wxRuby 1.9.8

Hi

Well, there’s a new wxRuby around.

== NEW FEATURES

  • Enable wxRuby to work with Ruby 1.8.7 and 1.9.0-4
    • As well as not crashing with these recent ruby releases,
      there’s also some binaries for Ruby 1.9
  • Eliminated many bugs, crashers and build problems
    • Includes fix for a nasty crasher in 1.9.7 affecting closed Windows
  • Added the context help set of classes (HelpProvider etc)
    • For example, you can use SimpleHelpProvider to show context
      help for individual widgets just by calling win#help_text=
  • Added GCDC and ClipboardTextEvent classes
    • GCDC permits anti-aliased drawing using the standard DC API
  • Substantial performance improvements
  • Many additions and corrections to docs
  • Builds are now based on wxWidgets-2.8.8
    • This latest stable version of wxWidgets include fixes for
      some bugs reported in wxRuby

== INSTALLATION

Source and binary gems from:
http://rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=35&release_id=25320

We’re working on a mswin-32 binary, but for the moment, Windows users
using the One-Click installer Ruby might try installing the mingw32
build. This seems to be compatible; please report any bugs.

== CREDITS

Thanks to everyone who provided patches, bug reports and feedback. This
version includes patches contributed by Cezar Espinola, Chauk-Mean P and
Pascal H…

== NEXT STEPS

Plan is to fix all remaining high-priority bugs and then make the next
release a stable 2.0. All reports and requests are welcome on the
RubyForge tracker; please give them a high priority (4+) if you want
them definitely fixed for the 2.0 release.

cheers

i would very like the clipboard bug in GTK to get fixed by version 2.0
but i can’t register with the rubyforge site for some reasons (it says
i’m lacking credentials when i login to confirm my email address). can
you please set the priority for this to the mentioned level?

Greetings,
Niklas

Sure, I’d see this as something we should fix for 2.0 - it’s a core
functionality problem that works in wxWidgets. I’ve marked it MUST FIX
for 2.0
