New Gem: Avatar

I released Avatar version 0.0.3 today. This gem offers avatar support for a variety of sources. It's not Rails-specific, but to use it in a Rails app, do something like the following.

In app/helpers/people_helper.rb:

class PeopleHelper
  include Avatar::View::ActionViewSupport

  def default_avatar_url(size)
    req = controller.request


<%= avatar_tag(@current_user, :size => 40, :default => default_avatar_url(:small) %>

The default settings will check for a Gravatar for @current_user.email. There are other implementations, including one that works with the file_column plugin. I'll be happy to add more implementations; the project is hosted on GitHub.
