** FOR THE ADVENTUROUS -- FOR TESTING ODYSSEYS ONLY **
Syck 0.50 is here!! Believe me when I say that this is the most
incredible day of your life!! Consider the months I've spent slaving
away, rethinking and reshaping our little YAML engine...
And today, all the tests passed and I rode my speedboat right through a
tunnel, screaming at the top of my lungs.
The new Syck is much faster than before. The following benchmark
illustrates loading and dumping of a 700k file using the Ruby extension.
In my testing, it's common to see a 4x speed increase on outputting YAML.
Although this release is less stable than Syck 0.45, the core of Syck is
fully unit-tested and I am actively working to find and crush memory
leaks and segfaults. If you have the means to assist in this work, I'd
appreciate any stress testing scripts and stacktraces you can contribute.
This release marks the end of major API changes. I don't think anything
will change in syck.h until a 1.0 release. This means the focus can be
on (1) debugging every corner of the library and (2) ensuring
interoperability between the PHP, Python and Ruby extensions.
Many thanks to Tim Parkin for all his work on the Pyrex extension. It's
coming along great and saving tons of time.
Well, good enough. Beaver tales,

>Great work _why! Love the new outboard. BTW, Is she 1.1 sea-faring?
I'm afraid YAML 1.1 is still down the road away, beyond the quivering
green cathedrals. Nothing more that the Python and PHP extensions will
need to stabilize first.
