Did you know flex is on crack? Yes it is. And now you too can enjoy more
crack then with the other leading brand of lex. Yes, you can install new
flex and enjoy new crack and still be able to compile the wholesome family
goodness of gob. Gob be praised!

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 2.0.5 (gob2):

        * Allow compilation with newer flex (tested with both 2.5.4a and
        * Minor doc update
        * Minor build fixes

Note: RPMS are built on RH9, so you success on other distros or versions
of redhat may vary.

Have fun,
