* GApplication
- Export actions over DBus and support activating them from remote instances
- Support environment passing
* GSettings
- The gsettings utility has a list-recursively command
- The gsettings utility has commandline completion for enum values
* GLib is now linked against librt and uses monotonic time for
timeouts and GPeriod sources. GSource has a new g_source_get_time()
which returns monotonic time, and g_source_get_current_time() has
been deprecated
* Bugs fixed:

Overview of Changes from GLib 2.27.0 to 2.27.1
* GDateTime now has full week number support.
New API: g_date_time_get_week_numbering_year
* The GSettings schema compiler will now skip over
broken .xml schema files instead of aborting altogether
* GSettings now works properly on bigendian systems
* GSettings has more complete support for ranges
New API:
The gsettings commandline tool supports ranges too.
* GApplication has been rewritten; see the API docs for details
and examples. The action support is not complete yet.
* The GLib mainloop has gained 'dispatch to context' functionality,
which can replace manually created idles in many cases.
New API:
* The gio-desktop-app-info-lookup extension point has been
removed from GIO. GIO now uses x-scheme-handler mimetypes when
looking for default applications.
* On win32, make g_get_user_data_dir() return the CSIDL_LOCAL_APPDATA
folder on Windows, and not CSIDL_PERSONAL. This matches what Qt does,
and has been widely requested. Also make g_get_user_config_dir() return
this and not the (roaming) CSIDL_APPDATA folder.
* A periodic event clock has been added in GIO: GPeriodic. Note that this
API is still experimental and expected to undergo changes before it
will be incorporated into a stable GLib release. Use at your own risk.

Overview of Changes from GLib 2.25.12 to GLib 2.25.13
| WARNING: There have been no breaks in API or ABI. Weird, eh? |
The primary purpose of this release is to fix a serious problem with
glib 2.25.12: glibconfig.h (as generated on a Fedora amd64 system) was
being distributed in the tarball. It was being used to build some parts
of glib on other systems (eg: 32bit ones). This was causing some very
serious problems.
There have been many other improvements, however:
Build and testing:
- vastly improved test coverage
- old tests moved to the gtester framework
- gtester Makefile modified so that the tests only run once
- cleanup of how we handle includes while building glib
- add a g_return_if_fail (utf8) to g_variant_new_string()
- perform extra sanity checks when serialising messages
- add API to query and set the byteorder of a GDBusMessage
- improve debug output, add some extra options
- if exiting due to the bus disconnecting us, print an error message
explaining why
- sort property names correctly
- don't bother sending RemoveMatch when we will close the connection
- use effective uid/gid for credential passing
- add G_SETTINGS_BIND_INVERT_BOOLEAN for inverting boolean bindings
without mapping functions
- mark all strings in the schema compiler for translation
- improve closure support for bindings
- copy GSettings INVERT_BOOLEAN flag
- fix another complicated GCancellable deadlock possibility

Overview of Changes from GLib 2.25.10 to GLib 2.25.11
| WARNING: There have been minor API changes in GDBus and GVariant. |
| These API changes will not affect many users, but they do require |
| a new version of GTK+ to be installed. |
- add a --disable-Bsymbolic configure flag to disable linking with
- this release sees the complete removal of the old 'g*alias' hacks
- honour the NOCONFIGURE environment variable from
- use proper feature test macros for isnan
- use pkg-config to check for zlib
- hide Class and instance structures for all GDBus types except
GDBusProxy. This breaks API by preventing subclassing, but probably
nobody was doing that.
- add new GDBusConnection call to support flushing all pending
outgoing messages
- change the register_object API to add a reference to the
GDBusInterfaceInfo object so the caller need not keep it alive
- don't rewrite the serial number when sending messages that already
have a serial number
- better error checking for DBUS_SESSION_BUS_ADDRESS environment
- switch to g_parse_debug_string for G_DBUS_DEBUG and add a lot of new
- add support for temporarily freezing a freshly created
GDBusConnection. Do this until after the ::new-connection signal
has finished running on GDBus services.
- never require non-closed connections (the user is incapable of doing
this due to the obvious race)
- remove weird/misleading redundant check on NameOwnerChanged signal
- emit GDBusProxy::g-properties-changed on NameOwnerChanged
- the 'g_variant_{new,get}_byte_array' APIs have been removed
- g_variant_{new,get,dup}_bytestring has been added, with different
arguments and different behaviour
- g_variant_{new,get,dup}_bytestring_array has been added, doing
essentially the same thing as the 'strv' functions, but with byte
strings instead of utf8 strings
STRING_ARRAY ('as') constants have been added
- the undocumented behaviour that g_variant_get_strv() deserialised
arrays of object paths or signature strings has been dropped
- additional varargs support for converting bytestrings or bytestring
arrays with ^ay ^aay ^&ay and ^a&ay
- improved gobject-introspection annotation
- fix a problem with GBuffer calling g_slice_free for the wrong type
- fix leaks in the type inferencing code of the parser
- improved documentation
- updated schema XML DTD, now xincluded into the docs
- added support for schemas that extend other schemas (using the
'extends=' attribute). Values of keys in the base schema can be
overridden using <override>.
- added theoretical support for lists (using the 'list-of=' attribute)
- lots of new tests
- add support for flags (implemented similarly to enums)
- add support for generating .enums.xml files to gsettings.m4:
gsettings_ENUM_NAMESPACE = org.example.myapp
gsettings_ENUM_FILES = ../path/to/*.h
will generate org.example.myapp.enums.xml with mappings for all
enums and flags in the specified .h files.
- warn with g_message() if the 'memory' backend is used by default
(ie: because no other GSettings backends are installed)
- fix get_property() for GSettings::schema
- command line tool: fix a bug that prevented non-basic values from
being set due to a premature free
- command line tool: bash completion support
- chain up in _finalize
- add a new g_settings_get_mapped API to read settings that require
- retry with the translated or schema default value if the
GSettingsBindGetMapping function fails
- schema compiler: never fail due to empty schema directories (but
- peek rather than ref/unref the GEnumClass in the mapping function
- schema compiler: compile *.enums.xml before *.gschemas.xml to ensure
that we have all the enums that the schemas may reference
- schema compiler: improve accuracy of line numbers in error reports
- fix crashes in the keyfile backend caused by invalid group names in
the keyfile
- always intern GBinding prop names
- base64: remove asserts preventing conversion of empty strings
- document NULL special-cases for GValueArray
- GNode docs improvements
- improve detection of 'system internal' mounts

Overview of Changes from GLib 2.25.8 to GLib 2.25.9
| WARNING: There have been API changes in GDBus, GSettings and |
| GApplication. Users of these APIs will need to be adapted. In |
| particular, a new release of GTK+ is required to go along with |
| this one. |
* GDBus
- Use Gio's default async implementation
- Fix proxy construction for objects with no properties
- Fix error handling in synchronous initialization
- Do not dispatch calls to unregistered objects
- Add _with_closures alternative functions
- Allow constructing GDBusProxy with well-known names
- Remove GType parameters from GDBusProxy constructors
- Nuke g_bus_watch_proxy API
- Add --xml to gdbus-tool to print raw introspected XML

* GIO:
- GConverter: a generic interface for stateful conversions of data,
suitable for charset conversion, compression, decompression, regexp
replacement. Concrete implementations are GCharsetConverter,
GZlibCompressor and GZlibDecompressor. GConverterInputStream,
GConverterOutputStream are stream implementations that convert data
while loading or saving it.
- GMounts can now have a 'default location': a path that reflects
the main entry point for the user (e.g. the home directory).
- As a consequence of the compression support, GIO depends on zlib now.
* GObject:
- G_IMPLEMENT_INTERFACE_DYNAMIC: a convenience macro for adding
interfaces to dynamic types.
* GModule:
- The -pthread flag has been added to all gmodule .pc files, because
it is not generally permissible to load modules that are linked
against libpthread if the program has not been compiled with threading

Overview of Changes from GLib 2.14.x to GLib 2.15.0
Major new features:
* GIO: a VFS API, designed to replace GnomeVFS. The GIO implementation
in GLib has support for local filesystems. The new, separate gvfs
module contains various backend implementations (cifs, ftp, sftp,
http, ...)
* GChecksum: provides various hash algorithms, such as MD5, SHA-1
and SHA-256
* GTest: a test framework
Smaller additions:
* GHash:
- GHash has iterators, as an alternative to g_hash_table_foreach
* GMarkup:
- g_markup_parse_context_get_element_stack: New function to
get the stack of open elements
- G_MARKUP_PREFIX_ERROR_POSITION: New flag to improve error
- g_markup_collect_attributes: Convenience function for handling
* GKeyFile:
- Functions that take a GError now return a boolean to indicate
success, instead of void
- Various performance improvements
* GAsyncQueue:
- g_async_queue_new_full: new function that allows to specify
a free function for leftover elements
* GError:
- g_prefix_error and g_propagate_prefixed_error: New functions
to ease error propagation
* Internationalization:
- C_: A new 2-argument variant of the Q_() macro
- Use native character set conversion API on Windows
* GLib builds with automake 1.10

Overview of Changes from GLib 2.9.0 to GLib 2.9.1
* Memory management
- The slice allocator is implemented [Tim Janik]
- g_slice_free_chain() has been renamed to
g_slice_free_chain_with_offset() [Tim, Behdad Esfahbod]
- Mem chunks are deprecated [Matthias Clasen]
* Data structures

* Thread support
- Support for Solaris threads has been removed
[Sebastian Wilhelmi, Andrew Paprocki]
- g_async_queue_sort(), g_async_queue_push_sorted() have
been added to allow GAsyncQueue to be used as a priority
queue, together with the corresponding _unlocked
variants [Martyn Russell]

enumeration. This breaks Pango <= 1.10
[Behdad Esfahbod]
- The various Unicode character predicate functions
(g_unichar_isalpha, g_unichar_isdigit,...) have
been optimized
- g_utf8_pointer_to_offset, g_utf8_offset_to_pointer:
These functions handle negative offsets now, and
going backwards in g_utf8_offset_to_pointer uses
"stutter stepping".
[Larry Ewing, Matthias Clasen]
* Memory management:
- Mem chunks are no longer used internally in GLib and
GObject. GMemChunk will be deprecated in GLib 2.10
- All APIs based on GAllocator (g_list_push/pop_allocator,
and similar push/pop_allocator functions for other
data structures) have been deprecated, since they
never worked as intended.
- The g_slice_* functions have been added as a
new API for fast allocation of small memory blocks.
The implementation in GLib 2.9.0 is just a simple
wrapper around malloc. GLib 2.10 will have an
efficient and scalable implementation.
[Tim Janik, Matthias]

GTimeVal value. g_date_set_time has been deprecated
in favor of these.
[Roger Leigh]
* g_snprintf and g_vsnprintf:
- These functions are no longer declared in gprintf.h,
