Hello Lua hackers,

lgi 0.6.1 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 bugfix release, no new major features were added compared to last 
0.6 release.  List of fixed bugs taken from README is appended at the end 
of this announcement.

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

Happy hacking!
