== Ruport 0.4.4 == The "Hey, I've got a brand new formatting engine" Edition == About == Ruby Reports is a software library that aims to make the task of reporting less tedious and painful. It provides tools for data acquisition, database interaction, formatting, and parsing/munging. == New in this release == Originally was going to fix a bug or two and clean house a bit. The cat dragged in a brand spankin' new extensible format engine. I ported (almost) all of Ruport's Format::Builder functionality over to it, and plan to deprecate the old system within the next two weeks. I also set up an infogami page with some up to date install procedures, some bug reports, some other things, blah blah. Less ascii art of pacman ghosts, more information And for the first time ever, I wrote a real tutorial. It might even be useful. It's for the new engine, which I've given the name Alioth because I am tired of saying Ruport::Format::Engine. But that's just a nickname. Okay? :) Oh yeah... And also, Ruport is now a 2006 Google Summer of Code project. Wheee! Expect releases every 10 days or so for the rest of the summer. == Installing Ruport == it's a gem. it can also be installed via setup.rb detailed instructions available  === SVN tag === svn://rubyforge.org//var/svn/ruport/tags/rel_0_4_4 === Project Download Page === http://rubyforge.org/frs/?group_id=856 === Resources ===  http://reporting.stonecode.org  http://ruport.infogami.com/Formatting_System_HOWTO  http://ruport.infogami.com/Installation Please join the mailing list and bombard me with questions, suggestions, and bug reports.
