If you’ve got a custom RDoc template, it won’t work in the next
release of Ruby 1.9.
You can find details on how to convert from an old TemplatePage
template to the new ERB-based TemplatePage wrapper here:
This should make it much easier to build templates for RDoc output
than it has been in the past.
I plan on making some further changes to the organization of the RDoc
generation code, including documentation of what gets rendered when
and what values are provided to the template. I’ll also be providing
additional information to the templates which should enable more-
flexible page generation.
If you are a template author, I’d like to know what additional data
you’d want in a template so I can include it.
At some point in the future there will be a release of my RDoc work-in-
progress. Until then, you’ll need to check it out from ruby trunk.
