wxRuby 1.9.1, wxSugar 0.1.17

I’m happy to announce that new versions of wxRuby and wxSugar are now
available. wxRuby is a comprehensive GUI toolkit for desktop
applications which uses native widgets on Windows, Linux/GTK and OS X.
wxSugar is a testing ground for syntax improvements to wxRuby.

== INSTALLATION ==

gem install wxruby

NOTE: if you’re using wxSugar in existing code, please upgrade to the
latest version at the same time as installing wxRuby 1.9.1 (gem install
wx_sugar)

NOTE: We currently have binary builds for Linux (Intel) Windows (Intel)
and OS X (Intel and PPC) We hope to have Linux (AMD64) added shortly.

== CHANGES ==

  • Merged nice ruby-style syntax options into core wxRuby
  • Support for StyledTextCtrl (Scintilla) advanced text-editing control
  • Added BitmapComboBox and RendererNative classes
  • Fixed nasty bug which could cause instability in XML-loaded layouts
  • Numerous other fixes and new methods in existing classes
  • Figured out how to build on AMD-64 Linux
  • Upgraded binary builds to be based on latest wxWidgets 2.8.5
  • New and updated samples and docs

A full ChangeLog is included with the download. For fuller info on the
new syntax, see http://wxruby.rubyforge.org/doc/wxruby_intro.html .

== KNOWN ISSUES ==

http://rubyforge.org/tracker/?group_id=35

== NEXT STEPS ==

For 1.9.2, we’re considering adding some additional syntax options from
wxSugar, then freezing the API. With some luck and few fixes, 1.9.2
might be a 2.0 release candidate.

== CREDITS ==

As ever, this version’s only possible thanks to collaboration from the
core dev team and other participants. Particular thanks to: Sean L.
for ongoing support and providing many binary builds; Glenn Davy for
working through the AMD 64 build process; Roy S., who did the
original work on wxScintilla; and to all those who filed bugs, answered
queries and took part in surveys & discussions on the mailing lists.

This is so easy !!

I have been discouraged to look at wxruby for a long time as I thought
that I needed to build and install wxWidgets before (on Windows). The
following page is a bit confusing :
http://wxruby.rubyforge.org/wiki/wiki.pl?Installation

You should make clear that the binary version of wxruby gems include
wxwidgets. This will attract more newbies like me.

Keep on your great work !
