PyGObject 3.8.3 released

Martin Pitt-4
We got some requests to do a new stable release of PyGObject with some
important bug fixes, so here it is: version 3.8.3 of the Python
bindings for GObject.

The new release is available from
  sha256sum: caa6507edb8cca56e781bf927d88ce99581e1df9978b59a3360cfb74bd9c15f5

What’s new since PyGObject 3.8.2
 - Add marshalling of GI_TYPE_TAG_VOID held in a GValue to int.  While
   not particularly useful this allows some callbacks in WebKit to
   function without causing a segfault. (Simon Feltman) (#694233)
 - pygtkcompat: Fix for missing methods on Windows (Martin Pitt)
 - gi/pygi-info.c: Avoid C99-style variable declaration (Chun-wei Fan)
 - Clear return value of closures to zero when an exception occures
   (Simon Feltman) (#702552)
 - Re-add support for passing GValue's by reference (Simon Feltman)
 - Don't use doctest syntax in docstrings for examples, to fix test
   failures with pyflakes 0.7.x (Martin Pitt) (#701009)
 - examples/ Port to GI and Python 3 (Martin Pitt)

About PyGObject
GObject is a object system used by GTK+, GStreamer and other libraries.

PyGObject provides a convenient wrapper for use in Python programs when
accessing GObject libraries.

Like the GObject library itself PyGObject is licensed under the GNU
LGPL, so is suitable for use in both free software and proprietary
applications. It is already in use in many applications ranging from
small single purpose scripts up to large full featured applications.

PyGObject now dynamically accesses any GObject libraries that uses
GObject Introspection. It replaces the need for separate modules such as
PyGTK, GIO and python-gnome to build a full GNOME 3.0 application. Once
new functionality is added to gobject library it is instantly available
as a Python API without the need for intermediate Python glue.
