I have just released ruby-discid 1.0.0. This libdiscid binding for Ruby is
the successor of mb-discid. As libdiscid has gained quite a few features in
the past I took the opportunity to simplify the API and do some fundamental
changes to ruby-discid.
The most important features are:
* Full support for libdiscid 0.1 to 0.5, including
ISRC and MCN reading and feature detection.
* Uses FFI to load libdiscid, so no compilation is required.
* Support for Ruby 1.8.7 - 2.0, jRuby and Rubinius.
Please see Github for installation and download instructions:
For Ubuntu users there is also a PPA available at:
If you have previously used mb-discid you can continue using it, but you
should consider updating to ruby-discid. The API should be similar and
simple enough to make that a painless process.
