[ANN] Ruby/Cares 0.1.0


I've just released Ruby/Cares 0.1.0. This is a C extension wrapping the
c-ares (http://daniel.haxx.se/projects/c-ares/) asynchronous DNS

This is a preliminary release intended for getting feedback on the
interfaces and on future functionality that could be implemented.

To install it:

  # gem install ruby-cares

For manual installation, fetch the tarball on rubyforge and check the
README file.

For documentation, see the project's homepage:


I'd like to thank Guy Decoux, Nobu Nakada, Francis Cianfrocca and Kent
Sibilev for helping me out with my newbie questions about C extensions
on ruby-talk.
