-= Rake 0.9.0 Released
-
-Rake version 0.9.0 has a number of bug fixes and enhancments (see
-below for more details). Additionally, the internals have be slightly
-restructured and improved.
-
-== Changes
-
-=== New Features / Enhancements / Bug Fixes in Version 0.9.0
-
-* Rake now warns when the deprecated :needs syntax used (and suggests
- the proper syntax in the warning).
-
-* Moved Rake DSL commands to top level ruby object 'main'. Rake DSL
- commands are no longer private methods in Object. (Suggested by
- James M. Lawrence/quix)
-
-* Rake now uses case-insensitive comparisons to find the Rakefile on Windows.
- Based on patch by Roger Pack.
-
-* Rake now requires (instead of loads) files in the test task. Patch by Cezary
- Baginski.
-
-* Fixed typos. Patches by Sean Scot August Moon and R.T. Lechow.
-
-* Rake now prints the Rakefile directory only when it's different from the
- current directory. Patch by Alex Chaffee.
-
-* Improved rakefile_location discovery on Windows. Patch by James Tucker.
-
-* Rake now recognizes "Windows Server" as a windows system. Patch by Matthias
- Lüdtke
-
-* Rake::RDocTask is deprecated. Use RDoc::Task from RDoc 2.4.2+ (require
- 'rdoc/task')
-
-* Rake::GemPackageTask is deprecated. Use Gem::PackageTask (require
- 'rubygems/package_task')
-
-* Rake now outputs various messages to $stderr instead of $stdout.
-
-* Rake no longer emits warnings for Config. Patch by Santiago Pastorino.
-
-* Removed Rake's DSL methods from the top level scope. If you need to
- call 'task :xzy' in your code, include Rake::DSL into your class, or
- put the code in a Rake::DSL.environment do ... end block.
-
-* Split rake.rb into individual files.
-
-* Support for the --where (-W) flag for showing where a task is defined.
-
-* Fixed quoting in test task.
- (http://onestepback.org/redmine/issues/show/44,
- http://www.pivotaltracker.com/story/show/1223138)
-
-* Fixed the silent option parsing problem.
- (http://onestepback.org/redmine/issues/show/47)
-
-* Fixed :verbose=>false flag on sh and ruby commands.
-
-* Rake command line options may be given by default in a RAKEOPT
- environment variable.
-
-* Errors in Rake will now display the task invocation chain in effect
- at the time of the error.
-
-* Accepted change by warnickr to not expand test patterns in shell
- (allowing more files in the test suite).
-
-* Fixed that file tasks did not perform prereq lookups in scope
- (Redmine #57).

-== What is Rake
-
-Rake is a build tool similar to the make program in many ways. But
-instead of cryptic make recipes, Rake uses standard Ruby code to
-declare tasks and dependencies. You have the full power of a modern
-scripting language built right into your build tool.
-
-== Availability
-
-The easiest way to get and install rake is via RubyGems ...
-
- gem install rake (you may need root/admin privileges)
-
-Otherwise, you can get it from the more traditional places:
-
-Home Page:: http://rake.rubyforge.org/
-Download:: http://rubyforge.org/project/showfiles.php?group_id=50
-GitHub:: git://github.com/jimweirich/rake.git
-
