ANNOUNCE: gob2 2.0.10 the "reinterpret_cast<dead>(horse)" release


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

Note: RPMS are built on Fedora Core 2, so your success on other distros or
versions of redhat/fedora may vary.

Have fun,
