- Subject: [ANN] mimetypes 1.0.0

I have just finished the first version of `mimetypes`, a Lua library
that guesses MIME types for filenames. For example:
> mimetypes = require 'mimetypes'
> = mimetypes.guess "index.html"
> = mimetypes.guess "mimetypes.lua"
> = mimetypes.guess "report.docx"
> = mimetypes.guess "README"
> = mimetypes.guess "notreal.extension"
You can also have it guess from your own database of MIME types. The
built-in database was mostly obtained from Python 2.7.1's `mimetypes.py`
module, as well as Xavante's MIME types file and Rack::Mime from Rack.
Its home page is at <https://bitbucket.org/leafstorm/lua-mimetypes/>,
and you can download it from the "Downloads" tab there. (If I got a MIME
type wrong, file an issue on the site so as not to flood the list.) All
the documentation is in the README file, and there is also a small test
file you can run.
The rockspec hasn't been published yet, but it should be soon, and once
it is you will be able to run `luarocks install mimetypes` to install it.
Thanks, Matthew Frazier
