* Improved Rakefile case insensitivity testing (patch from Luis

  supplied by James Tucker). Rake no long aborts if it can't find the

* Added fix to handle ruby installations in directories with spaces in
  their name.  

== Version 0.8.2

* Fixed bug in package task so that it will include the subdir
  directory in the package for testing. (Bug found by Adam Majer)

* Added ENV var to rakefile to prevent OS X from including extended
  attribute junk in a tar file. (Bug found by Adam Majer)

* Fixed filename dependency order bug in test_inspect_pending and
  test_to_s_pending. (Bug found by Adam Majer)

* Fixed bug with rules involving multiple source (Patch supplied by
  Emanuel Indermühle)

* Switched from getoptlong to optparse (patches supplied by Edwin

  and freeze.

* Added the ability to reenable a task to be invoked a second time.

* Changed RDoc test task to have no default template. This makes it

  supplied by Ittay Dror)

  file task names. (Patch supplied by Ittay Dror)

  :with_defaults method. (Idea for default argument merging supplied
  by (Adam Q. Salter)

  However, if RAKE_COLUMNS is explicitly set, it will be honored in
  any case. (Patch provided by Gavin Stark).

  Redheendran for spending a good part of the afternoon at the
  Lonestar Ruby Conference to help me work out these issues.

* Make FileUtils methods private at the top level module to avoid
  accidental method leaking into other objects.
* Added test loader option to test task.  "testrb" is no longer the
  default test loader.  It is now eating syntax errors that should
  halt the unit tests.
* Revamped FileList so that it works more like and array (addressed
  flatten bug).  Added many tests around file list.
* Added +ext+ method to both String and FileList.

      puts "Program returned #{res.exitstatus}" if ! ok

== Version 0.4.9

* Switched to Jamis Buck's RDoc template.

  using the built-in test task macros because the rake runtime is no
  longer needed.

  Rakefile by referencing ENV['VAR'].
