ANNOUNCE: gob2 2.0.8 the "-o is cool" release


Now that my exams are over I'm spending even less time doing anything
productive, but I did manage to spend just a teeny bit on coding.  In any
case here's a new gob.  Doesn't do much new stuff, mostly fixes the
documentation, fixes boxed_type and adds a new command line option, the -o
option so that you can use a different output directory.  It's so cool.
Actually it's something which you could achieve before with
 "cd dir && gob2 foo.gob"
 "gob2 -o dir foo.gob"
just looks a little more like I know what I'm talking about.

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, so that you don't have
to port all your gob files to gob2 for now, but you really should as gob2 is
nicer and all that kind of stuff.

Here are the news in 2.0.8:

        * Documentation fixes
        * Add support for -o and --output-dir
        * Fixed boxed_type

Note: RPMS are built on RH9, so your success on other distros or versions
of redhat may vary.

Have fun,
