History[edit]

Requirements[edit]

  • Ruby 1.8.4+
  • RubyGems 0.8+
  • Rails 1.2.3
  • MySQL

Squib 0.3.6 was released on Dec 20th 2005. There was a 0.4 branch intended to support multiple weblogs that was eventually abandoned. Squib 0.5 is the current stable release and was released in 2006 containing a few fixes and improvements to the 0.3 release.
