gjs 1.57.2

About gjs

GNOME JavaScript bindings


- There are now overrides for Gio.SettingsSchema and Gio.Settings which avoid
  aborting the whole process when trying to access a nonexistent key or child
  schema. The original API from GLib was intended for apps, since apps should
  have complete control over which settings keys they are allowed to access.
  However, it is not a good fit for shell extensions, which may need to access
  different settings keys depending on the version of GNOME shell they're
  running on.

  This feature is based on code from Cinnamon which the copyright holders have
  kindly agreed to relicense to GJS's license.

- New JS API: It is now possible to pass GObject.TypeFlags to
  GObject.registerClass(). For example, passing
  `GTypeFlags: GObject.TypeFlags.ABSTRACT` in the class info object, will create
  a class that cannot be instantiated. This functionality was present in
  Lang.Class but has been missing from GObject.registerClass().
