RubyLexer version 0.7.7 has been released!

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

RubyLexer is a lexer library for Ruby, written in Ruby. Rubylexer is meant
as a lexer for Ruby that's complete and correct; all legal Ruby
code should be lexed correctly by RubyLexer as well. Just enough parsing
capability is included to give RubyLexer enough context to tokenize correctly
in all cases. (This turned out to be more parsing than I had thought or
wanted to take on at first.) RubyLexer handles the hard things like
complicated strings, the ambiguous nature of some punctuation characters and
keywords in ruby, and distinguishing methods and local variables.

== Changes:

 ### 0.7.7/21dec2009
* 5 Major Enhancements:
  * Got rid of the hacky RuLexer ancestor class. woo-hoo!
  * Input charsets other than 7bit ascii now supported
    * binary (8bit ascii), utf8, and euc now work; sjis does not
  * __FILE__ and __LINE__ now have their correct values attached to them
  * Build scripts completely rewritten; hoe is now gone!
  * Improved ruby 1.9 compatibility (see below)

* 4 Major Bugfixes:
  * Module names may begin with arbitrary expressions
    * but such expressions are always ended by ::
    * even if inside a implicit parens context
    * and positions of whitespace tokens in module header are better tracked
  * Finally learned to disable rdoc for files it dislikes (thanks, Roger!)
  * Rescue in rhs context is always ternary now
    * (this is incorrect if in a multiassign, but redparse will handle that)
  * Parsing of do, comma, and unary star on assign rhs is better now

* 2 Minor Enhancements:
  * Colorizer example
  * Changes to token classes to incorporate modifications made by redparse

* 7 Minor Bugfixes:
  * Newline after = is now soft
  * Fixed type of local var if inside class/method inside def
  * Fixed parsing of shebang line if no args
  * Fixed incorrect offsets in a few obscure cases
  * Don't treat \r as newline in =begin..=end
  * Cleaned up test data
  * Fixed mistypings of local vars in string inclusions

* Improved 1.9 compatibility:
  * code works under 1.9 interpreter
  * stabby blocks
  * __ENCODING__ keyword
  * tolerate ternary : at beginning of line
  * character constants are string, not integer, literals
  * new \u escape sequence allowed in double-quotish strings
  * allow nested () in def param list
  * not is a funclike keyword
  * parens allowed as method name; alias for #call
  * block private locals declared after ; inside block param
  * !, !=, and !~ are methods in 1.9
  * local variables declared by named backreferences in regexps
  * tests for many 1.9 features
