gob2 2.0.12 the "Long time no GOB" release
Posted on: 07/22/2005 06:12 PM
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 2.0.12:
* libglade support (see manpage) (Nicolas Brugier)
* Fixes to property parsing and allow user created
parameters (Jean-Yves Lefort)
* Add support for prealloc and allow bitfields (K. Haley)
* Don't reference TYPE_SELF when generating privates (Big Thor)ftp://ftp.5z.com/pub/gob/ftp://ftp.5z.com/pub/gob/RPMS/http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/GNOME/sources/gob2/2.0/http://www.5z.com/jirka/gob.html
Note: RPMS are built on Fedora Core 2, so your success on other distros or
versions of redhat/fedora may vary.
