Hello Lua hackers,

lgi 0.6 (alpha series) was released. As usual, it is available either from its github homepage[1], [2], luarocks (by 'luarocks install lgi'), and newly it is also packaged in debian/unstable (lua-lgi and lua-lgi-dev packages).

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 [3] for reporting bugs.

Happy hacking!
