HighLine 1.0.2 Released

Fixed all outstanding issues.

What is HighLine?

(from the README)

HighLine was designed to ease the tedious tasks of doing console
input and output with low-level methods like gets() and puts().
HighLine provides a robust system for requesting data from a user,
without needing to code all the error checking and validation rules
and without needing to convert the typed Strings into what your
program really needs. Just tell HighLine what you’re after, and let
it do all the work.

What’s new in this release?

(highlights from the CHANGELOG)

  • Added ERb escapes processing to lists, for coloring list items.
    Color escapes
    do not add to list element size.
  • HighLine now throws EOFError when input is exhausted (for Cntrl-D
    support).

Plus documentation and examples for the new features. We also fixed
all reported bugs!

Where can I learn more?

HighLine is hosted on RubyForge.

…but we unfortunately introduced a new one. :wink:

HighLine’s character and password reading features are broken in this
release. We have located and fixed the problem now and will try to
get a release out in the next few days…

Sorry for the hassle.

HighLine 1.0.4 is out, fixing the issue described above. If you
updated to 1.0.2, I strongly recommend going up to 1.0.4 now since a
large chunk of HighLine’s functionality was affected by this bug.

Sorry about the hassle.
