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.


 * Various bug fixes:
  - girparser:
    + Set NoAccessorMethod for non-readable and construct-only properties
    + Ignore conflicting closure/destroy indexes
    + Don't accept methods as property-accessor which throw errors [#792998]
  - codegen:
    + Infer error parameter from abstract/virtual base methods [#614294]
    + Fix return-type for cancelled async creation methods of classes [#792942]
  - vala: Variadic constructors without a real first parameter are not allowed
  - libvaladoc: Keep bootstrap-support with valac >= 0.16.1

 * Bindings:
  - gstreamer-1.0: Update from 1.13+ git master
  - gtk+-4.0: Only override type of "event" parameters
