Re: [sigc] interthread communication library "sigx++" (crossposting)

Hey Milosz,

Before you officially package it I still want to change the open_tunnel() API - in case you didn't need it yet it's because sigx++ does it normally under the hood. But it belongs to the public API and it's not good to change it later as I don't want to change the major version already at the very beginning. It would be great if you could help me to find a naming for those taking an explicit dispatchable.

Well, the assertion facilities moved from gmessages.h to gtestutils.h as I've just found out. The question is how to fix this - do you need backward compatibility or should sigx++ depend on glib-2.16?

I'll include this possibility.

I know, I'm missing a SCM, too. I'm thinking about, or google - do you have a good suggestion?

Thanks for your appreciation! I will fix those things as soon as possible as I'm interested to have the library up and running, too.
