+= Rake 0.9.1 Released
+
+Rake version 0.9.1 has a number of bug fixes and enhancments (see
+below for more details). Additionally, the internals have be slightly
+restructured and improved.
+
+== Changes
+
+Rake 0.9.1 adds back the global DSL methods, but with deprecation
+messages. This allows Rake 0.9.1 to be used with older rakefiles with
+warning messages.
+
+== What is Rake
+
+Rake is a build tool similar to the make program in many ways. But
+instead of cryptic make recipes, Rake uses standard Ruby code to
+declare tasks and dependencies. You have the full power of a modern
+scripting language built right into your build tool.
+
+== Availability
+
+The easiest way to get and install rake is via RubyGems ...
+
+ gem install rake (you may need root/admin privileges)
+
+Otherwise, you can get it from the more traditional places:
+
+Home Page:: http://rake.rubyforge.org/
+Download:: http://rubyforge.org/project/showfiles.php?group_id=50
+GitHub:: git://github.com/jimweirich/rake.git
+
+== Thanks
+
+As usual, it was input from users that drove a alot of these changes. The
+following people either contributed patches, made suggestions or made
+otherwise helpful comments. Thanks to ...
+
+* James M. Lawrence (quix)
+* Roger Pack
+* Cezary Baginski
+* Sean Scot August Moon
+* R.T. Lechow
+* Alex Chaffee
+* James Tucker
+* Matthias Lüdtke
+* Santiago Pastorino
+
+Also, bit thanks to Eric Hodel for assisting with getting this release
+out the door (where "assisting" includes, but is not by any means
+limited to, "pushing" me to get it done).
+
+-- Jim Weirich
