IPAddress 0.7.0 released

Hi,

I’ve released IPAddress 0.7.0.

This new release is focused on two points:

  • compatibilily with IPAddr

almost all IPAddress methods are compatible with their IPAddr
counterpart, with the exception of wrong and flawed methods

  • performances improvement

IPAddress is now around 50% faster than IPAddr on all normal tasks. As
an example, this is the speed improvement on initialize and to_s

  user     system      total        real

ipaddr 68.960000 20.930000 89.890000 ( 90.105755)
ipaddress 44.410000 3.880000 48.290000 ( 48.414564)

Some other changes from previous versions:

  • Creating a new IPv4 address with no prefix now defaults to /32
  • New IPv4::parse_classful to parse a IPv4 address as classful
  • IPv4#private? to check if an IPv4 is private

0.7.0 is not a valid IP address. How did you manage to sneak this by
the ICANN?

SCNR :slight_smile:

I told them it was the solution for IPv4 address exhaustion :slight_smile:
