Gee [ANNOUNCE] Libgee 0.7.0 - GObject collection library

We are very pleased to announce version 0.7.0 of Libgee, the GObject 
collection library.

Libgee 0.7.0 is now available for download at:

Also please note that now Libgee has its own mailing-list
and its own #gee IRC channel.

New in 0.7.0

  * API changes
    * Move to delegates with targets
    * Name of delegates moved into Gee namespace (Alban Browaeys)
    * Gee.Hashable interface
    * Moved Iterator.first into BidirIterator.first
    * Allow checking if iterator is valid by Iterator.valid property
    * Add highier-level functions by Traversable interface
    * Add lazy values
    * Introduce SortedMap interface

  * New implementations
    * TreeMap now implements SortedMap

  * Infrastructure
    * Use automake 1.11 vala support
    * Allow installation in parallel with libgee 0.5/0.6

  * Code Quality
    * Many bug fixes
    * Allow better code optimization for user by higher level functions
    * Lots of additional documentation

Libgee is a collection library providing GObject-based interfaces and 
classes for commonly used data structures.

Libgee provides the following interfaces:

     * Traversable
           o Iterable
                 + Collection
                       # List
                       # Set
                             * SortedSet
                       # MultiSet
                       # Queue
                             * Deque
                 + Map
                       # SortedMap
           o Iterator
                 + BidirIterator
                       # ListIterator
     * MultiMap

The ArrayList, HashSet, HashMap, HashMultiSet, HashMultiMap, LinkedList, 
PriorityQueue, TreeSet, TreeMap, TreeMultiSet, and TreeMultiMap classes 
provide a reasonable sample implementation of those interfaces. In 
addition, a set of abstract classes are provided to ease the 
implementation of new collections.

Around that, the API provide means to retrieve read-only views, 
efficient sort algorithms, simple, bi-directional or index-based mutable 
iterators depending on the collection type.

Libgee is written in Vala and can be used like any GObject-based C 
library. It's planned to provide bindings for further languages.
