Description Andrey Bondrov 2012-06-23 04:19:23 MSD
Version of vala in Rosa 2012 LTS is very old and not very usable. We need to update it from 0.12.1 to 0.17. Only vala's own subpackages are linked with libvala at this moment so it should be safe to update.

Advisory: "Version of vala is very old. Update it from 0.12.1 to 0.17".

Synapse, for example. I cannot package it for 2012lts because vala is too old there. Feel free to get it and rebuild with new vala:


But of course you may write your own code to test vala. As it's a programming language and compiler. Tutorial and "Hello, world" example is here:
