One of the major advantages of the GNOME application development platform lies in its ability to be consumed by multiple programming languages, reaching potential new contributors and developers where they feel more comfortable. GObject Introspection is
now used not just for programming languages, but also for documenting and validating API. We are now moving the introspection format directly into the core of our platform, GLib, so that we can rely on it to a greater degree. Maintainers of platform libraries now have to be even more aware of how their API can be described, documented, and used
through introspection. In this presentation, I'll outline what happened, what's coming, and how best to live with introspection.
