Gob haters of the world will be happy because 2.0.0 had some somewhat evil
bugs. Fortunately it was in places that people weren't using before
since they weren't documented. Oh well. This release fixes all that.
It just goes to show that I should have written docs before and then people
would have complained earlier. Oh well. If you haven't used the new
properties syntax, you are not really affected, but you should upgrade
since the new properties syntax is really cool.

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, so that you don't have
to port all your gob files to gob2 for now, but you really should as gob2 is
nicer and all that kind of stuff.

Here are the news in 2.0.1 (gob2):

        * Fixed property types for all the types that require an extra
          GObject type
        * Fix object and boxed linking
        * Fixed C++ mode for flags and enum linking
        * Allow comments in property code

Have fun,
