Vlad 2.0.0 Released

vlad version 2.0.0 has been released!

Vlad the Deployer is pragmatic application deployment automation,
without mercy. Much like Capistrano, but with 1/10th the
complexity. Vlad integrates seamlessly with Rake, and uses familiar
and standard tools like ssh and rsync.

I screwed up and spaced out on updating the history properly:

=== 2.0.0 / 2009-08-18

  • 1 major enhancement:

    • Removed all extra modules that we don’t support in core anymore.
  • 2 minor enhancements:

    • Added test to show that false is a valid variable value.
    • Moved vlad_test_case from test to lib to support 3rd party vlad

vlad-git and vlad-mercurial to follow. If you want to maintain one of
the modules and release from hitsquad, let me know by filing a ticket
on rubyforge.org.
