tcod-rs version 0.6.0 is out

The Rust bindings for libtcod are now at version 0.6.0 \o/

tcod-rs is a library for writing roguelike (and other ASCII based) games. It provides a character-based drawing interface, bitmap fonts, path finding and field of view and a bunch of other features. It also works on Windows, Mac and Linux.

Notable changes:

We're following semantic versioning, so with 0.6.0 there can still be a significant breakage -- theoretically. However, the main interface seems fairly robust and usable and we do not expect a lot of breaking changes.

To try it out, add tcod = "0.6.0" to the dependencies section of your Cargo.toml.
