Mime-types 1.22 Released

mime-types version 1.22 has been released!

This library allows for the identification of a file’s likely MIME
type. This is release 1.22 with new MIME types. The identification of
content type is based on a file’s filename extensions.

MIME types are used in MIME-compliant communications, as in e-mail or
HTTP traffic, to indicate the type of content which is transmitted.
MIME::Types provides the ability for detailed information about MIME
entities (provided as a set of MIME::Type objects) to be determined and
used programmatically. There are many types defined by RFCs and vendors,
so the list is long but not complete; don’t hesitate to ask to add
additional information. This library follows the IANA collection of MIME
types (see below for reference).

MIME::Types for Ruby was originally based on and synchronized with
for Perl by Mark Overmeer, copyright 2001 - 2009. As of version 1.15,
the data
format for the MIME::Type list has changed and the synchronization will
longer happen.

MIME::Types is built to conform to the MIME types of RFCs 2045 and 2231.
