* Released GLib 1.1.1
Tue Aug 4 15:17:54 1998 Tim Janik <>
* version bump to 1.1.1, binary age 1, interface age 0.
* NEWS: updates.
* README: updates.
* INSTALL: updates and fixes.
* COPYING: include the GNU LGPL, rather than shipping an empty file.
* AUTHORS: listed original authors here, and added people who made
significant improvements to glib.
* glib.h:
* gutils.c: implement g_get_current_dir() which returns a newly
allocated string, instead of a g_getcwd() variant that operates
on a static buffer.
export glib_interface_age and glib_binary_age.
as a convenience, macro definitions have been added for
g_node_insert_data, g_node_insert_data_before, g_node_append_data and
* testglib.c: minor cleanups, print current dir.
Mon Aug 3 16:02:26 1998 Tim Janik <>
* glib.h:
* gnode.c: change order of gpointer data; field in struct _GNode to
be partly binary compatible with GList and GSList.
1998-08-03 Sebastian Wilhelmi <>
* garray.c (g_ptr_array_remove_index): bugfix: index check for
array has been wrong.

which says that G_LEVEL_ORDER is not implemented.
Mon Jul 27 00:17:30 CDT 1998 Shawn T. Amundson <>
* Released GLib 1.1.0
Mon Jul 27 01:02:27 1998 Tim Janik <>
* glib.h: #if 0'ed out the GTime definition, until it is definitively
needed. #if 0'ed out the g_getcwd() version, because it is the wrong
Sat Jul 25 16:09:00 1998 Mark Crichton <>
* glib.h: gtime changed to g_time. gtime is used in
/usr/include/time.h in NetBSD, causing multiple headaches.
If this isn't the right way of fixing it.... ;)
Thu Jul 23 00:29:14 1998 Tim Janik <>
* glib.h:
* gscanner.c: new functions to make a scanner scope sensitive wrt
symbol lookups.
g_scanner_scope_foreach_symbol, g_scanner_scope_lookup_symbol,
g_scanner_scope_remove_symbol, g_scanner_scope_add_symbol and
g_scanner_add_symbol, g_scanner_remove_symbol and
g_scanner_foreach_symbol are now aliases for scope 0.

allocated string.
Fri Jul 10 06:33:43 1998 Tim Janik <>
* glib.h:

g_basename(), g_getcwd(), g_get_user_name(), g_get_real_name(),

* gutils.c: removed all g_str* functions.
* gstrfuncs.c: moved the bunch g_str* functions from gutils.c in this
place. this file shall never include <unistd.h> to avoid clashes for
some of the g_str* functions on some OSes.
Fri Jul 10 00:29:03 EEST 1998 Lauri Alanko <>
* glib.h:
* ghash.c: Renamed g_hash_table_lookup_full to
g_hash_table_lookup_extended to conform with naming conventions.
Tue Jul 7 03:18:58 EEST 1998 Lauri Alanko <>
* glib.h:
* ghash.c: Generic cleanup, added a function:
(g_hash_table_lookup_full): Return whether the lookup succeeded,
and also retrieve the key and value. This allows one to
distinguish between failed lookup and finding a NULL, and also
allows one to free a key in the hash.

ours. ;)
Fri Jun 19 03:11:02 1998 Tim Janik <>
* gdataset.c: removed g_dataset_try_key, g_dataset_force_id and
g_dataset_retrive_key in favour of GQuarks.
a GQuark is an numeric id wich is associated with a certain string.
(g_quark_try_string): try to get the quark associated with this string,
if the lookup failed return 0.
(g_quark_from_string): get the associated quark for a string, if there
isn't currently a GQuark associated with this string, then allocate a
new quark and return that.
(g_quark_from_static_string): like the above function, but the string
isn't strdup()ed to save memory.
(g_quark_to_string): get the string that is associated with a certain
* gdataset.c (g_dataset_id_set_data_full): invoke the destroy function
_after_ the new data has been setup.

* glib.h: new typedefs, gsize, gssize, gtime.
* garray.c: new functions implementing a simplified GArray. This
GPtrArray is an array of gpointers and has functions to add and
remove elements, much like java.lang.Vector.
* garray.c: new functions for the single-byte special case of
GArray. The functions g_byte_array* operate on arrays of bytes.
Internally, a GArray is used.
* testglib.c: tests for g_ptr_array, g_byte_array, and g_relation...
1998-06-11 Federico Mena Quintero <>
* gdataset.c: #include <string.h>
Thu Jun 11 04:15:31 1998 Tim Janik <>

- Added new typedef g_const_pointer; expunged all incorrect
uses of 'const gpointer'.
- Fixed up warnings that that created,
- Changed GHashFunc and GCompareFunc to take g_const_pointer
arguments. (Necessary, but will cause warnings in existing
code until fixed)
- Added other new const in harmless positions.

size of a GString.

table (GScanner does value-wrapping).
Thu May 14 04:14:12 1998 Tim Janik <>
* glib.h: typedef gint gboolean;
this is needed to provide portability with big-endian platforms (e.g.
try sizeof(bool) for c++ on big-endians - it's 4).
this is also needed to maintain some_union.d_gint==some_union.d_gboolean.
plus, gint to gboolean casts and vice versa need to be possible without
Tue May 12 19:22:58 1998 Owen Taylor <>

GPOINTER_TO_[U]INT for storing small integers integers

Mon May 11 09:53:43 1998 Tim Janik <>
* preserve automake CFLAGS.
* fully rename the created library to
this means we need to change certain portions of the on
major/minor version bumps.
* the -release option is not required anymore.
avoid conditionals. unconditionally define NULL, TRUE, FALSE, MAX,
MIN, ABS and CLAMP, these macros might be screwed from other headers.
Mon May 11 01:44:10 1998 Tim Janik <>
* gdataset.c: new file, gdatasets implement the object data
mechanism from GtkObject. a generic data pointer is associated with
a certain location and a key id.
Sat May 9 20:08:12 1998 Owen Taylor <>
* glib/gmem.c: Experimentally restore GMemChunk
to its primeval state - where mem areas are
freed incrementally instead of searching the tree
every time a mem area is completely empty. Also,
always keep one mem chunk around. (Reduced calls
to malloc() a lot, but doesn't really improve
performance significiantly)
Thu May 7 08:17:28 1998 Tim Janik <>
* glib.h (G_GNUC_PRINTF):

* gutils.c (g_error): Check for recursion.
1998-04-27 Elliot Lee <>
* glist.c (g_list_position): New function to find the position of
a link in a list - should be the inverse of g_list_nth(), but

* gstring.c : Check arguments more carefully,
Tue Apr 7 19:36:48 1998 Owen Taylor <>

Fri Jan 9 20:03:46 1998 Tim Janik <>
* gutils.c (g_strerror): changed message for EAGAIN from
"no more processes" to "try again" since EAGAIN is used with
functions else than fork().

with or without consideration of the current locale.
Mon Dec 15 19:33:58 1997 Tim Janik <>

unneccessary `assert', saved one variable assignment.
(g_list_prepend): saved two (conditioned) variable assignment.
(g_list_insert): saved one (conditioned) variable assignment,
saved one variable assignment.
(g_list_remove): `if' optimized for common code path, saved two
variable assignments by using `g_list_free_1' (which is even
faster) instead of `g_list_free'.

variable assignment.
Wed Dec 10 23:27:20 1997 Tim Janik <>
* glib_pre1.h:
* glib_pre2.h:
* glib.h: this file now gets concatenated by makeglib_h from
glib_pre1.h and glib_pre2.h to merge in glibconfig.h wich got
created by configure (done by Jay Painter).
* glib_pre2.h: the g_assert*() and g_return_*_fail() macros
are wrapped by G_STMT_START and G_STMT_END now, to avoid conflicts
when used within if (...) g_macro(); else ... conditionals.
Tue Dec 17 13:14:07 1996 Peter Mattis <pmattis@charnley.HIP.Berkeley.EDU>
* glib.h: Changed 'g_return_if_fail' and 'g_return_val_if_fail' to
not call 'g_string' but to simply stringify the
