ANN: libRUIN project development release 0.1.3

Hi everyone,
I am pleased to announce that the libRUIN project has made a new
formal development release, version 0.1.3.

Our project description, from Savannah: libRUIN (Renderer for User
Interfaces in Ncurses) is a rendering library for various XML-based
user interface markup languages (such as Mozilla XUL), using the
Ncurses terminal control library as a rendering target. GNU Guile and
the SDOM Scheme module are used as the "glue" that manages user input
and event handling. An application programmer passes an XML document
(including, potentially, a set of CSS stylesheets) and an Ncurses
WINDOW structure, and libRUIN paints the WINDOW according to the
markup and CSS; the programmer may subsequently pass Ncurses-style
input strings to that WINDOW via libRUIN, and libRUIN will handle the
resulting event flows.

Don't be fooled by the miniscule version bump -- this release includes
significant improvements over 0.1.2, including, but not limited to:
Improved text layout and rendering, Mac OS X support, numerous CSS
inheritance fixes, support for CSS pseudo-classes, and proper handling
for terminal resizing.  There's also an expanded suite of examples
that demonstrate libRUIN's XHTML rendering capabilities.  See the NEWS
file and the ChangeLogs included in the distribution for a detailed
list of changes.

For more information, swing by http://www.nongnu.org/libruin or check
