Rant is a flexible build tool written in pure Ruby.
== What’s new in this release?
This is mainly a bugfix release.
Package::Zip, Package::Tgz: Fix bug where a file
that starts with the package name wouldn’t be included in the
package. (Reported and fixed by Kevin Burge.)
Fixed: The C source file scanner used by the
C::Dependencies task was confused by C-style single-line
RubyTest no longer uses testrb as test runner per default. Thus
it works on systems without testrb now (e.g. Debian based
systems). The old behaviour can be enabled by setting the loader
attribute to :testrb. A patch was provided by Max Nickel.
The C::Dependencies task accepts the new option
:correct_case, which is useful on case-insenstive
file systems. (Patch provided by Peter Allin.)
