Please, forget it as soon as possible

New development version of Glib just released.

GLib 2.19.1 is now available for download at:

ftp://ftp.gtk.org/pub/glib/2.19/

http://download.gnome.org/sources/glib/2.19/

glib-2.19.1.tar.bz2 md5sum: 9309139a515408d9c99558d051c18302
glib-2.19.1.tar.gz md5sum: eab90f5965f3d004b8787989be5cca85

This is the second development release leading up to GLib 2.20.

It’s great they include the changelog with fixed bugs:

* Bugs fixed:
562538 GObject interface tutorial shouldn’t finalise with
“Please forget everything”

This one is great (among others, including multiple mem-leaks fixed).

Until this last release, the GObject tutorial had the following comment at the end of the “Non-instantiable classed types: interfaces” section:

“Now that you have read this section, you can forget about it. Please, forget it as soon as possible. “

What I am not sure about is: did they remove it because now interfaces are great? or just to skip publishing the idea that even GObject developers think that interfaces suck? Who knows…
