Release Notes: A new method, Search#utf8, allows the user to request conversion of query strings from a given source encoding to UTF-8 prior to sending them to Google. Previous versions of the library had started to fail. It's not clear if changes made to the Google Web API caused this issue. The code has been slightly modified to fix the problem.
Release Notes: The code no longer generates warnings when used with Ruby 1.8.
Release Notes: Google's WSDL file is now utilized, thanks to the addition of a WSDL driver. Methods no longer need to be defined manually, resulting in simpler, briefer code.
Release Notes: Google::Search now deprecates use of the oe and ie parameters, in line with changes made by Google to the Web API on 30th August 2002. If Ruby is run in verbose mode and either of these parameters is used, a warning will be issued.
Release Notes: A minor code cleanup to improve legibility was performed, and some minor bugs in the RD documentation were fixed.
Release Notes: The directoryCategories member of the Struct::Response returned by Search.new is now of type Struct::DirectoryCategory. The directoryName member of the Struct::ResultElement returned by ResultElement.new was renamed to fullViewableName. The directoryEncoding member of the the Struct::ResultElement was renamed to specialEncoding. The class methods Search.query_length_ok?, Search.query_words_ok?, search.query_sites_ok?, Search.query_ok?, and Search.restrict have been added.
Release Notes: This version breaks compatibility with previous implementations of the Search#search method. A Struct::Response is now returned instead of a Google::Search, whose @response attribute contained the Struct::Response. As in 0.2.0, the resultElements member of the Struct::Response is an Array of Struct::ResultElement objects. However, these no longer use the instance variable @attribute. Superfluous class variables used to track the (re)definition of SOAP methods have been removed. Numerous improvements have been made to the documentation.
Release Notes: HTTP proxies are now supported. A warning given by SOAP4R on method redefinition is now averted. The internal structures have been altered, but the calling interfaces remain the same. The documentation has been improved. A new example program (tksearch.rb) is included. The example programs now expect to find the Google key in ~/.google_key.
