Hi,

I am happy to announce the first release of Ruby/ZOOM!

Ruby/ZOOM provides a Ruby binding to the Z39.50 Object-Orientation Model
(ZOOM), an abstract object-oriented programming interface to a subset of
the services specified by the Z39.50 standard, also known as the
international standard ISO 23950.

This software is based (and therefore depends) on YAZ, a free-software
implementation of the Z39.50/SRW/SRU standards, but could be easily
ported to any ZOOM compliant implementation.

You can get more information (download link, sample, API reference,
etc...) from the homepage:

        http://ruby-zoom.rubyforge.org/

Enjoy

Laurent
