Gambas 3.2.1

What's new

This release fixes some annoying bugs that were still present in Gambas 3.2. Use it instead of the 3.2.0 version.

ChangeLog

[CONFIGURATION]
* BUG: When a top-level source directory actually several components,
  compile the sub-components *after* the main components. This is
  especially important with gb.xml and gb.xml.rpc.

[INTERPRETER]
* BUG: Do not leak memory if the _unknown method raised an error.
* BUG: Make the interpreter compile when FFI has been disabled.

[COMPILER]
* BUG: Like can be used in a Case expression just after the Case keyword
  only.

[GB.CRYPT]
* BUG: Fix bad casting of strcmp() return value to boolean. The same
  security flaw has been found in MySQL recently. See
  http://seclists.org/oss-sec/2012/q2/493

[GB.DESKTOP]
* NEW: Support for the Mate desktop in Desktop.Open, Desktop.OpenTerminal
  and Desktop.Passwords.

[GB.GTK]
* BUG: Fix bad casting of strcmp() return value to boolean in the Font
  management.
* BUG: Panel with an explicit background color now have their own X11
  window so that they can cover any over controls.
* BUG: The child search method now takes clientX and clientY into account.
  Consequently, clicking on TabStrip tab buttons work correctly again.

[GB.OPTION]
* BUG: The component is now compatible with the new way of arguments
  handling, and does not crash anymore.

[GB.QT4]
* BUG: ScrollView internal visible flag is correctly set, and so the
  Hovered property returns the right value.

[GB.SIGNAL]
* BUG: Remove an apparently useless type definition, and fix compilation on
  recent Linux kernels.
