Ron version 0.1.2 has been released!

 * http://github.com/coatl/ron

Well, who needed another serialization format? Not me, but that's
what I've made. Ruby Object Notation (Ron) is a textual format for
the representation of Ruby data structures. It's somewhat like
YAML, XML, or (most of all) JSON. However, since it is defined
entirely within and as a subset of Ruby, it has the slick
property that Ron expressions are legal Ruby. Thus it is very
like JSON, except that it's Ruby-centered instead of being
JavaScript-centered.

Another way to look at Ron is as a purely declarative language
for creating (almost) any type of Ruby data structure.

Installation:
Use this command to install the gem:
  gem install Ron
or download the tarball from rubyforge:

    * (but not Recursive, which is an artifact of using ron)
  * single quote and backslash now handled right in String
  * all significant digits now preserved in Float (really)
  * many small improvements to object graph copying (see below)
  * ported to MRI 1.9

* 2 Minor Bugfixes:
  * preserve classes of descendants Regexp, Range, Array and Hash
  * many changes to tests to improve coverage and correctness
    * also, tests now work around bugs in yaml

* 1 Minor Enhancement:
  * reworked build/gem scripts

* Improvements to object graph copying:
  * depth-first copying is now available
  * call may pass in a hash of objects to replace
  * replacements when parent is nil or false are now an error
  * protect against changes to hash, set, or array during traversal
  * avoid inf-loop if replacing item with many items
  * now possible to replace an object with another that contains the first
  * in depth_graphcopy, delay all changes til right before the end
