New Releases: LogBuddy 0.5 and CapGun 0.2.4

Hey now, it has been quiet here for too long, so what better way to bring some life back then open source updates?

First, LogBuddy, the little developer tool that could, has been updated to 0.5. What is LogBuddy? LogBuddy is a very small tool that logs the name of the thing your are logging, plus its value. Stop typing puts my_var => #{my_var} while doing ad-hoc debugging. For example, assuming you have a local, an ivar, and a class var called 'a':

d { a }       => a = "foo"
d { @a }      => @a = "my var"
d { @@bar }   => @@bar = "class var!"

There are a few significant changes in this release.

CapGun adds deployment notifications to Capistrano, so you can email blast interested parties on deployments. Version 0.2.4 fixes a bug where notifications would fail on the very first deploy due to a missing REVISION directory. This version also got fixes for Rails 3 using the new ActiveSupport, thanks to Jared Pace for those.
