ANNOUNCE: gob2 2.0.13 the "Bad bad maintainer" release

From: George <>

Yet again it's been quite long since a release and a number of patches
accumulated over that time, so here goes.

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 2.0.13:

        * --no-touch support to avoid spurious rebuilds (see manpage)
          (Jean-Yves Lefort)
        * abstract class flag support (Jean-Yves Lefort)
        * allow BOXED in signal arguments (see manpage) (Big Thor)
        * fix libglade support (Nicolas Bruguier)

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,
