Project Release Information
This release is now compatible with Ruby 1.9. The nokogiri XML parser is now the default parser used by the server.
This release added support for the Nokogiri XML library in addition libxml and rexml. The server now uses Ruby on Rails 2.3.11 to keep up with the latest security patches.
This release added support for a detailed_results setting in the client config file, allowing users to log detailed results to a local file in addition to or instead of sending them to the server. A --list-files option was added to the client.
The primary change in this release is the addition of support for an /etc/etch.conf config file to the client, allowing users to configure a number of parameters that were previously either hard-coded or only configurable via command line options.
A bug related to relative paths and the --local option was fixed. An update was made to Rails 2.3.8 and the will_paginate gem.
