= Release Notes

== 0.0.2

This release comes with new syntax for setting attributes of
BetaBrite::String and BetaBrite::TextFile. Setting attributes like color
and character set is now less cumbersome. For example, here is the old
way to set the color using constants:
s = BetaBrite::String.new(“hello”)
s.color = BetaBrite::String::Color::GREEN
Instead you can do this:
s = BetaBrite::String.new(“hello”) { |a|
a.set_color “green”
}
You can treat TextFile similarly:
s = BetaBrite::TextFile.new { |a|
a.set_mode “compressed_rotate”
a.set_position “middle”
}
These special set functions figure out what constant you want and set it
to the attribute you want. “set_mode” looks up the name passed in in the
constants stored in the Mode class, and sets it to the mode attribute.

How much do the signs cost? Their website doesn’t say much.
