    RMagick 2.0.0 is now available at RubyForge
    [http://rubyforge.org/projects/rmagick/]. You can read all about this
    release here: [http://rmagick.rubyforge.org/rmagick2.html]

    You should use RMagick 2 instead of RMagick 1 if

    1) You want to use RMagick with Ruby 1.9.0. RMagick 2 works with 1.9.0.
    RMagick 1 does not.

    2) You want to use new ImageMagick functionality. RMagick 1 maintenance
    is limited to bug fixes. New ImageMagick functionality will appear in
    RMagick 2.

    3) You want to have better control over RMagick's memory usage. RMagick
    2 has two new methods - Image#destroy! and Magick.trace_proc= - that can
    help you manage the memory used by images in your programs.

    You should stick with RMagick 1 if

    1) You want to use older releases of ImageMagick or Ruby.

    2) You want to use RMagick with GraphicsMagick.

    RMagick 2 has different prerequisites and is very slightly incompatible
    with RMagick 1, so be sure to read the web page before you download it.

    The detailed ChangeLog is here
    [http://rubyforge.org/frs/shownotes.php?release_id=17446]

    Please report bugs on RMagick's bug tracker
    [http://rubyforge.org/tracker/?group_id=12]. You can ask questions in
    the RMagick Help Forum [http://rubyforge.org/forum/?group_id=12], or
    contact me directly at rmagick AT rubyforge DOT org.

    Enjoy!
