Mysql 2.9.0 Released

mysql version 2.9.0 has been released!

This is the MySQL API module for Ruby. It provides the same functions
for Ruby
programs that the MySQL C API provides for C programs.

This package is offered as gem for easy installation using RubyGems. It
unmodified tmtm’s mysql-ruby extension into a proper gem.

Please note that tmtm (Tomita Mashahiro) has deprecated development of
extension and only update it for bug fixes.
