rubypython version 0.5.1 has been released!

RubyPython is a bridge between the Ruby and Python interpreters. It embeds =
a
running Python interpreter in the Ruby application's process using FFI and
provides a means for wrapping, converting, and calling Python objects and
methods.

RubyPython uses FFI to marshal the data between the Ruby and Python VMs and
make Python calls. You can:

* Inherit from Python classes.
* Configure callbacks from Python.
* Run Python generators (on Ruby 1.9.2 or later).

Changes:

### 0.5.1 / 2011-03-17
* Major Enhancements:
  * Procs and methods can be passed to Python. [raineszm]
  * Python to Ruby inheritance: A Ruby class can inherit from a Python clas=
s
    (EXPERIMENTAL). [steeve]
  * The Python library can now be reloaded (EXPERIMENTAL). There is a good
    chance of a segfault if this is used with a native extension. [raineszm=
]
  * Python functions and methods can be called with a terminal exclamation
    point to enable keyword argument processing in Python (EXPERIMENTAL). [=
tmm1]
* Minor Enhancements:
  * Improved Python generator support. [steeve]
  * PythonError now inherits from RuntimeError. [halostatue]
  * Added a Py_REFCNT macro for debugging reference counting. [tmm1]
* Changes:
  * Moved to RSpec2. [halostatue]
  * Moved Rakefile to hoe; added autotest. [halostatue]
* Bug Fixes:
  * Fixed a reference counting bug that could crash the Python VM. [steeve]
  * Fixed a memory leak/reference counting bug related to method invocation
    (when turning the argument list into a tuple, PyList_SetItem steals
    references). Depends on FFI 1.0.7 (or higher) with modifications to
    aggressively free temporary Python objects created. [tmm1]
  * Restored Ruby 1.8.7 compatibility where possible. [halostatue]
  * Fixed FFI loader to be more robust and do more through FFI. [halostatue=
]
  * Fixed documentation errors. [halostatue]
* Project Management:
  * Rupy has been merged back into RubyPython.
  * Made the project website on RubyForge generatable from the readme and a
    template. Adopted the 960 grid system and modern CSS techniques.
  * Added a contributors document.
