= Version 0.6 (2006-05-25)

== Summary

This major release adds a comprehensive user manual, upgrades from
make to Rake[http://rake.rubyforge.org], and improves the test
generation tool.

== Details

  • A comprehensive user manual, written in DocBook-XML, has been added.

  • Rake has replaced the role of +make+. All makefiles have been
    converted accordingly.

  • The test generation tool now generates multiple files (runner,
    bench, design, spec) and makes backups of existing files. See its
    help information for details.

  • Support for RSpec 0.5.4 has been added.

  • The counter example now makes use of RSpec.

  • Tested and developed using:

    • Ruby 1.8.4 and Icarus Verilog 0.8 on i686 GNU/Linux
    • Ruby 1.8.4 and Mentor Modelsim 6.1d on x86_64 GNU/Linux

== Acknowledgment

  • Thanks to Jose Renau for solving the problem of strange delays
    that occurred whenever a design was reset.
