Notes:

Release Name: fractals-1.2.1

Notes:
Fractals is a library for creating fractal images in your Ruby programs. It
currently renders the Burning Ship, Julia Set, Mandelbrot, and Newton fractals
using the Escape Time or Normalized Iteration Count algorithm. The Themes
module contains a few predefined coloring palettes, but the Fractal type will
also accept any user-defined algorithm or theme.

Installation:
  sudo gem install fractals

Installing from source:
  svn checkout http://svn.ryanbaxter.net/fractals/tags/release-1.2.1 fractals-1.2.1
  cd fractals-1.2.1
  rake install

*Be sure to install the proper dependencies before using the RMagick or JRuby renderers.

Using Fractals:
  require 'rubygems'
  require 'fractals'

  mandelbrot = Fractals::Mandelbrot.new
  mandelbrot.write

Examples can be found in the examples.rb file.
