Zee 0.7 is out!

I hope it will be available as a rockspec soon from www.luarocks.org, but in the meantime you can go there and install LuaRocks (taking care to ./configure --lua-version=5.2), then run something like:

git clone https://github.com/rrthomas/zee.git
cd zee
luarocks install stdlib
luarocks install luaposix
luarocks install lrexlib-gnu # you better be on a GNU system
luarocks install alien
./configure # with appropriate flags for your Lua installation
make && make install

On second thoughts, you may want to wait for the rock. But I will be happy to help anyone with the above steps, especially they're willing to help get a publishable recipe for developers. (Luarocks supports installation directly from VCSes, but that won't currently work with Zee because the rockspec is not checked in but generated from source, and it needs to run Zee in order to generate it.)

That's it for planned Zee development for now, but I do intend both to simplify the build system (possibly avoiding the use of autotools altogether) and start adding some Zee-specific functionality, hopefully before the end of the year.

Future Zee news will of course go only to the Zee list unless it happens once more to concern Zile for some reason!
