ANNOUNCE: GOB (GTK+ object builder) 1.0.2 released

What is GOB:

Very simple preprocessor for making GTK+ objects with inline C code so that
generated files are not edited. Syntax is inspired by Java and yacc or lex.
The implementation is intentionally kept simple, and no C code parsing is
done. Besides that, it's really cool and you should use it and stuff.

This release changes the behaviour of "stringlink". The correct behaviour
here is to g_strdup the string when getting the argument. This was not done
before. Thus code that thinks it's getting an internal pointer will now
leak. I advise everyone to upgrade and require 1.0.2. If you don't use
"stringlink" for string arguments, then you're not really affected.

What's new in 1.0.2:

        * Fix "const" handeling
        * Allow use of chunks for new object allocation (Bas van der Linden)
        * Add __GOB_FUNCTION__ define for each function (Bas van der Linden)
        * Add --always-private-struct option
        * stringlink strdups on get
        * Minor fixes

Where to get it:

        * (tarballs)
        * (redhat packages)
        * (debian packages)
          Debian packages will be available soon!

There is also discussion mailing for gob, to subscribe send mail to with the subject of "subscribe gob-list".
