vala 0.35.1

About vala

valac, the Vala compiler, is a self-hosting compiler that translates
Vala source code into C source and header files. It uses the GObject
type system to create classes and interfaces declared in the Vala
source code.

The syntax of Vala is similar to C#, modified to better fit the
GObject type system. Vala supports modern language features as the
following: Interfaces, Properties, Signals, Foreach, Lambda
expressions, Type inference for local variables, Generics, Non-null
types, Assisted memory management, Exception handling, Type modules

Vala is designed to allow access to existing C libraries, especially
GObject-based libraries, without the need for runtime bindings. All
that is needed to use a library with Vala is an API file, containing
the class and method declarations in Vala syntax. Vala currently comes
with bindings for GLib and GTK+ and many others from the GNOME

Using classes and methods written in Vala from an application written
in C is not difficult. The Vala library only has to install the
generated header files and C applications may then access the GObject-
based API of the Vala library as usual. It should also be easily
possible to write a bindings generator for access to Vala libraries
from applications written in e.g. C# as the Vala parser is written as
a library, so that all compile-time information is available when
generating a binding.

        vapi: Update GIR-based bindings

2016-11-19  Carlos Garnacho  <carlosg gnome org>

        codegen: Use GTask instead of GSimpleAsyncResult if 2.36 target is selected
        GTask brings some differences compared to GSimpleAsyncResult. Most namely,
        g_task_return*() operations perform at once the async result data asignment
        and the caller's main context activation. This is something that has to be
        done exactly once, so the code flow has slight changes to ensure that.

        Also, the async operation data used to be attached early through
        g_simple_async_result_set_op_res_gpointer, only to be maybe replaced by
        the real return data. If GTask is being used, we set this data through

        There's code out there relying on immediate return here when state is
        !=0. As GTask always defers the finalization to an idle in its main
        context, ensure the source is dispatched and the task completed before

        tests: Enable -Werror=format-security

        codegen: Avoid temporary variables for calls to [FormatArg] methods
        This prevents bogus C compiler warnings with -Wformat-nonliteral.

        Do not use non-literal printf format strings

        Add [FormatArg] attribute to Parser.get_error

        glib-2.0: Add [FormatArg] attributes to gettext functions

        Support [FormatArg] attribute for parameters
        This attribute specifies that the method takes and returns a printf
        or scanf format string without modifying the order or types of expected
        arguments, e.g., to translate the format string. This allows the
        compiler to check the printf/scanf arguments.

2016-10-25  Rico Tzschichholz  <ricotz ubuntu com>

        build: Conditionally adjust VALAFLAGS in case of proper bootsrapped builds
        This adds --hide-internal to VALAFLAGS to allow symbols to be marked
        'internal' in Vala source files and not appear in the dynamic symbol table
        of libvala.

        The build system checks for minimum valac version to fullfill required
        support of needed VALAFLAGS.
