I'm pleased to announce the very first release (v0.1) of RTF-Extensions, a Ruby library that adds a few useful extensions to the excellent Ruby RTF package originally developed by Peter Wood.
RTF-Extensions has two main interests for Ruby developers who write code for generating RTF documents.
- It can handle character strings encoded in UTF-8 and generate RTF documents that preserve those Unicode characters.
- It offers a facility to add hyperlinks to a RTF document.
RTF-Extensions is NOT a replacement for Ruby RTF. It comes as an addition and shall be used on top of the original Ruby RTF.
