                           Inochi 1.0.0

               Gives life to RubyGems-based software

                http://snk.tuxfamily.org/lib/inochi

   Inochi is an infrastructure for [1]RubyGems-based software
   projects that encourages good documentation and reduces
   programming effort by automating common tasks.

Version 1.0.0 (2009-05-03)

   This release allows your gems to not depend on Inochi, lets
   you choose which unit testing library to use, adds new
   utility libraries and rake tasks, and fixes some bugs.

   Incompatible changes

     * Your program is no longer halted by Inochi.init() and
       Inochi.rake() if gem dependencies are not satified. A
       warning is issued instead.

     * The project_summary and project_history nodes, which are
       provided by Inochi.book() to the user manual, have been
       renamed to project and "history" respectively.

     * ERBook 7.0.0 is now used for generating the user manual.
       This is a major step up from the previous version, and so
       it has incompatible changes. See its release notes for
       details.

     * [2]SDoc is now used to generate API documentation instead
       of [3]YARD. If you link to particular classes or methods
       in the generated API documentation, be sure to update
       your link addresses!

     * Minitest is no longer the default testing library. You
       must specify which testing library you want to use via
       the :test_with option of the Inochi.rake() method. See
       [4]Test execution for details.

     * The "pak" rake task, which is provided by Inochi.rake(),
       has been renamed to "gem".

   New features

     * Add :inochi_consumer and :inochi_producer options to
       Inochi.rake() which allows you to avoid having Inochi as
       a runtime and development dependency, respectively, for
       your project's gem.
       This is useful if you just want to use Inochi facilities
       for building a gem for a pure Ruby library that does not
       have any need for Inochi's runtime convenience
       facilities.

     * Add :develop option for Inochi.init() which lets you
       specify RubyGems as development dependencies in the same
       way as the :require option.

     * Add "lint" rake task which reports [5]code quality
       statistics.

     * Add "test:cov" rake task which reports code coverage
       statistics.

     * Add "test:ruby" task which runs all tests with
       [6]multiruby.

     * Add `rake opts=' environment variable, which lets you
       specify command-line arguments directly to the Ruby
       interpreter, for all test* rake tasks.

     * Add inochi/util/combo combinatorics library for
       enumerations, permutations, and combinations which are
       all useful in exhaustive brute-force unit testing.

     * Add inochi/util/tempdir library which really should be in
       the Ruby standard library.

   Bug fixes

     * The "enable email notification" checkbox was not
       activated properly when posting announcement to ruby-talk
       mailing list via Ruby-Forum.

     * Mark gems needed by Inochi.rake() as development
       dependencies.
       A user would now have to install Inochi using
gem install --development
       to install all these gems. This also solves the recursive
       dependency problem between Inochi and ERBook.

     * Set executable in gem specification only if it exists.

     * Fix parsing of stack trace in Ruby 1.9.

   Housekeeping

     * Write contributor names in CREDITS file instead of in the
       user manual.

     * Use completely lowercase name for Rakefile.

     * Add copyright statement at the top of every source file.
