Apologies for the noise, I'll resend correctly formatted.

Announcement ************** The GNUstep Base Library, version 1.26.0, is
now available. 1.1 What is the GNUstep Base Library?
===================================== The GNUstep Base Library is a
library of general-purpose, non-graphical Objective C objects. For
example, it includes classes for strings, object collections, byte
streams, typed coders, invocations, notifications, notification
dispatchers, moments in time, network ports, remote object messaging
support (distributed objects), and event loops. It provides
functionality that aims to implement the non-graphical portion of the
OpenStep standard (the Foundation library). There is more information
available at the GNUstep homepage at 'http://www.gnustep.org'. 1.2
Noteworthy changes in version '1.26.0'
========================================== * Improve utf8 validity
checks. * Make point and size subclasses for NSValue interchangable.
* Add support for TLS SNI. Always request certificate from client and
update certificates after 5 minutes. * Don't write deprecated
fields to desktop link file. * Use NSLock instead of GSLazyLock and
other improvements for multithreaded processes. * Clean up of
NSString cluster. * Update NSAssert() and NSCAssert() to handle
variable arguments (as OSX has done) and mark the numbered macros
as obsolete. * Various improvements in tests. * Require ICU >= 50.
* ICU is now detected using pkg-config. * Improve XML parsing.
* Make NSXMLNode ivar a union representing different types, instead
of assuming it will contain different underlying class types in
different contexts. This is important for the new libobjc2 ABI. *
OSX compatibility changes to NSURL. * NSFileManager call error handle
on missing file. * Dummy spinlock implementation for platforms that
don't support it. * Internationalization improvements: Japanese
translation, Turkish translation, Polish translation. * Various
improvements for new libobjc2 "v2 ABI", including things like a new
NSConstantString implementation, making GS_REPLACE_CONSTANT_STRING
a noop with the new ABI, etc. * Improvements for stack traces,
exception handling and dead lock detection. * Other more minor
bugfixes and cleanups. Many found by Coverity scan results. *
As usual, this release also contains an update to include the most
recent international timezone data. 1.3 Where can you get it? How can
you compile it? ================================================= The
