gob2 2.0.5

HMMMMMMMMMYEEEAAAAAAAAAAAAH

It turns out that gob had a bad leak on signal emission.  I think of it
differently.  I think gob was being nice to many things and giving them
longer life then they would have otherwise.  It was especially generous
to the object itself by giving it many more refcounts then it needed.
Anyway, gob will now return to being cruel to things that aren't referenced
anymore and free them.

So what is this gob thing?  Well besides being the cure for cancer, it also
generates GObjects (or GTK+ objects).  GOB2 is a replacement for the version
1 GOB, that was for GTK+ 1.x mostly.  GOB2 can handle pretty much most of
the GObject features.  At least most of the ones that anyone will ever use.
It only requires GLib 2.0 and can generate arbitrary GObjects.  You can have
both versions installed at the same time if you wish, so that you don't have
to port all your gob files to gob2 for now, but you really should as gob2 is
nicer and all that kind of stuff.

Here are the news in 2.0.5 (gob2):

        * Fix leak in signal emission

  and experienced users. In addition to the standard newsreader  
  features, Pan also supports yEnc, offline newsreading, article 
  filtering, multiple connections, and more features for power   
  users and alt.binaries fans.                                   
                                                                 
  It's also the only Unix newsreader to get a perfect score on   
  the Good Net-Keeping Seal of Approval evaluations.

  |----------------+-------------------------------------------| 
  |                | Fixed bug that kept `urgent' events from  |

Bakery_GnomeUI 1.3.0


Bakery_GnomeUI extends Bakery to provide the GnomeUI functionality that was previously in Bakery itself.
It has been extracted because Bakery's base App/Document/View classes are now independent of any 
particular GUI toolkit and we prefer to use pure gtkmm as the default implementation.

Documentation and downloads are available at
http://bakery.sourceforge.net
