-The MIME::Types project is not dead! The release of MIME::Types 1.15
-marks the last version that was synchronized in any way with the Perl
-MIME::Types list. Future versions of MIME::Types will be synchronized
-only with the IANA type list, but will also add many other features that
-will significantly enhance the functionality and capability of
-MIME::Types for Ruby.
+After an excessive amount of time, I've released MIME::Types 1.16. The
+primary purpose of this release is compatibility with Ruby 1.9.1, but I
+haven't ignored the latest IANA registered types. I have also picked up
+a few other types that others submitted as patches and scanned through
+the latest version (1.27) of the Perl MIME::Types library.
-The main changes made in this version are:
-
- * MIME::Type (an instance of a single type) no longer has a separate
- source file.
- * The amount of meta-data about a MIME::Type has been increased.
- Future versions of MIME::Types will include functionality that
- increases the usability of this metadata.
+This is the last planned release of MIME::Types 1.x. Soon, I will be
+releasing MIME::Types 2.0 with several planned enhancements to the data
+querying and sources used.
= What is MIME::Types for Ruby?
-This allows for the identification of a file's likely MIME content type
-based on the file's filename extension.
+It allows for the identification of a file's likely MIME content type

== Requirements and Installation
-PDF::Writer requires Ruby 1.8.2.
+PDF::Writer has been tested with Ruby 1.8.6, Ruby 1.8.7, Ruby 1.9.1,
+JRuby 1.1.6 (in Ruby 1.8 mode), and MacRuby 0.3.
Once these packages are installed, MIME::Types can be installed with:
% ruby setup.rb
Alternatively, you can use the RubyGems version of MIME::Types available
-as mime-types-1.15.gem from the usual sources.
-
-== MIME::Types 1.15
-* Removed lib/mime/type.rb to form a single MIME::Types database source. It
- is unlikely that one will ever need MIME::Type without MIME::Types.
-* Re-synchronized the MIME type list with the sources, focusing primarily on
- the IANA list.
-* Added more detailed source information for MIME::Type objects.
-* Changed MIME::Types from a module to a class with a default instance. There
- should be no difference in usage.
-* Removed MIME::Types::DATA_VERSION; it is now an attribute on the
- MIME::Types instance.
-* NOTE: Synchronization with the Perl version of MIME::Types is no longer a
- priority as of this release. The data format and information has changed.
