* Guile-Gnome 2.16.3 release tarball GPG signature [*]:

;;    Special Note:

;;    (-) or install from the source, see 'Quickstart' here:

* About Guile-Gnome:

Guile-Gnome is a Guile wrapper collection for the following GNOME core

        Gobject, Glib, Atk, Pango, Pangocairo, Gdk, Gdk-Pixbuf, Gtk,
        Libglade, Gnome-Vfs, Libgnome, Libgnomecanvas, Libgnomeui,

Guile-Gnome brings the power of Guile Scheme to your graphical
application, providing a comprehensive environment for developing
modern applications.

* Changes since 2.16.2:

The primary objectives, working towards this release, were (a) to
remove all code specific to the support of Guile versions prior to
Guile 2, (b) removing all [but 1 Corba related that still need to be
taken care of, help welcome] Guile deprecated calls, and (c) wrap
gdk_pixbuf_get_pixels required by Guile-Clutter 1.12.

    All modules

        - Guile-Gnome now requires Guile 2.0, allows Guile 2.2
        - Requires G-Wrap >= 1.9.15
        - Requires Guile-Cairo >= 1.10

        Note: at the time we write, Guile-Cairo 1.10 has not been
        released yet, it will hope fully soon be the case. In the mean
        time, the required bleeding edge Guile-Cairo stable version
        must be obtained from the source, see here:


        - toplevel calls moved into an eval-when conditions exp
        - scm-error incorrect arg list, various calls, all fixed
        - all [but 1 Corba related] Guile deprecated calls removed
        - remove use of some undocumented GOOPS internals
        - adapt to GOOPS changes in Guile 2.2
        - make check and make distcheck both have been fixed to work
          with recent automake versions [thanks to Ludovic Court├ęs
          for his help wrt to make check]


        - fixing allocate-instance for <CORBA:Object>
        - gnome-corba-error, gruntime-error, don't call save-stack


        - g_get_current_time now [temporarily] ignored, it was not
           properly wrapped anyway
        - <glib-wrapset> missing some basic pointer types: guint8*,
           guchar*, gunichar*, gunichar2* added and wrapped as opaque
        - use &gw-bad-typespec, not &gw:bad-typespec
        - use string-suffix?, not has-suffix?


        - gdk_pixbuf_get_pixels removed from the ignore list, it
           returns a guchar*, just added, no specific wrapper needed


        - gtk_recent_info_get_application_info should [temporarily]
           be ignored, it needs a special wrapper, to be done still

.sig suffix) is intact.  First, be sure to download both the .sig file
and the corresponding tarball.  Then, run a command like this:

        gpg --verify guile-gnome-platform-2.16.3.tar.gz.sig

If that command fails because you don't have the required public key,
then run this command to import it:

        gpg --keyserver --recv-keys A3057AD7

and rerun the 'gpg --verify' command.
