Vala Project Generator

Sunday, November 25th, 2007

Vala 0.1.5 has been released. Tarballs are available from the GNOME FTP servers. I’ve added a small tool to create new Vala projects:

Vala Project Generator

It generates the necessary autotools magic for a Vala console or GTK+ application including i18n support and it passes distcheck. Suggestions for improvements are more than welcome.

We’ve also replaced the bindings generator gidlgen by vala-gen-introspect which includes a real C parser instead of Perl scripts using regular expressions. The 20 included bindings have all been ported. Some smaller features and many bug fixes can also be found in the new release.

There are two articles about Vala and an interview in the German Linux-Magazin, all by Christian Meyer.
