Wopen3 0.3 released

I’m belatedly announcing the release of version 0.3 of the Wopen3 gem. It was actually released a couple of weeks ago but I somehow overlooked posting an official announcement here.

Wopen3 is a replacement for Open3 in the Ruby standard library. Unlike Open3, Wopen3 does not throw away the exit status of the executed (grandchild) process. Only a child process it spawned and the exit status is returned in $? as normal.

This is a minor feature release which adds a new success? method to the Wopen3::Result instance that is returned by the system method. It’s used as shown here:

result = Wopen3.system('git', 'log')
result.status   # => 0
result.success? # => true
result.stderr   # => ''
result.stdout   # => 'commit 491411b3...'

The full list of changes can be viewed here, and the new version can be installed via sudo gem install wopen3. If you find the Gem useful, please consider making a donation via PayPal to win@wincent.com.
