Announce: Libsigc++ 0.8.3

(A little late sending this out.  For those that missed it on freshmeat.)

Libsigc++ 0.8.3
- -----------------
Libsigc++ implements a full callback system for use in widget libraries, 
abstract interfaces, and general programming. Originally part of the Gtk-- 
widget set, libsigc++ is now a seperate library to provide for more general 
use. It is the most complete library of its kind with the ablity to connect 
an abstract callback to a class method, function, or function object. It 
contains adaptor classes for connection of dissimilar callbacks and has 
an ease of use unmatched by other C++ callback libraries. Ligsigc++ is 
licensed under the LGPL.
