GNU Foliot 0.9.7 is released.  This is a maintenance release, which
brings GNU Foliot up-to-date with Guile-2.2, which introduced an
incompatible module - goops related - change.

* About GNU Foliot

GNU Foliot is a small and easy to use time keeping application.

It can be used in a single user mode or by small organizations. Starting
with version 0.9.4, it can import other user's database, an essential
feature for remote collaborators.

The fields it handles are: a date, who, for whom, what, a duration,
whether or not to be charged and a description.

It includes, on the main application screen, a powerful dynamic filters
criteria mechanism, which lets you visualize, work on and print a subset
of your time keeping entries.

A printing templates system allows you to (pre)define, reuse and hence
quickly generate the pdf files and/or printed reports of your needs.

A version which will let users export an active filter based subset of
their time keeping entries is under work.

This released was bootstrapped with the following tools:

        -] gcc                    (Debian 7.3.0-11) 7.3.0 
        -] autoconf               (GNU Autoconf) 2.69 
        -] automake               (GNU automake) 1.15.1 
        -] makeinfo               (GNU texinfo) 6.5 
        -] pdflatex               3.14159265-2.6-1.40.18 (TeX Live 2017/Debian) 
        -] guile-2.2              2.2.3
        -] guile-gnome-glib-2     2.16.5
        -] sqlite3                3.22.0
        -] libpcre                8.39
        -] grip-1.0               0.1.2

* Changes since 0.9.6-beta

Here is a summary of the changes since version 0.9.6-alpha. See GNU
Foliot's git summary [1] and git log [2] for a complete description:



        - Guile       >= 2.0.14
        - Guile-Gnome >= 2.16.5
        - Grip        >= 0.1.2


        - Guile-2.2 does not query (default-duplicate-binding-handler)
      at module expand eval load time as it did for Guile-2.0, a bad
      decision imo, but we have to cope with it, and declare
      #:duplicates (merge-generics ...) in each individual module
      instead.  We also removed our patched version of guild, since it
      became useless, and now use the version that comes with Guile.

        - All getters, setters, accessors and methods are now exported
      using g-export - defined in (grip g-export) - which re-export
      defined names (and precisely should only be used for getters,
      setters, accessors and methods).

* Bug reports

Please report bugs to address@hidden

* Mailing lists

For the time being, Foliot uses Guile's mailing list:

  address@hidden is for general user help and discussion;

  address@hidden is used to discuss most aspects of Folit,
  including development and enhancement requests.


[*] Use a .sig file to verify that the corresponding file (without the
    .sig suffix) is intact.  First, be sure to download both the .sig
    file and the corresponding tarball.  Then, run a command like this:

        gpg --verify foliot-0.9.7.tar.gz.sig

    If that command fails because you don't have the required public
    key, then run this command to import it:

        gpg --keyserver --recv-keys A3057AD7

    and rerun the 'gpg --verify' command
