Description: Library for deferred execution
Dex is a library supporting "Deferred Execution" with the explicit goal of
integrating with GNOME and GTK-based applications. It provides primatives
for supporting futures in a variety of ways with both read-only and writable

which calls asynchronous APIs from GIO underneath.
This package will be maintained by the Debian GNOME team. Packaging is at
It is a required dependency for GNOME Builder 44.
