Head-up: Evolution-Data-Server Camel API changes to land next week

        Hi all,
this is yet another announcement of prepared changes for
the Evolution-Data-Server, this time about Camel and its changes to
make more objects GObject based, for better/easier introspection of the
Camel library. I mentioned this almost four months ago [1]. This had
been initiated by Corentin, I'd like to thank him for his help on it.

There will be a soname version bump, which I usually do not announce,
but this time the change makes semi-huge API changes, which require not
only rebuild, but also some additional changes among the projects which
link against libcamel. The corresponding bug report [2] contains a list
of possibly related projects. Some of them are hosted in GNOME
infrastructure and already contain a wip/camel-more-gobject branch.

I plan to merge the evolution-data-server changes on Tuesday,
November 8th (the next week), and as soon as possible also the changes
in evolution, evolution-ews, evolution-mapi, evolution-rss and
evolution-activesync, thus the GNOME Continuous builds are not broken
for long.

If there are more projects which would require changes, then do not
hesitate to contact me either on IRC or file a bug in GNOME and CC me
there. I'll be glad to help with the changes.
