|| ||ANNOUNCE: gob2 2.0.12 the "Long time no GOB" release|
|| ||Fri, 22 Jul 2005 13:21:22 -0700|
It's been quite long since a release and a number of patches accumulated
over that time, so here goes.
So what is this gob thing? Well besides being the cure for cancer, it also
generates GObjects (or GTK+ objects). GOB2 is a replacement for the version
1 GOB, that was for GTK+ 1.x mostly. GOB2 can handle pretty much most of
the GObject features. At least most of the ones that anyone will ever use.
It only requires GLib 2.0 and can generate arbitrary GObjects. You can have
both versions installed at the same time if you wish, but if anyone is still
using gob version 1 and GTK+ 1.x, they should get their head examined.
Here are the news in 2.0.12:
* libglade support (see manpage) (Nicolas Brugier)
* Fixes to property parsing and allow user created
parameters (Jean-Yves Lefort)
* Add support for prealloc and allow bitfields (K. Haley)
* Don't reference TYPE_SELF when generating privates (Big Thor)
Note: RPMS are built on Fedora Core 2, so your success on other distros or
versions of redhat/fedora may vary.
If I had my life to live over again, I'd be a plumber.
