Long time no post...

I've been super busy as of late with lots of projects and other stuff, but figured a blog post is long overdue.

As some of you may know, there was a Pidgin Summer of Code project for GObjectification.  As some of you may know, I designed and spec'd out a ton of that project.  I was not the primary mentor for the project, but more of a technical support.  Anyways, when the topic of plugins came up, my GPlugin library got chosen.

My last post on GPlugin was announcing version 0.0.2 in April of 2012!!  Anyways, over the summer, GPlugin's functionality grew leaps and bounds.  The Python loader was finished, a Perl loader was started, a Lua load was completed and the library itself is more or less feature complete.  There's still plenty of things that need to be done, but everything (aside from a bug or two) is completely ready to use!

Last night I released version 0.0.12 which pretty much just fixed an extreme corner case bug that was more of a memory leak and some more unit testing.  At any rate, if you're working on a Glib/GObject based application and want plugins, give GPlugin a go as I could really use some more feedback!
