Fixes coming

It has been a long time since I touched Pasang Emas. After all, it has been a rather stable product with no urgent defect to attend to. I was aware of changes in GTK+ (a toolkit that Pasang Emas uses), but I did not think that they would significantly affect Pasang Emas.

The situation changed when I received the following announcement on a mailing list:

    Since glib 2.41.2, the mutex/cond implementation on Linux has changed. The
    code compiled with Vala < 0.26 which targets at least glib 2.32 with
    --target-glib 2.32 will suffer from deadlocks.

That message means Pasang Emas may fail to run on newer GNU/Linux systems.

So, I hastily took action and fixed this. I also discovered that some changes in GTK+ cause some parts of Pasang Emas to fail. This has been fixed too.

However, I'm not ready to make a release yet. I want to do some code cleanup. If you are impatient for the next release of Pasang Emas, you can get the latest development version from its git repository. The latest development version is usually usable.
