PDF::Writer 1.1.8

Hi folks,

With the help of community members, we’ve cut another small
maintenance release.

This one takes another crack at the page numbering issues, and also
fixes a problem with font embedding.

Here are the related tickets:

http://stonecode.svnrepository.com/ruby_pdf/trac.cgi/ticket/1
http://stonecode.svnrepository.com/ruby_pdf/trac.cgi/ticket/6

Thanks for those who submitted patches and bug reports!

== Get it ==

gem install pdf-writer

or download at:
http://rubyforge.org/projects/ruby-pdf/

== Support ==

Mailing list:

http://groups.google.com/group/pdf-writer

Trac wiki / bug tracker:

== Project News ==

We’re currently working on Ruby 1.9 compatibility issues and also
thinking up some small enhancements for a PDF::Writer 1.2. Look for
more news soon!

== Shameless Self Promotion ==

For those that haven’t heard about it, I’m trying to take off several
months of work to hack on important open source Ruby projects. One of
my project ideas was to start a re-write of PDF::Writer from the
ground up, but I’d probably need at least 3 months of funding to
seriously consider that. To learn more / donate, see the description
and links at:

Those who donate will be able to vote for which project I should work
on, so if a PDF::Writer rewrite sounds good to you, it may be worth
your while :slight_smile:

no such file to load – meta_project

(See full trace by running task with --trace)

BTW, disabling the RubyForge forums and using Trac is a mistake. Not
only do I prefer the one stop shopping of RubyForge, I have absolutely
no idea how to submit a ticket/feature request/discuss a possible
issue, etc.

I’d be shocked if this worked anyway, since PDF::Writer has no unit
tests.

I don’t think that the RubyForge forums have been in place for a long
time for PDF::Writer. I’ll let Greg update the contact info to point
to the PDF::Writer discussion group on Google G. (the mailing list
on RubyForge is going to be shut down on the first of April, which
date was just pulled out of my head).
