Instead of just hosting the RDoc at sequel.rubyforge.org, have an actual website, based on boof's design for www.ruby-sequel.org. However, drop the Rails project and instead create a plain html site generated with a simple script, a single template, and ERB. Also, add a fifth main feature to the README, showing off the improvements coming in 2.4.0.
For merging the READMEs, I put the model README at the bottom of the core README and used that. For merging the CHANGELOGs, I merged them manually back to 1.4.0, and copied the rest of the model CHANGELOG to the bottom of the file. Most of the Rakefile code was duplicative, but I think I got all tasks except spec_adapters. I figure few people have all 5 adapters necessary to run the adapter specs. I only have 3 of them, so I never used spec_adapters. The specs are still split up so they can be run independently. Additionally, the adapter specs are split off from the core specs, which helps if you want to put Sequel.connect lines in spec_config.rb. The only other spec changes were for path changes. There weren't conflicts merging anything else, IIRC. I hope there is no fallout from this. I haven't noticed any yet, running the specs and the test suites for all of my apps that use Sequel.
…x versions of Postgresql. Fixed Postgres::Database#tables and #locks methods.
… primary key to be added to every table definition. Changed the schema generator to not define a primary key by default. Implemented Dataset#exclude method. Dataset#where and Dataset#exclude can now be used for refining dataset conditions, enabling stuff like posts.where(:title => 'abcdef').exclude(:user_id => 3). Added Dataset#sql as alias to Dataset#select_sql.
…amed Pool#conn_maker to Pool#connection_proc. Added Dataset# method. Refactored Model#find and Model#.
…rt. Added sequel console for quick'n'dirty access to databases. Added support for exclusive ranges (thanks Christian Neukirchen.) Add Dataset#sum method.
…, allowing arrays and ranges, e.g. posts.filter(:stamp => (3.days.ago)..(1.day.ago)), or posts.filter(:category => ['ruby', 'postgres', 'linux']). Added Sequel.open as alias to Sequel.connect.
