Today I released a new version of the ruby gem to interact with the Salesforce Bulk API.
I decided to go with a different name and introduce some breaking changes.
And here it is: Bulkforce.
The [old gem](old gem) will still be available as a reference and to provide a backwards compatible option for all users out there. New features however will only be introduced in Bulkforce.
Not only did I rename the gem, I also introduced a new feature. The authentication has been overhauled.
Now the constructor takes a hash instead of a list of user, password and security token.
In addition to that, authentication via env variables is possible now as well.
