- Replace gtksourceview18-devel with pkgconfig(gtksourceview-2.0),
and use sed to bump what version configure looks for, no longer
depend on a long obsolete and deprecated version.

- update Url in the specfile
2017-03-23 -
- cleanup with spec-cleaner
2011-09-17 -
- Remove redundant tags/sections from specfile

* Bugs
[BOO-1034] - compiler error referencing base class members of a generic subclass of a generic class
[BOO-1064] - Overriden explicit interface implementation crashes compiler
[BOO-1065] - Duplicate explicit interfaces cause emit error
[BOO-1071] - List comprehension cannot be used inside array constructor
[BOO-1081] - Subclassing containing class causes compiler stack overflow
[BOO-1082] - Abstract subclassing turns methods public
[BOO-1165] - Callable cannot declare variable parameters
[BOO-1170] - for/or bug in generator
[BOO-1191] - booish crashes after /help, /globals, /load and /save
[BOO-1194] - Any autocompletion on an array crashes Boo interpreter
[BOO-1211] - No type safety at all if LHS or RHS of expression is an interface
[BOO-1240] - Compiler falsely considers any member of the same name to fulfill an external interface.
[BOO-1241] - Not all overloads of external implementations searched
[BOO-1248] - Most of the links on the Boo home page are dead
[BOO-1251] - Overflowing calculations with constants are compiled to invalid code
[BOO-1252] - System.InvalidOperationException with void/bool comparison
[BOO-1253] - System.InvalidOperationException with void function in hash literal
[BOO-1254] - Boo compiler fails on certain file names
[BOO-1255] - Boo compiler fails on empty files
[BOO-1256] - Class not found after importing two similar namespaces
[BOO-1259] - inheritance generic class with abstract parameter causes error
[BOO-1261] - cross-namespace inheritance from an interface fails
[BOO-1262] - The white space agnostic parser is not preserving file names
[BOO-1266] - Parser fails on literal -9223372036854775808L (long.MinValue)
* Improvement
[BOO-903] - Allow 'of' to be omitted in type references when [] are used
[BOO-1236] - Missing PatternMatching patterns, plus regex pattern
[BOO-1260] - Language change: remove 'continue' and 'break' special meaning from 'or' blocks

- Update to
2008-08-12 -
- Split into boo and boo-devel so as to not require nant
2008-06-17 -
- Update to
- (almost) complete nullable type support
- shorthandsfor nullable types (T?) and enumerables
(T* instead of IEnumerable[of T])
- improved booish behavior with nicer colors
(and it should work inside emacs now )
- 'else' block for 'for' and 'while loops
- fixes and improvement related to generic methods
(overloads and interface declarations)
2008-02-27 -
- Update to
- a simpler way for writing macros
- support for nested functions
- generic methods overloading works
- support for CLR 3.5 extension methods (moreover boo extension methods)
- compile-time conditionals through ConditionalAttribute and the new -define SYMBOL booc option
- AttributeUsageAttribute is now supported and enforced
- a better interactive interpreter (previously known as booish2)
- warnings about unused private members, unused namespaces, unreachable code
- new error messages, including suggestions for misspelled members or types
- exception filters, exception fault handlers
- for loop IDisposeable.Dispose integration
