HighLine 1.0.1 Released
=======================

With this release HighLine now has everything we the developers have  
ever wanted it to have and everything we've seen you the users ask  
for.  Given that, we decided it was time to leave the beta status  
behind and bump the version to 1.0.

In addition to the fun new features listed below, we also fixed all  
known issues.  Keep those reports coming...  We're listening!

What is HighLine?
-----------------

(from the README)

HighLine was designed to ease the tedious tasks of doing console  
input and output with low-level methods like gets() and puts().   
HighLine provides a robust system for requesting data from a user,  
without needing to code all the error checking and validation rules  
and without needing to convert the typed Strings into what your  
program really needs.  Just tell HighLine what you're after, and let  
it do all the work.

What's new in this release?
---------------------------

(highlights from the CHANGELOG)

* Added gather = ... option to question for fetching entire Arrays or
   Hashes filled with answers.  You can set gather to a count of  
answers to
   collect, a String or Regexp matching the end of input, or a Hash  
where each
   key can be used in a new question.
* Added File support to HighLine.ask().  You can specify a directory  
and a
   glob pattern that combine into a list of file choices the user can  
select
   from.  You can choose to receive the user's answer as an open  
filehandle or as
   a Pathname object.
* Added Readline support for history and editing.
* Added tab completion for menu  and file selection selection (requires
   Readline).
* Added a complete help system to HighLine's shell menu creation tools.

Plus documentation and examples for the new features.  We also fixed  
all reported bugs!
