= Rake 0.9.3 Released

Rake version 0.9.3 is mainly bug fixes.

== Changes

* The rake test loader now removes arguments it has processed.  Issue #51
* Rake::TaskArguments now responds to #values_at
* RakeFileUtils.verbose_flag = nil silences output the same as 0.8.7
* Rake tests are now directory-independent
* Rake tests are no longer require flexmock
* Commands constant is no longer polluting top level namespace.
* Show only the interesting portion of the backtrace by default (James M. Lawrence).
* Added --reduce-compat option to remove backward compatible DSL hacks (James M. Lawrence).

== 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

otherwise helpful comments.  Thanks to ...

Also, bit thanks to Eric Hodel for assisting with getting this release
out the door (where "assisting" includes, but is not by any means
limited to, "pushing" me to get it done).
