Hi,

I am happy to announce the release of Gosu 0.7.4, which is already  
available via 'gem install gosu' on Mac OS X and Windows, including  
the CptnRuby sample game previously not bundled with the gem.  
Information, documentation, non-gem-downloads and a source release  
for Linux can be found on:

Gosu is a 2D game development library designed from the ground up  
around 3D accelerated hardware, yet also provides classes for sound  
effects, music as well as keyboard, mouse and gamepad input. The  
library goes to great lengths to abstract recurring annoyances away  
and to hide them behind clean, object-oriented interfaces.

The library has steadily evolved since its inception (2001), and has  
been referenced on this list for a few times. However, this is the  
first official announcement, so feedback is of course more than  
appreciated.

Gosu 0.7.4 fixes the following bugs:
* Exceptions can't terminate Ruby anymore (SWIG wrapping oversight in  
0.7.3)
* Improved support for some gamepads on OS X.
