gob2 2.0.10 has been released

Given the fact that I'm not really working on gob much lately there seems to be releases all the time. Lots of fixes and new features mainly by other people.

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 2.0.10:

* Support for overriding properties (Jean-Yves Lefort)
* Some M4 fixage with respect to NOINSTGOB (K. Haley)
* Make the private structure allocation play nice with glib (K. Haley)
* Add --file-sep=c option to allow changing the file separator character (Pierre Gay)
* Fix C++ compilation of linked POINTER types by casting properly (Frank Lichtenheld) debian bug #270546
* Always add string.h as it was missing sometimes when memset was used
* In C++ mode cast the destroywith/unrefwith function with reinterpret_cast to avoid C++ nonsense (should fix compilation with gcc 3.4 I think)
* Update the docs
