Hello Lua hackers,
lgi 0.6 (alpha series) was released. As usual, it is available either
from its github homepage, , luarocks (by 'luarocks install lgi'),
and newly it is also packaged in debian/unstable (lua-lgi and
lgi is gobject-introspection based dynamic Lua binding to GObject
libraries. It allows using GObject-based libraries directly from Lua.
If it sounds gibberish to you, ten simly said it allows easy usage of
GTK+ and similar libraries from Lua.
The main improvement in this version is cairo drawing library support.
With cairo support in place, lgi's support of GTK+ is now fairly complete.
Other than that, there were a few fixes mainly for supporting of some
'exotic' architectures (s390x, mips).
Any comments or other feedback will be greatly appreciated, use github
issue tracker  for reporting bugs.
