gem install rest-client for new features:
- SSL support
- User/password embedded in the url (e.g. https://joe:firstname.lastname@example.org)
- Subresource nesting with syntax (e.g.
site['posts/1/comments'].get) (more examples)
- Better exception classes with access to the response object and more readable output in irb
Thanks to Pedro Belo and Ardekantur, who contributed most of the new code in this release.
