323937 gslice.c in glib 2.9.1 doesn't build on Mac OS X [Bogdan Nicula]
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
- Hash tables are refcounted, and have a boxed type [Tim]
* 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]
* GObject:

- Make g_rename() replace existing files [Tor Lillqvist]
* Misc new API:
- G_GUINT64_CONSTANT macro to define guint64
constants [Andrew Paprocki]
- G_GNUC_WARN_UNUSED_RESULT macro to instruct the
compiler to emit a warning if the value returned
by a function is ignored. [Arjan van de Ven, Alex Larsson]

Overview of Changes from GLib 2.8.x to GLib 2.9.0
* Unicode support:
- The Unicode tables have been updated to Unicode 4.1,
adding several new values to the GUnicodeBreakType
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]
* Pattern matching:
- g_pattern_match has been optimized to avoid
unnecessary recursion.
[Tim, Matthias]
* g_intern_string, g_intern_static_string:
- New functions to intern strings. These are now used
by GObject to avoid duplicating static strings
* g_thread_foreach:
- New function to iterate over all GThreads
[Tim, Matthias]
* g_date_set_time_t, g_date_set_time_val:
- New functions to set a GDate from a time_t or
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,
since they are in glib.h

(Third-party code accessing enumeration values
in GValues should also be changed to access
v_long, not v_int, in order to work on bigendian
64bit machines.)

of 0 meaningfully. [Tim-Philipp Müller]
