[ANN] mime-types 1.16 Released

Discussion in 'Ruby' started by Austin Ziegler, Mar 2, 2009.

  1. After an excessive amount of time, I've released MIME::Types 1.16. The
    primary purpose of this release is compatibility with Ruby 1.9.1, but I
    haven't ignored the latest IANA registered types. I have also picked up
    a few other types that others submitted as patches and scanned through
    the latest version (1.27) of the Perl MIME::Types library.

    MIME::Types for Ruby allows for the identification of a file's likely
    MIME content type based on the file's filename extension, or provides a
    list of extensions associated with a MIME content type, if known.

    * <http://mime-types.rubyforge.org/>

    MIME::Types for Ruby originally based on and synchronized with the Perl
    version by Mark Overmeer, copyright 2001 - 2009. As of version 1.15, the
    data format for the MIME::Type list has changed and synchronization, if
    it happens, will be sporadic at best. The preferred source of input for
    a MIME::Type is the IANA registered list.

    ## LICENCE NOTES
    MIME::Types is available under Ruby's disjunctive licence with the GNU
    GPL or the Perl Artistic licence. See the file Licence.txt in the
    package for full details.

    ## Requirements and Installation
    MIME::Types has been tested with Ruby 1.8.6, Ruby 1.8.7, Ruby 1.9.1,
    JRuby 1.1.6 (in Ruby 1.8 mode), and MacRuby 0.3.

    MIME::Types can be installed with:

    % ruby setup.rb

    Alternatively, you can use the RubyGems version of MIME::Types available
    as mime-types-1.16.gem from the usual sources.

    Changes:

    ## MIME::Types 1.16
    * Made compatible with Ruby 1.8.6, 1.8.7, and 1.9.1.
    * Switched to the 'hoe' gem system and added a lot of build-time tools.
    * Updated the MIME types to the list based on the values in the Perl library
    version 1.27. Also updated based on external source information and bug
    reports.
    * This is the last planned version of MIME::Types 1.x. Work will be
    starting soon on MIME::Types 2.x with richer data querying mechanisms
    and support for external data sources.
