namecase version 1.1.0 has been released!

* <http://namecase.rubyforge.org/>

NameCase is a Ruby implementation of Lingua::EN::NameCase, a library for
converting strings to be properly cased. This is good for converting
denormalized data to human friendly data.

* Example Usage

  NameCase("RON BURGUNDY")  # => Ron Burgundy
  NameCase("MCDONALDS")     # => McDonalds

* Acknowledgements

This library is a port of the Perl library, and owes most of its
functionality
to the Perl version by Mark Summerfield. Any bugs in the Ruby port are
my
fault.

Be aware that this is something you'll need to internationalize -
rules for casing are language-and-culture specific.  Seamus Ó hAirt,
for example, not Seamus Ó Hairt.
