Summary: UUID generator, release 1.0.1
Project: Reliable Messaging

UUIDs (Universally Unique Identifiers) are primarily used in distributed applications to generate identifiers that do not conflict.

This UUID generator is based on RFC 4122, and uses the time-based format, allowing for up to 10 million unique identifiers per machine per second.

A 48-bit node identifier prevents identifier conflicts between machines. The setup script automatically discovers a node identifier from one of the network cards MAC address on your machine.

This release introduces a new Gem, separate from the reliable-msg project, for use in other Ruby applications.
