Oniguruma regular expression library bindings for Ruby.

This is the initial release of these bindings, which allow developers
to use the powerful features of Oniguruma (named groups, look-behinds,
etc.) without the need to upgrado to Ruby 1.9 or to patch and recompile
the stable version.

= Web page

= Features:

* Increased performance.
* Same interface than standard Regexp class.
* Support for named groups, look-ahead, look-behind
* And other cool features!

== 0.9.0 / 2007-03-19

* 1 major enhancement
* Birthday!

We startet yesterday in the german Ruby-Forum to test the software. Due to
compiler problems on Windows (I don't have the C-compiler which is necessary for
the OneClickInstaller-Version) the tests were done by two persons on Mac OS 10.4
and Linux, both with same result.

The basic problem we encountered was, that an Oniguruma-5 version must be
available. The binding cannot be compiled for Oniguruma-4 and Oniguruma-2,
because the associated "oniguruma.h" does not contain definitions which are
required. This does not match the documentation, which claims workability for
Oniguruma versions 2 and 4.

The library should support Oniguruma-4 versions, because they will be used in
Ruby, starting with version 1.9, while Oniguruma-5 is not related to Ruby. If
one wants to use the pattern matching capabilities of Ruby 1.9, but still have
problems with libraries, that are not yet ported to Ruby 1.9, needs the regular
expression engine of Ruby 1.9 in Ruby 1.8 to avoid later porting problems for
the own software.
