Grip version 0.1.2 is released.

Here is a summary of the changes since version 0.1.1. See Grip's git summary and git log for a complete description:

Dependencies

  • Guile >= 2.0.14
  • Guile-Gnome >= 2.16.5

Grip-Gnome
Grip-Clutter

  • Guile-2.2 does not query (default-duplicate-binding-handler) at module expand eval load time as it did for Guile-2.0, a bad decision imo, but we have to cope with it, and declare #:duplicates (merge-generics ...) in each individual module instead, and remove our patched version of guild.
  • All getters, setters, accessors and methods exported using g-export not as part of the module #:export declarations - which re-export defined names (and precisely should only be used for getters, setters, accessors and methods.

Bugs fixed

  • The configure step was raising an exception if it could not find guile-gnome, but it should not, it should just not install grip-gnome in this case: this is fixed now.

Our request for a nongnu project page at Savannah for our Grip toolbox is accepted, with all the honors! Bruno Félix Rezende Ribeiro, the GNU Savannah hacker in charge of our evaluation said:

... I wish every package submitted to Savannah were so easy to evaluate as your. Congratulations for the high level of compliance! ...
