    Version 9.0.0 (2006-10-28)

    Ruby-VPI is a Ruby interface to Verilog VPI. It lets you create
    complex Verilog test benches easily and wholly in Ruby.

    Website: http://ruby-vpi.rubyforge.org

    Install: gem install ruby-vpi


    Summary

    This release improves the automated test generator and adds
    new content to the user manual.

    Acknowledgments

    Thanks to Matt Fischler for helping test and debug the
    installation of Ruby-VPI on Windows.

    Notice

    * The command-line options for generate_test.rb have
    changed. Run the command generate_test.rb --help for
    details.

    Details

    * Test runners now attempt to resolve paths in
    SIMULATOR_SOURCES by searching for them within the
    directories specified in SIMULATOR_INCLUDES.

    * Synopsys VCS is now used in a better way (via the -load
    option).
    o The old PLI table file (synopsys_vcs.tab) has been
    removed.
    o The C extension has been revised accordingly.

    * The C extension now compiles without errors in Cygwin.

    * The automated test generator now:
    o Only creates output files when necessary.
    o Updates existing output files using text merging tools
    if possible. (Refer to MERGER in the help information of
    generate_test.rb.)
    o Emits progress information similar to Ruby on Rails.

    * The user manual now:
    o Includes instructions for installing on Windows (via
    Cygwin).
    o Has a recommended software section, with links to text
    merging tools.
    o Uses the term xUnit instead of “unit testâ€.
    o Correctly spells “rSpecâ€.
