ValaWinPKG 0.9b - official release

(note : links updated for ValaWinPKG 0.9d)

ValaWinPKG for Windows is a library manager for the Vala language .

It is itself written in Vala. Given the project's nature, the software is exceptionnally provided under the GPL license.

It is difficult, under the Windows© version of Vala, to find and install the good versions of additional libraries (most of
them being packaged for Linux). ValaWinPKG takes care of all this by downloading libraries from a central repository and installing them on your system.

- connects to HTTP (web) repositories, using a standard file format ;
