Generate Haskell bindings for GObject Introspection capable libraries. This includes most notably Gtk+, but many other libraries in the GObject ecosystem provide introspection data too.



  • Make the overloading code protected by a CPP conditional, depending on ENABLE_OVERLOADING being defined. See issue 107.

  • Wrap boxed structs/unions as transient ManagedPtrs in callbacks. This is needed to fix a number of issues, including issue 96 and issue 97.


  • Fixes for GHC 8.2.1.


  • gtk-doc parser and haddock generator: while by no means perfect, now the autogenerated bindings come with some reasonable autogenerated documentation.

  • Many bugfixes. A particularly important one is for issue 82, which made compilation of gi-glib fail, for the latest version of gobject-introspection.
