Hello Lua hackers,

lgi 0.7.2 was released.  As usual, it is available either
from its github homepage[1], [2], luarocks (by 'luarocks install lgi'), 
or it might be available in your favorite distribution.

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 simply said it allows easy usage of GTK+
and similar libraries from Lua.

This is service, bugfix release.  See full changelist at the bottom.

Any comments or other feedback will be greatly appreciated, use github
issue tracker [3] for reporting bugs.

Happy hacking!
