Rb-readline 0.4.2 released


I’m happy to announce that version 0.4.2 of rb-readline is available
rb-readline is a pure-Ruby port of GNU Readline. 0.4.2 is a bugfix

Changes in this release:

=== 0.4.2 / 2011-11-01

  • Bugfixes:
    • Use encoding for Ruby 1.9.x to solve non-ascii input. GH-58

rb-readline is available via RubyGems[1] or downloaded as a zip archive

Users of RubyInstaller for Windows should note that installing the Gem
will not replace the bundled version of rb-readline (which will still be
loaded unless you alter the $LOAD_PATH). To do that, you should download
the ZIP archive and install it into site_ruby using setup.rb. You can
see which version is loaded by checking the value of
