Rb-readline 0.4.0 released


I’m pleased to announce the release of Pure-Ruby Readline library
version 0.4.0:

You can download the zip packages (uses setup.rb for installation) from


Changes in this release:

=== 0.4.0 / 2011-01-10

  • Enhancements:
    • Provides convenience gem for 3rd parties.
    • Provides access to readline line_buffer (to support Bond).
    • Initial support for gemification of the library.
    • Reduce keyboard input delay to kill sluggishness.

It is important to note that with this release, rb-readline is not
provided as gem, so looks like ripl/bond can use it in the future
instead of Ruby-based Readline extension.

As usual, zip package for installation into site_ruby is provided in
the GitHub URL on the top of this message.
