libgdata 0.13.0 released

libgdata 0.13.0 is now available from:

d86323f34c17ec4d1a58970a775921c2608af3dc48f5a821624c0c76f2c1c06f  libgdata-0.13.0.changes
93faecbfc931e3d50869e6b46e2711dcd5cf69ab6ae680c10b65365ab8051274  libgdata-0.13.0.tar.xz

libgdata has switched to a traditional even–odd/stable–unstable
versioning scheme, making this the first in a line of unstable releases
eventually leading to a stable 0.14.0 release.

This is the “Google Documents v3” release: almost all of the work on
this release has been to move the Google Documents service to support
v3 of the API. This includes basic support for resumable uploads,
support for arbitrary file uploads, and basic support for quotas.

It also includes a tonne of workarounds for bugs in Google’s API, but
I’ve probably complained about this enough already.

About libgdata

libgdata is a GLib-based library for accessing online service APIs using
the GData protocol — most notably, Google's services. It provides APIs
to access the common Google services, and has full asynchronous support.

Overview of changes from libgdata 0.12.0 to libgdata 0.13.0

Major changes:
 • Bump GLib dependency to 2.31.0 in order to use its new threading primitives
 • Add basic support for resumable uploads to GDataUploadStream (bug #607272)
 • Update support for Google Documents to v3 of the API
 • Add support for arbitrary file uploads to Google Documents (using GDataDocumentsDocuemtn),
   and document conversion on upload (using GDataDocumentsUploadQuery)

 • Added gdata_documents_service_upload_document_resumable()
