Gee [ANNOUNCE] Libgee 0.7.1 - GObject collection library

We are very pleased to announce version 0.7.1 of Libgee, the GObject 
collection library.

Libgee 0.7.1 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 0.7.1

  * API changes
    * Split List into BidirList and List
    * Split ListIterator into BidirListIterator and ListIterator

  * New implementations
    * ConcurrentLinkedList provides lock-free single linked list

  * Infrastructure
    * Require up-to-date NEWS file on make distcheck

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
                             * BidirList
                       # Set
                             * SortedSet
                       # MultiSet
                       # Queue
                             * Deque
                 + Map
                       # SortedMap
           o Iterator
                 + BidirIterator
                       # BidirListIterator
                 + ListIterator
                       # BidirListIterator
     * MultiMap

The ArrayList, ConcurrentLinkedList 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.
