  1. ncurses-ruby 0.9 has been released


    What is it

    ncurses-ruby is a ruby extension for accessing the ncurses library.
    Ncurses is a library for manipulating character-cell based terminals.
    Compared to other wrappers of curses functionality, ncurses-ruby aims at
    completeness and close resemblance to the C API (a README file explains
    how to map the ncurses C API docs to ncurses-ruby). The panel and form
    extensions to curses are also supported.


    What's new

    * The forms wrapper was contributed by Simon Kaczor. "form" is a curses
    extension for programming forms, like input fields.
    * ncurses-ruby now also works with ncurses-4.2 (an old release from
    1998).
    * First release featuring a binary for Sharp Zaurus (arm-linux).


    Supported Platforms

    curses panel form

    * * * Unix (including cygwin) + Ncurses

    * * Win32 + PDCurses (binary available for ruby-1.8)

    * arm-linux + Ncurses (binary available for ruby-1.6
    and ncurses 4.2 on Sharp Zaurus SL5500 (with original
    ROM)
