Rdoc 2.3.0 Released

rdoc version 2.3.0 has been released!

RDoc is an application that produces documentation for one or more
Ruby source
files. RDoc includes the +rdoc+ and +ri+ tools for generating and
online documentation.

At this point in time, RDoc 2.x is a work in progress and may incur
API changes beyond what has been made to RDoc 1.0.1. Command-line
tools are
largely unaffected, but internal APIs may shift rapidly.

See RDoc for a description of RDoc’s markup and basic use.
