Do you enjoy warnings? Well too bad, now gob compiles even with very
pedantic warnings set on the gcc command line, even ones as stupid as

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 2.0.9:

        * Lots of fixes for gcc warnings, objects should now compile with
          very pedantic warnings set.

Note: RPMS are built on Fedora Core 2, so your success on other distros or
versions of redhat/fedora may vary.

Have fun,
