The RSpec Development Team is pleased to announce the release of RSpec-1.0.3.

== Changes

This is the compatibility release!

* Compatible with autotest!!!! (As of ZenTest 3.6.0 - see below)
* Compatible with edge rails (as of r6825).
* Compatible with jruby (since release 1.0.1)

See http://rspec.rubyforge.org/changes.html for more detail.

== About RSpec

RSpec is a framework which provides programmers with a Domain Specific
Language to describe the behaviour of Ruby code with readable,
executable examples that guide you in the design process and serve
well as both documentation and tests.

== Autotest compatibility

ZenTest-3.6.0 boasts a new autodiscovery and plugin model that other
frameworks can register with and plug into. RSpec-1.0.3 ships with the
necessary plugin code, so all you need to do is download and go:

For Rails apps:

gem install ZenTest --version '>= 3.6.0'
rails myproject
cd myproject
ruby script/plugin install svn://rubyforge.org/var/svn/rspec/tags/CURRENT/rspec
ruby script/plugin install
script/generate rspec

... and off you go

For a non-rails app, you'll need to follow the convention of parallel
lib and spec directories. For example:

gem install ZenTest --version '>= 3.6.0'
gem install rspec --version '>= 1.0.3'
mkdir stuff
cd stuff
mkdir lib
mkdir spec
