Version 0.9.2 (2006-08-26)


    This release beautifies generated tests, adds checks to find
    signal width bugs, and includes a new tool.


  • The test generator now uses ERB templates which ensures nice
    indentation of generated output.

  • The test generator now decouples Ruby-VPI paths from Verilog
    benches via the RUBYLIB environment variable.

  • A tool which converts Verilog headers into Ruby has been added.

  • put_value() now returns the value it puts. Therefore, it is
    easier to chain together a series of assignments:

      foo.intVal = bar.intVal = baz.intVal = 10

  • put_value() now verifies that the value it puts was written
    correctly. This helps to find bugs regarding invalid
    assumptions about the number of bits supported by a signal.

  • The source code is now indented with two spaces instead of one
    tab character.
