gob2 2.0.14 has been released
So quite apparently whenever a release is done before I go off somewhere for a week or two a stupid bug appears. So this release has NO new features just fixes a seqfault which I didn't catch but which is pretty evil. In fact this segfault is so evil I had to authorize secret wiretaps (and different sort of taps as well) of persons suspected of being related to the Al Segfaultgob2 2.0.14 the "Law of releases before holidays" release
organization. This way I can act like a responsible person instead of taking blame for the failure to read patches properly.
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 (or higher for some features) 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.
