RubyInline version 3.4.0 has been released!

   http://rubyforge.org/projects/rubyinline/

** DESCRIPTION:

Ruby Inline is an analog to Perl's Inline::C. Out of the box, it
allows you to embed C/++ external module code in your ruby script
directly. By writing simple builder classes, you can teach how to cope
with new languages (fortran, perl, whatever). The code is compiled and
run on the fly when needed.

Using the package_inline tool Inline now allows you to package up
your inlined object code for distribution to systems without a
compiler (read: windows)!

** FEATURES/PROBLEMS:

+ Quick and easy inlining of your C or C++ code embedded in your ruby  
script.
+ Extendable to work with other languages.
+ Automatic conversion between ruby and C basic types
     + char, unsigned, unsigned int, char *, int, long, unsigned long
+ inline_c_raw exists for when the automatic conversion isn't  
sufficient.
+ Only recompiles if the inlined code has changed.
+ Pretends to be secure.
+ Only requires standard ruby libraries, nothing extra to download.
+ Can generate a basic Rakefile and package up built extensions for  
distribution.

Changes:

+ 2 minor enhancement
     + Changed inline to take the language and a hash of options.
         + Still backwards compatible, for now, and emits a warning.
     + Options are available via the builder passed to your block.
+ 2 bug fixes
     + Modified caller discovery, yet again, due to changes in ruby  
1.8.3.
     + More compatible and clean with non-gems systems.
