries because
    non-unique tags were assigned to requests in IXP::Connection.query.

  • Fixed “undefined method `size’ for nil:NilClass” error, which occurred
    when an empty directory was read.
