[g-a-devel] ANNOUNCE: AT-SPI2 1.91.90 released

AT-SPI2 1.91.90 is now available for download at:



The --enable-relocate option has been removed.  It was only intended as a
temporary hack to simplify testing, was hard to set up, and seemed to cause
problems (ie, BGO#641869).  Distributions that still package AT-SPI-CORBA may
want to mark it as conflicting with AT-SPI2.

What is AT-SPI2

AT-SPI2 is a D-Bus based accessibility framework. It defines a D-Bus
protocol for providing and accessing application accessibility
information. The project includes a library for bridging the D-Bus
protocol to the ATK API, allowing Gtk based applications to be made
accessible. It also contains a client (AT) side library in Python.
