Enhancements

gtk-doc 1.0     (Jan 20 2003)

 o Use the sgml-raw output type for openjade, so the resulting HTML
   is readable by the lynx web browser.
 o Added a pkg-config file, so apps can easily check for the gtk-doc
   version.
 o Added support for 'Since:' and 'Deprecated:' version information
   for each function.
 o Updated DSSSL stylesheet customization so output from SGML & XML
   modes is the same. 
 o Fixed problem with malformed UTF-8 characters.

gtk-doc 0.10    (Nov 14 2002)

 o --output-format option to select whether SGML or XML is generated. 
 o Use openjade or jade when converting SGML to HTML.
 o Use xsltproc to convert XML to HTML, with a new look.
 o In XML mode, support XIncludes as an alternative to entities.
 o In XML mode, create .devhelp files. 
 o List interfaces in the object hierarchy.
 o Create docs for signals on interfaces.
 o Generate links between interface and their implementations and
   prerequisites.
 o Create docs for child and style properties.
 o Use blurbs for property documentation.
 o Allow inline documentation for signals and properties. 

Thanks to Matthias Clasen for most of the above, and James Henstridge
for help with the XML/DSSSL stuff.

PS. The jump to the '1.0' version number is mainly to work around
problems with the old example makefiles (they can't handle 0.xx).
So don't get too excited!

orbitcpp 1.3.2

*** orbitcpp

orbitcpp provides a C++ CORBA mapping for ORBit2. It is used by GNOME's
Bonobo C++ bindings, which are part of gnomemm 2.

orbitcpp requires ORBit 2.5, such as that used by the GNOME 2.1.x development 
phase, but you can also use these versions safely with GNOME 2.0.x.

orbitcpp is based on the old ORBit/C++ project for ORBit 1.

For more information:
http://orbitcpp.sourceforge.net

*** Changes

1.3.2:

* Compliation fixes:
  - Corrected include paths. (Murray Cumming)
  - Corrected declaration and initialization of static data members
    (Daniel Elstner)
* Use the correct __length name for the internal implementation of 
  Sequence::length. (Gergo Erdi)

*** Download:

You can download it from
http://ftp.gnome.org/pub/gnome/sources/orbitcpp/
or the http://download.gnome.org mirrors when they update.

*** Development:

It's in gnome's cvs as the "orbitcpp" module. 
Patches should be added to the bugzilla orbit-cpp module, with full
ChangeLog entries.
Discussion should happen on orbitcpp-list@gnome.org
