Ruby/DBI 0.1.0: Not Dead Yet
After a long, deep slumber of more than 18 months, Ruby/DBI awakens and lumbers forward into the countryside. Rise, Ruby/DBI, rise! Strike terror deep in the hearts of Rubyists everywhere! Ahem.
Michael Neumann has handed off the reins to Daniel Berger, Kirk Haines, Patrick May, and myself. This first release is fairly modest, cleaning up a few small bugs and doing lots of behind-the-scenese reorganization.
Please note that 0.1.0 is only a development release, the first of hopefully many as we move towards a bug-free production release. 0.1.0 may contain new and differently irritating bugs than the previous release, 0.0.23.
We’ve got plenty of plans for Ruby-DBI. First and foremost in my mind is the need for stupidly easy installation and configuration, a task that will require extensive coordination among the scattered tribe of Rubyists who have intrepidly written database drivers.
But first, we have to clean out all those pesky old bugs, and try not to create new ones. So if you want to help out, you could download DBI 0.1.0 and give it a spin, and report bugs.
