+= Rake 0.9.6 Released
+
+Rake version 0.9.6 contains a number of fixes mainly for merging
+Rake into the Ruby source tree and fixing tests.
+
+== Changes
+
+=== New Features (in 0.9.3)
+
+* Multitask tasks now use a thread pool. Use -j to limit the number of
+ available threads.
+
+* Use -m to turn regular tasks into multitasks (use at your own risk).
+
+* You can now do "Rake.add_rakelib 'dir'" in your Rakefile to
+ programatically add rake task libraries.
+
+* You can specific backtrace suppression patterns (see
+ --supress-backtrace)
+
+* Directory tasks can now take prerequisites and actions
+
+* Use --backtrace to request a full backtrace without the task trace.
+
+* You can say "--backtrace=stdout" and "--trace=stdout" to route trace
+ output to standard output rather than standard error.
+
+* Optional 'phony' target (enable with 'require 'rake/phony'") for
+ special purpose builds.
+
+* Task#clear now clears task comments as well as actions and
+ prerequisites. Task#clear_comment will specifically target comments.
+
+* The --all option will force -T and -D to consider all the tasks,
+ with and without descriptions.
+
+=== Bug Fixes (0.9.3)
+
+* Semi-colons in windows rakefile paths now work.
+
+* Improved Control-C support when invoking multiple test suites.
+
+* egrep method now reads files in text mode (better support for
+ Windows)
+
+* Better deprecation line number reporting.
+
+* The -W option now works with all tasks, whether they have a
+ description or not.
+
+* File globs in rake should not be sorted alphabetically, independent
+ of file system and platform.
+
+* Numerous internal improvements.
+
+* Documentation typos and fixes.
+
+=== Bug Fixes (0.9.4)
+
+* Exit status with failing tests is not correctly set to non-zero.
+
+* Simplified syntax for phony task (for older versions of RDoc).
+
+* Stand alone FileList usage gets glob function (without loading in
+ extra dependencies)
+
+=== Bug Fixes (0.9.5)
+
+* --trace and --backtrace no longer swallow following task names.
+
+=== Bug Fixes (0.9.6)
+
+* Better trace output when using a multi-threaded Rakefile.
+* Arg parsing is now consistent for tasks and multitasks.
+* Skip exit code test in versions of Ruby that don't support it well.
+
+Changes for better integration with the Ruby source tree:
+
+* Fix version literal for Ruby source tree build.
+* Better loading of libraries for testing in Ruby build.
+* Use the ruby version provided by Ruby's tests.
+
+== 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://github.com/jimweirich/rake
+Download:: http://rubyforge.org/project/showfiles.php?group_id=50
+GitHub:: git://github.com/jimweirich/rake.git
+
