mkdtemp 1.2 released

Version 1.2 of the mkdtemp gem was just released. mkdtemp is a wrapper for the mkdtemp() function in the standard C library, and it provides an easy means of securely creating temporary directories from within Ruby code.

This is a minor feature release which adds the ability to pass a block to the mkdtemp method which allows you do conveniently execute code within the context of the created directory:

# this:            # is a shorthand for:
Dir.mkdtemp do     #   dir = Dir.mkdtemp
  puts Dir.pwd     #   Dir.chdir dir do
end                #     puts Dir.pwd
                   #   end

The full list of changes can be viewed here, and the new version can be installed via sudo gem install mkdtemp. If you find the Gem useful, please consider making a donation via PayPal to
