Below is a complete listing of changes for each revision of FasterCSV.
== 1.5.5
* Removed setup.rb due to licensing concerns.
* Updated and clarified Copyright notices.
* Improved stray quoting error message (patch by Edvard Majakari).
* Improved line ending detection algorithm (patch by Alexey Smolianinov).
== 1.5.4
* Improved test coverage for the parser.
* Improved documentation.
* Fixed a bug that prevented <tt>^</tt> from being used as <tt>:quote_char</tt>.
* Switched from abort() to throwing exceptions on Ruby 1.9.
== 1.5.3
* A bug fix from Timothy Elliott to return the new parser to its strict quote
== 1.5.2
* A bug fix to allow IO Exceptions to reach the calling code from Moses Hohman.
* Added support for <tt>:write_headers => false</tt> to Table.to_csv().
== 1.5.1
* A bug fix for deleting blank Table rows from Andy Hartford.
* Added gem build instructions.
== 1.5.0
* The main parser has been rewritten by Timothy Elliott to avoid big input
issues with Ruby 1.8's regex engine. This makes FasterCSV handle more inputs
* FasterCSV will now exit with a notice to upgrade if required in Ruby 1.9.
* Included a missing file so the tests will run in source packages.
== 1.4.0
* Added encoding support patch from Michael Reinsch.
* Improved inspect() messages for better IRb support.
* Fixed header writing bug reported by Dov Murik.
* Use custom separators in parsing header Strings as suggested by Shmulik Regev.
* Added a <tt>:write_headers</tt> option for outputting headers.
* Handle open() calls in binary mode whenever we can to workaround a Windows
issue where line-ending translation can cause an off-by-one error in seeking
back to a non-zero starting position after auto-discovery for
<tt>:row_sep</tt> as suggested by Robert Battle.
* Improved the parser to fail faster when fed some forms of invalid CSV that can
be detected without reading ahead.
* Added a <tt>:field_size_limit</tt> option to control FasterCSV's lookahead and
prevent the parser from biting off more data than it can chew.
== 1.2.3
* Default to the system line ending when passed a GzipWriter object to wrap.
== 1.2.2
* Worked around GzipReader's lack of a seek() method so we could still use
automatic row separator detection with them.
== 1.2.1
* Worked around an odd incompatibility with the Regexps used to remove line
endings in some (seemingly rare) Ruby environments.
* Made FasterCSV::lineno() writer aware.
* Support Hashes in FasterCSV#<<(), by detecting headers when writing.
* Added limited support for switching the quote character.
* Refining Data and DateTime matching for built-in convertors.
== 1.2.0
* Added the FasterCSV::table() shortcut.
== 1.1.1
* Added a <tt>:force_quotes</tt> output option.
== 1.1.0
* Added empty?(), length(), and size() methods to FasterCSV::Row and
* Cleaned up bug fix regression tests.
* Fixed bug causing Arrays to be returned for blank rows when header processing
is active.
* Added a <tt>:skip_blanks</tt> option for ignoring empty rows.
== 1.0.0
* Fixed FasterCSV.rewind() to reset the FasterCSV.lineno() counter.
* Fixed FasterCSV.rewind() to reset the header processing.
* Fixed documentation typos.
* Switched STDOUT and STDERR usage to $stdout and $stderr where appropriate.
* Added FasterCSV::Row.==().
* Enhanced FasterCSV::Row.fields() to support Ranges, even for headers.
* The slurping methods now return the new FasterCSV::Table objects.
* Fixed parser so multibyte <tt>:col_sep</tt> works now.
* Added a few examples for usage.
== 0.2.1
* Removed autorequire from GemSpec.
* Made Rakefile VERSION aware.
* General Rakefile cleanup.
== 0.2.0
* Added VERSION constant.
* Significantly improved test speed.
* Worked around Date::parse() bug so tests will pass on Windows.
* Documented test procedure.
* Made FasterCSV.lineno() CSV aware.
* Added line numbers to MalformedCSVError messages.
* <tt>:headers</tt> can now be set to an Array of headers to use.
* <tt>:headers</tt> can now be set to an external CSV String of headers to use.
* Added an <tt>:unconverted_fields</tt> options, so those can be returned
when needed.
* Provided support for the serialization of custom Ruby objects using CSV.
* Added CSV drop-in interface.
* Added header information to FieldInfo Struct for conversions by header.
* Added an alias to support <tt>require "fastercsv"</tt>.
* Added FCSV alias for FasterCSV.
* Added FasterCSV::instance() and FasterCSV()/FCSV() shortcuts for easy output.
== 0.1.9
* Fixing the require "English" bug.
== 0.1.8
* Converted FasterCSV.filter() to use ARGF for input.
* Made FasterCSV.<<() aware of FasterCSV::Row objects.
* Switched header rows to include the unconverted headers as fields.
* Rescued IOError when trying to auto detect a line-ending on an output stream
and used the default system line-ending.
* Added FasterCSV::Row.header_row?() and FasterCSV::Row.field_row?().
== 0.1.6
* Began using a forked development/stable versioning system.
* Reorganized initialization code for easier additions and maintenance.
* Added a check for unknown options. Exceptions will now be thrown for them.
* Added built-in and custom data converters. Built-in handle numbers and dates.
* Added Array#to_csv and String#parse_csv. Both accept normal options.
* Project moved to RubyForge Subversion.
* Added auto-discovery for <tt>:row_sep</tt> (now the default).
* Added FasterCSV::filter() for easy Unix-like CSV filters.
* Added support for accessing fields by headers.
* Headers can have their own converters.
* Headers can be skipped or returned as needed.
* FasterCSV::Row allows index or header access while retaining order and
allowing for duplicate headers.
