  7== Changes
  8
  9=== New Features / Enhancements / Bug Fixes in Version 0.9.0
 10
 11* Rake now warns when the deprecated :needs syntax used (and suggests
 12  the proper syntax in the warning).
 13
 14* Moved Rake DSL commands to top level ruby object 'main'.  Rake DSL
 15  commands are no longer private methods in Object. (Suggested by
 16  James M. Lawrence/quix)
 17
 18* Rake now uses case-insensitive comparisons to find the Rakefile on Windows.
 19  Based on patch by Roger Pack.
 20
 21* Rake now requires (instead of loads) files in the test task.  Patch by Cezary
 22  Baginski.
 23
 24* Fixed typos.  Patches by Sean Scot August Moon and R.T. Lechow.
 25
 26* Rake now prints the Rakefile directory only when it's different from the
 27  current directory.  Patch by Alex Chaffee.
 28
 29* Improved rakefile_location discovery on Windows.  Patch by James Tucker.
 30
 31* Rake now recognizes "Windows Server" as a windows system.  Patch by Matthias
 32  LĂźdtke
 33
 34* Rake::RDocTask is deprecated.  Use RDoc::Task from RDoc 2.4.2+ (require
 35  'rdoc/task')
 36
 37* Rake::GemPackageTask is deprecated.  Use Gem::PackageTask (require
 38  'rubygems/package_task')
 39
 40* Rake now outputs various messages to $stderr instead of $stdout.
 41
 42* Rake no longer emits warnings for Config.  Patch by Santiago Pastorino.
 43
 44* Removed Rake's DSL methods from the top level scope.  If you need to
 45  call 'task :xzy' in your code, include Rake::DSL into your class, or
 46  put the code in a Rake::DSL.environment do ... end block.
 47
 48* Split rake.rb into individual files.
 49
 50* Support for the --where (-W) flag for showing where a task is defined.
 51
 52* Fixed quoting in test task.
 53  (http://onestepback.org/redmine/issues/show/44,
 54  http://www.pivotaltracker.com/story/show/1223138)
 55
 56* Fixed the silent option parsing problem.
 57  (http://onestepback.org/redmine/issues/show/47)
 58
 59* Fixed :verbose=>false flag on sh and ruby commands.
 60
 61* Rake command line options may be given by default in a RAKEOPT
 62  environment variable.
 63
 64* Errors in Rake will now display the task invocation chain in effect
 65  at the time of the error.
 66
 67* Accepted change by warnickr to not expand test patterns in shell
 68  (allowing more files in the test suite).
 69
 70* Fixed that file tasks did not perform prereq lookups in scope
 71  (Redmine #57).
 72
 73== What is Rake
 74
 75Rake is a build tool similar to the make program in many ways. But
 76instead of cryptic make recipes, Rake uses standard Ruby code to
 77declare tasks and dependencies. You have the full power of a modern
 78scripting language built right into your build tool.
 79
 80== Availability
 81
 82The easiest way to get and install rake is via RubyGems ...
 83
 84  gem install rake    (you may need root/admin privileges)
 85
 86Otherwise, you can get it from the more traditional places:
 87
 88Home Page:: http://rake.rubyforge.org/
 89Download::  http://rubyforge.org/project/showfiles.php?group_id=50
 90GitHub::    git://github.com/jimweirich/rake.git
