Rainbows! 4.6.2 - see you on the other side
This release updates documentation to reflect the migration of the
mailing list to a new public-inbox[1] instance.  This is necessary
due to the impending RubyForge shutdown on May 15, 2014.

The public-inbox address is: rainbows-public@bogomips.org
(no subscription required, plain text only)
ssoma[2] git archives: git://bogomips.org/rainbows-public
browser-friendly archives: http://bogomips.org/rainbows-public/

As evidenced by our git history, Rainbows! development has stagnated
over the years.  Rainbows! was designed to be an unopinionated
exploration into various concurrency options offered in the Ruby
ecosystem.

In recent years, I have come to favor the one-shot-based,
worst-of-all-worlds design of yahns: http://yahns.yhbt.net/README
Without the exploration from Rainbows!, yahns may not exist today.

Disclaimer: Rainbows! has always been intolerant of buggy/broken code in
libraries and apps.  yahns is even less tolerant of buggy/broken code,
as the SIGKILL-based timeout mechanism inherited unicorn is completely
gone. On the other hand, yahns has reasonable defaults so you do not
have to read documentation to configure it.

[1] policy: http://public-inbox.org/ - git://80x24.org/public-inbox
    an "archives first" approach to mailing lists
[2] mechanism: http://ssoma.public-inbox.org/ - git://80x24.org/ssoma
    some sort of mail archiver (using git)
