Rant is a flexible build tool written entirely in Ruby,
similar to Rake.

== What's new in this release?

This is mainly a bugfix release.

* Fix a rule bug where a custom rule task wouldn't find it's
? prerequisites in subdirectories.

* A non-backwards compatible change in the YAML library of Ruby 1.8.3
? and newer causes gems to be non-backwards compatible. The fix for
? backwards compatibility of gems created with RubyPackage is enabled
? for all newer Ruby versions now. (See changes of last Rant release.)

* The new method sys.write_to_binfile. (Kevin Burge's idea.)
