-Easily merge, compress, cache, and version your JavaScript
-and CSS Stylesheets with Ruby on Rails!
+JavaScript and CSS Asset Compression for Production Rails Apps
== Description
-When running in production, instead of sending down a dozen
-javascript and css files full of formatting and comments,
-this plugin allows you to merge and compress javascript down
-into one or more files, thus saving download time for your users.
+When it comes time to deploy your new web application, instead of
+sending down a dozen javascript and css files full of formatting
+and comments, this Rails plugin makes it simple to merge and
+compress JavaScript and CSS down into one or more files, increasing
+speed and saving bandwidth.
-But when in development, it would be nice to use the formatted,
-commented and logically separated versions for ease of
-development and debugging.
+When in development, it allows you to use your original versions
+and retain formatting and comments for readability and debugging.
-This plugin makes it easy to do both.
+Because not all browsers will dependably cache javascript and css
+files with query string parameters, AssetPackager writes a timestamp
+or subversion revision stamp (if available) into the merged file names.
+Therefore files are correctly cached by the browser AND your users
+always get the latest version when you re-deploy.

+This code is released under the MIT license (like Ruby). You�re free
+to rip it up, enhance it, etc. And if you make any enhancements,
+I�d like to know so I can add them back in. Thanks!
