rake-compiler version 0.3.1 has been released! * <http://github.com/luislavena/rake-compiler> * <http://rubyforge.org/projects/rake-compiler> = rake-compiler rake-compiler aims to help Gem developers while dealing with Ruby C extensions, simplifiying the code and reducing the duplication. It follows *convention over configuration* and set an standarized structure to build and package C extensions in your gems. This is the result of expriences dealing with several Gems that required native extensions across platforms and different user configurations where details like portability and clarity of code were lacking. == An Overview Let's summarize what rake-compiler provides: * No custom rake tasks required. Less code duplication and errors. * Painlessly build extensions on different platforms (Linux, OSX and Windows). * Allow multiple extensions be compiled inside the same gem. * Mimics RubyGems installation process, so helps as test environment. * Simplify cross platform compilation of extensions (target Windows from Linux). Changes: === 0.3.1 / 2009-01-09 * 2 Minor Enhancements: * Download cross-ruby source code using HTTP instead of FTP. * Disabled Tcl/Tk extension building on cross-ruby (helps with 1.9). * 3 Bug fixes: * Workaround bug introduced by lack of Gem::Specification cloning. Fixes DM LH #757. * Use proper binary extension on OSX (reported by Dirkjan Bussink). * Ensure lib/binary task is defined prior clear of requisites.
