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 improvements and bug fixes:
  - codegen: Don't apply address-of operator on literals when casting to array
  - vala: Don't tweak closure on static lambdas [#740]
  - Revert "codegen: Use copies of error_variable of catch-clauses for nested
    usage" and add asynchronous "catch-error-scope" regression test [#741]
  - libvaladoc: Build backing Vala.SourceFile for GIRs processed by importer
  - libvaladoc/girimporter: Skip "source-position" elements
  - genie: Support "protected" accessibility and allow explicit "public" [#346]

 * Bindings:
  - gst-editing-services-1.0: Fix some construtors and (un)hide symbols
  - javascriptcoregtk-4.0: Fix GLib.Callback parameters which can't hold target
