Perfection can always be improved: Time for a new gob version.

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 (or higher for some features) 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 2.0.18:

        * Add %ctop{ %} to do what alltop does but only for the C file
        * Buildfixes for Cygwin (Roland Clobus)
        * gob2.m4 exits if gob is not found (fixes ubuntu #317801)
          (Stephen Kitt)
        * Escape minus signs in the webpage and fix some typos (Stephen Kitt)
        * clarify README as to the public domainness of the generated code

Note: I no longer have fedora, so no rpms are built but the specfile is
included. Try it with "rpmbuild -ta gob2-...-tar.gz"

Have fun,

Jiri (George)
