[ANNOUNCE] Vala 0.17.3 - Compiler for the GObject type system

Recommended Posts

We are pleased to announce version 0.17.3 of Vala, a compiler for the

GObject type system.


Vala 0.17.3 is now available for download at:



Changes since 0.17.2

* Require and target GLib >= 2.18.

* Support async creation methods.

* Bug fixes and binding updates.


Vala is a programming language that aims to bring modern programming

language features to GNOME developers without imposing any additional

runtime requirements and without using a different ABI compared to

applications and libraries written in C.


valac, the Vala compiler, is a self-hosting compiler that translates

Vala source code into C source and header files. It uses the GObject

type system to create classes and interfaces declared in the Vala source
