Version 1.51.90 - Note that all the old Bugzilla bug reports have been migrated over to GitLab. - GJS now, once again, includes a profiler, which outputs files that can be read with sysprof. To use it, simply run your program with the environment variable GJS_ENABLE_PROFILER=1 set. If your program is a JS script that is executed with the interpreter, you can also pass --profile to the interpreter. See "gjs --help" for more info. - New API: For programs that want more control over when to start and stop profiling, there is new API for GjsContext. When you create your GjsContext there are two construct-only properties available, "profiler-enabled" and "profiler-sigusr2". If you set profiler-sigusr2 to TRUE, then the profiler can be started and stopped while the program is running by sending SIGUSR2 to the process. You can also use gjs_context_get_profiler(), gjs_profiler_set_filename(), gjs_profiler_start(), and gjs_profiler_stop() for more explicit control. - New API: GObject.signal_connect(), GObject.signal_disconnect(), and GObject.signal_emit_by_name() are now available in case a GObject-derived class has conflicting connect(), disconnect() or emit() methods. - Closed bugs and merge requests: * Handle 0-valued GType gracefully [#11, !10, Philip Chimento] * Profiler [#31, !37, Christian Hergert, Philip Chimento] * Various maintenance [!40, !59, Philip Chimento, Giovanni Campagna] * Rename GObject.Object.connect/disconnect? [#65, !47, Giovanni Campagna] * Better debugging output for uncatchable exceptions [!39, Simon McVittie] * Update Docker images and various CI maintenance [!54, !56, !57, !58, Claudio André] * Install GJS suppression file for Valgrind [#2, !55, Philip Chimento]
