We're pleased to announce version 1.5 of GNU MIG, the GNU distribution of
the Mach 3.0 Interface Generator (MIG),

This tool translates Remore Procedure Call (RPC) definition files to C
code, and is required to compile any packages that are receiving or
invoking RPCs, such as GNU Mach, GNU Hurd, and the GNU C Library (glibc)
when compiled for the Hurd.

This new release bundles bug fixes and enhancements done since the last

| Version 1.5 (2015-04-10)
| * Add support for protected payloads.  The new `intranpayload' option
|   can be used to specify a translation function translating payloads
|   to values of the translated type.  This function will be used
|   instead of the `intran' function to to look up the receiving object
|   of a message in a server.  This makes it easy to use the protected
|   payloads introduced in GNU Mach 1.5.
| * Emit `X_server_routine' functions that can be inlined reducing the
|   message dispatch overhead.
| * Improve support for variable-sized C strings.
| * Fix a warning when compiling generated files.

Many thanks to all the people who are helping!
