There are a few things that need to get done before we release
1.) Resolve the WIN32 vs. CURRENT problem outlined in my reply to
Jase. It needs to compile for individuals who have the latest
RubyGems, but we also have to be able to cross-compile win32
binaries. _why, do you have any ideas?
2.) Find the right Ragel code style and C compiler flags for optimum
speed and memory usage. Stephen, didn’t you start working on a rake
task to benchmark the options? How’s that coming?
3.) Fix all the bugs. Ha ha. But seriously, there have been some
pretty major bugs coming in this month and I’ll feel better about
releasing when it’s better tested. I’m thinking I’ll post to ruby-
talk and say, “now’s your chance to test your app with RedCloth
before we release, you blindly gem up, and your site breaks.”
4.) Is there a way to make the gem case-insensitive? I see all
kinds of posts where someone says “gem install redcloth” doesn’t work
(I even wrote it wrong on the wiki). If we make it lowercase,
everything posted around the web with it uppercase will be wrong.
Short of changing RubyGems itself, is there something we can do to
make it work both ways?
