    Ruby Facets, v0.6.1

    Fantastic Atomic Core Extensions


    ABSTRACT: Ruby Facets is a cornicopia of core extensions for the Ruby
    programming language. It is unique by virtue of the atomicity of its
    design. Methods are stored in their own files, allowing for extremely
    granular control of requirements. Ruby Facets is a subproject of Ruby
    Calibre.

    Happy New Year,

    A new version of Ruby Facets is out: 0.6.1. This version updates the
    common "mix" files to be insync with the previous 0.6 updates (they were
    lagging behind at version 0.5). Not to be confused with a _mixin_, a mix
    simply bundles a group of atomic requires into single file. The most
    common are for the class and modules themselves. For example:

    require 'facet/string'

    This mix requires all String facets considerd most commonly useful.

    Also added are a few new extra mixes: 'facet/rand' and
    'facet/nil-as-emptiness'. 'rand' requires an assortment of random
    related methods. 'nil-as-emptiness' makes NilClass return nil to a
    number of common methods, like #empty? and #[].

    If you are interested in contributing to a project but have little time
    to spare, helping with Facets may be a perfect project. There are still
    plenty of light-weight tasks to do: improve documentation, improve the
    tests and write a few yet missing, improve the rohbustness of methods
    themselves, including exceptional error catching, and of course there's
    plenty of room for adding new goodies, too. If you have any extension
    methods that you use and think may be of benefit to others, please let
    us know. We are quite open to the many possibilities.

    And, of course, please let us know if you come across any bugs.

    You can contact us either privately or via ruby-talk, or through the new
    calibre-cuts mailing-list:

    Thanks, T.
