[ANN] MIME::Types 1.13

Discussion in 'Ruby' started by Austin Ziegler, Apr 16, 2004.

  1. I am pleased to announce the release of MIME::Types 1.13.

    MIME::Types is a library to make it easy to discover the MIME Content-Type
    based on the filename (extension) provided, similar to the results that one
    would get from mailcap discovery in other languages.

    MIME::Types is originally based on, and is generally kept in sync with, the
    Perl version of the same name.

    In MIME::Types 1.13, there have been a few API changes; one of the changes
    is incompatible with previous versions. This will only affect users of the
    library who have created custom MIME Content-Type objects.

    Future versions of MIME::Types will see other changes, but there are
    discussions surrounding the exact changes that will be made, as there are
    still a number of MIME Content-Types present that are not IANA-registered
    and are not being handled properly because of the source data. There are
    ways that this can be dealt with, but I am attempting to coordinate with
    Mark Overmeer, the author of Perl's MIME::Types.
