Hello, friends.

I am glad to announce 0.2.4 release of Cerberus CI tool.

What is Cerberus?
Cerberus is a Continuous Builder software. Cerberus could be 
periodically run from any scheduler and check if application tests were 
broken. If it happened then Cerberus would send notification to 
developers.

There are several CI solutions already present, why do you need to use 
Cerberus?
Main advantages of Cerberus over other solutions are:
  1) Cerberus could be run on any machine not only where SVN repository 
located.
 2) Cerberus works not only for Rails projects, but for any other Ruby 
projects as well as for other platforms (Maven2 for Java)
  3) Cerberus is a multiplatform solution: it runs excellent both on 
*nix and Windows.
  4) Cerberus distributed via RubyGems, so it is very easy to install 
and very easy to update to the latest stable version. Just do 'gem 
install cerberus'
  5) Cerberus very easy to start using. Just type 'cerberus add 
PROJECT_URL|PROJECT_DIR'
 6) Cerberus is lightweight solution: most of the time ruby process even 
not runs - Rake run only in case if changes in project sources were 
find.

What's new in this release?
Version 0.2.4 is a next step in adding new features and making Cerberus 
robust and highly stable solution.

Main improvements are:
* RSS publisher greatly improved.
* Added Rant support (http://make.rubyforge.org/). Amount of code for 
this builder eloquently shows how easy to extend Cerberus for new 
modules. Thanks to Xavier Shay for this improvement.
(If you have ideas or patches with new publishers, builders please send 
it to project maillist)
* Added TLS hack for ActionMailer 
(http://blog.pomozov.info/posts/how-to-send-actionmailer-mails-to-gmailcom.html). 
Now Cerberus able to send mails to Gmail SMTP server without any 
problems.
* Added multithread build for 'buildall' command. Now build goes in 
several threads and finishes much faster.
* Added --force option that would be helpful if you want to rerun 
project tests even if there were no changes in VSC.
  Use 'cerberus build --force my_project'
* Created web-site for Cerberus project. http://cerberus.rubyforge.org/
* From now all builds save log of their build. It is possible to switch 
off by setting in configuration :log/:enable => false in configuration 
file  * Added Maven2 support. Yes, yes you could also use Cerberus for 
your Java projects. (See example of Cerberus work at
