[gedit-list] ANNOUNCE: libpeas 0.5.1 - plugins for everyone

Hi all,

I am very proud to announce today a new release of libpeas - the gobject-based plugin engine, used by totem and gedit - in its latest version 0.5.1.

libpeas is the next evolution of the gedit plugins engine, and is targetted at giving every application the chance to assume its own extensibility. It also has a set of enhanced features with regard to what Gedit used to provide, mirroring the desiderata of your favourite text editor's developpers:
 - multiple extension points
 - on demand (lazy) programming language support for C, Python and JS
 - simplicity of the API

More details can be found on the announcement blog post here:
