ncurses-ruby 0.9 has been released


What is it

ncurses-ruby is a ruby extension for accessing the ncurses library. 
Ncurses is a library for manipulating character-cell based terminals. 
Compared to other wrappers of curses functionality, ncurses-ruby aims at 
completeness and close resemblance to the C API (a README file explains 
how to map the ncurses C API docs to ncurses-ruby). The panel and form 
extensions to curses are also supported.


What's new

* The forms wrapper was contributed by Simon Kaczor. "form" is a curses
   extension for programming forms, like input fields.
* ncurses-ruby now also works with ncurses-4.2 (an old release from
   1998).
* First release featuring a binary for Sharp Zaurus (arm-linux).
